Great location to see attractions in the city. Near metro. Excellent breakfast. Some of the rooms are a bit small. Very clean hotel. Helpful staff. Nice garden with a minor pool, which is very nice on a hot day.

Upon checking in the first thing that I received, even before the key to my room, was a map of the city and the hop on hop off brochure. The front desk is supper helpful, polite, and overall very nice. The hotel is located a few blocks from la rambla and a few blocks from the Goudi houses. Super expensive... More

Excellent hotel. Very clean hotel with a very hospitable and helpful staff. The breakfast was excellent. I would recommend asking for a room away from the street. Location was OK but somewhat further from main attractions than we would have liked.

We stayed in a 2 BR apartment with a private terrace, living room and small kitchenette. The rooms were beautifully furnished and comfortable and quiet at night (not always easy in Barcelona!). Location was perfect - just a block from main shopping streets, Gaudi buildings and the Metro. Will definitely stay here again the next time in BCN.

We got room on the first floor with window facing the inner wall. The smell was not exactly fresh. Wall are thin, so everything was audible and tobacco smoke drifted in our room. The room was really expensive for what it offered. Wifi is slow and requires logging in every time. Breakfast was nice, but not enough space for all... More

This compact hotel is wonderfully located for exploring Barcelona, rated at 3 stars it goes beyond that in many ways, with a nice attention to detail and good facilities. Staff are good if not spectacular, breakfast is limited but more than satisfactory and the hotel and rooms are appointed in a very contemporary and modern way. There is a limited... 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.
