I purchased this hotel as a gift for my fiance and her mother. They were very happy and had nothing but great things to say about the hotel, satff, and location.
almost everything I had no french TV chain (TV5 was not available)
the room was nicethe view was nice was good that the shopping mall was very close to the hotel. would been a real 4 stars hotel if you have someone take the luggage to the room and bring it down during check out, also there was always bad smell at night in the bathroom, dont know was only in my room or in other rooms too. also people on front desk some of them should put a smile on their face, they r very helpfull but should always be a smile.
Good scenery no teapot, coffee pot, or teakettle, it is very inconvenient for me.
It was amazing. Room had a great city view and alos free mini bar (Water, soft drink, beer) 1 of each per day. Room was clean and the bed was massive. ++++
Good, clean, comfortable room. Free drinks in mini-bar. Would have preferred coffee/tea in room to cold drinks. Dining room had no atmosphere and not much choice of menu, though breakfast was excellent.
We liked the room. The design was so different from other hotels. The breakfast was impressiv and I had a swim in the pool on the 23rd floor, which I really enjoyed. The beds were very comfortable. Easy access to the Metro. A very comfortable hotel. The only thing was how they were dressed in the reception a little bit boring.
The room view and the variety of the breakfast First of all they've forgotten to park my car... someone mistakenly put the keys in the draw of the cars already parked. Second, the room-cleaners forgot to add more toillet paper and tissues. Apart from this, all was great.
The view of the room was great we had a great time in a nice hotel
Everything Not Applicable - everything perfect
Everything. Rooms were mamzing, and we really liked the terrace cafe bar. None.
Room comfort. It has everything we need. No.
Very nice hotel. Just a few minutes from city centre by MTR. Inexpensive in low season.
Good room,friendly staff
Very modern and very quiet neiborhood. It was very convienient to the metro and the tram but out away from the crowded city. You could see the ocean from our room and watch the sailboats. It was nice and friendly. I would recommend getting the breakfast with your room. It was an international type buffet with lots of variety and very good food. Lots of opportunities to have a different breakfast every morning for a least a week stay. We were there 5 days and never had the same breakfast twice.The price was good for what you got. Good sized room. No, nothing. We were pleasantly surprised and feel we made a good choice.
Very nice hotel and very good service. Very quiet, we slept good without any disturbance from other guestroom or outside.. It was easy to take tram or metro around the city. Tram right outside of the hotel, metro about two minutes to walk. If I go back to Barcelona some day, I probably choose this hotel again. Good breakfast, and when we where at the hotel, they had a offer of 5 EUR for breakfast, insted of 18 EUR as the website told us. So we had breakfast everyday at the hotel instead of going out to eat it. It was not alowed for children in the spa at the basement. Since there was no warming at the roof pool and the water there was could, our children could not take a swim, I understand that they don't want to have children in the spa, but I wished they had a warm roof pool or some other pool for children to use.
Very nice room: clean, big, high-tech, comfortble bed. Very friendly staff, all can speak good English. Good location with sea view.
The design of the hotel and service. The morning breakfast is also really great.
The hotel staff is very nice and is dealing with the situation (see below). Inspiring futuristic and contemorary style of the furniture and high tech. The hoel was open two days before we arrived and it had a few glitches: hear drier not easily available, air conditioning can not be set properly, computer in the room including the lights resetting at night, no coffie machine nor any way to make coffie in the room, towels dramaticly large and heavy (use tinny "italian style" ones).
Although we had our doubts on the location, the experience very quickly made clear this was no issue at all: metro, tram, taxis are so easy from this location to get. On top of that the hotel was very quiet and well equiped. The free wifi that was quite performant was an extra. The breakfast was ok, but not more than that.
Breakfast; wheel-chair-accessibility in my 10 days at the hotel i was able to open without help the door to my room only one time.
