Spain has the right to be proud of its reputation throughout Europe as a sunny, cheerful and fiesta loving country, a land with an exceptionally rich cultural heritage and an economic miracle which has served as a model for others. The Iberian Peninsula was undoubtedly a dream destination, long before the French film, “The Spanish Inn” gave it the aura of a young, cool and trendy country. The film takes place in Barcelona, which has become the city to visit in Spain. The lively, amusing and festive atmosphere here, seems to be in a constant state of renewal, offering the visitor an endless number of sensations. Barcelona is a magical city where history and the contemporary blend together without any transition, and where tradition flirts with modern preoccupations, something that doesn’t seem to bother anyone in the least. In the heart of Barcelona, we find the city’s most picturesque quarter, where Roman and medieval roots are still visible. The Barri Gotic or Gothic quarter, in addition to being what its name implies, is also the ideal environment for a hotel which embodies, as none other, the timeless chic of Barcelona.
Opened in 2003, the Neri Hotel is a luxury boutique hotel with an old world charm. Of all the hotels that opened in Barcelona during the past decade, it is undoubtedly the one which combines history and modernity the best, and for a good reason. It’s located in a building whose origins go back to the 12th century! Just a few steps from the cathedral, in the heart of the Gothic quarter, the Neri Hotel blends in perfectly with the environment…from the outside. However, although the foundations of the façade have been kept intact, interior decorator, Cristina Gabas has created a modern space in the common areas and the rooms, so that the Neri does not resemble a museum. The elegant décor is in perfect harmony with the prevailing atmosphere. What is even more striking is the work carried out in order to appeal to the senses. The decorative harmony is in tune with the carefully selected music, the materials used awaken the sense of touch and the aromas diffused add to this totally sensual experience. Then, after appreciating the taste of the décor, it’s only a few steps away from tasting the restaurant’s cuisine. Spread over three floors, the 22 rooms are all cocoons of well being, enabling guests to “recharge their batteries” and take advantage of the hotel’s very special ambience. Each floor has its own theme: Renaissance, flowers and landscapes. The terrace has been set up according to the principles of Feng Shui, for relaxing in the sun and of course, enjoying the excellent view of the Barri Gotic.
The world of cinema has also succumbed to the Neri’s charms and its highly atmospheric neighborhood. Among the films shot here are Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona and the film version of Patrick Susskind’s novel, The Perfume, directed by Tom Tykwer.
