We traveled from India to Barcelona and booked two rooms here. The stay for 3 nights was really good. We were welcomed by a lady with specs(don't remember the name..sorry ) at the reception who helped us check in real quick. The breakfast was awesome. The hotel is very nicely located at a walking distance from Sagrada Familia and Monumental...

Great location around metro and good bars. The room was very small but it serves its purpose. The staff was very nice and the room was clean. Check in and out was fast. Also, Great buffet breakfast! I overall liked it.

The room I had was OK, typical hotel room. (A colleague of mine did mention his room was very small.) The walls unfortunately are very thin, so it's easy to be disturbed (also at night) by TV/voices/etc. from other rooms. Breakfast has enough choice & variety, but the quality of the bread could be higher. Some more healthy choices would...

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.
