Our favourite rooms
We love the Atic rooms, some of which have sliding glass doors leading onto a terrace that’s perfect for an in-suite breakfast. Several of the Design Deluxe Rooms are also terrace-enhanced. Anyone planning to not see much of Barcelona should book a Junior Suite, which has a 55-inch flatscreen TV begging for some box-set bingeing.
There’s an unheated infinity pool on the roof, with its own cocktail bar and wide-ranging views taking in the summit of the Sagrada Familia and Montjuïc, with its castle and palace.
There are various rooms for massages and other beauty treatments to take place in, including by the pool, but no dedicated spa.
Bring binoculars for eyeing up La Sagrada Familia from the rooftop bar, and stylish swimwear for parading at the pool.
The hotel is wheelchair-friendly, with all communal areas easily accesible for disabled guests, including the rooftop pool, as well as certain bedrooms.
Children of all ages are welcome and the staff are great with kids, but extra beds are not provided. Babysitting is available for €80 a night.
