We stayed for four nights at the Hostal Aribau. The staff is very kind and obliging. They cleaned the room every day. There is no luxury of course but it is kind of cosy, so the price is appropriate. You are after a ten minute walk at the Catalunya. But there are also shops at the University which you reach... More

We stayed here on a Friday & Saturday in August, so finding a decently priced place was not easy. This place was okay. The bed was old, the shower was tiny and leaked, and the bathroom didn't always smell the best. No Wifi, and the closest option was Starbucks 3 blocks away. The AC was strong, the room was quiet,...

Don't believe the Web site description--(lovely room, king-size bed). While the location was good--close to the metro and within walking distance of the Las Ramblas, the primary room was very small, the bed squeaked just turning over (a double, older than Methuselah), the shower stall so small, you couldn't turn around, and the lift creaked, groaned and thumped all night...

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.
