Where is the Le Meridien Hotel?

Le Meridien hotel Barcelona is on the Famous Ramblas in the heart of Barcelona city centre. The big advantage of staying at Le Meridien hotel is its location. As soon as you walk out of the hotel door you are right in the middle of where all the action is. You have Plaça de Catalunya only a few minutes walk away with some fabulous shopping all around that area. Plaça de Catalunya has some of the best transport links in Barcelona. It's served by both the Red and Green metro lines, RENFE trains (for the Airport and for trips outside Barcelona) the Aerobus (the express airport bus service).

You will have 3 different types of view depending on which street your room overlooks. The first is of the Ramblas. The rooms overlooking the Ramblas will be subject to some noise as this is the busiest pedestrianized walkway in Barcelona. One advantage of the Ramblas though it does not have a lot of traffic whizzing up and down as the roads on either side of the Ramblas are very small. Le Meridien is fitted with double glazed windows to help reduce noise from the street.

This side of the Meridien hotel Barcelona is the quietest as it's away from the Ramblas. But as you can see from this photo there's not a lot to see on this street and your room will have less natural light than on the other two sides of the building. It depends whether you want a quieter room or a better view. If you don't mind a little street noise then a room overlooking the Ramblas may be more suitable for you.

How much are the rooms at Le Meridien Hotel Barcelona?

The room rates vary depending on availability and the type of room that you want. The cheapest rooms are the Habitacion Classic Doble (basic double room).
