|Guitart Grand Passage Hotel's Grand Façade|
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.
The hotel does not have a pool, fitness centre or spa. The hotel has both a café/bar area and a restaurant - Sushi Itto and Café Milano. Café Milano offers buffet breakfast. Lunch and dinner are available in Sushi Itto - a Japanese restaurant serving sushi, soups and noodles.
There are two rooms that are available in the hotel for meetings. One of these has a capacity of up to 80 people; the other has a capacity of up to 40 people.
Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel and is free of charge.
There are two rooms in the hotel that are suitable for disabled people. They provide widened doors and special bathrooms.

There are a total of 40 rooms in the hotel, over 4 floors. All of the rooms are doubles. It is possible to add an extra bed to the rooms. This will involve a surcharge.
All rooms in the hotel have curved balconies - as is clear from the building's exterior shape. They are all suite rooms - they have a bedroom and separate living area.
All rooms contain air-conditioning, television with satellite, hair dryer, a safe and a mini-bar.
Guitart Grand Passage Hotel is located at the top end of Eixample. It is a two-minute walk from Avenida Diagonal. The area of the street that it is closest to contains some large and distinctive office buildings. These include the La Caixa bank building with a revolving floor and another hexagonal building that is dripping with plants from top to bottom. It is also a 5 - 10 minute walk to the large El Corte Inglés department store.
|Zara (Passeig de Gràcia )|
The hotel's closest metro is Hospital Clinic, a ten minute walk away. This ensures that most of Barcelona's areas are a short metro ride away. 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 Plaza 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. It is also a favourite amongst shopaholics - dotted with major stores such as Zara, Gucci and Prada. Rambla de Catalunya is a leafy, part pedestrianized street that is popular for its cafés and restaurants with terrace areas.
