One of the most dynamic and all-embracing cities in the world is Barcelona. It is the largest city in Spain and is incidentally the capital of the autonomous region called Catalonia. In the Mediterranean region, this city is said to be among the most developed ones, though it continues to share intimate relations with its past.
Barcelona makes it to the list of one of the most visited cities in the world for multiple reasons including history, cultural heritage, scenic landscape, cosmopolitan lifestyle and whatnot. However, there is one thing which is not usually talked about as the city’s USP but deserves mention: it is a basket of luxury hotels.
You will have some of the finest luxury hotel experiences over here. Each hotel over here will offer you something different: from the Majestic Hotel & Spa offering minimalist comfort to Oriental Mandarin operating an award-winning restaurant. I have named 10 of them so that you can take a look at them yourself.
- Hotel Arts Barcelona
Address: Carrer de la Marina, 19, 21, 08005 Barcelona, Spain
If you wish to experience minimalist luxury, then you must head to Hotel Arts. Situated along the beach, the hotel will offer you a stunning view of the sea, aside from its extra-comfortable and impressive customer-service. The hotel offers everything a luxury hotel should ordinarily provide, but what it offers which most don’t is a simple yet attractive interior design that does not hurt the eye and sets an example of how less can be good.
- Majestic Hotel & Spa Barcelona GL
Address: Passeig de Gràcia, 68, 08007 Barcelona, Spain
Majestic Hotel & Spa is as majestic as it sounds. Located in the Eixample district, the hotel has been in existence for more than 90 years and is part of the powerful Soldevila family. The overall hotel design is neoclassical, with extensive modern touches to ensure utmost comfort. This place, too, is one of those few hotels which offer minimalist luxury but can be really expensive.
- W Hotel Barcelona
Address: Plaça Rosa Del Vents 1, Final, Passeig de Joan de Borbó, 08039 Barcelona, Spain
W Hotel Barcelona, commonly known as Hotel Vela, is known for many things, but its exterior architectural design, which looks like a humungous sail, stands out among all. It is a lavish, six-star hotel with hundreds of rooms, stylish suites, bars, fitness centers, and whatnot. What makes it all the more amazing is its location which overlooks the sea.
- Mandarin Oriental Barcelona
Address: Passeig de Gràcia, 38, 40, 08007 Barcelona, Spain
There is no gainsaying that some of the best luxury hotels come from the famed Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. Its Barcelona hotel is a remarkable example of one of the finest hotels there is. Opened in 2009, the hotel comprises around 98 guest rooms and suites, decked out in traditional and modern designs. One of its many giveaways is that it houses a restaurant which is run by a Michelin starred Chef.
- Mercer Hotel Barcelona.
Address: Carrer dels Lledó, 7, 08002 Barcelona, Spain
Located in a historically relevant center of Barcelona, Mercer Hotel is a luxury hotel offering 28 rooms incorporating medieval architectural designs and arts. The hotel offers extravagant services in the form of bars, spas and fitness centers. However, its utterly scrumptious selection of Mediterranean food will leave you in awe. One thing that makes this hotel a top choice is its location, as noted above. It is close to many mainstream tourist attractions in the city such as La Rambla, the Picasso Museum and El Born district.
- Hotel Palace GL
Address: Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 668, 08010 Barcelona, Spain
Established in 1919, Hotel Palace GL is one of the original Ritz Hotels and is said to be one with immeasurable charm and aesthetics. Throughout the length and breadth of the hotel, you can notice generous incorporation of Old European style. In fact, the staff is gussied up in traditional European clothes, making you believe that you have time-traveled. The only drawback of staying here is that the hotel is not close to tourist destinations. But, if you can pass that, then you will enjoy opulence which rests here.
- Grand Hotel Central Barcelona
Address: Via Laietana, 30, 08003 Barcelona, Spain
Often hailed as one of the best hotels in Europe, Grand Hotel Central is a sprawling adventure into the world’s best. It features spacious corridors, high ceiling rooms, and abundance of modern amenities which will give utmost relaxation. However, the biggest selling point of this hotel is its spectacular rooftop terrace which blesses you with some of the most mesmerizing views of the city.
- Melia Barcelona Sarria
Address: Av. de Sarrià, 50, 08029 Barcelona, Spain
Melia Barcelona Sarria can be found in a location which is a favorite of designers, Poblenou in Melia so you can expect to find yourself gazing at the beautiful landscape which surrounds you. The hotel is close to many high-end restaurants serving delicious food and drink. One distinguishing aspect of this hotel is that it specifically targets customers who are businesspersons or on a work trip. So, naturally, services offered are materially different in comparison to other hotels in the city.
- Le Meridien Barcelona
Address: La Rambla 111, Carrer del Pintor Fortuny, 4-6, 08001 Barcelona, Spain
Right in the middle of La Rambla, Le Meridien shines brilliantly—and why shouldn’t it? It is one of the best hotels in the city known particularly for its highly detailed interiors and colorful bathrooms. The only issue you may face in this hotel is that its location is a prime tourist spot so the neighborhood is usually swarming with people. Otherwise, it fits well with those who wish to stay close to the hubbub of city life as well as relish in luxury.
- Alma Barcelona GL
Address: Carrer de Mallorca, 271, 08008 Barcelona, Spain
Alma Barcelona can be found right next to the famous Boqueria food market and hence, is a place whose surroundings are marked by a never-ending crowd of tourists and locals. Of course, if you are okay with this, you will not be disappointed with the hotel and its remarkably managed services. It offers rooms which are personal in nature and often come with bathtubs. Also, you are assured lovely views of the streets.
