Amy Adejokun Section editor

This legendary hotel in Barcelona, the Majestic Barcelona, has had its beauty restored since the huge redevelopment plan that began in July 2010. A special mention for the 10th floor terrace with its bar, swimming pool and spa overlooking the Passeig de Gràcia street. The view of the Sagrada Familia from here is one of the best in the city. The guest rooms are very comfortable. The hotel does not have a gourmet restaurant but breakfast is exceptional and the tapas menu in the piano bar lounge is simply divine.

    Location 7.5 /10

    The Majestic Barcelona is ideally located on the prestigious and elegant Passeig de Gracia, where all of the luxury boutiques are found. The hotel is situated between the Casa Batllo and the Casa Mila, better known as the Pedrera. It is halfway between two underground stations: Passeig de Gracia, where the train stops on the way to airport terminal 2, and Diagonal, which is more practical for getting to the Sagrada Familia and the Park Güell. If you need to get to terminal 1 at the airport, take the Aérobus from Plaça de Catalunya (Catalonia Square) a 10-minute walk away.

    Accommodation 9.45 /10

    Most of the guest rooms are different and there are 7 room categories! Their size varies from 20m² to 150m², but most are more than 30m², while the junior suites measure 45m² and the suites 60m². You can tell that this is a classy hotel: thick carpet that feels good underfoot, a king-size bed with a choice of four pillows and a chocolate waiting for you on it in the evening. In between two excursions to the nearby Predrera or the Casa Batllo, guests can come back to their rooms for a good cup of Nespresso coffee (included) to re-energize. The rest of the (well stocked) minibar fridge, however, costs extra. Guests can store their valuables in the large electronic safe, iron their shirts, place their luggage on the luggage rack (folded in the wardrobe), watch one of the many cable channels (45 channels including CNN, BBC World and Euronews) on the large flat-screen television, adjust the (quiet) air-conditioning to their taste, and surf the web for free using the code from reception (if they have a smartphone, tablet or a laptop). The soundproofing is impeccable, and the little everyday essentials are all there: ironing board and iron, umbrella, shoehorn, shoe-cleaning products etc. Room service is available 24/7. The decor is contemporary, in tones of brown, white and beige, with modern paintings.

    The white and grey marble bathrooms are spacious, bright and well decorated, with a green plant to brighten them up. They are fitted with a sliding door, twin wash basins, a large bathtub (bubble bath in the suites) with a handle, a shower hose and a tropical shower, a separate shower, bathrobes and slippers, a professional hair-dryer with a nozzle, a make-up mirror, and toiletries from the prestigious Italian brand Bulgari. There is even a toothbrush and toothpaste, in case you forget your toiletry bag! The toilets are separated by a sliding door and include a bidet and a telephone. The suites come with a lounge area (closed off by a sliding door) where there is a second large flat-screen television, a separate toilet in addition to the one in the bathroom, a round wooden table, two armchairs, a brown sofa, a coffee table, and in some, an elegant wooden desk overlooking the prestigious Passeig de Gracia which can be seen through the large glazed window.

