If you want a supermodern, fancy hotel with all the bells and whistles, this one may not be for you. But if you are looking for a hotel that is reasonably priced, extremely comfortable, superbly located, and has extremely friendly, multi-lingual, and helpful staff, and is set up in the way of pre-war luxury hotels, then, like us, you will...

This hotel is walking distance from many cultural highlights in Barcelona. It is close to bus and subway access. I got an awful ear infection during my stay and could not fly home on my planned departure date. The hotel worked with me to extend my stay at a reasonable rate. They also called a doctor for me, made copies... More

The hotel rooms are beautiful! The staff is helpful and pleasant. You're only a couple of blocks away from La Rambla and all things Gaudi! I would definitely stay here again. I did not eat in the hotel, so I cannot review the food, but there are so many restaurants that you have absolutely no reason to eat where you... More

Nice hotel, very clean, friendly staff. As many places in Bcn, it feels like you 'must' be in the city center to be anywhere, and this does not leave much space for splashy facilities. Buffet food was ok, breakfast better....

Most of the time the plates and glasses were dirty and we had to put them to one side. The food was ok but lacked flavor and at times was under cooked (potatoes) The rooms were a good size but just dark and lacked international plug sockets and just sockets in general. No free water in the rooms and the... More

Barcelona Center Hotel was suggested to us by our travel agent back in 2010. We had a lovely stay, a spacious room and enjoyed the excellent location. Since then we have made numerous trips back to Barcelona and have stayed here 2 additional times. Again, wonderful stays. On each visit, we have found the staff to be extremely helpful, friendly,...

We really enjoyed our stay in Barcelona Center Hotel. The location is almost perfect with great panoramic views of the city. Well thought out decor and plenty things to do for our young ones. We stayed four nights and I can honestly say we didn't find anything to complain about. Hope to be back someday.

My wife and I are just back from a 3 night stay at this great hotel. 5 blocks back from Placa De Catalunya it is a nice stroll perhaps 10 minutes. Metro station only a block away. Fantastic views from the rooftop bar. Modern rooms that are quiet and comfortable

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
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.
