Hotel Rey Juan Carlos is built on the site of an old farm. All that remains of the farm is the 6 acre garden, which is over a hundred years old and open exclusively to hotel guests. The building itself is a modern 16 storey tower of glass and steel. The hotel has a spa and outdoor swimming pools. The hotel has free outdoor parking (and indoor parking for a fee).
Gardens to visit while staying at Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I include Parque Guell (6 kms) and Mies van der Rohe Pavilion (4 kms).
