“Like Victor, Barcelona is a city of contrasts. The sea and the mountains, the Catalan and Spanish language, Gaudí’s architecture and the avant-garde contemporary. “
In fact, Victor has links with Caterina Albert i Paradís, a Catalan writer who took the male pseudonym Victor Català in order to publish her work. Her dark literature deemed inappropriate by a woman in a more conservative time. Here at Sir Victor – the new Barcelona outpost of Sir Hotels, a young chain of stores with establishments in Berlin, Hamburg, Amsterdam and Ibiza – the name defies perceptions and is the perfect counter-project for a progressive brand with the nickname male.
Challenging perceptions and informed by a city of contrasts
For those who know Barcelona, the hotel is located next to Passeig de Gràcia and features Gaudí masterpieces, Casa Milà and high-end boutiques such as Chanel, Prada and Fendi as neighbors. Its facade consists of a skeleton composed of several curved structural modules in stainless steel, serving as “cut” skin. The hotel is housed in a historic building designed by the Catalan architectural firm Capella Garcia…
The hotel has 91 rooms and suites, including a multitude of living areas as well as a rooftop bar and lounge, decorated with colorful textiles and lush vegetation. The small pool provides respite from the summer sun and breathtaking views of one of the city’s most impressive architectures.
A lifestyle hotel inspired by the uplifting spirit of the city and its natural landscape with an commanding views out to the famous Passeig de Gràcia; reflection of afternoon light into the rooms; and reduced noise from the street below. The lobby allows guests to shoot some pool, read a book or drink a cocktail in a handsome art-filled space designed by architecture studio Baranowitz + Kronenberg, featuring an eye-catching copper mesh ceiling, dark walnut furniture, Bocci light pieces and finishes in brass, steel, rose gold and Carrara marble.

There’s even an impressive 60-foot dayboat with captain and crew member that can whisk up to ten out onto the Med at up to 40 knots for an unforgettable sun-soaked afternoon.
