Review Century Park Hotel Barcelona

Page Content

Century Park Hotel
Century Park Hotel is located in the heart of Eixample. It is a simple hotel with friendly staff and affordable rates. It is located fifteen minutes walk from Rambla de Catalunya - a busy and leafy street that leads to Plaça de Catalunya and the Ramblas. The hotel's lobby area is small with a blue theme running throughout. From the lobby the next-door bar and café area is visible through a glass wall. A mirrored wall at the back of the lobby adds a feeling of space and light.

Those wishing to stay in a central Barcelona location may be disappointed by the energy required to reach central locations. However, the hotel's position slightly outside of the centre allows for affordable prices. Families with young children may be particularly interested in the hotel as some rooms can fit up to four beds.

Hotel Location and Facilities

Century Park Hotel is located in the centre of Eixample. It is a one-minute walk from a large main road - Avenida Roma. Estació Sants station sits at the top off this road - 15 minutes from the hotel. This is one of Barcelona's major stations. It allows easy access to the main airport. It also makes day trips out of the city to places such as Sitges or Girona fairly simple.

A five-minute walk from the hotel, on Calle Mallorca, it is possible to find the large roofed market, Mercat del Ninot. This is worth a trip to buy ingredients for a picnic, some delicious holiday gifts or simply to take in the busting local atmosphere.

The hotel is a ten-minute walk from Gran Via Cortes Catalanes. This is another of Barcelona's major roads. It provides its fair share of treats. These include the Escriba bakery, which is well known for its bespoke celebration cakes and its small and cosy café. Further down the street is Altair travel bookshop. Perhaps a strange destination for somebody who is already on holiday, however, it offers a stunning selection of coffee table books of world photography.

Plaça de Catalunya and the Ramblas is a fifteen-minute walk from the hotel. The Ramblas is popular amongst tourists for people watching and souvenir hunting. It is also a useful place to find necessary amenities such as internet cafés, banks, pharmacies, bureaux de change and supermarkets.
