Hotels in Spain

An intimate 18th-century palace that blends old-world romance with funky Catalan chic in medieval Barri Gotic, the neighborhood where Picasso lived, studied, and painted many of his Blue Period canvases. Dine on wild-mushroom risotto at the hotel's velvet swathed restaurant.

The Spanish chain Quilibra is designed for sleep-deprived guests: indoor and outdoor spaces flow together to induce calm, rooms come with ambient-sound CD’s, and light levels are adjusted according to findings by the hotel’s “sleep institute.”

On a quiet corner by the Cartagena's walls, the hotel is located across from the Teatro Heredia Adolfo Mejía, one of the city's architectural gems.

Swaggering onto the scene, the Hospes Palau de la Mar announced Valencia’s coming of age.

Built in 1919, but renovated in 2004, this Eixample neighborhood hotel is near several major attractions: Las Ramblas, Passeig de Gràcia, The Picasso Museum, and Museum of Modern Art.

Intimate beachfront villas—once the residence of Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe—on a lush stretch of the Golden Mile.

Room to Book: Executives overlooking the garden.

The hotel prides itself on top-notch service. Housekeepers leave bonbons or flowers on pillows in Superior rooms and suites, and concierges create unique itineraries (a tour of La Boqueria market with a Spanish food expert, for example).

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.
