You’ll find industrial chic with a touch of cosmopolitan glamour at this upscale hotel in the heart of Barcelona. Set just minutes from the grand Plaça Catalunya and the world-famous Las Ramblas, this urban getaway showcases utilitarian design, with aged woods, gleaming leather, welded metals, and pendant lighting.
Adding to its ever-growing boutique portfolio, Spanish luxury hotel group H10 opened this 85-room boutique gem in 2014. Housed in a renovated historical building and styled by highly-acclaimed interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán, the guest rooms here tempt with monochrome décor, statement beds, lovely bathrooms and a heady dose of state-of-the-art extras.
Days here can be spent going gaga for Gaudi, cruising the designer-dense streets for high-end fashion and working your way around the city’s rather wonderful art museums. Post-sightseeing, head back to the hotel to enjoy a quick workout in the mini gym, take a dip in the rooftop pool (weather permitting), and sample a few of the potent cocktails at any one of the hotel’s three chic bars.
Each of the 85 state-of-the-art rooms assures contemporary, monochrome décor. The stylish Rambla Double rooms feature plush beds dressed with crisp white linens, charming pendant lighting and gleaming wooden flooring. Upgrade to a Superior Double room to enjoy a lovely furnished terrace.
Kick-start your day with all sorts of freshly cooked international staples and Catalan-themed specialties at The Kitchen Restaurant – a trendy dining space with funky pendant lighting. There’s also Edén Bar for drinks and light fare, as well as Edén Terrace for poolside cocktails. After hours, head to Forbidden Sunsets for live music and DJs (Thursday and Friday nights), a wonderfully grown-up drinks list and a menu that’s inspired by the Garden of Eden’s famous forbidden fruits. Room service is also available.
Just minutes from Plaça Catalunya and the world-famous Las Ramblas, you’ll find most of Barcelona’s star attractions practically on your doorstep. Must-dos include riding the hop-on-hop-off Bus Turistic for unbeatable sightseeing, hitting the Eixample neighborhood for Gaudi masterpieces, such as La Pedrera, Casa Batllo and Sagrada Família, and taking time to chill out at the mosaic-clad Parc Güell. You’ll also enjoy marveling at the quirky-looking Casa Golferichs, shopping your heart out in the Gothic Quarter, gorging on incredible artworks at the Picasso Museum and fueling your passion for FC Barcelona at Camp Nou.
How to Get There
The hotel was the perfect location, with great staff and a nice bar/pool area to take a break from the action. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again when we return.

Wow, wow, wow!!!! This place is just terrific. It's clean, perfect location, a great staff, comfy beds, very up-to-date bathrooms and much more. We got breakfast free and it was delicious, there's a lot to choose from to eat. From the moment you walk into the hotel, you are treated so special. We also had a front room facing the street, the room was quiet at night. We arrived the day of the scheduled protest and had a front line view to it. We had to walk three blocks to get there b/c the streets were closed. What an experience!!! This place is highly recommended.
