Estacio 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.

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, bureaus de change and supermarkets.
