Hotel Sofia Barcelona to join The Unbound Collection

Hotel Sofia Barcelona is to join The Unbound Collection by Hyatt in January.

The 465-room property is located in central Barcelona and owned and managed by Selenta Group.

Launched in 2016, The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand comprises unique and independent properties for the modern traveller.

“Hotel Sofia Barcelona is an exciting project for Hyatt as it provides us with entry into a market that is in high demand and strengthens the overall offering of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand,” said Maria Ashton, development director, Europe for Hyatt.

“The hotel’s rich history coupled with contemporary and luxurious design perfectly fits the brand’s promise of creating story-worthy and unforgettable experiences.”


Opened as Barcelona’s first five-star hotel in 1975, Hotel Sofia Barcelona offers a rich history and a stunning space to enjoy relaxation, creativity and contemporary luxury.

Named after Princess Sofia of Greece and Denmark, wife to the former King of Spain Juan Carlos I, Hotel Sofia Barcelona has enjoyed distinction as the host of many heads of states and was well known as Queen Sofia’s home while she was in Barcelona.

Recent and extensive renovations have further enhanced the hotel, cementing its position as an undisputable benchmark for a refined stay.

With the promise to provide the highest quality and unique experiences, the hotel boasts 465 sophisticated rooms, luxurious suites, five distinct gastronomic spaces, an exclusive live-demonstration dining experience, and luxury relaxation offerings.

The leisure facilities include an elegant Mediterranean-inspired spa, a tropical garden pool and state-of-the-art fitness centre.

Hotel Sofia Barcelona is located in an upscale and prime neighbourhood on Avenida Diagonal, one of Barcelona’s main avenues in the heart of the city.

“We are delighted to work with Hyatt to bring this exclusive and modern hotel as part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand.

“We expect our presence and reputation in Barcelona and neighbouring cities will ensure Hotel Sofia Barcelona flourishes under this brand,” said Jordi Mestre, executive president, Selenta Group.

Hotel Sofia Barcelona will be an exciting addition to the steadily expanding portfolio within The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, joining the newly opened Nish Palas in Istanbul and the iconic Hôtel Martinez in Cannes.
