“While this chic boutique prioritises its cuisine over the hotel factor, it nevertheless inspires with its elegance and no frills decoration. Positioned just outside the old city walls it leads the way in an increasingly hip quarter of the city. A cool, less mainstream destination for foodies. ”

Hotel Review

Arrive at Hotel Market in the Sant Antoni neighbourhood and the emphasis is firmly on the restaurant and bar, which are successful enterprises in their own right, but there are 68 rooms and their occupants help to generate the buzz on the ground floor. The bar, with a plethora of gins etc, is dressed in colonial eastern style and benefits from a small outside terrace. The restaurant with all white linen tablecloths and wooden flooring is a Spanish style brasserie serving a full Mediterranean medley - calamari, paella, gazpacho, pasta, hamburgers etc but it's the fixed menus at 25 and 35 euros including half a bottle of wine and coffee which pulls in the crowds. With all of this, the bedrooms might seem to play second fiddle but they have been carefully thought out, are a good size, quiet, and comfortable. In keeping with the colonial theme they have black panelling, white walls and a splash of red. Good value but book early - stay here for a change from the more touristy Placa Catalunya and Las Ramblas.
