Good location, too costly for the service you get. It is rated four star but you get three star service for a five star price.very near subway station few minutes walk from Ramblas. Lots of restaurants in the vicinity.

I stayed on night at the Catalonia Diagonal Centro. Overall a good standard. It was not good value for money, but I guess it has to do with the fact that I found myself needing a hotel in the city in the middle of F1 weekend. Good room size, very large bed, and in my case, a nice pool view.... More

Nice 4* hotel with helpful, friendly staff. Very comfy king size beds and very clean rooms. A short walk down either Rambla de Catalunya or Passeig de Gracia (both nice streets with shops and pavement cafes) and your right in the main square, Plaza de Catalunya. Very close to the Metro if not wanting to walk. Would definately consider staying... 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.
