Get the most out of your visit to Barcelona when you stay at this superior 4 star design hotel just a few steps from Passeig de Gracia, right in the heart of the buzzing European city. Here, you will get to enjoy a prime central location, excellent hospitality and service, and comfortable and relaxing accommodation. Almost all of the city’s main tourist attractions and places of interest are within short walking distance, and the others can be reached easily on public transport or taxi. Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona’s main shopping avenue, is only 200m from the hotel’s doorstep, where you can find an abundance of first-class restaurants, coffee shops and bars, as well as of course rows of designer boutiques and flagship stores.
The staff working at the 24 hour reception and concierge desks, and throughout the property, are dedicated in providing the very best service for every individual guest. They are approachable and friendly, and always willing to offer recommendations for local dining options or hidden gems that you won’t find in the guide books. Guests of this design hotel just few steps from Passeig de Gracia will be granted access to all the facilities and home comforts expected of a 4-star hotel, including free WiFi, car rental desk, library, currency exchange and luggage room, plus much more.
A stand-out feature on the nearby Passeig de Gracia is the colourful Casa Batllo, an extraordinary 19th century building designed by Gaudi. This house is just one of Gaudi’s various masterpieces around the city, and probably the most popular, along with Park Guell. The façade facing the fashionable avenue is recognisable for its fairytale-like design, with brightly coloured mosaics, intricately carved windows and bone-shaped pillars. Inside, there is a maze of wonderful details to be explored and discovered. The informative audio guide is well worth picking up on your way in and takes about an hour from start to finish.
Of course, what Passeig de Gracia is so well-known and visited for is its plethora of fashion boutiques and stores. You can find almost anything here, from exclusive, high-end labels such as Dolce & Gabbana, Stella McCartney and Prada, to everyone’s favourite high street brands, including Zara, Nike and H&M. There are also several independent stores, stocking wedding dresses to cashmere scarfs, as well as beauty and cosmetic emporiums and luxury stationary shops. Quite often, there are one-off events celebrating the opening of a new store, or collaboration between brands, which sees the street fill up with locals and tourists alike and hit the shops until well after dark.
