Located on tree-lined Passeo de Gracia, home to a string of Modernist landmarks, Eurostars Barcelona Design pays homage to the art and architecture of the era. Housed inside a refurbished late 19th century building, this boutique hotel showcases an elegant modern look in its interiors. Rooms feature an avant-garde aesthetic and high-tech trappings like free Wi-Fi. The outdoor Jacuzzi on the rooftop terrace is ideal for a dip under the open skies. The hotel also has a fitness center and a bar-cafeteria with a courtyard terrace.
Rooms

The size and configuration of the 65 rooms at Eurostars Barcelona Design varies. Some units come with a bathtub smack in the middle of the room--an unusual design touch. Others have a separate reading room or a shared space for the bathroom and the bedroom, separated by a fabric-covered glass door. While some units overlook Paseo de Gracia, others have views of the interior courtyard. A full spectrum of amenities including LCD satellite TV, ultra-comfortable beds, free Wi-Fi, mini-bar and a writing desk unite all the rooms and suites. The two suites come with shower or bathtub and splendid private terraces.

Property features

The avant-garde design by the Xavier Claramunt studio makes Eurostars Barcelona Design a prime destination for design and art hawks. The interiors showcase bold striking colors and unusual furnishings. The property occasionally hosts sculpture exhibits on its terraces, a nod to the overall artistic culture of the Eixample neighborhood. In addition to the rooftop terrace with outdoor Jacuzzi and fitness center, the hotel offers a range of services including 24-hour room service, laundry, concierge and car rental desk. The bar-cafeteria with a lounge overlooking Paseo de Gracia and a courtyard terrace in the back serves breakfast (fees apply) as well as tapas and drinks.

5 day break

The hotel is perfectly situated for the whole city, just a hundred yards from the Metro station. Also an easy stroll to the Ramblas and 2 of Gaudis buildings. This is also a safe area late at night. Stayed in a small basic room which was totally fine for 2 of us. A couple of minor things (hair dryer & tv remote control) were missing from the room on arrival but were immediately rectified without any fuss. Polite & helpful reception staff, all English speaking if your Spanish/Catalan is a little rusty. I didn't eat or even have breakfast at the hotel so cannot comment. I would stay here again.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

You now have to pay to enter the main part of Parc Guell and entrance is then time restricted. There is not a eat deal else to do in the area so try & buy in advance or buy your tickets at Lesseps station (although I prefer getting off at Vallcarca & using the escalators). I'd always recommend eating at La Fonda on Escudellers street & booking lunch at Els Quatre Gats. The set menus include wine, water, bread & coffee for just 20 euros.

Very nice hotel in a good spot

Hotel was very nice. While not what I would cal 5-star I didn't expect it at this price. Room was beautifully decorated but on the small side. Bathroom provided little privacy. Staff was nice enough but didn't stand out. Roof top hot tub they advertised was not working and they don't seem to intend to fix it. Felt like this was a bit deceptive.

A good location...awkward room

BCN Design looks amazing from the outside and the reception area is also promising. The location is perfect with it being in the heart of the city walking distance from Catalunya Square and La Rambla. However, the room itself was not amazing. It is neat enough with a great shower (although superior rooms should have a bath), but the layout is completely open-plan with a non-soundproof toilet and shower - the toilet and shower cubicles only have frosted doors! I had to send my other half to the roof terrace as I decided that, even after 6 years together, I couldn't bear him hearing me having a more substantial toilet visit!!! You can very easily hear others in the hallway too and we are sure they could hear us so the privacy factor was lacking. However, the hotel does have its own safe parking underground (25 Euros a day) which you pay at the end of your stay when you check out (we travelled by car so we didn't have to search for parking in the equivalent to London Town). As we know the hotel we may stay there again as the staff were lovely and the location is good, but on our walk round the city we did notice better hotels which were not boasting a 5* in possibly better locations.We only wish the en suite had a wall around it, the gym was a little more substantial and the Jacuzzi on the roof terrace was not covered (a point made by another reviewer).

Outstanding hotel- well located

Modern, clean and well located. We were delighted by this hotel. Just down the block from important Gaudi sights and across the street from the metro and bus Turistic. Ask [...] for dinner suggestions (3pm-11pm) He is wonderful. We had a great stay.
