They are often decorated based on a theme, or following a personal concept or philosophy. 

This is why staying at a boutique hotel can enhance your trip to Spain. And the offer of luxury boutique hotels in Barcelona is BROAD! Sometime it can be difficult to navigate and find exactly what you need, a place that matches your style and budget. But we get you covered! Our curated list of the best Barcelona boutique hotels will help you sort out which are the best for you in a quick read!
