Hotel Location and Facilities

Gran Via is a main road and therefore has good facilities. There is a terrace café right next to the hotel on the corner, and a pharmacy on the opposite corner. The Club D'Ore directly opposite is in fact a cinema, but doesn't play films in English unfortunately. Look out for cinemas with "VO = version original" for films in their original language.

If you turn left out of the hotel then you will come across two banks just a few steps away. Walking into the centre of the city will take no more 10 minutes, the nearest metro stop at Universitat is a shorter distance. Alternatively, if you want to see Plaça Espanya and Montjuïc then just carry on walking down Gran Via in the opposite direction and you will see it in 10-15 minutes.

How to travel from the airport to the hotel

How to arrange your transport from Barcelona Airport in advance of your trip.

You can either arrange a private transfer or minibus shared transfer.

Private Transfer A private transfer is dedicated for you and your party only. The driver will be waiting at your arrivals gate holding a sign with your name on it. Your driver will assist you with your luggage to your own private vehicle and you will be driven directly to your hotel.

Minibus Transfer The shared minibus transfer option is cheaper than the private transfer. Unlike a private transfer you would need to make your way to a dedicated meeting point and the vehicle may be shared with other passengers. You will be taken to your hotel however there may be some stops for other passengers along the way.
