Located in the heart of luxury shopping area, one block from Gaudi's two residential masterpieces on Passeig de Gracia (Le Pedrera and Casa Battalo are a one minute walk away, one to the left, one to the right). There is a 24-hr 'pharmacy' w/in 1/2 a block, and the on-off tourist busses stop adjacent to Le Pedrera (red line). Every person who worked at this hotel is absolutely wonderful. (Happily held our luggage until a room was ready, gave us access to their beautiful breakfast/lounge ((we declined breakfast as we wanted to start touring a sap but it was truly a 4-star spread, like a Ritz Carlton or similar class.) ROOFTOP BAR IS AMAZING - try a Martin Miller Gin Tonic (one of 8 different gin tonics offered), 360 degree view with glass "roof" will stun you), tapas list was great. ROOM was modern, blow your mind luxurious. Our 20' balcony faced the street (rm 901 has floor to ceiling glass with a huge balcony and electric blinds... The wall above our king size bed was also glass, all the way to the ceiling creating a 6x8' glass wall 'headboard' which also created a wall of glass above the tub in the bath room, letting the spectacular view and light flood into the entire bathroom, with a electric shade if you wanted to lower it....). I seldom photograph a room, but I tried this time because it was so spectacular. Great robes, slippers, nespresso machine, huge glass shower. We absolutely loved it - would love to move in forever. I hated to have to leave and hope to go back for a longer stay. Note - this area is totally safe 24 hours a day and this would be a GREAT place for a woman travelling alone - this is a GREAT location. Entire staff, EVERY person, went out of their way to delight you.
Great staff from the bellman all the way to staff at the front desk, staff who cleans the room to the bar and staff at breakfast. no complaints everything at the hotel is excellent
Excellent breakfast selection of food and drink. Very comfortable bed and good quality bedlinen. Public areas very well furnished with a lot of interesting artwork and flower arrangements. Well located for metro, bus route, sightseeing. Rooms do not have a facility to make a hot drink for yourself
Excellent location. Friendly professional staff. Recently refurbished excellent rooms with good amenities inc Bulgari Restaurant on the lower level is a bit bland but good quality. Ok for breakfast but Go out for dinner
nothing in particular...thought reception and particularly breakfast dining areas were below par for a 5 star g.l hotel.....expected breakfast eggs etc to be cooked fresh not left on buffet...no a la carte offered see above............refused to give free internet in room despite info on booking conditions
The roof bar was fantastic
The location was great but the room was very small, very dirty, with a small windoow just facing another building.....The staff very rude... Didn't care about the guest, and the breakfast was for a 2 star hotel, not 5 star hotel
The staff at the hotel are fantastic - from the minute you step out of a cab to when you check out you feel pampered and cared for. The concierge was excellent in their food recommendations. The only drawback was that everything has a cost. The coffee in your room is considered mini-bar and is a charge.
The rooms were very nice and the location was great. Check-in did not go smoothly at all. Our rooms were not ready for several hours and we did not get into our rooms until speaking with the manager.
Staff were friendly & efficient.Excellent location.Breakfast buffet was extensive & varied.
The hotel is in an excellent location for travelers who need access to both the port and the airport. The surrounding streets offer dining for every taste.
The hotel was under renovation, lots of noise and disturbence during the day.
The facilities were beautiful and clean. The staff was friendly. The hotel was located in a central location. No face cloths, but i guess that is a European thing.
The hotel is in the centre of Barcelona,close to shops,historical sites and excellent transport systems.
The hotel was perfect. Rooms were of a high standard and felt fresh.The locationcould not have been better. 2 mins from the Ramblas but far enough away not to be bothered by the crowds. Many locations are easily walkable and there is a great Metro station right outside. On arrival despite pointing out to the person on reception that we had booked a junior suite we were still palmed of with a standard room and had to return to reception with all our luggage etc and wait until we were given our correct room. On leaving we were chased down the street by the doorman claiming that we had not handed in our key despite handing it to one of the people on reception and saying goodbye. Very embarrasing to be dragged back to the hotel in public and then told "it's ok it's sorted" Put a bit of a damper on the end of the holiday.
location excellent.helpful staff.very well looked after
Nice classical building. Comfortable rooms. Lousy free internet connection. No gym nor swimming pool.
Location Very uncomfortable beds. Overpriced room service options.
Central Location for Shopping
location and how pleasant the staff was
We had the junior suite which was excellant. It was nice to have some luxury Staff were very helpfull and polite and offered clear and well represented views about where to visit in the city.
