Hotel Senator Barcelona
Hotel Senator Barcelona

This hotel Spa Senator Barcelona is a little way out of town, near the Camp Nou Barcelona FC football ground, but it's worth staying there for the ambience and facilities of the hotel itself. The pièce de résistance being the hotel's spa which is as inventive and original as a spa can be - perfect for those not so sunny days.

Hotel Facilities

The overriding noise you hear when entering the Hotel Senator is water for the many fountains and water features scattered over the ample lobby area. In the lobby, you will find a café/ bar area with lots of comfortable seating, and a piano for live music in the evening. There is a drinks machine, a cigarette machine and even a cash point. The glass-fronted, turquoise painted restaurant is attractive and has a reasonably priced menu of Mediterranean specialities. Last but not least, the Acquaplaya Spa, which is where you can relax in a grotto-like fruit bath, or a eucalyptus sauna. There is also an outdoor swimming pool which is open during the summer months and has good views over Barcelona.

Our Insider Tip

Nobody likes waiting around in long queues to get their COVID test. The Express COVID testing service we recommend only works by appointment ensuring that you get tested when you need to without having to queue. Getting your COVID test in the city centre before your flight or cruise offers many advantages over getting tested in the Airport or from a cruise liner. You have your certificates on time without a rush, you have time to correct inaccuracies on your certificate and you have time to re-arrange your flight or other travel plans if you should test positive.
