The hotel is located 10 minutes walk from Gran Via Corts Catalanes. This large road links Plaza Universitat to Plaza Espanya. If you are interested in taking an afternoon stroll it will probably take you just over half an hour to walk between the two squares. The street itself has its share of nice cafés and buildings. Plaza Universitat is the home of Barcelona's old University buildings. Plaza Espanya is also where you will find Barcelona's palace.
The hotel is a five-minute walk from Passeig de Gràcia. This is one of Barcelona's most prized gems. The wide street is lined with old and decorative street lamps and the pavement is covered in Gaudí inspired stones. It is also the home of two of Gaudí's most famous buildings - Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. Casa Batlló is the smaller of the two. It has a large sculpture of a dragon's tail on the roof and its façade is dotted with ornate balconies. La Pedrera has a sea theme running throughout. Its iconic spiral staircase can be seen on posters and postcards throughout Barcelona.
The hotel is a 5 minute walk from Plaza Catalunya. This is the square that sits at the top of the Ramblas. This is where you will find many useful amenities, such as internet cafés, bureaus de change, supermarkets and pharmacies.
