We are a 20 room hotel in Poble Sec, Barcelona. Hotel Brummell is an urban oasis created by friends.
Off the beaten track, but an easy walk to the city, mountain or sea, Brummell encourages guests to explore Barcelona, but also to stay in. We invite you to come have a leisurely meal, a swim, a drink, a sauna or just retreat to your room.
The hotel was built and designed to be relaxed, intimate, imaginative and seemless. The facade of the building remains just as it was in 1870 while the interior has completely transformed. The architect, Inma Rábano, worked with us to rehabilitate this historic building into a structure that could house the details. The design was done by our friends, the Australian born Barcelona based duo, Blankslate. Based on their numerous travels to Sri Lanka, and their passion for Geoffrey Bawa’s “tropical modernism”.
Concrete prefab sinks meet glossy turquoise tiles mixed with raw terracotta tiles and warm wooden floors. Pendant and aplique lights from interdisciplinary design studio Atelier Areti and original canteen utility chairs from UK brand Very Good and Proper. All over the hotel you can find original design pieces from brands like Marset, Atelier Areti, Flos, Skargaarden, Massproductions, or Egon Eiermann.
El Poble Sec is a neighbourhood in the Montjuïc mountain district of Barcelona. It’s local and charming, and home to what we consider to be some of Barcelona’s best restaurants, bars, and arts institutions. And it’s only a 15 minute walk from the city center. Montjuïc is a marvel and we are right next to it. It’s a perfect days escape from the dense city as it’s home to the botanical gardens, many historical monuments, the olympic grounds and some of our city’s best museums. Whether you want live music, performance, a local bar or a hidden club, our neighborhood has it. One of Barcelona’s main arteries, you’ll be walking distance to many cultural, lively and tempting possibilities.
