With an unrivalled prestige location in the heart of Barcelona, The One Barcelona is less than 100 metres from Gaudi’s La Pedrera and Paseo de Gracia – the prestigious high-street boulevard which is home to most of the international luxury fashion brands. Being located on a smaller street that leads to Paseig de Gracia, also makes the hotel ideal for those seeking serenity, away from the bustle of the big boulevard. The entire neighbourhood is famous not only for shopping but also superb dining, from the most casual authentic to more formal. The Concierges of the hotel are perfectly trained to cater to your most discerning demands.
With a state-of-the-art Spa, wellness centre but also a rooftop panoramic plunge pool which boasts a sundeck with panoramic views of Barcelona, the hotel is actually an exquisite luxury urban resort, ideal for leisure travellers. The 24-hour gym is equipped with cardiovascular and toning workout equipment – a new line of Technogym designed by Antonio Citterio. The wellness area features a heated water zone and a Finnish sauna, ideal for the colder seasons.
The Despacio Spa features base organic products but also the complete range of product of iS Clinical, an expertly developed line based on Extremozymes, which are enzymes produced by plants living in extreme environments that assist survival and adaptability. These miracles of adaptation can also be used to protect human skin from damage caused by environmental extremes. The founders of the brand draw from the natural selection processes of specialized extremophilic organisms, pioneering the future of skin care in terms of ultimate protection for healthy skin.
The Mood Rooftop Bar and Restaurant is undoubtedly a centre point of the hotel, not only for the breathtaking panoramic views of Barcelona but also for its exceptional cuisine and laid-back, effortless feel. There is covered area which makes the rooftop accessible in rainy or cold weather. You will love the Spanish traditional dishes, with a twist while sipping on a sophisticated cocktail.

Tapas, small dishes and all-time classics comprise Somni Restaurant’s gastronomic offering.
The Somni restaurant features one of the best breakfast experiences in Barcelona, both in terms of selection & quality of dishes but also service. The restaurant is complemented, on the ground floor, by the Cocktail & Wine Bar – which actually makes up the biggest part of the lobby.

Neutral beige and gold tones adorn the finest quality materials and finishes (marble, wood, limestone etc) while top-quality textures and intricate lighting achieve a sophisticated yet very functional interior design. Art is showcased in every room thanks to work designed exclusively for The One Barcelona by the Chilean artist Fernando Prats, who transforms the beauty of a bird’s flight into a collection that conveys elegance and majesty.
