|Area around hotel Caledonian Barcelona||Gran Via near Hotel Caledonian Barcelona|
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.
If you don't speak Spanish and you are unfamiliar with Barcelona booking a private airport transfer is a good option to consider.
