Famed hotelier Ian Schrager has an eye for on-trend cities and locations, and the newly-built Barcelona Edition hits both those nails on the head. Located right next to the fab Santa Caterina market, Edition is smack-bang in the middle of the Barcelona action.
With 100 rooms (which is at the edge of what I’d consider a boutique hotel) you get that feel that you’re more than a mere number here.
Rooms start at 24 sq m (258 sq ft), and are finished in neutral tones. You also get a Nespresso machine, and all the tech gadgetry you’d expect, including free Internet. Our pick would be the rooms with the Santa Caterina view, though the extra charge may be a bit much. Edition is hardly a budget option, though the location is hard to beat, and there are few new builds in this part of town.
Also, there’s a terrific rooftop space with a small plunge pool, though the bar here is open to the public.
