Perfect location, easy access to every attractions, near metro, railway station and airport bus station. Quiet, got Wi-fi, big room. We booked a double room and was given a twin, but changed to double room the next day. Some reception staff's English is not very good, forgot to move our luggage into the new room. A bit slow for check in.
Clean place and convinient
What an excellent hotel! The rooms do look like the pictures, a great place to relax. Will definately go there again. The hotel is 100m from the Plaza Espagna subway-entrance, there is a small supermarket around the block. Nothing really, just minor wishes like a bathtub or coffe/tea-facilities in the room. But then again, there is complimentary water in the little fridge in the room.
The hotel was very clean, and the staff were very helpful.
The staff of the reception, cleaning of the room The service of the restaurant.
Perfect location, Cleanliness Nothing
The hotel was newly re-furbished and wery clean Only room service available
Rooms were very comfortable and good clean bathrooms but a mini bar would have been a good addition and there were no Kleenex for the ladies. Bar area was too austere, need to be made more comfortable.
Room was very good ... expecialy bathroom metro is very closed
it was excellent my wife and i plus other members of my familt will be staying again next year
Location over the main train station. The theme is stupid, childish, already dated and slightly confusing rather than the attempted "cute". What dope thought that this was a good idea and PAID for the execution? This is the perfect location for a classy and efficient business hotel and instead they put up an amusement park that isn't amusing in the slightest.
we stay at hotel because we thing it handed for trains and buse and a lovely view around.my husband been three times now and i been two time think we be going back very soon and very nice hotel the only thing is tray of tea or coffee in room when people arrived
Access to trains
Unique Space Theme keeps kids and adults entertained. Rooms were well laid out and comfortable. Hotel was quiet. Breakfast was excellent, cost 15 Euros, but so good that we ate there twice during our 3 day stay. Staff was VERY helpful in getting us where we needed to go on our short post-cruise stay in Spain. Every noise in the room was heard by everyone, including the rest room and shower. An exhaust fan of some sort would have helped with this and would have ensured the shower was not also a sauna. Also, there was not much privacy in the shower area, so everyone had to turn around when each of us got out of the shower to dress. A privacy curtain would have helped with this.
Everything was awesome, the location was superb, the metro is under the hotel and there is Taxi station right when you exit the hotel, the tour bus station is one block away and there are alot of restaurants in the metro station like MacDonalds I liked everything
Proximity to railway station.
I liked that your staff helped us with all my problems:keep our lugage before we check in and after check out,they infomed us about transport ,visiting town;our room was cleaned every day.Iliked too,that the metro and the train and turistic bus were so accesibile from te hotel.Despite other guest air condiotining was good. Nothing specially.
The convience of the hotel for transportation that I needed to various locations in the area around Barcelona. The resturant was a bit over priced and the selection of items on the menu was not very apealing.
I chose this hotel mainly for its location and convenience for station. My room was comfortable and clean, although the shower taps need some attention. The waiter in the cafeteria was very friendly although he was very overworked which meant we had to wait a long time for service. Although not really the fault of the hotel (more of my fellow guests) the smell of tobacco on 4th floor, particularly on the landing and passage was very unpleasant. It was supposed to be a non-smoking floor. I was very disappointed with the food available on Sunday night in the bar/cafeteria as the restaurant was closed. Poor choice and one of the toughest steaks I have encountered in ages!
Convenient destination to reach most of important places I was charged for breakfast as for to persons instead one. Good luck I saw the mistake while checking out. One day bathroom was not cleaned in a proper way.
Never stayed in that hotel. It was overbooked. And we got transferred to different hotel.
the location they are not aware about the conditions required in the request
Great location; Great views on the front rooms; Clean aspect
location and staff
We had a wonderful suite overlooking the entire beautiful Catalonia!! It was the best experience ever! Can't wait to visit again. Thank you for your hospitality!! Best regards.
