Handy to Diagonal and the Sagrada Familia, this refurbished hotel in Gracia provides friendly accommodation within easy reach of Barcelona's best sights. Just north of the city center, Hotel Via Augusta is in a proudly Catalan neighborhood, perfectly placed to enjoy the Bohemian culture, cool cafes and lively squares of Gracia. It's just over a kilometer from the Placa Catalunya a nice walk down the Passeig de Gracia, and two metro stops from Las Ramblas from the nearby Gracia station. Renovated in 2007, accommodations here are contemporary and functional with modern bathrooms, LCD TVs, and free Wi-Fi throughout. There's an abundance of delis, boutiques, and restaurants in the near vicinity, all of which provide guests with a real sense of what Catalan community and society is all about.
