Mandarin Oriental Will Say 'Hola' To Barcelona Later This Year

Looks like we might have to return to Barcelona again pretty soon. We're already eagerly anticipating the opening of the W Barcelona and now we've got word that Mandarin Oriental will open their Barcelona outpost later this year. From the press release:

Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona is ideally located on Paseo de Gracia, Barcelona’s most prestigious address, at the very center of the city’s commercial and entertainment district. The property provides easy access to the city’s finest shopping, dining and cultural venues and is a short walk from many major tourist attractions. From the hotel, guests will be able to stroll amongst the city’s celebrated promenades and architecture and enjoy the attractions of the famous Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter. Barcelona’s many museums, churches and parks are all close at hand and two of the most celebrated buildings by the city’s famous architect, Gaudi, are just a stone’s throw from the hotel.

The hotel will feature only 98 guest rooms, all designed by Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola. A 10,763 square foot Spa at Mandarin Oriental will be onsite and of course, several restaurant and bars are expected, one of which will be al fresco in the hotel's 7,104 square foot outdoor garden. Plus, a rooftop pool. We just hope it's bigger than the Omm Hotel's rooftop pool.

No word on the price point yet but expect it to be muy caro.

Very cool, but...

I'd still rather stay at Casa Batllo (not that it's ever been an option).
