If you’re looking for a Barcelona hotel with charm and Insta-worthy interiors, Claris Hotel & Spa 5*GL will not disappoint. Centrally located in the Eixample neighbourhood, the hotel is set in Palau Vedruna, a former palace that dates back to the nineteenth century.
While many hotels boast rooftop bars, Claris Hotel & Spa goes one better with a pool on its highest level allowing you to soak up incredible views of this stunning city from your lounger. Unwind side-by-side by the pool with nothing more taxing to decide than which cocktail and tasty tapas the friendly and helpful waiters should bring to you next.
Perfectly located for sightseeing and shopping, this five-star luxury hotel sits in the heart of Barcelona’s shopping, cultural and tourist district, close to Gaudi’s La Pedrera, Casa Batlló and the world-famous Sagrada Familia. It’s also a 10min stroll from Avenida Diagonal, Las Ramblas and the historic Gothic Quarter.
Derby Hotel Collection’s founder Jordi Clos is an Egyptologist, collector and art patron, and his love for art is reflected in all the hotels. Guests sleep surrounded by original art objects. Each suite, duplex or standard room is designed with precious materials such as hardwood headboards with inlaid oak or black poplar root. Guests are also given a smartphone with which you can use to summon anything from extra pillows to ice for your celebratory glasses of Champagne.
Dive into authentic Mediterranean fare at La Terraza del Claris on the rooftop. Imagining something more bouji? Mr Kao, the first Dim Sum Club in Barcelona is inspired by the golden era of Shanghai’s private clubs.
