Fabulous location along the Passeig de Gracia, near upscale shopping and Gaudi monuments
The Majestic Hotel & Spa is situated right in the heart of modernist Barcelona, next to Gaudi monuments -- the Gaudi Museum is two blocks away -- on Passeig de Gracia. The location is great for getting around on foot and there are plenty of upscale shops around the hotel (Gucci, Chanel, Hermes, and more). For dining, there are numerous restaurants within walking distance. In addition, Plaza de Catalunya and Las Ramblas -- the famous pedestrian thoroughfare -- are both a 10-minute walk away.
Barcelona -- a cosmopolitan hub for arts, culture, and nightlife -- is the second largest city in Spain and the capital of Catalonia. Located on the northeast coast of the Iberian Peninsula, the city has a Mediterranean climate with mild, humid winters and warm, dry summers.
The 276-room Majestic Hotel & Spa has a prime location, steps from designer shops and Gaudi monuments. All rooms were renovated in 2011, giving them a fresh, modern feel. Amenities include flat-screen TVs, stocked minibars, Nespresso machines, and interesting art. Spacious marble bathrooms have Bulgari toiletries, bathrobes, and rainfall showerheads. For more luxury, the 41 suites offer views over Passeig de Gracia; some have private terraces and 24-hour personalized service. Families might want to choose apartments that also include full kitchens. Other hotel highlights include a small rooftop pool and a rooftop terrace with an atmospheric bar and great city views; a contemporary on-site spa; and a fitness center. The restaurant serves a morning breakfast buffet and evening tapas; the bar offers live piano music; and the business center has free Internet.
