If you are a foodie, a shopaholic, football fan, Flamingo lover, Gaudi appreciator, then all you have to do is just walk out of the hotel building. Given the location, most of the hotel are in small land area and the rooms are small but nevertheless perfectly functional. The staff is...

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.
