Staycation Series: The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences


Rainy season has arrived and sadly, it's time to slowly bid goodbye to summer- just summer. Why? Because well, isn't it the perfect season for staycations? To take well-deserved breaks in between stressful work weeks? Or to simply celebrate the weekend with friends or family? I believe that we all need a to sojourn within the city once in a while so I made a series of blog posts featuring the best and unique hotels that I highly recommend based on my experience, First, The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences.


The first time I heard about this place, I already figured that it's related to art. And the moment I arrived, I immediately fell in love with our suite- Barcelona and Montapamasse. It's named after, of course, the great Pablo Picasso's hometown and Montapamasse is a district in Paris that's also related to Picasso. 
Our suites feature high-speed Wi-Fi connection, centralized airconditioning, iPod docking station, telephone, LCD TV with cable channels, kitchenette with refrigerator, electric stove, microwave and electric kettle, DVD player, rice cooked, fine china pieces, silverware, glassware, and iron. What else do we need that's note in here? This could pass as my house, to be honest.


One thing that makes this hotel live up to its name is that there's s an art gallery located on the second floor. It is operated by Altro Mondo Arte Contemporanea, their in house curator who cultivates concepts with different media and committed visual artist exhibits that vary every 2-3 months. 


Also, it's Instagram worthy everywhere.


They have a wi-fi lounge where guests can use the computers with fast connection.


Pablo Bistro-Bar is their in-house restaurant that serves European Bistro Cuisine. The interiors reflect the traces of the old world grandeur or Europe with a touch of contemporary feels.


My favorite part is their breakfast buffet that serves cold cuts, cheese, yogurts to pair with your choice of dish. 


The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences has 136 spacious rooms that meets both vintage and novelty where every experience transports us to a world where art and passion lives.
