On Passeig de Gracia in the lovely Eixample district
Located right on the Passeig de Gracia, the Eurostars BCN Design is in a great starting point for local shopping and sightseeing. The hotel is within walking distance of the modernist landmarks Casa Milà and Casa Batlló. These eye-catching buildings designed by Antoni Gaudí currently function as museums that can be explored inside and out. This district is known for a vibrant nightlife scene, with many trendy bars and clubs, especially in the gay section (which is popularly known as Gayxample). In addition, the Passeig de Gracia metro station is less than two blocks away from the hotel, which makes exploring other parts of the city easy.
The Eurostars BCN Design Hotel is a contemporary luxury property in a historic building on Passeig de Gracia. The 65 rooms have sleek playful decor (though it's a bit Ikea-esque) and lots of in-room amenities, including big flat-screen TVs, electric kettles, and upscale bathrooms. Some have extras such as deep soaking tubs in the middle of the room (which couples may enjoy), and balconies. The rooftop is a nice place to congregate during warmer months; it offers attractive views, lounge chairs, and a Jacuzzi. There is also a small fitness center, 24-hour room service, and a sun terrace. But some guests complain about street noise and lack of bathroom privacy.
