This charming hidden gem of a hotel ticked all the boxes for us for our stay in Barcelona. Beautifully appointed, you feel as though you are staying in an elegant French home. The breakfasts were superb and were all served in a lovely lounge where you tended to want to linger. The staff were exceptionally helpful and thoughtful and our... More

The hotel only has 9 rooms. We chose one of the rooms with a balcony on Carrer de Provença. The open doors allowed a nice, cool breeze into the room, but... More

PRO'S: This is a truly great six room hotel or B&B. We arrived with a sick friend and they were extremely helpful in getting a doctor to the hotel in the evening. The breakfast buffet is all you can imagine- fresh fruits, various breads, regional cheeses, meats and four types of fresh juices. The rooms are typically small by American... More

We stayed here in September for our honeymoon and it was such a lovely hotel. We have been to Barcelona before so didn't need to stay right in the centre. This hotel is situated just off the Passeig de Gracia and was perfect for us as we could still walk to Las Ramblas but saw other parts of the city.... More

At first look, I was quite apprehensive as the taxi dropped me to the address mentioned and there was not a sign in sight to confirm I was at the right address.

Room was very quiet and dark for sleeping, with a very comfortable bed. Staff were extremely helpful enabling us to leave baggage before we checked-in and after we checked-out. Staff also gave a recommendation for a fabulous vegetarian restaurant nearby. Breakfast was included and the quality and range was great. Loved our little street-view terrace.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