Great location. Nice rooftop pool with great views AC didn't work in my room
Location!!! Subway - entrance at the entrance of the hotel, bus from/to airport - 50 m, Montjuic - 500 m. The room was clean, breakfast - ok. The hotel seems a bit oldish, but it was perfect for our 2 night stay.
Perfect location & perfect view :) No.
fantastic location - good service
Location, friendly staff, very quiet room, good breakfast, one child under 12 can stay free of charge. Small room, air conditioning did not work at all , non-smoking room was actually a smoking one(room stinks) even if the sign was hanged on the door room, towels and pillow cases had stains.
Close to train station A little run down.
Fast organisation on the reception, full information, kind porsonal In my room the floor was without covering.
Location close to the subway Staff was rude. Poor quality. The worst quality of beds. I still have back pain from sleeping there. It felt like if I was in a motel
The room facilties They dont have room service!!!
Comfortable clean room close to Metro into the city. The noise from a building site beside the hotel that went 24/7.
Exellent location, Small rooms and view from balcony
Very noisy at night. Not very restful. My only complaint about the hotel
I really liked the staff; the were very accommodating. The room was very clean. Excellent location. The food, at least breakfast was not very good. Bacon was not drained. The fruit was not very fresh......
Expo Hotel Barcelona is a 4star totally "purse friendly" hotel very close to the Barcelona Sants central railway station. The hotel is easly joinable on feet (less than 5 min walk) and is startegically placed between two subway stations (Barcelona Sants and Tarragona). It is very clean and confortable and rooms are very well equipped. You will receive your own bathrobe and slippers. The building itself may not be very stylish but all considered it is a very good choice for a short stay in Barcelona.
Location in immediate proximity to the central rail station with direct service to the airport blesses any enterprise. The desk is covered 24 hours and a taxi to the airport if necessary is not too expensive. Rooms are clean. Beds are firm. Staff is friendly. Prices are modest. What's not to like? Catching a flight needs no surprises.
it was very close to one of the main the train stations and the view of the montjuic palace. Some of the furniture was broken. There wasnt any facilities in the room for a hot drink.
Localization and the room The price of the breakfast
Rooms were beautiful! Staff kept the best service throughout stay AirConditioner doesn't go much lower that 22. Also, hair dryers are not standard nor is a coffeemaker in room. Piano lobby can get loud as noice can be heard from rooms at least 5 floors up.
All No thing
Location, comfort, staff
Staff very friendly and professional. Premises clean and comfortable No tea and coffee facilities in room.
Inner design is rather nice, rooms are modern and we specially liked open bath space. Although is near the city center, because it's on the little hill it's not so easy to walk in and out. We mostly used taxi in the end.
the hotel itself and the staff and its proximity to the city, its quietness and views. No door on the bathroom of room 605. I was told this was a design feature, if so, it does not work at all.
The hotel is located on the hill side at Monjuic, overlooking the city. Two minutes walk at the back of the hotel you can board a cablecar to the beach front, near the world trade centre.The begining of La Rambla at Colombus statue is 15-20 minutes walk from the hotel.The Hotel itself was clean and confortable, the rooms where spacious and the bath tub is big enough for two people, the walk in shower is a real bonus. We didn't make use of the restaurant or bar. Nothing to do with the hotel, but the only negative thing is that because the hotel is not in the city centre we used taxis to go to and from the hotel at night and we didn't get the feeling that the taxi drivers where the most honest people in the ctiy. Then again this could be subjective. A taxi ride from plaza catalunia will cost $9-15, La rambla $8 during the day and $11 (Nov. 2010)
The staff were very helpful. The room was well designed and equipped with a balcony and a good view. Food and facilities were good. The service was very attentive but sometimes the outcomes were a little 'quirky'...however we loved it. We liked the hotel and the location is great from one point of view. However people need to know you are on a hill overlooking Barcelona which is great and the walk down is easy. But coming back usually means a taxi.
Small boutique hotel - elegant, quiet and very comfortable. Very helpful English speaking front office staff. Rooms were spacious and high quality with excellent view.
