Price From $119
On a prime block near the Plaça de Catalunya, this newly renovated 46-room hotel stands as an affordable alternative to swanky neighbors like the five-star Palace. But price isn't its only advantage: The decor swaps ostentation for understatement, with a muted palette, dark-wood furniture, and stone-tile floors. Each of the double rooms has its own balcony, but two roof terraces yield the ultimate luxury: a no-cover-charge retreat for enjoying stellar city views and a bottle of rioja.
