Located just off the Plaça Catalunya, within easy reach of the city's Gothic and El Born quarters, this 92-room hotel is ridiculously central. Expertly restored from a building dating back to the 1920s, it's near many top sites, shopping, nightlife and transport links. It has cool public areas - a spacious, bright lobby adorned with artworks, a sassy cocktail bar and lively rooftop bar - popular with locals and visitors alike. Guest rooms are suitably lavish, and the Mediterranean restaurant with some local dishes, seasonal menu changes and outdoor dining, is a bonus. There's inexpensive access to a nearby health club the hotel has partnered with, with a heated swimming pool, sauna, and fitness centre.



The hotel is practically next door to key square Plaça de Catalunya, and therefore very central, with the best choice of metro stations, bus stops and taxis, and lots of shops, bars and restaurants.

Located in the heart of the city in the lively Exiample district, close to La Boqueria market and popular shopping street Passeig de Gracia
By plane: Fly to El-Prat from London (2 hours 5 mins), Manchester (2 hours 20 mins) and Edinburgh (2 hours 40 mins). The hotel is a 25-minute drive from the airport. Public parking is available nearby.

Discerning leisure and business travellers of all ages are attracted to this hotel, especially those in their 30s-50s. The artworks liven up both public areas and guest rooms.

Room 502 is big, with a large, comfortable bed livened up by a big, fabric striped headboard; there's an easy chair but the room could do with a little side table or desk. Its white walls are graced with four contemporary artworks and the bathroom has lovely deep vivid blue wall tiles. The tiny, sweet balcony overlooking Carrer de Bergara was just big enough for one little chair; perfect for watching the world go by while topping up your tan.

Food & Drink

The unpretentious local wine from Sant Josep, both sauvignon and merlot, is lovely. The beef stew with aubergine and chickpeas at Greenhouse Restaurant, a traditional, local dish, is tasty, although unusual in that chunks of meat fat are part of the dish.
