We searched all over Barcelona for a spa to do last minute massages and this was the only one we could find. The staff was friendly at first as soon as we walked in though the smell of mildew was overwhelming. We were given dirty used one time sandals and weird smelling robes. We almost left but I was really... More

I booked, by telephone a session of 2 hours for me and my girlfriend, including 30 minutes of massage, plus hour and half of spa. Very friendly girl on the phone, which explained everything about the program. Once we reached there, the staff was very friendly and they provided some flip flops, a robe, a dispensable underwear and asked us... More

Though located in upscale area of Barcelona, near Sarria and Gracia, off Passeo de Gracia, the facility is updated and in need of renovation. It is a very spartan facility, the changing areas are co-ed and very small. There is nothing "luxury" or "spa" like about the facility, it is very utilitarian. You are offered a robe, paper thong and... More

After three days of beach volley, I was sore in every muscle, and needed some help. I found this marvelous place, where Frances took care of the cicuit, with perfect attention of the detail. Liana then gave me 60 minutes of tender but firm massage, loosening up all my knots and relaxing the rest :-) I came in at 13.30... More

I lived in Barcelona for about one year and had a hard time finding a good spa where i could get a good deep tissue massage. My mom came to visit and we booked massages at Aqua Urban Spa. It was really great. The spa itself is quite small but all your basic spa needs are met. There is a... More

I'm a bit mixed about this Spa, but don't know if that's because I've been spoilt with other spa experiences. On finding the place, the exterior building next door was all scaffolded up and wasn't very welcoming, but this didn't affect the experience at all. We booked a great deal package that included use of the pool and its facilities... More

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.
