Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí sculpted some of his famously surreal buildings in Barcelona's genteel Eixample district, among elegant Gothic villas and four blocks from the Gallery Hotel, where current rates have dropped by 40%.
Check in for a July stay for $150 (€117) per night, or visit May-June for $162 (€126) per night. Book through Perfect Escapes to receive these bonuses:
Enjoy views over Barcelona's rooftops or cobbled streets from the Superior Rooms, many of which come with iPod docks and iPads pre-loaded with information about local sights.
This 4-star hotel is around the corner from La Pedrera, a Gaudí apartment building whipped into soft peaks like meringue. Three blocks further is Casa Batlló, a UNESCO World Heritage site praised for its dreamlike perversion of Art Nouveau. Metro stations on either side of the hotel take riders to the medieval Barri Gotic or soaring Sagrada Familia cathedral.
Note: Bookings are pre-paid and nonrefundable.
