No full restaurant, pool, outdoor space, or fitness center
The NH Master is a fairly no-frills hotel in the Eixample district, which is a 15-minute walk from the city center. The hotel provides a good value, but does not particularly stand out in terms of ambience or amenities. It offers 81 rooms and one suite (with balcony) furnished with the contemporary decor, flat-screen TVs, and minibars that are standard for the NH chain. Cocktails are available in the lobby and a breakfast buffet is served daily, but the hotel has limited features. The meeting rooms may appeal to business travelers, but some may be frustrated by the in-room Wi-Fi fees. Guests seeking free Wi-Fi and more amenities may prefer the nearby Hotel Constanza Barcelona.
In Barcelona's Eixample district, a residential area known for modernist architecture and monuments
The NH Master is situated in the Eixample neighborhood, a residential area known for having an abundance of modernist landmarks, including works by the famed Art Nouveau architect Antoni Gaudi. The area is just a 15-minute walk away from the city center, but feels far less touristy. The nearby Passeig de Gracia -- one of the most architecturally important streets in the city -- makes for a wonderful route to take a sightseeing stroll. It is home to some of Gaudi's landmark buildings, including the whimsical Casa Batlló, which currently operates as a museum and is just a 15-minute walk away from the hotel. Public transportation is readily accessible, as there are two metro stops and several bus routes nearby.
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).
