For an all-out shopping splurge in the Catalan capital, the location of Barcelona’s very first ‘design hotel’ is totally on-point; just off the Passeig de Gràcia and within easy reach of Avinguda Diagonal – the much-lauded five-kilometre shopping stretch that is home to flagship stores from most of the planet’s high-end designers.
But it’s not all about the shopping at this five-star city slicker. Beneath its unusual limestone façade is a feast of avant-garde design, most apparent in the 91 guest rooms. Matched with chic-as-you-like bathrooms, each is styled as a super-sleek living space with oak parquet flooring, bold splashes of colour, modish fixtures and fittings, and all the luxuries and gadgetry you could desire.
Days can be spent lounging and people-watching by the rooftop terrace pool that overlooks Gaudi’s Casa Milà, sampling adventurous Catalan fare at the award-winning Michelin-starred restaurant, and kicking back with potent cocktails in the cool-looking lobby bar. Equally alluring is the Oriental-styled spa with its indoor pool and excellent pampering menu. The on-site nightclub will have you getting your groove on right into the early hours.
Each of the 91 rooms, which includes eight suites, are styled as super-sleek living spaces with oak parquet flooring, designer-led furnishings, bold splashes of colour, hand-woven rugs, and modish fixtures and fittings. Bathrooms are equally chic and kitted out with a bathtub and shower, complimentary toiletries, bathrobes and slippers. The Standard room and the larger Superior room both have comfortable king-size beds or two twin beds. The more spacious Junior suite has a canopy bed and a separate lounge area. All accommodation overlooks either the inner courtyard or Passeig de Gràcia.
Managed by Barcelona’s esteemed El Celler de Can Roca, signature restaurant Roca Moo is a Michelin-star hangout that takes a modern twist on Catalan cooking. Choose from the à la carte menu, or opt for the more adventurous tasting menus with matching wines. Less formal is the lobby-based Roca Bar – an all-day spot with comfortable sofas and a fireplace where you can enjoy speciality teas, potent cocktails, snacks, and casual fare. There is also an on-site nightclub with a resident DJ on Fridays from 10pm to 4am, and a mix-up of singers, saxophones, percussion and DJ beats that kicks off after midnight on Saturdays.
For Zen-like calm, Spaciomm is an Oriental-styled pampering haven with an indoor pool, hamman, water circuit, pilates and gravitation spaces, treatment cabins and concept hairdressing salon. Each of the signature Rituals of the World treatments are wonderfully named; choose from Diamond Magnetic by Natura Bissé, Desert Moon Ritual, Thousand and One Nights and more. The spa opens from 10am to 9.30pm from Monday to Saturday, and from 10am to 6pm on Sunday. Personal training is available on request.
Just off the Passeig de Gràcia and a five-minute stroll from Gaudí’s Casa Milà, you’ll be close to Avinguda Diagonal – Barcelona’s famous five-kilometre shopping stretch that is home to most of the world’s high-end designer boutiques. You’ll also be within a 15-minute walk from Plaza de Catalunya and Las Ramblas, and just 100 years from Diagonal Metro Station. City must-dos include riding the hop-on-hop-off Bus Turistic for unrivalled sightseeing, chilling out on a mosaic bench at Parc Güell, browsing the quirky shops in the Gothic Quarter, and fuelling your passion for FC Barcelona at the spectacular Camp Nou.
How to Get There
I would highly recommend this hotel, it is very trendy but still has that comfort feeling. Dinner at Mr Porter is a must too, the food is brilliant, we loved every dish we tried and all of the staff are most welcoming and super friendly. Every aspect of the hotel is beautiful and shows complete attention to detail, from the spa to the roof terrace!
What a lovely warm welcome we received at the Sir Victor Hotel. The young lady behind the front desk was so welcoming and gave us a map to help find our way around. The room was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. The location of the hotel was very central and we walked everywhere. Some lovely local restaurants were also nearby. The spa was out of use but the lovely receptionist organised us to use a nearby hotels.
Rooftop bar cocktails were amazing, staff not so much but the overall experience from the hotel definitely deserves 5 stars.
Great hotel! Location, service, cleanliness, food and staff are all great! Would come back every time when in Barcelona.
Great for kids with games, pool table and roof top pool available and games can be brought up to the room.
In addition for the very good restaurants in the hotel there are lots of great restaurants in the neighborhood.
