Sant Agustí

Pl. Sant Agustí 3, Barcelona, Catalonia, 08001, Spain

In a leafy square just off La Rambla, the Sant Agustí bills itself as the oldest billet in Barcelona—built in the 1720s for the library of the adjacent convent and reborn as a hotel in 1840. The lobby is a pleasant space, with sculpted ceilings, Art Deco chandeliers, brick and stone arches of the original building, a big picture window looking out on the leafy Plaça Sant Agustí. There are four floors of guest rooms; the rooms on 4F are lofts, with skylights and steeply angled exposed roof beams, painted black. Not for basketball players. Rooms in general are small but pleasantly appointed, with sunny blond wood, cream-white bedspreads and hardwood floors; some rooms have an additional sofa bed.
