Reviews / Hotel

One of Barcelona’s newest luxury hotels is located at the corner of modernity and tradition. As the name indicates, The Corner Hotel is situated on a flat corner in Barcelona’s L’Eixample neighborhood, a vast area of the city full of Modernist buildings and grid-like avenues.

 

A grand ground floor is accented with black and gold decor, with a decadent bar and casual dining lounge located to the left of the main entrance.

 

Amenities available to guests include a terrace solarium, an outdoor pool (open from April to September), a business center, a buffet breakfast, meeting rooms and free access to Duet Fit Universitat.

 

If your visit involves a Sunday, take advantage of the hotel’s Brunch Around The Corner with music from Barcelona-born Joan Tena. Brunch is available 12:30–3:30 p.m. and costs €21 per person.

 

Guests at The Corner are within close proximity to Mercat del Ninot, a local market with 81 stalls, tasting bars and stunning architectural elements. Craft beer fiends can visit BierCab, BrewDog or Garage Beer Co., all of within walking distance of The Corner Hotel, while cocktail enthusiasts can tickle their fancy at the nearby Gato Negro or the Mary Boone Bar.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”

Your Home Away From Home

Experience a big-city hotel stay that doesn’t feel like your typical urban visit at Chicago’s Claridge House, nestled in the sought-after Gold Coast neighborhood. The hotel’s sophisticated décor and serene residential ambience foster the atmosphere of an oasis amid the hustle and bustle of a busy metropolis.
