Stayed at the Pestana between 20th Feb and 24th Feb 2015. Had a standard room with 2 single beds and a nice large bathroom, only about 8 rooms to a floor and as much breakfast as you can eat. In a quiet street but only a few minutes walk to the metro and the bullring shopping centre. Only 4 stops... More

Stayed at the Pestana Barcelona in December and I have to say this boutique hotel was stunning. We had a fantastic 4 night stay here. We had a Junior suite on the top floor and the balcony was the biggest I've ever seen it actually went around the corner of the building so you couldn't see from one end to... More

This is a 4* hotel who is within walking distance to Plaça d'Espanya metro. The hotel is a good base for visiting nearby attractions. Metro/Subway is a great and economical way of going to places in Barcelona without the hassle of car traffic. The hotel has a restaurant in place, but there are nice restaurants nearby. Our room was very... More

Located just off the Plaza Espana this is a modern Hotel with clean spacious rooms. The helpful and friendly staff make your stay even more enjoyable. A good location for sightseeing and shopping with metro stations and tourist buses all stopping in the Plaza. The Bus from the airport (Aero-bus) also stops there. Would definitely stay here again.
