Neighbourhood
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.

We chose this hotel for its central location for our requirements near the Arc De Triomf and Metro (red line). The staff were very helpful and rooms were warm and clean. Ideal for a city break and would definitely use again.

Hi. Can you tell me How much breakfast is to buy if we decide to have breakfast when we arrive. And could we purchase breakfast on a daily basis? Thank you.
You can buy breakfast each day or go out it’s up to you. There was a special price offer whilst we were there, but cannot recall how much .....sorry. Afternoon tea and coffee was included in the price and it was nice to meet other guests Hope this helps.
