Set in a handsome 19th-century building that once housed the Banco Hispano, this hotel is convenient for exploring Barcelona’s waterfront as well as the old city. Right behind the historic post office building, it’s less than a 5-minute walk from the Moll de la Fusta and just a few hundred yards from the Museu Picasso. Perhaps because it’s a former bank building, this lodging has a grander lobby than many old city hotels, especially those in Born. Rooms are rather less spacious than the lobby, though just as tastefully appointed. Triple rooms with a sleeper couch are available.