Everything about the hotel.. The location was perfect for us not so far from La rambla and the city center -Plaza Catalunya- (about 2 min walk to reach the begining of La Rambla) and the tourist bus has a stop station just infront of the hotel door + their was a very close metro station L3 just at the begining of La Rambla. Nothing really. And I'm planing to stay their at my next visit.
perfect view, nice room, balcony, swimmingpool,everything
We have stayed 4times at this hotel and everyone is very helpful we really enjoy staying there for comfort Location Hotel staff its wonderful
Nice, well furnished rooms. Good bathroom. Choose this hotel partly because it was announced to have a roof top pool. Now it turned out the pool is about 5x3 m and less than a meter deep. Disappointed about this!
Smell was disgusting all over the hotel
The hotel is ideally situated at the bottom of the main road leading to all the shops and city centre. You can walk to most attractions and the night life is amazing. The bathroom in my room was amazing too with luxury bath and shower. The hotel staff are very friendly and will help you with anything. I would definitely stay there again. Spotlessly clean! Take some teabags as you only get 2 per night with powdered milk. Breakfast was extra for my stay and eating out is a lot cheater than the hotels food. But the hotels food is excellent as a last resort. Just minor issues, other than those I have no real complaints at all about the hotel as it was amazing.
lovely balcony with view of harbour. Huge bed. Very clean. Nice bar. 5min walk from Ramblas and 10mins to beach. I'm booking again for next year. Not the worlds greatest shower, but nice bath and bathroom. Oh, and don't binge on the mini bar...predictably extortionate.
The greeting upon arrival at the hotel was excellent. The staff were extremely friendly, and the room itself was very clean and comfortable, if small. The location is good. Access to the centre of town is via a very pleasant walk up Las Ramblas. It is also an equally pleasant walk along the promenade which is just next to the hotel. All the rooms have kettles. Upon plugging in said kettle I received quite an alarming electric shock followed by a loud bang, sparks and smoke coming from the plug socket and a consequent power cut in the room. Whilst I accept these things happen as electrical appliances get older and need replacing, what alarmed me was the total lack of concern on behalf of the staff when I notified them that of what had happened, and of the fact that I had actually been electrocuted in their hotel room. In fact their only response was to send up a handyman to replace the kettle and reset the fuse. I mentioned what had happened twice at the reception desk and quite frankly other than showing some slight surprise they couldn't seem to care less. Another disappointing factor was the view. Many of the reviews, and indeed the website boast a fantastic panoramic view of the Barcelona skyline, whilst in reality the view, even from the 8th floor, consists of a massive pylon (which sits directly in front of the hotel) and an average vantage point of the Barcelona skyline at best.
The staff were helpful and very friendly
Absolutely great Cold water in the bath monday morning, but it was advised in advance
Location, cleaniness There were no 4 star hotel facilities: No refrigerator,No tea/coffee maker,No safe box( you need to pay 5 Euros per day for that which is not announced in the hotel or booking.com websites) ,No even clock in the room! .The swimming pool is the smallest I have ever seen in my life ; it is 3 by 3 meters dimensions only.
Quality 4 star for a 2/3 star price for the night we stayed. Per above prices increased 3 fold by the end of the week so we had to move on. Location. While this was fine the directions for non drivers was poor. eg it said it was 4 stops on the Metro from the Centre - it was actually 5.
The room was very small and rather poorly equiped. No fridge. Poor internet connection.
I liked the fact that the metro was directly across the road and the hotels proximity to the city centre. The room's were very nice too. I think the hotel rooms could really use more pillows.
Nothing Bathroom was dirty with ingrained dirt around the bath. Also the bath did not have a plug and the washand basin was very badly cracked. Bedroom floor was not swept properly and bedspread was marked. (Sheets and towels were clean)
the overall readiness of the staff to help...restaurant girl was amazing and receptionist could need some help...he is extreamly fast and nice but he is human...sometimes theres too many customers at the same time...room service was excellent... size of my room...no sofa...appart from that all was amazing...
The hotel is quite old fashion, not renewed, not always clean. Rooms are small and essential.