Location was very good. Near to shops and other places such as the Ramblas. Staff were efficient and the general ambience of the hotel was good. Rooms were clean if a little "spartan" ! Our room was on the 9th floor and overlooked the roof top of an adjacent building. Unfortunately all the air conditioning units were positioned facing our only window so if you wanted the window open there was a horrible smell of food ....
The hotel is very well situated, right above the Plaza de Catalunia, away from the noise of the Rambla but still just a few minutes walk. The neighbourhood is very beautiful, good restaurants in the street as well as some amazing artwork in the street. The hotel room was very nice, even better than on the photos on the website. Beautifully decorated and the beds were comfortable. We had a great view from our windows and the view from the 11th floor, where the swimming pool is, was amazing. Though the hotel isn´t very cheap it was worth every penny! The air condition could have been a litle bit cooler.
Very nice location, nice hotel, good breakfast
ideal location, just one block away from playa de catalunya. Nice modern hotel
the location is very good the standard room little bit small , the room servise took my personal towel and i ask for it but they didn't return it back !!
the location of this hotel was excellent,the veiws from the roof top pool where breath taking.all staff where very helpfull. a great base to enjoy barcelona will book again when we return. the price for breakfast most guests we found eat out.
breakfast, room, location, cleaniness
Location, luxury room, service They increased the fare almost double due to a soccer game. Does not include breakfast
the rooms were clean and we loved swimmingin the pool
Location is superb. Walking distance to many of the tourist sights and shopping area. Easy access to metro and buses, and taxi stand is right at the corner. Spacious and Clean Room. Staffs are willing to help. Tapa bars nearby are also nice.
The location of the hotel is perfect to visit the city We were given a smoker´s room when our choice was non-smoker. It was disgusting because of the smell in the room and also to be sorrunded by ashtrays all over the place
Excellent location. Refurbished hotel with all amenities. Very clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay there again. Hotel restaurant could have better dinner menu. Very limited. Did not have breakfast there.
Perfect location to be close to the center and away of the noise. Great recepicist (from Argantine) to get his recoomendation for your paln in Barcelona. 50m from the metro station. No lobby. No Shampoo!!!. It was hard to find its building when the taxi deliver us from airport.
excellent location, very clean room, nice decoration and wonderful jacuzzi on the roof terrace... the staff was very friendly. the entrance...
the location was great the toilet and the washbasins were very small
The staff was spending and welcoming. The room was BIG for European standard. The bed was comfortable and shower was very very nice. The location could not have been better - We absolutely loved that !!! Bath towels were poor quality. A bit noisy if you are on 2nd floor facing street. There was a hint of mildew smell in our room
Location, close proximity to lots of sights and shopping/restaraunts. Room was incredibly tiny. Not good for more than one person. Definitely not a 5 star hotel as it was advertised.
Nice location. Room was quiet at night. Comfortable bed. Nice shower. Breakfast was nothing special. Find something down the street to eat. Sinks look good but are impractical. Gym is not open. Worn carpet.
The Hotel was very lovely and well decorated, clean and the staff was very accommodating. The hotel bar offered free champagne, water, tea and coffee which was a wonderful and unexpected surprise. The staff assisted us in room upgrades, places to eat and what to see around the city. Wifi was included in every room as well as personal AC that worked extremely well. The room also had black out curtains and while being very centrally located ( a few blocks from the Gaudi House and a 2 minute walk to La Rambla) was also very quiet. I would deffinitely stay here again. Great place for couples or young friends looking to have a good time while still relaxing and getting some rest! The bathroom of the rooms where small and not separate from the rest of the room, and the doors to the toilet and shower were opaque glass that was see through when wet. Other than that no complaints.
Location and quality of accommodation facilities
The location was perfect, and the staff was courteous and helpful. My room was very strangely designed (ironically). More importantly, the showers were not cleaned well - the glass walls were covered in a thick layer of soap scum - not pretty! Overall, it's listed as a 5 star hotel, and it's FAR from that. At best, it's a very good 3.5 star hotel, or a middle of the road 4 star.
