The room view and the variety of the breakfast First of all they've forgotten to park my car... someone mistakenly put the keys in the draw of the cars already parked. Second, the room-cleaners forgot to add more toillet paper and tissues. Apart from this, all was great.
I purchased this hotel as a gift for my fiance and her mother. They were very happy and had nothing but great things to say about the hotel, satff, and location.
It was amazing. Room had a great city view and alos free mini bar (Water, soft drink, beer) 1 of each per day. Room was clean and the bed was massive. ++++
We liked the room. The design was so different from other hotels. The breakfast was impressiv and I had a swim in the pool on the 23rd floor, which I really enjoyed. The beds were very comfortable. Easy access to the Metro. A very comfortable hotel. The only thing was how they were dressed in the reception a little bit boring.
Good, clean, comfortable room. Free drinks in mini-bar. Would have preferred coffee/tea in room to cold drinks. Dining room had no atmosphere and not much choice of menu, though breakfast was excellent.
The view of the room was great we had a great time in a nice hotel
the room was nicethe view was nice was good that the shopping mall was very close to the hotel. would been a real 4 stars hotel if you have someone take the luggage to the room and bring it down during check out, also there was always bad smell at night in the bathroom, dont know was only in my room or in other rooms too. also people on front desk some of them should put a smile on their face, they r very helpfull but should always be a smile.
almost everything I had no french TV chain (TV5 was not available)
Everything Not Applicable - everything perfect
Good scenery no teapot, coffee pot, or teakettle, it is very inconvenient for me.
The bed was very comfortable and there was someone on reception 24 hours a day. We were also able to leave our luggage after checking out until we were ready to leave Barcelona. The room was far too hot and the air con didn't work. The bathroom wasn't cleaned properly. There facilities advertised were unavailable. There was an infestation of silver fish in out room and bathroom. When asked to meet and discuss the problems with the maintenence man, he never showed up. We therefore lost an hour waiting for him.
Very good location near the bus station. Easy to walk to main locations. Quiet, comfortable and very good breakfast. Would have liked tea/coffee facilities in the room.
design, atmosphere, free mini-bar
The beds were comfortable and the bathroom had an excellent shower and hair dryer. The room had air con which you could control yourself and a free mini bar.The room and hotel were very clean. The hotel is situated in a very convenient area, only 30 mins walk to the centre and about the same to the Sagrada Familia. I would stay here again. The staff did not tell us any information about the hotel upon our arrival. ie, that we needed a code for the internet, or that we could buy drinks and although I knew that there was a gym and a pool (small) we were not told where we could find them. Tea/coffee making facilities in the room would be a good idea.
free water in the fridge
The hotel was very clean, comfortable and secure. It was also in a good location. No
Value for the money. Nice hotel I liked everything. Nice bathroom, good mattress, free water, pleasant staff. It is close to the Metro, train station and bus station. The Arco de Triunfo is just a few blocks away and a beautiful park is closed by
The cleanliness of the rooms. Dean on reception was particularly helpful and polite Breakfast was very disorganised - not enough tables, chairs, cutlery, crockery food etc for the number of guests. There wasn't a bar in the hotel despite the information on the website
new, clean, modern design, location nothing
Residential neighborhood - felt safe walking 11:00 pm. Just a few blocks from bus station and metro. Nice breakfast - you can ask for an omlet at no extra charge. There was a desk and free Wi-Fi. Bathroom was very nice. Staff spoke english and were very nice. Great restaurant about 4 blocks called "Peix d'Or" Fresh fish which you choose from large selection and then they cook it. Inexpensive, very comfortable. Room was small - difficult to store suitcases.
Friendly helpful reception staff, very comfortable bed, room layout would have been a real bonus to have tea/coffee making facilities in room
the room pool and sundeck to small
very well no
spacious, clean room, comfortable bed, nice decoration and view from the top rooms through the huge windows I think glassy bathroom is not a good idea at all.
