Hotel Bagués

$$$ | La Rambla 105, 08002, Spain

The luxury of the Eixample has worked its way down to La Rambla, as this boutique gem (formerly the shop and atelier of the well-known Art Nouveau jeweler of the same name) bears ample witness. The interior is all textured concrete, hammered metal, frosted glass, recessed lighting—modern chic, but remarkably comfortable. The meeting room on the first floor houses the Bagués-Masriera museum collection of Art Nouveau jewelry and design. Rooms have leather love seats, dark wood paneling and headboards, hardwood floors, huge flat-screen TVs, and iPod docks. The bathrooms have top-tier amenities, bud vases, and big picture-frame mirrors. The Bagués is an exclusive (and pricey) retreat in an unexpected setting.

Pros

  • Steps from the opera house
  • View of the cathedral and port from the rooftop terrace
  • Lovely Moderniste design

Cons

  • Rooms a bit small for the price
  • Hectic location
  • Street-facing rooms can be noisy
