Map & Directions

It's about 15 minutes by taxi from Barcelona Airport, although the journey may take longer at peak times. By public transport the journey is longer -- take the bus from the airport to Plaza Catalunya (35 minutes), and then catch Line 3 on the metro to Paral∙lel station (15 minutes), which is five minutes from the hotel.

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


New in 2011, Hotel Grums is "small but impeccable" with "much to offer," says Fodor's. Located in Poble Sec, an urban residential neighborhood, it’s an easy walk from the harbor (making it an excellent choice for a pre- or post-cruise stay).

Las Ramblas, known for its shops, restaurants and street entertainment, and attractions such as the Palau Güell and the Picasso Museum are a similar distance. If you don't feel like walking, the nearest metro (Paral∙lel) is just five minutes away.

The hotel's huge outdoor terrace is ideal for a lazy alfresco breakfast or evening drinks at the funky bar (open 7-11pm). Free tea, coffee and hot chocolate are provided in the lobby throughout the afternoon.

Another highlight is the fashionable spa with a small pool, Finnish sauna, steam bath and an ice fountain (extra charge). Treatments, from massages to oxygen facials, are available to book. There’s also an on-site restaurant, serving Mediterranean dishes.

The bright, modern rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, wooden floors and cute rugs. Complimentary bottled water is replenished daily. The bathrooms are a little unusual -- some have sinks outside the bathroom and others are glass walled -- but are perfectly functional and come with either walk-in showers or bathtubs.

Larger rooms have fold-out beds to accommodate families, and the Terrace room on the sixth floor has the biggest balcony. Interestingly, each room comes with an information pack about a specific Barcelona landmark, street, festival or figure, and every floor has a different theme, from famous sights to the city's architecture. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.

Enjoyed Most: The breakfast buffet was better than even that of the most opulent hotel in Barcelona - which we were privileged to experience at the expense of the cruise line.
Other Comments: The hotel bar and restaurant - which are separate from the breakfast buffet - are also excellent.

Enjoyed Most: The staff was very accommodating. We arrived early and they allowed us to keep our bags at the front desk while we explored the city and waited for our room to be ready. All of the staff spoke English which made it very easy. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. Also, the breakfast provided in the morning was top notch!
