Fodor's Review

A carpeted ramp leading from the elegant Passeig de Gràcia (flanked by Tiffany and Brioni boutiques) lends this hotel the air of a privileged—and pricey—inner sanctum. The public spaces have Asian touches that reference the Mandarin Oriental group's Eastern origins; the very air is perfumed. Standard guest rooms are light and airy, done in ivory with clean, minimalist lines, with hardwood plank floors and accent carpeting. Extra touches include iPod docks and spare cables for your laptop, but no coffeemaker. Suites in the new wing, opened in 2014, have huge round bathtubs and towel warmers; guests here have access to a dedicated concierge service. The spectacular "Mimosa" interior garden is the perfect venue for a drink or a light meal. There's a plunge pool on the rooftop terrace and another, larger pool in the spa, which, with its eight ultraluxurious treatment cabins, is really the jewel in the crown here: there's even a separate elevator directly to it, so guests can come and go in their robes. The hotel's gourmet restaurant, Moments, is under the direction of superstar chef Carme Ruscalleda.
