The location of the hotel was second to none. There were signs for a Bar but couldn't find one.
Very cclean room No kettle in room. No hot water for shower on the last day.
The location was ideal for access to the metro (within 50m), restaurants, bars and tourists sites. None, everything as expected.
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.
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.
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.
Garden, location rooms and cafeteria are not clean enogh
The location was fantastic.
Modern, relaxed hotel, easy access to the Ramblas and other tourist attractions.
the location and the free wi-fi computers in the rooms were super.
The location is amazing and the rooms are very clean and stylish. we could not check in until 3pm eventhough I asked for early check in. They did however take our luggage. I did not like the bed spread it was really uncomfortable and scratchy.
Location is great, near all touristic attractions.The staff was very friendly Cleaning of the bathroom . The spa facilities were somewhat disappointing... Cold water in the spa-pool and not very clean.
The room was plenty of space for my family. The location is very strategic to do tourism in Barcelona city. The loby is very small and he room service is not full of options.
we loved it being just off the pl catalunya, we loved how quiet the hotel bedrooms were, we liked the size of rooms, beds and bathroom, it felt very spacious. we had a lovely little balcony out to a quiet back street-not all rooms have these.we had a great time and will be back to the catalonia ramblas. the spa didn't offer very much in the way of treatments, so we didn't use it as planned.
Location is great, near all touristic attractions No complaints
staff were most helpful and the location was very central
restuarant Pelai coud be more attrativ with priceoffer in the evening and more visibel to guest from the street-it is too quiet.
Cleaning - exceptionelle !!! I was with my 9 month child, (stressed about cleaning) - and it was perfect for me !!! I liked to have the option: with or without breakfast because we wanted to have it in downtown... and thanks for the tea and coffee from the room, free of charge .... Special thanks to City taxi because they come back to the hotel and returned my wife handy lost in the taxi !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! nothing special to mention...
Very large and quiet room We ask for a non smoking room but according to the smell it was not
Every thing about Barcelona Nothing all ok
the location is excellent. no iron provided. kinda of difficult for business traveller. also the hotel seems dated.
Service was good. Breakfast delicious. The douche worked badly, it was very noisy. And doors worked not good, as after taking a shower, there were water on the flour everywhere.
The location of the hotel is great First of all the check in time is too late and the condition of the rooms is poor. It is not a 4 stars hotel mutch more like a 3 stars hotel.
excellent location The Hotel needs to be updated, slightly over rated.
Excellent City centre position
Excellent location just off Placa Catalunya, around the corner from Las Ramblas. Quite expensive.
Great location, but you pay for it. Rooms were tiny.
Friendly stuff, nice room and bathroom. No indoor pool, top floor room rather noisy at night due to rooftop machinary.
The staff was very very rude and none professional It actually put us off from the start The hotel is well located and deserves better employees All over Saturday was great The reception from desk employee
Location, breakfast In improved number there was no promised dressing gown and slippers
Excellent location and very friendly personnel. Spacious suite rooms. We stayed at two rooms. In one of them, the air conditioner did not work properly. We reported the problem, but it was never fixed.
location very central, pool area a nice relaxing feature front desk staff not very knowledgable about the area, events, etc. Having to move mid-stay du to a flood in the room above us was an inconvenience.
Excellent service and very kind and helpful staff. Tasty styling, nice beds and quite room. The room was a bit dark for people of our age.
The location was excellent, the service was great. The room was large enough to live in comfortably for our two week stay, and well designed. The restaurants were both excellent, and the rooftop pool deck was a perfect place to practice yoga in the morning with a gorgeous city view.
Reception staff were very helpful, the men especially, the first one we met on arrival was not very good !, everyone else was very good, cleanliness was excellent, would definitely stay again next time we visit Barcelona. On 2 Reception staff on arrival were not very efficient and tried to charge me for the deposit I had already paid.
The location could not have been better. The staff was quite helpful and spoke English very well. The hotel was expensive. The location accounted for much of this, but at these prices, the hotel should have been even nicer.
location and cleanliness of the room
clean room . the hotel has a great location. we had to pay for a connection for electric.