The food was first class and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was good for the beach. The hotel was a long walk from the old town which may not suit all, and the choice of restaurants locally was limited
the best part of our stay was the polite staff and location of the hotel. However we wrer very disappointed with the cost oft our stay as we felt due to our very late arrival on Tuesday 26th October we felf we should have got some compensation/ treat or even a discount on the total price. there was no kettle/ tea making facilities for the us in our bedroom, that touch would have been great.
The pillows and the bed were very comfortable. Climate control -- the air conditioning was off and not centralized to each room, it was quite warm (and stuffy) in the hotel and my room.
The decor, room lighting, comfortable bed, plentiful seating, friendly and helpful staff, free Wi-Fi, cleanliness, rooftop deck, location. Our visit coincided with a festival which caused the price of our second night to more than double.
Well placed, new, clean, very nice staff. A bit too modern for me. I just dont like the the hotel is furnitured, painted.
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.
location, facilities, room, staff.
Love that it was close to the beach and great restaurants. The lounge was ok
district,near a big center,subway. a lazy personal.
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
quietness, open wiew, close to the sea the area nothing special (mainly under construction)
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.
nice room and bathroom no coffee in hotel room
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 is perfect, the hotel is good. I would stay there again.
the rooms were clean and we loved swimmingin the pool
Very nice location, nice hotel, good breakfast
breakfast, room, location, cleaniness
The location of the hotel is perfect to visit the city We were given a smoker´s room when our choice was non-smoker. It was disgusting because of the smell in the room and also to be sorrunded by ashtrays all over the place
Location, luxury room, service They increased the fare almost double due to a soccer game. Does not include breakfast
Location is superb. Walking distance to many of the tourist sights and shopping area. Easy access to metro and buses, and taxi stand is right at the corner. Spacious and Clean Room. Staffs are willing to help. Tapa bars nearby are also nice.
Excellent location. Refurbished hotel with all amenities. Very clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay there again. Hotel restaurant could have better dinner menu. Very limited. Did not have breakfast there.
ideal location, just one block away from playa de catalunya. Nice modern hotel
the location is very good the standard room little bit small , the room servise took my personal towel and i ask for it but they didn't return it back !!
the location of this hotel was excellent,the veiws from the roof top pool where breath taking.all staff where very helpfull. a great base to enjoy barcelona will book again when we return. the price for breakfast most guests we found eat out.
The hotel is very well situated, right above the Plaza de Catalunia, away from the noise of the Rambla but still just a few minutes walk. The neighbourhood is very beautiful, good restaurants in the street as well as some amazing artwork in the street. The hotel room was very nice, even better than on the photos on the website. Beautifully decorated and the beds were comfortable. We had a great view from our windows and the view from the 11th floor, where the swimming pool is, was amazing. Though the hotel isn´t very cheap it was worth every penny! The air condition could have been a litle bit cooler.
The view from the room as well as service in the lobby and the staff at reception The spa as guests should be offered sauna/jacuzzi and pool for free of charge as well sometimes room service took too long and I expected the service to be a bit more personalised
A very funky & cool hotel in a great location with amazing views.
Almost everything was great. The view is just amazing. The staff is very helpful and welcoming. Very cool and relaxing atmosphere. The breakfast buffet does not have many varieties. The Jacuzzi in the spa was not kept warm for client's use.
Absolutely everything, the hotel was fantastic we thoroughly enjoyed our stay-we will be back!
The staff especially at reception were extremely friendly and helpful. wonderful bar on the top floor and lovely large rooms not sure about the loos in a glass box in the rooms. not very private!
Fantastic location, great view from our suite..Very nice design in the hotel, brand new facilities. Very good food in the hotel's restaurant Wave, friendly staff. Dissapointed by the quality of drinks in the bar Eclipse, staff was not very friendly..They should improve their service towards the people which are staying in the hotel. Too much focused on over charging. And you have to pay also for the internet, which I assume could be included in the nice price of the suite.
