Looking for boutique hotels in Barcelona? From wonderful rooftops to relaxing spas, here are five of the top boutique hotels in Barcelona!
Charming, quaint and quiet would be three words to describe this adorable boutique hotel, Villa Emilia. You’ll find it located in Barcelona’s Eixample district. It may not be quite in the heart of it all, but you’ll be grateful for that after a busy day of sightseeing, and you return home to the quiet oasis rooftop. Furthermore, why not sip on a delicious vermouth and enjoy the sunset.
Duquesa de Cardona
Without a doubt one of the best rooftop terraces in Barcelona, the Duquesta de Cardona hotel overlooks Barcelona’s old port and the Mediterranean sea. The building, dating back to the 14th century, has been reformed. However, it still maintains the mysterious charm of the historical Gothic Quarter.
As far as location goes, Hotel Neri wins the prize. Tucked away on a narrow street of the Gothic Quarter, the hotel matches its surroundings. Full of rich colors and textures, heavy oak doors and a terrace on the historic square of Sant Felip Neri. We love this beautiful square, which is full of colorful history. Order a glass of chilled Spanish sparkling wine, sit back and take in the relaxing evening vibes.
Right off Barcelona’s exclusive Passeig de Gracia, Alma Barcelona is a hotel with smart, sleek decor—think leather armchairs in dark tones. It also has a wonderful spa complete with an indoor pool, Hamma, and sauna.
Right on Via Laietana, Ohla Hotel is your best bet for a modern and trendy boutique hotel in Barcelona with an ultra-central location. The five-minute walk to Plaça Catalunya is pretty nice, as is the buzzing rooftop pool and also the Michelin-starred restaurant, Saüc.
Casa Camper is a creative design boutique hotel in Barcelona, focusing on functionality with friendly, approachable aesthetics. Highlights include a lounge area in each room, a great location with just a five-minute walk to Barcelona’s famous Boqueria market. Not to mention access to a 24-hour snack-bar that includes everything from coffee and soft drinks to salads and sandwiches.
Classic Catalan charm combined with modern and chic decor, Mercer Hotel is one of Barcelona’s most charming boutique hotels. Rooms feature original wooden beams which are typical of Catalan homes. Full of exposed brick walls, it’s a beautiful space within an ancient building of the Gothic Quarter. Another incentive is, of course, a poolside bar and a fabulous and relaxing lounge area on the terrace.
Combining one of the top boutique hotels in Barcelona with delicious food is a no-brainer, right!? For all you foodies out there, wouldn’t you agree that there’s no better way to wake up than to the smell of freshly baked bread? This boutique hotel in Barcelona was inspired by one of the city’s best bakeries, Baluard. Loaves upon loaves of freshly baked bread and pastries will await you every morning before you hit the city for some sightseeing. Check out a full list of hotels for the ultimate foodie in Barcelona!
