Its coveted position is only half of its coolness!
Having already been crowned as one of the hottest hotel openings of 2020, the first Kimpton Hotel in Spain didn’t disappoint. Located in the heart of the famous Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, Kimpton Vividora Hotel is a vibrant hub for locals and a unique hospitality experience for demanding travelers.
The hotel sits right next to Las Ramblas -the landmark central street- and is within walking distance to the Barceloneta beach while other nearby attractions include the city’s shopping epicenter and the Gothic Cathedral -could you imagine a more coveted position?
Design-wise, Kimpton Vividora Hotel embodies the “cool hotel in Barcelona” dream, with a touch of easy luxury. The elegant, modern architecture combines the areas’ history with its buzzy streets and lively locals and the rooms are inspired by the stylish, laid-back Barcelona apartments, featuring locally designed furniture. A colour palette of warm, earthy tones alongside hints of Mediterranean blue gives a nod to the city’s coastal setting while bespoke bath products and imaginative flourishes bring elements of the neighborhood inside the cosy rooms.
The hotel’s restaurant Fauna evokes the warmth of a classic Barcelonian bourgeois home. It focuses on modern versions of classic home-cooked favorites and exceptional Spanish wines, while guests can enjoy a delicious cafè amb llet, Catalan cheeses and charcuterie at the ground floor’s Cafè Got.
However, the hotel’s highlight has got to be the rooftop bar and terrace, Terraza de Vivi. There, guests will find a swimming pool surrounded by chic loungers and rich greenery topped off with a stunning view of the city.
Tucked away on a pedestrian picturesque street in Barcelona’s city center, this sophisticated boutique hotel is conveniently 20 minutes away from El Prat airport and 10 minutes from both the cruise port and Sants train station. Among the activities offered by the hotel are bike renting for endless hours of sightseeing and an evening social hour for bonding!