The location. Near the metro and the tourist bus stop. Shopping mall 50 meters away. Noise from water dripping on window sill when it rains.
breakfast size of the room
large spacious room, great breakfast buffet, friendly wait staff. internet access: this was very poor. only 2 computers were available and the internet service was very slow. One the computers had broken keys on it. I hate lap top computer keyboard, you need to replace them with desktop monitors. later on in the night, only 1 computer was available, 1 had been taken away
breakfest annoyed hotel staff
Location is very good for shopping and transportation No room privacy due to the Hotel design
convenient for shoping bathroom without curtain
design of hotel the rooms were not clean enough ( we used same sheets for a few days) .carpets are smelling.
Quality hotel, friendly helpful staff. Location could have been better. But it was less expensive than ones nearer the main areas. Just meant taxi's by night, metro by day.
Overall stay was good. Air condinitioning is kept off deliberately (as answered by reception staff1) in night, that made us sweat a lot. Staff at reception gave stereotyped answers. Day after, same thing happened again. This irked us a lot! No tea of coffee maker in room!
Infrastructure is of a 3 stars hotel, location is not so safe
The design and style was very modern and sleek. Location was good - Fabulous shopping centre located just 10 min walk away. It was a bit removed from the main centre of Barcelona (just under a ten min taxi ride) so we ended up spending quite an amount on taxis over our 4 day stay - approx cost from hotel to city centre was €10 - €12
comfort , clean rooms, good brakefast',eautyful and comfortable bathroom distance to city
The hotel itself, design, architecture. Breakfast good. Close to the excellent new beach with very good services. Big shopping center 250m. Actual location in the middle of old industrial area causing pollution to the the pool area. Service quality variable. The hotel could not inform of relevant public transportation, discount tickets for family and it did not do anything to find out. Hotel is far from historical city center and metro line is closed. It was forbidden to take own drinks to the pool area, but there was no hotel service there either within our one week stay.
From the moment I arrived, the staff focused upon my needs, even reassuring me that, since I would be leaving early on the morning on my final day, they would arrange for a box breakfast...indeed, they did! My junior suite was delightful, with food and drink available 24 hours/day. The only thing I missed was wash-cloths for facial use. The hand towels and bath towels are 1st class; I'm unsure as to why they don't provide wash-cloths.
very nice, would go back.recommanding it to people already
The reception staff not so friendly, the bar staff however very frienly and actually made our one evening very enjoyable. Just location, the surrounding areas were not too favourable. But it was a close walk to beach.
Staff was nice, room had a nice modern look. Beds were hard, location was not convenient and was not informed that the metro lines would be under construction an unusable near the hotel, although staff clearly knew if would be occuring during my stay.
design of room location
Although we had our doubts on the location, the experience very quickly made clear this was no issue at all: metro, tram, taxis are so easy from this location to get. On top of that the hotel was very quiet and well equiped. The free wifi that was quite performant was an extra. The breakfast was ok, but not more than that.
The hotel staff is very nice and is dealing with the situation (see below). Inspiring futuristic and contemorary style of the furniture and high tech. The hoel was open two days before we arrived and it had a few glitches: hear drier not easily available, air conditioning can not be set properly, computer in the room including the lights resetting at night, no coffie machine nor any way to make coffie in the room, towels dramaticly large and heavy (use tinny "italian style" ones).
Everything. Rooms were mamzing, and we really liked the terrace cafe bar. None.
Very nice hotel and very good service. Very quiet, we slept good without any disturbance from other guestroom or outside.. It was easy to take tram or metro around the city. Tram right outside of the hotel, metro about two minutes to walk. If I go back to Barcelona some day, I probably choose this hotel again. Good breakfast, and when we where at the hotel, they had a offer of 5 EUR for breakfast, insted of 18 EUR as the website told us. So we had breakfast everyday at the hotel instead of going out to eat it. It was not alowed for children in the spa at the basement. Since there was no warming at the roof pool and the water there was could, our children could not take a swim, I understand that they don't want to have children in the spa, but I wished they had a warm roof pool or some other pool for children to use.
Very modern and very quiet neiborhood. It was very convienient to the metro and the tram but out away from the crowded city. You could see the ocean from our room and watch the sailboats. It was nice and friendly. I would recommend getting the breakfast with your room. It was an international type buffet with lots of variety and very good food. Lots of opportunities to have a different breakfast every morning for a least a week stay. We were there 5 days and never had the same breakfast twice.The price was good for what you got. Good sized room. No, nothing. We were pleasantly surprised and feel we made a good choice.
