Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, steps from Las Ramblas and La Boqueria Market

The Petit Palace Boqueria is located in the center of Barcelona next to the little streets of the Gothic Quarter and close to La Boqueria public market, which dates back to the year 1217. Though the area can sometimes attract seedy characters, it is within walking distance to Plaza Catalunya, an important landmark containing fountains and statues. Las Ramblas begins here, as does Passeig de Gracia for high-end shopping. In addition, the Aerobus stop is just a few blocks away and offers direct access from Barcelona International Airport -- a much cheaper alternative than taking a taxi. Overall, the area is rich with historic monuments, restaurants, and nightlife. For public transportation, the Liceu Metro Station is closest to the hotel.

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.

  • 24-minute drive or 52 minutes by bus to Barcelona International Airport (BCN)
  • 2-minute drive or a 4-minute walk to Town Hall
  • 2-minute drive or a 5-minute walk to Gothic Quarter
  • 8-minute drive or a 14-minute walk to Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art
  • 10-minute drive or a 10-minute walk to Columbus Monument
  • 11-minute drive or 9 minutes by subway to Placa Espanya
  • 13-minute drive or 15 minutes by bus to Barceloneta Beach
  • 13-minute drive or 20 minutes by bus to Sagrada Familia Cathedral
  • 16-minute drive or 22 minutes by subway to National Museum of Art of Catalonia
