Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • A hip boutique with rates that are (usually) fair
  • Quiet location, walking distance to popular tourist attractions
  • Tapas and cocktails at stylish restaurant with understated decor
  • Chic rooftop terrace with city views (open in warmer months)
  • Rooms have flat-screen TVs, minibars, and modern furnishings
  • Spacious bathrooms with minimalist fixtures and rain showerheads
  • Some rooms have French balconies or private terraces
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout hotel

Cons

  • Some suites have two twin beds in lieu of a double bed (common in Spain)
  • Rear rooms can be a bit on the dark side, as some face a brick wall
  • Some complaints of mediocre breakfast at Bruc 33 Tapas restaurant
  • No pool or fitness center

Bottom Line

This 46-room value hotel combines modern comforts with classic European touches, such as French balconies that overlook a quiet street in the Eixample district. The Hotel Constanza prides itself on providing a hip atmosphere: communal areas have low lighting and stylish decor. The earthy color palette and modern vibe extend to the guest rooms, which offer updated amenities and spacious bathrooms with sleek, minimalist fixtures. Some rooms are a bit on the dark side, though, as ones in the rear of the hotel may face a brick wall. A highlight is the seasonal rooftop terrace with city views, although it is only open during warmer months.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A quieter location in the Eixample District, close to some of the city's finest examples of modernist architecture

The Hotel Constanza has a nice position in the Eixample district, just outside of the city center. This area is renowned for its modernist architecture (including famous works by Antoni Gaudí) and there are various landmarks to see near the hotel. One of Gaudí's most whimsical creations, known as Casa Batlló, is less than a 15-minute walk away. This distinctive building looks straight out of a fairytale and can be explored both inside and out, since it currently operates as a museum. The Hotel Constanza stands on a side street, which keeps it quiet at night, yet restaurants, shops, and public transportation are all within close proximity. The Urquinaona Metro Station is less than a five-minute walk away.

In addition to its eccentric architecture, Eixample 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).

  • 19-minute drive or 59-minute bus ride from Barcelona El Prat Airport (BCN)
  • 13-minute walk to Casa Batlló, a whimsical building by Antoni Gaudi that is now a museum
  • 15-minute walk or 8-minute drive to the Barri Gótic (Gothic Quarter) for medieval architecture
  • 6-minute drive to the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art
  • 7-minute drive or 22-minute bus ride to Placa Espanya public square and transportation hub
  • 8-minute drive or 13-minute bus ride to Antoni Gaudi's famous Sagrada Familia church
  • 8-minute drive or 18-minute bus ride to Town Hall
  • 10-minute drive or 17-minute bus ride Columbus Monument
  • 11-minute drive or 36-minute bus ride to the National Museum of Catalan Art (MNAC)
  • 12-minute drive or 17-minute bus ride to Barceloneta Beach
