HOTEL MAJESTIC REVIEW: PROS AND CONS
This is our Hotel Majestic opinion:
Location, location, location
Isn’t it one of the most important things when choosing a hotel? Well, the location of the Majestic Hotel is unbeatable: located right in the center of Passeig de Gràcia, the main street of Barcelona, between two Gaudi masterpieces: Casa Batlló one block down, and Casa Milà (La Pedrera) two blocks up). There are plenty of great food options in the area, and all the shopping you’ll need. Also, being located in a wide central avenue, reaching it by car or taxi isn’t a problem (unlike for many hotels of the Old Town located in narrow alleys where most taxi drivers will refuse to enter). The area is also very safe, you are one block away from the train station connecting with the airport and the L3 subway line taking you to La Rambla, the Old Town, Montjuic and the FC Barcelona Stadium, and 3 blocks from L5 taking you to Sagrada Familia – although most of the time you’ll prefer just walking as most sites aren’t really that far. The Tourist Bus also stops by, and the Bus #24 taking you to Park Guell stops also nearby.
The Spa of the Barcelona Hotel Majestic is a dream for all massage lovers. Detox, relaxing, anti-aging, invigorating… They also have a signature collection of premium packages or rituals, including ancient Hawaian and Morocquian techniques, services for couples and a “little princess” manicure and chocolate shake for your young daughter. And if you have 3 days to spend pampering yourself, make sure to book the Dr. Perricone Anti-Aging Pack including full board at the restaurant of the hotel, 3 facial rituals and access to the hotel solarium, fitness center and outdoor rooftop pool. My only complain is that the hotel spa features only a small water circuit to be used only as a private service.
When I’m traveling, after my hard day sightseeing I love to splurge sipping on a lovely drink while watching the sun setting over the city skyline. Don’t you? The rooftop of the Majestic hotel is one of the best places in town to do that. It has a great cocktail bar and a neat pool, and views over the city featuring Sagrada Familia and the unique AGBAR tower, that lits up at night. Bonus point: it is open all year around (most hotel rooftop terraces in Barcelona close after the Summer is over). Oh, and if you are coming in the Summer, they organize live music and DJ sessions every Friday evening.

Chef Nandu Jubany
Michelin-star Chef Nandu Jubany was born in the Osona county, in the countryside, what definitely marked his passion for local produce and authentic food, and his will to honor tradition but upgrade it respectfully with the use of new technologies and a touch of fusion and haute cuisine. He runs the restaurants of the hotel: Condal for the breakfast buffet, the snacks and light meals served at the Dolce Vitae bar at the rooftop, the classic Bar del Majestic where he supervises the pastries, salads and sweets served with your drinks and of course the Restaurant del Majestic, serving breakfast, brunch and lunch. Very close by, in a cozy alley connecting Passeig de Gràcia and Rambla Catalunya, he runs his signature restaurant: Petit Comité, serving memorable lunches and dinners.
