OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

You'll love the location if you relish being on Las Ramblas, a vibrant thoroughfare day and night. Transport hub Plaça Catalunya and bustling Boqueria open-air market are both very near, and posh shopping street Passeig de Gracia is only a little further. Fab buzzing restaurant Sumac and Mambo, with an open kitchen for you to watch the skilled chefs put together dazzling modern cuisine, is nearby.

By plane: Fly to El-Prat from London (2 hours 5 mins), Manchester (2 hours 20 mins) and Edinburgh (2 hours 40 mins). The hotel is a 30-minute drive from the airport. Book flights to Barcelona.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

This modernist building was once the headquarters of the Philippine Tobacco Company, and the colonial look persists. From the ornate ironwork entrance on a quiet side street just off Las Ramblas, you enter an elegant interior of Chesterfield sofas and wood panelling. The décor blends Spanish colonial style with modern flourishes, and there are sisal floors and exposed brick.

THE FACILITIES

The hotel offers a good range of facilities, from a spacious lobby with lots of comfortable seating and a cocktail bar, to a restaurant overlooking Las Ramblas and a rooftop terrace with a pool and great city views. There's an attractive spa, an indoor pool and a gym. There are computers and printers for guests' use, as well as a small library.
