On a tree-lined street in a residential neighborhood, 20 minutes from the airport
Eurostars Angli is located on a tree-lined street in a hilly, residential area outside the city center. It's a 20-minute drive from Barcelona Airport and within walking distance of several shops and restaurants, but there aren't many attractions in the immediate area beyond a university and a theme park. Public transportation is nearby, so guests can go without a car and still get around to all of the city's attractions. The most popular sights are a half-hour subway ride away.
Barcelona has the best of two worlds: the urban excitement of a modern yet historical city combined with the leisure and relaxation of a location set by the Mediterranean Sea. Tourists travel here for vibrant nightlife, excellent cuisine, beautiful Gothic and one-of-a-kind Modernist architecture, and cutting-edge design. Between these attractions and the great Mediterranean climate, there are often crowds in Barcelona. Despite the number of visitors, sights like the Sagrada Familia Cathedral, Barri Gotic neighborhood, and unusual Parc Guell are all must-see attractions.
The Catalonia capital is arguably one of the top party destinations in Spain (along with Madrid and island of Ibiza). Dynamic and multicultural, Barcelona also has a mellow feeling to it during the day. The sea breeze sweeps the streets of this thriving city, giving it an unmistakable Mediterranean vibe. Visitors can expect reliable public transportation, delicious food, wonderful hotels, charming neighborhoods, a quality city beach, and hundreds of cultural activities.
The modern 48-room Eurostars Angli is located half an hour by subway from Barcelona's city center in a residential neighborhood. The lobby and rooms have a streamlined look with sleek, dark wood floors, funky furniture, and wall-panel art. Modern amenities include small flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Some guests complain about gentle wear and tear, but the rooms are clean and offer plenty of natural light through floor-to-ceiling windows. Not everyone will like the open bathrooms, though, with frosted glass doors that lack privacy. The highlight of this hotel is the outdoor pool area (a rare find in Barcelona). There is also an on-site restaurant and snack bar. While the Eurostars Angli is a bit isolated from the city center, it offers good value for travelers looking to save some cash.
