Eixample, Barcelona, Spain

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • No pool or fitness center
  • Far from tourist attractions
  • Some rooms are on the small side
  • Bed linens are a little lackluster

Bottom Line

This small, contemporary hotel may be better suited for business travelers, due to its location near the city's financial district and its limited amenities. The hotel offers a full-service restaurant that serves breakfast and Mediterranean cuisine, as well as a bar with lounge space and an outdoor terrace with dining area. However, the property lacks a fitness center and pool. The hotel houses 74 rooms, which are decorated in a contemporary fashion typical of the Zenit brand: wood floors, striped wallpaper, and wood furnishings. Amenities include flat-screen TVs, pillow menus, and minibars -- some rooms have unfurnished balconies overlooking the street below. Guests traveling for business may appreciate the four meeting rooms and free Wi-Fi throughout.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Ideal for business travelers and those looking for a non-touristy setting outside the city

The Hotel Zenit Borrell is located in the financial area of the Eixample district, just a bit too far to walk to the city center or shopping along Passeig de Gracia. The location is best suited for business travelers who have meetings nearby, though leisure guests in search of tranquil surroundings may enjoy this quiet location. The nearest metro station is Hospital Clinic, which can transport guests to the city center in just three short stops. For those looking to explore the actual neighborhood surrounding the hotel, there are plenty of authentic cafes, restaurants, and shops -- as well as conveniences such as supermarkets and banks.

Eixample is 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 (which is popularly known as Gayxample).

  • 11-minute drive or 35-minute subway ride to Columbus Monument
  • 12-minute drive or 27-minute subway ride to the Barri Gótic (Gothic Quarter) for medieval architecture
  • 13-minute drive or 29-minute subway ride to Town Hall
  • 15-minute drive or 35-minute bus ride to Barceloneta Beach
