Fodor's Review

Overlooking La Rambla, this imposing mansion, once the headquarters of the Compañiá General de Tabacos de Filipinas, couldn't be better located—especially with the Liceu just around the corner, for opera fans. Named for the fateful year when Spain was stripped of its final colonial outposts (the Philippines among them), the hotel's elegance evokes those bygone imperial days. The lobby spaces are spectacular, with marble barrel vaults and coffered ceilings, stained glass and subdued lighting, sink-in comfortable leather armchairs and sofas. Rooms have free Wi-Fi, hardwood floors, and high ceilings. The huge roof deck, with bar and heated pool, affords wonderful 360-degree views of Montjuïc, the Mediterranean, and the Barrí Gòtic.
