Best Hotels in Barcelona with Pools
Barcelona has a lot going for it. The city is full of culture, history, unique style, and tons of hotels with pools! The weather is great so it makes sense, right? One of the best parts is that many of these hotels are pretty affordable. You may even be able to upgrade!
5 Star | €€ | Gothic Quarter | Contemporary Upscale | Rooftop Pool
Ohla is a real gem because it is a large contemporary hotel in the Gothic Quarter that is priced reasonably. Standard rooms sit in the mid 200s which means you can upgrade to a larger typology if you have a stronger budget.
Nobody “needs” a huge layout when they travel but it sure is nice! They have a pretty cool rooftop plunge pool which you can see in the article featured image above.
5 Star | €€€€ | Modern | Beachfront | Rooftop Pool
The W Barcelona is one hell of a hotel. They have ridiculous suites costing $10k/night outfitted with DJ equipment to standard rooms with king beds and partial water views for under $400/night.
The price for a standard room is actually very reasonable considering how luxurious the hotel is, the location, and that it is basically the nicest hotel in Barcelona.
This is an excellent choice for those of you who want a nice hotel and are ok taking a taxi to visit the main sites of the city. It is easily one of the best hotels in Barcelona.
Sir Victor Hotel
5 Star | €€ | Eixample/Passeig de Gràcia | Rooftop Pool
Barcelona hotels can be insanely nice at super low prices compared to other major EU cities, and Sir Victor is a great example.
Sir Victor is a great hotel, with modern rooms, a beautiful pool, and excellent reviews. For me it is an easy option as a romantic, family-friendly, or simply a nice hotel.
Eurostars Grand Marina Hotel
5 Star | € | Spacious | Waterfront | Rooftop Pool
It is rare that 5 Star hotels cost less than $200, but Eurostars is a spacious and luxurious hotel at low costs. If you have a larger budget consider upgrading to a larger room typology.
The location is unique in that you are not super connected to the center so consider what you are traveling to Barcelona for. This may be more of a couples hotel in my opinion as you will likely be taking a lot of taxis and that can get hectic with small children.
If you are traveling for a romantic vacation, this hotel has stunning views of Montjuïc and the rest of Barcelona so it will definitely make our “Sexy Hotel” list!
Casagrand Luxury Suities
4 Star | Luxury Suites | Eixample | Rooftop Plunge Pool | Family Friendly
Casagrand is my #1 pick for multi-generational or multi-family travel. Even single family travel as they do have a smaller suite. Why?
I am not a huge AirBnB fan when visiting cities for many reasons, but mostly because I like a front desk. Casagrand is a serviced apartment rental building with beautiful apartments that are pretty reasonable if you are traveling with other groups.
They offer a ton of privacy and the building is not overrun with other guests. These types of listings get me super excited about traveling and while I have not personally stayed here, I will definitely be checking it out in the near future.
Hotel SB Glow
4 Star | € | Modern | Rooftop Pool | Family Friendly
Beautiful 4 star hotel in a great location of Barcelona with an epic rooftop pool. The prices are too good to be true so book sooner than later!
Grand Hotel Central
5 Star | Barcelona Cathedral | Mondern | Rooftop Pool
Grand Hotel Central is a modern hotel with great location at a good price which makes it an easy choice. There is a fantastic rooftop pool and cool dining facilities on site. It is just outside the Gothic Quarter which means easy access to history, beaches, and lots to do.
Cotton House Hotel, Autograph Collection
5 Star | €€ | Modern Luxury | Eixample | Rooftop Pool
The Cotton House is a really nice hotel at a great price with some beautiful common areas. There is a fantastic rooftop pool, beautiful bistro-looking restaurant among other beautiful spaces.
It is a very nice hotel at an even better price. I highly recommend taking a peek at this one and considering a typology upgrade to get more space.
5 Star Hotel | €€€ | Eixample | Luxury & Modern | Rooftop Pool
I love this hotel for many reasons but above all the design and location. The soft earth-tone colors are relaxing which is what you really need on vacation. Sitting on the balcony and having a fresh-squeezed orange juice would be a dream come true.
It is also in this perfect little pocket very close to everything. You could walk into the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona or hang around Passeig de Gràcia and do some shopping.
They also have some killer deals for their “buy now, stay later” feature on the site. Flexible stays for the future at discounted rates. I love it!
5 Star Hotel | €€€€+ | Eixample/Passieg de Gràcia | Rooftop Pool
As a hotel group, the Mandarin Oriental consistently makes some of the nicest and most stylish hotels in the world which is why they end up at the top of every “best hotels” list in any city they open up.
The Barcelona location is no different which you will see upon arrival. Beautiful and spacious rooms furnished to the nines inside hotels with wonderful amenities. An amazing rooftop pool and lounge, multiple restaurants, common areas and more. It is a beautiful
El Palace Hotel Barcelona
5 Star Hotel | €€€ | Eixample | Rooftop Pool
I really like this hotel for a few reasons. First, the location is just about the best in the entire city. This is because it is near all the great shops of Eixample & Passieg de Gràcia, but walking distance to the Gothic quarter which is super picturesque for day-time strolls.
The hotel itself is incredibly reasonable in terms of pricing. This level of hotel in Paris or Rome would cost twice the price for a standard room.
This is an easy choice for anyone that wants a great hotel in a great area at a great price.
Hotel Neri Relais & Chateaux
5 Star | €€ | Gothic Quarter | Relias & Chateaux Boutique | Family Friendly | Private Pool
Important: This hotel does not have a pool for all guests. There is a private pool in the Casa Neri Apartment which is perfect for families.
Hotel Neri is a great choice for a small family in my eyes. This is because it is situated right in the Gothic Quarter which is great for fun nights out and peaceful strolls.
The hotel itself is modern and has a lot of fun features. They also have an apartment named “Casa Neri Apartment” which is reasonably priced for a family with some amenities that could come in handy like a terrace, private pool, and kitchen!
Hotel Catalonia Catedral
4 Star | € | Updated | Rooftop Pool
Hotel Catalonia Catedral is a clean, comfortable, and centrally located hotel with a great rooftop pool. This makes it excellent for families, couples, and travelers on a budget.
The One Barcelona
5 Star | €€€ | Eixample/Passieg de Gràcia | Incredible Facilities | Rooftop Pool
With a name like “The One” you’d hope it would be an easy choice and it is. Very reasonable prices per night given how nice property is combined with a rooftop pool and some incredible on-premises bars & restaurants makes it… the one!
I recommend picking a room typology with a balcony as it adds to the experience!
Hotel Arts Barcelona
5 Star Hotel | €€€€ | Barcelonetta/Beach | Modern | Rooftop Pool
Hotel Arts is a pretty sexy hotel in Barcelona with a killer rooftop pool right on the beach. While it is definitely upscale and the price reflects that I still think you could stay here with your kids and have a great time in Barcelona.
