The Renassiance hotel was perfect for our stay in Barcelona. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The hotel location is very central and in walking distance of many of the attractions, and very close to the Metro where we were easily able to get to Camp Nou. The best part about the hotel was the very comfy beds and... More

I stayed here with my film crew for 4 days and was not really thrilled. Let´s first talk about the good things: Spacious room and bathroom (great shower with high water pressure and I liked the bath care line from Tokio milk) and excellent bed quality in which you could sleep brilliantly - especially after a long day of working....

We only stay in Marriott Hotels, if possible and I thought this one was a better location than the other in Barcelona. And...I was right. Very close to many attractions and we walked to Las Ramblas from the hotel on our first day there. We stay with Marriott points and were upgraded to a lovely suite. Great bed...as always in... More

This hotel has only recently become a Renaissance and was previously the AC Diplomatic. They have invested a lot in the public areas (which are nice) and they have made some superficial updates in the bedrooms but some of the furniture in our room was in very poor condition (a very badly damaged sofa). The beds were wonderful and we... More

We stayed on Reward points and in advance, had asked for an upgrade, if possible. From the moment we checked in, (both rooms upgraded), our experience at Renaissance Barcelona was fantastic! Location can't be beat; 18 min walk to Sagrada Familia, 18 min walk to Picasso museum, 3 min walk to Casa Batllo, 3 min walk to Tapas 24 and... More

We visited here a few years ago, so I will keep my comments brief knowing that other people have more current information to share. The location of this hotel is ideal for seeing Gaudi's works as well as wandering through the city. This is a high priority for us since we travel with our four kids. We enjoyed our stay... More

Hotel is very well located, a block away from Paseo de Gracia and the better shops and restaurants. That is where the 'good' ends and the mediocre or bad sets in. Decor is modern and hype, reminds me of a W hotel inclusive of the constant techno beat in the lobby. Rooms are extremely small, our queen sized bed was... More

Stayed for 5 nights using Marriott Rewards points, and since this is considered a category 7 hotel, it takes 140,000 points for 4 nights with the 5th "free". Husband is lifetime platinum, but because the hotel was sold out for at least one of the nights of our stay, we were not upgraded to a larger room. Ours was a... More

The staff is the highlight of this perfectly nice hotel that is an excellent mid-range hotel nicely situated. The lobby is 1960's modernist cool (if not a bit cold) that is warmed up by the staff of Navigators who ensure a very pleasant stay. The reception, concierge and lobby bar staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. I stayed on... More
