... history that "the year Onofre Bouvila disappeared from Barcelona marked the onset of a distinct decline in the city." (Mendoza 418) Before marking the decline of the city with his disappearance from Barcelona, however, Bouvila benefited from extreme power and wealth. Bouvila began his career largely by passing out Anarchist pamphlets at the 1888 World Fair and earning an extremely paltry salary while doing so. He wanted ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Granados 83 Barcelona
Very pleasant surprise
having purchased my room on line at a great price i was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel. the room was rather small but beautifully furnished, a small balcony and a nice bathroom. my room was quiet , very comfortable and well maintained . the lobby , bar and breakfast room are all very pleasant , as is the rooftop bar and pool area (the pool is tiny and kind of pointless). the staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is close to everything. breakfast at the hotel is very nice and for lunch/dinner i would highly recommend cerveceria majorca two blocks away, its fantastic.
i will definatley stay here again.
Got a kick out of the Granados 83!
We stayed for 4 nights in May 2006. Have been to a number of boutique hotels before, but this one was really cute! Sure, some of the design elements may border on impracticality, but overall we found it to be a great hotel. Very clean, nice staff. The rooftop pool provided the best cooldown to a long day of sightseeing. It's a little expensive, but worth it.
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights (16-19 May 2006). Although we initially liked the hotel with all the new and contemporary styling (some practical and some impractical), our stay was suffered when half of our cash was stolen from the room safe (which we had a personalized code). Apperantly, someone from the staff that had the master code of the room safe opened the safe and took $600 US from our cash that was stored inside the safe for safe keeping (of course), hoping that the money will not be missed. We reported the incident to the hotel manager who in turn reported it to the security personnel/manager who interviewed us and started an investigation. After 4 hours or so, we were told that no one from the staff with the master code has entered the room, therefore, that didn't go anywhere. At this point, we called the police and spent around 6-8 hours altogether with them (in two different occasions) reporting the incident. Of course, this didn't go anywhere either and turned out to be a waste of time (which I now wish I didn't spend my time like that).
We got an introductory offer on Granados following opening, we visit Barcelona quite often and have usually stayed at Hotel Balmes which is owned by the same group, one block away but one star less.
This hotel opened a couple of months ago and it is located in the nicer Eixample area of Barcelona. Overall, it was a good stay. The hotel design is very chic but some of the high-style design aspects were not very functional.
One of the best things about this hotel is the location - on a quiet treelined street in the Eixample district, within walking distance of all the main sites but not too close the the hustle and bustle of Las Ramblas.
We spent 3 nights at the Hotel Granados 83 in the last week of April and enjoyed every minute of it.We had 2 rooms-husband and myself in one room and 2 daughters in the other room.
We have just returned from a trip to Barcalona where we spent 3 nights at Hotel Granados 83.
A friend and I stayed at this hotel at the end of April for about a week. The hotel had only been open for about a month and a half, so I suspected that there might be glitches. And yes, there were. While the hotel is very stylish and design-oriented -- something that I truly can appreciate -- too much attention appears to be spent on how the hotel looks and functions and not nearly enough on good, old-fashioned customer-service from the moment guests walk in through the door until the moment they leave.
Quiet and modern
Off the hustle and bustle. Modern and Clean Interiors. Firendly Service. No views from Room.
