We have been to Barcelona three times and this is absolutely the best location in the city, I highly recommend the location as it is a block walk to the main road were you can get the hop on/hop off bus, as well as walk to the famous las ramblas where there is the best fresh market offering everything from...

The Renaissance Barcelona is in a very convenient part of town. The rooms are modern and the staff is helpful. The air conditioning was the only issue we had during our stay. The room cools only when keys are placed in the slots in the room and theoretically you are present and even then blocks temperatures at a certain point,... More

Stayed at this hotel at the conclusion of my Oasis cruise (mid September), arrived at 1:00pm and had to wait until nearly 3:00 for a room on that Saturday. This hotel is obviously used by many coming in, or going out, of Barcelona on cruises. The Staff provided me with a drink while I waited for my room -- nice... More

We so enjoyed our stay here in Barcelona at the Renaissance. The staff was most helpful in several matters where we needed assistance, and always gave us service with a hospitable and positive attitude. The breakfast provided was most delicious and the room was so quiet and relaxing. This hotel and people who work for it definitely added to the... More

I stayed here for 3 nights, arriving very late on the first night. When I got to my room, I was disappointed that it was across from the elevator and facing the busy intersection just above street level. I called the desk and the night manager apologetically said he had one room left that he could show me but it... More

Stayed a night at the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is just a block away from Passeig de Gracia and a few blocks from Plaza Catalunya. The interior is smart, contemporary and calm. My room was well appointed and quiet. Bathrooms are very well appointed and spacious. There's a outdoor terrace on floor 8 which... More

We stayed here as part of our Disney cruise shore extension package, one night here the night before our cruise departure, and one night at the other Disney offering after the cruise, before our flight home. This hotel was fine, it wasn't particularly amazing, but it was clean and comfortable. Nothing really wrong with it, just not spectacular.

So nice to have a spacious room compared to our one in Madrid. The robes and slippers are a nice touch. And the television actually had English speaking channels, not that we were in the room much but needed a little news from home. The room had a nice desk area and sitting area. We were in the middle of... More

We had a city break recently in Barcelona and we chose this hotel. I genuinely reccomend it for its services and its position close to shopping are, metro station, train station. The room was very nice with an incredible terrace looking over to Sagrada Familia. The personnel is extremely helpful.
