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

Quaint and charming. Although room was small, it was comfortable for a three nights stay. Plaza Catalunya a few blocks away. Balcony facing the street was an added bonus. No elevator, hence extra muscles required for heavy luggages.

Thank you for the review, actually we dont have elevator because the entrance of the building is historical entrance, that is why we cant touch anything to put an elevator, and you dont have to have muscles to check in, you can always buzz us and one of our team will go down to help you, thanks again and we...

Stayed here during MWC. Location is perfect just 2 blocks from the center of the town. Abel was very helpful. He has a great selection of antiques. Try the breakfast on the balcony very stylish and great to taste. Room 105 has access to the balcony. Overall a great place to stay. -Samir

I wish I could keep this place a secret! It is amazingly charming and has the perfect location in the very centre of Barcelona. And, the best of all - great value for money. We were very enthusiastic about the vintage interior, and we were even greeted with a glass of cava. This place exceeds all expectations! I will definitely... More

A nice experience we will remember. Vey special hotel and very nice staff. ---- that is enough--- I liked the hotel, but I dislike very much to be forced to write minimum 200 characters. So next time, Trip Advisor, - I will not give a feed-back.

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.
