SHOULD YOU STAY AT THE BARCELONA MANDARIN?
This is what we like about the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Barcelona:
Its privileged location in one of the best avenues of Barcelona, Passeig de Gràcia, makes this hotel a really good choice. It is close to the Gaudí houses and other modernist buildings, great food options and awesome shops. Plus it’s just five minutes walk from Plaça Catalunya and the Old town. Plus amongst all the hotels in Passeig de Gracia, the Barcelona Mandarin Oriental is definitely one of our favorite, together with the Alma Barcelona.
High End Restaurants
The Barcelona Mandarin features 3 wonderful restaurants. Moments is a two Michelin star restaurant managed by Carme Ruscalleda, a lady chef that already accumulates 7 Michelin stars in her restaurants in Spain and Tokio. Her cuisine is based in the Catalan culture, combining fresh food with her natural creativity. At the restaurant Bistreau you’ll taste the cuisine of Ángel León’s, known as the Chef of the Sea, who’s restaurant is of course offering fresh fish and seafood. Finally, La Mesa, managed by Ángel León as well, offers 15-courses tasting menus inspired in the Atlantic ocean and the Mediterranean sea. Ángel León has been awarded with two Michelin stars as well.
The interiors of this awesome Barcelona luxury hotel have been designed by Patricia Urquiola, who combined a Catalan feel and soul with the Asian roots of the hotel brand: light, gold, luxury and modernity together.
Enjoy wonderful panoramic views of the city and its landmarks: Sagrada Família, the W hotel, the Montjuic Hill, the belltowers of the Cathedral… Their exquisite drinks and cocktails can be paired to any of their dishes of Peruvian and Asian touches. Our choice: the white fish ceviche with lime and coriander.
