Location is great and room was fine, if tiny. But bedding was shabby and full of holes, reception staff unhelpful. There was a long power outage in the evening during which I got no information, and reception wouldn't even pick up the phone. And can't believe they still charge for wifi! The most annoying thing is I didn't even book... More

Stayed here twice within a week. Same nice welcome and service at both occasions. From here central Barcelona is within walking distance. Obviously a popular hotel as the breakfast hall was crowded, but food was varied and OK. The building is complicated with stairs and narrow halls, but we soon learned to find our ways. A little old fashioned rooms,... More

The room faced a small court and there were no bars on the window so we couldn’t open it. There were no bar... More

The front desk was very helpful and the twin room was spotless. If breakfast isn't part of your package you can get coffee and pastry in the quaint bar for 1.90 Euro. Convenient location just up the street from the Las Ramblas and walking distance to port or Pl Cataluyna where the etro is and aerobus for airport and tour... More

As others have commented, the location really is the thing with this'd hotel - right in the old Gothic area. Our room - 225- was very clean and spacious, staff were helpful when approached, breakfasts excellent, loads of it and loads of choice. The eating area gets busy and noisy, but there was ample space. I found it much quieter... More

The reviews may have lowered my expectations but I was delighted with the location and the twin room was great. Breakfast was ok, coffee great so made up for sad bacon. Good variety so I will choose to fruit and cereal tomorrow. The staff were and little underwhelming- it was Barcelona's major Merce Festival and they seemed to know nothing... More

Stayed at the Rialto several times. Perfect situated, everything in easy reach and the La Rambla only a few steps from the hotel. It is a city and therefor rooms can be quite small. Our rooms has always been clean. But I think that they should considder to invest in their rooms in the future. The breakfst was typical continental... More
