Gran Hotel La Florida

Gran Hotel La Florida Rating: 5.0 Pearls

With a fairly removed location in the hills that ring the city, the 70-room Gran Hotel La Florida has a history as a luxurious, star-studded getaway far from the frenzy of Barcelona's crowds. Built in 1924, it has drawn celebrities from writer Ernest Hemingway to actor Rock Hudson through the years. Relaxation is the focus here -- from the beautiful indoor/outdoor pool to the tranquil Zen Zone Spa. Guest rooms feature contemporary furnishings in soothing neutral tones, great views of either the city or the Pyrenees Mountains, and spacious marble bathrooms. Apart from an adjacent amusement park, there is not much in the immediate vicinity, so those who want convenient sightseeing should consider a hotel in the city center.

Claris Hotel

Claris Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls

A former palace, the luxurious 124-room Hotel Claris is conveniently located within walking distance to Plaza Catalunya and Paseo de Gracia. The gorgeous rooms are quiet and creative with Egyptian-inspired art objects and marble bathrooms; there are several room types including chic duplex suites. The extensive array of features includes a rooftop pool, solarium, gym, and sauna. One highlight is the glass-enclosed cocktail bar and restaurant with striking city views. There is an on-site museum and interesting works of art in every hotel corner, but there is no tea or coffee in the rooms.

Casa Fuster Hotel

Casa Fuster Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The 105-room Casa Fuster is an upscale historic boutique near high-end shopping and Modernist architecture. The building itself is one of the most prominent examples of this style, with an elaborate façade and ornate marble interiors. Elegant rooms have pastel-colored walls, oversized headboards, and great amenities such as flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, Loewe toiletries, and surround sound systems. Some even have small in-room saunas, balconies and hydro-massage showers. But quarters can be tight, and king-size beds are really two smaller beds pushed together. Hotel features include a Mediterranean restaurant as well as a beautiful rooftop deck with a small pool and gorgeous panoramic views of Barcelona. Beautiful Café Vienes is a favorite among artists, intellectuals and locals, and its weekly jazz nights have performers such as Woody Allen and the New Orleans Rag Trio.

Hotel Omm

Hotel Omm Rating: 4.5 Pearls

For an upscale property in the Eixample neighborhood, near some of Barcelona's best dining and shopping, Hotel Omm is hard to beat. A suitable choice for business or leisure travelers, the hotel has all the amenities one would expect of a luxury property: a rooftop swimming pool with city views, a hot nightclub with table service, a spa that’s open daily, and the Michelin-starred restaurant Roca Moo. Rooms are elegant and spacious, some with balconies and views and all with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi.

El Palace Hotel

El Palace Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The Palace oozes elegance and old-world charm. Housed in an early 20th-century building a few blocks from the Gothic Quarter, the hotel is popular among well-heeled families, couples, and business travelers. The property boasts a Michelin-starred restaurant, Caelis; car service to the airport and major attractions; and a small but modern fitness center. The exclusive spa features the only Temazcal sauna in Spain, Anne Semonin products, and traditional Maya treatments. Classic, elegant rooms have upholstered walls, plush beds, and modern bathrooms with separate showers and tubs. Some even have Roman bath-style tubs. Updated in-room amenities include flat-screen TVs, minibars, DVD players, and free Wi-Fi. But there are no coffeemakers in the rooms, and you should expect to pay a hefty price for breakfast.

Mercer Hotel Barcelona

Mercer Hotel Barcelona Rating: 4.5 Pearls

One of Barcelona's top-rated hotels, the 28-room Mercer Barcelona offers the intimacy of a boutique hotel and the amenities of a larger property. Add in its location -- tucked away on a charming, cobblestone street in the city's Gothic Quarter, and within walking distance to many top attractions -- and the Mercer can be a win-win for travelers. Leisure travelers are the main customers here, but business travelers will likely appreciate its "business corner," with its library and computer, and small private areas for events and meetings. The hotel also offers several cocktail and dining options, including the Le Bouchon tapas bar and Jean Luc Figueras' Mercer Restaurant JLF, a rooftop lounge and small pool, a hanging garden, and some of the most comfortable beds around.

Catalonia Ramblas

Catalonia Ramblas Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Housed in the former headquarters of a renowned local newspaper, the Catalonia Ramblas features an unusual facade with a leaf motif that dates back to 1903. Inside, the decor is modern and minimalist, but lacks the historic charm of the hotel's exterior. Suites are spacious and some even have terraces with tiny splash pools. Standard rooms, however, feel a bit cramped. A chic courtyard with a pool and snack bar draws the crowds in the warmer months, but the hotel's main draw is its central location in the heart of Barcelona. Such a prime spot, however, means that the price tends to be a bit steep.

Hotel Praktik Rambla

Hotel Praktik Rambla Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 37-room Hotel Praktik Rambla is a small, charming boutique in a convenient, central location near La Rambla. This early 19th-century building is full of character with intricate tiled floors and magnificent ceiling molding. These historic details are juxtaposed with modern finishes, including in the rooms with striking artwork, angular furniture, and cool bathrooms. There is a sunny reading room with espresso machine and bay windows, and an interior courtyard with lounge areas. While some rooms can be small, they are clean and attractive.

Hotel Primero Primera

Hotel Primero Primera Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 30-room Hotel Primero Primera is a boutique in a quiet residential neighborhood. The rooms have been compared to luxury apartments by some guests, with nice extras including an honesty bar and free snacks in the lobby. A lovely, walled-in stone patio and small wading pool in the garden provide ample common space for relaxing. The hotel is located fairly far from Barcelona's center, but is in a posh residential neighborhood (nightlife is sparse). The metro is a few blocks away. Rooms are available in a variety of sizes -- some have nice balconies -- and have rain-style showers, stocked minibars, and flat-screen TVs.

Hotel Murmuri

Hotel Murmuri Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Housed in a lovely 19th-century building, the Hotel Murmuri is an elegant boutique that has been completely modernized while still maintaining a romantic appeal (think plush interiors and low lighting). Rooms are stylishly decorated in creams and browns, and feature full-body mirrors and floor-to-ceiling windows; some have charming balconies. Stand-out features include the chic Murmuri Restaurant and arty Marfil Bar. The property has limited amenities, however, as it only offers a small rooftop terrace and lacks a pool and fitness center (though guests do have free access to facilities at the nearby Hotel Majestic sister property). Also, rates here are higher than some nearby options, and Wi-Fi comes with a fee.