I liked the view in the hotel. My room was very spacious and I had an amazing balcony. Certainly the management need to look a little closer at the service levels their staff provide. The main downside for the weekend for me is any request was met with long delays.
Great location fantastic hotel delux room perfect
Modern style staff were not that friendly or helpful
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.
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!
pleasent and comfortable clean/ respectable/ I needed computer with power point to work on a presentation and it was not avelable
Excellent location, few metro stations from the very heart of the city.
very close to the Barcelo Sants train station too small room
Efficient booking in system. Lighting very subdued
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
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 near from barcelona sants. no.its very comfort
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.
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.
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 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 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.
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.
front desk staff and housekeeping staff
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
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.
Hotel staffs are very helpfull and friendly
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.
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!
large room cleanliness of bathroom, mold in shower
The Hotel Grums was excellent value, the rooms are modern and a good size. Staff were helpful and pleasant. The hotel has a nice atmosphere.
Location - close to cruise port, Port Vell, La Rambla. Super helpful staff. Generally comfortable. Shower panel too short allowing water to spill into bathroom. Need maintenance because of spills. Not enough storage for luggage.
Don't pre-pay. They can never figure it out. They always try to charge you again when you are checking out. The first time when I didn't know they have this issue and my company pre-paid they even managed to convince me to pay again on check-out. I never got my money back either.
Room had great space. Bathrooms were excellent and well equipped.Great size bed.
Politeness of the staff, breakfast, location of the hotel, room size, regular size iron in the room Welness area was renovated, no pool/relax however the weather was quite good. There was too cold in the lobby after the hot weather outside.
Very nice comfortable hotel. Close to subway station (5 minute walk) No coffee maker or iron in the room.
the bed! location from downtown and the beach
Thought the standard was very high.
nothing a very bad and extremely dirty place to stay
Large room (good for children), seperate bath and shower, use of swimming pool and good location. Note that the pool is only open limited hours at the weekend.
Spacious and clean. Good Location.
location and comfortable swimmingpool
breakfast null heating, uncomfortable bed, uncomfortable pillow
Large room, comfortable bed, varied and good quality breakfast, good and calm location.
close to Sants railway station, close to Metro station, good bed, nice room (although there was a column in the middle of the room) despite double glass windows, the road can be noisy
i liked about Abba Sants, is that he is near everything, train station, metro station, and several pubs and restaurents
good well-comes by the receiption (with smile), which makes really big differance for customers
clean room, nearby metro station, late check-out time no complaints
Excellent help of the staff and very clean rooms.
The hotel was very close to amenities such as metro stop and also the cities main train station. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel had all modern facilities and was very clean and tidy. The restaurant menu was not that extensive, otherwise everything was perfect
Really great location - entrance to Metro right outside hotel, and main train station only 5-10 mins walk. Area felt safe. Very quiet.
Chosen for its location which was excellent. Air conditioning feeble and pretty ineffectual. Nasty smell in bathroom and tap on washbasin so loose as to be almost unusable. Not expected quality for a four-star hotel. Fortunately ours was a single night stopover.
I am completely livid at the desk staff with this hotel.I gave clear instructions for a wake up call at 6am,luckily I woke at 6:30or we would have missed our trainThe morning clerk did nhot offer any apology said it had been for 7am iliked best leaving the place
The room was excellent big comfortable bed and very nice size. Staff could be a bit more helpfull and friendler
None Breakfast was decent
Good basic hotel. Decent location and close to different metro stations for different lines that connect to most of the city.
Clean, simple business hotel The smell of the carpet is awfull.
I was working while at Hotel (not on holiday) and did not spend much time in the room. All was fine, although my colleague thought her room was dark and needed more lights. Location was good for the conference centre (I prefer a smaller hotel that is not on a busy street) You can order drinks and snacks via reception or in the small lounge area, these were quickly supplied, but service stops at 11pm. A small bar that is open for longer might be better.
