There can’t be any better city to check into a stylish boutique hotel than the h10 Montcada Boutique Hotel. Vibrant, historic and up-to-date, and always life-affirming, the Catalan capital’s virtues are reflected in the h10 Montcada Boutique Hotel in one of Barca’s best locations.
This signature neoclassical building sits on the Via Laietana, one of Barcelona’s most important thoroughfares, notable enough to demand its own Wikipedia page. It’s a brilliantly practical location for visitors, running down to the port it slices between the pretty, historic heart of the city, the Barri Gotic, and El Born, a quieter but just as beautiful area with more local character to it.
h10 Montcada fits in perfectly to these picturesque surroundings. Its interiors have been designed around historic travel themes, and rooms are individually styled with an elegance that’s typical of the city.
The B-Topic restaurant is where to head for fine cuisine, if you want just a drink, try the A-Topic bar. If you want a perfect end to your day, take your cocktail and wander up to the Sunset Lounge terrace, where you can also pop into the Jacuzzi and enjoy some of the best views in Barcelona. The hotel also hosts a fitness centre and a solarium.
Once you’re settled in, rent a bike from reception and head out into one of Europe’s most exciting cities. Right on your doorstep are the extraordinary buildings of the Barri Gotic. On your way to the Parc de la Ciutadella, home to the city’s zoo and some iconic Barcelona modernist architecture, pop into the Picasso Museum.
A great hotel is a good starting point for your holiday, but a great hotel in such a great location in such a great city ticks all the boxes.
