There is a very timeless feel about Hotel National Arts & Métiers, the kind of vibe you can only find in the heart of France’s capital. Although well kept, you can see the long life the façade has had through the years which only adds more of an authentic Parisian aura to this piece of history.

The beautiful entrance looks like something you’d find in an old film with its romantically lit hallway and quaint windows on either side. Designed using the finest materials and crafted by French savoir-fair artisans. The architect Raphael Navot creates the perfect blend of innovation and artisanship.

Since starting, as rooms solely for their friends and family guests, the hotel has evolved and become one of the world’s most exquisite hotels. Surrounded by lush rice fields and a garden of vegetables and local ceremonial plants, the hotel itself is designed out of bamboo. Bamboo is well known for its sustainable qualities which what makes it so special in design, plus the factor that it’s incredible strong and well maintained.

The heart and soul of the hotel is also emphasized in its interior where they’ve collected treasures from their travels around the world, from places including Africa, Indonesia and South America. “Bambu Indah inspires excitement about how the future can be.”

In the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, history, art and design come together in a boutique hotel whose historic façade, dating back to 1846, is directly oriented towards the Mediterranean.

All its spacious and luminous rooms have balconies through which the gentle sea breeze flows and in which one breathes the elegant atmosphere and impeccable design that combines simple lines, white backgrounds and parquet floors with geometric designs of tiles that recall the classic Barcelona style.

Its roof, called “El sueño de Picasso” (Picasso’s dream), stands out for being the painter’s first studio, where you can enjoy spectacular views of the Port Vell Marina, while tasting the gastronomic delights of Chef Marc Gascons, awarded with a Michelin star.

A pleasure for the senses in a privileged Barcelona location.