Good location for visiting the sights and Montjuic area of the city. One receptionist was unhelpful at first when asked about a local attraction. She eventually looked up the information on the internet for me.
very nice room, good location
very convenient location, close to several metro stations and buses that will connect to the airport and places of interest to tourists
I loved the style of the rooms, and the sauna and turchich bath the corridors were hotter than the rooms, because the realy cool green lamps were realy hot... they should change the type of lightbulb...
the bed,the decor would like coffee making facilities in room, could hear through walls,
The staff at the front desk were not professional at all. The room is very small, with no place to sit except for one person, if you do not want to sit on the bed. The street is very noisy and the noise is heard in the room. The room is lightened badly. The corridor is suffocating.
Nice room design, comfortable beds, excellent quality for breakfast and very, very nice staff.
The personnel were kind and proffesional. The hotel was calm and quiet. The breakfast was really fresh and good. The hotel and equipment of the room was modern and good. The room we stayed in (2 persons) was pretty small and the bed was narrow, but still comfortable.
Great location near a major train station made it very easy to reach the hotel. Overall our stay was excellent. There was no shared computer but you can email documents to the front desk and they will print them for you. Something interesting to note - there was no "bathroom," as in everything was in the actual room. The toilet was in a closet and the shower opened up to the room. You wouldn't want to share that room with someone you didn't intimately know. I thought that was strange for a hotel geared for business travellers.
The modern room The front desk staff expect customers to do the greetings. They will not raise their heads from the desk until you say first hello even though they know you are right in front of them. There is no bell to ring at the front desk when no one is at the desk, which often happened. They answer your question briefly and move on quickly to other duties to let you know they are not interested in answering any further questions. Breakfast is additional, which makes it not as cheap as it says on Kayak. The Wi-Fi was weak , which is a problem if you go there for business.
It was accesible to all the main sighseeing location. Accesible to all main transportations. Excellent views. None
The hotel is very conveniently located for the Sants railway station, which allows train, bus or metro access throughout the city and beyond. The staff - in particular Patricia at reception - were all very friendly and helpful. There is one strange anomaly about the room design... There is nowhere to hang used bath / shower towels! Not even a hook on the wall, let alone a towel rail! On arrival the AC in our room didn't work. The hotel was fully booked, but after a couple of hours Patricia was able to move us to another room with perfect climate control!
The hotel persnnel was very pleasing and cooperative, the hotel design is very modern and chic.
the mini bar was for free, the room was very new and nice, very clean and confortable not music channels on TV, neither radio
We are English with very little Spanish and found your staff at reception and throughout the hotel to be very polite and helpful. Thank You.
New looking hotel very modern, not enough thought put into the general requirements of guests. No restaurant for evening meals. No bidet. No where to hang & dry wet bath towels. Wash basin plug difficult to operate. Shower floor very slippy when in use, request for bath mat ignored. Toilet door squeeked badly more so through the night. Bad overall experience. Room 208
really close to the railway station Sants (50 m). all is OK
Location and Staff Better bedding options. All rooms have king siza beds. For groups it would be better to have some rooms with separate beds.
Very friendly, helpful staff, good location, and quiet.
the location of the hotel 1) the AC wasnt working in the room they had to change us to another room after 2 days 2) one of the members of our group cancelled at the last minute. We requested they reduce our room from a triple to a twin, they agreed. However at checkout they said booking.com would still charge them commission for a triple and hence made us pay alomost the whole amount for a triple (despite us staying in a twin room for the duration). They gave us a small discount for each night. Not acceptable.
Great location to las rambals street and the beach, beds were comfortable and the bathroom amenities were great. The pre-requested iron and board were not in the room. Also out electricity would go out after using the iron, it delayed our visit to the city
Close to tourist attractions , La Rambla is about a 15min walk away There were bed bugs in my room and i have been severly bitten. Other than that, the hotel was ok. i hope that this issue will be resolved as it would be shame to see this hotel go down as its in a good location
Short walk to Las Ramblas. Right next to Metro. Paying for parking
Clean, beds were comfortable, friendly staff, close to port (10 minute walk)
The breakfast buffet was fantastic! The facilities were great, the staff was friendly and super helpful, the cleaning staff was also very nice. The room was also great! Overall experience was wonderful!
