A couple of subway stations from the center of the city. Well localized. Not much going on around the hotel, since it's a quiet neighbourhood, but you can easily access several points of interest, even by walking. Nice and clean rooms and bathrooms. Very expensive breakfast, which I believe to be the case in most hotels in Barcelona, I don't know why. It's much cheaper to have breakfast in a café. Room was kind of chilly and the heater didn't seem to do much.
The hotel was great - spacious, clean & friendly. It wasn't central - you had to get the tube.
very friendly and helpfull staff. good location n comfortable setting hotel didn,t provide smoking area. had to smoke on the street, well that was not good, may be ok for others but not for me. this is the only negative i do hold against the hotel. i am irish and we have had a non smoking policy in public places for the past 7 years and every where you go, there is a smoking facility 24/7
Great apartments just south of the city near the Marina. Only a couple of stops from the centre of town. Apartments were very modern and spacious. We only stayed for 4 days so we didn't have full use of the kitchen in the apartment (ie. oven and hotplates switched off, no crockery/cutlery). We just had a microwave and fridge. The staff did not hesitate when we asked if they could supply some crockery so we could make our own breakfast/supper etc. Previous reviewers suggested we do this. They simply took us down to the restaurant and loaded us up with everything we needed. Would have been great if they make the oven/hoteplates accessible for short stays.
friendly staff and very clean and tidy rooms. central location near to metro very basic facilities. no bar
the staff is very kind and show us about the room as well as the city around. the apartment is perfect. it is very comfortable and in a perfect location. it gave a very good impression for my first visit to amsterdam. i will come back in my next trip.
amazing location. very nice hotel. very sunny with lots of windows and a balcony as well. all in all it was an awesome experience no kitchen amenites....no moisturiser, no shampoo, conditioner etc.
Quiet area but easy access to city by metro. Helpful staff.
Spacious modern room in a relatively quiet area. Lack of crockery in the room, once provided taken away each day having to then be re requested.
They upgraded our room to a suite, and we appreciated this very much. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff very helpful. The breakfast was a buffet, with a good selection of foods, and generally of a good quality. The mattress was somewhat too hard, and the scrambled eggs prepared with too much fat, but these factors did not change our good impression of the hotel where we intend to stay next also.
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.
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.
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 very central to the historic quarter. The walking tour of the old city provided free of charge on the Sunday morning was excellent.
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.
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
Staff was very kind and helpful, Location was excellent
excellent location, very central but quite.
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.
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.
Location, room decor, room size. Expensive breakfast :)
Position and convenience is excellent The Bar area was a bit clinical and not conducive as a relaxation area
The hotel has one of the most amazing skylines I have ever seen.Its a 20 min taxiride to Barcelona, but its fantasticVERY romantic
My family loved everything about this hotel! From the moment we got out of the car and saw the view from the parking lot we knew we would enjoy this hotel. The staff was very professional and when they escorted us to our room we were absolutely amazed at the room we were given. This Hotel knows exactly how to spoil travelers from the size and comfort of the beds, free wi-fi in our room, the baby cot was amazing and the linens were perfect for our 8 month old son. The bathroom was very large with a magnificent shower and in another part was an incredible tub that my family loved using! My wife had a massage in the spa and loved every minute of it. My whole family enjoyed the large pool and jacuzzi in the morning. The pool is amazing!! My room was cold and I couldn't figure out how to operate the electronic heating control. The gentleman at the front desk said he would adjust it from the main computer but my room never warmed up. The rest of the hotel was at a perfect temperature so either I didn't know how to operate it or it was not working correctly?
Quality of room and excellant views No
Amazing! The view over Barcelona, the unique pool, and the friendly staff combine to make this hotel a one of a kind.
Amazing location and chilled out atmosphere, lack of crowds by the pool, great design.
The hotel staff were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel itself was very clean and comfortable, with fabulous views over the city. The hotel is a taxi ride away from the city centre, we didn't find this a problem as the hotel was happy to order the taxis and they are in abundance in Barcelona.
The rooms, the staff in general, the pool, the pool bar, the spa, the view! 1. Theme park located to rear of hotel. 2. Hotel restaurant unhelpful in table bookings. Gave up on trying to eat there.
excellent views and large rooms. staff was very accommodating at all times.
