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.
