Cool comforts in the Catalonian capital

Angelika Taschen has selected a delectable range of hotels and hotspots for your stay in Barcelona, from the Hotel Neri in the Gothic district to the modern and minimal Hotel Omm with breathtaking views of Gaudí’s Casa Milà; to the Casa Camper, a quirky and multicultural smoke-free hotel in the former prostitute quarter run by the famous Spanish shoe makers. She also tells you where to taste the best tapas and innovative Catalan cuisine as well as where to check out contemporary art exhibitions and the best markets.

About the series: Angelika Taschen`s Hotel series books are much more than simple hotel guides. They are meant to be taken along on your trip, as they not only feature the best and most interesting places to stay—from low budget to luxury—but also list hot spots for each hotel`s neighborhood. Once you`re installed in the hotel of your choice, you can peruse our suggestions for restaurants, bars, boutiques, specialty shops, and more.

- hand-illustrated postcard
