Part of Marriott chain, this hotel is centrally located, a street away from Passeig de Gracia. Underground station at 2 minutes walk. 10, maybe 15 minutes walk to Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas. Plenty of shops and restaurants all around. A small food shop right across the street. Breakfast good, could be better though. I didn't like the omelette (seemed...

The hotel is located right next to train/metro stop. Very easy to get there by public transport from the airport. Train ticket 4.1€ and taxi is 29€ plus luggage fees around 35€. Got nothing to complain about the hotel. Great location, located next to the shopping street and some famous sightseeing spot. There's a good seafood restaurant around as well...

Barcelona is one of the world's great cities and the Renaissance is a very good fit. Not a five star, but a solid 4, well located one block off the grand Passeig de Gracia, a 15 minute walk to Las Ramblas and the magnificent Boqueria market and another 15 down to the beach. Very close to classic Gaudi architecture. Reception...

We celebrated our 20 year anniversary at this hotel this month. The location of the hotel is perfect, the food was excellent, the rooms were clean and modern, but what made this hotel really shine, was the staff. During our stay, we found them to be so friendly, helpful and engaging. We would not only stay here again, but would...

I chose this hotel for location as well as room size. I chose an executive room which has a miniscule closet so had to live off of our luggage but the room was large enough for a bigger closet. Obviously the designer does not think of business travellers with formal clothes. Bathroom was good size as well and cleaning was...

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.
