Gaudí himself would praise Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona. The luxury 120-room hotel is, after all, discreetly tucked along the upscale Paseo de Gracia near the artist’s own masterful Casa Batlló. Located in a former bank building (notice the old safe-deposit boxes in the aptly named Banker’s Bar), the hotel captures your imagination with its stylized interior, clean lines and bold use of white, black and beige. Guestrooms are open and airy with an Asian flair, while Moments, the signature two-Michelin-star restaurant, serves imaginative Catalan fare by Carme Ruscalleda, the world’s only female chef who has been awarded seven Michelin stars.
