We introduce you Gábor

You already know that we like to introduce you our team of the Barcelona Princess and the Negresco Priness Hotels It’s a good way to know each other a little better and so they can give us suggestions and explain some anecdotes.

On this occasion we spoke with Gábor Noé the person in charge of urban hotels in Barcelona of the Princess Hotels & Resorts chain.

– Where are you from?

I am Hungarian and I lived there until I was 27 years old. Later I came to Spain where I have been for 10 years. First in Tenerife and now a year ago in Barcelona, an exceptional and restless city with sea, mountains, culture and nightlife.

– What is your job at the hotel?

 I am joining the Princess Hotels & Resorts chain in their hotels in Barcelona as Sales Manager and my objective is to do business actions to attract businesses to hotels, and I do it mostly traveling.

– What do you like the most about your job?

I like the idea of collaborating with two very different hotels in Barcelona at the same time.

They are the Hotel Barcelona Princess, a congress hotel with large meeting rooms and in front of the CCIB (International Convention Centre in Barcelona) and just a few minutes from the beach. The other one is the Negresco Princess, a hotel in the center of Barcelona with a large terrace and a restaurant, Negresco Restaurant, with a very interesting gastronomic proposal.

And of course traveling is also something that I love!

-Do you want to tell us any anecdote about your experiences at the Hotel Barcelona Princess?

Each trip is an experience because each destination is different. I have seen and heard many things! One example is that a partner was sent by mistake to another city because the agency organizing the trip made a mistake the city code.

– From your day by day, how do you contribute to the hotel’s social and environmental responsibility plan?

I will join the new solidarity cause of this year, as well as environmental, sports and solidarity activities organized by both Princess hotels in Barcelona.

– What is your favorite place in the city of Barcelona? And in the hotel?

The viewpoint of Montjuïc from where you can enjoy terrific views of Barcelona.

About the hotels, in Barcelona Princess the terrace of The Gym Bar is a great place to relax with a drink and an excellent place to organize an event. In Negresco Hotel, the terrace and the pool on the top floor of the hotel have a great atmosphere.

-If you came to visit the city, what do you think you could not miss in Barcelona?

I recommend living in neighborhoods of the city such as Gràcia, very close to the Negresco Princess or Poblenou, a few steps away from the Barcelona Princess.

Thank you for sharing your time with us and we hope to know more about your travelling experiences!

Menú San Valentín en Negresco Restaurant

How? Our chef, Jon García, has prepared a menu to delight even the most demanding palates. A gastronomic menu where each step is important, as in love. And where does love start? Almost always with a glance, one of these glances that cross your soul and produce chills like this delicious ceviche of sea bass with avocado that starts the wonderful menu.

And what follows an intense glance? A first date full of symbolism and dreams, a corn cream with timbale of fresh cheese and hazelnuts in two textures. Will everything be fine or will it be the end? We are sure that the best ending is the main course: passion. And the best way to represent the pleasure of these delicious grilled scallops is with semi-sweet celeri puree and emulsions of guava, squid ink and passion fruit.

But this trip through the senses does not end here, now it is time to decide: Meat or fish? Medallions of Iberian sirloin with pumpkin with vanilla syrup and foie poêlé or grilled turbot with creamy mint peas? Difficult decision, that will take us to the sweetness of exquisite desserts designed and made with all the care that we are capable of, like the taste of kisses, these desserts will take us through rose gardens and mountains of chocolate to end with a truffle duo that will join us forever.

On the next 8 of October the Barcelona Triathlon will be held in the city, it is the largest in Spain and one of the greatest in Europe.

The triathlon in Barcelona is an important sporting event that is held every year to promote the practice of sport, and this time has an added value, as 25 years have passed since the amazing Olympic Games in Barcelona 92.

Last Wednesday 20th of September the Barcelona Triathlon 2017 was presented at the Olimpic Sport Museum, which was attended by a great Spanish athlete who participated in those memorable games of 92, Abel Anton. This year, Abel will be the representative of the Banco Santander team along with Mireia Belmonte and Miguel Indurain.

Presentación Barcelona Triathlon

At the Hotel Barcelona Princess, official hotel of the Barcelona Triathlon, this year we’ll repeat our assistance at the Barcelona triathlon with our great #BarcelonaPrincessTeam.

In this year’s triathlon there will be different distances and modalities so that everyone can participate in it.

As a novelty this year, the Barcelona Triathlon 2017 aims to increase female participation so that there are more women on the starting line of the Triathlon and crossing the finish line.
That is why the campaign has begun with the hashtag #mujerestriatletas, in which Ana Pérez (@ annita.smiles) or Sara Loehr (@saraloehr), among others, participate.

In the case of the team of the Barcelona Princess, Marina one of our staff members is a woman triathlete and this year she repeats in the triathlon of Barcelona.

The Barcelona Triathlon is also solidary and this year joins the investigation of Lateral Amyotrophic Sclerosis (ALS) a disease that causes muscle weakness and atrophy.
See you at this important festival where you can have fun doing sport or motivating athletes!

Meet miriam, Head of reception at the Hotel Negresco Princess

She has lived in several countries, but finally Miriam has come back to the great city of Barcelona, we show you a little bit of her interesting life at this hotel at the centre of Barcelona.

 Where are you from, Miriam?
I am from Barcelona but I have also lived in Montreal and Dublin for four years.

They are very different cities to Barcelona, in Montreal there were temperatures of -20 degrees, so there were incredible underground cities. That weather was really cold and there is nothing better than the Mediterranean climate of Barcelona.

What do you do at the hotel?
I am the head of reception, a function that I manage together with Laya and our great team at Hotel Negresco Princes.
