There are a lot of reasons to visit Barcelona, but one of the best is to be dazzled by the modernist architecture. Antoni Gaudi's basilica, La Sagrada Familia, is the most famous example, but Gaudi was merely the biggest star of the Catalan art nouveau movement that launched Barcelona as a style capital. More than a century later, the design quotient remains high. If you want to stay in a hotel that lives up to the city's lofty visual standards, you'll find that good design comes at many budget levels.
