Modern Luxury - A review of The One Barcelona

Updated: Jan 8, 2019

After spending New Year's Eve in Jerusalem with my family, my mother and I headed off to Barcelona. Neither of us had been to Spain and we were looking forward to experiencing the "happy city" for ourselves. When deciding where to stay I did a quick google search and ended with The One Barcelona. A modern luxury hotel right in the heart of the city.

As soon as we arrived the true elegance of the hotel really set in. We were greeted at our taxi and escorted inside by very a couple of very friendly gentlemen who also took our bags. We were seated and greeted by a very lovely receptionist who checked us in quickly and ensured us any need we had would be catered to.

The beautiful restaurant in the hotel lobby

From here we were led to our beautifully appointed suite, for a full tour you can check out the video below.

The rooms really were over the top. All marble floors and walls, electric curtains, and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Some hotels have very pretty rooms but this was also designed perfectly. There was a sliding divider to add privacy to the bathroom section of the room, the shower and toilet areas doubled as full size mirrors that beautiful blend into the wall, and you could control just about everything from the electric panels located on each side of the bed.

Turn down services includes chocolate and bedside champaign

The finishes in the bathroom were gorgeous

After relaxing in the room for a while, I went to check out the rooftop bar.

The views from the rooftop were amazing and really bring the bar over the top. There was a nice heated pool and lounge chairs to hang around while taking in the sunset. One of my favorite things is hanging around the pool and even with January weather it was still very pleasant.

Overall the Hotel was outstanding. The staff were very kind and helpful with everything we needed and made sure we felt welcome. The restaurant had a great breakfast with fresh juices and bread. The rooms were incredibly well designed and felt very luxurious. Next time I'm in Barcelona this is my go-to hotel!
