Expert review of Hotel Pulitzer

Spectacular design and a kicking rooftop bar.

The Pulitzer is one of very few hotels that pull in as many non-guests as guests, for its gorgeous rooftop bar, its cool lobby bar and its parties. During the Sónar music festival this becomes the hub of hipster networking and, tellingly, it is from here that the festival organisers run shuttle buses to the event itself.

Location: 

Just off the Plaça Catalunya, the Pulitzer could not be more central. La Rambla and the Old City are just a minute's walk away.

Bedrooms: 

Given the siren’s call of the public spaces, the small size of the hotel’s guestrooms doesn’t matter too much, and there’s no faulting them on style, with teak floors and crisp white and grey linen and dark marble bathrooms. For around 30 euros more, the five Superior rooms are bigger, and have a leather sofa and bold contemporary artworks.

Public areas: 

The Pulitzer’s spectacular, light-filled lobby is loosely divided into bar, foyer, meeting and library spaces; spaces you won’t want to leave once you’ve sunk into their oh-so-chic white leather sofas and armchairs. The rooftop terrace bar can also put paid to your plans of a night on the town, with its loungey Ibizan feel and seductive chill-out soundtrack.

Leisure facilities: 

There is no pool or gym, but guests have free use of a nearby Holmes Place fitness centre.

Who stays there: 

As ever, it's a mix of nationalities and ages, but the hotel sets out to appeal to a younger, Ibiza-when-it-was-cool crowd, with a certain amount of success.

Price advice: 

Breakfast costs 15 euros. If you book 21 days or more in advance, you get a 15 per cent discount.

Pros: 
Hip lobby and rooftop bar
Central
Cons: 
No pool
Standard rooms are small
