I stayed at this hotel for two nights to cover some time between a personal vacation and a business trip. I chose this hotel because it was the most affordable room with an en suite I could find within a certain radius. It's located in the Eixample neighborhood, walking distance to plenty of shopping and restaurants. I stayed in the... More

The hotel was ideally situated for getting to and from most sights either on foot or by public transport. We enquired at the hotel reception as to the best way of getting around and they suggested we invested in a 'Barcelona Card' valid for 3 days about 40euros, which as well as allowing unlimited travel on most transport ( you...

The location is fantastic it's right on the north part of the downtown core of Barcelona, I love how you can walk to Sagrada Familia! Jose Marie is very nice and very friendly!

I took my daughter to Barcelona to show her the Gaudi and this hotel is only a few minutes walk away from Temple Sagrada Familia so I thought we would give it a try. We had a twin room and the bathroom was just as big! Great buffet breakfast and lovely staff. 5* from us!

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.
