Our favourite rooms
We love the spacious Deluxe Rooms, especially the corner rooms at the back of the third floor, which spy on a pretty square; the Superior rooms facing Plaça de Cort are also rather winsome. All rooms, though, are lavished with covetable Italian and Spanish fabrics and bold combinations of prints and colours.
The rooftop pool comes with swoon-worthy city views.
Hotel Mamá’s underground spa has a dinky plunge pool and a tranquil treatment room housed in an ancient water tank, which was discovered when the hotel’s lower floors were being built.
