The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and spacey. The location was near the center (10 min. walk) and the metro station. Also it was very easy and fast to be there from the airport.

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
