A Room With a View of Gehry's Goldfish
The hotel is actually a Ritz-Carlton hotel and has 483 rooms including 56 executive suites in its 44-storeys. This makes it one of the tallest skyscrapers in Barcelona. Inside the rooms you will find:
Spacious, cosseting, high-tech, sand-coloured affairs: expect a bedside control panel for lights and window blinds, a pillow menu, and a deep bath and separate power shower in a swish marble bathroom. For those with money to burn, there are also very stylish split-level duplex apartments.
Also on-site at the hotel are five restaurants, a fitness center, an outdoor pool, fashion boutiques and a jewelry store, and a Hediard delicatessen.
What sounds the most heavenly? The Six Senses Spa on the 43rd floor. What doesn't sound relaxing? The fact that you can't open the windows and the Ritz-y prices being charged like €16 for a chicken sandwich. Still, the paper rated the hotel 4 out of 5 Ts (equivalent to stars we reckon.) Room rates start at €287.
