The room was comfortable, clean and not what I imagined having read previous reviews, the staff on reception were very helpful and the location was perfect. The residents bar did not appear to be staffed at any point during our stay and the service during breakfast was less than helpful, however these are minor points and would not stop me recommending the hotel.
the location and the free wi-fi computers in the rooms were super.
Modern, relaxed hotel, easy access to the Ramblas and other tourist attractions.
The location of the hotel was second to none. There were signs for a Bar but couldn't find one.
Proximity to main sightseeing places. Ability to enjoy walk around and along La Ramblas. Close to grocery bazaar (good option for delicious low-cost dinner: selection of cheese + several slices of prosciutto + freshly backed bread in nearby bakery + bottle of good table wine). Shopping lover will appreciate boutiques along La Ramblas and L'Corte Ingles Department Store across from Catalunya Sq. Offered breakfast was not bad (quality and value). Laptops in rooms and free internet access. Proximity to LaRamblas has negative side: too noisy late into night. Rooms are bit small for family with 2 kids. Beds have metal cases and make horrible noise when anyone turns around at night. In the bathroom we had just a shower with no proper tub; thus when taking shower water would be all around the floor. Bathrooms lack hooks, thus one ends up leaving all the change clother on the toilet seat.
Garden, location rooms and cafeteria are not clean enogh
The location was ideal for access to the metro (within 50m), restaurants, bars and tourists sites. None, everything as expected.
We liked the convience of the location and the style of the hotel. We had two single beds instead of a double.Corridors were a bit too dark.
Very cclean room No kettle in room. No hot water for shower on the last day.
The location was fantastic.
the location oh hotel and its staff on my opinion design of the hotel is too dark
Central location The front rooms are very noisy because of intensive traffic and poor isolation. Limited choice at breakfast buffet.
clean, attractive, roomy room, everything worked
The room was comfortable and restful
The location and the cleanliness of the hotel
Close to everything.
The close proximity to the city centre and the amazing view from the rooftop deck.
Location Many things
Very much, is very good located If we would come by car, no posibility to parc in the hotel
The view on top at the pool is magnificent. Central location, very good reception who know the way in Barcelona, the bars, the restaurants, where to go, how to go ... The pool was not heated, so too cold to swim.
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.
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.
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
excellent location, very central but quite.
Staff was very kind and helpful, Location was excellent
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.
Location, room decor, room size. Expensive breakfast :)
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.
Position and convenience is excellent The Bar area was a bit clinical and not conducive as a relaxation area
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.
Staff very helpful.Provided good breakfast..also had good internet service.Good location for sightseeing and shopping...convenient
The best of Aparthotel Gutenberg is without any doubt the location
The location The cleaniness, breakfast too crowded
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
Good location,nice staff,clean&well equipped room,
good location, just of La Ramba, well lit area.
Helpful staff, basic accommodation but well priced breakfast buffet
The Location Nothing
Location! Boutique hotel category. Very pleasant service
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.
tasteful accommodations, wonderful bathroom layout, very cozy. the staff was fantastic, and the overall attention to detail was the perfect touch The room was very small and very poorly lit. Extra lights (especially in the closet area would be a helpful touch) Also we traveled as a couple, only room for one suitcase in the closet, which is okay, but extra luggage holder would have been astronomically beneficial
Helpfull and pleasant staff, good restaurant and a fine location for Old city and Los Ramblos
Unique, beautiful building with fabulous rooms and interior design. The staff was exceptionally charming and helpful. They provided us with great restaurant recommendations as well. The only issue is that the hotel is situated next to a school with noisy children playing outside parts of the day. This may affect some people (like me) who must work in the rooms. But the children's voices and laughter were infinitely more pleasant than hearing a TV set :)
Fantastic room, great service, excellent location!
Good, albeit expensive menu. Our waiter on Thursday evening was very good as was the bar man. Dark room, enclosed balcony, very expensive room service, huge TV but only CNN and Eurosport in English - plenty of spanish and German programs. Waiter who poured the dregs of the wine stright into my glass
interior design central location but unsafe at night
The location, the atmosphere inside and out,the staff,the size of room, the rain shower,
Very stylish and romantic hotel - ideal for our wedding anniversary
The location was ideal for a weekend trip.
Location, decoration Some Neri Rooms are very small, heating didn't work in one of them. When we moved to a junior suite, everything was different.
Front desk, restaurant & bar staff all very friendly & helpful. Beautiful lunch in the restaurant. Wonderful location - would recommend highly.
