Located a stones throw from Placa da Catalunya but that's about all this place has going for it. We booked a double room with private bathroom and we got sucked back in time to a 1970's bedsit (think of the show Rising Damp if you're...More

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