New, well designed, comfortable, clean, beach proximity, fitness room, views, restaurants A little pricey
nice modern hotel, have my doubts about finishings and quality of materials used. suppose this Hotel will look and feel outdated within some years. Staff is very helpfull. Some great views from the rooms and upper floor bar. Location visavis center and most attractions is bad. Too far without taxi or other means of transportation. This very much a hotel "been there, no waouw feeling, ain't coming back"
The atmosphere, the design, nothing
Firstly the location is great, you can basically walk everywhere from the W Hotel and explore Barcelona. Staff was very professionnal and helpful. Pool area was nicely design with great view of the beach and the city. The room obsiously was brand new as the hotel opened just 2 weeks ago and had all great amenities. Loved the shower.
being close to the beach and the resturants
Very central - very comfortable hotel. Really friendly, helpful staff.
the breakfast distance from downtown and unavailable help with transportation to downtown
Clean spacious rooms, clean linens. Quiet part of town. Close to the beach. Hot tub was broken for the entire five days we were there. Pool was freezing cold, and staff refused to switch on the heater... saying they never heat their pool in October for any reason. They offered no form of compensation. Be warned - if something is wrong with your stay, the staff here is NOT empowered to anything about it.
Nothing Central airconditioning, there was to warm in the room but opened windows brought too much street noise
Great location Lovely modern room Great breakfast, also had dinner there one night and really enoyed food.
Lites goes on and off by itself, toilet flashes by itself. Asked them to fix but they didn't get fixed. It was noisy from music from the bar and outside pool till late at night.
The room was clean, tidy, comfortable. The staff was pleasant and helpful. There were only few minor things which shouldn't discourage you to come and stay in this hotel. The first thing was this silly coffee machine at breakfast which didn't make nice coffee at all. If you like good tea bring your own bags :) The second was English speaking tv channels. If you don't want to watch euro news you will end up with ITV4 which, to be honest, if you are not used to it, will probably drive you mad. The last one was no kettle in the room. If you are tea addict you will probably suffer a bit :)
well located, close to town centre and beach and motorway network. Parking available. Good Value and comfortable. Unable to operate air conditioning properly,
The accommodating attitude of the staff and the excelent breakfast The cleaning of the room was fine enough, but the lack of refill of shampoo and toiletpaper was dissapointing
Clean, helpful staff, good breakfast, quiet. Beds were not comfortable.
Plesure tips The pool area was closed for all guests at the hotel due to a wedding - that not acceptable !!
Staff very helpful
good stuff. very helpful location far from city center, but very near the beach!
i enjoy the room cause it was comfortable , with very nice bathroom. Also the breakfast was very tasty with reach buffet. I didn't like that you could hear everything from the rooms next to us, (tv, footsteps, talking).
Hotel design. Bathroom is rundown, Without shower gels, an insufficient number and poor quality towels.
close to transport,clean ,goodbreakfast,good bed,spa free,reception desk old furniturerestaurant in evening with non trained waitersnot very polite in restaurant
staff was helpfull plastic glasses in the room; poor quality of baby cot
Staff fluent in a wide variety of lanuages, all spoke perfect English. The Gym facilites were pretty good. The room was quite small for a 4 star hotel. Breakfast was expensive, but it was a buffet. The pool was very small.
excellent location, 10 minutes to the nightlife places
There is nights club around and the hotel is very noisy when you are in the low level. Then the parking is very small and only small cars can enters. Outside because of the night clubs, this is difficult to park on friday and saturday night. Also, having the cleaning lady enter the room at 7h30am is not something acceptable for a 4 stars hotel I would not recommend to go to this hotel
friendly, helpful staff
The hotel is in a great location with excellent views. The staff are very helpful and attentive.
The staff at this hotel was extremely friendly and always making sure that I was enjoying my stay as much as possible. The hotel itself is beautiful and has a calm ambiance. The room was beautiful with a big bathroom. Room was also clean and well put together. Restaurants and the champagne bar at the hotel were amazing. When I go back to Barcelona I will be staying at this hotel again.
Location Very noisy tourists!
Very comfortable room with excellent shower. Excellent sound insulation (no noise from upstairs etc). No.
