Regal and classic are two words that sum up this historic five-star hotel, located on one of Barcelona’s main central thoroughfares.
Stay here and you’ll find yourself just a few blocks from the designer boutiques on the elegant Passeig de Gracia, and the heart of the city at Plaza Catalunya.
Each of the 125 guest rooms feature imperial touches, from grand fireplaces and glittering chandeliers, to heavy gold curtains and bedspreads. Bold-patterned wallpapers and antique-style furniture add to the look. Salvador Dalí and his wife Gala, once lived in the Royal Suite which has since been renamed in his honour.
With stately décor comes royal service, and each morning guests are treated to breakfast in the hotel’s peaceful garden, surrounded by plants and fountains.
You’ll also be spoilt for choice when it comes to evening dining options, with Michelin-starred cuisine from chef Romain Fornell at the Michelin-starred Caelis Restaurant or tapas and light bites at the sophisticated 19Ninteen. And to finish off the night, head to the English-inspired Bluesman Cocktail Bar, a cosy space just perfect for a nightcap.
