Long Description:
The hotel is situated on the promenade of Las Ramblas, undoubtedly the most emblematic area of the city. It is superbly located right beside the Barrio Gótico and near many other tourist attractions. This hotel is one of the oldest in the city. It occupies a beautiful 19th century building that was previously used as convent in the 17th century. The building has been completely renovated and converted into a beautiful, impeccable hotel that preserves a large part of the building's original charm and décor through its period furniture. We have 142 fully equipped and recently renovated rooms where guests can choose between peaceful rooms that overlook the cloister of the old convent or rooms with a view of the Barcelona's Las Ramblas, a spectacular sight at any hour of the day.
