Surrounded by picturesque historic buildings, winding narrow walkways and a vibrant local social scene, you can spend hours just hopping from one tapas bar to another along the hotel’s neighbouring pedestrian street. You’ll also be only a short walk from some of Barcelona’s best landmarks, restaurant and nightlife spots, including the nearby Barcelona Cathedral and the historic Barri Gotic area. When you’re ready to escape the tourist hordes outside, relax in one of the 43 intimate rooms and suites with elegant dark wooden floors, minimalist white interiors and Asian-inspired furnishings. The ambience is surprisingly peaceful given its location right in the heart of Barcelona’s action. You’ll also be only a 10 minute walk from Barcelona’s beachfront, making this an affordable choice if you’re looking to be in the heart of central Barcelona.
