Absolutely loved the hotel! The breakfast was fantastic loads of choices! The staff couldn't be more helpful! We got a free upgraded room so had a balcony and it was fabulous! Couldn't have asked for a better hotel!

One of the worst and utter stays I could imagine. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone unless you want sleepless nights of hammering and banging and room cards which do not work. We arrived on the 2nd of March to a standard room. Nothing special just basic small room next to the lift. There was a draft coming...

Myself and my fiancee stayed here last weekend (3rd March - 5th March 2017) and had a wonderful time. The hotel is very stylish and really big with 5 floors, including a great roof top bar with swimming pool and deck area. Our room was really nice - bed was very comfortable, bathroom very nice with lovely shower and very...

It was probably the best massage I have ever experienced. I booked with Jesus and he was very skilful and delivered a very relaxing massage. I felt that he knew exactly what he was doing because he could detect easily all tension spots (my old or not so old injuries from pretty hard training I do almost every day) without...

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.
