Hotel rooftops with the best views

In case you don’t know it, hotel rooftops are sacred in Barcelona. As soon as spring starts, the Barcelonese love to enjoy the sunset and longer evenings while enjoying a drink or dinner on one of the hundreds of rooftops spread around the city.

You can find them with or without pools, plants, bars, parties, DJ sets, quiet, crazy, romantic… To make it easier for you, here’s a list of 3 of the best hotel rooftops in Barcelona. It was very hard to choose just three, so stay tuned – I can’t wait to share more with you!

1. Grand Hotel Central


This is my personal favorite: the views, the infinity pool, the hotel’s location right in Born, the relaxed vibe…

Where: Via Laietana, 30

2. Catalonia Barcelona Plaza

I can’t believe I spent years without knowing this place. If you want to enjoy a breathtaking view of the city without having to go to the mountains, trust me, this is the place. I was here for a sunset drink and it was just magical. Perfect also for watching the Magic Fountain of Montjuic from a distance, without the hassle of the crowds.

Where: Plaça Espanya, 6-8

3. Barceló Raval
