Do not go for the Lastminute.com 4* Top Secret Hotel with a rooftop pool. No frills clean very basic hotel. Only standard double/twin rooms. You can't upgrade even if you wanted to pay more. For £40 a night don't expect too much.

This was through a Groupon deal to see Barcelona play football at the Camp Nou, and two night stay over he weekend. From the list of hotels provided, I chose this one due to previous reviews, and its easy access to and from the Airport by the AeroBus, Having stayed there, I'm glad I did choose this one.

To put frankly, I wouldn't really recommend staying here. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The shower worked well and there was adjustable air conditioning in each room. Free wifi which worked very well. However, there were a lot of negatives - decidedly too many for how much we paid per night. The walls were as thin as rice... More

We stayed for a long weekend in late January, the hotel is in a very good location, and for the price we couldn't have asked for more. Friendly staff, nice clean rooms, good housekeeping and nothing was to much trouble. It also has excellent parking, but not for big cars. Its not four star, but its not crap either. if... More

This hotel doesn't have what you would expect from a 4 star. The room was small, remote had no batteries, lamp had no lightbulb, a dead cockroach was found behind the bin, no tea or coffee facilities, staff were rude and not welcoming at all. This wasn't the best experience, probably because I was expecting a 4 star hotel service.... More

We had a good experience at Sunotel. The only bad thing was the breakfast because there wasn't a lot of choice and the stuff wasn't fresh, so the breakfast was a bit pricy. We stayed on the top level and we had an amazing balcony with a great view. The room was spacey. The swimming pool is small, but above... More

Just arrived. Horrible hot, poky room with tiny window overlooking air conditioning units. Where is the balcony & view we were promised? Receptionist not interested & reviewed to move us. Could not be more disappointed. Location is good - we will not be spending time here!

Sunotel Central was a very convenient, clean and exceptionally friendly spot. The staff were very helpful and informative, the rooms clean, well appointed and the location is really good for both Pl. de Catalunya, La Rambla and the metro. Good food, shopping, etc. nearby and it was a very pleasant stay for us on two occasions.

The hotel is very near plaza cataluñya and the old city center. It is well served by subway and bus. Very small rooms, small bathroom. No additional pillows, unefficient roommate make the hotel at least 2 or 3 stars category. Prices are for 4 stars category. I think you can find something better at better price.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
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.
