Syated here on a business trip at short notice, good location for my office ie near to Diagonal/L'illa, hotel is dated and the rooms are very small but clean and pleasant staff - says it has a pool and gym but tiny and don't really count. Much better deals in apartments in this area as not near main tourist areas... More

Stayed here for a weekend when a few friends and I watched Barca. Really easy to get to the camp nou even if it is a bit of a walk. Can't fault the hotel was amazing. Made breakfast one of the mornings and it was fantastic! Staff were all friendly. Thanks hotel derby!

This was a perfectly sufficient hotel. The air conditioning worked well, the room was comfy and spacious, and it was within walking distance from the train station and metro (not super close, but close enough).

We stayed in Derby for four nights. Good bed, good shower and a good location, near metro station, taxis and bus station. Due to reviews, Derby Hotel was a recommendation for us. Ok for us. No problem. No pasa nada.

The hotel is clean and in quite location, unfortunately it is not very close to city centre, I would say location is ok as it is only 2 min away from hop off hop on bus stop. The downside is a poor breakfast service at the hotel restaurant. The restaurant staff don't acknowledge you at all. You have to ask... More

The rooms are clean and the bathrooms are modern and good. The hotels location a little far from town, but 10 mins from the metro. The breakfast was a little basic, and staff we're generally unhelpful and non-attentive. It's good for a decent value hotel, but not really what you expect for 4 stars.
