Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Granados 83

Carrer Enric Granados 83, Barcelona, Catalonia, 08008, Spain

Designed in the style of a New York City loft and seated on a tree-shaded street in the heart of the Eixample, this hotel blends exposed brick, steel, and glass with Greek and Italian marble and Indonesian tamarind wood to achieve downtown cool. Museum-quality pieces of Buddhist and Hindu art from the owner's private collection, mostly dating back to the 11th and 12th centuries, add a sense of Zen tranquility. Rooms have a certain masculine aesthetic, with leather sofas and headboards, exposed brick walls, chrome fixtures, hardwood plank floors, and dark bedding. Interior-facing rooms have private balconies. The luxurious duplexes have private terraces and semiprivate pools. The first-rate Mediterranean restaurant and the rooftop solarium, with views over the center of Barcelona, add the final pampering touches.
