Near impossible to find, The Wittmore Hotel is an oasis of warmth and elegance and sits at the end of a short, dark alley in in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter. Plush, English/Scottish hunting-lodge interiors of checked carpets, thick burgundy velvet curtains, old-master-style oil paintings of a fictional Lord Wittmore hanging against bird-print wallpaper result in a clubby, speakeasy atmosphere (no children; no photos). The boutique hotel is located an 8-minute walk from the Museu Picasso and a 9-minute walk from the nearest metro station.
Warmly decorated rooms have a retro vibe with Marshall speakers, push-button telephones, vintage wooden bedside tables and deep red sofas with stag-print cushions. They overlook the courtyard's hanging garden and come with flat-screen TVs, minibars and marble bathrooms. Room service is available.
Famous for turning down a Michelin Star in 2014, Chef Albert Ventura oversees The Witty Restaurant serving Mediterranean cuisine. Breakfast has an à la carte selection of hot dishes, along with pastries, fruit, yoghurt, ham and cheese. The bar is the main draw of the hotel, and its crackling fire could not be cosier in winter (though the patio is also a highlight in summer), and you can also get a drink up on the roof terrace, year round from the eclectic cocktail list prepared by an expert mixologist. The rooftop sun deck has cheerful yellow-and-white striped loungers, a plunge pool and 360-degree views of the city.
