Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona

Courtesy Mandarin Oriental
Dreta de l'Eixample

Housed in a former bank, the Mandarin Oriental enjoys a prime location on Passeig de Gràcia, the city’s most famous and exclusive shopping avenue. The building cuts a stately figure on the busy thoroughfare, but the surprise lies inside where interiors by Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola are flooded with natural light thanks to a lush inner courtyard. Many guest rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and patios, and the rooftop terrace with an infinity edge swimming pool offers a bird’s eye view of Gaudi’s Casa Batlló, with its tiled roof inspired by the spine of a dragon. The hotel has a wide range of places to drink and dine, from the Michelin two-star Moments to the Banker’s Bar, where original bank safes are incorporated into the design. (Rooms, from $420)
