The Gran Hotel La Florida has to be one of the most luxurious hotels in Barcelona. It is not the most central of hotels, however, being approximately a 20 minute drive from the centre of the city. However, this distance gives it a very tranquil feel. Some hotels trade location for quality of service and facilities, but you will certainly not find any compromise here. Guests are treated to exceptionally spacious bedrooms that have been designed by a range of esteemed artists, as well as very large indoor and outdoor swimming pools. It has been refurbished in the past year and provides gorgeous views of Barcelona. A room with a view will greatly add to your experience here.
The Hotel Omm is very popular with foreign as well as home grown clientele. This is due to the vibrant atmosphere, renowned on site restaurant, Le Moo, its regularly frequented night club, Ommsession, and the 50s themed cocktail bar. It location on the corner of Passeig the Gracia also helps; it is near La Pedrera de Gaudi, which can be viewed from its roof terrace. It is on this terrace that one will find the swimming pool. A sumptuous spa and revamped hairdressers are also available.
Although W Barcelona was only established a little over 2 years ago, it has already made a name for itself amongst the city’s great hotels. Its location on the beachfront at Barceloneta, beside the port, inspired its designer, Ricardo Bofill. Its shape has earned it the nickname of The Sail. It is ideally situated beside the buzz of the city, so is perfect for those who love sun, sea and sand. A variety of facilities is available here, such as a luxurious health spa, gym and open air swimming pool. On the 23rd floor is the W Bar, with great panoramic views of the city.
The Hotel Casa Fuster is unique in Barcelona, in that it was established around the walls of an historic building, designed by the well regarded architect Lluis Domènech I Montaner at the beginning of the 20th century. In 2004 it was completely refurbished. Gold and mahogany were used to complete the decor of the guestrooms. The rich wall hangings will remind you that you are staying somewhere special. The spa and spacious terrace swimming pool, as well as the delicacies offered on the restaurant menu and the jazz bar are just what the weary holidaymaker wants to relax and unwind, and ensured that this hotel was named Best Urban Hotel in 2008.
Casa Camper is ideally located in the fashionable Raval neighbourhood. Its 25 unique rooms are divided in by a corridor, which essentially gives the guest two rooms. One overlooks the street and consists of a cosy sitting room cum office. The bedroom proper faces the building’s interior, ensuring a quiet night’s sleep. The decor has been designed with regard for the environment; and uses recycled materials. The self service snack bar is open all hours if you fancy a bite to eat.
If you are looking for the best hotels in Barcelona, those five are well worth exploring. They are not the cheapest but if quality and comfort are important to you, it is worth paying a little extra.
