Set in an enviable location near Plaza Catalunya, and boasting a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, Indigo Barcelona is in the heart of the action, making it a perfect base for exploring the best of this dynamic city. Wander down Las Ramblas for some people-watching, browse the boutiques and department stores nearby, enjoy easy access to the Gothic Quarter, and walk to the famous Gaudi buildings of La Pedrera and Casa Batllo.
Behind the hotel’s classic modernist facade, the hotel houses a bold homage to the city’s most famous son with a huge Gaudi-inspired mural. White sofas, jewel-colored cushions and balustrade balconies continue the theme, while a cool and lively restaurant completes the offering. The icing on the cake? The small outdoor courtyard pool – an oasis of calm and the perfect end to a day of sightseeing.
Spacious rooms subtly reflect the city’s history with photos and artwork. Views from the Deluxe and Executive rooms are of either the pool or Gran Via de Les Cortes Catalanes; excellent soundproofing makes for a restful night’s sleep. Choose a Deluxe instead of Superior to have a private terrace facing the pool or balcony facing Gran Via, instead of a small balcony.
Expect Spanish cuisine with an innovative twist in the restaurant, all in creative and buzzing Gaudi-inspired surroundings. Settle down here for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as coffees, snacks and signature cocktails, with locals and guests alike.
The location could not be more central. Although there are numerous metro stops close by, you can walk to all the main attractions. Gaudi’s Casa Batllo and La Pedrera are less than a 10-minute walk away, as is Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter. Plaza Catalunya is only two blocks away, where you’ll also find Palau de La Musica Catalana. Sagrada Familia Cathedral is also within easy reach. Take the metro and visit Gaudi’s Parc Guell, or Montjuic’s cable car for spectacular views over the city.
How to Get There
Stayed here for three nights and everything was just perfect. We arrived early and could drop our bags off to allow us to explore. As it happens, we spent a couple of hours by the pool, chilling with a glass of wine or two ;-)
Rooms were lovely and large. We had an outdoor area to chill as well.
Breakfast was amazing, great choice and excellent coffee.
Location wise it's perfect, couple of minutes walk from Plaza Catalunya.
Without a doubt, highly recommended and can't wait to visit again.
Located at a walking distance from Plaza Catalunya, it is slightly away from the maddening crowds but central to all the place that you want to visit as a tourist in Barcelona. Breakfast spread is very generous and the staff is friendly and helpful. The reason for taking away a point is that although we checked in around 3pm, the hotel had already charged my card used for reservation for the first night, which is generally done in case of a no show.
All in all would recommend this property to fellow travellers
Stayed two nights at the hotel. Arrived early, but the staff was able to get us into our room around 2:00 PM, so that was good. Had a room on the 6th floor that looked into the courtyard and had a balcony for our use. Although the room seemed a bit small, it worked out well.
Biggest challenge, was the interior steps in the hallway, had to be careful to avoid tripping on them. Close to Plaza de Catalunya.
As IHG hotels go, this Indigo property is not up to the standard of other Indigo properties elsewhere e.g. London, Shanghai or Bangkok. The front entrance is dreary. The lobby and floors' hallways feel tired and the pool at the back of the hotel is not clean and is tiny compared with the misleading photos on the IHG website. This hotel needs a proper Indigo overhaul.
This is a first rate hotel with quirky rooms and decor that will really set you thinking. The staff were superb and I could not praise them highly enough, from directions to attractions, subway advice, safety advice, excellent service in the restaurant and bar and just generally nice people who cared about our trip and were interested in what we were doing.
The city is just an excellent place for wandering, every turn brought more ooohs and aaaahs and we will go back later in the year.
Stadium tour was marvellous for a footy fan like me, makes our national stadium (Hampden) look like a juniors ground.
Loved it all and looking forward to returning.
Only thing is that the hotel is not exactly in the Plaza Catalunya so do make sure the taxi driver knows that!
