On an upmarket shopping street near wonderful Gaudi buildings, I'd recommend Casa Fuster over the many other hotels I've stayed in in Barcelona. Best of all is that it manages to combine old-fashioned grand hotel style with up to date room decors. You get both charm and comfort, not always a combination that is easy to find. I stayed there one night on a business trip, but am looking forward to using it as a base for a long weekend with my wife.
