This is centrally located close to Sagrada Familia. Train station is only 2 blocks and the bus stop. Staff are very nice and helpful. The hotel is clean, the bed is firm and perfect and the breakfast is great.

Stayed before boarding our cruise ship. Location is fantastic! We had a wonderful evening meal at La Foga 10 mins walk and having two kids opted to walk to MacDs for breakfast! To our surprise right outside Sagrada Familia! Literally 10mins walk. The hotel was clean and perfect for our short visit. We especially liked the complimentary toothpaste, toothbrush etc!...

Limited service boutique hotel in an excellent location; convenient to metro, airport train and major attractions. Very accommodating and helpful front desk staff. Housekeeping was a bit less enthusiastic.As mentioned in other reviews, noise level is problematic and you can hear "everything" from adjacent rooms. Overall, good choice.

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.
