Hotel Casa Fuster Gran Lujo Monumento

Passeig de Gràcia 132, Barcelona, Catalonia, 08008, Spain

This hotel offers one of two chances (the other is the Hotel España) to stay in an art nouveau building designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, architect of the sumptuous Palau de la Música Catalana. This was his last project, built in 1908 at the bottom edge of the village of Gràcia; the lobby, with its Gaudí-designed chairs, door handles, and fixtures, its trencadís (polychrome broken-tile mosaic) floors, marble and stone pillars, vaulted ceilings, and art nouveau–inspired lamps, is Moderniste to the core. The room decor is classical, with tufted headboards, striped linens, and tall French windows (which don't open); bathrooms have towel warmers, Loewe toiletries, and big picture-frame mirrors. The hotel's Café Vienés (jazz on Thursday evening) was a historic meeting place for Barcelona's movers and shakers in the early 20th century.
