The Catalonia Plaza Catalunya hotel with 148 rooms is located right in the centre of Barcelona, a few meters from Plaza Cataluña and Las Ramblas. Built-in 1899 by one of Gaudí’s teachers, Emilio Salas y Cortés, it is a beautiful modernist building.
Completely restored and expanded in 1998, it incorporated the adjoining classic-style building built in 1881.
The entrance and the façade have been maintained and restored from the main building. An impressive marble staircase leads to the first floor, where there are great doors of Cuban mahogany wood, a coffered ceiling and a perfectly preserved dome. The wrought iron railing has been kept on the central staircase of the building, and the original drawings have been restored.
In Martínez Otero Contract we have renovated all the rooms.
