Situated close to the city centre, ideal for the metro. Rooms are pretty basic but clean and tidy. They do lunch which is tasty and excellent value for money. Breakfast adequate but nothing to write home about. This hotel doesn't serve an evening meal. Reception staff spoke good English and were friendly and helpful.

Well placed just 6 mins from 2 metro stops. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Plenty of shops and restaurants near by. Daily maid service kept everything clean and tidy. A good base for exploring the city without been caught up in the huddle and bussle of the city centre. 30 min walk to gothic area

Four night stay in Barcelona and couldn't fault this hotel. Spotlessly clean, good breakfast and very helpful reception staff. Very near to the Sagrada Familia and about a half an hour walk from the centre. Metro stations nearby. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice location with very pleasant staff. Was able to easily walk to all the various locations within the city that I wanted to visit.

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.
