We were invited to meet in first person the facilities of the new and exciting Yurbban Trafalgar Hotel, the first hotel of its kind to open in Barcelona, and certainly not the last, as more branches are expected to open soon.
When you visit Barcelona -especially for the first time- you’re hoping to embrace local culture as much as you can and in this sense, Yurbban Trafalgar Hotel might just be what you’re looking for. “Live Barcelona as a native” is their motto and you’ll be surprised by how easy they’ll make you feel at home and how quickly they’ll help you click with the local culture.
This fancy 3 star hotel has three main features that got our attention. First of all, the whole staff -besides helpful and efficient- is fluent in English.
Second, social spaces have been designed with chic and alluring details to make you feel cozy and special. These spaces are generous and want to encourage social bonding between guests. For example, you´ll notice that the minibar is located in the lobby (featuring all kinds of catalan treats and beverages) so feel free to enjoy them wherever you want, but not just in your room. Computers are available for all guests in the lobby as well.
Third, now that we’re in the subject of food, this is where you start to be a little more native. Ever noticed how most hotels everywhere always have the same stuff for breakfast? At Yurbban Trafalgar, breakfast (and every other meal) has a very special and different touch, featuring super fresh products and most importantly, only local options.
At restaurant “El Panarra” you can start the day with a catalan breakfast ordering freshly squeezed juices (energetic or antioxidant), coca bread with tomato (the uber famous pa amb tomaquet), followed by a great selection of catalan cheeses, sausages, homemade jams, a delicious tortilla or maybe try one of their special treats: “senyors entrepans” which could be translated into something like “mother of all sandwiches”.
Yurbban Trafalgar has 6 types of rooms to choose from with all the comforts you need (including generous and free wifi) : Yurbban Tiny, Yurbban Double, Yurbban Double Interior Plus, Yurbban Junior Suite, Yurbban Tiny Terrace and Yurbban Double Terrace, the last two feature private terraces with cool city views. Feel free to use the 24-hour gym if you need to workout whenever you want.
But if you’re in need of sunlight and great views don’t miss the breathtaking terrace on the last floor, a stunning and charming setting that divides the space between the pool and sunbeds and a chill out bar on the other side, all looking directly to Barcelona’s biggest landmarks like Montjuic, Sagrada Familia, Tibidabo or the Olimpic Port.
In their effort of showing you the best of Barcelona, the staff at Yurbban Trafalgar will guide you and offer advice on your quest for what to see and what to do in Barcelona. It won’t be difficult for you either, as this hotel has a great location, accessible to the public transportation system and very close to Urquinaona and Catalunya square, Palau de la Musica Catalana, Parc de la Ciutadella and Passeig de Gràcia.
Small details make the difference!
