Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Built in 1870, the Hotel Granvía started life as a slinky Moderniste palace for the city’s banking aristocracy, complete with a striking glass canopy at the entrance and an enormous central atrium. A subtle renovation in 2013 has brought it gently into the 21st century but thankfully the iconic architecture detailing was all retained.

Set just off La Rambla, the hotel is ideally situated for sightseeing, right in the centre of Eixample, "Barcelona's most famous neighbourhood", according to Fodor's. It’s 15 minutes on foot to the Gothic Quarter, Barcelona’s historic cathedral and the Casa Milà. Passeig de Gràcia Metro station is two minutes’ walk down the street, bringing you to the Sagrada Familia or the beach in three stops. Plaça de Catalunya, where the airport bus stops, is just around the corner.

There is no gym, pool or restaurant here, but the basics are all covered. A full buffet breakfast is served every morning, and you’ll find a small business centre in the lobby, as well as a free coffee machine on the first floor. Wi-Fi is free throughout the property.

Rooms are calm and bright, with wooden floors, large windows and full-size tubs in the bathrooms. There is air conditioning, but only during the summer season, and the temperature is controlled at the front desk. Basic rooms face the inner courtyard, so upgrade if you prefer street views (take note, those facing the Gran Via tend to be noisier). The best have private balconies and overlook the hotel’s terrace to the rear. Family rooms can accommodate up to four, with a fold-out sofa bed.
