Location: Central, close to several metro stops and within walking distance of "La Pedrera". Other comments: Baby friendly. Breakfast: Expensive for 16 euro per person. We had an offer from the restaurant for 10, which was still a bit overpriced. WIFI: A bit dodgy, especially by Mac kept giving warnings that the security certificate does not match. I am sure...

The Catalonia Diagonal Centro Hotel is well situated and reasonably priced. The hotel on Carrer de Balmes is near two metro stations (Provenca on Balmes, Diagonal on Ramblas de Catalonia), and many good restaurant choices within a one-mile radius. There are some reasonably priced restaurants along Carrer de Rosello. For lower-priced, lively choices, take a short walk up to Gracia...

Having booked through a travel agency and requesting 4 star hotels, we were sorely disappointed in this hotel. It is in need of a rennovation/facelift. There are other Catalonia properties in Barcelona that were much better. The housekeeping service did not clean properly and the room (305) was very dusty and the overall room was very gloomy in appearance.

Dear Guests, The same as you, we are dissapointed to know that you didn't like the room. Would you have asked for another room, we would have changed you. We have checked the room and we have made some maintenance works in order to keep it properly. The room facing the street with its balcony is nice and well accepted....

First time in Barcelona, arrived at the hotel - tried to check-in, receptionist barely spoke English. I know that it isn't a pre-requisite for hotel receptionists in Spain to speak English, however, we're talking about a city which hosts 8 million tourists a year - basic understand should be a minimum. The room was nice and clean, accommodation staff did...

Dear sir, Thank you for your comments about our hotel. Despite that location is one of our strengths, our reception team is arguably the best of our assets.

I stayed for a week in this hotel which is very centrally located. The location, in effect, is its biggest plus. The staff at the reception were quite helpful and kind, and the wifi is working fine. Everything else is just "passable". I had a room overlooking a dark internal courtyard, so that I had to keep the light on,...

Location: Very good location, five (ok maybe 10 in my case) mins walk to the Passeig de Grazia. Restaurants available round the corner, and a convenience store across the street. Decent rooms - good size, clean, amenities are all in order. Good service - front desk staff are always polite, happy to help and smiley.

Modern, clean hotel not far from Las Rhambas. No particular charm but has all the modern conveniences. Breakfast is excellent and includes both scrambled eggs and a Spanish potatoe egg frittata. The location is ideal for visiting Barcelona but is not in a heavily touristed location..

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.
