“Barcelona is about art. You will feel Barcelona here.”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

The hotel has a strong sense of the magical: dramatic colour, dramatic shapes, great views etc. Lovely wait staff. Things do not always function, such as overly complex shower faucets and unfastened fixtures. But you are here for the lovely, sensual experience, cleanliness, absurdly sumptuous breakfast before you go exploring fantastic Barcelona. The building has history and you will feel it. We have a quiet room off of the main street. There is a small but useful 'fitness' room on the top deck, where you can enjoy the views. I have had to photograph the hotel interior as it seems so very Barcelona.

Room Tip: The bottom faucet is temperature. Adjust this FIRST so as not to burn yourself. And leave it alone w...

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.

We stayed here for one night prior to joining a cruise ship. The hotel certainly lived up to the reviews here on trip advisor. My only points to add would be it was definitely a long way out of the centre of things. Secondly the breakfasts may be raved about but we had to send both the tea and the coffee back as they were not hot, I think if you cannot get this right in this standard of hotel it is poor. You are paying a high price and expect things to be right, but maybe this is nit picking.

I generally stay at 4-star hotels or below in Barcelona, however, stayed at this five-star establishment this time. This hotel itself is an iconic landmark with the beautiful facade, that makes the visit/stay very pleasant. Located in safe and again, 'pleasant' neighbourhood of Gracia, the hotel suits well the travellers who are 'done' with La Rambra or the Port's areas. (N.B. It still is easy walking distance to La Rambra).
As noted in some reviews, some guests may find it noisy as it is after all located in a lively area but I personally did not have the problem.
Staff are all professional, not only efficient but also mostly with good friendliness. I particularly appreciated the helpfulness of one of the reception/concierge service staff as she added extra information/suggestions on top of the basic answers to my questions. This was one of the best experience at this hotel, because, while one would always find five-star hotel concierge 'efficient' but not always particularly friendly or value-added.
Breakfast buffet was of the quality you would expect from this class of hotel. Good selection and service.
Drinks on the roof terrace is quite expensive but certainly worth a visit - the view is superb.

If I am to point out one negative quality, housekeeping was rather inconsistent. Some amenities that were more than half-used were not filled. The box which is supposed to have chocolate for night was left empty for the first night. The towel I intentionally left over bidet was NOT replaced at the evening service but rather hung back on the rail. - All of these are not something that would totally spoil the stay, however, not something one expect to see at a five-star hotel.

A classic five-star hotel where you get what you would expect from a five-star establishment. Recommended.

Casa Fuster is a nicely situated hotel on Paseo de Gracia. The hotel is about a 10-30 minute walk from Barcelona’s main attractions.

The property has a nice roof top lounge/pool that has peaceful views overlooking Barcelona. It is a nice place to unwind and have a drink.

The rooms were ok and had nothing out of the ordinary (from what you would expect in a 5* hotel). That said, the rooms were very noisy given we had a room facing the main street (you would constantly hear peoples conversations, cars and motorcycles racing down the street and the occasional dog darks). I would have preferred to stay in a room that didn’t have the street view. Also, these rooms had pretty poor wifi signal (1 block on my iphone) and I would constantly get discounted as a result.

The buffet was nothing special. The pastries were good but unfortunately the menu/options contained a lot of sugar items and the cheese selection only contained hard cheese.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing street for a good nights sleep.

We stayed here as there was a mix up at our original hotel. We ended up being much better off. We had a standard double room, the bed was the size of 2 singles pushed together and I've never had pillows as soft as these, we slept for hours. And, unlike any other hotel I've stayed in, you could hear a pin drop, bliss.
Breakfast was a treat each morning, my husband kept laughing at me because I'd eat so much I'd already be planning the following mornings meal!
The staff are lovely too, not pretentious as staff in 5 star hotels can sometimes be.
Only 1 draw back and that's that it's quite far from the main centre but you can easily walk to the tube and catch that down a couple of stops. Get a T-10 pass for €10.30, this gets you 10 single journeys valid for a year. Only buy 1 as you can pass it back over to your partner. Much cheaper than taxis.

The Casa Fuster is beautifully appointed and within walking distance of most of the popular attractions in Barcelona. Our stay included an excellent breakfast with a great variety to choose from. The rooftop bar offers breathtaking views of Barcelona. The room was comfortable and hotel provided everything you could need in the bathroom including a razor and shaving cream. It was also nice to be in a high end hotel that did not charge for internet. This is a great place to stay when visiting Barcelona.

Room Tip: Higher floors offer a better view.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Located in the heart of Barcelona, on Passeig de Gràcia, this genuine gem designed by the Catalan architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner symbolises the spirit of modernism in its maximum capacity. Hotel Casa Fuster has traditionally been a meeting point for guests, artists, intellectuals and locals who look for a quiet and unique place for business or pleasure. The superior terrace with swimming pool has become a unique lookout point above the whole Passeig de Gràcia, the Mediterranean Sea, the Tibidabo mountain and the Sagrada Familia. It also has a reading room that is perfect to relax while enjoying a good book. As a Monument Building, Hotel Casa Fuster has the moral obligation to preserve this historic site. With the much awaited approval of the city of Barcelona, we have started the heritage conservation tasks in order to preserve the façade of this iconic hotel, built by the famous architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. This work will take place by dividing the building into sections, and will only affect the outside of the building. This division will insure the preservation works will be focused on a certain area of the property at one time, so the other areas will remain completely operative and functioning to their usual capacity. These tasks will maintain the beauty of this delicate white marble building and guarantee its splendor for many years to come. ... more   less
