Located in the central, historic district of L'Eixample
The Eurostars Monumental is located in the modernist maze of L'Eixample. This central section of Barcelona is home to the city's best examples of modernist architecture, including the Casa Milá building and Sagrada Família Cathedral that were both designed by Antoni Gaudí. In addition to its eccentric architecture, this district is known for a vibrant nightlife scene, with many trendy bars and clubs, especially in the gay section that is popularly known as Gayxample. L'Eixample is a great neighborhood for sightseeing, but some feel that sister properties Eurostars BCN Design Hotel and Cristal Palace are a bit more centrally located within the neighborhood.
Barcelona is an eclectic city that is renowned for its historic and remarkable architecture, vibrant club scene, and urban beaches along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. The capital of the Catalan region, Barcelona speaks its own language -- literally and figuratively. Known for a frenetic pace, the city is full of modernist architecture, medieval history, quirky fashion, and endless tapas bars.
Located in the popular L'Eixample neighborhood, the Eurostars Monumental is part of the Eurostars chain (with several hotels in Barcelona). This 45-room property isn't as luxe as the nearby Eurostars BCN Design, but decor is fresh and attractive, and rates here are cheaper. Rooms have dark wood headboards, coffee-colored throws, tan furniture, funky light fixtures, and wall-mounted flat-screen TVs; some have balconies with views of Sagrada Familia Cathedral. Marble bathrooms are spacious with large vanities. Amenities are few, but there's a small lobby bar serving coffee and cocktails.
