|Reservation Information For The Sunotel Junior Hotel|
Sunotel Junior Hotel is located in uptown Eixample. The area has its own merits, but it is not particularly close to the main tourists areas. It will be necessary to catch the metro, rather than walk, to the majority of Barcelona's sights. However, the hotel has a lot to offer - it is a two star hotel with a rooftop pool, free internet, 24 hour room service and a bar.
The hotel exterior has a typical hotel style - marble walls, a glass façade and flags hanging above the entrance door. On entering the lobby it is small but bright - white floors and glass windows ensure that the area has a feeling of space. The lobby is clean and appears to have been recently renovated. There is a seating area with comfortable stripy green, cream and maroon couches. Plants are dotted around the room and the front desk towards the back of the room.

Seasoned travellers with experience in tackling transport systems will cope well in this hotel. However, those who like to have the heart of the city on their doorstep may choose to opt for more central accommodation.

The cinema has its own small café, to sit and pontificate about the merits of the film once its over.
