The Gothic Terrace offers the perfect excuse to relax with the best panoramic views of the Gothic church and the city
The H10 Madison is the new 4* superior establishment that H10 Hotels has opened just metres from the cathedral, in the heart of Barcelona’s historic centre. The hotel has 101 bright and spacious rooms, a restaurant and cocktail bar, two meeting rooms and an amazing terrace with heated plunge pool and unmatched views of the cathedral. All this accompanied by an elegant interior design and luxury rooms that recall the building’s stately past.
The H10 Madison can be found on Dr. Joaquim Pou street, between Via Laietana and Plau de la Seu, just next to the Barcelona Cathedral. This privileged location in the heart of the city’s Gothic Quarter and right by the cosmopolitan neighbourhood of the Born makes the establishment an unmistakable reference for travellers seeking to immerse themselves in the capital’s history and enjoy all its major attractions.
This exclusive establishment is located in a historic, seven-floor, Novecentista building that has been totally refurbished. The interior design, crafted by the renowned studio of Lázaro Rosa-Violán, is focused on restoring some of the building’s original features which, together with its high ceilings, gives the project an air of grandeur.
The project has shown total respect for the essence of the building, which dates back to 1928, and has made use of high-quality yet simple materials and elements inspired in Barcelona’s industrial design, to create elegant and timeless spaces.
For example, the carpeting in the hotel’s corridors, which mimics the hydraulic flooring of typical Barcelona flats, and the window shutters made from upcycled wood from the atrium. Other examples include the raffia and natural fabrics typical of classic Catalan furniture which have been used to cover the walls of the rooms.
Bright and spacious rooms
The H10 Madison’s comfortable rooms are designed to create a peaceful atmosphere perfect for relaxation. Bright and spacious, they are fully soundproofed and feature an elegant interior design where neutral colours and fine materials predominate. All the rooms offer views either of the city’s cathedral, the courtyard typical of the Barcelona Gothic Quarter or the beautiful atrium.
The exclusive Junior Suites deserve special mention, measuring 32 m² and comprising a spacious living room with sofa bed, bedroom with dressing room, and a large bathroom with double shower.
All the hotel’s rooms boast top-of-the-range features, such as 48” and 55” LED TVs with international channels, smart temperature control, Nespresso machine and minibar or digital in-room safe. The bathrooms have professional hairdryer, magnifying mirror, robe, slippers and Rituals amenities.
Dining options and an impressive terrace
Located on the ground floor is The Avenue, an elegant space with direct access from the street that includes a restaurant and cocktail bar perfect for enjoying some tasty Mediterranean inspired tapas with a glass of wine or a cocktail. Along with a selection of salads, an assortment of Iberian cold cuts and sandwiches, there are tasty suggestions such as the classic hummus, olive tapenade and beetroot with pita bread, tuna tataki with cous cous and mango mayonnaise or crispy coconut prawns with passion fruit sauce.
The restaurant also offers an exquisite breakfast buffet and carefully selected hot dishes made to order with high-quality, fresh products.
There’s no doubt, however, that guests will be most surprised by the impressive Terrasa del Gòtic, located on the top floor with panoramic views of the Cathedral and the city. It’s the perfect outdoor spot to enjoy a delicious cocktail and signature tapas in spring and summer.
The terrace also offers an exclusive area for hotel guests with heated plunge pool and solarium, where they can relax and enjoy Barcelona’s pleasant climate after a day out in the city.
Lastly, the H10 Madison has two meeting rooms with natural light and everything you might need to hold meetings and events. They also have direct access to a private terrace.
Complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the entire establishment and there is a Business Corner available as well.
Undoubtedly, the H10 Madison is an excellent option, providing a unique base from which to visit the city.
