The Mandarin Oriental Barcelona offers luxurious accommodations to those visiting the city and this hotel has easily become the most sought-after destination over the years. There are only 98 guest rooms and suites at this fabulous hotel and each one has been furnished and designed by Patricia Urquiola, who is a leading designer in Spain. Every room offers stunning views of either the lush interior garden or Passeig de Gracia, and most guests can enjoy those views from their balcony or terrace.
Guests can spend their time out in the Mimosa Garden or up on the rooftop, as they stare out at the panoramic views of the city. The swimming pool is also up on the roof, and many guests cannot resist taking a dip or doing a few laps when they are up there. Those who want to wander around the city will love the shopping that can be done over on Passeig de Gracia. However, it is all the details within Gaudi’s architectural masterpieces that will capture everyone’s attention the most.
Blanc is the perfect spot for afternoon tea, while Banker’s Bar is the best place for guests to grab a cocktail. The best restaurant at the hotel though is Moments, and the chef there just happens to be the son of the infamous Chef Carme Ruscalleda.

Highlights & Reviews
- Right on the celebrated Passeig de Gràcia, the Mandarin Oriental is ideally situated for keen shoppers (with deep pockets) and fans of Gaudí’s architecture.
- With opulence and chic at its very core, and apparent from the moment you cross the raised walkway into the lobby, this is not a hotel for the faint-hearted, but neither is it stuffy. The outdoor Mimosa restaurant has waiting staff in trilby hats and Converse trainers, for example, and the wonderfully peaceful basement spa displays the latest in new-age thinking.
- As you’d expect in a hotel of this calibre, the polite but not obsequious staff know exactly what they’re doing, and show a good knowledge of the city for those that need advice. Guests can relax in the lovely Mimosa garden area on the first floor, or up on the rooftop, with its panoramic views, where they can work up an appetite in the pool before relaxing over a light lunch.
- It’s hard to find fault with the eating and drinking options, from the Bankers’ Bar, reminiscent of a gentlemen’s club in décor but with a thoroughly modern approach to cocktails, to the fragrantly scented Mimosa garden restaurant. The real highlight, though, is Moments, run by the son of wildly talented chef Carme Ruscalleda. A slightly more relaxed place for lunch, coffee or just a drink is Blanc, downstairs, where you can also get a delightful afternoon tea.
