'Tourists' want to take their environment with them like a snail in its shell; 'Travellers' relish the local, the unique, the colorful. Fortunately, my wife, our friend and I are Travellers, or we might have missed this absolutely fantastic over-the top gem of a place. Sergio and Abel obviously love L'Antic Espai: it's obvious, from the eclectic and eccentric decor...

PROS Excellent location! Lovely area from which we walked to the area of Gracia as well as the beach. The area felt safe at night. Close to three metro stations, lots of restaurants etc. It was a treat to live in an apartment building instead of an ordinary hotel. We really liked the tiled floors – they gave the hotel...

1st. Inconvenience to dress and undress which the solution is closing the curtains, is not a private home where the entire space belongs to us with flowers around. 2nd. There are no pictures anywhere, including on our website, where they can get an idea that each room has a private terrace with chairs and table for individual enjoyment. The terrace...

This hotel is by no means a top hotel in Barcelona. It is about half the price of other top hotels, and that is about correct for what you get. Rooms on the busy street are noisy. The reviews are simply too high for what we experienced there.

L'Antic Espai was a charming stay in awesome Barcelona. The room I had was small but completely sufficient and decorated beautifully. I used their online reservation and was offered a discounted rate which was honoured when I arrived. Location is quite central with the closet metro station about 2 blocks away and Las Ramblas not more than 5-10min as well....

Good morning, First of all. We are not a sketchy business. It is a very unfair review . Where we are guilty, where we appear like criminals. We would like to say that our business is our guests.

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.
