The elegant library is stocked with oversized jars of sweeties to satisfy the need for sugar, whatever the time Book Ottoman, one of only five suites, which is marked by its impressive black leather door, historic decorative ceiling and tall windows. You’ll greeted by a rainbow of homemade macarons, right next to your not- mini bar.
The beauty of this vibrant city is that you can explore the sights so easily on foot, while tripping from snatched tapas to Michelin stars Brides, that meant a 40-minute lunchtime wait at Cal Pep’s bar in Plaça les Olles because everyone says it’s worth it. It was. The freshest seafood drowns in flavour and spice, and is served with a backdrop of brotherly banter between the now-famous owners. Dinner was at the more refined and architecturally impressive Blanc at Mandarin Oriental. Endless courses arrived, each more mouthwatering than the last, before we were finally undone by Basil – a sponge cake soaked in butterscotch and basil ice cream.
