There are many nearby cash points on Passeig de Gràcia, which doesn't help with the temptation of so many high-class shops. Plaça Catalunya and Las Ramblas are less than a 10 minute walk away. On Plaça Catalunya you will find Corte Inglés a comprehensive department store and supermarket, and FNAC which sells English papers and magazines.
