The double rooms had good views of the Avenue, we're very clean and comfortable. The TV was big enough, with the option to change the language of... More

Hotel is not so far from metro stations. Good breakfasts, very helpful staff. If you put "Don´t disturb" sign, you are really not disturbed even because of cleaning (that is what I really appreciate). Nice bathroom with a tub.

I needed to be near the design museum for a week long conference. This was less than 10 minutes walk even when the pedestrian crossings made me wait. Handy for both the Glories and Monumental metro stations. Rooms were small but clean. Bed was comfy. Not as many English satellite channels as I had been led to believe, but it... More

The hotel was good. Location was a bit remote. Internet and satellite channels were good. There was a shopping mall in 10-12 mins walking distance. The metro was near the shopping mall. There were no good restaurants nearby. The beach was about 30-40 mins walk from the hotel. The major attractions of Barcelona is quite far away from the hotel.... More

I had read good reviews which is why I chose Glories for my daughter's 21st birthday break to Barcelona. The staff were super helpful but there was only one member of staff in the Lobby which meant a slight delay at reception when they were serving at the bar. The breakfast was good with a good selection. The room was... More
