The Cotton House Hotel has an excellent location in the heart of Barcelona. The hotel is located just a few minutes walking from the main highlight of Gaudi and 5 minutes walking to Las Ramblas, Plaza Catalunya and Gothic Area. Also the Paseo de Gracia is very close with its designer boutiques and luxury shops.Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available at this property.This is a historic building.This accommodation has a very small lobby.The Cotton House Hotel stands imposingly on the site of the former headquarters of the Cotton Textile Foundation, an emblematic 19th-century building in the neoclassical style which is a landmark in the city of Barcelona. Built on the orders of a family of the Catalan bourgeoisie when the textile industry was at its height, it was sold in the middle of the 20th Century to the Cotton Producers Guild which established its headquarters there with the aim of housing the highest possible number of cotton-producing bodies and services: the idea was to create a genuine Cotton House Hotel. The original elements of the building have been conserved, such as the imposing marble staircase, delicate parquet and boiserie embellishing ceilings, floors and walls in some of the rooms. Also the famous spiral staircase built in 1957, the main feature of which is that it is not supported on the floor below, but is suspended from the metal frame of the upper floor, to give a light and airy aspect. At the same time, all the facilities of the building have been completely replaced, resulting in a distinguished setting full of history, yet modern and comfortable at the same time.Please be advised that the pricing for this room type is for 2 adults only. For any additional guests, there is an extra person fee of 90 - 110 EUR per adult/night to be paid directly to the hotel on arrival.(c) Donvand Limited 2016
