The One Barcelona

An amazing location, great service and the two top suites make The One a strong contender in Barcelona. While the design isn’t always top notch the overall comfort and quality is very good, especially for a first-time visit and busy itinerary in the city.

Stay at The One Barcelona

From a private jacuzzi you look across Barcelona rooftops to the spires of La Sagrada Familia. The soft sounds of city bustle rise up from eight floors below. Head inside, through your black marble bathroom. Now there is silence and you explore the vast library of art and architecture books in your suite. This is The One and you feel like the one with such a privileged location in the city. From the outside it doesn’t look like the most stylish hotel in Barcelona, but there’s a lot to love about The One, not only the iconic Terrace Suite Sagrada Familia and excellent service.


The best city location in Barcelona, between Gaudi’s La Pedrera and La Sagrada Familia. The One is on a quiet crossroads that’s only one block from Passeig de Gracia and two blocks from La Rambla. It’s the area with Barcelona’s best shopping and restaurants, with the beach less than ten minutes away by taxi.


We’d skip the entry-level Cosy and Cosy Barcelona rooms, as they’re a little small and some of the furnishings feel cheap. Go for at least a Junior Suite or Grand Deluxe Terrace instead. Ideally, go for one of the two premium suites with terraces on the eighth floor. The Terrace Suite Sagrada Familia has a jacuzzi with an incredible view to Gaudi’s unfinished masterpiece. The Penthouse Suite is 120 square metres and has a kitchen, along with a jacuzzi and terrace.

Who is it for

Ideal if it’s your first visit to Barcelona because many of the most iconic sights are within walking distance. Perfect if you want to go shopping in Barcelona as well. Families can make use of the interconnecting rooms, including good options to combine two high-category suites.

Facilities & activities

The spa is small and clean, likewise the rooftop pool. We experienced superb service here, above the level we expected. Although, we didn’t think much of the ground-floor restaurant, especially when the area has so many amazing places to dine.
