El Corte Ingles – shopping paradise near Hotel Ginebra

So far we have informed you about important tourist sites in the direct vicinity of Hotel Ginebra. Today we would like to make an exception and talk about something perhaps equally important, where to go shopping!

Our guests often present themselves at the hotel recepcion with the question “where can i buy……..??”

And our reply is 99.99% of the time “At El Corte Ingles!”

For those of you not familiar with the name, “El Corte Ingles” is the largest warehouse chain of Spain and Portugal and they sell pretty much everything, useful, from stamps to airplane parts.
Well actually they don’t sell either of those, but otherwise it is hard to imagine something you can not purchase here.

Since Plaza Catalunya, the square that Hotel Ginebra is situated on, is the most central location of Barcelona, there is not one, not two, but three different “El Corte Ingles” nearby.  Two directly on the square and one in “Puerta dell’Angel” , a famous shopping street and entrance into the old city, which runs directly off Plaza Catalunya.


The largest one offers a huge delicatessen supermarket on the lower level and a restaurtant on the 8th floor with magnificant views of Barcelona.

All in all another fantastic reason to choose Hotel GInebra for your stay in Barcelona! We wish you happy shopping!