Good room,friendly staff
Very nice hotel. Just a few minutes from city centre by MTR. Inexpensive in low season.
Very nice room: clean, big, high-tech, comfortble bed. Very friendly staff, all can speak good English. Good location with sea view.
The design of the hotel and service. The morning breakfast is also really great.
Room comfort. It has everything we need. No.
the breakfast distance from downtown and unavailable help with transportation to downtown
Clean, helpful staff, good breakfast, quiet. Beds were not comfortable.
The room was clean, tidy, comfortable. The staff was pleasant and helpful. There were only few minor things which shouldn't discourage you to come and stay in this hotel. The first thing was this silly coffee machine at breakfast which didn't make nice coffee at all. If you like good tea bring your own bags :) The second was English speaking tv channels. If you don't want to watch euro news you will end up with ITV4 which, to be honest, if you are not used to it, will probably drive you mad. The last one was no kettle in the room. If you are tea addict you will probably suffer a bit :)
Plesure tips The pool area was closed for all guests at the hotel due to a wedding - that not acceptable !!
Lites goes on and off by itself, toilet flashes by itself. Asked them to fix but they didn't get fixed. It was noisy from music from the bar and outside pool till late at night.
being close to the beach and the resturants
Clean spacious rooms, clean linens. Quiet part of town. Close to the beach. Hot tub was broken for the entire five days we were there. Pool was freezing cold, and staff refused to switch on the heater... saying they never heat their pool in October for any reason. They offered no form of compensation. Be warned - if something is wrong with your stay, the staff here is NOT empowered to anything about it.
The accommodating attitude of the staff and the excelent breakfast The cleaning of the room was fine enough, but the lack of refill of shampoo and toiletpaper was dissapointing
well located, close to town centre and beach and motorway network. Parking available. Good Value and comfortable. Unable to operate air conditioning properly,
Very central - very comfortable hotel. Really friendly, helpful staff.
Nothing Central airconditioning, there was to warm in the room but opened windows brought too much street noise
Great location Lovely modern room Great breakfast, also had dinner there one night and really enoyed food.
Helpful,friendly staff even at 2.30am arrival! Air-con may need servicing
They ask us to pay the 3 nights on the day of arrival at 23PM ....
The location was great. It takes almost 5 minutes walk to the Rambla and 10 minutes to the beach. Staff were very helpful and hotel rooms were good although it was small but the good thing my room had a balcony.
decor, clean and modern handle on bathroom door broken, air conditioning not effective, no english channels on tv other than CNN
The room are well decorated, clean and soundproofed free mini bar abd free internet access is a plus
Pictures does not reflect reality. Old room and in bad shap, ugly windows. Very disappointing from inside the rooms
Location The room was dark and if you opened the window you saw only air conditioneds and the neighbours houses. At the lobby, by night, the man who works on the balcony hears the football in one of those pills radios, so loud, that it really bothers who wants to stay there and talk a little bit before going to bed. Also the absence of a bar is not a good thing.
central position room too small and dark
The hotel is very well situated for all the sightseeing & shopping in Barcelona. The staff were very friendly & helped to make the trip run smoothly.
The location of the hotel. The walls are very line and thus you can hear the people in the next room and in the corridors at all hours of th enight.
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 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.
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
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.
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
Staff were friendly & efficient.Excellent location.Breakfast buffet was extensive & varied.
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
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
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 roof bar was fantastic
Friendly staff, very helpful. Great locatioin. The breakfast was a little over-priced with a more limited selection to when I stayed a year ago.
The services & Hotel staff
Pleasant staff, nice deco at the lobby Rooms too small, unconfortable. Bad and expensive breakfast. Unatractive location. No wireless at the rooms, despite what was described at the site.
lack of leisure facilities
Situation. Helpful staff, except ordering of taxis, which may not be their fault Soulless restaurant, altho staff excellent
hall design bathroom
It was convenient for the tube. The room was dark, the beds were uncomfortable and seemed more like temporary beds than proper ones (including the twin beds - we had a third bed in the room), the hotel had no character or warmth and was certainly not up to the standard we would expect from a 4* hotel, having stayed in several recently. There were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room and when we asked for a cup of coffee at 4 pm on Saturday we were told the cafeteria was closed but he would make me one if I really wanted.
