Our favourite rooms
We love the very masculine Superior Doubles, which have the feel of an architect’s studio. The starkness of their design means that touches such as the high-gloss black doors, which come with English-style brass knockers, and hinged headboards upholstered in vertical black pinstripe really stand out. They also come with their own seating areas.
There is no swimming pool at Hotel Pulitzer Barcelona – all guests, however, can use the facilities at the nearby Holmes Place Fitness Centre for a small fee.
Balenciaga finery for swanning around the rooftop terrace bar on warm, sultry nights.
The hotel offers a programme of live music during the summer months.
Kids are welcome, though Pulitzer doesn’t consider itself to be a family hotel. Children’s facilities are at a minimum, though babysitting with a local nanny is available from €10 an hour.
