I stayed here for around five days, and was amazed by the location-price ratio: you're in the middle of L'eixample! A short walk to a number of good open-air markets. Also, there's free coffee if you wake up early enough. The beds are uncomfortable, but...More

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
