Stayed here for three nights. Room was ok with en-suite. Clean and tidy and relatively inexpensive. About a ten minute walk from Plaza Catalunya and near to the Aerobus stop at Plaza Universitat.

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.
