Easter Sunday morning in Barcelona and we venture out to find a traditional little café.
We find Tiffany’s, luckily for Mr S it’s closed, so I take some photos of the window displays (I take A LOT of photos these days). I’m hungry, Mr S is hungry, and quaint little restaurants are thin on the ground in the very posh area we’re standing in, so we go next door to the Mandarin Oriental.
We nearly stayed at the Mandarin, but decided against it in favour of the more intimate Hotel Pulitzer (I’ll cover that in another post), so we were both quite keen to have a nosy inside. It’s a very classy place; I’ll let the photos do the talking…
The geometric ceiling hanging separates the restaurant from the floor above but retains a bright and airy feel.
I totally fell in love with these linen wall panels and the humongous rug.
The breakfast is amazing, but this is a design blog so I won’t go into too much detail, instead, take a look at these gorgeous hand made Easter Eggs.
Finally, some photos of the loos, look at those gold Axor Citterio taps, ooo and the mosaic mirrored tiles… Am I alone in my love for posh bathrooms?
and the gents (taken by Mr S)
The Mandarin Oriental Barcelona is a feast for the eyes and the stomach with it’s excellent breakfast. Check out their (ugly) website for photos of the rooms and the rest of the hotel.
