First of all hotel and the rooms are a bit old. The only good part with the hotel is the cleanliness of the hotel. Sleep quality is good but expect to wake up early due to the noises from outside. It is well located and close to the best parts of Barcelona so if you want to have a short... More

Well appointed, with modern feel and pleasant, friendly staff. A short walk from the Arc de Triomf, so easy to reach by metro. Walkable from many main attractions. Room slightly tired, but very clean and perfectly acceptable. Happy to recommend.

This modern,chic hotel is well-located in Barcelona. The rooms are well-appointed yet small. The breakfast buffet and lobby area were fantastic. The best feature is the rooftop pool and workout area with sweeping views of Barcelona.

I stayed at this hotel with the specific purpose of lying by the pool all Saturday and it did not disappoint. I arrived late and had no issues with check-in. My pool-side burger was delicious (I still think about it months later). The staff directed me to the area of Born nearby and I found a nice dinner in a... More

This is a great hotel a few blocks away from arc de triumph, barri gotic, and chocolate museum. Also two blocks away from metro line l1. The staff were great even supplied a charger at 12 am. The kitchen was accommodating and the elegance of the superior room unique!

I stayed in three NH Hotels in Barcelona, and this was the best. It was also the only 4 star, in the interest of full disclosure. I had a cute Superior room that was very spacious, with high ceilings and adequate outlets for your devices.

After staying at a four star hotel at the other side of town with poor pillows and a hard mattress, I was pleasantly surprised when I came to stay at the NH Hotel Podium. I stayed here for two nights. The hotel looked like it had been recently refurbished and was clean and modern looking. I stayed in room 207.... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
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.
