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
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.
The location was fantastic.
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.
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.
Modern, relaxed hotel, easy access to the Ramblas and other tourist attractions.
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 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
Friendly stuff, nice room and bathroom. No indoor pool, top floor room rather noisy at night due to rooftop machinary.
excellent location The Hotel needs to be updated, slightly over rated.
Excellent location just off Placa Catalunya, around the corner from Las Ramblas. Quite expensive.
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.
Excellent City centre position
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.
Location, breakfast In improved number there was no promised dressing gown and slippers
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.
Location is excellent.
Perfect location, extremely clean rooms and public areas, delicious breakfast buffet, amazing staff and very comfortable beds. Occasional road noise
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.
clean room . the hotel has a great location. we had to pay for a connection for electric.
location and cleanliness of the room
good location overprice, poor room facilities, room was cleansed poorly
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.
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.
location is perfect the rooms are small but comfortable enough
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.
The close proximity to the city centre and the amazing view from the rooftop deck.
Central location The front rooms are very noisy because of intensive traffic and poor isolation. Limited choice at breakfast buffet.
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 room was comfortable and restful
Location Many things
Close to everything.
Very much, is very good located If we would come by car, no posibility to parc in the hotel
the location oh hotel and its staff on my opinion design of the hotel is too dark
clean, attractive, roomy room, everything worked
Generally Ok, nothing in particular The price did not include breakfast, surpricing!
big room & toilet with tube and shower , friendly staff talking english, location is perfect, metro is exactly near the hotel's door and by walk to ramblas it take 10 min breakfast was limited and the plates was sometimes dirty & wet
Our stay was very pleasant and the staff were all very helpful and kind. Super clean and nice rooms. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends.
The location was great for seeing the sights and shopping in Barcelona. The room was updated, clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly.
Very close to the Metro The bed had a rubberised undersheet, very hot and sweaty! Room was very noisy.
Proximity to the city sights Small and often unattended bar.Street side room was noisy and had to move to the rear of hotel.
Large room, excellent facilities
Good sized rooms. Clean & tidy. Great location.
Very convenient location, friendly and helpful staff, clean comfortable rooms. Would have been nice if the pool was heated in the autumn
the proximity to the underground station, the quietness and cleanliness of the room.
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 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.
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 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 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-
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Staff was very kind and helpful, Location was excellent
Location, room decor, room size. Expensive breakfast :)
excellent location, very central but quite.
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.
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
Position and convenience is excellent The Bar area was a bit clinical and not conducive as a relaxation area
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 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 on La Rambla. The surprising additional charge for my 8 year-old son.
location the rooms and interior of the hotel were not as expected
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 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 freindly atmosphere and good service limited dining facility choice
Very attractive throughout and huge room
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.
the location of this hotel is the best in Barcelona.
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.
quite efficient and the location overpriced
The price, excellent location and very friendly and helpful reception staff. Rooms can be a bit noisy as no carpets in rooms or corridors.
Good location,nice staff,clean&well equipped room,
The location The cleaniness, breakfast too crowded
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
Helpful staff, basic accommodation but well priced breakfast buffet
good location, just of La Ramba, well lit area.
The Location Nothing
pleasant staff, location in the city center, good breakfast incl in price for room cleanliness of the room, esp. bathroom
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.
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...
Staff was helpful. This hotel is over priced based on the quality of the 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 location The breakfast was too expensive.
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.
The Hotel could not have been placed better for accessibility to all of the activities and services in and around Barcelona
Very close to everything, great value for the rooms, internet access and printing, very clean, Highly reccommend this hotel
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.
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.
