Hotel Actual

Carrer Roselló 238, Barcelona, Catalonia, 08008, Spain

Situated between Passeig de Gràcia and Pau Claris, this hotel offers good value with tasteful contemporary design and a central Eixample location. The small rooms–-made to feel a bit smaller by twin beds put together–-have a certain polished, masculine style with dark brown textiles, leather or wood headboards, unadorned furniture, and plenty of light. The owners are the Gimeno sisters of the nearby Gimeno design store, so it's no wonder the place is subtly sleek and hip. Some rooms have views of Gaudí's La Pedrera at the corner of the avenue. Without its own kitchen, the Actual still manages to serve a decent buffet breakfast at a bargain price.
