Review Hotel Gran Via Barcelona

Page Content

Hotel Gran Via Barcelona
A sumptuous surprise awaits you beyond the door of the Gran Via hotel Barcelona, it was no surprise when I found out that the building used to be a 19th century palace because it still retains so much of its old-school glamour in its original furnishings and artworks. Not to mention the beautiful stained glass ceiling above the lobby, and the grand red-carpeted staircase. This combined with the hotel's excellent location just a 2 minute walk from Passeig de Gràcia makes the Gran Via a good choice for anyone.

Hotel Facilities

The hotel Gran Via Barcelona offers parking for its guests 20 metres from the hotel. There are facilities for people with a disability, and the hotel has an outdoor terrace garden which measures 500 metres squared and is a lovely place to relax in the sun during siesta time.

Hotel Location and Facilities

The Hotel Gran Via has a central location just 2 minutes from Passeig de Gràcia and a metro stop of the same name. Passeig de Gràcia is one of Barcelona's most popular streets, always full of people enjoying Gaudí's buildings and perusing the top-quality shops. Plaça de Catalunya and Las Ramblas are 10 minutes away on foot. Closer to home there is a bingo hall right next to the hotel. A cash point is just across the road, and next to that is an internet café. If you need any last minute medication then head onto Passeig de Gràcia where you will find a pharmacy at number 26. For any food I would go to Corte Inglés which is on Plaça de Catalunya and is an international department store.