Shower was excellent
The convenience of being near to train station and therefore Barcelona without having to deal with the heavy traffic in Barcelona. Easy walk to station with interesting shopping on the way. Apart from not getting a bed for my 13 year old - all was good.
Its new. Plus the location. it is 15 mins walk to the train station to go to center of barcelona,. and also 10 mins walk to the beach, on the way , you can see many stores. I like the fact that its not in barcelona center. away from the noise. but still convenient for both car and walking. its 10 mins ride to center if use a car. none
Cheap for GSM tradeshow The Taxi to the show is 25 Euros one way. There is a train 15 minutes walk but never took it.
Design is excellent! Good location. close to beach and not far from Barcelona
The friendly staff, the cleanliness of rooms and the design. It was also very quite with no noise in the day or night. The food was really great as well. One of the best hotels and best value hotels we have stayed in in Spain. No everything was great.
No parking, air conditioning was not working, needed to change room.
Nice staff and nice design Breakfast far below the usual 4star level in Spain, no choice of fresh fruit. The shower was always overfloating to the room, very ennoying. Situation rather noisy next to high way.
Very polite hotel staff, free internet and classy room. Veery goooodaa ;)
Very nice and clean room. Friendly, english speaking staff. No disturbing noise at all was heard during our stay.
Clean and modern and very close to great shopping area. Great value for money.
Design of rooms and bed linen, reception and the bar, rich breakfast with well selected food. Beds shouldn't be separated - should be queen beds.
Nice brakfast romm and good choice for breakfast room was small and dark
Interia design No complimentary water ( a sign of a hotel chain that cares as much about the individual as they do their profit margin)
The hotel was close to two "Halal Restaurants" 5 Euro to reach them, one is called "Abou Khalil" C/Santalo, 88, Barcelona a Lebanese one owned by a Palestinian guy. and the other one is called "Al-Jaima" C/Valencia, 218,Barcelona owned by his brother. The internet was great as well. We arrived early and the receptionist helped us to put the luggage in the store. The room needs to be isolated well so we do not hear the wind when blowing. There was no Bidet at the bathroom, I would appreciate if they could add it.
The hotel is very clean, and modern in style. Most of the staff could speak English, and they were all helpful and friendly.
Centre location (10 minutes by foot from placa Catalynia), very friendly staff, nice breakfast Very strange design ))) especially for bathroom )))
The room Rocked! It was very luxurious for the money we paid. The hotel staff turned down the beds. The room was very clean. From our window you could see the Segrada Familia. I loved this hotel. It was my favorite within my 2 weeks in traveling in Europe. There was nothing that I did not like about this hotel. Great location.
I liked the room and its design... staff speaks real poor english even though they always tried their best...i appreciate that
The design is very fashion and modern.
close to the beach although we had non-smokers booked, only smokers were available; noisy rooms and A/C was not adjustable - very cold air blowing directly on the head; staff is unfriendly and unprofessional; wi-fi in the rooms is not for free
I didn't like that hotel ,next time I will go for another hotel for sure I didn't like staff. they wasn't polite ,friendly...and I didn't like room..
The Beach It was a littlle too far from the main city
The Hotel is near the beach.
The location was very nice, the hotel is clean The hair dryer was broken (physically), my card-key had to be replaced 2 times
We enjoyed the enviroment created by the staff and the quality of the services and the friendly nature, considering we did not speak Spanish The fact that we didn't speak Spanish so we could have had better conversation with the friendly staff.
view to sea was fabulous - even caught a picture perfect sunrise! refrigerator was faulty to the extent where it functioned primarily as a heater. as the temperatures were already warm (18-19C), the room was ~28C in the evening upon return. hotel staff were unable to fix or even unplug the damn thing... ocean side view marred by the noise of the freeway which was compounded by the "heating" problem indicated above. this meant that the window had to be opened periodically during the nite which was very loud.
