City of tapas, architecture and football

General Information

The Eixample is a popular area in Barcelona where one can find many tourist attractions, shopping areas and an extremely active nightlife, which makes it highly recommended for reserving a hotel room. Moreover, there are many hotels with good booking prices which are ideal for families, but there are many luxurious 5 Star Hotels as well. Another advantage for this area is that it is easily accessible by the means of public transportation, especially around Plaça de Catalunya. There are many metro lines that traverse the district and the Barcelona Aerobus that connects the city to Barcelona’s Airport also has a station here.

In the southern part of the district, within and around Plaça de Catalunya especially, accommodation is more expensive than in the northern side. One of the main factors for this is that the northern part of Eixample is a little bit further away from the centre, although the distance is not that big and the public transportation is quite well organized. Furthermore, there are many wide, inexpensive rooms which are ideal for families and large groups (for additional information – Hotels for Families in Barcelona and Kids and Families in Barcelona).

Tips and Recommendations

  • The southern part of Eixample is usually overcrowded during the summer, so it is recommended to book the hotel room in advance. In contrast, the northern part of the district will have free rooms during any month of the year.
  • Hotels in Eixample are recommended for those who want to get a low price accommodation close to Barcelona’s city centre. In the northern part of the quarter hotel rooms are as much as 20 to 30 percent cheaper than in the city centre (for additional information – Cheap Hotels in Barcelona).
  • In the northern part of Eixample there are many wide and cheap hotel rooms which are ideal for families and large groups (for additional information – Hotels for Families in Barcelona, Kids and Families in Eixample and Kids and Families in Barcelona).
  • Being a very romantic neighborhood, sunsets are particularly wonderful in Eixample it is warmly recommend for couples who spend their honeymoon or just a simple romantic holiday in Barcelona to book their hotel room here (for additional information – Romantic Hotels in Barcelona and Romantic Vacation in Barcelona).
  • For those who would like to spend their holiday in peace and silence we recommend not to reserve a hotel room anywhere near Passeig de Gracia because this street is the centre of the district’s nightlife. There are other less noisy places in the quarter which are ideal for tourists who are annoyed by parties and music events (for additional information – Visit Eixample at night).
  • Eixample can be a very good choice for gay and lesbian tourists because this quarter is an important centre for the gay and lesbian communities and there are many gay clubs and bars (for additional information – Gaixample or Eixample?).
  • Most of the car parks are situated in the northern part of the district (for additional information – Parking Near Eixample, Car Rental in Barcelona and Car Rental in Spain).
