This small, central Barcelona hotel lived up to all the reports we read. Polite, helpful staff, modern clean rooms, excellent breakfast, very quiet rooms. Located just around the corner from Passeig de Gracia, it is close to transport, upmarket shopping and lots of great restaurants and bars. Definitely would consider staying here again.

I booked a different hotel in Barcelona which had some problems the night before my stay, so they booked me a room in this hotel. The location was great - far enough away from things that it was quiet and that you felt like you had a little distance but close enough that everything was walkable (I was able to... More

I stayed here on a recent weekend after being in the city for a few days on business. Overall, I found the hotel a very good base to explore the city from. Located in an upscale shopping area, and a few minutes walk away from a restaurant area with lovely squares and dining options. The hotel itself is priced for... More

Hotel Actual is a small boutique hotel located close to the Diagonal, just off P de Garcia, and just around the corner from one of Barcelona's architectural wonders - Gaudi's Casa Mila, popularly known as the "Pedrera". The rooms are beautifully designed, in white and gray, with big comfortable beds and large, luxurious bathrooms. An electric kettle and assortment of... More

Without knowing too much about hotels in Barcelona chose this one as did not want to be pitched in with crowds near Plaza Cataluya or Ramblas. It is at the top end of the expensive shopping street of Passeig de Gracia in fact next door to Stella McCartney's store and opposite a swanky hotel Omm. We had a great room... More

I stayed in Hotel Actual for 1 night in February 2015. Had a great experience. It's a small hotel with rather small rooms but very comfortable and I had everything I needed. Hotel staff very helpful and friendly. Location is absolutely prime. You just walk out and you are in Passeig de Gracia and you have a metro station right... More

This is in the Eixample, about a block from Gaudi's Casa Mila. We stayed six nights, so they gave us a good room. Very quiet, comfortable, clean. The location is great because Barcelona is very walkable. Many folks on the street, even late at night. Near many restaurants and fancy shops, walking distance to Sagrada Familia. Ramblas and Bari Gothic... More

Once I stashed my luggage and securely placed my items in the room safe, we were off to to explore the city. The location was perfect and we walked all the way down to the waterfront.

When considering hotels & resturants that we have reviewed formost in mind is the price, quality, value ratio. The Actual does really get full marks and it's location can not be bettered. Stylish, extremely comfortable, good service, you could pay awfully more and not have the quality of the Actual. We could not recommend this hotel more highly.

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.
