This fabulous, personality-stacked design hotel sits between Barcelona’s lively Eixample and Gràcia neighbourhoods.

Its striking façade, with balconies formed by peeled-back slits in the building fabric, is matched by pared-back concrete and bold mid-century influenced interiors.

Minimalist rooms have large bathrooms, and (some) leafy, peaceful balconies, facing residential buildings nearby.

The main steak restaurant is all leather banquettes and sizzling platters – turning into an upmarket buffet-breakfast spot each morning, with light options and fresh juices – and there’s a relaxed mezzanine library-lounge.

The slim rooftop pool, with a buzzy cocktail bar, cushioned beds and views of the rippling roof-terrace of Gaudi’s famous La Pedrera building, is an oasis amid the city hubbub, while inside there’s an industrial-feel, minimalist spa with a pool and steam room.

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

Casa Mila (La Pedrera)

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain[0.2 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[0.7 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

Casa Vicens

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain[1.1 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
