The new Yurbban Passage Hotel revitalizes a late 19th century mercantile building in the charming and arty El Born neighborhood into a boutique treat, featuring a hip rooftop pool, an organic spa, and a restaurant created by a Michelin-starred chef.
Take a 150-year-old building, imbue it with a thoroughly modern boutique sensibility, give it a creamy palette and sleek metallic accents, add picture-perfect pool, spa, and destination restaurant: you’ve set the stage for a memorable Barcelona stay. Yurbban Passage Hotel is well considered. The onsite D'Aprop restaurant features local Catalan produce prepared by a team with a Michelin pedigree. The ideal of Slow Beauty is espoused at the hotel spa—a soothing retreat that only uses organic and fair trade products, so that you can feel good about feeling good. There's plenty of room to stretch out in the guest rooms with their high ceilings and spacious and inviting interiors. The bathrooms feel like an extension of the spa: pockets of peace and rejuvenation.
El Born really is the place to be. Step out of Yurbban Passage Hotel, and you’ll find yourself amid charming narrow alleys lined with history—Roman columns, Jewish baths, gothic facades—and magical old plazas where cool young Catalans spill out of picture perfect bars. It’s a far cry from the tourist scene of La Rambla.
Kick off a day of exploration with a caffeine hit from the best coffee in town, Nomad. Catedral de Barcelona has to be on the to-do list: it looks like the villain’s house in a Disney movie and is as shadowy on the inside as it is spooky on the outside. Don’t miss the stunning cloister with its 13 resident geese. If you’re getting hungry, La Boqueria, the biggest, brightest food market in Europe is just a short walk.
