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. All of them speak english correctly, so I think you were attended by a woman doing a school practices. However she was only 5 hours in the morning and there was always...

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,...

Dear guest, Thank you for your comments about our hotel. It is a pity that you didn't ask for changing room if you need to have more light and staying for 1 week, as we have rooms at the front of the hotel with light and small balcony.

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..

This hotel was a good find. It is in Central Barcelona, but quiet. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, and any request for assistance was met in a very helpful manner. Even if the receptionist did not know the answer they were more than willing to go and find someone who could help. The room was comfortable, clean and...

Excellent location with friendly and helpful staff. We were told the transport links were convenient but we just walked everywhere - no need for transport.

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.
