A state-of-the-art glass pavilion clad in teak lattices houses one of the city’s most stylish boutique hotels, and the fantastic, Michelin-starred restaurant.
The chic and intimate ABaC sits on the Tibidabo hill at the north end of the city, in Barcelona’s Zona Alta neighborhood, located within a building that once housed the United States consulate.
Fiteen luxurious rooms
Even before stepping in, the innovative architecture of the building stands out with its edgy urban feel. Designed with classic lines and neutral tones, the innovative architecture comes across as contemporary but warm. Interior design is based on off-white and cream shades, with unique furniture pieces and adjustable lighting schemes, customizable to suit the mood in the rooms.
The soundproof guestrooms with floor-to-ceiling windows follow the concept based on neutral and comfortable design found all around the hotel. Well-planned bathrooms feature Corian walls, limestone counters, rain-effect showers and whirlpool bathtubs, and come with the “for him” and “for her” Hermès toiletries. The windows overlook a pretty garden and/or a terrace.
The ABaC’s luxury Roman-inspired spa is situated on the lower ground floor, complete with a thermal pool and a separate cold-water pool. Series of skylights provide natural lighting and fragrances and relaxing music complete the experience.
The sophisticated ABaC Lounge on the ground floor, divided into two clearly distinguished spaces is the perfect place to chill-out.
The pièce de résistance is definitely the hotel’s two-Michelin-star restaurant, where exciting and inventive dishes by chef Jordi Cruz are served on Versace china. It’s course after course of exquisite flavor and innovative combinations!
Located in a newly built pavilion the ABaC Restaurant shares the same meticulous design approach seen throughout the hotel, with décor based on white, and with superb designer lighting. Interior and exterior are in touch thanks to large window looking out into the garden, where al fresco dining is possible, weather permitting.
ABaC Restaurant & Hotel is a member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World group.