Very functional, very central, very clean and tidy. Staff were very polite, helpful and pleasant. No
I liked it's proximity to where I was working Lack of English TV chanels
The room looked like the room on the website when I booked it. I'm a light sleeper so the fact that it was quite and there was very little internal noise was great. When we were there there was a general strike and the hotel put up notices to advise guests of this unlike some other hotels that I'm aware of. The hairdryer was in the bathroom and was one of those ones that is just a hose. Guests should definately bring their own hair dryer!!
Convenirnt for Port & Cruise Ships and City
friendly staffs nothing
We got into Barcelona early morning and were allowed in our room early. That was great! The receptionist at the front desk was very helpful and kind.
The young lady at the front desk was polite and handling her unfortunate situation like a true professional. She was left alone at the front desk with a very large group arrival. -The room: was clean and well stocked. The sheets were soft and the bed was comfortable. -The shuttle arrived at the hotel and was prompt in the morning, unlike mentioned in previous reviews and the driver was polite. They must have read the reviews and corrected the situation. It had comfortable seating with ample room between seats. Room got warm during the night and could not open any windows and could not adjust the temperature setting. We were over heated during the night..Yuck! Management please fix this as it ruined the experience. Management left one person at the desk and the lobby was crowded when we arrived.
We were only at this hotel for about 5 hours. Very comfortable bed in a nice room, quick check-in/out, friendly staff. The shuttle stops running at 12:30AM. Despite the description of this hotel being at the airport, it's actually about a 15 minute taxi ride away which costs us $30. Air conditioner would not run (I'm assuming the hotel doesn't turn on the AC until later in the year as this was 4/1) so we slept with the windows open. Temperature was comfortable, but there was a fair amount of road noise.
Plane was delayed and we got in over 2 hour late. Shuttle was not running but hotel paid our taxi fare. Super helpful staff Much further from airport than expected. No local restaurants nearby. had to eat in the hotel restaurant. Breakfast a little pricey.
Location--close to the airport Free shuttle to the airport Room had awkward layout--easy to trip Very limited hours on fitness center Elevators are very small Restaurant overpriced for the food quality
Staff is very nice and gives a first class service Air condition does work on heating
Nothing at all Very bad location in the middle of industrial area . It's a 1 star hotel comparing to the US hotels.
nice facilities, reasonably priced It is literally in the middle of NOWHERE. There is nothing except industrial wasteland within five miles. For a layover before a flight, it is good, if you use the shuttle. However, our flight left too early and required a cab which cost $40 for the five mile trip - RIDICULOUS! We would have been better off staying downtown.
Nice rooms and very helpful staff. Very handy to the airport. Restaurant hours were somewhat limited.
wide room, free wireless, good breakfast. 1st floor room was quiet even though it watched towards Gran Via. phone in the room had broken dial buttons
The staff were friendly and accommodating.
Firstly I liked the staff who were most pleasant and helpful. We had a triple room which was really 2 rooms adjoining and was so spacious and comfortable. The location was excellent for shopping and sight-seeing and also convenient to the airport (15 minutes by taxi). It was the best value hotel I have ever stayed in and will certainly stay there again. I have already recommended it to friends who are planning a trip to Barcelona. Thank you for a most enjoyable stay. Absolutely nothing!
Excellent location, very helpful staff, Big comfortable rooms, big comfortable beds. Good breakfast. Only problem was lack heating. It was october so they had not switched from AC to heating mode yet. Extra blankets supplied.
convenient location to go to the airport and to go for sightseeing. The room is clean.
Staff was very helpful.Very nice room.
