Built in 1904, and then known as the Casa Garriga Nogues, this historical building in the Eixample district, is today one of Barcelona's finest hotels. The stained glass windows and coffered ceilings of the Petit Palace Museum Hotel are the first things that strike guests upon entering the lobby. Rooms and suites of this exquisite hotel are equally memorable, featuring avante-garde design, spacious living areas, and luxuriously appointed en-suites. The immediate neighbourhood is a joy to explore, with a myriad of restaurants, bars, and boutiques, all rubbing shoulders with some of Europe's best preserved gothic architecture. Be sure to visit some of the city's remarkable museums and galleries, particularly the Picasso Museum, where one of the worlds biggest collection of Picasso's artworks is to be found.
