|Area around the Hotel Cram|
The Cram Hotel Barcelona is located on the wide, up market street Aribau which is lined with historic buildings and trendy shops and bars. There is a bank right opposite the hotel and a pharmacy on the opposing corner. If you walk for 2 minutes in any direction you will come across a small supermarket. The nearest metro stop is Universitat in the Plaça just at the bottom of Aribau, a 5 minute walk away. Plaça Catalunya and Las Ramblas are a further 5 minutes walk from there. To get Passeig de Gràcia just turn right out of the hotel and keep going for 10 minutes. However if you do just want a bit of a wander, there is no better place than Eixample itself, for the architecture and tranquillity of the whole area.

The bold design of the Cram Hotel Barcelona has attracted controversy, however there are always those who will love it and I am one of them. A designer hotel in a nice neighbourhood, a welcome hotel to escape to after a long day.
