Right on Las Ramblas, in a building with a grand, old doorway is the Oriente Atiram Hotel Barcelona. This hotel has the advantage of being right on Las Ramblas and thus within easy access of all the main sights of interest Barcelona has to offer.

Business Facilities

The Oriente Atiram Hotel Barcelona has a sumptuous banqueting hall which can hold up to 300 people. There is also a smaller room which has a maximum capacity of 130 when set up for cocktails, or 100 when arranged as a theatre. A photocopying and fax service is available.


There are 142 rooms in the Oriente Atiram Hotel, some with views over Las Ramblas which is a bonus if, like me you are an avid people watcher. However these rooms will also be the noisiest so if you are a light sleeper it may be best for you to request the quieter rooms at the back of the hotel. The rooms are plain and comfortable, with bathroom, TV and telephone. For such a central location you do sacrifice a bit of space and additional facilities, but you won't be spending much time in the hotel anyway.

Hotel Location and Facilities

If you want to be right in the heart of the city then this is the hotel for you. Located on Las Ramblas, a stone's throw away from the Liceu theatre, and countless bars and restaurants. The Barceloneta beach is a 15 minute walk away, the aquarium is 10 minutes away and the nearest metro is Liceu, a 3 minute walk away. All of the main sights of interest are at you fingertips. You can walk into the Raval to have a coffee and see the museums or you could head into the Gothic quarter to see the Cathedral. Closer to home there is an attractive tapas bar next to the hotel and a bank just across Las Ramblas. The always busy Plaça Reial is just opposite and has a wide selection of bars, restaurants and clubs. There are also some Irish pubs next to Plaça Reial if you can't go without your sport/ beer fix. On Las Ramblas and the surrounding streets you will find a plethora of cash points, pharmacies, internet cafes and mini-markets. If you want a larger supermarket then head up Las Ramblas to Carrefour Express which stocks a good variety of food and cosmetics.
