This hotel is very well located, not only you can walk to bars/restaurants and shops, you can also walk to some of the main areas of interest of the city. And by car it's not far from anywhere. Plus, you do get the Renaissance/Marriott standards of hotel accommodations and services.

Great location. Very close to bars, restraunts, shops, etc.... The staff is friendly and most speak English. They have a really nice roof top bar that overlooks the city that is perfect to meet up with friends or colleagues. The rooms are beautiful and the beds are super comfortable. The downstairs bar is also nice and they have a lot... More

We enjoyed our stay at this clean and well-located hotel. The room was modern and comfortable. I like the fact that it had hardwood floors with an area rug under the bed instead of wall-to-wall carpeting. The lobby area has inviting, comfortable seating with various nooks for private conversations. A bonus was the 8th floor terrace where were relaxed in... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during a tour of Spain. The hotel is in an excellent location - a short walk from high-end shopping and many of Barcelona's main attractions. The hotel staff provided excellent service and gave good suggestions for meals and activities. The room was spacious and clean and had a wonderful view of... More

The conference facilities are good and the staff are extremely helpful. Diego was fantastic with our requests in the most recent visit. We will be using the hotel again in 2015. The hotel... More

We have stayed in many Marriott hotels throughout Europe and while most are very nice, this was one of the worst. The outside is unattractive. The rooms were small and the first room they put us in was not clean. We booked a "romance" package. I had to inquire 3 times for our bottle of Cava and it finally arrived... More

When considering a hotel in Barcelona we wanted to avoid staying the La Rambla area because of the noise level and high pedestrian foot traffic written about by other visitors to Barcelona. We booked with the Marriott Renaissance Hotel because of its proximity to La Rambla and the historical area of the city. This Renaissance is not a historical hotel... More

We stayed here for 1 night. And I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms where good size for the price. And the admenities where great. The location is great, one block of Passeo de Garcia. Yet you pay half of the similar hotels there. Breakfast was up to normal Marriott standards. And I enjoyed my salmon and eggs. I would stay... More

Location very close to important places you need to visit in Barcelona. Walking distance to La Rambla, Port etc. If you like shopping, view steps to Passeo de Gracia (with big Zara, El Corte etc). Good service, well equiped rooms and really good breakfast.