This hotel was a great surprise in terms of quality, price, location, and service. It's located on a great street for shopping and dining, and only blocks away from the airport bus shuttle. John at reception was very kind and friendly, circled lots of things on the map of Barcelona for me to see, and recommended some restaurants. The free glass of sparkling wine was a nice touch as well. The room was fantastic, with a beautiful soaking tub and comfortable bed, and a balcony that opened up onto Passeig de Gracia. It should be noted that this room is great for solo travelers or anyone who doesn't mind an open concept room. The shower and toilet have frosted glass doors, but the tub is open. It may not be private enough for some people, but I thought it was fine as I was solo. The mini bar wasn't too expensive either, which can be hit or miss at many hotels, and had s great selection of snacks/beverages. Overall this was a fantastic stay in Barcelona and the hotel made it that much better. The only negative to the hotel is completely out of their hands, but there is a new retail store being constructed below, so after 8 or 9 am, it can be a little loud. It looks like it's just starting, so it may go on for quite some time. This wouldn't stop me from stating again by any means, but if you party all night and want to sleep in, it could be tough.
Nice hotel, good breakfast selection. They do not have a changing facility after check out (which is very useful if your flight is at a later time)
good value, helpful staff Air condtitioning weak on 9th floor
This hotel is very functional for touring Barcelona. The location could not have been better. Extremely good for shopping and very close to good places to eat. Also very close to public transport. The room was a good size. We did not have a double bed but the beds were comfortable, the bedding very clean. The bathroom with the double basins was spacious and clean. We ate breakfast once. The variety was good and fresh. We had a room at the back facing a very large courtyard so it was very quiet. We had been told that hotels in Barcelona facing the streets can be noisy at night. The lobby furniture could be revamped but apart from this , would recommend this hotel
Very good location. It's just a few blocks away from the centre. The room is modern and they even have a balcony. The hotel staff aren't helpful at all. very very very bad attitude.
Breakfast was excellent
A great location within steps to the main walking section of the city air conditioning was poor. We went with another couple and they had the same issue...the air conditioning did not work properly
The extortionate jump in room price on last night of our stay!!! Quality of breakfast was poor. Staff spoke very poor/no English.
Rooms are well equiped, beds comfortable,clean hotel in the middle of one of the best shopping areas in Barcelona, convenient to several metro lines. The desk staff was less friendly than in many other hotels but competent.
Friendly Staff, room size and hotel location all excellent
nothing the "romantic" room had two separate beds instead of a king-size one, one bathrobe per two, we had to ask for shampoo; they left one sweet per two; walls are so thin, we were hearing about all indigestion problems of our nextdoors. St.V.'s was absolutely ruined.
nice spacious rooms, view was ok, airco was fine, beds were good and the nespresso in the hallway very nice! And the location is perfect in the centre of the nicer part of Barcelona just 5 min walk from casa Batlo and the subway, only 10 min walk to plaza Catalunya.
Excellent location, just 5 minutes from the top of La Ramblas, fairly queit location but everything very accessible. The hotel had only just opened and the staff were very helpful. Free use of pc in room was a bonus. As with any hotel there are always teething troubles, we didn't have hot water for a couple of days but this was fixed and we were offered another room to shower in. Breakfast starts at 7.30 weekdays however when we arrived at 7.30 the restaurant was still in darkness and the staff weren't in. In fairness the receptionist gave us some pastries to take with us on our day trip. We booked a family room which was one good size room with bunk beds for the children, no privacy for the adults though.
Location, silence. Replace the bathroom door for more privacy.
Very central. Great location within walking distance to city centre. Quiet area for families. Staff helpful, room very nice and comfortable. Would highly recommend this hotel and would return as a couple also. Nothing!
I loved the look as soon as I walked in. Loved the laptop and high speed internet. Excellent placement of electrical outlets which is a surprisingly rare find.
no swimming pool
We found the location of the hotel to be excellent. The accomodation was was comfortable and quiet. The upgrade we had was very good aswe were given a jacuzzi in our room. The bathroom was spacious with a walkin shower. We found some of the interior decor in our room (211) to be little poor. The wood surround on the jacuzzi was coming off. The bathroom ceiling had holes in it. The balcony railing felt insecure.
The hotel was ok bathroom had mold on the ceiling! not nice for a 4 star hotel,
Location Bed, needed replacing. Housekeeping could have done with some better touches re bathroom items especially as hotel was 5 star rated.
Everything! it was great. it will be better when the remodeling is completed and there are two elevators. Breakfast was my favorite! Staff was excellent as well!
This hotel fell out of a glossy magazine; amazing room; ultra-modern decor; best shower of my life King sized bed was actually 2 x singles that wandered away from eachother in the night
Wondeful staff, very helpful. Made phenomenal restaurant recommendations and were all around very helpful. The hotel is a very nice hotel where they do a great job keeping clean and very nice. Location is great, walking distance to everything but in a more upscale area so out of the chaos of La Rambla.
