Clean, comfy room w windows onto street. Some nights had lots of people noise from street, but not bad w windows closed. Great location, free map at front desk, 2 min walk to bkfst cafes, dinner/tapas places 5 mins up the street (las Euras = very good). Walked to sagrada famillia and gothic quarter, near bus to park Guell.

I happened to stay in this "Hotel" for just one night recently, as I had to catch my flight on the next morning quite early. Given that I only planned to stay for not even 12 hours I was prepared not to arrive in a luxuries place. However, even with my low expectations, this place should be avoided by any... More

My boyfriend and I picked this hotel/hostel primarily based on location and price. But had we known that it would have these issues we probably would have stayed elsewhere. There is a little bar/tapas place right across the little street and you literally heard every conversation and EVERY footstep going up and down the street. Also we are on the... More

The hotel has minimal facilities (we didn't expect a lot of luxury for the price) but it was perfect for us. The rooms are cleaned every day and are very neat. The location is great! It is only 5-10 minutes from the Ramblas and there are restaurants, bars and (cheap) supermarkets in the near vicinity. Only downside was the heat,... More

This hotel is very well located for exploring the City and is close to the Metro. The Aerobus stops just up the road. A compact hotel with 64 rooms. Check in was easy and all the staff we dealt with were polite. The Hotel itself is clean and well maintained. We had Room 306 which looks out over the main... More

The room was clean, as the hotel in general, polite staff, very nice stay. Next to a metro station, so that everything in town is easy to reach. I really suggest this hotel for your stay in Barcelona.

This a good example of how to set up a hotel with a very tight budget. I don’t have anything against Iow-cost furnitures and minimalism, but I think a hotel never should have the look of a hospital room: you feel more like a patient than like a tourist! It would be easily repaired with a pair of warm light... More

I stayed in BCN Urban Bonavista for 3 days in a room that I bought as a single for a very modest price. I was surpise by the sixe of the room. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The only really bad point for me was the noises coming from outside, one sunday I could not sleep for one guy... More

Staying in Gracia

Neighborhood Profile
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the center, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theater that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
