For a cool stay in the Catalan capital, the location of this sleek sleep is very much on-point; just a short sashay from Plaça Catalunya and the world-famous Las Ramblas. You’ll also be within easy reach of Passeig de Gràcia – Barcelona’s biggest shopping street that’s home to splurge-worthy designer stores as well as more affordable Spanish high-street staples.
Each of the 98 guest rooms has a resolutely modish design theme; think gleaming wooden flooring, white walls, bright red colour accents, and funky fixtures and fittings. Matched with sleek-as-you-like bathrooms, you can look forward to comfortable beds dressed with crisp white linens, en-suite bathrooms, flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, and plenty of luxe extras.
Days can be spent going gaga for Gaudi in the Eixample neighbourhood, gorging on surrealist masterpieces at the Picasso Museum and Fundació Joan Miró, and exploring the winding streets of the Gothic Quarter. Post-sightseeing, there’s lots here to stick around for – most appealing of which is the buffet restaurant for delicious Mediterranean and international-style breakfasts, the stylish bar for anytime drinks and snacks, and the small outdoor pool that easily steals the show. Grupotel Gran Via 678 has been a recipient of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award for the past four years.

I stayed here for four nights whilst attending a conference in Barcelona. The position of the hotel is great but that is the only positive. The rooms are tiny and the beds are uncomfortable. They also have a very damp smell and need a major furniture update. However my already unhappy experience was compounded by an intrusion into my room one afternoon. I was in the bathroom when someone entered my room without any knock or warning. My room had already been cleaned so there was no explanation for this intrusion. I complained to the front desk but got no response. I would never stay here again.
The Hotel is located in an ideal position, a stone's throw from Piazza Catalogna, a stone's throw from the celebrated Ramblas, a stone's throw from the Maccba Museum, in an area well served by walk even on foot, I would say practically a perfect area for those in holiday.
Unfortunately, our experience is not entirely positive, apart from the magnificent location, nothing else. We booked as always from booking.com and on arrival they confined us to a second building built after the historic building, to reach it we had to take two elevators and follow the signs between the various corridors of the hotel, a very long journey. Finally arrived at our room, I tried to open it, but it opened halfway, because it banged against the bed, I had to go on the bed and move it to be able to enter the room with the luggage regularly. Obviously the room was really very small, it was oppressive and small, there was no room even for the luggage that we kept closed and put in the bathroom, absurd. There was a broken window that did not close, which looked inside, in a dead end of the hotel, we had a wall view and a view of the room in front, it was terrible. We asked for our window to be repaired, but after an inspection we were told that a piece was missing and that we had to buy it, and that of course the hardware was closed, so they would fix it on Monday when we left.
What can I say, the Hotel is also nice, but customers are not treated like numbers.
