Best Hotels in Barcelona


When travelling to the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona, there’s only one place you’ll want to be; the Passeig de Gràcia. Stretching three miles through the centre of the city, it’s the only shopping and business destination that really matters. Strewn with luxury brands such as Miu Miu, Stella McCartney and Prada it has everything you need (including the odd peppering of tapas bars of course).

But one of the more notable buildings nestled amongst Chanel and Pronovias is the five-star Hotel Majestic. Since undergoing a 30 million euro renovation last year, the hotel commands the wow-factor due to its glistening marble floors, pristine cream furnishings and a professional calm you can only expect from a luxury hotel. With bags dropped and check-in hours away we decided to make the most of the warm summers day and head up to La Dolce Vitae rooftop pool (I know, how very SATC) to enjoy the panoramic views of the city below. Sophisticated cream sofas, glass tables, and undercover canopies line the outskirts of the pool, where the chic and polished gesture over their Martini’s and move seductively to the chilled-out house music that sounds overhead.
