The New Barcelo Raval Hotel in Barcelona (12 Pics)

If you're looking for a contemporary hotel in central Barcelona may we suggest the Barcelo Raval? This modern design hotel will make you do a double take the moment you walk through their doors. Designers like Jaime Hayon, Marcel Wanders for Mooi, and Vitra have all had their hands on this place, creating a modern world unlike you've ever seen before. Touted as the “central gem of the city,” Barcelo Raval has only become what it is today by a $44.7 million (or $35 million euro) facelift realized by the architect Jose Maria Guillen White. The elliptical shape of the building makes this hotel unique. The theme is carried throughout the interior decorations with elliptical shaped decorations hanging overhead. Personally, I could have done without these weird structures, but heck, it gives the place some character. (Doesn't it remind you of those pool noodles?)

Neat bonuses? Free wireless throughout (thank God!), room numbers lit on the hallway floor (kinda cool), and an awesome roof top terrace with spectacular views of the city (wonderful!). Barcelo Raval Hotel website Photos by Jordi Miralles {Via: Daily Icon}
