  • Casa Bonay

    Casa Bonay ★★★★

    The 4* of the moment

    Opened in May 2016 Casa Bonay is one of 4 stars most amusing of the moment in Barcelona. Admirably well located on Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, it is at only 10 minutes walkinf from Plaça de Catalunya, far from the tumult but not too much. One appreciates this more and more trendy district of Sant Joan. The hotel, with its bars, restaurants and its famous “Libertine” parties is by itself a place of attraction, very quickly adopted by locals. Do not hesitate.
