Opening on Monday 27 June is Parador 44, a new boutique hotel inspired by Spain in the heart of Cardiff – and the first of its kind in the UK. As its name implies, Parador 44 will offer an authentic taste of Iberia for the discerning visitor and is set to be the first food-focused luxury hotel in the Welsh capital.
With nine en suite rooms, each individually designed, Parador 44 is tucked away from the urban hubbub and offers an Andalucian outdoor terraza, a residents’ lounge with an honesty bar offering an array of Spanish drinks and snacks, and gorgeous light-flooded suites.
The hotel features authentic Spanish touches throughout, with a light and natural Andalucian feel. The historic wooden floorboards throughout the building have been reclaimed and rehoused within the beams, sills, headboards and shelving features.
Spanish doors and shutters have been self-sourced and reused as headboards, against a neutral palette fusing traditional Spain with timeless modern touches. The aim is for indulgent comfort but in a simple, paired back, inviting style.
