A long weekend in Barcelona 
It might be in the centre of Barcelona, just a 45 second walk from the luxury shopping strip Passeig de Gracia, but the Autograph Collection hotel is an oasis of calm in an urban setting. Housed in a 19th century neoclassical building, which was once the site of the Cotton Textile headquarters (hence the hotel’s name), everything inside is influenced by cotton - even the air-con blows out cotton-infused air. There's also a huge terrace in a typical Spanish courtyard (almost every block has a central courtyard) and a rooftop pool with incredible views of the skyline-dominating Sagrada Familia. If you fancy a relaxing retreat while still experiencing the buzz of Barcelona, this is definitely the hotel for you.
