Kimpton Vividora Hotel opens in Barcelona

Spain: Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, IHG’s boutique luxury brand, has made its debut in Spain with the opening of the Kimpton Vividora Hotel.

The hotel is located in the heart of the Ciutat Vella district (the old city) in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter and cultural and historical epicentre.

Featuring 156 guest rooms, ten suites, three restaurants and bars, and a rooftop terrace and pool overlooking the city, the Kimpton Vividora Hotel is in close proximity to iconic landmarks such as Las Ramblas, La Barceloneta Beach, La Boqueria and Plaça Catalunya.

Among the hotel’s signature perks are a nightly hosted Social Hour for guests, its pet-friendly service offerings, and design-forward tokyobikes and Kimpton Vividora Hotel branded skateboards.

For the project, Kimpton’s creative director and SVP of design, Ave Bradley, collaborated with local interior design studio El Equipo Creativo to create an authentic, contemporary vision of Barcelona throughout the hotel. Its design mixes terracotta colours, representing the urban landscape of Barcelona, with blues to reflect the Mediterranean.

Each guestroom borrows inspiration from a stylish Barcelona apartment. The Mediterranean colour palette, natural wood, sleek marble, subtle graphic motifs and bold tiles give a nod to the city’s coastal setting. Each room features locally designed furniture and artwork, Vifa Bluetooth speakers and exclusive luxury bath amenities.

Mike Robinson, general manager of Kimpton Vividora Hotel, told the IHG website: “We’re so excited for guests to discover a new hotel experience, one that perfectly blends contemporary luxury and beautifully designed spaces, with unique, fun experiences and incredible food and drinks. Kimpton Vividora Hotel brings something unique to an incredible city, and we can’t wait for guests and locals to be part of it.”

Tom Rowntree, VP of luxury brands at IHG, said: “Kimpton continues on its incredible growth trajectory across the globe, and the brand’s debut in Spain is a fantastic example of our unique approach to heartfelt luxury. Every detail is thoughtfully curated and artfully delivered, so that the guest experience remains meaningful, unscripted and ridiculously personal.”

There are currently 66 Kimpton hotels open worldwide, with another 33 set to open within the next three-five years in the company’s growth strategy. This year, the brand will debut in Paris, Bali, Bangkok, Tokyo, Manchester [UK] and Mexico City, as well as expanding its inventory across the United States.
