Service matters at Bauzá Hotel, where the young bellhops wear the words can i help you?embroidered in English on their uniforms.

In the middle of the checkerboard Eixample neighborhood, this stunning steel-and-glass-encased building is redolent of an industrial complex and a Buddhist retreat.

More than 300 properties—chic apartments in Madrid; Mediterranean-facing villas in Ibiza—are hidden away in the country’s most beautiful corners. Airport transfers and pre-arrival grocery shopping are standard, and each villa is attended by a property manager who lives nearby.

Carved from a 19th-century Edwardian-style manor home, this 50-room hotel is steps from the city’s major museums. The effect is of a baronial mansion, with maids in starchy uniforms, concierge staff at your beck and call, and soaring Tiffany windows above an original curving stairwell.

The Neoclassical Hotel Majestic is located at the center of Barcelona amidst the city’s most popular Modernista architecture: the Sagrada Família, La Pedrera, and Casa Batlló.

Location is the major draw at this La Rambla property. The hotel has easy access to the city’s harbor, the Gothic Quarter, and Plaza Cataluña, among other top tourist destinations.

A garden furnished with glass pyramids isn’t the first thing you’d expect to find at a lakeside Art Nouveau villa in the Spanish Pyrenees, 92 miles north of Barcelona. But then again, the latest property from the über-stylish Hospes hotel chain is full of surprises.
