Like much of Barcelona this area has nice architecture, plenty of bars and cafes and shops and smaller ramblas to stroll along.

Phenomenal shopping, gorgeous architecture. We ended up in L'Eixample before a tour and we ended up going back later in the day to shop. The district has everything from & Other Stories and Sephora, to Louis Vuitton and Hermes.

If you like the hustle and bustle of the big city and also seek the small streets, small cafes and shops - then go to this part of Barcelona - you'll love it

Upmarket and pricey but well worth walking around. We did the Rick Steve's walk from his pocket guide and found a few gems. More to see in other districts though if you are short on time.

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

I used AirBnB and there are many good locations around the area. The one I stayed at was practically a hotel.
