Expert review of Granados 83

A Manhattan vibe and ancient artworks.

The Derby Hotels group is owned by Catalan Egyptologist Jordi Clos, and the rooms and public areas in each of its hotels are dotted with ancient objets d’art. The Granados is one of the most affordable of the chain, but is still classy and comfortable.

Location: 

C/Enric Granados is one of the Eixample's quieter streets, being partially pedestrianised. It's not brilliantly central, but there are lots of good restaurants hereabouts - ask the front desk for recommendations.

Bedrooms: 

Decor in the rooms, as throughout the rest of the hotel, embraces a masculine, Manhattan look – zebrawood floors and doors, bare brickwork and leather sofas and headboards. Avoid, if you can, the rooms on the ground floor, which open on to the lobby and can feel a bit claustrophobic.

Public areas: 

As above, the lobby/seating area is done out with lots of black leather, chrome and underlit glass panels. There's a computer that guests can use.

Eating and drinking: 

As well as the terrace bar (where you can order lighter dishes), the hotel has a cocktail bar (the white leather banquettes in here are quite easy on the eye after so much stridency) and a creative Mediterranean restaurant.

Leisure facilities: 

The furniture on the terrace next to the plunge pool is, naturally, Wall Street grey, and don't go expecting wisteria or terracotta urns. This is statement design. There is also a very small fitness room.

Who stays there: 

It gets a fair few businessmen, and also lovers of bold design.

Price advice: 

Try and get a deal involving breakfast - otherwise I'm not convinced it really merits the 19 euros. WiFi is free.

Pros: 
Unique, contemporary decor
Cons: 
Some rooms pokey
