Nice service, clean rooms and lovely pool. So easy to get everything and all the big tourist attractions are within 20 mins walk. I would definitely stay here again. Just what we needed for our little city break.

Terrible hotel. My room personally had ceiling boards that fell on me during my stay at the hotel along with water dripping from the ceiling. It's also crazy expensive for 1 star quality. When I alerted the hotel staff about my dripping ceiling they offered me 19 euros off my 450 euro bill.... 19/450. They said, water damage to my... More

I recently stayed for 3 nights which included the weekend. Make sure to ask to stay at a higher floor. Fortunately for me, I was so tired that the shaking and rumbling of the nearby subway did not affect my sleep. The subway runs underneath this building. It could also get loud if there is a football match going on.... 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.
