A 2019 Condé Nast Traveler Gold List winner for Best Urban Hotels in Spain and a 2018 TripAdvisor Traveler's Choice winner for Best Luxury Hotel in Spain, The Serras in Barcelona is a seaside resort where the blue beauty of the Mediterranean competes with the gorgeous architecture of the city's stunning Gothic Quarter. The Serras offers travelers the perfect place to rest and relax when not out on the town seeing the city's best sites. Guests of The Serras can:
- Stay in luxurious, soundproofed rooms in an elegant hotel in the city's most historic neighborhood

Explore the neighborhood, see the city sights, or just take a day to relax with an in-room massage, all in a building that once housed one of Pablo Picasso's very first studios.

The Serras offers travelers 28 individually decorated guestrooms, making for an intimate experience where the dedication to personalized service is only exceeded by the luxurious comfort of four distinct room types. From the standard, but no less luxurious Superior Room all the way to the deluxe Mediterranean Suite with its own sitting area and separate living room, there's a room for every type of traveler at The Serras, whether they be couples, families, solo explorers, or business travelers.
All rooms feature soundproof windows, balconies with views of the city or the sea, rain showers, an in-room media hub, high-end Diptyque Paris bath amenities, and curated décor composed of bright, white walls with black-metal accents, mod-but-comfortable furniture, and small details such as matching geometric patterns found on headboards, bath floors, and hall carpets.
As expected of a five-star European hotel, The Serras also offers in-room spa services such as facials and body treatments, along with a fully equipped fitness center, the El Sueño rooftop pool and lounge, and limousine service and valet parking upon request. The Serras's Guest Relations team is also available to help you book a bespoke private tour, reserve a table at a local restaurant, get tickets to sports or cultural events, book transportation, and provide in-depth information on all of Barcelona's beloved attractions and landmarks.
When in Barcelona, Catalonian cuisine and seafood reign supreme, so it only makes sense that travelers can enjoy locally sourced seafood such as roasted monkfish and charcoal grilled squid from Informal Restaurant, salted anchovy tapas from El Sueño de Picasso, and Mediterranean drinks and cocktails, such as a pitcher of sangria from Le Nine lounge. Each of the hotel's dining venues offers its own unique experience.
Informal Restaurant – Helmed by Michelin-starred chef Marc Gascons, Informal Restaurant serves Catalonian and Mediterranean seasonal and locally-sourced dishes designed for sharing. The menu features charcoal grilled turbot with roasted leeks and honeyed-potato gnocchi with butter sauce and black winter truffles.
El Sueño de Picasso – Located on The Serras's beautiful rooftop, with expansive views of Barcelona's Port Vella Marina on the Mediterranean, this bar is the perfect evening spot for cocktails, classic tapas, and health food, including tartare, salad, and paella.
Le Nine – Located on the mezzanine overlooking The Serras's lobby, this beautiful, quiet, and intimate space offers guests morning coffee, pre-dinner aperitifs, and evening nightcaps to the sounds of live DJs every summer weekend.
From a relaxing late afternoon spent in the rooftop pool to an intimate evening of cocktails at Le Nine lounge followed by a full-spread of Catalonian tapas at Informal Restaurant, The Serras provides guests with all the activities and amenities anyone could ask for in a five-star Spanish hotel with the added benefit of being in the very heart of the Catalonian capital.
Outside the hotel, explore the rich heritage and culture that Barcelona has to offer at:
- Las Ramblas – a shopping street, perfect for tourists and locals alike
- Boqueria Market – local cuisine souvenirs abound at this ancient city market
- Basílica de la Sagrada Família – Antoni Gaudí's famed cathedral that's been a work in progress for well over a century
- Barcelona's beaches – One of the few areas on the Mediterranean with sandy beaches, perfect for a morning spent sunbathing by the sea
- Gothic Quarter – the area immediately surrounding the hotel features buildings and homes from the late medieval era, along with shops, restaurants, and bars
Ideally located along Barcelona's Mediterranean coast, The Serras couldn't be more perfectly positioned for tourists and travelers ready to explore one of Spain's best cities. Set in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, The Serras is surrounded by unmistakable architecture where buildings sit shoulder to shoulder along narrow alleyways. The rest of the city is a traveler's paradise, with parks, historic sites, many architectural masterpieces by Antoni Gaudí, and plenty of restaurants and bars offering traditional tapas and other Catalonian cuisine. And with proximity to both the subway and international airport, travel to and from the city is simple, quick, and easy.
