As many previous reviewers have stated, the location of the Renaissance is perfect -- on a quiet street and easy access to most of the sights in Barcelona. The hotel is modern and is very well kept. We enjoyed the staff at the hotel. The concierge was very helpful and provided good advice on restaurants and attractions to see. The... More

All you have to do is read the reviews under 'Poor' to understand an experience staying at this hotel. We experienced each during 24 hours at the hotel. We felt so insulted that we checked out 2 days early and found a wonderful boutique hotel which was incredible! Thanks to the staff at the Renassaince for helping us find the... More

We stayed here for 8 days. The personnel were extraordinary. Front desk concierge, restaurant, were always smiling, very helpful and went the extra mile to help us with directions, suggestions and assistance. I would highly recommend this hotel and will return!

Friendly staff, great location, clean rooms, delicious buffet breakfast. We had a wonderful stay in Barcelona in this hotel. Easy access to great shopping, restaurants, and attractions. Easy to get a cab if needed. Area is safe and we will definitely return if able. Housekeeping brought extra towels as needed. Overall Great! But, wi if a bit slow.

I picked Renaissance in Barcelona based on the hotel pictures and the fact that I had some points I could use (although paid for most of the bill, so my review has nothing to do with the cost). The hotel is very bright and situated in the heart of the city. Within a 2 block walking distance (2 minutes) you... More

Wow - we stayed here for my girlfriends birthday - and after making the hotel aware, we were given the top suite with terrace overlooking the city. This hotel is centrally located, stylish and immaculately clean. If you are looking for a modern hotel which is right in the hub of activity, I couldn't recommend it any more. Thanks

For somewhere to sling your bag, shower, sleep and eat breakfast this hotel is great. We stayed for three nights and found the location great, just off the noise. However accessible to all activities and places of interest (2 mins to the open top bus!) Would go back, but not for the facilities particularly

The Renaissance Barcelona is a lovely property, located just off the busy, Fifth Avenue of Barcelona. Close access to the metro, dining and shopping. The hotel itself is stylish, comfortable, and has a great staff. They were genuinely concerned that I have a lovely stay. Comfortable beds, to be expected of a Renaissance, excellent wireless, and nice bath amenities, too.

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.
