The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Eat Your Way Through Barcelona

Get a suizo to go or jamon to take home with enough time leftover for drinks and strippers.


The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Arts, which features a full-service spa, is close to the historic city center and the sea.   

1. Where to Stay

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Arts (from 355 euros) is a Mediterranean-waterfront luxury box with a startling geometric façade. Rooms on the pricier club floors (30th to 33rd) kick up the already-attentive service with a private lounge and concierge.

If Gaudi delights and modernism seduces, Hotel Casa Fuster (from 250 euros) is an architectural marvel located right on the frontier of two of Barcelona's best barrios, Eixample and Gracia.

Get an apartment through Loquo, a Craigslist alternative for Barcelona rentals. Plot your flat at Vivirama, a Google Maps mash-up.
