A setting in a restored 19th-century palace with a 2-Michelin-star restaurant, and a rooftop pool and bar with heavenly views over old Barcelona make this one of the most popular hotels in the city -- you should book well in advance.
Guests rave about the rooftop pool, which is super-refreshing after a day stomping the streets. The rooftop bar is likewise acclaimed for its view over Barcelona’s historic centre and one of Gaudi’s surreal signature buildings, La Pedrera, opposite. It's open every day during the summer (closed in January and Monday-Tuesday, October-May). The hotel is located on the Paseo de Gracia in Modernist Barcelona and the central meeting place of Plaza Cataluña is a few minutes’ walk away.
Rooms are a decent size and decorated in smooth, neutral shades, hardwood floors and matching wooden headboards. All come with free Wi-Fi and free international and national newspapers accessible from your smartphone or tablet. Upgrade to an Executive Room or Suite for free contents of the mini bar and a Nespresso coffee machine. Some rooms have terraces overlooking the interior gardens.
People travel from all over Spain and beyond to eat at chef Martín Berasategui’s two Michelin-starred Lasarte Restaurant. Sample dishes include crayfish à la vanilla with marrow cream and foie gras roasted in seaweed-fermented soy broth. It's open for dinner only (closed August-November 2014 for renovations). Berasategui also runs the more accessible Loidi bistro.
Note: Some sections of the hotel will be undergoing renovations until 2015.
