Almanac Barcelona Opening Summer 2017

March 28, 2017 – Almanac Hotels is a new luxury hospitality tastemaker developing iconic hotels in landmark locations. Today they announce the first in a collection of luxury hotels that is scheduled to open in the summer of 2017 - Almanac Barcelona. Located on Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 619-621, the hotel will be comprised of 91 luxurious accommodations and has undergone a complete renovation over the last two years. In a prime location, the hotel is steps from Paseo de Gracia, where guests can find stylish shopping, restaurants, bars and museums.

Design and Accommodations

The prestigious architectural firm of OAB Office of Architecture in Barcelona and founder Carlos Ferrater, conceived the architectural redevelopment of two buildings from different eras into one seamless property. The Jaime Beriestain Studio, an award-winning interior and landscape architectural firm, has created a design of discreet refinement using a wealth of textures and different materials. Grey, beige and gold tones were chosen throughout while accents of oak and walnut have a subtle patina that emanates a feeling of warmth. Antique mirrors strategically placed are a perfect complement to the extensive use of marble from Ibiza.

Spacious Suites

A select number of rooms have a balcony or terrace. A particularly unique feature in many of the rooms is a bowed window design that incorporates a sofa into a windowed nook. Called ‘Cube Rooms' they open up the skyline views allowing natural light to flood into the interiors. (The standard room size is 34m2 for greater comfort, spacious suites range from 45m2-125m2).


Prepare for the buzz that will be created by Azimuth, a term used in navigation to chart a path using astronomy. Come and meet at the apex of Barcelona's social life where the dedicated team will guide and transport you from morning sunrise through to the course of a starry night.

The pool and sun lounge will remain exclusive to hotel residents and serve as the perfect place to relax and enjoy light bites. The captivating panoramic roofop bar, interior lounge and terrace are open to all and will serve an inventive cocktail menu to transport your taste buds on a journey around the globe.


Línia is the hotel’s Mediterranean brasserie whose name is inspired by the iconic grid system of Barcelona that cuts through the heart of the city. Taking into consideration that hunger clocks are not always in sync when traveling, the restaurant will offer an all-day dining and sharing menu where denizens and traveler's lives intersect from morning to night.

Our skilled barmen will serve a select cocktail menu along with a choice of regional wines and the sherry of Jerez all in a relaxed atmosphere where both locals and visitors rub elbows. Guests can access the restaurant directly from the street or though the hotel. Although the hotel is easy to find, if one’s sense of direction is not the best, or reading a map isn’t easy, just plug the coordinates into a smartphone to guide the way: Latitude + 41.390527 Longitude -2.169314

Private Events | Additional Amenities

The Mezzanine level has one conference space for 10 people and two private dining facilities with natural light. On the lower level, there is a venue that can be used for small conferences or other occasions. Meeting rooms are all enhanced with the latest technology required for today’s business leaders. Offering a complete menu of needs for every guest, additional amenities at the hotel include Fitness and Wellness facilities, equipped with one treatment room, a steam sauna and relaxation lounge.

Connect & Collect

To enhance the overall experience at the hotel, Almanac Hotels has developed a ‘Connect & Collect’ app. Tapping into the latest technology, and using an IOS or Android device, guests will have access to a personal concierge whether they be in the hotel or out and about (without incurring phone charges), a guide to interests in the area, free international calling and more. From the pre-arrival experience to departure, the intention is to utilize the latest technology to encourage human interaction with the hotel team to make the stay more complete.
