Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona

The 98-room Mandarin Oriental, is one of the most luxurious hotels in Barcelona. It has a great location on Passeig de Gracia, and offers high-end amenities one would expect from the reputable hotel chain, including a rooftop dipping pool, a beautiful spa, and numerous restaurants (one has a Michelin star). While the service is excellent, some guests complain about street noise.

Hotel SixtyTwo Barcelona

SixtyTwo Hotel’s rooms are sleek with bright, minimalist furniture and sexy open bathrooms that are large for Barcelona standards. Beyond the inviting design and a free wine tasting for guests every Wednesday, the hotel’s location -- in the upscale Eixample neighborhood, within walking distance of numerous attractions -- is a major draw.

Hotel Catalonia Catedral

Located near great shopping, dining and many tourist attractions, Hotel Catalonia Catedra sits on a quaint residential street in the Gothic Quarter. The hotel’s decor is similar to many others in the area — minimalist and sleek, with lots of gray and white. Better than most, though, is the rooftop pool, which is large and attractive with nice lounge seating. There’s also a tasty brasserie on-site where guests can grab a bite or enjoy a leisurely meal.

Ohla Hotel

The stylish and luxurious Ohla Hotel is centrally located in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. This boutique option offers 74 modern rooms with high-tech amenities and free Wi-Fi. One stand-out feature here is sexy stall showers that are located right in the middle of the rooms. The hotel has a chic rooftop pool and lounge and Michelin-starred Sauc Restaurant. This is the place for an upscale romantic getaway, and an eco-friendly one at that: Ohla Hotel contains solar panels, LEDs and natural toiletries.

Hotel Villa Emilia

The Hotel Villa Emilia is a chic boutique option close to the Passeig de Gracia and the metro. Rooms are cozy, clean, inviting, and large. Floor-to-ceiling windows actually open fully, maximizing fresh air in the room. The common areas of the hotel -- such as the tasty Zinc restaurant and the rooftop -- maintain this stylish vibe. With free Wi-Fi and a superb central location, the 53-room Villa Emilia is a solid pick.

Gran Hotel La Florida

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 getaway far from the frenzy of Barcelona’s crowds. Relax in the beautiful indoor/outdoor pool or the tranquil Zen Zone Spa. Contemporary guest rooms have great views of either the city or the Pyrenees Mountains. Apart from an adjacent amusement park, there is not much in the immediate vicinity, so those who seek convenient sightseeing should consider a hotel in the city center.

Casa Fuster Hotel

The 105-room Casa Fuster Hotel is an upscale historic boutique surrounded by high-end shopping and Modernist architecture. Elegant rooms have pastel-colored walls, oversized headboards, and great amenities. Some even have small in-room saunas, balconies and hydro-massage showers. Quarters can be tight. Nonetheless, the hotel offers great features including a Mediterranean restaurant, a beautiful rooftop deck, and Café Vienes -- a favorite among artists, intellectuals and locals.

Abac Barcelona

Abac Barcelona is an exclusive, 15-room luxury boutique hotel that embodies contemporary style at its best. Rooms are avant garde, from the clean, white and beige decor, to the modern under-lighting, from the remote-controlled blinds, to the Bang & Olufsen sound system. And the hotel’s amazing spa with Turkish baths shouldn’t be missed, nor should the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant.

The Mirror Barcelona

The Mirror Barcelona is a boutique hotel with a unique design, white-on-white decor, mirrors galore and a few stylish amenities, including a wonderful restaurant and rooftop pool. This upscale boutique sets the bar for Barcelona chic. Sleek rooms are clean and feature all-white furnishings with a couple of beige accents, huge murals, large flat-screen TVs and comfortable beds.

Hotel Murmuri

Hotel Murmuri is an elegant boutique that has been completely modernized -- and yet maintains a romantic feel. Rooms are stylishly decorated in creams and browns, and feature full-body mirrors and floor-to-ceiling windows. Stand-out features include the chic Murmuri Restaurant and artsy Marfil Bar. Even though the hotel only has a small rooftop terrace and limited pool and fitness center; guests do have free access to facilities at the nearby Majestic Hotel, a sister property.
