|Hotel Avenida Palace Local|
The Avenida Palace Hotel occupies a privileged location on wide, leafy Gran Via right between the popular Rambla de Catalunya and the shopping heaven of Passeig de Gràcia. Passeig de Gràcia is also where two of Gaudí's famous architectural masterpieces stand. The hotel is next to the cinema and the Passeig de Gràcia metro station is right outside the hotel. There are many nearby cash points on Passeig de Gràcia, which doesn't help with the temptation of so many high-class shops. Plaça de Catalunya and Las Ramblas are less than a 10 minute walk away. On Plaça de Catalunya you will find Corte Inglés a comprehensive department store and supermarket, and FNAC which sells English papers and magazines.
