Spent four nights at this very spacious and comfortable hotel. The staff and service was excellent, Had a very comfortable classic room with a walk in wardrobe. Very good breakfast choice. Excellent views of whole city from roof top bar and restaurant. Would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again. Good location too.

Beautiful lobby, location isn't too bad either. We had a room on the first floor, we found that window is frosted - it feels strage to be in a 5* hotel and not be able to look out of the window. Massive, clean and modern bathrooms with bathtubs with massage were a highlight.

This hotel accommodates every wish and is in a favorable neighborhood close enough to everything but far enough away from the mayhem that is La Ramblas. The service is impeccable, and the food is delicious, especially the breakfast. It is a beautiful property, so make sure to take time to enjoy the lovely lounges and rooftop bar. I waffled between...

This is a lovely hotel located centrally (to the museums and to Passeig De Garcia). It is old world charm at its best. The service was very good. The room was of a good size and is well appointed with a the necessary amenities in place. I would come back again.

This is a wonderful classic property with tons of history and character, immaculately and lovingly maintained. In addition to the beautiful and well-appointed building, service is a real standout as well, with every staff member providing exceptional care. Food is also a winner here, with some great restaurant and in-room dining options. I would not hesitate to return.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable 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 recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
