W Barcelona

The W Barcelona stands alone…literally. All the design flair you expect of the W brand sits at the end of Barcelona’s main beach. Whichever way you look there’s a view. Something of a new Barcelona icon.

Hotel Arts Barcelona

Hotel Arts is like a bookend to Barcelona’s main beach, with the W at the other end. Arts is a long way from being the cheapest accommodation in town, but for foodies the price may be worth it – two-Michelin-star Enoteca Paco Pérez is in the building – and the service and views across the Med can’t really be matched.

Yet another design hotel – in a city full of them – Murmuri stands out for its excellent location and, well…design. Love It There* likes the fact there are only 53 rooms, though the basic ones are fairly compact. But we really love the location on the charming Rambla de Catalunya, and it’s pretty good value in Barcelona terms too.

Rambla de Catalunya, 104
