Just outside the Gothic Quarter, overlooking the Mediterranean
The Eurostars Grand Marina is located by the Port of Barcelona, inside the World Trade Center complex. The Gothic Quarter is just across the street, and many attractions can be reached on foot, including Las Ramblas, some of the most beautiful churches in Barcelona, Columbus Monument, and Ciutadella Park. This location is also convenient for business travelers, as both the Montjuic and Diagonal 22@ business areas, as well as the airport, are a short drive away. The subway is a 10-minute walk away.
The Eurostars is one of the most identifiable hotels in Barcelona, with a transatlantic-shaped structure and a dramatic staircase in the lobby designed by celebrity architect Ieoh Ming Pei. The hotel embodies contemporary luxury, from the weekly opera nights, to the minimalist design, to the top-of-the-line amenities. Spacious rooms come with wonderful conveniences, such as a pillow menu, free Wi-Fi, comfortable beds, and in many, separate jetted tubs and walk-in showers. However, there are still a few lingering small flat-panel TVs in some suites. Property highlights include a small rooftop pool, a well-equipped fitness center, a restaurant with outdoor seating, and in-room massages. But there’s no full spa, and breakfast is pricey.
