Stayed for 3 nights late October with friends in three different rooms. All were cosy, spacious and super clean. Comfy beds and pillows and quiet for a good sleep. My room was on the 7th floor with a nice small terrace (smoking room). Breakfast was rich, fresh and I'd say a bit of a nice surprise for it's price (10... More

Catalonia Diagonal Centro, where Road Scholar parked us for our week of Barcelona discovery, was the low point of my visit. Conveniently located near public transportation, sleep was accompanied by the rumble of the subway beneath the street. Miscalculating the Road Scholar schedule, I arrived a day early and was told by the surly clerk he would attempt to find... More

The service was friendly, helpful. The room was well maintained, clean towels, bedding. The amenities were pleasant and comfortable. The location was excellent, within a very short walking distance to trains and buses, making it very easy to get around a wonderful city!

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights as part of a Road Scholar tour of Barcelona. The hotel in general was excellent and our room was very nice. The breakfast buffet that was included was very diverse and offered many excellent choices. However, the stations with the fried eggs, sausage, and quiche did not keep the food hot. I... More

My partner and I spent two nights here at the end of a 2 week holiday touring around Spain. Having stayed in 7 hotels in 2 weeks, we can confidently say this was the worst one by far. I can put up with anything for 2 nights but I think if I'd booked for longer I would have requested another... More

Excellent location for bars, restaurants and a metro stop very close. Inside the main entrance is clean modern and tidy with attentive and excellent staff. The room..... well. Bit dated with lots of wood that makes the room feel dated to the 1970's. And I have a strange wood panelled pillar in the room which makes it a bit of... More

Good, excellent location, just next to metro station. I found the room price a bit expensive. I loved the terrace in the room (top floor); with privacy and good for relaxing outside enjoying the nice weather. Breakfast was also good, with fruit, nuts, cereals, tasty. TV channels were good also, with offers in many original languages.

We stayed here for one night when we made a flying visit to Barcelona so my husband and son could go to a Barca game. The hotel is centrally located and close to a couple of metro stations so is a good base. Whilst check-in seemed to take ages, the staff were very helpful and informative. We had a family... More

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.