We were 3 people in an appartment with 2 rooms. There was plenty of space. Everything was excellent. Location is good, 3 min walk to a big metro and bus node (Placa Espanya) There were only 6 tables available for breakfast and 1 day out of 9 we had to queue to be able to eat in the morning.
It was a very pleasant experience. Only few minutes walk to the nearest metro station and other tourist attractions. It is also near to the bus stop going to the airport thus very convenient.
Location and room space. No
The place near city center. Problems because of paying.
Price, interesting interior, responsive staff at the "reception" 1. The hotel is really very slow wi-fi 2. Tiled floor in the room is very cold. 3. Indeed, from time to time is not well cleaned the room.4.bed on wheels!!! are leaving in opposite directions:) 5.very poor sound insulation
location and public transport
The walls were thin!!!!! If you know what I mean.
nice spacious room! great value for money
Would highly recomend. About 3 stops of the metro from La Rambla, Barcelona. Very Central. Very comfortable.
Fee to use safe / no trash can in room / Internet was unreliable / heat in lounge only, meaning bedroom too cold, or lounge too warm
Price, Kitchen, central situation (close to MontJuick and Placa Espanya) When using the shower some water was running out of the cabin; Some dust in a few places.
The comfort of the room for the price paid
Some of the staff were extremley helpful regardless of the language barrier and friendly also.
The location is perfect to explore every single part of the city and the metro is in front tof the hotel, even though there is no need to reach the Ramblas area and the old part of the city. They tried to gave us a room with a very small bed, not really a double room. Furthermore the room was dirty and not cleaned yet. Only after complaining they changed us the room as a favour. The breakfast is enough, but very poor quality.
clean, convient noise, cost
Breakfasts, cleanliness little oldfashioned and as I said noissy
Good position Breakfast - margarine and rubbish fruit juice, bathroom, beds
Good location. Close to city Water came down from the ceiling in bathroom, maybe failure with the a/c
good location for central barcelona
The location was excellent as well as the cost per night. It has a secure parking garage. The facilities were basic, there was traffic noise throughout night as hotel is situated on a busy street
great location,reception staff very helpfull rooms clean but very run down . in need of painting and minor repairs . traffic can be heard very loud even on 7th floor.
Value for money & good location No in-room tea/coffee. We, initially, had no TV remote in our room and the elderly male receptionist wanted to charge us 2euros a day for its use. I complained and later asked another receptionist and he supplied the remote with no request for charge. This was unfortunate as all the receptionists were very helpful.
My wife like very much the tv channels channel + and channel action. I like to sit in the bath. we like the internet opportunity. There is some noise from other guests speaking in the night and also noise from shower and toiletflush in walls.
Staff was very friendly. The room was nice and clean. Good value for money. Wifi was down. The room was a bit noisy, but of course it's Barcelona. The city that never goes to sleep.
Throughly enjoyable - excellent thankyou.
Good location for the metro and therefore easy access into the city centre within 5 minutes The hotel staff were very helpful
the location and the staff.
Good value for money, good location, comfortable room View from our window
The room was very modern we had a terrace with outside seating not great views but it was hot gave you a great place to enjoy the out doors good location if you are taking a cruise it's about a 15 miintue drive they will call a cab for you they arrive very quickly.but beware the price ride will coat about 20euro you can walk it it will take 30mins but it not an easy wall. If you are English speaking everyone was great and also good suggestion on place near by to eat.rooms were quite you could here the people next to you. The area is a little noisy at night but I think every where is loud in Barcelona
Location of the Paral-lel is good easy to walk to the Ramblas and the Marina. Lots of local eateries and nearby supermarket. Would be nice to have tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
Found this hotel really suited our needs. It was clean, tidy, and comfortable. Not huge rooms, but airconditioned and was what we expected. The staff were friendly and helpful. 10min walk to la Rambla, 1min walk to bus stop and never far from bars and restaurants. Room we were in was very quiet... had the hotel breakfast a few times which was excellent! We both enjoyed our stay!
the hospitality from the staff breakfast
Clean rooms; good location; friendly and helpful staff N/A
