Hotels with beautiful sea views are rare in Barcelona, but The Serras, occupying the building where the 15-year-old Pablo Picasso had his first studio in 1896, has those and much more.

This 5-star beauty has a Michelin-starred restaurant, library and mellow roof terrace with a generous plunge pool and sun-drenched loungers – DJ sets on weekends tempt in a hip crowd.

It’s set in the charming, tourist-favourite Gothic Quarter – but within easy walking distance of the historic centre, the yacht-filled Port Vell and the seafood restaurants of Barceloneta.

Please note - we hope to one day have live prices for you, but for now, here are some useful links for you to compare prices...
