Boutique hotels in Barcelona, buildings full of history and detail

The first boutique hotels began appearing in the 1980s in global cities like London, San Francisco or New York. Their decisive expansion was in the late 1990s, when some establishments decided that they wanted to be different from the big chain hotels with standard services. In contrast, the first boutique hotels wanted to show their particular style and individual character.

Some characteristics of boutique hotels are their customized service; their beautiful architecture, design and intimate decoration; and their situation: they are always located in urban and cosmopolitan cities and towns.

Another example is the Generator Barcelona, located in the popular Gracia quarter, which has interior decoration materials and objects from Els Encants (second hand market very famous in Barcelona) with comic pages on the walls and handmade paper lamps, done by a resident craftsman of the quarter.
