This hotel is situated very conveniently close to Casa Mila & Casa Batlo and the metro. The neighborhood is quiet and we felt safe. The room is modern, clean, and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting Barcelona for the first time.

There is a small garden and pool area with an outdoor bar. This can become overcrowded during busy periods through out the day. All staff were friendly... More

Fab hotel, with a great location. Our room was extremely quiet and had the most comfortable bed. Hotel staff were beyond helpful and polite. The turn down service and chocolate on the pillow are such lovely touches. Would definitely stay again when visiting Barcelona.

The hotel was booked as part of an EasyJet holiday package and is about 15 minutes walk to the airport bus drop off/ pick up. All the staff were really friendly, polite and helpful.

Stayed here on a work-related trip for a few days in september 2014. The hotel staff did a good job of preparing for our arrival and providing refreshments during our meetings. The wi-fi connection was unstable and not sufficient for 20+ people unfortunately. The rooms were clean and of normal standard. Service good.

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.
