Advantages of staying in luxury hotels 
A luxury five star hotel still holds many advantages over other hotels and apartment rentals. The five star rating system for hotels in Europe means that five star hotels are required to offers specific features and services which other hotels do not offer. In general five star hotels offer a high level of luxury with bigger rooms, excellent food, 24-hour room service and room ameneties like bigger size flat-screen TV’s, DVD players, Ipad chargers, Jacuzzi bath tubs and elegant bathrooms. And of course you are asked to pay more for this level of luxury and attention, but it is often worth it to make your stay in Barcelona a success.

Best location
The location is often exclusive and convenient for Barcelona’s best restaurants, shops and sights. Most 5 star hotels have a very central on top shopping streets with the exception of a couple perch on Barcelona’s two city hills, which have additional luxury in the form of magnificent city views. The 5 star hotels outside the downtown area have free shuttle bus services.

Best rooms and suites 
5 star hotels have amazing rooms in general with space, classier furnishings and more importantly more comfortable beds with expensive mattresses and pillows even with a pillow menu sometimes. A good night’s sleep is essential to a nice stay in Barcelona. A top hotel will not usually have backpackers and youngsters making a lot of noise at night so a good night’s sleep is assured. Another consideration at a five star hotel is that if anything in the room need fixing or replacing, then this will done immediately. Important features like ventilation and heating often work better at top hotels too, which is essential for a good night’s sleep.

Best food
Most 5 star hotels have excellent restaurants which are managed by top Spanish chefs who are often Michelin starred. There are usually several eating choices in the luxury hotels but always a flagship restaurant often with celebrity chef. And you will have a better chance of getting a table for dinner as a guest of the hotel. The food at five star hotels is always top notch with fresh seasonal ingredients, creative recipes and combinations that offers plenty of choices all day long. The overall quality of the food at a 5 star hotel is higher for breakfast and room service too, which is worth bearing in mind. An excellent breakfast or lunch might keep you going until dinner bearing in mind that dinner is eaten later in Spain from 8.30 onwards.

Best service 
Or should we say best pampering. 5 star hotels also can be on for a high level of personal attention and attention to detail when making sure guests are pampered. The staff are trained to observe the guests and make sure they are happy often by being proactive. Often it is tiny details that can make all the difference for luxury stays like friendly and attentive staff, a concierge service for reservations at top restaurants, frequent room cleaning services and up to date conveniences in the room like bigger flatscreen TV’s, smart TV’s, Ipads, Nespresso coffee machine and complimentary gifts to suit your occasion.

Best facilities
Top 5 star hotels will often have a good quality spa with heated pools and wellness treatments. Some have electric cars or bikes, transfer services and so on.
