The room is simple and straight forward in a good location off the main tourist tracks, but in close walking distance to major attractions. The hotel has some of the best wifi I've ever experienced in a hotel room. Good service and great speed. A small mini bar fridge in the room would be nice and forget the "garden view"... More

The location of this hotel was great for our purposes, located very close to numerous restaurants, Gaudi landmarks, Las Ramblas, etc. The furnishings and decor were very contemporary with a green theme. But it is definitely a smaller hotel, as it is fit in to a historic property. We were a party of five across two rooms, with one child.... More

What makes this hotel is the location, you can walk everywhere. We stayed here in July '14 and had a great stay in a family room. Room was very clean, comfortable, and spacious, not fancy. My teenagers did not like that there was no TV but I liked it. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful (A+). Our balcony looked onto... More

Loved this place! The room was large and extremely clean. It is in a very central location. The staff is quite knowledgable and willing to help in any way they can. Despite facing the street we weren't bothered by noise at all.

Our group of ten stayed at the Hostal Grau for three nights in a variety of different room configurations. They were all spacious, airy, spotlessly clean, and had excellent beds.

Almost perfect but there are small little ants in the bathroom and living room. Other than that...it was a perfect stay. Location is very convenience and in shopping area. Hotel itself is a little hard to notice. All in all, it was good.

My sister, mother and I spent seven nights at the Hostal Grau in Barcelona at the end of May. It was an inspired choice. The hotel is beautifully redecorated throughout with simple and sophisticated furnishings and clean, white spaces with traditional ceilings. The bathrooms are gorgeous and spa-like. Our original first floor room was immense and included a huge television... More

The property is just 5 minutes away from La Rambla, which makes it very convenient for a short stay. The place itself is beautiful with amazing rustic design. Our room was also pretty nice, but a bit cold at night and also noisy, because the balcony was facing the lively street. The hotel offers delicious breakfast (if you're ready to... More

My partner and I stayed at Hostal Grau for 6 nights which is known to be a long stay at Barcelona. But it was exactly everything we wanted.
