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

We have chosen Glories few years ago, when we were traveling on a limited budget and it's been a good choice for that. We liked the friendly staff, the cleanliness and comfortableness of the room, and the breakfast (large variety to choose from, good choices to make). We also liked it is very close to a metro station, and some... More

Very good location only 5 mins walk from the metro. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable - all in all good value. On the down side we booked a taxi at reception to take us to the airport (our flight was at 6.15am) and were told it would cost around €30 - €35 however when it arrived the driver... More

The Hotel Glories is a modest hotel, quite close to La Sagrada Familia. It's about 25 mins steady walk to the beach/marina and similar to the main shopping areas, including Las Ramblas. So, as a base it's in a decent position and a quiet area at night. The first night was poor in that we were given a bedroom at... More
