Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In 22@ District, an up-and-coming business area with a strong local vibe

The Atenea Mar is located in the heart of District 22@, an up-and-coming business area in Poblenou neighborhood. While the western part of the area still preserves the local flavor of a working class neighborhood, this part is characterized by high-rises and corporate buildings popping up in a once industrial area.

However, it is close to the beach and the waterfront, and it is well connected via public transportation to the rest of the city and the main tourist attractions. Also, its proximity to the Ronda del Litoral, one of the main thoroughfares in Barcelona, offers easy access to the airport.

  • 25-minute drive to El Prat International Airport
  • 3-minute walk to Barceloneta Beach and the waterfront
  • 20-minute subway ride to the Barri Gotic (Gothic Quarter)
  • 25-minute subway ride to Picasso Museum
  • 20-minute subway ride to La Rambla, a lively street with acrobats and mimes
  • 30-minute subway ride to Plaça Catalunya, the heart of the city
  • 30-minute subway ride to La Pedrera and Casa Batllo, wonderful examples of unique Modernist architecture.
  • 30-minute subway ride to Sagrada Familia Cathedral
  • 35-minute bus ride or 5-minute drive to Ciutadella park
  • 35-minute subway ride to the Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA)
  • 15-minute drive to Güell park, designed by acclaimed Catalan architect Antonio Gaudi