Location Room decor
Location, hotel staff
Very helpfull staff,
The terrace. Room service food.
The location is very good, the staff are excellent,roof terrace is excellent, staff plesant and friendly, the food there is very good but limited, same menu every day. We ate lunch there each each day of our stay, and fish of the day for 5 days was always the same. The bed in our room was far too hard. By the end of our stay we both had aching backs.
The bed was like a rock, and pillows very poor for sleeping
Friendly, helpfu staffl and in a good location. Loved the roof top bar where the food we had was excellent We didn't dislike anything
Very helpful staff; rooftop bar excellent; excellent location; beds great Rooftop could use a little more seating with tables; maybe a few more waitstaff
Staff helpfulness and attitude room on busy road did not have enough noise insulation-consequently noisy
the roof bar small rooms - misleading 5 star status
This hotel is far from to be 5 star. The bed in the double room is very narrow and is about 1.40 m ! Thus, two adults sleeping on it risk to fall down at night. The other furniture of the room, which needs to be repaired would be more suitable for a 3 star hotel room. The personnel at the desk with poor english could explain to us how to connect to the hotel WiFi and offered us free bussiness room: two old time snail speed desktops with a queque beside the door. There is also a problem to take a cup of coffee till noon - the only suggestion is to take breakfast twice.
Location, comfort Pool and fitness centre was not available
super location!!!!!! good value for money. very pleased free mimi bar)
Fabulous hotel.Very clean and comfortable.Extra facilities like drinks and towels etc are excellent. whole party of 10 had a brilliant time. No complaints really only that breakfast seemed expensive.
Very tasty breakfast offering a good choice. Nice "business-type" hotel providing easy and comfortable stay at a high level of service. Fully complies with the standard expected from 4-star European hotel. Fitness facilities and swimming pool were in the state of repair.
staff at reception very arrogant and unhelpful. Gave me wrong information on two occasions.
Room, breakfast, rooftop, design Noise from visitors and cleaning staff in hallway.
Location, Comfort, close to La Rambla and all the excitement. Very clean and with all the amenities a traveller may require. Also, very quiet I would have preferred a better view from my room, also, internet access in the room woud have been very handy
The hotel was clean and comfortable. The location was convenient. It was a good base for a city break. The free mini-bar was a nice touch. It felt like a business hotel and had little character or charm- definitely not romantic.The reception staff were polite, but could not help with tourist-related questions (i.e. is there a ticket for all the Guadi sights?) The breakfast, whilst sufficient, could have had more variety.
Really nice and agreable decoration Very nice and agreeable hotel with a relaxing decoration. The location is also convenient, 2 min walking from Paseo de gracia and the closest metro stop.
Another couple were given the same room as us and actually had a key and came into the room lucky for us that we were there at the time. Reception lady sunday afternoon did not really apologise or think it was that big of a deal.jacuzzi hot water byt no pressure
Friendliness and helpfulness of staff. Free Internet. Comfortable room. We couldn't hear the TV.
Modern. Friendly staff. Comfortable rooms. Room service is too limited. The "restaurant" is not an option. Needs an upgrade
comfortable, quiet room. the staff were very helpful and friendly. the bar was a bit clinical, uncomfortable, however the staff were more than willing to serve us a drink in the very comfortable lobby
the location Very weak shower
classy, comfy, good service (receptionist was very nice telling us all the useful stuff when we arrived), the room was big, clean well equipped (descriptions are accurate) and had good running wifi access. We had a power outage on the first evening. As we came back from dinner 3 hours later, the hotel was still in the complete dark. Hopefully,our ultimate goal was to sleep immediately but I guess everyone staying at the hotel didn't have a great time.
Terrific location with easy access to trains and shopping. Room was clean and modern. The hotel staff was outstanding, the airlines had lost my bag and a young woman at front desk called the airlines for me to inquire on my bag - what service! I would definately stay here again. Nothing.
Perfect location, very efficient and friendly staff, excellent facilities
The room size, ckleanliness, guiet, ammenities. Polite reponsive multilingual staff. We were able to occupy our room early in the AM. On site restaurant available. Good value. No room heating on our first day (November 24). Staff not technically able to reprogram TV to an English language station.
very polite, accomodating bar shut when we returned in the evening
Bathroom toiletries not replenished daily.
