Location: Barcelona, Spain
Address: Carrer del Rec Comtal, 19, Barcelona, 08003
A hotel in which past and present come together seamlessly to offer guests a new way of experiencing Barcelona, discovering its history, and exploring one of its oldest and most authentic neighborhoods, La Ribera.
Rec Hotel Barcelona is named after the neighborhood’s original character, defined by the canal that once powered mills and fuelled the handiwork of artisanal craftspeople. The new Rec reflects the cosmopolitan nature of the city in the 21st century and celebrates Barcelona’s vibrant cultural scene thanks to collaborations with local artists that embellish and vitalize its spaces.
Light, color and simple open spaces create the perfect atmosphere in which to connect, relax, and get to know the city from a unique vantage point.
Rec Hotel Barcelona is designed for the cosmopolitan guest who enjoys blending in with natives, exploring the city’s lesser-known spots, trying new foods, soaking up the charm of favorite local joints, and ending the day with a few cocktails on a terrace overlooking the cityscape… all this and more awaits you at the Rec.
The Rec Lounge, or most unique and carefully crafted space, is a cozy area on the hotel’s 7th floor. It feels simultaneously private and open to the outdoors, thanks to its enormous windows which let in natural light all day long. It’s also a lounge-without-borders; the space is what you make of it, and guests are encouraged to relax in its rich ambiance for breakfast, at the end of the day, or over tapas and cocktails with friends.
To really top it off, the REC Lounge has a terrace with pool, solarium, and spectacular views over the district of Sant Pere, Santa Caterina i la Ribera. It’s simply an amazing space to spend time on your visit. Because we want your experience in Barcelona to be more than a souvenir. It’s an interactive, dynamic place, where you’re the star of the show!
