Luxury Hotels in Barcelona

But how will you ever decide where to book in a city like this one where you’re spoiled for choice with options? Help narrow your decision down by picking a preferred part of the city—be it La Barceloneta (near the beach!), the Gothic Quarter, El Raval, El Born, El Poblenou, or any other of Barcelona’s fantastic and diverse neighborhoods.
Some of our favorite five-star hotels across the city include the Cotton House Hotel, Hotel Omm, Hotel Casa Fuster, El Palace Hotel Barcelona, W Barcelona, Mandarin Oriental Barcelona, and Meliá Barcelona Sky.
These luxury hotels in Barcelona will make you rest in comfort and enjoy the city at it fullest.
Forget the architecture, the beaches, and everything else for just a second, because the local gastronomy scene deserves more than a moment of recognition. Prepare to feast like kings on your luxury getaway to Barcelona—the city is no stranger to Michelin stars.
Delicious dining experiences don’t stop there, however; there are countless restaurants in Barcelona that offer up unforgettable meals, including Hetta Cuisine, Betlem (and its newer sister restaurant, Bicnic), El Barri, Solomillo, Bar Cañete, and Estimar.
Enjoy a leisurely day (or two or three) perusing the city’s shopping
streets and treating yourself to some new chic pieces for your wardrobe while on vacation in Barcelona. The nucleus of Barcelona’s luxury shopping scene lies on Passeig de Gracia, featuring everyone’s favorite designers, from Chanel to Prada. Starting at Plaça Catalunya, the street winds its way towards Avinguda Diagonal, where you’ll find even more luxury brands, like Louis Vuitton and Montblanc.
For exclusive boutique finds, head to the El Born neighborhood or Carrer Major de Sarrià, where you’re sure to fall in love with the area’s jewelry, shoes, and unique items from local designers.
Definitely one of the best plans for your luxury travel to Barcelona!
Nightlife in Barcelona
When you’re ready to find somewhere to sip on a well-crafted cocktail or pop a bottle of champagne, the vibrant nightlife scene in Barcelona boasts a wide variety of bars and dance and night clubs to suit all tastes. Get dressed to the nines and have a spare-no-expenses evening at one of Barcelona’s most posh clubs, like Sutton Barcelona, CDLC, Eclipse, Shôko, and Bling Bling, to name but a few.
Those looking for a more subdued vibe, get cozy at one of Barcelona’s wine bars, like El Diset or Monvínic, and prepare to (easily) find a new favorite Catalan wine. Catalonia is best known for its cava production, but don’t let that stop you from exploring some of the area’s other varieties, including, but not limited to, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot.
