    I live in Barcelona and I think you really missed Hotel Arts and Mandarin Oriental more than other ones…

  2. Jolanda says:

    I definitly think Ritz Carlton Hotel Arts should be in this list. I may not be hip & trendy, but ‘ good old fashioned quality is timeless!

  3. Michelle Lozneanu says:

    I live in Barcelona and I think you missed 2 of the best Hotels in the city: Mandarin Oriental and Casa Fuster, both in Paseo de Gracia. I wouldn’t condiser the W a luxury Hotel, and the location is far away from downtown. Thank you.

  4. Hey y’all!
    I’m thinking about to make a reservation for one good hotel in Barcelona, I will choose one of those.
    I was in Hotel Omm three months ago, as you said in your post they have a good restaurant. In addition, as you can see in the picture they have also a really good spa. After the spa I stricly recommend to drink a tea on the rooftop with the amazing views!
