Every day can end as beautifully as it began from the spectacular rooftop of this chic boutique hotel set in the buzzy and history-rich El Raval district. Dishing up knockout city vistas of Plaça de la Universitat, the communal terrace is a fine spot to toast a day's end with live music and sundowners. And you won't need to move a muscle when thoughts turn to food. With no kitchen in the room, the on-site restaurant is on hand to deliver continental breakfasts and Mediterranean evening feasts with a view. A no-brainer for guests looking to combine work and play in the city, there's a dedicated desk space and lightning-speed wi-fi in your room. And when you're ready to stretch your legs in some downtime, the vibrant streets surrounding Plaça de la Universitat deliver all the Catalan vibes you're chasing. Get off to a flying start at the swish boutiques lining Rambla del Raval. Or, for something more traditional, the colour sensation of La Boqueria market (ten minutes on foot) won't disappoint.
