Granados 83 is a clean and thoroughly modern hotel just far enough from the madness of the main tourist areas to afford calm. Thus, it feels like Barcelona, not Disneyland. Fifteen minute walk down the tree lined streets and you are in the midst of Barri Gotic, or perhaps strolling to The Palau de la Música Catalana, or even magnificent la Boqueria.
Granados 83 is clean, quiet and feels more like a condo in the City than a hotel. A great roof top bar compliments a day of exploration - and Barcelona is for exploration.
The staff was exceptional, the optional buffet breakfast was convenient and delicious. We walked mostly, but a cab was never more than a few minutes away.
It is not a raucous place, not a party place - but neither is it a big, indifferent cement box. It feels alive, it is designed to do this, yet it is subdued.
Highly recommended. We're middle aged, felt at home and connected to the City.
The Derby hotels team behind the original Barcelona boutique hotel the Hotel Claris, opened this coup, Hotel Granados 83 in March 2006. Like falling into a pool of chocolate - warm wood panelling, rough red bricks, rusted metal and soft colour schemes soothe a traveller's soul. A former hospital, the hotel is situated in the heart of the shopping district near Passeo de Gracia. 77 rooms are spread over 7 floors, with an event room for 40 in the basement, a roof terrace for 70 people for a reception, and a first floor restaurant for 50 with its own courtyard.
COmpact and homely, this is a great hang out to stay in the heart of the city.
