We stayed in this hotel only one night while we were visiting Barcelona. Overall a positive experience. Hotel location is ideal for tourists. At the corner of Passeig de Gràcia and Rossello, and very close to two Gaudi landmarks - Casa Mila and Casa Batllo. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was reasonably friendly. Free tea and other hot beverages... More

We stayed in this hotel 3 nights and it was just perfect. The hotel is located next to one of the main streets of Barcelona city center and next to a subway station, making it easy to navigate through the city. The receptionists are welcoming and efficient - there was an issue with the air conditioning but it was fixed... More

The location was quite good and they offer free breakfast which is fairly good (nothing hot but a nice spread). They also were fine with us bringing a bottle of wine and snacks into the dining area after hours to consume and play cards. The rooms were large and very clean.

Very nice, modern, spacious and clean rooms on the corner of Passeig de Gracia. The hotel is amids shops, cafes and restaurants. De famous Passeig de Gracia is only 50 meters away with its upscale shopping area, Ramblas is a 10 minute walk away. very reasonable price so absolute value for money

Great value hotel which is immaculately clean. No storage in the rooms to put clothing. Breakfast was good but items were consistently missing with guests having to ask for things to be replenished. Overall great location and we would stay again. Good value for money

The Property A small, boutique hotel in a boutique part of the city. At the corner are designer shops to start your stroll down Passeig de Gracia! The Metro is at the corner so traveling to other parts of Barcelona are easy. The lobby is not huge but will suffice for meeting people before tapas or dinner. The breakfast space... More

I went to Barcelona to visit my daughter who is studying abroad. The locations was excellent, halfway between her apartment and school. The area is beautiful on Passeig de Gracia where all the upscale shops are located. The room overlooked Rossello street and was a bit noisy. Very clean and modern accommodations. Only complaint would be spotty wifi.

Located close to Gracia district and close to many attractions. Pedrera just around the corner or even from the window. Breakfast good. Overall --- excellent value hotel!... More

There are so many hotels in Barcelona, it's hard to decide. The ones in the centre are always more expensive and most charge upwards of €200. But the Actual is very central, on the Paseo de Gracia, modern enough with great rooms, and all for about €100. Give yourself a treat and ask for the Superioir rooms, because the hotel's... More
