Hotel 1898, Barcelona, Spain
This delightfully original hotel has a central location and interior that suggest rather higher room rates than usually offered. Originally a colonial building, the hotel mixes colourful decor with historic architectural features. Housed in an impressive Modernist structure built in 1891, it has both an indoor and a roof terrace pool, an atmospheric spa and a fitness centre. You can enjoy tapas on the terrace, or have a more formal meal in the restaurant overlooking the lively Las Ramblas. There's also a business centre, and guest rooms are spacious and comfortable.
You'll love being in the heart of the city, with Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter on your doorstep.
The hotel is a short walk from the city's famous sites including Plaza Catalunya, the Gothic Quater and Sagrada Familia.
By plane: Fly to El-Prat from London (2 hours 5 mins), Manchester (2 hours 20 mins) and Edinburgh (2 hours 40 mins). The hotel is a 30-minute drive from the airport. skyscanner.net
