The hotel has a luxurious feel from the moment you walk into the chandelier-adorned lobby. However unlike in many high-class establishments the staff are friendly, helpful and not in the least bit intimidating.
The Hotel Majestic has 303 rooms, including 30 suites, and can count diverse characters such as famed writer Mario Vargas Llosa and the Dalai Lama as past guests. The classic rooms are about 20m2 and have a queen size bed, a mini-bar, a safe, internet, TV with pay per view, and marble bathrooms with hair dryer.

There is also a gym with a free personal trainer at your disposal, a pool bar, a sauna and a steam room, and you can even book a massage to help you wind down from a busy day in Barcelona.
