TRIPADVISOR versus BOOKING – TOP10 FIVE STARS HOTELS IN BARCELONA

HOTEL MERCER BARCELONA

Welcome to the most exquisite selection of five stars hotels in Barcelona. We wanted to show you the reality of who is who in Gaudi´s city when we talk about luxury in hospitality.

The idea was to confront two well known platforms taking the information from the ranking of Booking.com and  Tripadvisor.

We wanted to know if in reality Tripadvisor, with an increasing amount of people spontaneously posting comments,  could work as a bar measurement to trust their evaluation.

Why?

Because there is a select group of people who in fact can use all the facilities of a 5 stars hotel and the most reliable easy tool is booking.com since the guests has to stay overnight to leave a comment about the hotel in question.

Surprisingly, the results from Tripadvisor was not that different from Booking.com

We would like to invite you to discover our TOP10 5* hotels from Tripadvisor & Booking.com

Congratulations to Mercer Hotel Barcelona, we cannot agree more on this 1º place, well deserved. The uniqueness, detail oriented, and historic ambiance,  playing with the finest materials that earth can give us. This is one of the best examples of what luxury means in the hospitality business and of course, it does not refer just to money so still this luxury hotel is not for everyone.

Notes:

When we translate the values of Tripadvisor into a scale from 1 to 10,  Mercer Hotel got a 9,98 and this is why we gave them a 10, to make a difference between Alma Hotel & Mercer Hotel.

You cannot book Mandarin Oriental Barcelona via booking.com therefore we could not get any info

Exclusive and Unique Jewelry. Privately in Barcelona!

It looks like my clock has stopped when I enter in their private and secret atelier located at the top floor  in one of the most exclusive avenues in Gaudi´s city. A romantic corner composed by a lamp and a seat looking at the magnificent Barcelona´s skyline was waiting for me.

Everything started with an invitation just a few months ago. It was a casual visit that gave me the opportunity to re-inforce my believe in Barcelona. Our cosmopolitan city has style, uniqueness & exclusivity thanks to innovative and glamorous creations like Croxé.

Croxé is a private atelier located in Passeig de Gracia and only selected people have had the pleasure to be invited to this exclusive space. It is an experience to your senses that you can enjoy privately or with a group of selected friends.

The owners Daniela & Augusto have created a concept in this amazing  loft with over 300 hand-made limited edition pieces. Their inspiration is based on their hundred trips around the world. Recently they came back from a special trip to Israel and at this time they are in Dubai. I am excited to see the marvelous and fascinating result of that will be their new creations.

It is an inspiration to every one who visit this spectacular space. I have had the opportunity to brings some friends who are looking for that particular & unique gift, that specific piece to keep Barcelona in memory so I never go wrong extending an invitation to visit them.

Unique in design, exclusive in their service, unreapetable in their ideas, magnific in their presentations, friendly, humble and always willing to learn more about the world around them. Croxé is premium all the way and it is an honor to talk about professionals that always go up in their projects, surprising us step by step.

My invitation is here so let me know when you want to go. I will be glad to take you to heaven in this paradise called Barcelona!

Enjoy… Always in a Premium way!

P.A.Deluxe mission is to show you the most outstanding Real Estate companies with base in Barcelona so you will be able to find the most personalized service, professional assistance, premium quality all the time and most important… Exclusiveness.

If you are coming for professional reasons, if  you have to relocate one of your executives from your company to Barcelona or you are looking for that particular property I can advise you an elite service with the following companies.

JOHN TAYLOR 

It is probably one of the most traditional agencies in Europe, creating its first office in 1864 offering exclusive properties around the French Riviera. Today, with offices in Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Monaco and France specifically in the most exclusive destinations in each country. With over 15 years in Spain they offer properties in Barcelona, Costa Brava and Ibiza. They are specialized in dealing with local and foreign clients. They also offer premium properties for short and long term rent. @JohnTaylorSpain

Multilingual service and premium professionals ready to accomplish any request or comment you may have. Also, They are very well recognised regarding their Luxury Short & Long Term properties around Barcelona, Costa Brava and Ibiza to name some of the most attractive locations at the Mediterranean  sea.

.

BCN ADVISORS

With an international and local staff, they are committed to provide uniqueness, exclusiveness and the most premium selections of properties around Barcelona. One of their strong points is providing a taylor-made service to their costumers.  Same as the other companies mentioned here they provide relocation services to the high end executives coming to this mediterranean city.  @bcnadvisors

.

What I can say about this premium company that we don´t know? Over 30 years related with the premium Real Estate, they are a group of franchise or licensing partners offices  of this privately owned German company. Located in almost 40 countries around the globe.  Here we can talk about an International guaranteed Real Estate Group. It is so easy to recognise them with those classical decorated   shops in an uniform corporate design that once you have seen them you know exactly what you will get… Quality and Premium Service! @EV_BCN

.

 Under the umbrella of a very distinguished group Luxury Dream Group  we know we are talking about high end services. They can provide anything regarding luxury within Barcelona and Spain.  You can find diverse locations outside Barcelona such as Costa Brava, Costa del Garraf or the city itself. Because they are so well networked in the luxury business in this area they might have that particular product you are looking for and you did not find yet. High end exclusivity!  @Luxurypropertis

.

.
Those companies are in charge of looking for that perfect property and when we are talking about premium quality they get close to one of the definitions that I like the most   “LUXURY IS SOMETHING UNIQUE, EXCLUSIVE, SOMETHING NOBODY ELSE HAS”
.
I wish you a great time selecting your new home and…

… Welcome to Barcelona!
