ZOO ROOMS offers stylish and budget "chic & cheerful" accommodation to a new generation of culturally sophisticated visitors to Barcelona who want a certain level of independence mixed with top-quality service, style and comfort at an affordable price.Hotel? Hostel? - Oh?tel! Our rooms meet guidelines for hotel standards, but our prices are closer to a hostel. we are a unique boutique guesthouse, combining the quality you'd find in a fancy hotel with the personal services offered in a hostel - you can cook your own meal, mingle with other guests, chill out in the living room, drink on the terrace, and all at an affordable price.The location of our little city oasis, in the heart of the Eixample area, was carefully chosen so our guests would get a better city experience and level of comfort and relax that you just won't find staying in the old town. We are situated in a prestigious area of the city, next to the city's most hip restaurants, bars and just walking distance to the city's finest sights: There are bars and clubs just around the corner if you want to go out dancing, the best of the city's restaurants - with prices to suit all budgets - are all within easy walking distance. Gaudí's masterpieces La Pedrera and Casa Battló are also just a few blocks away.The area is safe at night to walk around in - you will not be harrassed by beer-sellers, thieves and drunkards like in the old town.Did we mention the TERRAZA? Our privileged guests will soon discover our large sunny terrace with hammocks and tables and lounge chairs where guests can really chill out and take a break from the hum-drum of the big city. We organise weekly BBQ's in the evenings during the summer months serving a wonderful array of the best Argentinean and Galician meats, fresh fish and grilled vegetarian options.

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.

This is a boutique guesthouse in the heart of the Eixample district. Andrea immediately made us feel welcome and helped us get oriented to both the property and the city. The building is mixed-use, with both residential units and businesses, and is within walking distance of

Zoo Rooms combines a bit of the hostel experience (a full kitchen and common areas) with that of a boutique hotel (large, modern, individualized rooms). The location was excellent for me as it had a better balance between locals and tourists than some parts of the city. Gaudi

Hola, no - no admitimos animales. El nombre tiene que ver con crear un sitio acogedor, ya que afuera es una selva :-)

"Room 2 has a separate double room, my son stays there and sleeps well in there,"
"Rooms with "a patio" don't seem worth the extra price. You just get a portion of the common patio outside your room reserved."
"A lovely room with access to the terrace"
"rooms with terrace entrance is more quiet. No traffic sound"
"If you are looking for quiet, rooms overlooking the terrace have less traffic noise, but it wasn't a problem for me."
