Best location in the heart of Barcelona. Hotel is on the third floor of an old, multi-use building. Small, homey hotel with a helpful, multi-lingual staff. The room was really small and basic but neat and clean. Comfortable double bed. Nice shower. Small, old TV. Free WiFi. The only window opened on an air shaft.

The location is excellent! For first timer in Barcelona and don't speak Spanish, the location at plaza catalunya is right where the airport bus drops off at its' final stop. It is also where one can board the hop on/ off bus to tour. Which we did. Hector sends us an email to give clear instructions to find the hotel.... More

Hi Tan and family! We also enjoyed your visit. Just one bit of information for anybody interested in staying with us. Perhaps because of its size (ten rooms) and probably our personable approach and attention for detail, some clients call Hotel Ginebra a Bed and Breakfast. But it really is a hotel, so we have 24 hour reception and any... More

Great location,friendly and helpful staff! Our room was clean and spacious(perhaps because they put us in a triple instead of a single, but bed was extremely comfortable, and the bathroom was deluxe by most European standards.

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights in May and although it is a fantastic location we weren't very happy with this Hotel.

Hi and great to hear from you again, Please allow us to explain something to the general public: we have three different roomtypes: rooms with private bathroom (no view), rooms with private bathroom and city view, and finally budget rooms with private bathrooms. Obviously there is a price difference. The room that you had booked was the budget room with... More

I stayed here for four nights and thought it was superb. The reception staff were so friendly and efficient, they really couldn't do enough for you. They even held my luggage for me in secure storage on my last day, at no extra cost, giving me plenty more time to explore this amazing city before having to catch the flight... More

The Hotel Ginebra was ideal - located right on the Placa de Catalunia in the middle of Barcelona. Upon arrival, Yvonne greeted us, let us know about some great places to eat and see, and even welcomed us with cava and beer. Our room overlooked the square, and even had a balcony where we enjoyed cocktails each evening. The breakfast... More

HI again! Thank you for pointing out the difference between rooms with a view and rooms without. In order to get a view, one needs to select the correct roomtype, as NOT ALL ROOMS HAVE views. Tks for allowing us to expalin that here. All the staff Hotel Ginebra Barcelona More

Location is fantastic, right at Catalunya Square, everything is within walking distance. Lots of restaurants in the area, metro is just downstairs. Las Ramblas is just 5 mins walk away. Branded shopping also a mere 5-10 mins walk. Airport bus boarding and alight right at the square. The room is small but very clean with everything you need in there.... More

The best thing of the hotel is without a doubt the incredibly location, on the Plaza Catalunya. Basicly Plaza Catalunya is the central square of the city, so it is close to just about everything. For example just one minute from the famous strip La Ramblas. On a previous visit to Barcelona i had stayed in a hotel on La... More
