|Gràcia by night|
The hotel is located at the top of Gràcia. Its main purpose is its close location to many hospital buildings that are in the area. Despite this, tourists staying in the hotel will still find that there are things to do. First and foremost, the hotel is a 15 minute walk from the famous Park Güell. This is a park that the architect, Antonio Gaudí was commissioned to design. He has added all of his trademark magic touches to the area. There are random colourful mosaics dotted throughout the park, cavernous tunnels and a platform terrace area overlooking the city. The park is free to enter and is an enjoyable way to while away the hours on a sunny day.
The hotel is also located in Gràcia. This area is popular for its nice bars, restaurants and terraces. In August it also plays host to a week-long street festival that is thought to be one of the best in Barcelona. In Gràcia it will also be possible to find most of the general amenities that you may need - internet cafés, banks, pharmacies, cash machines and supermarkets.
