During the summer months this hotel is one of the main hot spots in Barcelona for its unmatched panoramic views and superb location, not to mention its sleek modern décor. With it being so popular during the summer months, spring is the ideal time to visit – with the warmer weather coming closer, the nights starting to get brighter and the city being less crowded you will be sure to get one of the best seats in the house.
