This is the 2nd time I've stayed at Hotel Market and I have a hard time staying anywhere else. The rooms are well designed, staff is great, free bottled water and apples in the lobby are excellent touches. Wifi is free throughout, and the restaurant is excellent for lunch or dinner. (Didn't try the breakfast, as its far more economical to grab a coffee and pastry at Bellapan across the street for €1.40.)
The neighborhood surrounding the hotel is great and we spent a lot of time there. Mainly caters to locals, so being able to habla espanol, or better yet, Catalan, will help. Sant Antoni market is across the street abs is being totally renovated, but the shops are open in a temporary location. Many good restaurants, cafes and bars are nearby (including the fantastic Bar
Ramon). Yet, it is very quiet at night. Two metro stops are walking distance, the airport express bus stops just around the corner. Las Ramblas is a 15 minute walk away if you want to see if you can outsmart the pickpockets. Passeig de Gracia also a 15 min walk.
Fantastic place to stay. Perfect combination of price, location and comfort.
