This hotel, in a restored neoclassical office building from 1926, does its name justice. Set in the heart of the trendy El Born district, it is only minutes from many attractions. It is owned by Pau Guardans, a Barcelona lover who is happy to share insider tips with his guests. Here’s one of them: borrow an electric bicycle from the hotel and explore Barcelona via its 75 miles of bike paths. The hotel’s beautiful roof terrace with pool and Skybar is a recent addition.
