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... More

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.
