Stunning modern suites in the best location in Barcelona. Literally across the street from Gaudi's La Padrera, on the main shopping street Passeig Des Gracias. Short walk out the front door to a bus stop, metro stop. Within a few blocks, Crusto (great bakery), Vineoteca Torres (wine bar), Colmado Quilez (gourmet food shop), tons of tapas bars, restaurants and shops. Moderate walk gets you to Las Ramblas and the touristic/older section of town. Easy to get to the airport (metro or Aerobus stop nearby). If you like to walk, Sagrada Familia is about 1 mile away, and Guell Park, 1 mile beyond that.

The design of the property is really quite amazing. The suites are stunning. The property is very quiet, and discreet, and you don't see other guests very often.

There is a roof top swimming pool with a terrace that has amazing daytime and nitetime views of the city. There is a workout center, and a computer station.

There is unlimited hardwired internet (if you bring a Cat5 cable), also 90 minutes/day of free wi-fi. You can purchase addition wi-fi time as needed.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom three person suite (bedrooms, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, living room), with a balcony overlooking Gracias and La Padrera. The kitchen had a combo oven/cooktop/microwave, dish washer, refrigerator, wine cooler, comboclothes washer/dryer, as well as nespresso coffee machine. Laundry detergent and dish washer capsules provided. Fridge is stocked with typical hotel items for sale. A Nespresso boutique is 1 block away, where you can get additional capsules if you want. There is an extensive food court/grocery store in the basement of Corte Engles Department store, on Gracias street.

I would absolutely stay there again. You actually get the best rates booking directly with the hotel, and a significant discount is applied for longer stays. While not cheap, it is a actually a real value given the amazing location, and the size and amenities of the unit.

It's truly an awesome hotel! I will recommend this hotel to anyone who is going to Barcelona. (whether short trip or long stay!)

The room is very stylish and has everything you need. It's a home style hotel suites room, you have everything you would need from Kitchen to laundry.

The hotel itself does not provide breakfast, but right around the corner, there are two very nice coffee shop where you can enjoy the wonderful espresso and bakeries.

The hotel staffs are very friendly, and if you dont know where to go. Feel free to ask them, they will give you very good advices. (food or point of interest.)

The hotel is located right across from Casa Mila. (If you stay at Suites Avenue, I would recommend you go visit the very top floor! It's a public area where has a very nice view and a small swim pool!)

Hotel is right in the heart of shopping area, walk out from the hotel, you will have all the big brands that you can think of. All within the walking distance.

If you planning to tour the city, you can walk to Casa Mila, right in front of it is the city tour bus pickup/drop off location. You can get a day pass which the city tour bus will take you to all the tourist interest points around Barcelona. The bus is very convenient and comes fairly frequent.

Very lovely hotel, and for sure will stay there again next trip.

We had a wonderful 5 night stay at Suites Avenue and wouldn't hesitate to send any of our family & friends there.

The service was excellent as was the appartment, a real home away from home.

Many thanks to the staff for making our trip so enjoyable (great tip-offs about bars/restaurants too!).

We will look forward to visiting again in the future. The good reviews are fully justified.

How to describe this ....?
From day one till last day was everything just perfect.
You have perfect access to metro or bus to reach the best views in Barcelona.
The street is perfect for shopping and going out activities (best suhi or tapas bars are 200 meters away only)

Room Tip: Take a room at the highest Flor if possible if you like it more quieter. 2 Bedrooms are perfect whe...

We ( my husband , 28 year old son and I ) stayed for three nights on the eighth floor and absolutely loved it. The view from the roof terrace and pool was spectacular i.e. the Padrera across the road and Passeig de Gracia and the whole of Barcelona as well. The apartment was very well equipped and the reception staff very helpful. The area has many fabulous bars and restaurants within walking distance and we took up two of the recommendations of the hotel and loved them especially on our last night at the Moo restaurant ( part of the Hotel Omm) across the road. Would definitely stay here again. One suggestion might be to have some recommendations on Barcelona and restaurants, bars etc somewhere in the apartment as we were lazy and did not research it before we came . Fantastic stay. We will be back

Just back from a 4 night stay at the Suites. A very good choice for our first visit to Barcelona. We rented the penthouse suite 85 and had both beautiful and spacious accommodations and a wonderful large deck from which to view the Casa Mila and sip our evening wine after a day of sightseeing. The location worked for us since it was very convenient to the Diagonal metro station that allowed us to get around the city very easily. A couple of things that would have improved our stay; paper towels in the kitchen, a regular full size box of tissues, coffee for the espresso machine included in the fee, improved lighting in the bathroom, room darkening drapes for the living room (felt like we were in a fish bowl at night with the lights on) and instructions on operating the lighting system in the suite. The staff were extremely helpful and courteous. They helped us with reservations, etc., overall a very good choice.

This was my first time staying at the Suites Avenue. First of all, COOL looking building! Its easily recognizable from the street as it is located across from La Pedrera. Very modern interior aesthetic- Barcelona chairs, oversized drum lamps, minimal design. We stayed in a superior Pedrera room and it was very spacious, the balcony a nice addition, full kitchen, living room and bathroom. Our bedroom faced the interior of the hotel and it was extremely quiet and dark, which was nice. The bed was a little hard as some other reviewers noted, but it wasn't uncomfortably so. Hotel location is also great, safe area with lots of high end shopping options and dining, public transportation and cabs are easily accessible. The staff overall was very nice and accomodating.
