Review Zenit Borrell Hotel Barcelona

Page Content

Zenit Borrell Hotel
Zenit Borrell Hotel has a very modern exterior. Minimalist glass balconies, red walls and metal pillars ensure that the hotel looks different to the classic Barcelona hotel. Its lobby area is long. It leads to a bar and restaurant area at the back of the space. Behind the front desk, there is a bar area, with high stools, adding a casual air to an otherwise formal space. Wide black pillars punctuate the lobby and sit well next to the white marble floor.

The hotel is located in Eixample - the area known to be Barcelona's most affluent. It is a 2 minute walk from a major road - Avenida Roma. Tourists may be in search of a hotel slightly closer to the heart of the city; however, business people may be pleased with the close proximity to the station and the business area of town. There are also extensive business facilities in the hotel.
