The hotel reception staff was professional and very helpful when we arrived in the middle of the night. They let us know that our credit card had been already charged for our stay, and that an additional city/local tax would be required upon checkout (think that is in the small print but some guests seemed unaware of that fact).

Nice hotel, rooms clean and spacious. Staff very attentive and obliging to answer questions. Wifi in room good. A little bit away from the main area but not to far from bus stops. Had dinner in the restaurant one evening and it was very good. Overall, very happy with the hotel stay for two nights

I would say if you are a single traveler or travelling with friends - this is a good hotel! The hotel staff are very courteous. Food was good. I had breakfast just once, but I would say - I loved the variety and the taste. The location - best! :) Walkable and easy access to the metro. Taxis you can... More

A little off the beaten path, but you're only a 5 min walk from the beaten path 2 min walk form the metro, and the neighborhood was very pleasant. The room was clean and modern. The rooftop lounge was outstanding. Only complaint was that there was not enough sound-insulation from the surrounding rooms. Woke up once or twice in the... More

We arrived and first impressions were good from the façade and the reception area. The reception team were very helpful, professional and friendly. We were on the 5th floor at the front of the hotel - which did prove quite noisy late into the small hours which could be corrected with some double glazing. However not so much that we... More

I wasn't sure about the hotel based on some of the reviews and the online pics didn't necessarily jump out at me. We planned to be in Barcelona a few days and the travel agent suggested this hotel based on location and smaller size more boutique type hotel so we went with it. We were really happy we did! The...

I stayed here for one night on business due to the great room rate and central location. Breakfast buffet included lots of Spanish favorites. There's also free wifi. My one complaint was that bed mattress was a bit hard, and I generally prefer a soft mattress. Otherwise, you can't beat it for the value and the location which is in... More

A relatively small but lovely, quiet hotel in a central location in Barcelona. Rooms of a reasonable size for European hotel--my wife, daughter, and I co-existed peacefully for six nights. Good breakfasts in the morning. Staff very warm and helpful. Beds comfortable. Very nice find and very good value.

Very good location for tourists. Easy walk to restaurants and Las Ramblas, a mainly pedestrian street. The rooms were adequate with free wi-fi and a safe. Our room was on an interior courtyard so it didn't have a view but was much quieter than the street facing rooms. The wi-fi signal wasn't that strong in our room but was fine... 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.
