It is located a five-minute walk from Plaza Universitat. This square is always a hive of activity. It is the home of Barcelona University. The square is also adjacent to Plaça de Catalunya. This is one of Barcelona's most iconic squares. It is home to the department store - El Corte Inglés, Hard Rock Café and many other bars and restaurants. Plaça de Catalunya also sits at the top of the Ramblas. Here is where you will be able to find all necessary amenities - pharmacies, banks, internet cafés and supermarkets. It is also a popular tourist attraction with street entertainers and souvenir shops.

In the other direction, a ten-minute walk from the hotel, it is possible to find the Mercat de Sant Antoni. The building itself has a distinctive exterior with large arches and an iron framework. It is home to a roofed food market. On Sundays, around the edges of the market there are stalls selling books, comics, stamps and records - a collector's paradise.
The hotel's location, a ten-minute walk from the Plaza Espanya will make it convenient for those attending conferences or conventions at the Fira de Barcelona - one of Barcelona's largest conference centres. The square sits directly in front of Montjuïc Mountain, where a whole world of outdoor pools, gardens and views are available. Barcelona's palace is also in the square, offering an art gallery and the famous Magic Fountain show. See our Guide to the Magic Fountains.
