first there were the comfortable shoes for cool urbanites:
then the super creative stores:
and finally there were the 2 awesome hotels in europe’s coolest cities!
casa camper barcelona is placed in the middle of the picturesque raval. you can take advantage of the presence of chef albert raurich, formerly at the el bulli and currently at the dos palillos, the in-house restaurant that serves asian dishes in tapas style.
the hotel also provides, beside the full breakfast buffet, tentempie, an exclusive 24/7, complementary-for-hotel-guests service that replaces the minibar and supplies as many snacks as you want during your stay. click here for the complete list of services and here for the gym!
the newer casa camper berlin is situated in the heart of mitte and it offers a similar range of services: a dos palillos restaurant, tentempie, very cool minimalist rooms and a fitness center. ronan and erwan bouroullec helped with the design of the restaurant (i spied their algue in the tentempie pictures!) where one long table is placed along the open kitchen, allowing guests to witness the magic.
due to scheduling issues, i missed eating there so i cannot give any personal insight other than: i’d love to try them one day! and, as berlin seems to be in the cards, that may happen sooner than i expect 🙂
