    The Hotel Majestic one looks nothing like I remember it! I miss Barcelona – it has so much to see and do beyond the touristy bits. Love the food. And the best? The people!

  2. Sandra Roig says:

    That’s true, there is so much to see and do aside from the tourist attractions, and the people certainly make the experience one that brings people back to the city time and time again!

  3. Katie says:

    I am embarrassed to say I have never been! This makes me want to go so badly! Okay, it’s officially on the list! Will definitely have to make time to hit up a few of these!

    I find Hotel 1898 to have the best roof top in barcelona ! Day time on the lounges and pool, whilst at night it turns in a sedutive sexy terrace with cocktails to die for.

  5. I was lucky enough to live in Barcelona for a year. My apartment was in Eixample near the Axel Hotel, which although hasn’t made this list, has a gorgeous roof top bar, complete with swimming pool and DJ during the summer.
