Co-Founders of Nobu Hospitality View Mock Up Room Design Of Nobu Hotel Barcelona

Co-founders of Nobu Hospitality, Robert De Niro, Nobu Matsuhisa and Meir Teper join Jordi Mestre of Selenta Group to view mock up room designs of Nobu Hotel Barcelona, ahead of its anticipated opening in March 2019.


Used as the main inspiration behind the design of the hotel is the Japanese art form of Kintsugi. Comparable to Gaudi’s work throughout Barcelona, the interior sees traditional Japanese broken pottery applied to the walls and ceiling.  Designed by acclaimed architects Rockwell Group, Nobu Hotel Barcelona seamlessly blends the Nobu signature standard with the dynamic character of this vibrant city.


Located within close proximity to the business center, Nobu Hotel Barcelona will capture the unique essence of the famous European city whilst reflecting the brand’s core aspirational lifestyle offering. The fourth European hotel and third Spanish property in the brand’s portfolio, the hotel will offer 244 rooms, including 43 suites, meeting rooms, event spaces and a Nobu restaurant on the 23rd floor, with panoramic views of the city.


Identified by its laid-back luxury, innovation and unprecedented food and beverage offerings, Nobu Hotel Barcelona strengthens the expansion of Nobu Hospitality and Selenta Group whilst reinforcing the international image of this Catalan capital.

Established in Barcelona in 1976, Selenta Group has over four decades of experience in luxury hospitality. With accommodation offerings in destinations across Spain, the group is continuing to showcase its expertise in leisure management. Nobu Hotel Barcelona will continue to be part of the Selenta Group Collection,  under a long-term management contract with Nobu Hotels.
