Review Guitart Grand Passage Hotel, Barcelona

Page Content

Guitart Grand Passage Hotel
Guitart Grand Passage Hotel is a distinctive and large hotel in uptown Eixample. Its exterior is futuristic, taking up a large street corner with its many windows forming pole-like shapes at intervals around the edges. Its lobby area is surprisingly small, following the looming presence of the exterior. It is a bright space, with numerous spotlights dotted along the ceiling. Two large square mirrored pillars situated at either side of the front desk break up the area. Two sets of black leather couches and two spiral staircases add to the symmetrical feel of the space.

The hotel is located two minutes walk from Avenida Diagonal - one of Barcelona's largest roads, running through the heart of the city to the seafront. It is a 10 - 15 minute walk from areas such as Passeig de Gràcia and Rambla de Catalunya - popular for their shops, bars and restaurants. The hotel is located up from the bustling areas of Eixample, allowing peaceful surroundings. This may not appeal to those who wish to be at the centre of the action.

Those who wish to do some walking in Barcelona may need to bring comfortable walking shoes. The Ramblas is a 20 - 30 minute walk from the hotel. However, a walk into Barcelona city centre could prove picturesque - both Rambla de Catalunya and Passeig de Gràcia lead to the centre, at Plaça de Catalunya (the top of the Ramblas).

Passeig de Gràcia is a 15 minute walk from the hotel and is the home of two famous Gaudí buildings - Casa Batlló and La Pedrera.
