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 of the hotel was second to none. There were signs for a Bar but couldn't find one.
The location was fantastic.
Very cclean room No kettle in room. No hot water for shower on the last day.
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 and the free wi-fi computers in the rooms were super.
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 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 was ideal for access to the metro (within 50m), restaurants, bars and tourists sites. None, everything as expected.
Garden, location rooms and cafeteria are not clean enogh
Location is excellent.
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
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.
good location overprice, poor room facilities, room was cleansed poorly
clean room . the hotel has a great location. we had to pay for a connection for electric.
location and cleanliness of the room
location is perfect the rooms are small but comfortable enough
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)
great location but bathroom is old, emitting sewer smell
Very central but quiet
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, quality of rooms
Excellent location on a very quiet street, excellent beds, warm room
Not far from Metro Very expensive breakfast. Euro 20
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.
perfect location to explore central Barcelona, but very quiet for a good nights rest the bar was shut for a few weeks!
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.
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 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 of the hotel is excellent Employees collaborators Recommend to live in Close to everything Nothing
quite efficient and the location overpriced
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.
Very attractive throughout and huge room
the location of this hotel is the best in Barcelona.
Location on La Rambla. The surprising additional charge for my 8 year-old son.
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 !!
The freindly atmosphere and good service limited dining facility choice
good location no tea & coffee making facilities had to pay wxtra for safe when it was one of the features mentioned
The location unnecessary noise (e.g. from electricity)
Location and price was good.
the location the price of the room and of the breakfast
Ease of access to the Ramblas and the city. N / A
The central location is the hotels best feature.
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.
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 .
Wonderful location, friendly staff, clean rooms.
The Receptionist The enlargment mirror in the bathroom did not work and no blanket on the bed
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.
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.
The price, excellent location and very friendly and helpful reception staff. Rooms can be a bit noisy as no carpets in rooms or corridors.
The location The cleaniness, breakfast too crowded
pleasant staff, location in the city center, good breakfast incl in price for room cleanliness of the room, esp. bathroom
good location, just of La Ramba, well lit area.
Good location,nice staff,clean&well equipped room,
Location was convenient Staff for the most part was either rude or uninformed
Helpful staff, basic accommodation but well priced breakfast buffet
The Location Nothing
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
Staff is very friendly and efficient, especially the restaurant manager. Room was clean and comfortable, good beddings is the most important thing in a hotel, and it iw good here. The 360 view on the city is extremely enjoyable, exceptional. 360 bar closing at 23:30 when it is written 12. Room service not available during the night, that is not up to a good 4 stars. Maybe one or two more staff to hire could be better.
Value for money
The hotel was absolutely fabulous, there were 8 in our group and all of us had a wondeful time. The staff were exceptionally helpful which was great when trying to book a table in good restaurants for 8 people at short notice. Cannot fault the hotel in anyway - great location - we walked everywhere and saw most of Barcelona over a long weekend.
Everything. Particularly the decor and coffee machine. Would have prefered croisant or something in the breakfast box.
Location, Terrace, comfort of room
very imnteresting design, I have never seen anything like this before it was rather cold this days and the swimming pool was only outdoor...
Beautiful rooms, great location, rooftop panorama, loved this hotel and would stay again in a heartbeat.
Very good hotel. Staff pleasant compared to other people who served us during our trip to Barcelona. We found the hotel to be exceptionally clean and the room very comfortable. Enjoyed the breakfast and the panoramic rooftop bar!!!!! I was not keen on the location - although excellent for accessing everything in Barcelona it felt a bit scary at night walking out. But would still go back - just get taxi's when returning to our hotel at night. You can see the area is being improved though (police presence).
Nice design hotel not far from the city centre. Very friendly staff, fair prices and great breakfast. -
Great central location. Clean, bright and very modern. Reception staff very, very slow when leaving
This hotel is very interesting for those, who are interested in modern architecture and design.The hotel interior is thought over to the smallest details. The district Raval is horrific. Whole the day around the hotel are walking suspicious persons
Good, albeit expensive menu. Our waiter on Thursday evening was very good as was the bar man. Dark room, enclosed balcony, very expensive room service, huge TV but only CNN and Eurosport in English - plenty of spanish and German programs. Waiter who poured the dregs of the wine stright into my glass
The location was ideal for a weekend trip.
The location, the atmosphere inside and out,the staff,the size of room, the rain shower,
Very stylish and romantic hotel - ideal for our wedding anniversary
Fantastic room, great service, excellent location!
Location, decoration Some Neri Rooms are very small, heating didn't work in one of them. When we moved to a junior suite, everything was different.
Helpfull and pleasant staff, good restaurant and a fine location for Old city and Los Ramblos
Front desk, restaurant & bar staff all very friendly & helpful. Beautiful lunch in the restaurant. Wonderful location - would recommend highly.
