Can You tell us something about the start of your accommodation ?
Casa Vaganto opened in September 2018. The inspiration for Casa Vaganto was simple. To create the environment for our guests as if they were in our own home. We transformed a typical Barcelona “piso” (apartment) into our reception and lounge area which is also where all of our guests can enjoy daily breakfast as well as complimentary coffee, tea and local wines throughout the day. Our background has always been hospitality but we wanted Casa Vaganto to be something special and different from any traditional hotel you can find.

What is unique about your hotel’s location? Why would people choose to stay in your neighborhood? What authentic local experiences will guests have access to?
Poble Sec is a wonderful “barrio” (neighbourhood) of Barcelona. In Poble Sec, you have the feel that you are located more in a residential neighbourhood, however within a short metro ride or walking distance to all of the attractions of Barcelona. You can still find many traditional restaurants and bars and are walking distance to the beautiful Montjuic.

Is there any typical meal guests should try when visiting your region ?
In fact there are many! Of course when thinking of Spanish food, most people think of Tapas and Paella which are fantastic and can be found all around Barcelona, but in fact are not traditional Catalan dishes. Pan con tomate (bread with tomate) is a favorite among all guests travelling to Catalonia and you can even taste this local delight during breakfast at Casa Vaganto. Another local favorite is Butifarra or Catalan Sausage. In winter, guests visiting Catalonia can try Calçots, and a Calçotada is a must do if you are visiting during this time. If our guests are interested to try some typical Catalan Dishes, we send them to one of the nearby restaurants, Taverna Can Margarit or La Bodegueta de Poble Sec which can both be reached within a 5 minutes walk from Casa Vaganto.
What is your favourite part of your job / activity?
