A very discreet buzzer is the only sign of Margot House at street level (the entrance is right next to Swarovski). And with just nine rooms, it also feels more like a friend’s private townhouse than an actual hotel (alright, a very wealthy friend – with impeccable taste and around-the-clock staff). You don’t get much more boutique than this.
A converted first floor apartment, the property retains a homely feel, with the kitchen and the massive dining-living room serving as communal spaces in which to kick back or socialise. As if at home, guests are invited to help themselves to drinks and snacks, an invitation that extends to pouring themselves a G&T or glass of wine.
Rooms are bright, studies of subtle minimalism but plenty comfortable with all the facilities you’d expect at this level. Egyptian cotton sheets, double showers (in some rooms) and Alqvimia amenities to keep you well. Smart TVs, Blu-ray players and B&W speakers along with decent speed Wi-Fi to keep you entertained.
Rates are competitive for the four exterior rooms – all large and with nice views of Passeig de Gràcia and Gaudí‘s Casa Batlló – but you might feel cheated in a small, windowless interior. If the room of your choice is available, then Margot’s is a great option for somebody who prefers a small property.