Beautiful view over all city. Extraordinary architecure. Elegant interior. Very spacy and comfortable rooms with very nice bath. Nice but small pool area. High pricing for whatever you deserve from drinks, meals, breakfast, wellness, spa, etc. Waiting time for taxi at least 15 min.
The spa and the massage is really excellent, the rooms are great, and the employees are really doing their best to make sure you enjoy your stay. it is a little bit windy because you are on top of the moutains
no swimming pool
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
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.
The hotel was ok bathroom had mold on the ceiling! not nice for a 4 star hotel,
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!
Location, silence. Replace the bathroom door for more privacy.
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.
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.
Location Bed, needed replacing. Housekeeping could have done with some better touches re bathroom items especially as hotel was 5 star rated.
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!
The location was fantastic.Everything you needed in the room was available like the iron and a kettle for free coffee & tea.Nice touch for the complimentary voucher for 2 cups of illy coffee in the reception. There was a nice lady on the reception (don't know her name ) which seemed the head department, was really too helpful & she spoke with a lovely smile all the time. It took me like an extra hour for checking in. I asked for a room with an ventilator in the bathroom, but was told it's possible only in suits !!
Location Size of the junior suite Not being informed that the public areas were all closed for renovation - not a big deal for us but I could see how others would be annoyed.
Location of the hotel is excellent Employees collaborators Recommend to live in Close to everything Nothing
quite efficient and the location overpriced
location the rooms and interior of the hotel were not as expected
Location on La Rambla. The surprising additional charge for my 8 year-old son.
The freindly atmosphere and good service limited dining facility choice
Junior Suite great view Sheets are not new, lobby is small, tolet broke down in 4 days - all that in a Junior Suite. Standard room very small.
The very comfortable and beautiful foyer. The decor in bedrooms was too modern. i.e. bed too big causing little space, bath too high and deep with no hand-rail to haul oneself out! Not many shelves in bathroom or in bedroom itself. No hooks for towels/clothes to hang in bathroom. Could easily hear traffic and TV in next room but understand that sound-proofing is in progress.
the location of this hotel is the best in Barcelona.
Very attractive throughout and huge room
quietness, open wiew, close to the sea the area nothing special (mainly under construction)
Very clean efficient modern hotel with helpful staff at reception. slightly out of the city centre but three bus routes and metro easily accessable
staff was very accomodating no coffee/tea maker
location, facilities, room, staff.
nice room and bathroom no coffee in hotel room
The room was very comfortable and modern. Also, the cleaning services were very good and the approach by the staff was friendly. The room was smelling smoke (obviously it was for smokers?) but we should have known that it was such.
The location is perfect, the hotel is good. I would stay there again.
district,near a big center,subway. a lazy personal.
The hotel was really close to the subway, nice decorated and very welcoming. Breakfast, tv and internet service were expensive. Although the subway station was really close to the hotel, the city centre via metro was 30 minutes away.
The location of the hotel was excellent. Close to the beach but very near to the centre with a Metro stop just around the corner.
central location, very nice lobby Tiny room on a courtyard with no natural light, housekeeping extremly noisy, bed broken, cockroaches in the room, staff unfriendly speaking very basic english, internet wifi very slow. Very bad value for money... Chambre minuscule donnant sur une cour sans lumiere naturelle, tres tres bruyant, lit casse, cafard dans la chambre, personel parlant tres peu anglais et peu aimable, internet tres lent. En bref tres mauvais rapport qualite prix...
The staff was really helpful. The room was large and clean. The bathroom was large and clean. The air conditioner didn't go on cool enough.
The Hotel could not have been placed better for accessibility to all of the activities and services in and around Barcelona
The location The breakfast was too expensive.
Excellent breakfast and prime location
that was my first time in barcelona, i was amazed by the location, you can say it is inside the action. the room size and cleanliness was ok to me and my wife. the room isolation is bad so that you will hear all the moves from the surrounding rooms specially in the morning when you the housekeeping will start cleaning up the room and that was not a great deal to beacause most of the day i was outside in the city.
