Located in a historic building, Majestic Hotel & Spa is one of the most historically rich hotels of the Catalan capital, perfectly situated in the middle of the elegant Paseo de Gracia in the Quadrat d’Or where you find the city’s most beautiful buildings designed by Gaudí, Puig i Cadafalch or Domènec i Montaner, a true outdoor museum with surprising architecture. The hotel began forging its reputation over ninety-five years ago, was a protagonist in great historic moments and played host to major social, cultural, political and artistic figures. The founder Martín Casals was great-grandfather of the current owners. Today, the third generation of the Soldevila-Casals family just completed the most recent and ambitious renovation phase, which respected the Majestic’s past and history all the while looking towards the future.
Hotel Majestic became the first establishment in the Catalan capital to house a Michelin starred restaurant: the reputable Drolma. It also became the first to have the largest art collection in the city with over one thousand works of art! Many artists such as Pablo Ruíz Picasso or Joan Miró have spent time in the salons or stayed in the hotel. This close relationship with art can be seen throughout the collection of over one thousand paintings, sculptures and other works of art adorning the walls of “The Hotel of the Arts”. Since the last renovation this incredible artistic ensemble have returned to their rightful place both in the public spaces and private rooms. So every room is unique yet they are all decorated in the same brown, white and beige tones, and the most demanding clients will be able to choose from the forty-seven suites. Outdoor pool boasts spectacular views. The incredible terrace offers a scenic view of all the city’s emblematic architectural symbols such as the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló, Agbar Tower or the Tibidabo. At El bar del Majestic, all of Barcelona’s leading figures meet for a magnificent wine list filled with Cavas, Champagnes and a large selection of wines by the glass. With the helpful advice of bar director Alexandre Peyrad, wine connoisseurs and amateurs alike can savor excellent crus, including unique and exclusive wines, from prestigious appellations and small local winemakers changing seasonally.
The exceptional artistic decor and environment at the Majestic place it in a unique category, an absolute must-see.
