Located on Passeig de Gracia, the Mandarin Oriental is very close to everything, from shops to cafes to bars, you name it! Walking into the hotel, you enter the gorgeous lobby, immediately transcending to a place of clam and quiet, a difficult refuge to find in busy cities. The hotel boasts a beautiful mix of earth tones incorporating the eastern influence so as to strike the perfect balance between Barcelona and an Oriental twist. We enjoyed a glass of wine and dinner on the roof terrace and were taken aback by it's beauty. We got some of the most stunning sunset pictures of Barcelona on this terrace, which also featured a pool! Not only are the facilities incredible, but the Mandarin Oriental is a place where customer service reigns supreme, and guests are truly looked after.