The view, the comfort, size and cleanliness of the room No pool
Good location, near the sea and the city. Not good for a 4 stars hotel. Rooms are small, and the desk staff is not very helpful.
Location is perfect for us with a 2 yr old. No wifi in the room. Wifi only available in the lobby area. No A/C in the hotel during mt state due to approaching winter. Room facing east are very noisy and hot during the day.
Just about everything. The location was great. It was across the street from the beach. A short walk to the metro and mall made it convenient. The quiet neighborhood was a warm welcome after a long day of sightseeing in the city. Dinner was delicious.
This hotel is a true discovery. Friendly and courteous personnel (rather like most of Barcelona) provided me a sparkling clean room. Stylish and beautifully appointed. The bathroom was particularly beautiful. Little hard candies were always provided, just one of the little touches that make a difference. I will always return here on future visits to Barcelona. Three computers were provided, but i couldn't get into my Verizon webmail, no matter how often i tried. On the other hand, two of the three internet cafes i tried couldn't connect me either. The hotel is a little out of the way, but in defense, that meant it was a quiet neighborhood. This is a minor quibble.
A big room with very interesting black&white interior. Nice bathroom with a lot of amenities. It was also very nice to have a bathtub after a whole day of walking :) You have to wait for at least a minute for hot water to run, but it is the only bad point in the whole hotel.
central, big room. very noisy...
Very close to public transport and city centre, possibility to leave luggage in the hotel after check-out
It was very clean. The staff were very helpful and answered our multiple questions which enhanced our experience in Barcelona. Free wifi was appreciated. The breakfast was good.
Hotel is in a good location, basic features but a good base for a visit to the city.
Everything was excellent Nothing
Location, cleaneness and enjoyable design Room a little bit small
Very trendy hotel within walking distance of the main shopping belt, Passeig de Gracia. Also loved the design and decor of the hotel! The toilet can get very hot because of the spotlights, if you keep the lights on through the night.
It was central, clean, economic
Staff so friendly and informative.Thank you.
I liked the room very much. Good selection of English language tv channels which is rare in Spain. I also thought the room service was a nice touch. The pool area was quite nice as well. The bed could have been a tad more comfortable but next time I will book the superior room to see if it's better. Also the internet connection in the room was not always that strong. This hotel is near a metro stop but the location is not that central. This was ok for me but might not be ok for others. Be prepared to walk a bit and you'll be fine.
The location was perfect! Walking distance to all the major attractions. Close to La Ramblas and the beach. Hotel staff is helpful and speaks English, but make sure to check times of all the museums and attractions- they told us to check out something and when we got there it was closed. Room size was on the small side- but we had 4 big suitcases and 2 large bags and still had room to walk around. We had room at front of hotel with balcony overlooking the street. Nice to sit out and people watch- but also is loud at night with car traffic. Roof deck is wonderful!! The beds are really, really hard! We made our reservation to use the hot tub on the roof deck after a long day, had our bottle of Cava ready and got in and the water was not warm at all. We asked if we could turn up the temperature and they couldn't help us with it. Said maintenance would look at it the next day- disappointed since the next day we couldn't make a time to use it.
The roof top bar was excellent, lovely views and the barstaff in the roof top bar were extremely friendly. Also the rooms were clean and the showers were very powerful. Also hotel location was excellent. I thought the bedroom was a bit basic for a 4 star hotel.
Great location. Noisy street.
Perfect location and very kind staff. Room wasn’t big, but I didn’t spend much time in it:)
great location and nice staff room size is a bit small
It was very centrally located. The room was extremely small given the price. The weather was quite bad during our stay and due to the age of the building, we lost power for over an hour.
Clean and modern, good bathroom, nice food. Very small room, no tea / coffee facilities in room.
The location was fantastic, only a 5 min walk to la rambla and a 10 min walk to the beach. The rooftop bar was great also, beautiful view. The hotel staff were friendly and the value for money was the best that we found in Barcelona! Our room was tiny with no window! There was a window that viewed into the hotel but with no natural light so it was extremely dark. And the bed was very uncomfortable.
We stayed on a Superior room on the 5th floor: -perfect location -good internet access -friendly staff -comfortable room -the roof top jacuzzi temperature is not warm enough for winter time -breakfast is too expensive
Friendliness of the staff.
