Stayed 5 nts on Marriott points & upgraded to a bigger room with breakfast & wifi. Friendly & helpful staff, stylish decor & a very comfortable bed. Good breakfast selection with pleasant staff who worked hard to replenish supplies despite there not being many diners. Rooftop terrace is stylish & fun even at this time of year, when the bar...

The hotel, very easily confusable with Renaissance Hotel Fira (15 EUR away by taxi), is a 5* hotel with average size but nice rooms, comfortable beds. The breakfast seemed tasty although I didn't try. The hotel was very quiet and the bathroom very clean. A few blocks away from plaza Catalunya.

Was only in Barcelona for a few days ahead of boarding a cruise ship back to USA. This is a great hotel in a great location. Within walking distance to everything, and I mean everything.

My husband and I stayed at the Renaissance in Barcelona for 2 nights prior to departing on a cruise. The hotel is located close to many restaurants, shopping, and the hop on/hop off toiur buses. There were many people at the hotel who were also taking a cruise from Barcelona. I think that both NCL and Disney use this hotel... More

We came back and I could feel the heat while putting the key into our door, it was now 30 degrees in the room. We opened the... More

We stayed here for 1 night in November 2014. The rooms are very modern and well furnished with very interesting windows. The Architecture of the hotel is Interesting, being open plan. Breakfast was pricy €24,- but very good. Definately worth a stay. Close to the main attractions. Friendly staff etc.. Fitness room good.

I have been travelling to Barcelona on weekends for the last three months, looking for a place to live in the city. During all this time, I stayed in different hotels and always ended up looking for a new one each weekend... that is until I found the Renaissance in Pau Claris.

We stayed here for a few days with Marriott points. The hotel was very nice, clean, and full of friendly staff. We loved the bellhop (Dani), the Navigators, and check-in staff. The room was very quiet - we never heard any noise from neighbors or the hallway. We faced the courtyard in the back so when the window was open,... More

Although this hotel has great insulated windows, it is very noisy with the slamming of the room doors, sound of people above you on the mostly wooden floors, and noisy maids! Rooms and bathrooms are comfortable, but small. Location is excellent, staff is very nice and helpful.
