The 22 Best Barcelona Hotels 

Across all styles and price points. 


When it comes to important travel decisions, deciding where to stay is a close second behind the fundamental question of where to go. When Journy trip designers are providing hotel recommendations for travelers, they think holistically, with considerations for for neighborhood, type of accommodation, budget, services/features, and design/aesthetic.

  • Neighborhood
    Are you okay hopping on the metro to go from one end of the city to the other for sightseeing in the capital of Catalonia? Do you want to be within walking distance of the city center/nightlife? What about the historical old town? And what about shopping? If this is just a stopover from one city to the next, do you want to be near metro stations or a transit hub? Geographical proximity is an important factor to consider when thinking about what neighborhood best aligns with your tastes, preferences, and priorities.
  • Type of accommodation
    Are you traveling with kids and looking for adjoining guest rooms? Do you want two rooms on the same floor? Would you mind dozing off in a Queen bed or are you a stickler about a King? When it comes to European hotels—especially small boutique or historic properties—you can't expect the same type of accommodations as traditional American hotels, so it's important to do your research.
  • Budget
    How much you want to spend per night (or per person, per night) is arguably the most important considering when deciding where to stay.
  • Services/features
    What are your non-negotiables when it comes to hospitality services and features? Non-smoking? Free breakfast in a quaint dining room? Parking? A roof terrace? Swimming pool? Sea views? Stellar room service?
  • Design/aesthetic
    In your mind, is a hotel just a spot to catch some Zzzs, shower, scarf down breakfast, and head back out again? If so, the design and overall aesthetic of the property may not be as important of a consideration. But if you have plans to spend time around the hotel, maybe perch yourself in a corner to read or answer some emails, or head up to the rooftop bar for a pre-dinner drink, you may want to consider the vibe of the space—from modernist, minimalist decor with natural light streaming through large windows, to a cozy, more intimate art deco feel.

With these five considerations in mind, we've narrowed down a list of the best hotels in Barcelona across various styles and price points. But remember, travel is personal. That's why Journy builds every itinerary (complete with hotels, restaurants, activities, and transportation) from scratch, every time.

1Hotel 1898

Address

La Rambla, 109, 08002 Barcelona, Spain
In the very center of the lush, tree-lined Los Ramblas, you’ll find Hotel 1898. This luxurious hotel’s small pleasures will take you to the 19th century, accented with touches of the Spanish colonies in Cuba and the Philippines.

It’s one of the few hotels in the city that boasts a spa, so be sure to take advantage of that. And then, in the evening, relax alongside (or go for a dip in) the rooftop terrace pool, which overlooks the city.

2Mandarin Oriental

Address

Passeig de Gràcia, 38-40, 08007 Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain
A short walk from the Gaudí-designed Casa Batlló in Barcelona, you’ll find the upmarket Mandarin Oriental hotel on Passeig de Gràcia. 

This 5-star property practically screams sophistication: from its elegant rooms to the acclaimed restaurants, bistro, and bars known for their regional and gastronomic Catalan fare—including Moments (gastronomic), Blanc (all-day dining), Banker’s Bar (cocktails), Mimosa Garden (Mediterranean and cocktails), and Terrat (al fresco Peruvian).
Sounds like something you’d like to experience? Trust the experts at Journy to build an itinerary from scratch just for you with all the must-see sights and hidden gems.

5Monument Hotel

Address

Passeig de Gràcia, 75, 08008 Barcelona, Spain
Between the 19th century palace and location right on the Passeig de Gracia, the Monument Hotel is one of Barcelona's most desirable accommodations. Even more covetable? The hotel's dining and drinking options. Chef Martin Bersategui oversees the two renowned, Michelin-starred restaurants, Lasarte and Oria. The two cocktail bars are overseen by some of Spain's top mixologists. 

For some restoration after a long day of eating and sightseeing, the hotel offers a 24/7 gym and a full-service spa. 

6Cotton House Hotel

Address

Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 670, 08010 Barcelona, Spain
The Cotton House Hotel, as the name implies, is located in the former home of the cotton-makers' guild. This history is apparent in its original, 19th-century details, as well as L'Atelier, a bespoke shirt tailoring service on site. 

The rooms are largely white and luxurious, while lounge areas like the library and outdoor terrace offer alternative settings for rest and relaxation between sightseeing. As part of Marriott's Autograph Collection, Marriott Bonvoy members can use or earn points at a boutique-like property.

8Ohla Hotel

Address

Via Laietana, 49, 08003 Barcelona, Spain
Ohla Barcelona combines a neoclassical exterior with an ultra-modern interior for a best-of-both-worlds five-star stay. All rooms are sleek and spacious, but the particularly luxurious among them have large floor-to-ceiling windows and walk-in showers, while the Junior Suite Deluxe has a living room attached. 

