Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the heart of the Gothic Quarter, a few blocks from the opera house

The Petit Palace Opera Garden is located in a historic building on a side street in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter. The hotel is easy walking distance from both the opera house and Las Ramblas, the bustling pedestrian-friendly street known for shopping. Hotel guests have easy access to La Boqueria market and Passeig de Gracia for upscale shopping. Attractions a little further away can be reached by utilizing the Liceu Metro station near the hotel. The Aerobus also stops a short distance from the hotel and offers direct access to Barcelona International Airport (a much cheaper alternative than 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.

  • 24-minute drive or 40 minutes by bus/subway to Barcelona International Airport (BCN)
  • 2-minute drive or a 3-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 8 minutes by subway to Placa Espanya
  • 13-minute drive or 16 minutes by subway to Barceloneta Beach
  • 13-minute drive or 20 minutes by subway to Sagrada Familia Cathedral
  • 16-minute drive or 23 minutes by subway to National Museum of Art of Catalonia
