Smell was disgusting all over the hotel
perfect view, nice room, balcony, swimmingpool,everything
Everything about the hotel.. The location was perfect for us not so far from La rambla and the city center -Plaza Catalunya- (about 2 min walk to reach the begining of La Rambla) and the tourist bus has a stop station just infront of the hotel door + their was a very close metro station L3 just at the begining of La Rambla. Nothing really. And I'm planing to stay their at my next visit.
The greeting upon arrival at the hotel was excellent. The staff were extremely friendly, and the room itself was very clean and comfortable, if small. The location is good. Access to the centre of town is via a very pleasant walk up Las Ramblas. It is also an equally pleasant walk along the promenade which is just next to the hotel. All the rooms have kettles. Upon plugging in said kettle I received quite an alarming electric shock followed by a loud bang, sparks and smoke coming from the plug socket and a consequent power cut in the room. Whilst I accept these things happen as electrical appliances get older and need replacing, what alarmed me was the total lack of concern on behalf of the staff when I notified them that of what had happened, and of the fact that I had actually been electrocuted in their hotel room. In fact their only response was to send up a handyman to replace the kettle and reset the fuse. I mentioned what had happened twice at the reception desk and quite frankly other than showing some slight surprise they couldn't seem to care less. Another disappointing factor was the view. Many of the reviews, and indeed the website boast a fantastic panoramic view of the Barcelona skyline, whilst in reality the view, even from the 8th floor, consists of a massive pylon (which sits directly in front of the hotel) and an average vantage point of the Barcelona skyline at best.
Breakfast; wheel-chair-accessibility in my 10 days at the hotel i was able to open without help the door to my room only one time.
lovely balcony with view of harbour. Huge bed. Very clean. Nice bar. 5min walk from Ramblas and 10mins to beach. I'm booking again for next year. Not the worlds greatest shower, but nice bath and bathroom. Oh, and don't binge on the mini bar...predictably extortionate.
Absolutely great Cold water in the bath monday morning, but it was advised in advance
We have stayed 4times at this hotel and everyone is very helpful we really enjoy staying there for comfort Location Hotel staff its wonderful
Nice, well furnished rooms. Good bathroom. Choose this hotel partly because it was announced to have a roof top pool. Now it turned out the pool is about 5x3 m and less than a meter deep. Disappointed about this!
The hotel is ideally situated at the bottom of the main road leading to all the shops and city centre. You can walk to most attractions and the night life is amazing. The bathroom in my room was amazing too with luxury bath and shower. The hotel staff are very friendly and will help you with anything. I would definitely stay there again. Spotlessly clean! Take some teabags as you only get 2 per night with powdered milk. Breakfast was extra for my stay and eating out is a lot cheater than the hotels food. But the hotels food is excellent as a last resort. Just minor issues, other than those I have no real complaints at all about the hotel as it was amazing.
The staff were helpful and very friendly
good location, just of La Ramba, well lit area.
The best of Aparthotel Gutenberg is without any doubt the location
The Location Nothing
The price, excellent location and very friendly and helpful reception staff. Rooms can be a bit noisy as no carpets in rooms or corridors.

Helpful staff, basic accommodation but well priced breakfast buffet
pleasant staff, location in the city center, good breakfast incl in price for room cleanliness of the room, esp. bathroom
Staff very helpful.Provided good breakfast..also had good internet service.Good location for sightseeing and shopping...convenient
Location was convenient Staff for the most part was either rude or uninformed
The location The cleaniness, breakfast too crowded
Don't pre-pay. They can never figure it out. They always try to charge you again when you are checking out. The first time when I didn't know they have this issue and my company pre-paid they even managed to convince me to pay again on check-out. I never got my money back either.
Location - close to cruise port, Port Vell, La Rambla. Super helpful staff. Generally comfortable. Shower panel too short allowing water to spill into bathroom. Need maintenance because of spills. Not enough storage for luggage.
The Hotel Grums was excellent value, the rooms are modern and a good size. Staff were helpful and pleasant. The hotel has a nice atmosphere.
Location fantastic. Staff really helpful and friendly
at night, the neighbourhood is not one where you would like to be walking alone. We did not have any problems, but we never went out alone at night. The hotel is nice, clean, friendly. The breakfast is great! I would definitely go back to this hotel.
Close to city center, excelent staff and breakfast! There are heavy trafic 24 houre in front of hotel making the rooms against the front useless,
Location was very good. We are a gay male couple and front desk asked if we'd prefer 2 beds in our room. When I suggested that 1 bed would be cosy enough, we got a certain disapproving "look" from the lady.
great location. not too noisy as it is out of the way of the busy La Ramblas, but convenient to get to when you want to enjoy it.
Close to some the city's sights.
Close to all the attractions.Good breakfast provided.Friendly,Helpfull staff.
The central position Nothing apart from no view from our room
The staff were exceptionally helpful which made our visit to Barcelona so much more enjoyable and I will be back one day to explore Barcelona!
Close to amenities and citys attractions. Very clean. Helpful staff Bit noisy at times.
Hotel staff are very nice and helpful! no refill of shower gel
New designed room , very clean . Staff speaks good english , very polite and helpfull . Main think- good location - you can get everywhere by foot . Close to La Rambla , but silent . It was no wardrobe and aircondition
The staff were excellent and very helpful with our requests and questions. I liked staying there. The hotel is new and just opened. Clean, beds comfortable, and we liked new design. Very close to the La Ramble, beach, shopping, and metro. I would stay again.Free WiFi The halls a little dark. The glass shower was covering half of the bathtub. We have to be careful not splash water on the floor.
Location Unfinished hotel, no parking, no restaurant. Our room didn't have a window at eye level and apparently even rooms with windows do not open. very claustrophobic and air conditioning didn't work. Imagine the corridors will look shabby very quickly as the black walls already looked scuffed. felt very pleased to leave our little box!!
good location, interesting design. more fresh air (open windows)
Good location, close to metro and walking distance from city centre. Small room viewing walls of surrounding buildings (like in a tunnel). Poor daylight - you can not know what the weather is like until you get out of the hotel.
the location is really good and it is rather cheap for Barcelona. The room was smelling clod smoke even if it was a non-smoking room.
Simple, good and excellent location none
Easy access to the centre of town and the metro
perfect location, helpful friendly staff, clean, basic but good breakfast available everyday nothing
The helpful staff. The professional hotel-like hostel. Much nicer than the usual hostel.
Staff was very helpfull and nice. 1) I had a room on the second floor and elevator was only till the 1st floor. I had to carry my heavy suitcase up to the 2nd floor until my rooms passing by additional intermediate stairs. Quite many stairs to reach the floor and the end of the corridor !! 2) rooms are very small not much space to circulate
close to port, what is we needed and wifi.
The location is very good and the facilities also. It seems like a hotel rather than a hostel. Its clean and well decorated. The metro station is 10 minutes far away by walking and if you have luggage its a bit difficult but you can take the bus which station is outside the hostel.
