Hot hotels, designer coffee shops and top tips for a Moroccan holiday
In the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic quarter lies palm-tree-populated Plaça del Duc de Medinaceli, a splendid square that is now home to the new outpost of Soho House. Every nook and cranny of the 19th-century building is rendered comfy and colourful and a thread of Catalan design runs throughout, with high vaulted ceilings, Spanish textiles and glossy locally made tiles. Make the most of the glorious facilities, which include a Cowshed spa, a rooftop pool and Cecconi’s restaurant– an offshoot of the London original. From £190 per night (sohohousebarcelona.com).
