Review Summary


  • Striking historic Modernist building
  • Blocks from upscale shopping and several top attractions
  • Elegant rooms with flat-screen TVs, surround sound systems, and minibars
  • Clean bathrooms with heated towel racks and Loewe toiletries
  • Gorgeous (but small) rooftop pool and deck with panoramic views
  • Beautiful, historic Café Vienes and a Mediterranean restaurant
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Extensive, well-equipped meeting space


  • 25-minute walk to the Gothic Quarter (but easy access to metro)
  • Some rooms are a little small
  • King-size beds are two beds pushed together

Bottom Line

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.
