With its wide, tiled hallways, high ceilings, and breakfast room in the glass-roofed courtyard, the Oriente is a nicely renovated example of a former grand hotel. All the plumbing is new, and the furnishings are sparely modern and comfortable. The location is prime and the prices are right. Double windows on Les Rambles keep the noise down as well. Long a HUSA affiliate, the Oriente has joined the Atiram group, which is more oriented to Spanish travelers.
