Oyster Hotel Review

Majestic Hotel & Spa Barcelona


Fabulous location along the Passeig de Gracia, near upscale shopping and Gaudi monuments

The Majestic Hotel & Spa is situated right in the heart of modernist Barcelona, next to Gaudi monuments -- the Gaudi Museum is two blocks away -- on Passeig de Gracia. The location is great for getting around on foot and there are plenty of upscale shops around the hotel (Gucci, Chanel, Hermes, and more). For dining, there are numerous restaurants within walking distance. In addition, Plaza de Catalunya and Las Ramblas -- the famous pedestrian thoroughfare -- are both a 10-minute walk away.

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.
