Room size was ample for two. Clean, well-appointed and very comfortable twin beds. Service at this hotel was very good. Staff were always accommodating, knowledgeable and helpful. It was a little too cool to try out rooftop pool, but we did enjoy cocktails and appetizers up there and it was lovely. WIfi was a little complicated and service was a... More

This is a reasonably good hotel, comparable say to a Courtyard Mariott or something like that in the US. Breakfast was actually amazing and more like a 5 star, but the hotel itself is like a 3.5 or 4 star. I was traveling for business, so it was perfectly suitable for me. But if you are with a family, please... More

We truly couldn't ask for more: extremely nice and cozy place, rich & fresh breakfast, very comfortable location (there are 3 metro stations near by and you can easily get to Catalunya square, just in a few minutes of walk). All in all, GREAT VALUE for money > made our vacation just perfect!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Very good location but quit since the corner is out off hustle. Anyway, there is good sound insulation in all rooms. Very accurate and delicate room service trays. There is one big bottle of water every day. Very kind people in the hotel reception.

Arrived at 12:00 but could only use my room as from 15:00 or had to pay 15 euro extra. You can't drink the water from the tap and there was only 1 small bottle in the mini-bar costing 3 euro. So for 2 persons the additional costs for water will be on average 15 euro/day The restaurant was only open... More

Very central located is this nice hotel with walking distance to everything in Barcelona. Staff was very friendly and professional, the design and architecture not so square but thrilling. The rooms are clean and ok. Bathroom very good, the bed a little bit hard but that's normal in southern Europe. Wifi very slow but free of charge. Swimming pool on... More

Nice clean and smart modern hotel with great facilities, including a great rooftop pool, sundeck and bar. Nice rooms with really comfortable beds. Good location between La Rambla and La Sagrada Familia. Only real issue is the noisy doors - as the place is largely marble floors, the banging doors echo around the whole place, and you can hear them... 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.
