The rooftop bar at night – all lit up.

The bedroom with mini bar for making cocktails and designer light fittings.

The hotel lobby with mind boggling artwork behind the check-in desk and hotel shop selling locally made pieces.

The in-house steak restaurant Mr Porter, also where a huge fresh buffet breakfast is served daily.

Soaking in the warm indoor spa pool.

Up on the sunny rooftop taking in the views over to Gaudi’s Casa Milà.

Unique exterior design making all balconies very private.

Taking in the vibes at the rooftop pool.

Highs & Lows

  • The rooptop cocktail bar is very special. With plunge pool and sweeping views of the urban skyline, which includes La Sagrada Familia in the distance, and just a few doors down in Gaudi’s masterpiece Casa Mila. The menu is tapas style with dishes that focuses on fresh, raw, marinated and grilled ingredients. They regularly have local DJs play up on the rooftop. The vibes are fun whether you’re there for a swim or a late-night vermouth.
