From the balcony at Sir Victor, you will overlook the bustle going down on Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona's unmissable shopping avenue connecting Plaça de Catalunya to the Gràcia neighbourhood. Located where the Omm hotel stood (one of the first boutique hotels in Barcelona), the five-star establishment has retained the modernist façade conceived by Cappella Garcia, in a tribute to local culture. The name thus derives from Caterina Albert i Paradís, feminist Catalan author of the 19th century who signed her work with the masculine pen name of Victor Català. She was a major actor in what is known as the modernist movement.
Catalan country is everywhere to be found in the hotel lobby, where a bookshelf provides a wealth of information and regional literature. Various works of art are scattered around the pared-down rooms and suites, like the abstract paintings of world-famous local artist Alfons Borrel. When night falls, head to the rooftop, where a swimming pool and a tapas bar await. There, you will enjoy the panoramic views of the city to the sounds of the best DJs. This is what the Catalan life is all about.
