This exquisite hotel is just off the central Passeig de Gracia, near Gaudí’s famous La Pedrera building. Set in an elegantly converted townhouse with a secret courtyard, it oozes understated chic.

The spare, sophisticated design in muted earthy tones is a world away from cold minimalism, and the attention to small details (ridiculously comfortable beds with fine linens and Bulgari toiletries, for example) makes this hotel a real haven in the heart of the city.

Charming, personalised service from enthusiastic staff means you feel looked after; and there’s a chic little spa, offering massages and beauty treatments along with an indoor pool.

Located in the chic Eixample district, you’re close to excellent shops and restaurants, as well as the city’s finest Modernista monuments.

Bucket list experiences our writer says you must do in this destination, closest first

Casa Mila (La Pedrera)

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain[0.1 miles]

Marking the culmination of his experimentation with natural forms, Gaudi’s landmark apartment building resembles a giant cliff face battered by the sea. Inside, a remarkable Gaudi-style apartment, an attic filled with architectural exhibits, and the extraordinary roof and chimneys.

Best for ages: 8+ | £25

Casa Batllo

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain[0.3 miles]

The former home of the Batllo family, Gaudí’s shimmering, colour-drenched townhouse is a Modernista masterpiece.

Best for ages: 8+ | £32

Other worthwhile experiences in this destination if you have the time or the interest, closest first

Inside view of The extraordinary La Palau Musica concert hall

Palace of Music

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain[1.3 miles]

Casa Vicens

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain[1.5 miles]

The first private home Gaudi designed, this bright Orientalist building only opened to the public in 2017, so it’s a relatively new addition to Barcelona’s Modernista scene – as such, its brightly-tiled and painted interior is often blissfully quiet.

Best for ages: 13+ | £12

External view of the Santa Eulalia Cathedral

Barcelona Cathedral

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain[1.6 miles]

This massive pile is Catalan Gothic at its most grandiose, full of wonders: lavishly ornate chapels, Renaissance sculpted choir stalls, and crypt of patron saint Eulalia. The cloister is especially charming.

Church of Santa Maria del Mar

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain[2 miles]

Barcelona’s Gothic jewel was built in the 14th century by the sea-faring community in only 50 years – hence its rare stylistic harmony. During the Spanish Civil War, its accumulated Baroque decorations burned, leaving behind the bare bones of its sublime interior.
