The lobby of this postmodern architectural stunner tells you what to expect throughout: perfect comfort, cutting-edge design, and meticulous attention to every detail. The minimalist decor is done in soothing tones of grey, purple and orange; there's a gas fireplace in the lounge, and nooks for intimate conversation. Superior doubles have long private decks; suites have modern four-poster beds, antique wooden desks, and armchairs with reading lamps. Rooms on the upper floors, and the huge rooftop terrace, overlook Gaudí's Casa Milá. The restaurant, Roca Moo, serves modern cuisine orchestrated by the Roca brothers—Joan, Josep, and Jordi—who achieved international prestige with their Celler de Can Roca near Girona.

We stayed 2 nights in August, 2005. You'll love this hotel if you appreciate sleek, contemporary surroundings. Our room was spacious and quiet. The staff was polite and helpful. The rooftop pool deck offers beautiful views of the surrounding neighborhood. One glitch... with so many electronic controls in the room, we couldn't figure out how to turn the bedside lamp on. Eventually we realized there was a problem. We called the desk and a maintenance
man was sent immediately. Problem resolved.
