Design and Accommodations
The redevelopment of the fundamental architecture and exterior conceived 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.
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).

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

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.
