3 Star Hotel excellently located just by Catalunya Square, Beside Paseo De Gracia, important shooping and business area. Hotel was build in 1850 and fully renovated in 1991. This now rather run down grand townhouse hotel still retains plenty of character, and the price, for the position, is hard to beat. The public rooms remind you of a faded baroque London club, hung with long forgotten portraits, with a wonderful parquet-floored dusty green sitting room stuffed with Spanish antiques and ornate gilt mirrors on the first floor, and a delightful rooftop terrace of potted plants away from the traffic at the back. The guest room corridors are wide and light, wood panelled, while the rooms are basic but comfortable – again panelled, with basic furnishings, simple marble bathrooms and pink and cream stucco-work. Colourfully patterned bedspreads and rugs complete the old world Spanish feel.