Took an age to check in which I do not expect in an expensive 5 star hotel. Staff indifferent. A luxury hotel that just lacks something special when it comes to service. Not good value for money. Minibar outrageously expensive and 25 euro for internet
best hotel in barcelona
overall,excellent stay.. Just an excellent top star hotel
Everythin but not the food The food but lot of ood restaurants very close
The location was perfect. Easy access to bbeach and city. Hotel staff a pleasure. Please write at least 15 words No
I didn't like that hotel ,next time I will go for another hotel for sure I didn't like staff. they wasn't polite ,friendly...and I didn't like room..
The Hotel is near the beach.
The Beach It was a littlle too far from the main city
Just about everything. The location was great. It was across the street from the beach. A short walk to the metro and mall made it convenient. The quiet neighborhood was a warm welcome after a long day of sightseeing in the city. Dinner was delicious.
view to sea was fabulous - even caught a picture perfect sunrise! refrigerator was faulty to the extent where it functioned primarily as a heater. as the temperatures were already warm (18-19C), the room was ~28C in the evening upon return. hotel staff were unable to fix or even unplug the damn thing... ocean side view marred by the noise of the freeway which was compounded by the "heating" problem indicated above. this meant that the window had to be opened periodically during the nite which was very loud.
We enjoyed the enviroment created by the staff and the quality of the services and the friendly nature, considering we did not speak Spanish The fact that we didn't speak Spanish so we could have had better conversation with the friendly staff.
The location was very nice, the hotel is clean The hair dryer was broken (physically), my card-key had to be replaced 2 times
close to the beach although we had non-smokers booked, only smokers were available; noisy rooms and A/C was not adjustable - very cold air blowing directly on the head; staff is unfriendly and unprofessional; wi-fi in the rooms is not for free
Location is perfect for us with a 2 yr old. No wifi in the room. Wifi only available in the lobby area. No A/C in the hotel during mt state due to approaching winter. Room facing east are very noisy and hot during the day.
The view, the comfort, size and cleanliness of the room No pool
Good location, near the sea and the city. Not good for a 4 stars hotel. Rooms are small, and the desk staff is not very helpful.
Optimal for a good night's sleep (dark and soundproof). Good bathroom with all necessary supplies (soaps to excellent hairdryer and very good shower.
location, clean room, lovely bathroom, nice breakfast
Great large beds if you choose King size room and great to have the swimming pool open even in November! Staff are helpful and friendly and you cannot fault the room. The buffet breakfast at €25 is wickedly expensive and the continental option outside the buffet is not exactly cheap but more bearable at €12. I would be fantastic to have the roof-top swimming pool open earlier than 9.00am. 8.00am would be ideal for us early risers.
I liked it's ambiance and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The food was also very good. Nothing
location and style
The view from the roof top swimming pool is outstanding.
Hotel was extremely good with professional attentative staff
Room quality and cleanliness Breakfast buffet Extremely helpful staff
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast that was included was very good fresh and great variety. The location was good as it was walking distance to beach and shopping. The hotel was mean to be 5 star but had no gym or spa. The bed was uncomfortable so i think the price i paid was too much!
Perfect location to beach and city attractions. Cool rooftop pool, delicious breakfast, clean, nice rooms. All good.
Friendly welcome from courteous, smart and knowlegeable employees. Room guide for TV did not match channels or services available. Worked it out in the end but some may find that irritating.
Very cclean room No kettle in room. No hot water for shower on the last day.
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 middle garden or terrace is really nice for chillout Hotel provides a free bike room size are quite spacious Rooms looking at the garden has amazing view in the day time Staff at reception are vey helpful Breakfast selection is very limited and its not hygienically taken care of Some of the catering staff are really rude and some and very kind and helpful The TV selection is extremely bad, so don't even think of setting in your room
the location and the free wi-fi computers in the rooms were super.
The location was fantastic.
Modern, relaxed hotel, easy access to the Ramblas and other tourist attractions.
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 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 location of the hotel was second to none. There were signs for a Bar but couldn't find one.
Garden, location rooms and cafeteria are not clean enogh
simple and clean decoration I did not like. The hotel is too dark
the room was excellent, the pool view is brilliant and restaurant food was really really good.
