We visited Barcelona with a group of 17 persons and stayed in Hotel Granvia. A really clean hotel with a friendly staff and an enormous air of the 19th century. Sagrada Familia is in a walking distance of 15 minutes and the same to reach the centre of the city. Really interesting and impressive days in this beautiful metropolis.

Very much enjoyed our stay in Hotel Granvia. First time in Barcelona and the city is magnificent. Great restaurants, atmosphere and architecture. Also had great day trip to Montserrat, wonderful.
Would really like to return sometime and the sooner the better!
Thank you for the welcome for my wife and myself.

My parents and I stayed for two nights in a roomy and comfortable, triple room at the Granvia Hotel between 16 – 19 Sept 2012. It is a lovely building and retains its old world charm. The breakfasts were varied and filling. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.
The hotel is located within 5 minutes of Plaza de Catalunya and metro stations and Passeig de Gracia for the buses to get to Park Guell. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wish that we had planned another couple of days in the lovely city of Barcelona. I will definitely be coming back to stay at the Granvia Hotel.

We stayed at the Hotel Granvia for 4 nights and were very happy with everything about the hotel. It appears to be a smaller hotel than the others that have been commented on. It is located near Plaza Catalunya and the metro at Paseo de Gracia, making it ideal for getting anywhere easily. The room was comfortable and clean. The best thing about the hotel was the friendliness of the staff, particularly Carlos. Because of construction next door, there was loud hammering all day, through no fault of the hotel. When we asked for a change of room, they were very accommodating, moving us to a room on the other side of the hotel where it was much quieter. There was no street noise in our room, even though the Gran Via was in front. We walked to Las Ramblas, the Palau de Musica de Catalana, and Gaudi’s Casa Mila. The metro was very easy to use and fast. The breakfast was very good, with just about everything you could ask for. We had the romatic package for 2 nights, including a bottle of wine and a nice dinner. The dinner was in Hotel 1898 on Las Ramblas, and it was delightful. I would recommend this hotel.

From june 6th to 9th, the Comèdia Cinema at Passeig de Gràcia, next to our historical Hotel Granvia, will be the venue for German Film Week, as the closing act for the German-Spain exchange event (being held on 4 and 5 June) which will bring a selection of five films from the 13th Madrid German Film Festival.
Among the films being screened we will be able to see Schlafkrankheit [Sleeping Sickness] by Ulrich Kölher, winner of the Silver Bear for Best Director at the Berlin Film Festival, and the latest film by Chris Kraus, Poll. Kraus will also be in attendance at the festival, holding a post-film discussion.
Making up the rest of the programme we have historical films, films on contemporary issues and films set both inside and outside of Germany. Organised by the Goethe Institut Barcelona, this activity is one of the German Week in Barcelona, starting on June 3rd, where Open Air Cinema and performances of dance, live music and light installations, discussions, and stands on central issues of our future, children’s theater and culinary products from Germany will be shown. For three days, Passeig de Lluis Companys in Barcelona, becomes a journey of stands, stages and tents.

A few days ago we told you that horror film director Darren Lynn Bousman was shooting his most recent film at Hotel Granvia in Barcelona. Best known for the acclaimed 3 Saw sequels (II, III & IV), he has also directed: Repo! The Genetic Opera and, most recently, the remake of Troma, The Mother’s Day (with Rebecca de Mornay) that will debut next April 1, 2011.
On rare occasions, the premiere of a film can match its title, it this a coincidence?, maybe not … But can this movie be considered a psychological thriller, a biblical apocalypse or a human disaster story? The film is about the “Phenomenon 11:11”.Apparently, there are people who claim that the numbers have appeared to them repeatedly throughout their life, which means there are angels or guardian spirits who are trying to communicate with them. Rounding out the issue, these people suggest that 11 is a number that has been associated with important historical events.
