The Mandarin oriental Barcelona: new luxurious suites
For those who want to discover the amazing city of Barcelona with a prime location on the famous Passeig de Gràcia, Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona is one of the city’s most luxurious hotels.
Contemporary Catalan design
Fusing high style with classic luxury, Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona enjoys a stunning setting in the heart of the city.
Set in a mid-19th century bank, the Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona boasts an excellent central location on the Passeig de Gràcia and is surrounded by the city’s best shopping, dining and cultural venues, as well as its most noteworthy landmarks, including Las Ramblas, la Sagrada Família, and the Gothic Quarter.
With chic contemporary interiors, a choice of enticing indoor and outdoor space, exquisite dining and one of the best spas in the Catalan capital, the Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona offers an extraordinary hotel experience.
New luxurious suites
After five successful years as one of the best hotels in the city, Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona is pleased to announce the addition of 17 spacious and luxurious suites and five additional rooms to its inventory, bringing the total room count to 120.
Located in the modernist building adjacent to the hotel on the city’s most luxurious boulevard, Passeig de Gràcia, the rooms are all easily accessible via the main building. Each of the new rooms and suites range from 44 to 124 square metres, and all have been exquisitely designed with an emphasis on style and space.
The award-winning Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola who created the original hotel, and whose highly regarded designs form part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, was re-commissioned to create the décor for the new rooms, following the same avant-garde and cosmopolitan style that characterises the rest of the hotel.
The new suites evoke an at-home sense of comfort, with exquisite details in the finish combined with exceptional butler service to cater to guest needs. Urquiola has created flexible spaces, using textile screens, Tai-ping carpets and unique pieces of furniture designed exclusively by the Urquiola Studio.
Spacious bathrooms have an elegant, spa-like atmosphere enclosed within light, tinted opaque glass with enormous walk-in showers.
Throughout, bronze highlights pick up the accents of warm, oak wood floors, beautifully finished carpentry frame pale rugs and brightly coloured decorative pieces, while floor-to-ceiling windows juxtapose contrasting pale and dark walls to create an overall look that is spacious, modern and light.
As well as a collection of exclusive pieces created by the Urquiola Studio in Milan, design highlights include lamps by Flos, sofas and tables by Moroso, Husk chairs for B&B, the EMU stools and Mutina mosaics.
Our heart-stopper is probably the flagship Barcelona suite that features a 123 m2 terrace complete with an outdoor Jacuzzi and solarium. Elsewhere the interior works to bring the outside in with terraces that run the length of the building, designed not for views, but as outdoor living space, comfortably furnished by Patricia Urquiola for Kettal.
With these new luxurious suites, Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona offers guests more choice and a unique degree of luxury and exclusivity, all of which re-affirms its position as one of the most prestigious hotels in Europe, with a spectacular location in the heart of the city.
