We like small sites, possibly because Barcelona is so giant, and in a small place you feel protected, you feel as at home. But it is also true that we understand that people like to sleep in a hotel in the center of Barcelona to get more day. You seem to move better and faster when you can visit a lot of the city walking
For that reason, our proposal today is the Barcelona City Hotel (Hotel Universal), a hotel located almost right in front of Casa Batlló , just 1 minute walking away (walking!) from Passeig de Gràcia, for us one of the most beautiful streets of Barcelona.
The Barcelona City Hotel is a small and family one star hotel. It gives you everything you want during your trip to Barcelona. Obviously, you have a 24-hour reception, lift, rooms with private bathrooms, and other details such as breakfast buffet (free if you book on their website), wi-fi high speed computer Internet connection that you can use freely when you need and the friendly and close treatment by BCN City Hotels team.
It is surrounded by restaurants and bars, and shops and the nearest station (which comes and goes from the airport) is directly opposite the hotel door. It also has parking nearby if needed with very favorable rates for its guests.
¿Qué ver cerca del Barcelona City Hotel?
In fact, near the Barcelona City Hotel you can see … everything!
Very, very close (5 minutes walk) also it is located La Pedrera, another great work of Gaudí.
In Passeig de Gràcia you can also admire the architecture, and go because it is part of the Barcelona Shopping Line
You are also very close to Plaza Catalunya, the hub of the city, that divides the Eixample of Raval district.