The location, the terrace, the staff. The room was small, with little storage space for clothes.
the extra-ordinary decoration we would prefer to be able to open our window -which faced the corridor-
The room was not too big, but modern in style, and the service good. The location of the hotel is suberb 326 EUR for one night is too expensive, and the breakfast was not even included.
We had a wonderful stay. Helpful and freindly staff , great room. Hard to beat this wonderful location. We will definately be back and will recommend this hotel to anyboby. Great value for money.
Location poor service...no toiletries...no response to 3 requests to reception.....bar closed at 12...unable to get a drink delivered to our room
Central location, cleanliness Not sure about the practicality of the room design, particularly the wash/shower/toilet layout and construction. The shower itself was excellent. Room doors noisy when closing automatically.
The rooms were very modern and comfortable. The receptionists and bell boys were extremely pleasant and helpful. The location was superb - close to the Metro, restaurants, shopping, sights. I made use of the mini-bar the first night. On the second night, the red wine was filled with tap water and recapped. The front desk did not seem surprised by this.
Nice hotel with excellent design. Perfect location in the city center. Kind personal. Clean rooms. Quiet atmosphere. Want to come back again. Shower,wc and sink were strange located. Breakfast could be better.
The modern design of the hotel in general, and its location. The strange design of its toilet, it wasn't comfortable at all.
Its a great hotel with a fantastic location. Check in was easy. As my flight left late inteh evening and the hotel was clearly not fully occupied, I requested a late check out. Current check out time is 12:00. However, when requesting the staff at reception if this woudl be possible, I found myself in a position where the cost has to be negotiated, rather than the staff trying to accommodate me. This is a real pity, as it left me with the impression taht the hotel was desperate to squeeze some extra cash from me. needless to say, i checked out at 12. Although I am a repeat guest at the Olivia Plaza hotel I will in all likelihood not return to this hotel as there are a number of excellent hotels of the same standard nearby. Hopefully they will be in a better position to accommodate their guests in such instances.
Hotel is a great value for what it offers. The rooms are clean, modern and comfortable. Rooms had smooth, clean wooden floors and are equipped with modern ammenities. The hotel is located in the Barri Gotic which is a central area to many shopping centers, reastaurants, and focal tourist points. The staff was extremely helpful. It is a short walk to Las Ramblas from the hotel. The hotel is practically next to the Catedral. (a must see). The hotel bed are big however they are not too comfortable. I experienced a lot of tossing and turning each night. Hotel also states that they offer sound proof rooms but the rooms are not completely sound proof. We were still able to hear the people in the room next to us laughing and talking, as well as the noises from the front street.
Perfect location, right in the centre of old town and a few steps from cathedral. Great price for lovely 4 star hotel. large rooms, very comfortable and modern, quiet street though right in centre, fantastic breakfast, lovely rooftop patio and pool. All around amazing hotel to stay at as vacationer or for business. nothing at all.
The hotel is located within walking distance (or a brief cab ride) of nearly everything you could desire in Barcelona. The room was comfortable and clean, and the staff is courteous and very helpful. Above all, the hotel is delightfully quiet--easy to to get a good night's rest.
Location was walking distance to many sites and central to Barcelona. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. Staff helpful. Checkin and out were a breeze. Everyone was professional and warm. No complaints.
Staff was very kind and helpful, Location was excellent
The hotel was located in the heart of the city; steps away from the Cathedral; easy walking distance to La Rambla, transportation, Palau Musica, Picasso museum. Staff was attentive, informative, and gave great recommendations for restaurants and how to get around. The hotel provided a free Sunday AM walking tour of the Gothic Quarter! a
Location, room decor, room size. Expensive breakfast :)
The hotel is very central to the historic quarter. The walking tour of the old city provided free of charge on the Sunday morning was excellent.
The location is very close to the centre of the city. The access to the hotel by car is not so easy (cannot be done by GPS navigation). The way to the parking garage is a little bit laborious. The breakfast was not included in the room rate. WLAN was not working, only LAN with the cable.
