The hostel is not so small, but the rooms are, at least our double room. Toilets on the corridor are also a lithe inconvinience, especially whene the neighbours are not cleaning after using it. The breakfast was OK as for the hostel, some toasts, some cheese and ham, jam and fruits, drinks , also juices. There is an elevator which... More

this is a budget sparse but respectable little hotel literally only a one minute walk to las ramblas center and the underground - metro yet it is on a quiet side street and the rear rooms as i had are very quiet. the price is budget for this area. the only downside is that the rooms are very tiny and...

Efficient staff, adequate breakfast items, available kitchen facilities, quiet and convenient location. The location is in a central part of Barcelona, walking distance from the metro, the shops of Passeig de Gracia and the touristy Avinguda Diagonal. You can walk to the Manzana de la Discordia modernist houses and Sagrada Familia. Finding the residencia might be difficult at first as... More

Our flight arrived late to the city and by the time we had we were hot and sweaty. The receptionist greeted us and immediately offered us a glass of cold water. Check in was a breeze and we were then led to our room. The room was simple, just a small room with two single beds. However, there was also... More

I stayed at the Residencia for 3 weeks in a single room and highly recommend it. The staff are awesome, very friendly, informative, and dedicated to their guests. The room was very simple, but was what I wanted as it was cost effective and conducive to doing work. I lived on a floor with a very nice terrace that was... More

Just returned from a trip to Barcelona with a friend. We stayed at the lovely Residencia, in Gracia. While it is a little away from the busy centre of the city, it is only two minutes walk from Gracia metro. The rooms were large, clean and while they were not ensuite (hence the bargain price) they had everything else you... More

Staying in Gracia

Neighborhood Profile
Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the center, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theater that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
