I’m often asked about hotels in Barcelona, so I thought it was about time to share the ones I have stayed at or dream of staying at in the future. All pictures in this post are from the stunning Margot House right on Paseo de Gracia. Enjoy!

10 hotels I recommend in Barcelona
The trendy one with a roof top pool
Yurbban Trafalger is a trendy hotel with an amazing view from the rooftop pool. I always recommend hotels with a pool in summer. Nothing better than to relax by the pool after a day of wandering the city!
The classic choice with a perfect location
We have stayed at MurMuri a couple of times and loved it. It is a classic luxury hotel and even though it’s not of the trendiest design nor an interior style I would normally go for, it’s just such a nice place. The food is very good (we often come here for their daily lunch menu) and the location is perfect right on Rambla Catalunya.
For the hipsters
I have previously reviewed Casa Bonay here. It’s a one of a kind place and either you will love it or hate it. We loved it!
Stay here for the lobby (and roof top pool)
We visited The Corner Hotel in April with some friends who stayed there. They have an ultra hip lobby area with work desks, sofas, co-working spaces, a bar etc. And just for this lobby, I would chose this hotel next time we need a hotel in Barcelona. They also have a roof top pool and good location on Calle Aribau, away from the tourist crowds.
Just like home…in the heart of Barcelona
Right on Paseo de Gracia you’ll find Margot House. Or maybe you won’t find it, as it’s hidden on the first floor and there’s only a very little sign on the front door. And that’s the charm about Margot House – it’s like a little private apartment in the heart of the city.
The 9 guest rooms are nice and bright and the lobby area is stunning. It is a perfect base for exploring Barcelona. There is no bar or restaurant onsite, but that’s no problem as you’ll live right in the middle of everything. They do serve breakfast though and there are small snacks and coffee all day for hotel guests 🙂
If you like to mingle…
At Hotel Pulitzer you will find yourself surrounded by people most of the time. The roof top terrace is famous among locals for their “vermut” (afternoon drink with snacks) and their lobby is always busy with people going in and out, working on their laptops, sipping coffee etc. The restaurant is named The Greenhouse and serves delicious fresh dishes on weekdays for lunch (menu is less than 20€) in stunning green surroundings. All in all – go here if you enjoy hanging out and chatting with other travellers. The atmosphere is great!
The re-build apartment
We Boutique Hotel is cute little hotel near El Arc de Triumf. It is an antique apartment, which was re-build into a hotel some years ago. They now have six beautiful and authentic rooms. The breakfast is served in the restaurant just next door.
This is one of the places I would stay if I had gold in my backyard. Ohla is a stylish luxury hotel with an amazing roof top pool and bar.
Low cost in style
Praktik Bakery is a fantastic low cost boutique hotel. It is part of the chain Praktik Hotels, but this hotel is quite special as they have the famous Baluard Bakery inside the hotel. They serve the breakfast for hotel guests every morning and the bread is just amazing.
The location is right next to La Pedrera and Paseo de Gracia. Just perfect.
The trendy one with a spa (perfect for a winter stay!)
Yurbban Passatge Hotel & Spa is (obviously) part of the same chain as Yurbban Trafalger. They have a roof top pool and as bonus they have an indoor pool and spa! This makes it a perfect winter hotel too!
Perfect location near the popular Nømad Coffee bar.