The helpfulness of the Reception Desk staff. Room quality very poor. Changed after 1 night. 2nd room, 410, better but well below 4 star rating claimed by hotel. Why no coffee facities in roms?
The room was small but had all the comfort. The option to have breakfast was very convenient, especially the price/quality was very good. The location of the hotel was excellent.
Very close to everything, great value for the rooms, internet access and printing, very clean, Highly reccommend this hotel
Staff was helpful. This hotel is over priced based on the quality of the hotel.
wide range of excellent breakfast.courteous reception staff clean room and throughout,secure ,modern facilities.enjoyed our stay.however slightly off city.plus point close to seafront, could have done with few more days but expensive for out of town hotel
The hotel was very clean The pool was very small and was out of action. I found the hotel too clinical for my taste.
The hotel was modern and new, with very spacious and clean rooms including bathrooms. The location was excellent, 5 minutes from beach and right beside La Rambla del PobleNou where there were many restaurants and cafes, and 10 minutes from llacuna metro station. Staff were pleasant. Also we had two rooms located opposite each other at the end of the corridor, for ourselves and two children, these were very cleverly made to be connecting rooms by being able to partition off the end of the corridor - this was a very functional and useful feature particularly when one has children. Breakfast was not included in price and was expensive, but the many cafes on La Rambla PobleNou provided a good and cheaper alternative. Small but annoying point regarding the wheels on the beds, if one was reading in a sitting position with back against the wall the bed would slowly move away from the wall.
Lobby is well designed. Breakfast had limited offer for the price. Rooms are a bit dark.
nice big and very clean room,ok breakfast,ok location 5-10 min walk from metro station late check-in around 14:45, front office ladies very unpleasant and rude,never hear 'welcome'' ,never explained to us where are the main areas of the hotel or what time is the breakfast
The hotel was very modern. The services were very nice. The water in the swimming pool was very cold. We couldn't use it at all.
Ease of access by Metro to most locations, room quite spacious, breakfast various and plentifull. In walking range to sea front, beach. Use of lift based on the same card to access your room, Internet in room not available, TV channels=waste of time. Front desk personnel can do with a bit more effort towards guest friendly attitude. At the moment, and probably for a few more months there's a construction site on the streets in vicinity, although not very noisy but confusing for taxi drivers not familiar with this neighbourhood.
Although the Confortel Barcelona is not in the city center, it is well located. It is 5 minutes walk to the subway, which is only 3 to 5 stations to the city center depending where you want to go. The service was very good. The airline had lost my luggage and the hotel staff took care of calling the airline and tracking my luggage. The hotel just opened in 2008 and is very modern.
Close to the beach. very good size for the rooms, clean, good standard. the personel at reception should talk a bit more english, nevertheless, they are very friendly and helpful.
Very new and modern. Rooms clean and spacious. Free wifi and free water was a nice touch.
The room was beautiful and the staff helpful and friendly. The location was central and all sorts of transportation are within walking distance. We were lucky to get an upgrade to a room at the front of the hotel which have beautiful stain glass design balconies. We stayed when it was a little cooler in the evenings. The bathroom design is open and therefore when you finish showering you get cold a little quicker than you would in a closed off shower area. However this is for such a short duration it should not deter you from this great hotel. I would without a doubt love to come back here!
Location is best. Hotel is pretty upscale. Aesthetic. Pleasing to the eye. My credit card was charged before i checked in. Made the resrvation in euros. Was charged in dollars at a rate of 5% higher than what I would have gotten on my credit card plus commission.Was asked to sign a cr card slip that said I was offered a choice of currencies chose dollars and my choice was final.
Great Location, Staff Very Well Informed and Helpful. Great Place to stay, however you can get better and more upmarket accommodation at the same rate around the same area (e.g.Pulitzer, Olivia Plaza and Raphael Casanova). Axel has a more intimate atmosphere though. Cheap Toiletries. Little noisy - Light wooden doors not sealed and halls not carpeted - can be disturbing when people come back from a night out ... you can hear all conversations and the elevator bell in your room.
