Occupying the building in the vibrant Barrio Gótico where Pablo Picasso had his first studio, the Serras Barcelona brings a modern interpretation of Barcelona’s Art Nouveau heritage into its vision of an elegant boutique hotel.
The Serras Hotel Barcelona has transformed the 18th-century townhouse into a sleek urban retreat with a trendy atmosphere, world-class amenities, and dedicated personal service.
The urban chic of the Serras Hotel Barcelona comes through in different ways throughout the hotel.
The vast reception area has a feel of an industrial warehouse converted into an upmarket loft, the rooms and suites introduce smart urban chic that seems to mix New York look with contemporary Catalan style, and the rooftop terrace has a minimalist vibe.
In tribute to Barcelona’s industrial past, Designer Eva Martínez used iron, wood, and traditional black and white tiles, enriched with an occasional Art Deco glamour, all paired with the best quality accessories.
The twenty-eight rooms are large, chic and comfortable, and come with balconies that offer a front-row seat to a trendy neighborhood, with its Port Vell.
The interiors feature luxury bathtubs by Italian designer Rexa, rain showers inset with soft lighting by Hansgrohe, and designer beds. They also come with the latest tech, including a complimentary Wi-Fi, smart HD TV, and the wireless sound system.

The fashionable Rooftop El Sueño is a decked chill-out spot with a plunge pool, olive trees, and sensational port views. It’s a perfect hangout for cocktails by the pool, but it also is a great setting for a serene breakfast or other meals.
That said, Informal, the restaurant in the lobby run by the Michelin-Starred Chef Marc Gascons steals the limelight with inventive interpretations of traditional Catalan and Mediterranean cuisine.
There is also the 24-hour mezzanine bar Le Nine, which overlooks the lobby and restaurant, and which magically transforms from a midmorning coffee hub to a vibrant late-night destination for cocktails and DJs.
The guests of Serras Barcelona enjoy expansive views of the port from the front of the hotel and the medieval streets and gargoyles of the Barrio Gótico from the back. It’s a great location from which to explore Barcelona.
