OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The Mandarin Oriental has a great location on the celebrated Passeig de Gràcia, ideal for upmarket shopping and near plenty of restaurants and bars. Touristic hotspots and key areas like Las Ramblas, Plaça Catalunya and the Old City are nearby. It's about a 25-minute drive from El Prat Airport. The hotel is within walking distance of the Gaudi modernist landmarks Casa Milà and Casa Batlló. The popular food market, Mercat de la Boqueria, is a 15-minute walk.

By plane: there are direct flights 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 El-Prat airport. Book flights to Barcelona.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Sleek, understated luxury has been achieved by acclaimed Spanish interior designer Patricia Urquiola. White and light-coloured expanses, spacious public and guest room areas, splashes of colour, use of contemporary wood panelling, vibrant patterns, numerous artworks and hanging topiaries all combine to create a relaxing ambience.

THE FACILITIES

Unsurprisingly for a hotel of this calibre, the staff are very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. There's a well-stocked fitness centre, spa, rooftop terrace and a good choice of high-quality restaurants and bars. There is no business centre, however guests can borrow laptops and use the hotel's printer.
