In the business district of Barcelona -- close to public transportation, restaurants, and shops -- but a bit far from tourist attractions
Hotel NH Constanza is situated in Les Corts, also known as Barcelona's business district. Situated on the western side of the city, the area (though not as attractive as others in Barcelona) is home to many hotels, restaurants, and shops. The massive L'illa shopping complex is next door, but the city's most popular landmarks are not within walking distance. The center of town is a 15-minute subway ride away. Las Contes is the nearest metro station and just a short walk from the hotel.
Barcelona is an eclectic city that is popular for its historic and remarkable architecture, vibrant club scene, and urban beaches along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. The capital of the Catalan region, Barcelona speaks its own language -- literally and figuratively. Known for a frenetic pace, the city is full of modernist architecture, medieval history, quirky fashion, and endless tapas bars. Located on the northeast coast of the Iberian Peninsula, the city has a Mediterranean climate with mild, humid winters and warm, dry summers.
The 308-room NH Constanza is a sleek option for those needing to be in Les Corts -- Barcelona's business district. The minimalist design may not appeal to traditionalists, but the open layout and extensive use of glass makes for an airy feel in the public spaces. Rooms emulate this modernist look, with minimalist furnishings and unadorned walls. As expected from the NH chain, all offer flat-screen TVs and spacious bathrooms. City views can be enjoyed from the rooftop terrace, but the pool is far more narrow than the one at sister property NH Calderon. The hotel's spa offers hydraulic water and massage treatments, but the fitness center could use some additional equipment.
