Forget about staying in the touristy parts of this beautiful city - stay up in the mountain just 20mins from the city and enjoy a magnificent view from the hotel every day and night! The drive to and from the city is relaxing as you meander along the winding mountain road in the bus or taxi, passing small houses, lush foliage, panting cyclists and courageous joggers. next to the hotel is a lookout point for a clear view of the city and the Pyrenees mountains beyond.
The hotel itself is a beautifully conserved early 20th century building with wooden stairs, generous rooms and splendid views. if you hate modern buildings in an art-filled, historic city like Barcelona, this hotel will not disappoint. The cafe leads out to an outdoor pool while there is an indoor spa/pool also, I believe. Service is prompt and polite.
The only downside is that there are no shops in the vicinity, save for a restaurant next to the amusement park and the beautiful Tibidabo church, both 10mins walk away. But if you plan well and buy what you need from the city, you'll not be caught out for conveniences. For the view and tranquility, this resort on a mountain is well worth the distance from the bustle of Barcelona city centre.
