Enjoyed our stay, very comfortable, staff was extremely helpful. Enjoyed the free use of wi fi, Wish we could have stayed longer. Hotel was centrally positioned to allow for access to transport, or to walk to various sightseeing places.

Comfortable, clean rooms with spacious bathroom. Beds were comfortable too. Good location quite close to La Sagrada Familia also one of the three tourist bus routes...which tickets are cheaper at reception and the price includes all three routes! Easy to hail taxis from outside hotel and costs not too bad to anywhere else in the city. Didn't eat there though,...

This is centrally located close to Sagrada Familia. Train station is only 2 blocks and the bus stop. Staff are very nice and helpful. The hotel is clean, the bed is firm and perfect and the breakfast is great.

Stayed before boarding our cruise ship. Location is fantastic! We had a wonderful evening meal at La Foga 10 mins walk and having two kids opted to walk to MacDs for breakfast! To our surprise right outside Sagrada Familia! Literally 10mins walk. The hotel was clean and perfect for our short visit. We especially liked the complimentary toothpaste, toothbrush etc!...

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.
