Map of H10 Casanova

This property is located in the city's Eixample neighborhood. Nicknamed the "Gayxample," this energetic area is known for its thriving gay scene, its nightclubs, its fashionable boutiques, and tons of bars and restaurants. H10 Casanova is a short walk to the University of Barcelona, and within walking distance to attraction-packed areas such as Passeig de Gracia, Las Ramblas, and the Gothic Quarter.

Eixample is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Barcelona and certainly the most affluent in the downtown area, with some of the most stunning architecture you’ll find in the city center. It is characterized by its unique grid system, tree-lines streets, and Modernist architecture. It is also where many of the major sights are, such as La Pedrera, Casa Batllo, and even the jaw-dropping Sagrada Familia cathedral.

Passeig de Gracia is the main thoroughfare here, with 19th century architecture, upscale boutiques, and wonderful restaurants, and it is just four blocks from the hotel. The side streets are equally splendid, but somewhat quieter. The area oozes history and elegance -- but you might find the long lines in front of the tourist attractions a bit annoying, and prices are definitely higher than in the rest of the city.
