Murmuri

Murmuri

****

Located in the upscale Eixample district on the busy promenade of Rambla de Catalunya, Barcelona boutique hotel Murmuri is a place to see and be seen. All understated elegance – interiors have been designed by British style maven Kelly Hoppen – and quiet intimacy, it hits the right notes for well-heeled locals and visitors alike.

Highlights:

  • The location – it’s right on the Rambla de Catalunya and just minutes from the Passeig de Gracia

  • Super-quiet rooms, even though you’re on one of Barcelona’s busiest streets

  • High-end Mediterranean cuisine in the restaurant – the perfect alternative to tapas

In the know

Also need to know:

The hotel is wheelchair accessible and there are lifts to each floor. There are three disabled-access bedrooms with widened doorways and adapted showers.Guests are free to use the pool and gym at Murmuri’s sister property, the Hotel Majestic, just a five-minute walk away. Use of the pool and gym is free, but there is a small charge for using the spa.

Packing tips:

In summer, sunglasses (designer, of course) are an absolute must to shade your eyes from the glaring Spanish sun – there are so many windows in the hotel that you’ll end up wearing them indoors as well as out.

Dress code:

If you wish to blend in with the moneyed Catalonians tucking into their salmon tartare tartlets, best stick to understated designer glamour. Armand Basi, a Barcelona-born designer, is a hometown favourite.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

‘Don’t do it,’ says Mr Smith, as I sink into the bed, which like the rest of our suite at Barcelona’s hotel Murmuri, is blanketed in shades of cream, linen, taupe, and dove grey – as well as summer sunlight, which has moved my companion to a one-man crusade against jet-lag and morning naps. Just as I surrender to the room’s soft silence he plugs his iPod into the dock on the bedside table, pulls me from the bed, and leads me into the bathroom, where warm water cascades from the top of a glass shower stall. Left to my own devices, I would have opted for the tub, but Barcelona awaits, so a show

Dining information

Restaurant:

Murmuri’s restaurant, elPassatge del Murmuri, is a smart, slender and modern affair that spills out onto a terrace on Rambla Cataluña. The menu makes the most of the region and the season (plenty of steaks, jamon iberico and fresh fish), with tasty tapas-style platillos available to share. Smaller bites and casual fare are dished out in the bar.

Top table:

Ask for a table by the window – perfect for people-watching while you wait for your food to arrive.

Last orders:

Dinner is served in elPassatge del Murmuri until midnight; the last cocktails are mixed in thei bar at 2am.

Room service:

Guests can order from a room service menu from 7am until midnight. The menu contains a selection of dishes from the restaurant menu. Food is also available in the hotel bar and on the bar terrace.

Hotel bar:

Grown-up and elegant in a comfortable, relaxed way, the  bar is separated into two distinct areas by folding black oak screens. Kelly Hoppen’s touch can be seen throughout, and her trademark neutral colour palette perfectly complements the aquamarine sofas, stools and rococo armchairs, providing the air of a glamorous living room. It’s a great spot in which to sip cocktails.