The location was more then perfect and the hotel is really beautiful. Often we saw people stopping outside to look in. Staff was extremely helpful, kind and spoke perfect English. Our first room was too small and only window to open was with a view of the renovation going on in the hotel and this was a smoker room which we wanted from start but I could not breathe in there because of dust and then this little window. We got another room with no problems to the street with a balcony. The room was pretty, stylish and bathroom as well. Only minus is really the amount of dust and white dust from renovation, the room was covered in it so if you laid your arm somewhere you had it on your clothes. But we just did not wanna "complain" again so balcony door was always open. I even had to clean the toilet before we could use it. but we would definitely come back if no renovation of hotel was going on
The look was absolutely stunning no complaint
The location of Hotel Espana is fantastic. Located just off of La Rambla you are only a minute's walk away, the marina is only 10 mins and there are plenty of restaurants near by. The design of the hotel was pretty good, mixing very modern in with the old. While renovation is still being carried out during the day there was a little noise and some areas of the hotel are still covered in paper and tape to protect areas. The rooms where a little dusty but we understood that this is from the renovation and not because they haven't been cleaned. I would recommend wiping the inside of the cupboard down before putting your clothes in. We got a good deal on this hotel booking it last minute so for the price we paid it was pretty damn good.
The room was very modern, big enough and clean. Everything is new and good in quality. Very good sound isolation from the outside but not from inside. There is a lot of noise from other rooms and hallway.
Convenience of location. Nice staff. Nice lobby. The bathroom set up not convenient. Had to go to the bar anytime needed ice, no ice machine or anyone to bring it to room. No tissue or clock in room. Not many outlets.
Great staff and you can't beat the location. The standard rooms are quite small, just big enough for a bed and two bedside tables. However, they are sufficient comfortable for sleeping. My biggest complaint is the noise from the hallway. The walls are paper thin! You will hear everything in the hall, from someone walking by with flip flops to the late night party goers returning. Therefore, expect to have your sleep interrupted throughout the night.
The Hotel's excellent location so close to La Rambla was perfect for our short city break.
A great location, very comfortable. Loved the bathroom. Incredible latte. Breakfast is too expensive. There should be umbrellas on pool deck to provide more shade.
i book a tax from hotel to airport, this price is 3 times than i from airport to hotel, I do not konw why
Location, Styling, Staff, Accommodation Awful Wireless Connectivity Quite Small Room
Excellent: location, decoration, cleanliness, room size, comfortable beds, heating, quietness No internet wi-fi...this facility was advertised and was a key decision point for choosing this hotel. Its absence was a major nuisance. Also, some of the staff were surly and unhelpful.
Fantastic location for exploring Barcelona city on foot, great rooftop pool to come back & relax to, great bathroom facilities. Relaxed & laid back feel, free wifi. We enjoy natural light so room decor a bit dark but would not stop us from recommending this hotel.
The hotel is ideally situated in the midst of the pedestrian zone of the Old City. The decor is sleek with some oriental touches (zen court yard), and the rooms are of good size.
The room was very nice. The hotel was within walking distance of most signts we wanted to see and the staff was very helpful.
Very modern, new and well-appointed hotel. Great room near the terrace, had tea-making facilities, free wi-fi. Nothing negative to say.
the cleaning of the room and comfort and location.
Location excellent. Room clean, comfortable and very modern if you like that kind of style. Staff friendly and helpful.
Hotel is not even close to 4 stars standard. Should be classified as 3 stars
It is very central. I slept like a log as the blackout curtains totally blocked the sun light and the double glazing was really soundproof. Although, we were in Las Ramblas pedestrian walk I could not hear a thing. I also liked the mattress a lot. I think they could have offered us bathrobes and slippers. I can do without bathrobes but not without slippers as I had to walk barefoot in the bathroom.
everything, location, easy of geting there. all round great hotel no
great location, walking distance from many sights.
Very sentral location and very good service.
Close to sights, literally across from the cathedral. A short walk to Las Ramblas. Dated Decor. The room while spacious and comfortable has not been updated since the 80s (the the bathroom was renovated). It appears some rooms are renovated while others have yet to get the treatment.
They were great customer service-wise. Helped me store my bags while I was in an interview and provided me access to the spa after I had technically checked out. Overall, a great experience.
Great location, friendly staff and very helpful
Great location in the old city Next to a church where the bells chimed every hour -- through the night! Room was old and tired with peeling paint and smell
The location is excellent -- close enough to the subway lines and main thoroughfares (for taxis); excellent access to the Catedral and Ramblas; directly next to excellent shopping; and in a safe/open part of the barrio.Within the hotel, it was nice they had free cable internet in each room. The bedroom linens were old/dingy. The bathroom needed better lighting.
The view of the Cathedral was magnificent. A great location. Easy access to cultural and social activities as well as shopping.
WITHIN EASY WALKING DISTANCE OF EVERYTHING IN THE GOTHIC QUARTER. A NICE, CLEAN HOTEL WITH A SIDE WALK CAFE' FACING THE CATHEDRAL. WHILE WE WERE THERE A FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL TOOK PLACE RIGHT OUTSIDE THE FRONT DOOR. THE HOTEL WAS QUIET DESPITE BEING IN THE HEART OF ACTIVITY. THE STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY.
the quiet and off course the central site nothing
