With a surface area ranging from 28 to 145 sqm, accommodation options cover a wide range of rooms and suites including:

Its decoration harmoniously blends luxury, comfort and refinement to guarantee its guests a top-of-the-range stay. It is equipped with a king-size bed (or two queen-size beds), a marble bathroom with separate shower and bathtub, a large desk and a flat-screen television. It is perfect for a couple with a small child.

Upscale to discover the 70 sqm Signature Corner Suite. Recently refurbished and modernised, this suite, which lets in plenty of light, overlooks Barcelona and the Royal Polo Club. It features a marble spa-style bathroom with separate shower and bathtub, a large desk and two flat-screen TVs. Ideal for families with children, it is also perfect for those who simply wish to enjoy more space.

The Presidential Suite. Located on the 14th floor, it offers an absolutely incredible view of the hotel’s 25,000 sqm of gardens. With its 120 sqm, it is one of the largest suites in the hotel.

In addition to offering all the necessary amenities for a pleasant stay (terry cloth bathrobes, slippers, safe, minibars, Le Labo toiletries, etc.), the Fairmont Barcelona Rey Juan Carlos I is especially designed to pamper families. On request, it is therefore possible to have a cot (or an extra bed) installed in the room, for example, but also to rent a DVD player to have a good time together or to make use of the hotel’s babysitting service. Please note that many rooms can be connected by connecting doors. Everything has therefore been thought out to welcome the most demanding families and satisfy the least of their needs.



A buffet breakfast is served every morning in the hotel’s dining room.

To enjoy delicious typical dishes, visit the B-24. With its stunning décor and gourmet cuisine, this restaurant, masterfully run by chef Claudio Aguirre, offers a menu deeply rooted in Spanish culinary traditions. With a fine local and international wine list and live music on weekends, this restaurant guarantees an unforgettable lunch or dinner. Please note that children under the age of 2 who stay at the hotel eat here for free!

The hotel bar, The Terrace, is the perfect place to wake up with a good coffee, treat the children to a snack or sip a cocktail at sunset.

Finally, don’t forget that Barcelona is full of great places to eat for all budgets. From tapas to starred restaurants, from family-friendly addresses to high-end brands, there’s something for everyone. Need some help?
