10 Boutique & Design Hotels in Barcelona

Hotel Chic & Basic

Chic Basic Hotel El Born

Hotel Chic & Basic Born is located in the trendy neighborhood of El Born, a popular area to stay. Less than 100 meters away is the Parc de la Ciutadella and you are right by the beach.

Hotel Casa Bonay

Hotel Casa Bonay Barcelona

Hotel Casa Bonay in the Eixample neighborhood is more of a concept than a hotel. Everything here, from the furniture to the staff’s clothing, is made by local designers. The lounge is a great place to start – or end – your day, but the rooftop terrace is also super. The sleek designer rooms are on the small side, but some have a small terrace. The hotel includes a good coffee bar and a restaurant.

Hotel Brummell

Hotel Brummell Barcelona

The rooftop pool is on the small side, but the rest of the hotel and the super-friendly staff certainly make up for that.

Roca by numa

Roca Hotel Barcelona

Roca in Eixample is a beautiful hotel for lovers of retro and vintage. Take for example the handmade mosaic floor in the lounge and the beautiful tile work in the central hall, the vintage lighting, and the old-fashioned espresso machine and retro refrigerator in the lounge.

Each room is decorated differently. At the back of the accommodation, you can relax on the terrace after a day in the busy city. Breakfast is served in the little bar across the street, where locals also come to drink their cortado or café con leche in the morning. Roca is also relatively inexpensive and a very affordable option. There is no reception and staff, everything goes digital!
