Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • A boutique hotel with contemporary decor
  • Great neighborhood location close to designer shops and restaurants
  • Lovely rooftop terrace with pool, Jacuzzi, and chic lounge area
  • Breakfast served daily
  • Drinks and snacks at sleek indoor lounge with bar area
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout hotel
  • Flat-screen TVs and stocked minibars in all rooms
  • DVD players, coffeemakers, and other amenities available upon request

Cons

  • Noise from communal areas can travel throughout the hotel
  • Some guest complaints of cigarette smoke odors in rooms

Bottom Line

Hotel America Barcelona is a spotless boutique close to designer shops on the stylish Passeig de Gracia thoroughfare. Rooms have plain wood furnishings with a generic feel, but beautiful parquet floors and bright accents throughout keep them from looking too chain-like. Most are spacious, with large windows that let in lots of natural light. The hotel's standout feature is a lovely rooftop terrace with a small pool and Jacuzzi, pretty city views, and chic lounge area. Inside, the property's communal areas are airy and spacious. However, this design also means that noise tends to travel throughout the hotel, which can be a problem for some -- especially light sleepers.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Just outside of the city center in the Eixample district, close to designer shopping and non-touristy restaurants

Hotel America Barcelona is located on a pretty street in the Eixample district, which is close to the city center. The hotel is not far from Passeig de Gràcia and Diagonal -- one of Barcelona's best shopping areas that is known for its designer boutiques.

Eixample is home to the city's best examples of modernist architecture, including the Sagrada Família church 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 (which is popularly known as Gayxample).

  • 20-minute drive or 54-minute bus ride from Barcelona El Prat Airport (BCN)
  • 6-minute walk to Passeig de Gracia
  • 10-minute walk to La Pedrera (Casa Milà), an unusual apartment building designed by Antoni Gaudí that is now a museum
  • 11-minute walk to Antoni Gaudí's Casa Batlló, a fantastical former house-turned-museum
  • 7-minute drive or 33-minute subway ride to Antoni Gaudí's famously eye-catching Sagrada Família church
  • 8-minute drive or 11-minute subway ride to Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art
  • 9-minute drive or 18-minute subway ride to Placa Espanya public square and transportation hub
  • 13-minute drive or 18-minute subway ride to the Barri Gótic (Gothic Quarter) for medieval architecture
  • 14-minute drive or 18-minute subway ride to Town Hall
  • 14-minute drive or 33-minute subway ride to the National Museum of Catalan Art (MNAC)
  • 14-minute drive or 19-minute subway ride to Columbus Monument
  • 16-minute drive or 28-minute subway ride to Barceloneta Beach

 Bottom Line

Hotel America Barcelona is a spotless boutique close to designer shops on the stylish Passeig de Gracia thoroughfare. Rooms have plain wood furnishings with a generic feel, but beautiful parquet floors and bright accents throughout keep them from looking too chain-like.
