I’m skipping a little ahead of myself and now I’m all kinds of out of order after starting to post my China photos the other day. Buuuuut, it’s not every day I stay in a suite and have a dance party in one of the most beautiful hotels in the world. So thought you guys might want to see this.
The Hotel Palauet graciously put my mom, Sjoerd (big thanks to him for helping me shoot these photos!) and I up while we were in Barcelona and we loved our rooms so much, we invited Val and Adam over to take advantage of our luxurious surroundings! Funny thing is, I didn’t even know we were going to be in Barcelona at the same time. Val saw a photo I’d posted on Instagram of the hotel and was like…”Wait a SECOND. That’s right down the street from us!” Instagram is pretty much the only social media I keep up to real time on where I am so I’m so glad she saw that!
This hotel is one of the most stunning places I’ve ever stayed in. And that’s saying a lot. I’ve been weirdly fortunate and privileged to have slept in incredible hotel rooms around the world.
I loved the grayscale design with bright accents. Everything about our suite made me smile from the Hola! card right down to the heated toilet seats
Our living room was massive with a couch for lounging, a desk for working, and iPod dock for DANCING. Very important.
If you put your hand on the little hand in the bathroom it turned on the lights.
Even the ceilings were amazing. No detail was overlooked at this gorgeous property.
The rooms overlooked the famous Casa Pedrera, one of Gaudi’s designs. It’s an apartment building that he did for a private client and Barcelonians still live there but you can visit one floor and the rooftop where all these ghoulish looking chimney/creatures live. Seba and I went last year and it was amazing!
What a privilege to have a view from our window of that work of art!
My favorite decoration was the paintings on the bedroom walls that almost looked like actual windows.
And there was so much light in the rooms!
These were light designs, I thought that was pretty sweet!
Casa Palauet’s lobby/common areas were also super beautiful.
This stained glass ceiling was unbelievable.
Aaaaaand they had candy jars at the check-in desk.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaand now you know why I loved this hotel so much
Can you spot the gringa in this photo? That was Sjoerd and I destroyed the candy bar. I think I was about to be sick from sugar as I was taking this shot But I was so happy!
I would kill to shoot a wedding here. With the first dance in this atrium type room with this gorgeous light pouring in.
Bonus photo: Here we are after going nuts on the our mini-bar which was not at all mini because our suite included a gorgeous and HUGE kitchen, complete with a variety of wines, beers and other adult beverages.
We had SO much fun at the Palauet. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place to anyone passing through Barcelona. It’s a beautiful hotel, but even better, the vibe of the place just facilitates dance parties and good times…what more could you want?!
Disclaimer: According to the FTC rules I have to tell you that Hotel Palauet sponsored our hotel stay. However, please note — I am not being forced to blog about this and I wouldn’t say any of it if it weren’t true.
