Bottom Line

The 120-room and suite Mandarin Oriental is one of the most luxurious hotels in Barcelona, and certainly has one of the most recognizable hotel brand names in the city. It has a great location on Passeig de Gracia, and offers all the high-end amenities one would expect from the chain, including a rooftop dipping pool, a beautiful spa, and numerous restaurants (one has two Michelin stars). All-white rooms are sleek, and some have balconies, but layouts can be a bit awkward. While the service is excellent, some guests complain about street noise and there is a pesky fee for Wi-Fi.

Oyster Hotel Review

Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona


On Passeig de Gracia in the lovely Eixample district

Located on the Passeig de Gracia, the Mandarin Oriental is a great starting point for local shopping and sightseeing. The hotel is within walking distance of the modernist landmarks Casa Milà and Casa Batlló. These eye-catching buildings designed by Antoni Gaudí currently function as museums that can be explored inside and out. This district is known for a vibrant nightlife scene, with many trendy bars and clubs, especially in the gay section (which is popularly known as Gayxample). In addition, the Passeig de Gracia metro station is less than two blocks away from the hotel, which makes exploring other parts of the city easy.
