Barcelona has plenty of 5-star hotels, more than 20 and this number grows every year. Many of the 5-star hotels belong to an international chain but there are also individual hotels with high standards that are worth to stay at.

What distinguishes a 5-star hotel from other categories is the level of service and high standards in everything they do. The location tends to be centric or with spectacular views, the amenities are luxurious and they offer services than in other kinds of hotels are not the norm.

All of them have a pool, in Barcelona normally a tiny one so do not expect to compete in the Olympics in their pools, a gym and most likely a spa among other services such as a gastronomic restaurant or even one with a Michelin star.

Recommended 5-star hotels in Barcelona

A 5-star hotel in Barcelona I am sure all of them are an excellent choice but I would like to recommend you some of my favorites.

Hotel Arts: it is located in front of the sea, with amazing views of the city from every room of the hotel.

Hotel Mandarin: it has become very popular because of Restaurant Moments by Carme Ruscalleda and its location right in the highest end street in Barcelona: Passeig de Grpacia.

Hotel Miramar: it is a little jewel hidden in Montjuic mountain, if you like to be in a quiet place this is with no doubt your choice. They have an incredible swimming pool and comfy hammocks.
