With a century of history behind it, the Majestic, owned by the Soldevila-Casals, family has witnessed many important political, cultural and historical events. This unique establishment is rich in character, conveying the essence of luxury and comfort to perfection through meticulous attention to detail.

Located in the heart of the city, Passeig de Gracia, the property stands on a neoclassical building that has become one of the emblems of the city. The five-star luxury hotel is an iconic representation of the city's rich history, modernist lifestyle, fine architecture, and culture. It features stunning views of some of the city's most beautiful buildings designed by eminent architects such as Gaudí, Puig i Cadafalch and Domènech i Montaner. Renowned for its lively charm, luxurious hospitality, floral decorations, stained glass windows and wrought-iron balconies, the hotel is a singular work of art in and of itself. Majestic Hotel welcomes visitors with an endless range of cultural and leisure activities, which will delight those looking to explore this distinctive city.
The hotel is a collection of 272 spacious rooms, suites and penthouses renovated and enlarged in 2013. The unique architectural distribution of the building makes each room a one-of-a-kind space.

Art & Culture
This Majestic Experience departs from the normal tourist circuit and introduces the "Remarkable Residences" project, which allows guests to discover some of the city's least recognized, yet most impressive modernist houses. These residences were inhabited by collectors who were also lovers of interior design and art, offering a cultural opportunity available to only a few guests. Included are places such as the Rocamora Private Cultural Foundation, an Elizabethan mansion that houses a private collection of unique works of art from Spain, Europe, and part of the Americas, or the Casa Amatller, a landmark designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, an artistic contemporary of Antoni Gaudí, which has preserved the original 1900 furniture. The culmination of the experience includes a private dinner, surrounded by art and history, held in the dining room of one of the houses. Barcelona is a city with a long and impressive architectural history, revealed all along its avenues and in the buildings belonging to the Catalan gentry.
The iconic hotel offers its guests both luxury and wellness through an elevated spa experience in collaboration with Natura Bissé and Hora Sexta; brands recognized for their scientific innovation, as well as their passion for natural ingredients within the luxury cosmetics sector. After receiving the award in 2018 and 2019, Natura Bissé was once again named World’s Best Spa Brand in 2020. Located on the top floor of the hotel, the spa includes a wide range of treatments for men and women seeking the latest advancements in the world and aesthetics, wellness, and beauty. The new menu welcomes the summer season with the hydrotherapy experience, Majestic Spa Signature treatment, and personalized massages bringing together the therapeutic benefits of natural, stimulating, and detoxifying products and equipment.
When it comes to Majestic Hotel & Spa's culinary offering, Michelin Star gastronomy is the signature specialty of the hotel. Michelin-star chef, Nandu Jubany, heads the kitchen staff attending to Majestic's three gourmet eateries. Restaurant SOLC, located on the 1st floor, was designed as a tribute to the local produce used in Catalonian cuisine throughout history, offering local, seasonal, Mediterranean dishes prepared with the finest quality ingredients, delighting even the most selective palates.
