  • Overview

    Set across a couple of lovely Art Nouveau apartment buildings in Barcelona’s popular Eixample district, the aptly named Retrome (= Retro + Home) offers a fun and vintage-vibe base for your stay in this lively city.

    This is not your run of the mill hotel, referring to itself as more of an 'urban retreat', with rooms found in three different apartments across #81 and #85 Carrer de Girona and check in and breakfast run from a cool little bar set between them at #83.

    In line with its name, this place has a retro theme throughout – with the building’s original features set neatly alongside cool vintage furnishings and brightly coloured contemporary prints. If you have a thing for interesting floors, you’ll love the tiling here – from the original ajulelos in the lobby of #85 to the geometric patterns in most of the bedrooms.

    Wifi can be a little slow and it's worth noting that reception is not manned 24 hours a day, so you will need to confirm your arrival time ahead of travel but the staff are charming and offer the warmest of welcomes. What’s more, for it’s style and location, this spot is surprisingly great value too. A hidden gem ripe for discovery.


    Retrome is set in the heart of bustling Eixample with its pretty tree-lined streets, gorgeous architecture, amazing cafes and restaurants and fantastic shopping. The hotel is just 5-minutes’ walk from elegant Passeig de Gracia and a 10-minute walk from Plaça Catalunya and the Sagrada Familia. The beach is a 35-minute walk away or just a few stops on the metro.

    The lovely staff are happy to help arrange tours and transfers.


    Breakfast is available and there is a cool little bar. Some of the apartments come with a small kitchenette should you wish to self-cater otherwise you’re spoilt for choice on great cafés and restaurants nearby.
