This sophisticated 28-room boutique hotel in the historic Gothic quarter, with a beautiful 19th-century façade facing the Port Vell waterfront harbor, housed Pablo Picasso’s first studio back in 1896. The interior design overseen by Eva Martínez combines a modern décor, including black-and-white geometric patterns and abstract paintings, with traditional Catalan accents. The rooms are bright and spacious and feature wrought-iron balconies; most suites also come with Jacuzzi tubs and sitting areas with dining tables. Amenities include the indoor-outdoor Informal restaurant overseen by Michelin-starred chef Marc Gascons for regional specialties, and a rooftop terrace with a swimming pool and a casual bar offering an extensive menu for light snacks and cocktails.
