Situated in an excellent location close to Sagrada Familia (the most recognisable and significant building in Barcelona), this excellent 4 star Top Secret Hotel boasts a highly coveted address in the city, and makes the perfect home-away-from-home for the duration of your stay. From the rooftop terrace of the hotel, you’ll be able to take in stunning views of the entire city, including the iconic towers of the Sagrada Familia, the prestigious Passeig de Gracia shopping boulevard and the skyline of the medieval town centre. As well as the private terrace, the hotel also offers other services and amenities to make your stay unforgettable; room service, a postal and fax service, laundry, currency exchange and free internet access.
The well-appointed guest rooms are spacious and provide a warm, peaceful environment in which to live and relax. They are each fitted with air conditioning, mini-bar, television and double-glazed windows, and the plush en-suite bathrooms feature a make-up mirror, hairdryer and iron on request. Business guests should take full advantage of the convenient corporate floor with meeting rooms and IT services, and inquire about the private banqueting centre for large groups and events – nothing is too much to ask for the hotel’s warm and friendly staff!
Treat yourself to dine out at some of the local restaurants during your stay in the Eixample district, as there is such a wide and varied offering of local and international cuisines. Pho provides an excellent break from the usual tapas and paella, with its dedication to serve authentic Vietnamese dishes, in a simple yet effective way. The ingredients match the aesthetic – fresh and tasteful – and the prices are surprisingly low! Don’t miss their specialty soups, which come in an exotic array of shades and flavours, including the favourite bun bo hue, with veal, pork, lemon herb and spice – and all washed down with a pint of Vietnamese beer!
If you don’t feel like heading straight back to the hotel after dinner, make a stop at the Luz de Gas nightclub for classy cocktails and excellent live music. Once an old music hall, the venue has been recently renovated to return it to its former glory with grand chandeliers, mahogany furniture and classical friezes. You can pick the day of the week to visit, depending on your music tastes as the vibe changes every night from blues on a Monday to Spanish and vintage rock at the weekends. The venue occasionally welcomes international artists and charity benefit concerts, so make sure to take a look at the upcoming listings when you’re in town.
