Set in a beautiful building, this elegant 4 star hotel intelligently combines a modernist aesthetic with modern trends to create a unique and refined atmosphere.

The hotel entrance is large and welcoming. The reception is open 24/7 and the staff speak multiple languages.

The Hotel Indigo restaurant

The “Gastro Bar Catalunya” restaurant gives onto an internal courtyard and offers local dishes as well as a creative Catalan menu.

The hotel bar

The presence of red velvet stools and bottles of alcohol placed on shelves evokes a refined 1930s-style bar.

The immense internal courtyard at the Hotel Indigo

  • One of the best things about the Hotel Indigo is its huge courtyard (quite common in Barcelona), spread out over two floors. On the first level you will find loungers and couches for enjoying the sun and a drink in a very tranquil atmosphere.

Hotel Indigo terrace

On the same level you will also find a fitness studio, which is open 24/7 and arranged in a glass air-conditioned room with ultra-modern machinery, weights and stretching equipment.

The pool is located on the floor below and it is open from 11am to 7pm. It is not very big but it is enough to cool down in.

Modernist-themed decor

The 77 rooms of this hotel are tastefully arranged and inspired by the Catalan modernist period. For this reason all of the rooms have a wall that is completely dedicated to a photo or an illustration of this period.

Elegant, air-conditioned and sound-proof, they all have every necessary comfort, including a satellite flat screen television, a balcony or terrace, a mini-bar, tea and Nespresso coffee machine (included in the room rate).
