Spent an amazing 4 nights in Barcelona at the Hotel Ginebra, the staff were very helpful from the beginning, our late arrival, until the day of our departure. The location of the hotel is brilliant, central and an excellent base to explore Barcelona from. The rooms were very comfortable, we had to change rooms and this was painless with staff... More

This hotel is perfectly situated on the corner of the main square, Place de Catalunya, with an an easy <5 minute walk to the end of La Ramblas. There is literally a metro stop directly across the street from the entrance. Finding this property is a bit of a surprise, as the hotel is located on the 3rd floor of... More

Great location, near by Plaça de Catalunã, La Rambla, La Boqueria, Aerobus stop. Very nice staff, always ready to help. We arrived earlier and they let us do the check in, as the rooms were already available. We were a group of 5 girls and we all loved our stay in Hotel Ginebra. Marvellous! We absolutely recommend it.

Had a nice airy room over looking the plaza right in the middle of everything. Was surprised at the size of the room after staying in other city center hotels. The hotel was clearly under refurbishment but other than the strong smell of paint in the hallways it wasn't a problem for us at all. We are used to staying... More

Located on Catalunya Plaza, we couldn't ask for a better location. The staff was quite friendly and helpful, including recommending really good restaurants off the beaten track. Should note that it would have been convenient to have a 2nd set of keys.

Just what I was looking for in central Barcelona, walking distance to everything; Metro, tour buses and Aéroport Express just across the square. Yes, the rooms are small but they have everything including a captivating view of activity in the Placa Catalunya. The manager and staff are very helpful and the simple breakfast ideal. I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Our 4th trip to Spain-not inexperienced travlers. A hostel Poorly run, staff has no authority and the "management" is not available. We were overcharged;the management has gone on "Holiday". Stay away!

Ginebra H, Front Office Manager at Hotel Ginebra, responded to this review

Thank you for your review, but not constructive. The only thing you have commented is that you did not like it and that you were overcharged, which is not true. Everybody has to pay the tourist tax of the city of Barcelona(75 cents per person per night!) , on arrival. We wish you a good next holiday anyway. More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
