Expert Review

This trendy hotel is just outside the city center and is a quick ride on the Glorias metro or the tram, which passes in front of the hotel. There are just over 200 rooms in the hotel with a fresh minimal and understated design: platform beds in the middle of rooms and sleek Parsons tables facing floor-to-ceiling windows. Most rooms are standard, with amenities like satellite TV, WiFi internet access, blackout blinds that ensure a good night’s sleep, and all-glass bathrooms. Superior rooms have balconies, junior suites have a separate lounge, and suites have excellent views of the Agbar Tower, designed by architect Jean Nouvel. The rooftop deck has a small pool, an excellent solarium, and restaurant – the perfect spot to spend the afternoon recovering from the morning’s sight-seeing.
