Enjoy the charm of a unique site located in Barcelona's bohemian district. Take in the calm atmosphere. Treat yourself to high-quality service. Welcome to Ricardo Page’s hotel.
"Customised service, an attention to detail, discretion, and efficiency... we do everything we can to make sure your stay is more than just a simple night at a hotel. "
Thanks to what he calls a "very fortunate" twist of fate, Ricardo found himself the head of The Originals Boutique, Le Palacete, which opened in 2016. After thirty years of luxury hotel experience, Ricardo wanted to get back to the roots of his trade: "human contact with guests from the world over, the option to speak in a different language every day, and an attention to detail while providing subtle, down-to-earth service". Located a few minutes' walk from the bustling heart of Barcelona along a small street in the Gràcia district, this former 20th-century residence, which was once converted into a cosmetics factory, offers a charming oasis of calm behind its two-tone facade featuring blond stone and yellow decorations set off by floral and plant motifs. In this small, 10-room hotel, beautiful materials are paired with top-notch finishes, comfort is balanced with design, and service is discreet and efficient.
The Originals Boutique, Le Palacete has ten rooms. While it may not have many rooms, each one is of excellent quality. Guests will be impressed by their size and services. The rooms come with bedding that is handmade in Sweden using natural materials, original chevron parquet flooring that complements the designer furniture, and a private or shared deck overlooking the city's rooftops. Any travellers too tired to climb the stairs, which are decorated with a Catalan fresco, or traverse the ramp, which is decorated with a winged dragon, are free to take the elevator.

In winter, a full, made-to-order breakfast can be enjoyed from a dining room that looks out over the patio. In warmer weather, it is served beneath the wild pepper plants, jasmine, and magnolias that line the inner courtyard. If you prefer to stay at the hotel to eat, Ricardo and his team offer communal meals. However, the neighbourhood's streets and restaurants have a lot to offer, including tapas, Italian cuisine, Argentine meats, and more. Stop by the reception desk for recommendations for whatever suits your fancy.
Ricardo offers a unique perspective on his city. He'll even suggest an unusual way to explore—on the back of a Royal Enfield motorcycle. Get set for an unforgettable, rip-roaring experience!
