The Eurostars Cristal Palace is a less expensive and less upscale sister to the nearby BCN Design Hotel. But this hotel is a great pick for its location just off Passeig de Gracia, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and sights. Some of the 150 rooms are on the small side, but they're clean and contemporary with flat-screen TVs, striped bedding accents, wood floors, and modern bathrooms. The hotel does not have a fitness center or a spa, but it is a good choice for business travelers as there are several meeting rooms and all rooms are equipped with free Wi-Fi. There is also an on-site restaurant, Pictory, and lobby bar.
