We stayed 3 nights in Hotel Via Augusta. We chose this hotel because it was some distance from the centre of Barcelona but had nearby transport facilities. If driving, it is a little tricky to find and there is very limited parking outside for loading and unloading. The hotel car park is a 5 or 10 minute walk away in an underground car park and costs a very reasonable 10 euro daily. A Metro station is quite close to the hotel and the nearest tour bus stop is about a 15 minute walk close to La Pedrera.
The staff were all very welcoming, friendly and helpful. We had some issues with our room on the first night but these were resolved quickly and efficiently the following morning.
We ate beakfast in the hotel every morning. The buffet is comprehensive and should suit all tastes. There is also a simpler, cheaper option of a coffee and pastry.
There is no communal sitting area in the hotel but there is a small, open terrace on the 9th floor.
There are many restaurants and bars within a 10 to 15 minute walk particularly on the other side of Avinguda Diagonal.
Overall it is good value for money and would recommend this hotel to friends and would not hesitate to stay there again on any future visit to Barcelona.
