This is one of my favorite hotels in town. I love their combination of modern and old: this trendy boutique hotel is inside a building by Domènech i Muntaner, one of the top architects of Barcelona modernism, but it has been decorated with a luxurious but discreet modern touch at the same time.
All the clients I pick up there for my tours are delighted about it. Plus it's just off the shopping district, with plenty of food options nearby too.
If I was visiting Barcelona, I'd definitely chose here to stay.
