Why so chic?
Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
Gran Canaria’s capital, Las Palmas, is a surprisingly great destination for a winter sun city break and there’s no better place to base yourself than Bed&Chic. The sweet boutique B&B couldn’t be better placed, with a 5-minute walk taking you to the golden sands of Playa de las Canteras and overlooking the lovely Santa Catalina Park.
Run by five brothers, this Chic Retreat hosts an intimate, laidback vibe and, as such, guests are somewhat left to their own devices ‒ perfect for the independent traveller. Having said that the staff couldn’t be more charming, and are willing to assist in any way that they can.
Please note that this is an adults-only property and is only suitable for those over 18.
The hotel’s restaurant, La Catalina, serves a simple breakfast in addition to lunch and dinner. In true lazy weekend spirit, brunch is available on Sundays. For an evening cocktail, head to the rooftop bar, El Tendedero, where you can enjoy your drink alongside cityscape views.
The 23 rooms are modern and simple, with quirky little design details dotted throughout. Located on the buzzing Santa Catalina Square, it can get a little noisy in the evenings, but the incredibly central setting more than makes up for that. While all rooms are perfectly comfortable, some of the pricier options come with leafy park views.
The 3rd floor is home to a rooftop terrace, where the cityscape views are only part of its appeal; from snuggling up on beanbags to sipping on an evening tipple, it’s a charming spot to lounge after a busy day’s exploring.
Venturing beyond the Bed&Chic couldn’t be easier, with just a 5-minute walk taking you to the beach and a 15-minute bus or cab ride to the historic Vegueta, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
It is worth noting that reception is not manned 24-hours a day, but there is a telephone reception available to call a member of staff if needed out of hours.
