Great Location La Rambla Upscale”

Great central location just off La Rambla. Our room was quiet for 4 nights. 5th night had some barking dogs and the kids (we’re 50+) in the hostel behind got a little noisy, but was short lived. King bed was awesome. Smallish room but ok. Only a couple English TV channel, but who’s there to watch TV!? Front desk staff were friendly, helpful; one helped us reserve 2 excursions by making the reservation and printing vouchers/tickets. Breakfast buffet was quite good but not exceptional. We took it only 1 day ($$) since cost was not in our room rate and lots of food in nearby market and bars. They held luggage no cost prior to our room being ready. Don’t expect early check in. It is a beautiful hotel, ornate. We did not go to roof top bar/pool. The lobby bar was never open. But no shortage of nearby bars. Taxis can come down the narrow street to the front door. Bathroom was good size and clean. Outlets are “Schuko” 220v (not North American style). Free Wifi decent speed.

Perfect Location, but balcony rooms are noisy”

Hotel was great, service and staff were excellent, but our third floor balcony room, facing Carrer de Sant Pau, was very noisy, due to the acoustics of the narrow streets. Even the normal conversations on the street below were amplified and came through the single pane glass doors. It is not an overly busy street, but with foot traffic until 3am and store deliveries starting as early a 6am, sleeping is difficult (earplugs would probably help), but the hotel's La Rambla location is excellent, with easy access to the Metro (Liceu Station only 150m away).

Would do again”

First time in Barcelona and didn't know what to expect. However, I did stay in two different hotel including this one. So my comment will be more of a comparison between the two and what I see around the area. This is great value for the money. It's is not a run down place. However, you do see signs of wear and tear if you look close enough. It looks modern...both in the lobby and in the room. The room is a little small for what I'm used to but this appears to be typical (as I paid extra to get the biggest room there is in another hotel and that room wasn't much bigger). It resides in the middle of a stretch of a busy/main street so you can walk to most places like tourist sites, shopping, bus terminal, dock.

We had very enjoyable stay. The hotel is situated very close to Las Ramblas. The deluxe room was small. No space for a second suitcase. Shower leaked over the bathroom floor. Toilet roll holder was broken. Wardrobe sliding door poorly fitted. Kept on jamming . Mentioned this to the reception, needless to say nothing was done.
