These are our top hotel recommendations for where to stay in Barcelona in 2015. A new hotel that is getting good review is Hotel Denit. It's popular for being modern, fun, funky, soundproofed and the central location near Plaza Catalunya. For location and luxury we also really like the all new hi-tech chic and modern design Hotel Room Mate Pau located just a few steps from Plaza Catalunya, Barcelona's central square.
The Mirror Barcelona is also very central and luxurious in decor and location just 350 metres from equally elegant Passeig de Gracia boulevard, The Mirror Barcelona has a small outdoor pool and terrace and a stylish seafood restaurant managed by Michelin starred chef, Paco Pérez. The Mirror is also close to popular tapas restaurant Cervesaria Catalana.
Another super central and well reviewed hotel is the 4 star Hotel Catalonia Plaza Cataluña, which is on a side street, but just 50m from Plaza Catalunya which is Barcelona's central square, so it's both close to the old city and the newer part of Barcelona. A lovely pool and garden terrace and modern clean decor make it a quiet haven to come back after a day of sightseeing.
Also very central is the little modern gem called hotel Catalonia Square which gets very high hotel reviews for clean rooms, service and friendly staff. It has an outdoor pool, fitness centre and a location just 100 metres from Plaça Catalunya and offers free Wi-Fi.

Also a bit off centre but very popular is the new 4 star K+K Picasso hotel which has a very nice and quiet location opposite Barcelona's nicest park, the Cuitadella park and the K+K Picasso only a few steps from charming El Born area in the old mediavel old city of Barcelona where you can find the Picasso museum. And it has a rooftop pool.
Another new Barcelona hotel with excellent reviews and great location is the Olivia Balmes hotel near shopping street Passeig de Gracia where you can find two of Barcelona's most famous tourist attractions by Gaudi namely the houses Casa Batllo and Casa Mila. The Olivia Balmes hotel has big modern rooms with an open plan bathroom. Olivia Balmes is very central and has a pool on the roof.
A tiny but popular boutique in Barcelona for 2014 is the very charming hotel Circa 1905 which is exquisite. Only 9 rooms on the top floor of a classic modernist building in Eixample but great attention to detail. > See also our Top 10 Barcelona Boutique hotel guide.
The former Ritz hotel, now El Palace Hotel on Gran Via, was first opened in 1919 and totally refurbished in 2009. The Palace has been the first choice of countless celebrity guests and royalty throughout the decades. Salvador Dalí once took a lifesize stuffed white horse to the Royal suite of the Ritz as a gift for his wife Gala Dali.

Hotel Alma is a 5-star boutique hotel and a top 5 Barcelona visitors hotel choice earned by a central upscale location just by the elegant Passeig de Gracia.
