Plunge yourself into the beating heart of buzzing Barcelona with a stay at NH Collection Barcelona Gran Hotel Calderón. This five-star hotel is located in the city’s Eixample district and was built on the site of the old Teatro Calderón. Completely renovated in 2016, the hotel’s eleven floors boast a bright, contemporary style, polished rooms, an elegant bar and a renowned Italian restaurant headed up by an award-winning chef. The crowning jewel, though, has to be the rooftop swimming pool and solarium, where you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the city.
The hotel’s incredible location puts you right where you want to be in the Catalan capital. A short walk away is the legendary Las Ramblas, where constant parades of people promenade past colorful flower stalls, lively bars and historic cafés. Meanwhile, shopaholics will be drawn to the nearby Passeig de Gràcia, the city’s most renowned shopping street. The Gothic Quarter, another one of the city’s most popular attractions, is just a 15-minute stroll from your front door.
Premium rooms feature neutral décor, wooden flooring and a chic, urban style. You’ll be able to enjoy 215 square feet of space, a sitting area and an en-suite bathroom with a rain shower. Other thoughtful touches include a Nespresso machine and a pillow menu.
Buffet breakfast is included (with great smoothies and fresh juices), while an elegant bar is on hand for expertly crafted cocktails. Fine dining is available at Don Giovanni, where award-winning chef Andrea Tumbarello has put together an exquisite à la carte menu of Italian favorites.
The hotel sits in a fantastic (yet surprisingly quiet) location on Rambla de Catalunya, not far from Plaça Catalunya, one of the city’s main transportation hubs. It’s a 10-minute walk to Las Ramblas, while shopping mecca Passeig de Gràcia is a mere block away. Iconic Gaudi buildings, such as Casa Batlló, La Pedrera and La Sagrada Familia, can also be reached on foot. Other must-sees include the Picasso museum, La Boqueria food market and the winding alleys of the Gothic Quarter.
How to Get There
We had a corner room consisting of a bedroom and a large living room, a large and a very clean bathroom with all new equipment, a beautiful terrace with a view. Beautiful. Very clean. Friendly and helpful. We had the utmost enjoyable time here, so that we even have twice (!) extended our stay here, and are looking forward to come back again. Thank you for an excellent work to the whole Team of the Hotel!
The best of the hotel was the location. Going out a few steps there were a lot of restaurants and walking two blocks we have Plaza Cataluña with commerce.
The hotel was very good but the rooms not to big.
The location is perfect for touring the city by metro and on foot. The staff are very helpful, answering all our questions and giving helpful advice. Breakfast had a large variety and very good service. We were sorry to leave the hotel afer a weeks stay.
