We were pleasantly surprised by this little boutique hotel because when we arrived at night there was overflow trash and recyclables outside (it is located on a very busy street}, but this was all removed by morning. The hotel itself was well kept and clean and the front deck staff was extremely helpful with any and all information that we... More

The Gran Ducat is ideally located just two minutes from the Plaza Catalunya and one end of the famous Las Ramblas. It is from here you can board the autobus turistico which will take you to all the main tourist attractions, alternatively you can take the metro from the nearby metro station (3mins walk) or catch one of the many...

We arrived at the Gran Ducat from the Catalunya station via the free Cercanias ticket that comes with the Renfe train ride. Placa Catalunya is buzzing with people, and it can be difficult to navigate your way around, but we finally arrived and checked in to our lovely hotel room. We had a great view of Ronda de Sant Pere,... More

Right beside Place Catalunya and buses and metro and train. Walking distance from lots of things worth seeing and plenty of restaurants and cafes to dine in. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Air conditioning was great in the room. Breakfast was good and kept me going. Yes the noise from the street reached the fifth floor but I still... More

I selected the BCN Urban Gran Ducat because of it's location (close to Placa Catalunya) and the Trip Advisor rating. I took the BCN Aerobus to the hotel and as advertised it was a short walk to the to the hotel from the Placa Catalunya bus stop (I walked over to the side of the street where the Apple Store,...

I used this hotel whilst having a mother daughter weekend earlier this year. The location of this hotel is fantastic, as it is in walking distance of the city centre ( great for shopping trips) It is right over the road el cortes inglis department store ( similar to House of Frasier, or Beatties in the UK). The hotel is... More

Best thing about this hotel is its location. Rooms are compact but functional. Very clean and in reasonable condition. Breakfast is Continental style buffet and more than adequate. We paid £166 for 2 nights B&B which given its location and quality I think gave us great value for money. We had room 606 and had none of the noise issues... More

The brilliance of the staff made up for any minor issues. The location was also excellent, very near to the on off bus stop and las Ramblas. Rooms were clean, but not luxurious. Lifts were an experience, but did manage to work every time.

Stayed with my girlfriend for 4 nights end of May/beginning of June. Staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. Excellent location & nice room. Although it didn't bother me my GF said it was a little noisy - not from outside but from doors slamming and the lift. But nothing major. Would be happy to stay again

We stayed for five nights while exploring Barcelona, the room was spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable, air conditioning was effective and quiet, the water was hot and we had a small balcony over looking the street, the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The main attractions and the beach were within walking distance and it was a short walk... More

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.
