Review Eurostars Cristal Palace Hotel, Barcelona

Page Content

Eurostars Cristal Palace Hotel
Eurostars Cristal Palace Hotel is located less than a 1 minute walk from Passeig de Gràcia - one of Barcelona's most popular and glamorous streets. It is an old school hotel offering a 4 star rating and service at reasonable prices.

From the exterior Eurostars Cristal Palace Hotel is understated - a modern glass canopy and silver sign adorn the entrance. The lobby area is welcoming - with muted tones and soft lighting. There are green marble floors and a generous helping of open spaces. The front desk is to the right of the area, with seating to the left. Sofas of beige and brown are punctuated by a bright red velvet couch, adding a splash of colour to the surroundings. Small cactus plants with red flowers provide some necessary quirk.

The hotel is well situated for those who wish to be at the heart of Barcelona's districts of shopping and culture. Located a 30 second walk from Passeig de Gràcia metro station, the whole of Barcelona is within easy reach.

Hotel Location and Facilities

Passeig de Gràcia 's Ornate Street Lamps
Passeig de Gràcia 's Ornate Street Lamps

Eurostars Cristal Palace Hotel is located a 1 minute walk from Passeig de Gràcia. This is a road that runs from Plaça de Catalunya and is well-known for its designer shops and Gaudí buildings. The street itself is beautiful - it is lined with ornate street lamps and is paved with patterned paving stones.

Shoppers will be pleased to find the hotel located a 5 minute walk from large designer stores such as Burberry, Prada, Gucci and Loewe. Passeig de Gràcia is also the home of a design store that is renowned in Spain - Vinçon. This large old building houses a whole world of design. Inside its stunning stone alcoves it is possible to find furniture, art, kitchen appliances and everything in-between. It may prove a good place to buy some interesting gifts to bring home.

Passeig de Gràcia is also home to two Gaudí buildings - Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. Casa Batlló is closest to the hotel and on the same side of the street. It is a relatively small façade sitting between two more modern buildings and is a wonderful escape from reality in the centre of the city. Its colourful mosaic walls are dotted with large and distinctive balconies and its roof has been created to look like a dragon's tail.

It is the sister restaurant of Barcelona's famous Comerç 24 - a pioneer in the El Bulli style creative cooking camp. It serves traditional Spanish tapas with touches of style, such as a 'Bikini' - a toasted ham and cheese sandwich that is the staple of all Barcelona cafés served with truffle oil.
