Picture a village vibe mingled with a trendy neighbourhood and spend the majority of your stay dreamily watching the luxury yachts dock at Port Vell, as you order refreshing drinks to your balcony 24 hours a day. Soak up the sun in the pool that overlooks the harbour and retreat to the comfort of your luminous room for some well needed down time.
Situated in Barcelona's gothic quarter, witness the majestic fusion of history and art at The Serras. With 28 guest rooms, the historic Molina-designed façade stands in alluring contrast to the latest technology utilised throughout the hotel, with urban and modern minimalism at play here.
Perched on the Passeig de Colom and in a superb position by the waterfront, you're treated to only the best views of the luxury yachts that float in and out of the marina, an area originally built for the 1992 Olympic games. You'll find Barceloneta's boardwalk beaches and some of the city's most recognisable landmarks are on your radar, such as the cathedral and the narrow streets and ancient buildings of the gothic quarter.
Visualise a minimalist focus on black and white graphic details and geometric patterns, with oversized headboards and cool contemporary decor bringing an aura of calm amid the bustling marina outside. All rooms feature state-of-the-art technology with some sound-proofed, Diptyque toiletries and a mobile phone to use free of charge, affording you the serenity you deserve.
Tantalise your tastebuds with an array of Catalan culinary dishes prepared by Michelin-starred chef Marc Gascons. The Informal offers a genteel open kitchen and grill to make guests feel as exclusively comfortable as possible. Mezzanine bar, Le Nine, offers a warm, relaxed atmosphere for early morning coffee or a pre-dinner aperitif.
Tremendous views of the Mediterranean and the Port Vell Marina are available from multiple sweet spots: the large and spacious rooms that welcome the sea breeze in through the window, by the pool or from the admirable position of the rooftop bar. If that doesn't float your boat, there are rooms that overlook Mercè Street. The perspectives are really rather endless.
