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
February, off season, is a wonderful time to visit Barcelona especially if the weather stays nice which it did for us. It's even better if you find a good hotel, centrally located with excellent amenities. Fortunately you now know of one!
Other than the lift bring painfully slow to arrive on the fourth floor it is difficult to find fault with this hotel. Our room (405) overlooked Last Ramblas and had the best hotel show we have ever encountered. The breakfasts were good (Cava! Yes!) The cocktails were good and the staff pleasant.
Amazing stay at the hotel! Super comfortable location, can walk almost to everything. The interior design to fall in love with...cozy and stylish. the staff is helpful nice and friendly. Good breakfasts, nice choice, incl “ala card”.
Definitely will come back.
We actually booked a nearby hotel, the H10 Plaza Catalunya, but there was a problem there with our room, so we were taken ( accompanied by a very friendly guy, but we did not get his name ) to the Metropolitan and we were presently surprised at the high standard of everything at the Hotel, they simply could not do enough for us and we were even given a complimentary drink for our inconvenience. The room was great, the bed was so comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. When we return to Barcelona, that's where we shall stay. I can recommend this lovely hotel.
Fantastic Staff and breakfast. The location location location. Convenient to ALL the wonderful sites. The roof top bar is Fabulous, don't miss it. The price of the room very good. Head for the beach. The board walk a great place to stroll and good restaurants.
