The rooms were of a good sized, not huge, not small. The bed was comfortable with good linens. I really enjoyed the shower, large shower with both a handheld and rain shower.

Every time we come to Barcelona we stay at this hotel. The rooms are lovely and spacious. The Sky Bar and pool deck have amazing views. The staff (reception, pool deck, cleaners) are really lovely and always helpful. The only negatives are that the lifts are slow, the bar service is even slower. However, I would highly recommend this hotel... More

From the initial moment we walked in the door we were hit by the dreadful smell. The same smell you get when you enter a gay sauna.

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.
