We wished we'd had more than one night at Hotel Actual! The location was great...right off a major street with anything you need or want. The room was clean and comparatively large...the best smelling hotel room I've ever been in! They use some sort of lemon cleaning product that smells AMAZING. The service was incredibly pleasant and helpful....a friendly Ola!...

Visited with the kids for the football game, the hotel is centrally located and easy to find. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great hotel at a good value! The beds were comfy and the breakfast was good. The kids loved it!

The hotel is in a great location, close to the centre and the culturals turistic spots, but in a calm and chic area. The hotel is clean and very pleasant. The staff is always kind and willing to help you with anything. The breakfast is complete, many options are available. I recommend it without hesitation.

I stayed at Actual hotel for just one night for a business trip. The hotel is very clean and staff extremely reserved but at the same time kind and very supportive. Very close to the center but far from the typical noise of Spanish movida. I recommend of to everybody both for business and family trip.

This hotel is in a great location, safe and quiet, near to Barcelona's fancy shopping districts (there are many, but this is a great base). Average cost for the area at about $145 USD per night. Hotel room was spacious for Europe, fairly quiet, and clean. The cons on this location are that when we checked in we were told...

My husband and I stayed at the Actual Hotel on October 14, 2016 for one night before leaving on a cruise. I had read several reviews which made it sound like a great option for us. Close to many of the places we wanted to see. When we checked in we were able to get into our room very early...

If you are looking for a hotel with easy access to public transportation, best attractions of Barcelona, restaurants, high end shopping, etc. the Actual is for you. The rooms are small (we had a twin), but adequate. Although the entrance in on Rossello, the rooms have balconies facing the corner with Passeig de Gracia. The cab ride from the airport...

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.
