Generator, Europe’s fastest growing hostel brand, is excited to announce the launch of its newest design-inspired boutique property in one of Europe’s most architecturally astounding cities; Barcelona. With boutique hostels already in Berlin East, Copenhagen, Dublin, Hamburg, London and Venice and more on the way this summer in Berlin Mitte, Generator is offering a new level of style and comfort for those who want big city centre adventure without breaking the bank. For the ultimate way to take in the city, rooms on the upper floors include private terraces offering astounding views of the city skyline (including the Sagrada Familia) and across to the Mediterranean. Generator is bringing contemporary yet affordable design for those keen to explore this city so synonymous with Gaudi.
Generator Barcelona – Opening March 2013
Built in 1963, this renovated building is both a hostel and hotel and is conveniently located just a five minute walk from two main metro stations, Diagonal and Verdaguer in the heart of the trendy Gràcia neighbourhood. Under the guidance of Generator’s chief designer Anwar Mekhayech (from Toronto-based The Design Agency, and part of the design team working with Soho House and Shangri-La) the first Generator property in Spain has been carefully styled to reflect the surrounding city and to inspire visitors exploring the crown of Catalonia.
