Barcelona bliss

Occupying a prime location on the Passeig de Gracia, the Hotel Condes de Barcelona is at the heart of the city’s Modernist landscape

Facing the famous Gaudi building La Pedrera, the Hotel Condes de Barcelona is uniquely built within two facing Modernist mansions. The beautiful 19th century buildings have been carefully restored to offer maximum comfort and style, affording an impressively regal residence on one of the city’s most important business and shopping areas.

A four star establishment, the Condes de Barcelona offers exquisite, personalised service in keeping with its warm atmosphere and avant-garde gastronomy.

Its 235 spacious, light bedrooms are designed to ensure the utmost wellbeing of guests. Modern interior design contrasts with the classicism of the 19th century buildings, and all rooms offer views of some of Barcelona’s most famous architecture or the hotel’s peaceful garden courtyard. The executive bedrooms and suites, furbished in dark wood and chocolate fabrics, feature a balcony or private terrace and a grander space for business or relaxation.

The hotel has nine meeting rooms of various capacities, fully equipped for all kinds of event, making this a fitting and prestigious venue for professional and social gatherings. In the hands of renowned chef Martín Berasategui, it has become a celebrated gastronomic destination: his work recently saw the elegant Lasarte restaurant awarded its second star in the Michelin Guide, and he also oversees the hotel’s catering and the informal bistro Loidi.

A final big attraction at the hotel is the spectacular Alaire rooftop terrace-bar, which offers spectacular views of the city and has become one of the hottest bars in town for an evening drink or informal dining. Both buildings’ terraces feature outdoor pools, and a more exclusive rooftop space is available on the second building for private cocktails and parties.
