Different Doors August, 18 2013: Retrome Barcelona – Vintage yet fresh

Different -doors

We felt like very stylish and hip locals. Just the right amount of vintage and retro without the theme coming out of our ears. Sure it had some really quirky pieces of furniture. But essentially, it kind of felt like a liveable art gallery. Just the kind of ambiance we love. But all of that just paled in comparison when we looked up at the ceiling, or down at the floor, or straight ahead at the walls. We were, in fact staying in a restored Art Nouveau space on the Principale floor of this building.  Read more...

I admit that, when I travel or when on holiday, I'm being quite picky in choosing accommodation. Although I can sleep almost anywhere (even in the airport of Alaska or on a night train in Vietnam), picking the right spot can make all the difference. The point is to feel at home. This is why I decided to spend my short Rome vacation in the vintage boutique hotel Retrome. The concept of this Roman retro hotel, as well as another hotel in Barcelona, is the creation of two entrepreneurs Moti Erdeapel and Oren Zohar. See more...

We loved our stay so much at the Retrome in Rome that we were pretty excited to try out the Retrome Barcelona property. I loved that not only was it a bed and breakfast but that it also felt like you were renting an apartment in a nice part of Barcelona. The common area was stocked full of books about Barcelona and the different styles of architecture and we really appreciated that.It was also very close by to a number of attractions and shopping areas. Read more...

Dotting -the -map ---Retrome -Rome -small

I was intrigued by the idea of Retrome. I am a big fan of unusual accomodations and even more-so if they have a vintage flair. It’s not that the Retrome hotel in Rome is all that unusual, it’s just smaller and more intimate. [...] Let’s start off by talking about the location. Location in any city is very important, but in Rome it’s everything. You want to be in a central location, close to the train, but also walkable distance to a lot of the major attractions. Read more...
