WITTMORE HOTEL

Gothic glam from top to bottom in this soulful adults-only Barcelona bolthole

 To really appreciate the charisma of WITTMORE HOTEL, you have to go inside. After all, there’s a ‘no photos’ policy here. Instead, you’re invited to pause and soak up the spirit of this made-for-grown-ups boutique hotel that brings a hint of New York sophistication to Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter. 

A stay here can be about rest or revelry. Turn the lights down and put your feet up in the refined bedrooms. Or live the high life up at the rooftop bar. By day, the bedrooms show their British face, with designer details such as Marshall speakers and bold wallpaper prints. And at night, WITTMORE HOTEL has a modern member’s club feel – with a sociable, stylish vibe from the sun deck that serves cocktails poolside, to the downstairs CONTRABAN restaurant. There’s even a fire in the bar here, for extra snug-ness.  

When inside WITTMORE HOTEL you’ll fly under the radar. But outside, Barcelona’s buzz surrounds you. Ditch the map and lose yourself in the enigmatic Gothic Quarter that the hotel calls home. Or museum-hop your way around the city – with art, history and culture in every direction. You’re not far away from the beach either, as well as green parks and gardens.


Enjoy your stay!

Environmentally Conscious

On track to become carbon neutral (and eventually carbon negative), WITTMORE HOTEL carefully follows a sustainability plan created through its ongoing GreenME partnership, exclusively using LED lighting, recycling wherever possible, and switching to an 100% green electricity supplier. The hotel has removed single-use plastic from its operations and collects plastics from the sea in collaboration with Gravity Wave, a Spanish social enterprise dedicated to cleaning the Mediterranean with traditional fishermen and recycling waste into valuable products. The rooftop and vertical gardens are maintained by drip irrigation systems, and swathes of surrounding countryside are reforested by the WITTMORE’s parent company, Anima Hotels.

Cultural Custodians

Set in the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, WITTMORE HOTEL encourages guests to visit nearby attractions with its interactive map – simply scan the QR code for local points of cultural interest and historical significance. The hotel hosts rotating exhibitions by Barcelona-based artists in the lobby and restaurant areas, which change every two months. Alongside poetry recitals and literary festivals, the WITTMORE library is stocked by an LGBTQ+ book specialist with thought-provoking reading material each month. Special Catalan days are always celebrated, including the Diada de Sant Jordi, by placing a book and rose in every room and detailing these traditions to guests.

Community Minded

Working closely with local recruiters for both key positions and the wider team, the WITTMORE’s staff is mostly made up of Catalonians who feel passionately about Barcelona and its surrounds. The hotel’s CONTRABAN restaurant supports local suppliers by favouring Catalan produce, including cheeses from nearby dairy farms and an exclusively regional wine list – even the chocolates left on your pillow at turn-down are from a local artisan confectioner. In addition to volunteering in local hospitals and dedicating resources to community projects, the WITTMORE makes ongoing contributions to local churches, such as restoring the city’s only large Baroque-style organ at Sant Felip Neri.

Lovely boutique hotel!

Our room was sparkling clean and well appointed. The best part is the location of the hotel and having a very quiet room. We never felt the hustle bustle of Barcelona even though we were so close to everything! The staff is friendly and helpful.

Excellent location, extremely helpful and friendly staff

Even though the hotel can't be reached by car or taxi, the location is excellent and quiet. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Lastly, do not miss out on the views from the rooftop

A whole vibe

We loved the deep, moody decor and vibe of this hotel. It is beautiful! We got the tiny room which was definitely tiny but again, very nicely decorated. The breakfast stood out - the waiter was so, so friendly and the food was delicious. Location is great.

Food And Drinks

Discover CONTRABAN Restaurant by Chef Alain Guiard. CONTRABAN hosts breakfast, lunch and dinner with relaxed sittings mirroring the laid-back air here. Menus tend to feature a mix of British and Catalan cuisine. When the sun shines, there’s nowhere quite like the ultra-sophisticated roof terrace or the cool courtyard. And in winter, the firelit bar dials up the cosiness.

CONTRABAN

Served Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner A proposal by chef Alain Guiard inspired by the emotions of a creative process and accompanied by an ephemeral list of local wines.

Sobreatico Rooftop by CONTRABAN

The private vantage point from where you can observe the heartbeat of the city and its rhythm. It is inspired by the local custom of going up to the rooftop to enjoy the cool of the witching hour between laughs and chats with the neighbours. Sobreatico presents a more casual and fun gastronomic version of the Contraban restaurant. Enjoy a menu of cocktails and refreshing drinks to savour while the sun goes down.
