Very good central location, it is also very close to Passeig de Gracia and Plaza Catalunya. The rooms are medium-size, the bed is comfortable and at nighttime it is very calm (my room was facing the inner court). The pool is quite small and, despite the sign "shower before entry", few hotel guests take a shower before diving in... in... More

Let it be stated that I had reserved and prepaid my stay at their sister hotel – TWO by Axel, back in April and 24 hours before my departure to Barcelona, I got an e-mail saying my reservation at TWO was canceled. After calling Expedia, the whole thing was arranged; our 5-night hotel reservation was transferred to an ‘upgrade’ at... More

But it's not, it's not bad either what lets it down is the flakey service and small things. Firstly it's clean brilliantly located the bar and pool are fantastic but we had a few minor issues which just take the shine away. Breakfast is average it's there and it's ok but don't expect a plethora of anything exotic one chafing... More

A friend of mine stayed here in April when he was in town with his show, and highly recommended this hotel. However, I was traveling with a small mixed group and we had already booked a Barcelona apartment. We did check out the rooftop bar on a Thursday night though, and we were so glad we did. It was a...

The hotel is in a good location not far from a Metro station and near plenty of bars and restaurants. Also it is perfectly located to visit Barcelona's many tourist attractions and museums.

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.
