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

Yes, to the double bed. Just request it. There are many great restaurants within walking distance. If you leave the hotel and walk two blocks to the right there is a very popular tapas spot.
