Located in historic El Born at the doorway to the Barri Gòtic, this boutique hotel sits on a beautiful pedestrian street. It offers quality and comfort at an affordable price in a 19th-century private mansion turned modern hotel. Bathrooms gleam with marble, floors are stained a dark walnut, and the crisp white linens stand out in high contrast. In addition to doubles, there are several suites, some with private patios. If you like the location, consider the upgrade to a suite, as doubles are beautiful but too tight to have more than one suitcase open at a time. Try the hotel’s traditional Catalan restaurant Parellada, a destination for locals and tourists alike.
