Other hotels arround Barcelona

There are around two thousand hotels in Barcelona, hence we do not pretend here to provide an exhaustive list. Hotel directories could be easily found within any of the common tourist guides available on-line (see for instance "The Lonely Planet", "Time Out", "Michelin", "Routard", etc.). Instead, below we provide a short selection of interesting hotels that we believe are unique, either because of their special design or architecture, because their location or unique views of the city, or simply because they are emblematic of the city. They have also been selected in such a way that their locations run from the Tibidabo (the mountain in the northern part of the city) to La Barceloneta (the old fisherman's neighborhood), passing through famous neighborhoods such as Gracia, l'Eixample or the Gothic quarter. Most of the hotels described below are not specially cheap, however they do often offer special prices if you book your room sufficiently in advance. Even more interesting, almost all of the hotels listed below open their amazing terraces with "genuine" views of the city (some of them even with live music) to the non-clients. Do not hesitate to stop by and have a beverage, grab a bite or have a cocktail.


Brief Description

Praktik Rambla ***

Cheap, beautiful and a short hop from the fashionable Passeig de Gracia, this hotel is in a historic art nouveau building. In the Praktik Rambla boutique hotel the original Art Nouveau elements of the building are conserved, such as the mouldings of the high ceilings or the mosaic floors (original 19th century tile work).

Barcelo Raval ****

The Barcelo Raval hotel is located right in the heart of Barcelona. At a short walking distance is the metro station Liceu, from where you can comfortably access points of interest throughout the city. To crown this hotel's design, there is a attic where you can enjoy the spectacular 360 views from the terrace.

Neri ****

The original (and some say the best) of the city's boutique hotels, the Neri is untouchable on location, if nothing else. It sits on a quiet medieval sidestreet alongside the cathedral, and is a romantic spot with its gothic arches and staircase, great oak doors and rich colours.

Pulitzer ****

A superb city-centre location, just steps from Plaça Catalunya. The rooftop bar has a serious party vibe. Some of the city's best cocktails are available in the lobby.

Hotel 1989 ****

Situated on Barcelona's famous La Rambla, this restored 19th-century building features a heated rooftop pool with a sun terrace. The colonial-style Hotel 1898 features a stylish restaurant serving Mediterranean cuisine.

Mercer Barcelona *****

Located in the heart of the Gothic Quarter and with just 28 rooms, the Mercer Hotel Barcelona is a unique establishment that has restored a heritage building of tremendous historical value to the city, whose origins go back to the 1st century AD, represented by part of the Roman wall of ancient Barcino, before passing through the mediaeval and modern eras up to the present day.

Hotel Omm *****

Hotel Omm, in the heart of Barcelona's Paseo de Gracia, is about innovation, design, modernity, cuisine, comfort and luxury.

W-Barcelona *****

Grand Hotel Central *****

The hotel has a perfect location between the Gothic district with its spectacular Cathedral or the ancient city walls and "el Born". Its very famous infinity pool, the Avalon Restaurant where the awarded Chef Ramon Freixa presents affordable cuisine.

Casa Fuster ***** GL

Without doubt, the most emblematic hotel is Hotel Casa Fuster. Located in the heart of Barcelona, on Passeig de Gracia, this genuine gem designed by the Catalan architect Lluis Domenech i Montaner symbolises the spirit of modernism in its maximum capacity.

La Florida ***** GL

Thanks to its prime location on Tibidabo's Hill, the Gran Hotel La Florida 5 * GL is regarded as one of the top urban luxury resorts in the city. Ideal choice for those who wish to enjoy all that Barcelona offers in a unique setting of relaxation.
