4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

Nice hotel in very good location, 10 minutes walk from Plaza Catalunya, this was really convenient. Rooms are clean, interior of the rooms are standard. However, we did not like interior of the Hotel in general, no creativity and originality, (i.e.reception desk is small and it looks like Hostel reception desk. We got standard double room which was really dark,... More

Great location, nice rooms and good common areas. The bar/restaurant isn't very large but the service was great. The menu was limited. Good breakfast. We were on a Grad Circle tour and were very happy with the 3 Center hotels in Barcelona, Cordoba and Sevilla.

Really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The location was wonderful, within walking distance of the Ramblas, Metro and bus lines, and many great Barcelona sights. The staff was very helpful-we got in to town at 8am, and they got us in to rooms immediately. The room was lovely, and even though right over the front of the hotel, very... More

Pleasant hotel. I had a huge room, somewhat dark but very comfortable. It is well situated and easy to walk to main attractions. Very good staff and terrific breakfast. I would stay again. It also has lots of restaurants , cafes and supermarkets nearby. They even brought me up hot water so I could make tea in my room.

We loved our stay at this hotel. The location was excellent: close to restaurants, shopping, the Basilica de la Familia, and not far from the famous pedestrian street La Rambla. Yet this hotel's location was tucked away in a relatively quiet location for this city that does not sleep. The rooms were very contemporary and comfortable. Their breakfasts were also... More

Overall a very pleasant stay . The hotel is in quite good position, generally about 20 minutes walk to most places. Rooms while not large are adequate , only issue with the room was the inability to cool the room. We were there in late March and it was quite cold outside but the room was too warm . On... More

The Center Hotel is not in the center of things, depending on what you want to do in the city. The desk staff, when asked how far it is to the Sagrada Familia, Sants Station, the Ramblas or virtually anywhere else, says: "It's 20 minutes on foot." Make that 30 in most cases. Still, by definition I suppose, this must... 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.
