Cons

  • Views from some rooms are not desirable

Bottom Line

Hotel Zenit Barcelona -- a part of the Zenit group with hotels in Spain, Portugal, and Andorra -- is a contemporary property offering good value in the Sarria-Sant Gervasi district. Though it's a healthy walk from the city center, this authentic neighborhood is filled with restaurants, bars, and shops. The 71 rooms are decorated with striped wallpaper, wood floors, and red accents. Room amenities include flat-screen TVs, pillow menus, minibars, and spacious bathrooms. Some rooms also have terraces and all have free Wi-Fi. While the hotel lacks a pool or fitness center, it does offer two dining options: Restaurant Mediterranea for traditional Spanish cuisine and Bar Zenit for drinks and small plates. A buffet breakfast is served daily and includes a gluten-free menu, but some guests choose tasty local options in the neighborhood instead.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the authentic Sarria-Sant Gervasi district, near local shops and restaurants

The Hotel Zenit Barcelona is located in a peaceful residential area known as Sarria-Sant Gervasi, just a few blocks from Avenida Diagonal. It is about a 10-minute walk from Passeig de Gràcia Boulevard, where Gaudí's famous La Pedrera and Casa Batlló can be found. The neighborhood feels more local than touristy, and there are plenty of authentic places to eat, shop, and relax. Besides close proximity to numerous train and bus routes, taxis are plentiful from the hotel and they offer reasonable fares to reach the city center. This area is also a safe place to stroll in the evenings. Make sure to check out neighborhood fiestas in adjacent Gracia for a true Barrio experience.

Barcelona -- a cosmopolitan hub for arts, culture, and nightlife -- is the second largest city in Spain and the capital of Catalonia. Located on the northeast coast of the Iberian Peninsula, the city has a Mediterranean climate with mild, humid winters and warm, dry summers.
