We used Trip Advisor's review system to find a central, quiet, affordable and smaller hotel in Barcelona. L'Antic Espai proved to be perfectly located and pleasantly surprised us from the moment we entered with its Victorian furnishings and decor. Sergio met us and was very welcoming and even walked one block away with us to help carry our bags from... More

I stayed in this hostal for 2 days on a business trip to Barcelona. The hotel is very central, about 10 minutes walk from Plaza Catalunya [where the direct bus from the airport arrives and departs from.] The hostal is on the first floor of a building, so count the street numbers and keep looking up for the gold L'Antic...

This hotel was recommended to us by friends who stayed there before. They warned us ahead of time that the room they had was pretty small, but the very central location made more than up for that. We were so happy to have taken our friends' advice. We really got a taste of the city, probably ate in the best... More

Entering in this apartment will bring you back in time. The decoration, the furniture, I felt as if I were slipping into another dimension. Even if the room was small and very noisy, everyone should see this place who is interested in seeing a traditional beautiful apartment from the beginning of 1900s.

we stayed in this hotel after reading the comments in Trip Advisor, and believe me everthing is true, this place is exactly how you see it in photos, there is lots of antics, taking care of each details, we had a room that has an access to the terrace, which is amazing, with some plants, birds, and a small nice...

Ok here's the lowdown: 1. If you're looking for a hotel with nice, modern amenities, this is not it. This is better for people in their early twenties, or backpackers. 2. When we were there, something must have pooped or died in a wall because the smell was so bad. It literally smelled like old cat litter throughout the hotel.... More

We stayed in room 107 with a double bed and separate sitting area, though we enjoyed sitting on the terrace for our breakfast which was wonderfully laid out for us with a minimum of fuss by the friendly guys who run the place. Décor is almost kitsch but not tacky and fits well with the visually stunning Barcelona - your... More

I chose this hotel because of its location and decor and was not disappointed! The room I had as a single traveler was small, but had a balcony. There were many thoughtful "touches" around the room - glass picture with water. Lovely unique art on the walls. Many of the floor tiles were original to the building. The staff was... More

What a great location!... lovely cafes, restaurants & bars a few doors up; centrally located - so only a short walk to shops, markets, the main square, theatres, Gaudi architecture, tapas, buses, trains, etc. Unique in that they used the security of your fingerprint to enter the building & main door. Really liked that it felt more like a traditional... 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.
