Great location. Clean rooms. Secure building. Quiet at night. Worth paying that bit more for your own bathroom!! The only things it needs is a long length mirror and netted/voile curtains for the balcony as people can see into room. I will definitely be back. Highly recommend!!!

We stayed there for 3 nights and it was ok. Not the greatest, we got a very small room, but at least the bathroom was clean and big. They cleaned the room while we were out, but didn't change the sheets. The location is very good, very close to Metro station Diagonal and walking distance to the area Eixample.

The rooms provide you with everything you need for your stay. The location in Gracia was perfect for walking around, finding restaurants that were "less touristy" and many markets/shops around.

I would say its more like apartment than hotel. Clean and nice representing room. Towels and shower things provided. Location - excellent. Not far away of everything. Around good places where to eat, drink, few supermarkets.

We really enjoyed our stay at DingDong Express - it was clean, quiet and very comfortable. The bathroom was shared but as there was no one in the neighboring bedroom we had it to ourselves and it was spotless and looked brand new. The only reservations we had were that the reception is only manned part time. We waited over...

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
