Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Central location near Las Ramblas
  • Beautiful modernist facade built in 1913
  • Rooftop deck with small swimming pool
  • Bar has stained-glass details and plenty of chairs
  • Some rooms have spacious terraces that offer lovely city views
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Rooms and public spaces have dated, chain-like decor
  • Interior-facing rooms have views of a wall

Bottom Line

THIS HOTEL HAS BEEN RENOVATED SINCE OUR VISIT. WE WILL UPDATE OUR REVIEW AND PHOTOS AS SOON AS WE CAN. Except for the beautiful modernist facade of the building and a few stained-glass details throughout, the HCC Regente is pretty much charmless. The rooms look as though they have not been renovated in years, with dated furnishings, wall-to-wall carpeting, and tube TVs. Some have spacious terraces with pretty street views, but the green ground covering and plastic chairs make them less appealing than they could be. Highlights include free Wi-Fi, a rooftop deck with small pool, and a central location right near Las Ramblas. Those visitors looking for a stylish and modern vibe, though, should look elsewhere.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the heart of Eixample, right on the trendy Rambla de Catalunya

Hotel HCC Regente is in the central Eixample neighborhood, right on the trendy, tree-lined Rambla de Catalunya that is home to many fashion boutiques and chic restaurants. This great location drives up not only the hotel rates, but also the noise -- since the street is busy at all hours. The hotel is also within walking distance of several popular landmarks, such as the Casa Milà and Casa Batlló buildings designed by modernist architect Antoni Gaudí. For visitors who want to explore sections of the city that are farther away, the Passeig de Gracia metro station can be reached on foot within just a few minutes.

Eixample is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Barcelona and certainly the most affluent in the downtown area, with some of the most stunning architecture you’ll find in the city center. It is characterized by its unique grid system, tree-lines streets, and Modernist architecture.

Passeig de Gracia is the main thoroughfare here, with 19th century architecture, upscale boutiques, and wonderful restaurants. The side streets are equally splendid, but somewhat quieter. The area oozes history and elegance -- but you might find the long lines in front of the tourist attractions a bit annoying, and prices are definitely higher than in the rest of the city.

  • 21-minute drive from Barcelona El Prat Airport (BCN)
  • 4-minute walk to the whimsical Casa Batlló, a former home-turned-museum designed by Antoni Gaudí
  • 9-minute walk to the quirky Casa Milá (La Pedrera) building designed by Antoni Gaudí
  • 9-minute walk to Passeig de Gràcia for high-end shopping and dining
  • 8-minute drive to Antoni Gaudí's famously eye-catching Sagrada Família church
  • 9-minute drive to the Mercat de la Boqueria public market for shopping
  • 9-minute drive to El Tablao de Carmen for flamenco dancing
  • 10-minute drive to the Camp Nou (FC Barcelona) soccer stadium
  • 11-minute drive to the Port of Barcelona
  • 12-minute drive to Monestir de Pedralbes, a former monastery that is now a museum
  • 12-minute drive to nightlife of El Born
  • 13-minute drive to the Barri Gótic (Gothic Quarter) for medieval architecture
  • 26-minute drive to Collserola Park
  • 27-minute drive to Tibidabo for panoramic views of the city and the coastline