Location is excellent.
good location overprice, poor room facilities, room was cleansed poorly
location is perfect the rooms are small but comfortable enough
I liked the design of the room, its comfort and all the facilities they had in it, breakfast, information pack and maps of most visited attractions in Barcelona and around it hand out during check-in. Also, the location of the hotel itself as it is situated in Las Ramblas.
Perfect location, extremely clean rooms and public areas, delicious breakfast buffet, amazing staff and very comfortable beds. Occasional road noise
Central location The front rooms are very noisy because of intensive traffic and poor isolation. Limited choice at breakfast buffet.
The close proximity to the city centre and the amazing view from the rooftop deck.
The room was comfortable and restful
Very much, is very good located If we would come by car, no posibility to parc in the hotel
The location and the cleanliness of 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 location oh hotel and its staff on my opinion design of the hotel is too dark
clean, attractive, roomy room, everything worked
Close to everything.
Location Many things
The location, the terrace, the staff. The room was small, with little storage space for clothes.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
the extra-ordinary decoration we would prefer to be able to open our window -which faced the corridor-
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.
Quiet, near Ramla, very good service at reception desk.
perfect location to explore central Barcelona, but very quiet for a good nights rest the bar was shut for a few weeks!
It's location was ideal, two blocks from the Barri Gothic, the Plaza de Catalunya, and the Ramblas. Despite its being in the city, it was very quiet in our room.
Excellent location, very friendly staff, my room was clean and relatively spacious The price is relatively high for the age and furniture of this hotel
Location great. Staff were helpful and friendly. Beds were eall comfortable. Shower good. Instead of a double bed there were 2 singles put together, this was fine, except they were on wheels and kept on rolling across the room. Great if you want to rearrange the room though.
great location but bathroom is old, emitting sewer smell
Very central but quiet
location, quality of rooms
The room was clean with adequate space for 2 and the bathroom clean and comfortable with a tab. The hotel was on a quiet street but very close to the Ramblas as well. Close to the aerobus stop at placa Catalunya. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was nice but kind of expensive (16,2 euros)
Excellent location on a very quiet street, excellent beds, warm room
Beds are particularly comfortable and reception staff very helpful. Would be improved by provision of a small bar in the seating area on the ground floor, adjacent to the Reception area.
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.
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.
Staff was helpful. This hotel is over priced based on the quality of the hotel.
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
Excellent breakfast and prime location
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 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Position and convenience is excellent The Bar area was a bit clinical and not conducive as a relaxation area
Location, room decor, room size. Expensive breakfast :)
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
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.
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 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 of the hotel is excellent Employees collaborators Recommend to live in Close to everything Nothing
the location of this hotel is the best in Barcelona.
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.
location the rooms and interior of the hotel were not as expected
The freindly atmosphere and good service limited dining facility choice
quite efficient and the location overpriced
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.
Very attractive throughout and huge room
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.
Location on La Rambla. The surprising additional charge for my 8 year-old son.
The location unnecessary noise (e.g. from electricity)
Location and price was good.
Wonderful location, friendly staff, clean rooms.
good location no tea & coffee making facilities had to pay wxtra for safe when it was one of the features mentioned
The central location is the hotels best feature.
the location the price of the room and of the breakfast
location does not meat 4 star requirments.
The location is a big advantage of this hotel. It is very convenient to get any point of the city. Maybe it needs a little touch up in order to make its rooms a little bit modern.
The spacious room, the balcony. and the street's view The lobby is not classy, the breakfast not various, there is no bell boy to help with baggages, and during the 6 days of our stay they did not clean the room, they only made up the beds, sometimes they even didn't remove the garbage from the pins.
The Receptionist The enlargment mirror in the bathroom did not work and no blanket on the bed
Great Location right on La Rambla, Building and Interior central to major attractions. Spacious D/Room with balcony overlooking La Rambla. daily room service, Reception and cleaning Staff friendly. very enjoyable stay €15.00 for Breakfast to expensive encourages guests to dine elsewhere.Why not reduce price and fill the breakfast room. €2.00 for safety box key is petty and should be discontinued .
Ease of access to the Ramblas and the city. N / A
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
good location, just of La Ramba, well lit area.
Location was convenient Staff for the most part was either rude or uninformed
pleasant staff, location in the city center, good breakfast incl in price for room cleanliness of the room, esp. bathroom
