Top Romantic Hotels in Barcelona
For me, a romantic hotel is a place with excellent design, creative room layouts, and great views. I always look to integrate a balcony and a spacious bathroom. The more creative the better which is why I love our first choice, Hotel Neri. One of the room typology comes with an open air bathtub!

Hotel Neri Relais & Chateaux
5 Star | €€ | Gothic Quarter | Relias and Chateaux Boutique | Romantic
Hotel Neri looks like the perfect hotel for romantic couples in my eyes. 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. Some of the rooms have outdoor bathtubs which are totally risqué and fun! That appears to be in the “Deluxe room with Terrace” only.
For the price, I likely am going to reserve this one with the wife which feels like a safe choice!
Sir Victor Hotel
5 Star | €€ | Eixample/Passeig de Gràcia | Rooftop Pool
Barcelona hotels can be insanely nice at super low prices and Sir Victor is a great example. Prices may likely increase when travel demand returns, but they would have to double to match the market of other major EU cities and I don’t see that happening.
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.
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

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.
I often look to upgrade the room a bit when on a romantic trip with my wife. It is difficult to be suave if you are tripping over luggage and a balcony is a great place to share a glass of wine in the evenings!
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 with taking a taxi to visit the main sites of the city. It is easily one of the best hotels in Barcelona.
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 freshly-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! Nothing says romance like a hotel suite!
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 which is why it makes our “Sexy Hotel” list!
