Free WiFi throughout and a fitness centre. In rooms: a flatscreen TV, minibar, tea and coffee, free bottled water and Prija bath products.
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 heated 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.
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. All rooms can fit one baby cot (for kids aged two and under) and the Junior Suite can fit an extra bed (€56 a night). Babysitting is available for €80 a night.
All ages are welcome, but it’s better suited to older children who can sleep in their own inter-connecting room.
Design Rooms can be made to be inter-connecting and some have twin beds.
Children are welcome at Xerta; there’s no dedicated menu but dishes can be adapted to suit younger palates. Highchairs are provided and staff will happily heat up milk and baby food. Children are welcome at all times in the Sky Bar and in the lobby bar between 8am and 8pm.
€80 an hour and should be booked in advance.
No need to pack
Buggies can be borrowed at an extra charge.
No extra beds are available. Children can only share a room with one adult.
