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.

Everything was good from the start to the end: modern design, clean, service,room, bathroom, FREE and excellent wi-fi everywhere in the hotel. This hotel is good for both business and tourism in BCN. 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

We stayed on the 6th floor, the top floor, facing the street. Was quiet with a great view. Location close to great restaurants on rambla de catalunya and walkable to gothic area... More

My teenage daughter and I just spent 4 days at this fabulous little hotel in central Barcelona. We could walk almost everywhere we wanted to go, the rooms were beautifully decorated and the breakfast that was included in the room rate was served from 7:30am until 11:00am - perfect for yet lagged Americans! The front desk people all spoke great... More

We had a lovely suite on the 5th floor, overlooking Rossello road, with a lovely little balcony. The room was spacious, comfortable and modern and cleaned well. The location is fantastic for exploring the city and right on the Diagonal Metro stop. Our highlight was the friendly reception we got from the lady at reception upon arrival - she quickly... More

The Actual hotel has an excellent location right on passage de Gracia and about 20m from the metro. A very safe area. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The rooms are modern snd well designed with beautifully luxurious towels. Ask for a room on an upper room with a view. The rooms in front face a view of the... More

This is the second time we've stayed here and we love it. Perfect position just off Passeig de -Gracia. We get a room overlooking the back of La Pedrera which is quieter than looking onto P. de Gracia. The room is perfect with facilities for making tea or coffee and also a mini bar. The reception staff are very nice... More
