Where to stay to visit the best spots in Barcelona on foot?

From its spectacular buildings to its parks and museums, Gaudi's city has plenty to surprise you! So rather than taking the bus, take the opportunity to visit the city on foot and take in the sights. Here are three well-located hotels from which you can reach the city's main points of interest in just a few minutes' walk.

Exe Laietana Palace, the hotel with a panoramic view

This hotel is decorated in a fairly traditional style, with spacious, cosy rooms. From the room's huge window, you can admire a panoramic view of Barcelona's ancient Roman wall. The most festive of us will appreciate its location just a stone's throw from the El Born district, where you can dance the samba into the night.

If you're passionate about art, and Cubism in particular, the hotel is less than 5 minutes from the Picasso Museum. The same goes for the Gothic Quarter, located in Barcelona's historic city centre. Take a break in front of its medieval architecture or in its maze of narrow streets, each more impressive than the last. And if the weather permits, make a diversion to the beach, just a few minutes' walk away.

Eurostar Monumental, the most vertiginous hotel

This four-star establishment offers single and double rooms with breakfast at an additional cost. Located in a very lively area, it is surrounded by cafés and restaurants, leaving you spoilt for choice if you fancy a tapas! And after a day walking the streets of the city, there's nothing better than taking advantage of the room's marble bath.

The Eurostar Monumental offers magnificent rooms with views of the Sagrada Familia, less than 400 metres from the cathedral. Its ideal location also allows you to visit Passeig de Gràcia, where you can contemplate the strange colourful facades and see Gaudi's Casa Milà and Casa Batllo.

Forget me not Barcelona, the unforgettable hotel

Forget me not Barcelona is a hotel with an atypical charm. The establishment was founded in what used to be an old Catalan house, now transformed into a hotel - unusual, isn't it? With its spacious rooms, tiled floors and vintage decor, it almost feels like home.

This hotel is in the Eixample district (which means "extension" in French), the city's newest and most modern district, and above all the favourite of travellers who have already visited Barcelona, not least because of its location, right in the heart of the city. What's more, if you fancy sampling some local delicacies at the boqueria market, La Rambla is just a 20-minute walk from the hotel. And how can you visit the cradle of flamenco without taking a look at the music museum, also just a short walk away?
