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.

If Tripadvisor gave me an option of giving 0 or negative rating, I would do that. The only thing going for this place is its location which is fantastic. Right on top of an Irish bar and a 5 min walk from Placa Catalunya, it's...More

Rooms needed soundproofing, could hear noise outside the room. Floors and blankets were dirty. Bathrooms a little small and smell, showers needed upgrade from the shower curtain to screens. However the reception staff was friendly and the entry and elevator was unique.
