Hotel in the Gothic Quarter

The Serras

Cultural overload got you overwhelmed? There’s a cure for that. Head to The Serras hotel in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter and stare at the sea from the rooftop terrace or your private balcony. There, your head is clear again. Now venture downstairs to the hotel’s “Informal” restaurant by Marc Gascons—which boasts a Michelin star in the center of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter—and indulge in traditional Catalan and Mediterranean cuisine.

Hotel in the Eixample district

Claris Hotel and Spa

Behind an 1892 façade amid the Art Nouveau buildings of the Eixample district, Claris Hotel and Spa boasts one of Spain’s largest private collections of Egyptian art. For something a little more now, there’s a handful of contemporary art galleries just a short walk away—including Untitled BCN, Galeria Joan Gaspar, and the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art.
