How we got here
My name is Quique, I was born in Galicia and within a few years we moved to Barcelona, I grew up running down the corridors from hotel to hotel, business to which my parents dedicated all their lives. When I was 19, I tried my luck in Switzerland where my business always had to do with dealing with people, my cream virtue. After 15 years I returned to Barcelona with a lot of experience and desire to have my own business. I was clear that the hotel business was what I carried in my blood and I had learned from a young age and perfected in my youth.
This is how Hostal Portugal was born, a small hostel in the center of Barcelona, which was not at all the tourist city today.
In 2016 in a modern and internationally bright Barcelona, I met Eva, my current wife, architect, lover of recycled furniture and respect for the environment. She gave me her values and encouraged me to give soul to the hostel by making a makeover, which would make it different from the others.
We decided that we wanted to have an establishment that contributes to reducing the amount of waste, opposing the indiscriminate purchase of use and throwing, and using vegetation that contributes to a healthier life and helps reduce CO2.
Thus, with an eclectic image, special for recycling lovers, we turn it into a small green island, an interior garden in the middle of this cosmopolitan city in constant motion.
