Excellent hotel!! Staff were friendly and helpful, recommended nice places to eat. Rooms were clean and comfortable with free Wifi. Excellent location, on busy road but couldn't hear any traffic when windows closed. We struggled a little bit to find it, but only because we were looking for a name above a door or at street level, and it didn't...

This hotel and my room satisfied all my criteria of location, cleanliness, safety and comfort as a solo traveller. The staff were super helpful, full kudos to Alfred and Hector! The hotel is not difficult to locate once you get your orientation right - there's a huge signage of the hotel's name about 3-4 stories up on the exterior of...

I booked this hotel directly through their website, a month before my trip, hoping for the best. I emailed them weeks before to confirm that I booked a room with a view (they cost extra) and they replied that I had. The day before I am to leave I receive an email that they have changed my reservation to a...

Dear Mary, We informed you about the problem with the booking in advance and gave you various options (amongst which cancelling without charge) and you selected one. We gave you the 20 euro refund in cash while you were at the hotel, what is the problem with that? The room you were given on the last night does NOT smell...

The Hotel Ginebra has one of the great locations in Barcelona. It's just a few steps from everything you could want, shopping, food and tour buses. It's a very short walk to La Rambla and Gaudi's Palau Güell. Both are must sees in Barcelona. The hotel is also a short walk to one of our favorite tapas restaurants, Ciudad Condal....

Lovely hotel, very clean and in a good location. There are a lot of shops and metro stations nearby. We stayed in a triple room, it was very spacious and nicely decorated. The wifi always worked in our room.

I was extremely dubious about booking a one star hotel in Barcelona, but based on TripAdvisor reviews I did and was not at all disappointed. Easy access - airport bus pulls up 100 meters away, and the metro station is ten steps from the hotel front door. The hotel is within a beautiful old building right on the corner of...

Dear Amir, The cancellation policy is clearly stated where you make the reservation, on the hotel page of any agency you might use to make your reservation. Every hotel has an individual cancellation policy which is designed to protect the hotels from people booking lots of rooms and then cancelling close to arrival date. All you have to do when...

When we arrived the people could not have been more kinder, taking the time to explain everything to us and local attractions.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
