Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • A comfortable boutique hotel offering good value
  • Great location in Barcelona's city center
  • Breakfast (for a fee) served in a stylish room with exposed brick
  • Lobby with avant-garde style, a small bar, laptops, and piano
  • Modern rooms have flat-screen TVs, mini-bars and large windows
  • High-tech amenities include laptops and iPod/iPad docks
  • Large family rooms and suites come with more space and additional amenities
  • Small fitness center, sauna, and free bike rentals
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout hotel

Cons

  • No outdoor pool or terrace
  • No full restaurant
  • Hotel is starting to show signs of wear and tear
  • Some rooms facing the rear have limited views
  • Bathrooms have partial glass doors that could diminish privacy

Bottom Line

This 61-room hotel, part of the tech-savvy Petit brand, is a no-frills but contemporary choice located in Barcelona's city center, a few blocks from Plaza Catalunya. There isn't much to the property (it lacks any outdoor space -- a rarity for Barcelona) but it's a good value, especially for families. Rooms are starting to show wear and tear, but high-tech amenities such as flat-screen TVs, iPod docks and laptops help compensate. Balconies and exercise bikes are available in some, while others lack views, so be sure to specify room priorities when checking in. The quirky, modern lobby has multiple seating areas, additional laptops, and a small bar. Meanwhile, a more sophisticated breakfast room has soft lighting and beautiful exposed brick. Wi-Fi is free throughout the property.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Just a few blocks from Plaza Catalunya, the centermost landmark of Barcelona

The Petite Palace Museum is located within walking distance to the Gothic Quarter, as well as the Plaza Catalunya, which marks the heart of Barcelona's center. The Plaza Catalunya is an important landmark containing fountains and statues, and is the spot where many of the city's most famous streets meet. For instance, Las Ramblas -- the bustling pedestrian-friendly street mall -- begins here, as does Passeig de Gracia, with its ample shopping and restaurant options. Many metro stations are nearby, such as Passeig de Gracia, Universitat, and Catalunya. In addition, the Aerobus stop is just a few blocks away and offers direct access from Barcelona International Airport (BCN) -- a much cheaper alternative than taking a taxi.

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.

  • 20-minute drive or 46 minutes by bus to Barcelona International Airport (BCN)
  • 2-minute walk to Passeig de Gracia, lined with restaurants and shops
  • 6-minute walk to Plaza Catalunya
  • 10-minute walk to the Gothic Quarter
  • 6-minute drive or 9 minutes by subway to Sagrada Familia
  • 6-minute drive or a 13-minute walk to Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art
  • 7-minute drive or 10 minutes by subway to Placa Espanya
  • 10-minute drive or 11 minutes by subway to Columbus Monument
  • 11-minute drive or a 18-minute walk to Town Hall
  • 12-minute drive or 31 minutes by bus to National Museum of Art of Catalonia
  • 14-minute drive or 16 minutes by subway to Barceloneta Beach
