A stunning 19th-century building on one of the world鈥檚 most famous streets houses this luxury hotel that offers elegance and style. This hotel is full of history. The building, constructed in 1881, was originally a private residence and later became the headquarters of the Compa帽铆a General de Tabacos de Filipinas; the hotel鈥檚 name is taken from the year that the Spanish colonies of Cuba and the Philippines became independent. It was renovated in 2005 to become a luxurious colonial-style accommodation and there鈥檚 a range of bedrooms on offer, all decorated in warm tones with wood features and furniture. Spacious marble bathrooms, a pillow menu and free tea are available in all rooms, while the larger ones offer extras including free newspapers, a Nespresso machine or a private terrace. Fine dining is on offer at the Restaurante H1898, which also offers views over La Rambla, while the Bar H1898 continues the colonial theme with brown leather armchairs, wood panelling and lots of light. Up on the rooftop 'La Isabela' terrace, in the summer you can linger by the outdoor pool, savour signature cocktails and tapas, and even breakfast in this ample space with amazing views of the city; during cooler weather it's available for lunch and dinner. Last but certainly not least, the Spa H1898 is for the exclusive use of guests and features a pool, steam bath, sauna, gym, massages and more. The H1898 really is聽the complete package.

With an incredible location, real attention to detail, and newly refurbished rooms, the Barcelona Catedral hotel is a fantastic choice for getting the most out of a trip to the city. While this hotel聽has just 80 rooms, it goes big on services, location and comfort. Recently renovated, the bedrooms are warm, calm and comfy: you have the choice of one king or two twin beds, the duvets are feather and a pillow menu is available. For a post-sightseeing swim session, head up to the roof for a dip in the elongated pool and the chance to relax on one of the loungers; you get a great sense of the city from this spot, as the rooftop has views over numerous other buildings, letting you see washing lines and satellite dishes as well as church spires. For lunch during the week, it鈥檚 worth checking out the 4 Capellans restaurant. Not only is it bright and spacious, the menu is based around fresh local produce and there鈥檚 even a dish using an 18th鈥揷entury recipe. All in all you really get a sense that the team at Hotel Barcelona Catedral want you to have a great time when visiting the city. Offering extras such as free bike hire and twice-weekly free walking tours, as well as the chance to take a cooking class or get all the essentials so you can indulge in a romantic night in with your partner, it鈥檚 clear they鈥檝e taken the time to think about their guests as real people. Location:聽You鈥檙e right at the heart of the city with things to see and do as soon as you step outside the hotel. Pla莽a

This sleek boutique hotel聽has聽a cool European vibe, a splendid rooftop terrace and a great location at the heart of the city.聽 Although this is a larger-scale boutique hotel (with 91 rooms), the cool, indie vibes are strong there. From the designer furniture to the promotion of slow food and the plant-lined rooftop terrace hosting DJs and aperitif sessions, the Pulitzer is hip with a capital H. The bedrooms are light and have a cosy European loft vibe, with fittings made from natural materials and elements in聽bright colours to keep things interesting. Freebies in all the rooms include WiFi, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and bottled water, while additional services include personal yoga sessions, in-room massages, and access to the nearby Holmes Place gym and pool. The Greenhouse Restaurant is bright, and decorated with wooden furniture and large plants; its innovative, appealing dishes are made using local, seasonal produce. At lunchtime there鈥檚 a good value set menu, while in the evening you can choose between 谩 la carte and a tasting menu. If you鈥檙e in the mood for a drink, either head to the Lobby Bar or to the rooftop Pulitzer Terrace; both offer drinks, snacks and great music. Location: Cunningly located on a small street that gives onto Pla莽a Catalunya, at the Pulitzer you can enjoy the buzz of being in the city centre but slip away from the serious crowds to get to the hotel. It鈥檚 easy to walk to many of Barcelona鈥檚 sights and while you鈥檒l find a lot of familiar h

An excellent example of how a place can help to breathe new life into a city neighbourhood, this hotel also offers comfort, style and sought-after extras like a rooftop terrace with a pool and panoramic views and a popular Sunday brunch. Owned by the Spanish Barcel贸 chain, this hotel might have seemed a bit of a gamble when it was built in the late 2000s. The reason? Its location in the centre of El Raval neighbourhood, perhaps best described as a rough and ready area that tourists (and not a few locals) had previously tended to avoid. However, nowadays the barrio has undergone a notable but not totally suffocating gentrification process, and the hotel has much to commend it both in terms of local amenities and the聽Barcel贸 Raval's聽own services. From your first sight of the building, a dark-coloured ellipsis with a metal mesh-like cover, to the moment you see the views of the city from its rooftop terrace, this is a place full of visual treats. Pops of strong colour, vibrant lighting, 360-degree panoramas of Barcelona鈥 the list of memorable sensory experiences is long. There are three types of room, with the pricier ones being those with more floor space and better views, but they all share the big windows, technological touches and more than a nod to quality and comfort. One of the hotel鈥檚 biggest draws is its stunning rooftop, which includes a plunge pool and from where you feel as though you can see the whole city; while literally at the other end of the building, the B-Lou

Towering聽over the lower end of Barcelona鈥檚 beaches, this luxury hotel offers all you need for a great time that combines relaxation and fun. From stunning views across the sand and sea to restaurants, bars, pools and a spa, you may be hard-pressed to find a reason to leave during your stay. This striking contemporary hotel sits at the most southerly point of Barcelona鈥檚 some 4 kilometres of beach. Thanks to its appearance聽(which could also be said to resemble three-quarters of a silver lemon slice), the W Hotel is known locally as 鈥楲a Vela鈥, or 鈥楾he Sail鈥, and it鈥檚 a fitting nickname for this five-star accommodation that offers stunning views of both the city skyline and the Mediterranean horizon. This is a place where the details count, and there are numerous different services to experience; indeed, far too many to list here. We鈥檙e talking two pools, two restaurants, four bars (including one on the 26th floor and two in the lobby); private cocktail classes, guest DJs, exclusive poolside cabins. There鈥檚 even a range of Ricardo Cavolo limited edition sneakers, for goodness sake! The whole vibe is luxury glam in a place set apart from the crowds and stresses of the city centre, so if you want a break surrounded by beautiful people where your every desire can be catered to right there, this is the hotel for you. Location: Its beachfront position is clearly one of the W鈥檚 big selling points (viz. the positioning of beds for contemplating the views), and it's close to beach bars

You'd hardly know you were in the heart of Barcelona once you're inside Born's most in-demand hotel: the place is wonderfully quiet, with Hitchcockian corridors opening up onto sleekly appointed rooms. The big bedrooms exhibit a contemporary edge, with modern furniture, industrial-style windows (some of which look out onto the Pla莽a Ram贸n) and nicely planned mod cons. The real charm of the hotel lies on the roof. Here you can sip a cocktail and admire the wonderful views while floating in the vertiginous infinity pool. There's also a swish cocktail bar and Mediterranean restaurant on the ground floor.