Found the location good accommodation was good and value for money was excellent would be happy to visit Barcelona and stay at this hotel very handy for the sea and beach access good transport links
Leisure facilies, excellent service
Loved rooftop pool with its great views over the city and the sea. A little too far from the city centre.
free minibar, pool and gym were amazing
rooms and easy access to transport
The hotel was close to public transportation with a shopping mall across the street that had a lot of restaurants. At night, the room was very hot and stuffy. The hotel staff had already turned on the heat for winter, and the temperature outside didn't justify the heater. Room was very stuffy and hot. The staff offered a fan but then couldn't find one and would not consider doing anything else to alleviate the problem.
the view from the pool sauna too far away from pool, bar could be much nicer
My room was in front of the beach so I had a great view and everything was in silence. The Internet conextion.
View from the 13th floor (swimming pool area) was breathtaking. To bad the bar was closed. Bar at the pool was closed and the pool area was dark (no lights were switched on).
friendly staff and very clean and tidy rooms. central location near to metro very basic facilities. no bar
The hotel was great - spacious, clean & friendly. It wasn't central - you had to get the tube.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Decor colors and style is reminiscent of a cheap disco. Bad smell in the rooms. Very expensive per night with no complimentary breakfast. Would not recommend to anyone.
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 clean The pool was very small and was out of action. I found the hotel too clinical for my taste.
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
Very new and modern. Rooms clean and spacious. Free wifi and free water was a nice touch.
The staff is very helpful, friendly and polite. Just very nice!
It was in the city limits
Cleanliness and feel of the hotel No
the hotel was close to the metro station and well decorated. the breakfest was good, rich and tasty.
Good clean hotel in a very useful location.Considering its locality to the city centre the hotel was also very quiet. I have no bad comments about this hotel. Very good place to stay
nice personnel, location The only english channel was BBC.
Hotel was clean and staff was friendly. Difficult to park our vehicle as the space was limited. Could not get just a cup of coffee in the restaurant without buying the continental breakfast.
Kindness of the staff and location
no way to open a window to the room, free wireless wasn't working, it's not even configured correctly (the staff indicated it was best to hop onto another "open" wireless network in the vicinity), hot water wasn't working one morning, jacuzzi working but water not hot.
Amongst many good tihngs, the hote staff is very friendly and polite. When we have another chance to visit Barcelona, we would choose this hotel again.
Location is very good for shopping and transportation No room privacy due to the Hotel design
spacious, clean room, comfortable bed, nice decoration and view from the top rooms through the huge windows I think glassy bathroom is not a good idea at all.
very well no
the room pool and sundeck to small
large spacious room, great breakfast buffet, friendly wait staff. internet access: this was very poor. only 2 computers were available and the internet service was very slow. One the computers had broken keys on it. I hate lap top computer keyboard, you need to replace them with desktop monitors. later on in the night, only 1 computer was available, 1 had been taken away
The location. Near the metro and the tourist bus stop. Shopping mall 50 meters away. Noise from water dripping on window sill when it rains.
Array of cured meats and smoked salmon every morning. Friendly staff. Really bad wifi. Worse than the free wifi you get in airports. Connection would drop out periodically, and when it was working it was slow.
breakfest annoyed hotel staff
breakfast size of the room
design of hotel the rooms were not clean enough ( we used same sheets for a few days) .carpets are smelling.
convenient for shoping bathroom without curtain
Staff competent. Views excellent. Bed was nice. Not a 5 star anymore. Way past it's prime. Was probably hip in its day but carpet dirty, paint dingy, floor leading to Sky Bar and restaurant was linoleum and all bubbled up and needed replaced. Room is very small and cheaply made. Bathroom sink was reprinted and peeling off. Shower was paultry and leaked onto bathroom floor. Carpark extremely smelly and not well lit. Costs 27.50 euros overnight!!! Supposed exclusive checkin on 25th floor is in same room as concierge suite among everyone drinking and eating. Not very attractive or professional upon arrival. Quite frankly ground floor checkin and bar area is far nicer.
