Celebrating our anniversary in Barcelona, we stayed in this hotel. It's somehow near Catalunya sq., 10-15 min walk. It's in a good location, just around the corner there is a street full of restaurants & bars. The hotel is very clean & always smells great everywhere, lobby, corridor, rooms...etc. staff are nice & friendly & explain everything thoroughly (speaks English... More

Check in, efficient and room ready even though it was only 11.30am. Room comfortable, enormous bed! Only negatives,just one english speaking channel on the TV and it was advertised as having a balcony which is true but it is tiny! However neither of these things spoilt the overall room experience. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious and one evening we ate... More

Yes the location is good and the staff helpful, but this was not a great stay. The sound proofing in my room was not good and I had to sleep with ear plugs, Barcelona is not a quiet city. The real issue was that the WiFi was totally unusable in my room and for a 4* hotel this is just... More

Great location, just a 2 minute walk from the top end of la rambla. If you are getting the train in from the airport get off at Passeig de Gracia station and the hotel is a 5 min walk away. Diagonal metro stop is also only a 5 min walk with good links to all of the key areas and... More

We visited this hotel Xmas 2014. It is situated about 20 minutes walk from the centre and shops. The reception staff were a little unfriendly but polite. The bedroom was very hot indeed and we were told that the air conditioning was only available during the summer. To cool the room we had to leave the window open all night,... More

the internet is good, stuff is helpful, a bit far from downtown, but still in a walking distance. I asked for seperate beds, they still gave us double bed. Location is quite and safe, good for families with the kids.

Best part of the hotel is the location, very close to placa catalunya and other tourist attractions. The room we stayed at was on the fifth floor and was clean and modern, however the room was dark and the view was of a brick wall. Beds were incredibly comfy! Staff were helpful and breakfast had a good selection but was... More

Location of this hotel is fantastic and you are literally in walking distance of everything. The hotel itself is very nice and the room we were given was spacious, clean and the bathroom surprisingly luxurious! HOWEVER what we were not aware of is that it is located above the metro line and that every time a train passed underneath the... More

This is the first time I have been asked to pay for the room fee in full when check-in. A strange rule and very unpleasant experience. The hotel provides minimum service. Nothing provided in the room, not even a bottle of water. So, no coffee or tea bags, no hot water boiler. Slippers only available if you ask. If you... 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.