I liked the location and modern style of the hotel. It is in easy walking reach of the centre of town and the roof terrace with its swimming pool gives excellent views of Barcelona The wireless internet connection in my room was non existent which was very frustrating and the two computer in the reception area always had a several people waiting to use them
Good location in the middle of the eclectic pulse of Barcelona, a matter-of-fact, most of city's buzz is right in the hotel lobby bar. Design trying to hard, instead could use a good hard cleaning.
AIt's a gay hotel but 'hetero friendly' me and my wife stayed with a group of friends and didn't feel anything strange. Friendly staff, great location, nice rooms and good value for money. One of the reasons to chose it was the spa, but it cant be called a spa. 1 Sauna, 1 steam bath and teh pool and jakuzzi were not functional, some dirty stagnant water in the pool and we didn't use the spa after first trial. Also the minibar was nnot filled regularly and the room was not cleaned properly.
good location, nice staff a little too expensive for a *** hotel; no mini fridge in the room
Nicely and newly renovated rooms. Very modern and well-appointed. Received a larger room than expected. Lack of availability of house-keeping after 8pm and lack of support by hotel-staff in accommodating basic house-keeping requests (no pillowcases on bed and nobody available to address issue).
The kindness of the staff and the central location of Hotel Alex
The room was lovely, very comfortable, Nice touches such as a complimentary free gillette razor, lovely pool, sauna, ideal for gay area, full of hot men Breakfast was over priced for what it was and some stuff had oh so much attitude!
Lovely modern hotel with great service no
Staff helpful, good location, breakfast was good No complaints here!
The roof-top swimming-pool...... No.
Clean room, facility. Kind, flexible staff. A little far away from city center.
Good location, food,services You should have a person who can halp in different questions like a concierge.
The location was perfect. Walking distance to Ramblas, excellent restaurants and shopping. The beds and pillows were exceptionally comfortable and we loved the subdued lighting in the room. The staff spoke English, were friendly yet professional. The plentiful buffet breakfast was included in the price. We would definitely stay here again. Taxis are available right outside the hotel. Perfect when you are checking out. Could not fault this hotel.
location was excellent
The hotel was very easy-access to the old part of the city, the museums, the shopping areas, the Métro. I travelled with my two children (aged 12 & 15). I was surprised that no rooms for 3 exist. The buffet breakfast was disappointing (the food didn't taste as fresh as it looked). Strong taste of fridge.
The room was spacious, large double bed, nice bathroom. The breakfast were excellent, good choice of healthy products, and stuff was polite, service was quick during the breakfast.The location of the hotel is great - 5 min til Catalunia square, from where it's just walking distance till most sightseeings. We never took a taxi while staying. We can really hear when someone was in the bathroom in the neighbor room,it did bother a little early in the morning.Bad experience we had when we were leaving.It was early in the morning,we came to the reception to pay and were not able to pay with a card.It wasn't our problem or problem with our bank.The money was on the account,and we even entered the internet bank and showed it to the person on the reception.But he just kept staying in front of us doing nothing-just waiting.The saddest thing was,that he even hadn't tried to offer any solution to this problem, though he knew we had a plane in 2 hours.So we had to come up with something ourselves.My husband went to cash machine and we paid with cash.We lost some money on the bank interest
The price, excellent location and very friendly and helpful reception staff. Rooms can be a bit noisy as no carpets in rooms or corridors.
pleasant staff, location in the city center, good breakfast incl in price for room cleanliness of the room, esp. bathroom
The location The cleaniness, breakfast too crowded
The best of Aparthotel Gutenberg is without any doubt the location
Good location,nice staff,clean&well equipped room,
Helpful staff, basic accommodation but well priced breakfast buffet
The Location Nothing
good location, just of La Ramba, well lit area.
Staff very helpful.Provided good breakfast..also had good internet service.Good location for sightseeing and shopping...convenient
The location to Sants station where we arrived after flying to Barcelona. Good location for the Metro too. Bit of a walk to The Ramblas and city centre if not using public transport. Would have liked tea and coffee facilities in the room.
Managed to get a room on the 16th floor, so the views were magnificent, but you have to make sure you are on the right side of the hotel - not facing the train station. Breakfast was excellent, catering for all tastes and nationalities, while the spa facilities were very enjoyable.
