Premium Suite Hotels Group


The Premium Suite Hotels Group is a hotel chain with a long experience in hotel management, innovation, sustainability and customer service.

The history of the Premium Suite Hotels Group began 34 years ago, in 1988, when a family from Barcelona in the business of wooden building construction decided to innovate by creating an aparthotel in a building located very close to Plaça Bonanova, in Bisbe Sivilla street. They decided to design the hotel rooms including a kitchen, a studio type apartment, so that guests could enjoy all the services of a hotel, with the independence of being able to cook and feel at home. An establishment with a customer-oriented philosophy. Today, Barcelona is a city with a wide range of accommodation options but, at that time, it was quite unheard of. The Bonanova Aparthotel, now called Bonanova Suite, has become one of the “classic” establishments in the city.

In 1996 it was decided to make the step from managing a single hotel to managing two, by building the Acacia Suite, the group’s second establishment. Acacia Suite is a 4-star hotel located next to Barcelona’s Hospital Clínic, in the Eixample district, and it has the same customer-oriented philosophy as its predecessor.

A few years later, in 2011, the group took a third step with the opening of Ako Suite, a 4-star boutique hotel located a few minutes from Rambla Catalunya, which stands out with its pleasant swimming pool and outdoor solarium located at the top of the building.

When AKO SUITE opened, it was thought that the time had come to create a hotel chain with the aim of joining forces, strategies and making the three establishments known together, both commercially and online. Thus Premium Suite Hotels was born.

Finally, in 2013, Premium Suite Hotels sought a new innovative formula and built what is the fourth establishment in Santa Coloma de Gramenet, a location with hardly any hotels, but with great potential. Abarco Apartments are strategically located, just 25 minutes by metro from Plaça Catalunya and within easy reach of the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya where the F1 and Motorcycle Grand Prix take place. It is also an ideal location for company workers from all the industrial estates and companies located in the north of Barcelona, as well as Vallès Occidental and Vallès Oriental counties. It is also the ideal place to visit Barcelona for tourists on a tight budget.

As a curiosity, it is worth mentioning that AKO, ACACIA and ABARCO are all tree names, since sustainability is a priority, and and wood is present in all our properties. Only the first establishment (BONANOVA) is named after the area where it is located.
