Fodor's Review

At the edge of the Gothic Quarter, very near the Barcelona cathedral, this fashionable midtown hotel is popular with business and pleasure travelers alike. Rooms are soothingly done in neutral tones; furnishings are generic-modern and comfortable. The restaurant, Avalon, is known for creative cuisine in an elegant, minimalist setting; the roof terrace and top-floor pool offer a unique perch over the city's 2,000-year-old Roman and Gothic central nucleus. The higher the better is the rule here, as street level can be noisy, soundproofing or not.
