Right on Passeig de Gràcia, opposite La Pedrera, Suites Avenue is ideal for shoppers and lovers of Gaudí.
The apartments are spacious and contain sitting rooms and fully equipped kitchens, not to mention priceless antique artworks (owner Jordi Clos is a fervent Egyptologist). Primitive materials such as wood and leather are fused with brickwork, marble and fur throws to create something startlingly original.
Eating and drinking
There is a small fitness area and plunge pool on the first floor, with space and loungers for sunbathing.
It's self-catering, so you probably won't have too many dealings with staff, but there's always someone on the front desk, and they give a good concierge service should you need a personal shopper, a babysitter or help organising an excursion.
