Barcelona is a one-of-a-kind city, where a rich history and an auspicious present rendezvous beautifully on the coast of the Mediterranean. You can see it in the art and architecture, from the Sagrada Familia and the Gothic Quarter’s Picasso Museum to MACBA in El Raval and Frank Gehry’s Golden Fish overlooking the seafront. You can hear it in the music, from pachanga to Catalan jazz to the sounds coming from the iconic Razzamatazz Discoteca. You can definitely taste it in the local specialties from wine, cheese and jamón to churros con chocolate served up in low-key cafes and five-star restaurants alike. That’s why it’s no surprise that curious travelers worldwide are drawn to the alluring energy of this seaside urban playground with its popular tourist attractions and hidden gems that you’ll only discover if a local is willing to share a best-kept secret or two.
Of course Kimpton Vividora, in Barcelona’s City Center, places you in the midst of it all. Walk the labyrinthine streets of our Gothic Quarter environs, replete with charming boutiques, buzzy restaurants and stunning examples of historic architecture or venture further afield to explore the city at large. No matter where your adventures take you, you’ll return to a hotel that plays its dual role impeccably—that of a refined urban retreat and a local mainstay, deeply immersed in its vibrant surrounding community.
