This illustrious hotel exudes old-world grace and charm along with a sense of history—which it has aplenty. Past luminaries who have trod the halls of this elegant white elephant of a hotel include Orson Welles, Ava Gardner, Ernest Hemingway, Lauren Bacall, Federico García Lorca, Albert Einstein, and Alfonso XIII, great-grandfather of Spain's King Felipe VI. Rooms include spacious and stylishly modern standard rooms, larger "Superior" rooms, junior suites, and a very grand, top-floor Imperial Suite. Squarely in the middle of El Ensanche, the Carlton is equidistant from the Casco Viejo and Abandoibarra area.
