Barcelona’s Best Boutique Hotels

The beauty of Barcelona is often in the details—the intricate tile work at the Park Güell, the displays at the Boquería market, the geese in the cathedral’s cloister. A stay at one of Small Luxury Hotels of the World’s properties can serve as a reminder to appreciate small pleasures. The 520 properties in more than 80 countries include the world’s finest small independent hotels. Here is a look at the six hotels in Barcelona, each with their own unique style, eager to welcome you to their city.

Carrer de Pau Claris, 150, 08009 Barcelona
Owned by notable art collector and scholar Jordi Clos, Hotel Claris occupies Palacio Vedruna, a 19th-century palace. The glamorous palace is as beautiful inside as out, with third and fifth-century Roman mosaics, marble statues, and a water garden.

The interiors blend upscale, contemporary furnishings such as polished hardwood floors, hand-painted decorations on the walls, mosaics, and classical antiquities like Egyptian carvings and Hindu sculptures from Clos’s collection. The hotel’s public spaces are second-to-none, including a dedicated museum of pre-Columbian art on the first floor, a rooftop terrace with panoramic views, a decent-sized pool, and first-rate restaurants.
