Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Double bed is sometimes two twins pushed together
  • Furniture in public space looks a bit tired
  • Glass doors separating bathroom from bedroom make for reduced privacy
  • Some guest complaints of noise from metro train on lower floors

Bottom Line

Grupotel Gran Via 678 is an upscale hotel with modern style. Though not huge, chic guest rooms are decently sized for a European urban hotel and feature a red, black, and white color scheme, modern artwork, and contemporary furnishings that make for a streamlined feel. All have flat-screen TVs and well-stocked minibars -- and some even have lovely views of the tree-lined street below. The modern vibe extends to the bathrooms, though the glass doors may make some guests uncomfortable. Public spaces include a small outdoor pool, casual bar, and lobby with contemporary decor, albeit somewhat tired furnishings. Comfortable, clean, and centrally located, this hotel is a solid value.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Centrally located near main thoroughfare Passeig de Gracia

Grupotel Gran Via 678 is centrally located in the neighborhood of Eixample. It is a five-minute walk from Passeig de Gracia, one of the most important streets in Barcelona for both business and shopping. Although some sights are a bit too far to reach by foot, the hotel is conveniently situated near a metro stop (so close that it may be a detractor due to noise).

Eixample is a central section of Barcelona and home to the city's best examples of modernist architecture, including the Casa Milá building and Sagrada Família church 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 found here, especially in the gay section that is popularly known as Gayxample.

  • 20-minute drive from Barcelona El Prat Airport
  • 5-minute walk to shopping and restaurants on Passeig de Gracia
  • 8-minute drive to Museu de la Cera
  • 10-minute drive to the Picasso Museum
  • 10-minute drive to the Port of Barcelona
  • 12-minute drive to Parc Güell and Casa-Museu Gaudí
  • 12-minute drive to Gran Teatre del Liceu, an opera house in Las Ramblas
  • 27-minute drive to Tibidabo Amusement Park
