Mandarin Oriental Barcelona

Passeig de Gràcia, 08007 Barcelona

Occupying an elegant mid-20th-century building on a chic Barcelona avenue, with a double Michelin-starred restaurant and one of the best spas in the city, the Mandarin Oriental Barcelona aims to impress. The hotel’s striking façade, created by designer Manuel Ignacio Galindez, sets the bar high for guest’s expectations, and justly so. The plush public areas carry an air of Asian opulence and grandeur, thanks to the hardwood floors and delicate ivory decor, while the 120 guestrooms and suites—many looking out onto the upscale boutiques of the Passeig de Gràcia—feature strong, crisp lines and sophisticated color schemes. From the plump armchairs and cloudlike beds to the iPod docks and toiletries by Acqua di Parma, the experience here is 100 percent deluxe.

I’ve stayed at Mandarins all over the world, but this has to be one of the best. The decor, design, and overall aesthetic is absolutely divine. Service is world class, as is Moments [their Michelin starred restaurant]. If you’re going to stay here, consider booking a suite facing Passeig de Gracia.
