El Palauet Ice queen

White. It’s not just a colour, it’s a lifestyle darling. That is what El Palauet would have you believe anyway. It’s truly difficult not to be taken in by the icy splendor of these enormous apartments.

If you want to indulge your inner diva this is the perfect stage. Fancy waking up to the smell of homemade breakfast caressing your nostrils? No problem! Each suite comes with its very own PA who is at your every beck and call. Make sure you ask them for a tailor made tour of Passeig de Gracia, the only shopping avenue where you can get a side of Gaudi with your Givenchy.

Inside BCN Holiday apartments

Unlike single location hotels, Inside BCN boasts three separate buildings throughout the city, each hosting numerous apartments in modern youthful stylings.

Two of the vacation rentals are located in centric Born, offering studios, apartments and lofts with both one and two bedrooms. While you won’t hear someone rapping at your door at eight in the morning yelling out, “house cleaning!” (for better or for worse), you will feel comfortably pampered nonetheless. Each apartment is fully equipped, whether you want a kitchen for cooking, satellite TV and DVD player for relaxing after a day of city exploration or Wi-Fi for plugging into the world you swore you were unplugging from (or just checking Unlike for a dinner recommendation), you won’t be disappointed.

In the heart of Barcelona, just a few minutes walk from the beach and Las Ramblas, Born is where the historic and the modern intertwine, catering to food lovers, followers of fashion and culture vultures.

The third apartment complex is located in Sants—next to the Carrer de Sants, the city’s longest shopping street—and houses the most thoughfully decorated dwellings. Not directly near the beach, staying in this area has other pluses like its proximity to the trade center or the relatively easy stroll to Las Ramblas and Plaça Catalunya.

Chic & Basic Born Look towards the light featured

This striking hotel is ideal for travelers looking to enjoy a stylish and stimulating experience in Barcelona. Its central location is the perfect starting point to discover the city.

Rooms are spacious and bright, decorated with a tasteful minimalist aesthetic. There are three room types: XL, L and M, all of which are equipped with LED light systems which transform the atmosphere according to different ‘moods’, flat screen TVs and Internet access. All the rooms have en-suite facilities with a modern crystal shower in the center, 22 foot-high ceilings, and colored curtains. A very distinctive and eccentric ensemble.

Next To Hotel Up and coming

Opened in July 2008, Next To is one of Barcelona’s youngest hotels. What it lacks in age, however, it makes up for in its playful aesthetic and ideal location. Situated in the heart of Barcelona in the modernist Eixample district, To Next is just a few meters from the Paseo de Gracia and some of the most prestigious shops and restaurants in town.

For those in need of a breather from the bustling city, there is the hotel’s unique garden terrazza with hanging wicker chairs, wooden garden furniture and a view of “La Pedrera” on the first floor. Alternatively the top floor of the building provides a fully equipped solarium. All rooms are decked out in a trendy, minimalist appeal, mirrored by the tasteful decor of the lobby.

The Rooftops Holiday apartments

If you’re looking for accommodation that’s more akin to coming back to your own apartment than checking in at a hotel, The Rooftops offer the key to your homecoming. With 11 apartments situated in central Barcelona, you can have your pick between staying on Las Ramblas, in Pasaje del Reloj, Eixample, Gracia or the Born district.

All of the apartments were renovated between 2002 and 2004, so you can be sure that you’ll be receiving rooms with modern day amenities, and more importantly, your own kitchen in most cases. At prices not much different from standard hotel rooms, The Rooftops provide a great alternative for travelers who’d rather enjoy more space than room-service.

Pick up your key from The Rooftops staff at the beginning of your stay and drop it off at the end. Other than that the place is yours. A great option for those who cherish their independence.

Banys Orientals Ramon Parellada's masterpiece

Banys Orientals is the result of an intelligent response to Barcelona’s hotel scene by one of its savviest restaurateurs, Ramon Parellada. He saw a gap between the cheap pensions and the expensive, impersonal edifices and decided to fill it with a small, fashionable, inexpensive hotel in the heart of the city. Parellada closed his successful restaurant in the Old Town district of El Born for a year, gutted the 18th-century building above it, and filled it with a minimalist 43-room hotel, retaining the old stone façade and internal courtyard.

Banys Orientals though simple and sparse presents an elegant, unpretentious style with soft lighting, gunmetal-greys and black tiles contrasting with the stone and deep ocher of the façade.
Since opening in May 2002, the hotel has received rave reviews including being named in Conde Nast Traveller as one of the 50 most recommended hotels in the world (2003) and the 10 most recommended hotels in the Mediterranean (2004).
