Bountiful Barcelona Hotels

By Chris L D Brown

With the warmth of the sun well and truly over, we are faced with a rather strong shift in temperatures, and it's got to that time of year when we have to wrap up with scarves, winter jackets and lets not forget the wellington boots. If us Brits took a second to notice the situation in Barcelona, then we might see a light at the end of this dismal tunnel. Temperatures stay higher for longer in this Spanish city, making the colder months that little bit more bearable. There is a grand selection of Barcelona hotels, so you won't find it hard to find the perfect place.
There is so much to see in Barcelona, you would be quite astounded. Cultural events, which include eclectic displays of music, art and fashion are set up all year round, giving you even more of a reason to visit this beautiful city. A cultural exploration is just what you need to keep your blood pumping, and if you think about it, a holiday is a holiday no matter what time of year you go. You could always pick one of the Barcelona hotels that have a bit more comfort if you want to be cosy and pampered during your trip away. For a bit more indulgence why not stay in a five-star hotel? You could watch the various musical displays and then retreat to the heat of your lusciously luxurious hotel and spoil yourself with a sauna and a spa treatment.

The Princesa Sofia Gran Hotel is a great place to visit if you want to relax to the max. Located in the financial district of Barcelona, this hotel is close to all major amenities. Not that you'll need them though, as this hotel caters with everything in mind. It has an indoor pool, which is perfect if visiting in the winter, and offers spa and hydrotherapy treatments, saunas, beauty services and massages. This is perfect is your looking for a bit of peace and quiet away from manic Britain. The hotel also has 500 climate controlled, sound proofed guestrooms, which are decorated with soft tones and dark wooden furnishings.
Alternatively, for an equally as indulgent and divine setting why not pick the Omm, one of the more modern and boutique Barcelona hotels set in the heart of the city? Here, there are 91 spacious and luminous rooms decorated with warm materials with wooden floors and handmade carpets. There are two restaurants with an extensive wine list and a delicious menu that is constantly on rotation. There's an outdoor pool terrace overlooking the Casa Mila and the Sagrada Familia, making it even more stunning. There is also a spa with aromatherapy (100% natural products), massage service and a heated pool that overlooks the garden, another great addition for your winter break away. You can also enjoy the private garden and library. Five-star living is the ultimate experience to have out of all the Barcelona hotels.
