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... More

The location, the staff, the rooms - PERFECT! Close to amazing shopping, sites, and steps from the tour bus stops, this hotel is in the center of it all. The room we were appointed was gorgeous - high painted ceilings, coffee/tea station, his/hers closet, small balcony and a sitting area. Staff were kind and helpful (you can purchase tour bus...

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... More

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... More

This is a great gem of a hotel. Conveniently located off the Place de Gracia and right near the subway so whether Park Guell or the Joan Miro museum are on you agenda both are extremely accessible. Friendly staff, clean, and comfortable with breakfast included.

The Actual is an excellent base for a Gaudí-focused visit to Barcelona. It's easy to reach by train from the airport. From there, you can walk or use public transportation. We stayed in a fifth floor, standard superior room. It was wonderful to return after a day of exploring, open the doors to the pocket balcony, pour a glass of... More

Don't be deceived by the 3-star rating. This is a really nice hotel. Our suite was amazing (see the photo of the ceiling) and the balcony was facing the posh Passeig de Gracia. We could walk to the Ramblas, Sagrada Familia or Parc Guell. Plenty of amazing tapas restaurants close by.

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.