Excellent location, Extremely nice hotel staff, Excellent rooms with superior views of the city and luxury spa aswell. Probably one of the best hotels we've stayed in!!!!!! There was nothing we didnt like. Excellent hotel and will be recommending it to friends and familly
The hotel had organized two adjacent and very nice rooms for us with a lovely view of Barcelona. The hotel is located within walking distance of the university and Camp Nou and only a short train ride from the old town. would have been nice with a street side coffe shop for the afternoon as roof top lounge had ltd service.
The bathroom was amazing and we had an executive room for the same price as a standard double We had two single beds and we had to keep putting them together as every morning the cleaner would separate them, also we didn't have an iron and the drinks in the fridge weren't chilled.
front desk staff and housekeeping staff
An all around great hotel . As soon as you get there, will see that it is a nice building from the outside... probably the tallest hotel in that area which allows you to have good views when you go to the top floor. I was greeted by the friendly and professional staff, that checked us in quickly. The hotel is located conveniently by the metro which was great to get anywhere in Barcelona. The staff was helpful and answered any questions we had. They assisted us on how to take the metro with the most simple route possible. The wi fi was solid too, great connection and quick. I would definitely return next time!
The staff including the daily cleaning services. The quietness in the room especially at night even though the hotel is in a busy place. The design of the bathroom. The way the lights work in the room which can be adjusted if one person is sleeping and the other is not. Only 15 minutes of computer time at the business center Laundry services are ridiculously expensive. Self - operated washing machines and dryers will enhance your reputation even more.
The staff always talked to us with smile, kindly and helpful. We were honeymoon couple and it was so lovely they arranged a bottle of sparkling wine as surprise. We had breakfast at the restaurant on the top floor, it was so nice view with sun shine. Everything was nice. We will stay there next time. We sent e-mail to ask some questions before arriving but their replying was very late.
Hotel staffs are very helpfull and friendly
large room cleanliness of bathroom, mold in shower
Right in front of the Barcelona Sants station. Spacious room. Thin wall. A little far from the city center. Since it's in the commercial area, it's rather quiet during weekend. If you pay the money because of the view of Barcelona's night life, you may be disappointed.
My sister and nephew stayed here in this very comfortable boutique hotel. Very comfortable. Excellent staff. Great rooftop bar / very small pool with beautiful views of the Gothic Quarter and further. There was nothing not to like.
Location! Boutique hotel category. Very pleasant service
Ease of access to city transport facilities and reasonably quiet No tea or coffee making facilities in the rooms
nice bathroom small room, poor light, staff overwhelmed and not willing to help (a friend of mine called the hotel to talk to me without knowing my room number, he was asked to call back later, because the man at the reception had too much work to do!), definitely a bad value for a 4 stars hotel!
very close to the Barcelo Sants train station too small room
Excellent location, few metro stations from the very heart of the city.
Efficient booking in system. Lighting very subdued
very near from barcelona sants. no.its very comfort
I was positively impressed by the staff at this hotel and how welcoming and warm they are. The hotel is perfect for the price we paid and it has a pretty good location. Although not central, it is very close to Sants Estacio which connects you to all the lines and to the center in a matter of 15 minutes. The neighbourhood is safe and the facilities such as the lounge, the computer area and the lobby are very nice. The restaurant and their offerings are not great. There were some hidden phone fees - we were almost sure that local calls would be free as they are everywhere in the world but we were charged for them although there is no mention of charges for these calls anywhere in the room.
Information gievn by staff about barcelona Had to wait for an hour to check in. Bad a ccess to car pak. Had to wait a long time again to check out because of difficulties with their system, they could not provide me a bill, which meant we could not paid by our preffered method.
pleasent and comfortable clean/ respectable/ I needed computer with power point to work on a presentation and it was not avelable
I like big bathroom and that metro station and supermarket are very close I did not like old and dirty carpet in our room. This is not about cleaning-staff cleaning is very good, this is about years during which is this carpet using. I would prefer wood or keramic floor, it is more hygienic.
Very good service and friendly staff, good car parking facility. Very clean hotel, good breakfast selection also, could do with a bit better lighting in the rooms and the beds were a little hard
