The Cram hotel opened its doors in 2004 in the Eixample quarter in the center of Barcelona. The Art Deco facade dating back to 1892 is a throwback to the original classical style hotel, although the highly elaborate lighting quickly indicates the futuristic spirit of the site. The pop and funky architecture in strong red tones gives the hotel an avant-garde feel and an approach to design based on the functionality characterized by the building. The guest here is quickly made to feel at ease and invited to share the experience of a festive and hospitable hotel in the true Catalonian spirit. The 67 elegant and warm rooms and suites combine design, high tech and sumptuous Gaston and Daniela fabrics. There are two absolute musts at the Cram: the open air rooftop swimming pool with a spectacular view of the city, and one of Barcelona’s hot spots, the very chic, award winning Gaig restaurant, with its excellent gastronomic Catalonian cuisine.


Spain is a tremendously diverse country with Catalonia, the cultural center of the country, Andalusia, with the remains of its Moslem era, the Costa del Sol, although somewhat disfigured, but still a favorite of vacationers throughout the world, and the South, famous for its traditions and its great sense of hospitality. Spain is all this as well as a great economic success since the end of the Franco dictatorship in 1975. The “Spanish miracle” has been setting an example for all of Europe up to 2007. Spain is also a country with a great many different identities and languages such as Castilian, Catalonian and Basque. Another enviable aspect of the country is its nightlife, which is famous far beyond the borders of Europe. A prime example of this aspect of Spain is Barcelona, the Catalonian capital and a major economic, cultural and tourist center. Located between the mountains and the sea, the city enjoys a Mediterranean climate, which attracts millions of visitors. In addition, Barcelona has an incredible and unusual architectural heritage and an equally incredible “joie de vivre”. All this combines to make it an ideal place to visit. The buildings, designed and built by the architect, Antonio Gaudi have left an indelible mark on the city. These include the Güell Palace, the Casa Milà and of course the Familia Sagrada basilica, all of which are masterpieces and classified as world heritages by UNESCO. The Catalonian capital however, continues to innovate architecturally in the category of luxury hotels.

Design at the service of the guest

The Hotel Cram opened in 2004 in the Eixample quarter just five minutes from the famous Passeig de Gracia Avenue where one finds an island of discord; three controversial buildings adjacent to each by the three greatest modern Catalonian architects. There was never any controversy however, about the Hotel Cram. Everyone liked it. Its pop and funky architecture with a preponderance of red tones, represents an aesthetically avant-garde concept and especially an approach to design with the accent on functionality, which makes the guest feel at ease without being submerged by strange forms and shapes. Instead, he is invited to share the experience of a hotel as hospitable and festive as the Catalonian spirit. The Art Deco façade dating back to 1892 gives one the initial impression of a classic hotel, but the elaborate play of light soon indicates the futuristic spirit of the place. A small 1970s touch after; the guest is caught up in the originality of the Cram. For those who enjoy strong emotional experiences, the Hotel Cram has two must places to visit: the open air swimming pool located on the rooftop terrace with a spectacular view of the city, and the very chic Gaig restaurant, one of Barcelona’s hot spots. Directed by Carles Gaig and founded in 1869, it is a shrine dedicated to Catalonian cuisine, which has been redecorated and sublimated in an exceptional manner.

The common areas of the hotel have been designed in a very fluid style. There’s a great deal of light and water in an environment whose vivid colors contrast sharply with the black ceiling.
