Great location on Passeig de Gracia, outstanding staff and service. Hotel Arts and W are very large properties on the water, and you must take a cab to go anywhere. Mandarin Oriental is walking distance to many sights, shopping, and popular restaurants.

We stayed here in early August, which is when vacations start in Spain, and on a weekend... so maybe the construction others have referenced was dormant during our stay. We did see the scaffolding next door. The service here was fantastic and the location second to none - just a few blocks from Placa Catalunya and located on one of... More

There is construction and heavy noise next door. Impossible to sleep late in the morning. Crane over the terrasse pool. Not good enough for the money they ask. The interior dezign is good, but the rooms are small and the view is not very inspiring.

I stayed at this hotel for 7 nights from the 9th of July. I was traveling with my two daughters ages 18 and 20. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels and this is NOT a 5 star hotel. We arrived in the evening and were shown to our room. The room had an air cleaner in it as... More

Location Perfect location. It is located at the centre of Passeig de Gracia which you can find most of the hi-end boutiques in Barcelona. Two Gaudi buildings are on the same street as the hotel, of which Casa Batllo is only 3 minutes walk from the hotel. You can always find a taxi in front of the hotel (it takes... More

I booked this hotel because of a recommendation by one of my friends who told me that it was fabulous. You are paying top dollar and have very high expectations. The hotel property is immaculate and our room was very impressive. It is very sleek and the interior design is WOW. We arrived at the hotel at 11am and were... More

I have stayed in Mandarin Oriental hotels all over the world, and have been always impressed by them. This hotel is beyond disappointing. Rooms are the size of cabins on a cheap ocean liner, Room views terrible, and rooms themselves, try to be Barcelone ultra modern- but have failed in the design. Could not wait to get out of this...

We stayed here in June and it was our first time staying at a Mandarin Oriental. We were very happy with our pick. The interior of the hotel is very unique and art deco and a perfect fit for Barcelona. However the service is really what stood out as excellent.. The most important was that the concierge was beyond helpful.... More

First, the positives: The Oriental is on a wonderful street, filled with the finest high end shopping in all of Barcelona. It is safe, convenient, and surrounded by outstanding restaurants, which is simple to do, as Barcelona is a food city. There are not one, but TWO Gaudi buildings to tour on this street, and they are amazing! The hotel... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
