The Cotton House Hotel is housed in a listed landmark built in 1879 by Catalan architect Elies Rogent, at the height of the textile industry in Barcelona. The building later became the headquarters of the Catalan Association of Cotton Manufacturers (Fundación Textil Algodonera).
The renovation was done by the interior design studio of Lázaro Rosa-Violán, who also designed Hotel Praktik Bakery and Hotel Praktik Vinoteca.
Original elements such as the striking marble staircase and ceiling frescoes have been carefully conserved.
Batuar Restaurant & Cocktail Bar
Batuar, the Cotton House cocktail bar and restaurant, offers the full menu from 7 a.m. until midnight. The name Batuar originates from the machine that pressed cotton to eliminate its impurities.
The library was formerly used by the members of the Cotton Producers Guild for meetings and as a social club.
The spacious 300- m2 terrace is accessible from Batuar.
The roof of the hotel features a pool and splendid views of the city. In the background you can see Antoni Gaudí’s La Sagrada Família, due for completion in 2026.
