Luxury boutique apartments in the heart of Barcelona, located in Rambla de Catalunya.

The Murmuri hotel has a baroque, intimate, and modern style, the establishment is situated on La Rambla Catalunya, at the heart of the city. Surrounded by the most beautiful pieces of modern art, shops, restaurants, and well connected by public transports. You will have the opportunity to savor the constant murmur of Barcelona from the Murmuri hotel. Everything with a unique style, designed by the English interior specialist Kelly Hoppen; feminine but with style and reminiscences of classicism without forgetting the most sophisticated design.

A project in which the Majestic Hotel Group will demonstrate its constant devotion to excellence. 53 welcoming rooms and suites, perfectly equipped with the most modern features. The hotel also proposes the restaurant elPassatge del Murmuri whose gastronomy with creative personality will surprise you positively; the Bar Marfil by Murmuri, a discrete charming refuge to experience the most daring cocktails; and the terrace, shared by both, situated on La Rambla Catalunya ideal to enjoy the life of the city either day or night.

The 53 rooms and 2 suites are evenly spread over 5 floors. The corridors are warmly illuminated in a gently and timely manner. The rooms almost look like an apartment!
This is a great alternative for guests in search of maximum tranquility in a hotel in Barcelona.

Here is my recommendation: for a healthy and tasty lunch or dinner, try out our Menú del día (menu of the day) for €16.55 at noon and €20 in the evening, with starters, main courses and desserts to be chosen. The patatas bravas del chef and his various “croquetas” are essential to open your appetite, and then you should choose the Barcelonese “honey rice” with tuna steak or our poultry’s specialty. Last but not least, if you are still hungry, don’t miss the cheesecake, tart tartin, or chocolate fondant.

“This modern, stylishly designed hotel will surprise you and will be a memorable stay prior to or after your cruise!”