    Overview 8.95 /10

    Classy and elegant, the neo-classical façade of the Majestic Barcelona holds its own on the prestigious Passeig de Gracia street. This superb building has been home tolds one of the most luxurious hotels in the Catalonian capital since its construction in 1918. Indeed, it will soon be celebrating its 100th anniversary and underwent important renovation work from July 2010 to the end of 2013. The 10-storey building holds 275 guest rooms (instead of the 303 before the renovation), including 42 suites, which are now more spacious. The lobby sets the tone of this luxury hotel right away, with its Cartier and Louis Vuitton display cases. Paintings, artworks, statues, columns and tapestries can be seen here and there in the corridors, the lobby and on the way to the restaurant. The lounge bar is a charming place to enjoy a drink. In the evening, it serves excellent tapas accompanied by the sound of the piano Wednesday to Saturday from 7:00pm to 11:00pm, while the bar itself is open from 8:00am until 2:00am. On the basement level, there is a business centre with a printer and four computers at guests' disposal, as well as a gym, open from 7:00am to 11:00pm and accessible using the room key. Spacious, it is equipped with modern equipment and several flat-screen televisions, toiletries, towels, shaving products, deodorants, a water dispenser and apples. But what gives the Majestic Barcelona its reputation is its panoramic rooftop terrace on the 10th floor, known as the Dolce Vitae. Here you will find a spa, a small swimming pool and a bar. A magical place that attracts the whole of Barcelona for tapas and (excellent) cocktails while admiring one of the best views in the city, particularly of the Sagrada Familia, the Casa Batllo and the Torre Agbar. Open all year round from 9:00am to 8:00pm, the terrace is at its best from May to the end of October: the pool is hotter (it is not heated) and open until 2:00am, people can come for dinner, and regular DJ evenings are organised.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    The day couldn't get off to a better start thanks to the delicious breakfast served in the first floor dining room, which can seat 110 guests. Guests walk past an antique-looking column, present themselves at the reception and are shown to their seats. A piece of advice: avoid the tables near the kitchen door as it bangs shut every time a waiter passes through... Once seated, a waiter quickly returns to take your order for hot drinks (tea, coffee, hot chocolate), then you can head wide-eyed to the buffet. Ham, hanging like in any self-respecting Spanish tapas bar, croissants, pains au chocolat, local pastries (lemon meringue pie, chocolate cake, millefeuille with Catalan cream, the only dish not made on site but ordered from the best cake shop in Barcelona, in the Barceloneta district), a large choice of delicious breads, cheese, cold meat cuts, and of course fresh fruit juices (orange, apple, carrot, strawberry, etc.). All the food is well presented and exudes class! There is also a show cooking area, where pancakes, waffles, and all sorts of eggs (fried, scrambled, omelette etc.) are served. One week isn't long enough to try it all! In summer, guests can sit outside or on the panoramic terrace on the 10th floor, which serves a tapas menu from 9:00am to 8:00pm, and until 2:00am from May to October.

    The breakfast room, which is open from 7:00am to 11:00am, is also where you will find Mediterranean cuisine for lunch between 1:00pm and 2:30pm. From April to October, guests can also eat tapas on the panoramic terrace (65-person capacity) which affords a stunning view of Barcelona and, in particular, the Sagrada Familia. If you want to enjoy your tapas to the sound of the piano, head to the lounge bar (47-person capacity). Seated on a comfortable sofa, you can savour the tapas prepared by Michelin-star Catalonian chef Nandu Jubany as a set menu during the week and à la carte at the weekend, from 8:00pm to 11:00pm. There is no official gourmet restaurant on site but the hotel owns the Petit Comité restaurant two blocks away near the Pedrera, where the kitchen is run by a Michelin star chef.

    Spa 8.2 /10

    Open from 9:00am to 9:00pm, the spa at the Majestic Barcelona is located on the 10th floor. A privileged location as after a treatment, guests can enjoy a cup of green tea on the panoramic rooftop terrace, with its own swimming pool, while admiring the sea and the Sagrada Familia. The Majestic Spa has been awarded the Spa Excellence certification by the American SPAQUALITY LLC organisation. The masseurs are very professional, and use quality cosmetic products from the Catalonian Natura Bissé brand. As you will have understood, this means high-quality massages. Once inside your treatment room, get undressed and under the towel, then all you need to do is press a button and your masseur will know that you are ready for your massage. The session starts with a presentation of five essential aromatic oils each with a different scent (lemon, incense, etc.) for you to choose from, and each with different virtues: vitalising, relaxing, energizing, good for the skin, etc. Have you chosen? Then get ready for 30 minutes (?52/£43 for the cheapest massage), or even an hour or more, of heaven (although the prices rise steeply), lulled by the classical music. The sauna, hammam, ice fountain and sensation shower are reserved for guests paying for treatments, who have the privilege of enjoying these facilities in private. The spa has five massage rooms, but none for couples. Ayurvedic, Swedish, hot stone, Hawaiian - it's up to you! The spa also serves as a beauty salon with manicures, facials and pedicures available, the latter with two side-by-side armchairs that are a favourite with honeymooners!
