The location of the hotel is nice. not so much in the touristy area such as Las Ramblas but you can walk. it is close enough to Casa Batillo and you can take your morning run along Passeig De Gracia toward the pier. the breakfast spread was good and the staff is excellent! remember to visit the observation deck. the...

Excellent service began at check-in, continued at the restaurant and bar despite being overrun with an American tourist group, and an invitation to return upon check-out. Small, but clean and comfortable room and bathroom. Beautiful view of the Sagrada Familia. Will definitely return and stay again.

We were greeted warmly by the friendly staff. The check in was fast. We requested a wheelchair for one of my family members and they helped us rent a wheelchair for two days. The rooms are spacious and clean. The only problem was the shower. The problem was that the bathtub / shower didn't have a shade to close. They...

The hotel is very well done, in a quite, safe part of town. The staff is very accommodating and knowledgeable. I found the room to be a little small for Spain, but was clean, quite, and HVAC kept proper temperature

We stayed here Dec 18-21, and had a great time. The Navigator and Bellman in the mornings/early afternoons for those dates were very helpful. Gave great local advice along with touristy info. Both were always enjoyable and welcoming. They are the reason I rated the hotel a 5. Room was good, and bathrooms had fancy marble tile for the floors...

Friendly staff, good size rooms, breakfast included was definitely a plus. Centrally located, easy walks to all destinations, and metro is close by too! Many restaurants and cafes are close by, so very convenient location wise.

I have visited Barcelona several times, and I am very glad I just found this hotel. Service is wonderful, location could not be better. Steps away from Passeig de Gracia, La Pedrera and Casa Batllo, and a few blocks away from Plaza Catalunya and the Ramblas. You can walk to many of the most important spots in Barcelona. The hotel...

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
