Majestic Hotel & Spa
The Majestic Barcelona is a truly historic hotel, located in the heart of the elegant Paseo de Gracia, which in its heyday played host to Ernest Hemingway and Antonio Machado. Following a five-year renovation carried out by the interior designer Antonio Obrador, the hotel has once again taken its place among the iconic landmarks of this great little city. Since opening in 1918, this hotel has been owned by the Soldevila-Casals family and has played an active role in Barcelona’s architecture, society, and lifestyle for the last 100 years. Located in a French neoclassical building on the Paseo de Gracia, its spectacular views of city landmarks, such as the Sagrada Familia and La Casa Batlló, are famous.
Its broad-ranging cuisine, presided over by Catalan chef Nandu Jubany, holder of one Michelin star, is a perfect mix of local and market Mediterranean cuisine, traditional Catalan cooking and international twists, with classic and contemporary options where the emphasis, above all, is on class and distinction. Its breakfast has been recognized by the prestigious Prix Villégiature as the best breakfast in Europe, 2018. In 2019, Prix Villégiature recognized the hotel once again, naming its recently renovated rooftop terrace, La Dolce Vitae, with its panoramic views of the city as the best hotel terrace in Europe. Likewise, the prestigious association of luxury hotels to which the Majestic has belonged since December 2014, The Leading Hotels of the World, has recognized it with the “Remarkably Uncommon” award at its annual members meeting in 2018. The Majestic Hotel & Spa Barcelona also has the largest suite in the city, the Royal Penthouse, a 467-square meter penthouse suite with two panoramic terraces, a personal butler, and a chauffeur.
