/ Casa Fuster
It was built between 1908 and 1911 by the architect Lluís Domènech i Muntaner – a key figure in the Catalan art-nouveau movement known as modernisme – and has been declared a 5-star landmark hotel. The Casa Fuster enjoys renowned prestige for its architecture and is part of the Modernista Trail, which is a must-do for visitors to the trailblazing city of Barcelona. It was refurbished in 2004 and has set the benchmark in the sector by combining modernisme, quality and good taste.
The hotel boasts the most cutting-edge interior design and style with a special penchant for curves which is seen in the sofas and the armchairs in the café. The hotel also boasts a solarium and fitness center.
The modernist grandeur and beauty of the panoramic terrace of Hotel Casa Fuster 5* Luxury Grand Monument offers the most exclusive atmosphere in the Catalan capital: El espacio “Blue View by Bombay Sapphire” space.
It is a lookout that offers splendid views of Barcelona , with privileged views of Passeig de Gràcia and Tibidabo mountain.
The Café Vienés is another of the attractions at the Hotel Casa Fuster. Its large windows offer superb views of the Passeig de Gràcia (which can be seen too from the hotel’s outdoor swimming pool). This café, which used to be a meeting point for Barcelona society, imbues the hotel with that special touch of sophistication through its artistic decor, their modernist marble columns and gilded vaulted ceiling
In addition to its exceptional location and renowned modernista architecture, the hotel is also home to the Restaurante Galaxó, where Dídac Alcoriza explores the finest in traditional Catalan cuisine, with his skilled team of chefs that include Óscar Molina, the winner of the 7th Spanish Gastronomy Competition.
