Housed in a late 19th century corner building in the upscale Eixample district, Hotel Cram is a relatively new hotel with a cutting edge modern interior. The location, only a short walk from Passeig de Gràcia, is ideal. The rooms not too large, but are of a decent size and designed to maximise the use of space. Though one of the best features of the hotel is its roof top terrace, complete with a sun deck and swimming pool. Breakfast is served on the roof.
We went for this hotel as the one we were heading for was fully booked, it was booked through a design hotel website.
Just recently renovated this year. It was a great place to stay, we walked everywhere and the location was great.
The hotel was very cool, dark lighting, very friendly staff. We stayed in a larger room that was well laid out, a mirrored wall,
bathrobes, flat screen tv and sound proofing. Breakfast was included and was the same as any place you would get, I was particularly pleased with the nice mini fruit kebabs, sandwich mixto, chocolate muffins and coco pops. Cheeses & Meats, Bread, Juice everything! GREAT COFFEE!
I would recommend it, if you are going for a fun city break, good sightseeing & shopping base. There is a great cake shop next door,
and the bar staff provided coffee and a tray for us to enjoy these in our room. There is no room service but plenty of places nearby to eat and enjoy.
Unique Quality: A roof top pool, which is small but cool. Great views, sun loungers, tables & chairs
The hotel seemed to cater very well for disabled users, including help into the pool.
The rooms had beside the bed lighting to play with from Fiesta to Romantic.
It has a very well known resturant housed within GAIG - looked pricey!
We love Barcelona and have visited many times, we are visiting just for one day on a cruise at the end of the month and it is a Sunday..... so we can't visit our favourite restaurant (Gaig in the Cram Hotel)
We thought we would just pop to the beautiful market but that is shut too any ideas for food on a Sunday?
We were thinking of spending the day at Barceloneta will the restaurants along there be open on a Sunday? I have looked up Agua and that isn't open....
Check out Can Majo in Barceloneta - more details on my travel pages.
A true Barceloneta Experience to indulge yourselves...
(reservation is a "must")
Agua does open on Sundays (I rarely have been there if not for Sunday lunch!)
Where did you look at? its website says than on Saturdays and Sundays it's open from 13 to 16;40 at midday
Indeed, I do like more Bestial from the same owners (in the same area). Their special plate of Mediterranean starters is to die for!
However, I'd probably head to Barceloneta Rest as Frachal suggested above (can't speak about Can Majo as never ate there), as having lunch at the Barceloneta area on Sunday is one of the most typical Barcelonese activities I can think of.
No way the restaurants of the seafront will close on Sundays, the problem is all will be packed! (so need to reserve if you want to ensure eating in any particular place)
Why don't you go down to the harbour/beach areas. There are plenty of great places there! Sorry, I can't recall any specific places...
crazyman2, ALL the places suggested above are in the beach/harbor areas (Barceloneta/Port Olimpic) ;-)
i remember the square at the left side of the Cathedral, where they dance sardana on sundays has a great tapa's restaurant open where you have a wide range of deliciuos tapas for brunch....yummie!
Thank you so much for your helpful answers, I will be sure to get to lunch early!! If we can't decide where to book.
All the best