If you're looking for a central location as your jumping off point for Barcelona adventures, Barcelona Catedral is an excellent choice. Newly renovated, the hotel is very well appointed and has all the amenities you'd expect from an inner-city hotel. Roofdeck infinity pool is gorgeous and the setting is really fun, basically overlooking rooftops and balconies. Staff was very accommodating and went out of their way to provide service. Food in the restaurant (we only had breakfast) was good, local and fresh. Located right next to the Catedral. Not much to dislike, really. A bit hard to find if you don't know where it is. Also, pigeons tend to fly up to the pool and bathe in it a bit, but the staff was on top of cleaning the edges of the pool so it really isn't much of an issue. I had hoped the hotel bar / lounge area, which was really cool, would have a bit of nightlife, but it was dead most of the time.
excellent location, very central but quite.
Position and convenience is excellent The Bar area was a bit clinical and not conducive as a relaxation area
Location Smallest double room ever
The location was perfect: right at the start of La Ramblas, in the center of all transportation (Metro, taxis, buses, tourist buses), easy to walk to most places. The staff at H10 Catalunya was very friendly and helpful, our room was very clean and had a beautiful view of the plaza. The social hour offered free drinks and snacks in a beautiful room. This is the perfect hotel for any first time traveler to Barcelona, you will love it.
Location only Awful cleanliness of the room, very small rooms, very poor internet connection (right in the center of the city!!?), not value for the money we paid definitely, this is not 3-star at all!! maybe 1,5 and only because of location!
Excellent location right on Placa Catalunya. Free wifi and internet. Helpful staff. Room was a bit small.
The situation of the hotel in the centre of the city is excellent. The hotel has evidently very different rooms. On my visit in May 2010 I had a very nice big room with windows to Plaza Catalunya. On my visit in November 2010 I had a very small room with not very good beds.
Location Double room too small
Our room was very clean and we had a patio at the back with private place to sit outside. There was free internet and refreshments. also the location was fantactic..Breakfast was delicious and staff were so friendly. I cant wait to go back to Barcelona, and to stay there again. On checking out we were very impressed with the gentleman who looked after us. He was so very polite and also friendly. my bed was a little hard.
The excellent location in the city centre and next to underground and the bus-stop to the airport. the furniture in the room used-up and air-conditionn out of order...
Excellent location , very central , lovely hotel , very comfortable The cleaning staff were quite noisy first thing in the morning , could have been a little more discreet
Good value for money and very central. No
the position in the centre city. the room very small for 2 person,and the bed is moving just when you make any movement ,
The location was wonderful. Everything is just nearby. We took the metro only 3-4 times, otherwise most important sights were very near to us. We were with our 4 years old son, whenever he gets tired, we used to come back to our room, take a rest and go out again. no breakfast was served
Amazing customer service, perfect location, great shower, room was clean and bed was very comfortable. Room was very small but fine for one person, view was into middle of the building, would have preferred street side but this was the least expensive room available so I was OK with it. Location and staff were so great that it made up for these minor inconveniences:)
location was good the room we stayed in was absolutely tiny and the noise level coming from other guests rooms and bathrooms was very loud. Also on one of the mornings there was a very unpleasant smell in the bathrooms.
Nice rooms and comfertable bed.
The location and size of the room for the cost were exceptional. The only thing we didn't like was the rudeness of the staff at the front desk. After a 23 hour flight they wouldn't let us check in early even though there was no one staying in the room.
Convenience for where I needed to be, large bathroom and clean facilities, great breakfast. Would have been nice to have coffee/tea making facilities available in the room
the central location of the hotel the lack of a small bar to enjoy a drink and relax, and the absence of any facility or activities for children
The location was very convenient: close to the Metro, the beach, and Las Ramblas. The staff was friendly and responsive to our needs. We had only one problem during our stay. On our last night there was a lot of noise, and someone in the hotel was smoking and it filtered into our room from the air ducts.
The staff who was excellent and friendly, and the hotel location. The hotel rooms are nice and big and the beds are wide enough. The surrounding streets are extremely noisy at night.
Very good location about 4 blocks from foot of Las Ramblas. Nice clean room.
Location of the hotel and good connections to main spots of interest. When the room maid was changing the bed, with sheets she took away my night dress, and hotel staff did nothing to find it!
