Having booked the hotel at a very cheap price, I was not expecting a lot. But I was pleasantly surprised to see that the rooms were quite clean. We were given new towels, shower gels and shampoos everyday. The hotel is only three blocks away from Passieg de Gracia and the metro stations. The beach is about a 20 minute... More

After having booked and all was confirmed, I received an e-mail "2 days" before my arrival that said my booking was canceled. I will go back to Barcelona but definitely will never try to book this hotel as they left me and my friends stranded. When they refunded the money they did not give me the full amount!!

Pros: Reasonably close to metro - about four city blocks to de Gracia Metro. Clean room and bathroom. Helpful staff. Reasonably priced. Cons: Very noisy, Mallorca street is an ambulance route, bring ear plugs. Our bathroom was supposed to be shared with one other room - instead it was shared by the whole hotel. Very difficult to get in in... More

03-09 April 2015 I write this review from the perspective of wanting a decent low price hotel, with modern amenities and facilities. My stay of six days in April 2015 was a joy and I was happy to spend £370 for six nights. If you are looking for a top range hotel, or something quite luxurious you will probably need... More

This hostel was located near to a metro and getting around Barcelona from this base was very easy. The hostel itself was clean and spacious though very basic - but doesn't pretend to be anything more than that. The shared bathroom wasn't an issue at the time we went but may be during busy periods. The lift in this hostel... More

Perfect location, perfect stuff, always ready to help. If you have any questions you are always welcome ------ The lift is not going up/down if someone forgot to close the doors. So we had to climb up to 5th floor by foot several times - going down is much easier in this case, but still not satisfying. The ceiling of... 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.
