Hotels in Spain
This 19th-century Restoration home on the Plaza de la Independencia is one of the latest (opened in 2007) in the line of historic but decrepit buildings reinvigorated by the Hospes hotel team.
A cliffside luxury hotel.
Past the columned entrance off Paseo de la Castellana, this 10-story brick hotel has a lobby filled with black leather couches, metal accents, and wood paneling.
At the end of a lavender-and-cypress-lined drive in Majorca’s southeastern countryside, the Gran Hotel Son Julia presides over a landscape of orange and almond groves with an air of noblesse oblige.
Iznájar is the quintessential pueblo blanco, a whitewashed village rising from the hills of Andalusia. Two Belgian expats recently opened the five-room Casa Rural el Olivar, a former farm on the town’s outskirts.
One in a chain of hotels, each with unique personalities based on a fictional character (sibling hotels in Madrid are Oscar, Mario, and Laura), Alicia is crisp and contemporary, with light-wood wall panels and brightly colored bed throws offsetting the otherwise all-white décor.
The vibe here is playful: think oversize furniture, pink walls, and white bedding.
The Market Hotel is conveniently located at the border of L'Eixample and El Raval. Set in an early-20th-century town house with four-poster beds and Indian teak furniture, this affordable option is a great value.
