This swanky five-star has a rarefied position on luxury shopping avenue Passeig de Gràcia, near Gaudí’s Pedrera and Casa Battlo and the city’s chicest boutiques. Contemporary styled rooms with oak floors and floor-to-ceiling windows are filled with light.

Designer Patricia Urquiola’s interiors are spectacular, from the white-and-gold atrium to the white-on-white bedrooms. The two-bedroom Penthouse Suite occupies the entire eighth floor with wrap-around terraces.

The Michelin two-starred restaurant Moments has a fantastically creative Catalan menu,  there’s an all-day brasserie or you could go for drinks and nibbles in the tranquil Mimosa Garden. The rooftop terrace, complete with plunge pool is perfect for a sunset cocktail, or dinner at Terrata,  serving inventive Peruvian.

To top it all off there’s a fabulous spa, with a lap pool and fitness centre, and the best concierge service in town.

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

Casa Batllo

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain[0.2 miles]

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

Best for ages: 8+ | £32

Casa Mila (La Pedrera)

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain[0.5 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

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[0.9 miles]

Catalan’s gorgeous Modernista concert hall, Palau Musica, is a must-see for its extraordinary architecture. It’s now a UNESCO world heritage site.

Best for ages: 18+ | £17

External view of the Santa Eulalia Cathedral

Barcelona Cathedral

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain[1.2 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.

Best for ages: 18+ | Free

Church of Santa Maria del Mar

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain[1.6 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.

Best for ages: 18+ | Free

Casa Vicens

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain[1.9 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