Unique, beautiful building with fabulous rooms and interior design. The staff was exceptionally charming and helpful. They provided us with great restaurant recommendations as well. The only issue is that the hotel is situated next to a school with noisy children playing outside parts of the day. This may affect some people (like me) who must work in the rooms. But the children's voices and laughter were infinitely more pleasant than hearing a TV set :)
interior design central location but unsafe at night
The beauty and innovation of this redesigned enormous building in the heart of the Main Street in Barcelona is unbelievable. Walking in to the lobby from Las Ramblas was breathtaking in chic comfortable design and comfort; quite the turnaround from walking through the gothic quarter. The rooms with their automated switches, built in audio and mood lighting, and details such as a custom pillow bar to select from added to the already striking rooms and beautiful bathrooms. Everything in the rooms made a nights stay in the town more difficult to actually go to town. Past the rooms and lobby, the dining and bar was great, not even considering the rooftop restaurant with a pool and lounge area also for guests. Did I Mention the Romanesque bath spa downstairs? Not a bad feature for a beautiful place to be able to check out, do more sightseeing, and then come back to relax in before grabbing bags. The staff was beyond friendly. Thank you to the doormen for keeping our luggage and even holding the rental bikes while that stores staff was on siesta. I will be back. I was too blown away to even think anything pessimistic.
an excellent hotel, very central but quiet, well appointed rooms and good facilities. helpful staff.
Atmosphere, Comfort, cleanliness, facilities, spa, location and descent manners and service standard
The helpfulness of the front desk staff. The PCs in the Business Center did not function well.
Central position nothing
location was perfect bar very quiet could have done with a little music
very good and i recommand that for all no
Great location. Spa and gym was very nice. Breakfast was great and was included in my rate. The temperature control was hidden. Wish breakfast at the terrace was open earlier.
Ideal location. Feeling of security - plenty of staff about.
loved the indoor pool and spa! It was the primary reason for my stay
Loved it all! Fab hotel
Convenience of location. Nice staff. Nice lobby. The bathroom set up not convenient. Had to go to the bar anytime needed ice, no ice machine or anyone to bring it to room. No tissue or clock in room. Not many outlets.
The room was very modern, big enough and clean. Everything is new and good in quality. Very good sound isolation from the outside but not from inside. There is a lot of noise from other rooms and hallway.
Great staff and you can't beat the location. The standard rooms are quite small, just big enough for a bed and two bedside tables. However, they are sufficient comfortable for sleeping. My biggest complaint is the noise from the hallway. The walls are paper thin! You will hear everything in the hall, from someone walking by with flip flops to the late night party goers returning. Therefore, expect to have your sleep interrupted throughout the night.
The location of Hotel Espana is fantastic. Located just off of La Rambla you are only a minute's walk away, the marina is only 10 mins and there are plenty of restaurants near by. The design of the hotel was pretty good, mixing very modern in with the old. While renovation is still being carried out during the day there was a little noise and some areas of the hotel are still covered in paper and tape to protect areas. The rooms where a little dusty but we understood that this is from the renovation and not because they haven't been cleaned. I would recommend wiping the inside of the cupboard down before putting your clothes in. We got a good deal on this hotel booking it last minute so for the price we paid it was pretty damn good.
The look was absolutely stunning no complaint
The location was more then perfect and the hotel is really beautiful. Often we saw people stopping outside to look in. Staff was extremely helpful, kind and spoke perfect English. Our first room was too small and only window to open was with a view of the renovation going on in the hotel and this was a smoker room which we wanted from start but I could not breathe in there because of dust and then this little window. We got another room with no problems to the street with a balcony. The room was pretty, stylish and bathroom as well. Only minus is really the amount of dust and white dust from renovation, the room was covered in it so if you laid your arm somewhere you had it on your clothes. But we just did not wanna "complain" again so balcony door was always open. I even had to clean the toilet before we could use it. but we would definitely come back if no renovation of hotel was going on
The Hotel's excellent location so close to La Rambla was perfect for our short city break.
It is very central. I slept like a log as the blackout curtains totally blocked the sun light and the double glazing was really soundproof. Although, we were in Las Ramblas pedestrian walk I could not hear a thing. I also liked the mattress a lot. I think they could have offered us bathrobes and slippers. I can do without bathrobes but not without slippers as I had to walk barefoot in the bathroom.
Hotel is not even close to 4 stars standard. Should be classified as 3 stars
everything the room was fabulous!!!staff were really helpful!!!we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be recommending it to people and definitly will be returning no !!could not fault a thing
Location! Breakfast not included.
The proximity to the Liceum
The hotel was close to the main street La Rambla. The room was decorated with a modern design. My room came with a terrace, which was nice to relax on it. The hotel staff were quite helpful and pleasant. The Concierge gave an excellent restaurant recommendation, which was the highlight of my trip. In the hotel lounge near the reception area, the hotel offered a business center and complimentary items for 24 hours access. The item were coffee, tea, bottled water and apples. This was nice to come to in evening to enjoy a cup of tea or bottled water before going to bed. The rooms were decorated in modern design. My room was comfortable, reasonable size and came with a terrace. Overall, I was quite pleased with my stay. There is very little I didn't like. The sinks in the bathroom drain slowly. During my stay, there was a power outage for a short duration.
Free refreshments and lounge area. It meant that we could enjoy our break without having to plan ahead to buy bottled water for our room. It was also nice to relax there. It was also really helpful to be able to store our luggage after we checked out. We were able to enjoy the last day of our trip without having to carry our bags. The only thing we didn't like was there were no mirrors in the bedroom. Only in our bathroom.
Casual and clean. Loved the design. The coffee room and free water is such a great idea. It was great to relax before and after in this room. The staff were extremely helpful.
Centrally located, great rooms. Very trendy.
Nice hotel, good location, but not what is expected from 4 star hotel, just a nice place to sleep
spotless and excellent location
Helpful staff. Stylish modern rooms. Free coffee & water. Large airey & comfortable lounge Room rather noisy as next to housekeeping area. No tea making facilities in room.
