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.
How to Get There
Decent Place, clean rooms, close to the rambla. Since the Hotel is on a Main street it is quite loud so bring ear plugs. Very friendly staff good breakfast .free Buffet from 13.00-18.00 welcome Drink. Bike rental around the corner
Great location! Was close to Aerobus, so easy to get to and from airport. Also close to Las Ramblas and hop on/hop off buses. Breakfast was great as well; large selection. We stayed in a family room and it was very small. The bathroom was fine, but the shower door made it impossible to keep the floor dry. Service was very good. They were able to check us in 2.5 hours early and brought up fresh towels and took garbage out right away when requested.
First impressions were good ,friendly welcome from the desk staff , we were allocated a great room with a large sun terrace one couple in our group had a very small room for the same room rate .
Rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was 10 € per head on our room rate but what was offered was very good for the price .
Location was very good just off La Rambla but far enough away to be quiet at night .
There is a bar serving a good selection of drinks and there are many bars and restaurants nearby so no need to wander too far at night .
Barcelona is a very large sprawling city and very busy even at this time of year this hotel is ideal as a place to stay for easy access to the city.
Grupotel Gravina has good location near metro and bus station it is near pales the Catalunya square and near shopping street. It has really good breakfast ,and has free cafe and tea and... for evening.it has nice staff.
Booked this hotel via Secret Escapes, 2 nights @ 66€ per night with breakfast and additional night with booking at € 90.
We stayed in one of the renovated rooms and for the price we paid with S.E it was acceptable but definitely not worth the 90€ paid for the extra night with booking.com.
Rooms aren't very clean and even if renovated they look like they need an extra hand of paint on the walls and some general fixing all over .
The big plus and the saving point for this hotel is the rich buffet breakfast , supervised by an Italian attendant who really took care of us during the 3 days of our stay !
Just the Espresso is not to mention , really bad taste !
I would never go back to this hotel , I prefer to pay more per night and get a decent 4 star in Barcelona , plenty to choose from !
