ABaC started life as a well-regarded restaurant in Barcelona's fashionable Carrer Rec district. After moving to the upmarket Sarria-sant Gervasi area, adding 15 boutique bedrooms and securing two Michelin stars, it’s now of "5-star-hotel standard", says Condé Nast Traveler, who included it on their 2011 Gold List. How far it has come.

"'Restaurant with rooms' doesn't do it justice", says Harper's Bazaar, and yet Restaurant ABaC continues to be the big draw. It's called "one of the city's best" by Lonely Planet, with the youngest chef in Spain ever to win a Michelin star running the kitchen (it now holds two). Jordi Cruz's menu is made up of avant-garde combinations such as Galician lobster cooked in coral juice with foie gras. There is also a futuristic basement bar and a wine cellar with more than 800 labels available.

If you can drag yourself away, entrance to the lovely and large on-site Elemis spa is complimentary for guests (treatments are extra). There's a large Jacuzzi with underwater recliners, a cold pool, a Hammam and heated sunbeds to relax on. The nearby Parc Güell is a 15-minute walk and Plaza Catalunya is 10 minutes away by taxi.

The bedrooms have a touch of the futuristic about them, with high-tech lighting that responds as you move, a Jacuzzi bath and internet Bang & Olufsen TVs. Wi-Fi is also free. It is worth upgrading to a Superior Room for use of a large terrace, where lunch or dinner can be served.

From the press:

  • "The welcome is discreet but warm" -- Condé Nast Traveler

  • "'Restaurant with rooms' doesn't do justice to ABaC -- despite the fact that the two-Michelin-starred restaurant is the hotel's headline act -- there's also the teched-up rooms, pristine interiors and gorgeous spa to consider" -- Harper's Bazaar

  • "[The hotel] receives high marks for its beautifully designed rooms… lovely spa and one of the city's best restaurants" -- Lonely Planet
