Historical Museum-Inspired Inns
The Francesc Rife Studio Caro Hotel Fuses New and Old Together

By: Shiori Mine (Star) Jun 20, 12

The Francesc Rife Studio Caro Hotel is a picturesque lodge in the heart of Valencia, Spain. The blend of old historical details and new modern materials creates a distinctive experience for visiting guests.

While the exterior remains true to its century period design, the interior has been given an intensive contemporary makeover. Although the gothic archways and exposed brick walls have been preserved, the furnishings and fixtures are all top-of-the-line and modern. The blend between new and old is seamless and boasts a warm, inviting ambiance throughout. Guests can enjoy dinner in the downstairs dining space, which resembles a museum exhibit more than a restaurant. Each of the hotel’s twenty-six rooms is distinctive and different; however, the architects have maintained a clean, minimalist aesthetic across the building.

Visitors can soak in the rays on the Francesc Rife Studio Caro Hotel patio, nestled secretly on the building’s rooftop.