A rooftop pool is practically a prerequisite among Barcelona's upscale hotels, and the one here fits the bill with its panoramic views and trendy loungers. Ohla Hotel also hits the mark with its Michelin-starred restaurant and adjacent organic wine bar. 

9Casa Bonay

Address

Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 700, 08010 Barcelona, Spain
A relatively recent addition to Barcelona's boutique hotel scene, Casa Bonay is a chic, affordable hotel on a largely residential street just off Placa de Tetuan. The property attracts creative locals and in-the-know travelers alike with its cocktail bar Libertine and rooftop lounge. The on-site coffee shop is also a destination in its own right.

Address

Carrer de Sant Pau, 9-11, 08001 Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain
Hotel Espana is a posh hotel in an 1859 building just three minutes from Liceu station and the Liceu Grand Theater at the edge of La Raval. It's a long-standing property, having hosted travelers since the 19th century. But after an admirable renovation and modernization effort, the hotel feels more luxurious than ever. The addition of a rooftop deck and cocktail bar definitely help. 

The on-site restaurant from rising chef German Espinosa features creative tasting menus as well as impressive mosaics. In general, the art around the property is a high point — this is a hotel thoroughly rooted in Barcelona's cultural and culinary scene. 

12H10 Cubik

H10 Cubik is located on Via Laietana at the confluence of El Born, La Raval, and the Gothic Quarter. With its contemporary design, trendy rooftop terrace, and free welcome drinks, the H10 Cubik is an all-around exceptional choice for a stay in Barcelona.

Address

Carrer de Mallorca, 178, 08036 Barcelona, Spain
Opening in fall of 2016, the Corner Hotel is one of the city's newer boutique hotels. Though it's located in a traditional, neoclassical building, the interior is modern and minimalist — rooms feature exposed brick, natural wood features, and strong black accents. 

On the first floor, the Corner Hotel has a lounge offering all-day dining and cocktails. In the summer months, the rooftop terrace and pool are open and provide fabulous views above the city.

Rambla de Catalunya, 7, 08007 Barcelona, Spain
The H10 Metropolitan is a design-driven four-star hotel directly located in the center of Barcelona's best sights and neighborhoods. The hotel itself is just half a block from Placa de Catalunya, while the major thoroughfare of Las Ramblas is just beyond it.

The 46-room property has a beautiful rooftop terrace that serves drinks and snacks, plus a tapas restaurant on the ground floor. 

19Sir Victor Hotel

Address

Carrer del Rosselló, 265, 08008 Barcelona, Spain
Sir Victor Hotel (formerly Hotel Omm) isn't located in a former palace like some of Barcelona's upscale hotels, but its architecture is notable nonetheless. Designed by Juli Capella, the facade is composed of overlapping limestone panels, lending a scaled or feathered appearance to the building. 

That's not the only notable design element of this five-star hotel. Hallways are rubber-lined to block out the city's noise, while the rooms themselves are simply furnished. 

The rooftop pool and terrace has an exceptional view of the Sagrada Familia and Casa Mila. The bar and restaurant here serve sharing places plus wine and cocktails. The ground floor restaurant Mr. Porter is an Amsterdam transplant and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 

20The Wittmore

Address

Carrer de Riudarenes, 7, 08002 Barcelona, Spain
Located down a dim alleyway in the Gothic Quarter, The Wittmore is a five-star, adults-only hideaway. Given its location and no-photographs policy, the hotel feels exclusive and club-like — an atmosphere the hotel wholeheartedly embraces through its plush velvet and tartan decor. 

The Witty restaurant serves British classics with a Catalan twist. While many of Barcelona's hotels have pools and patios that are best enjoyed in the summer season, The Wittmore's fireplace lounge make it a cozy winter getaway. There is a year-round rooftop as well. 

21Hotel Brummell

Address

Nou de la Rambla, 174, 08004 Barcelona, Spain
Hotel Brummel is a 20-room boutique hotel in the residential neighborhood of Poble Sec, adjacent to Montjuic Hill. Slightly offset from the heart of the city, the hotel aims to be a retreat for its guests. The next-door wellness center The Garage hosts free daily yoga classes for guests (as well as other workout classes) and the hotel organizes a weekly running club. And after a long day of sightseeing, there's the rooftop plunge pool and sauna. 

22Hotel Casa Camper

Address

Carrer d'Elisabets, 11, 08001 Barcelona, Spain
Hotel Casa Camper (affiliated with the Camper footwear brand) is a casual design hotel in the Raval neighborhood of Barcelona. From the friendly service to the complimentary snacks, the hotel fosters a familial atmosphere that's resulted in many a repeat guest.
