we have just returned from the above and I was surprised how much the hotel had slipped in standards from our last visit four years ago. The good points first, location is excellent just off the Rambles the maids were very helpful as well as making the rooms clean. Now for my rant the girl working in the bar needs... More

We had the misfortune of staying at this hotel twice! Because we had pre-booked and paid for two separate periods (2 nights before a cruise departing from Barcelona, and then for another night after our cruise) we were subjected to this terrible hotel twice in a 10-day period. Had we not pre-paid, we most certainly would not have returned to... More

Had stayed in another hotel the previous week in Barcelona, off La Ramblas and would return there but if at all possible avoid this hotel. In its favour we were able to book in early to our room and the location of the place. Our room was at the back, dark, small and not nice, Bed covers old and in... More

The location of this hotel is amazing! In the middle of the gothic quarter, in an area which is full of people all the time. The hotel itself is okay, the room was very small but it was perfectly cleaned. The breakfast was very simple but okay, and the service was good. To conclude, I really recommend this hotel for...

This hotel is on the far end of Levante Beach and is one of the lively areas of Benidorm. It is on a hill and I would not recommend it for people with walking difficulties. It is surrounded by very high rise hotel and apartment blocks in close proximity. I was allocated a room at the back on the first... More

Very dissapointed. The bed was uncomfortable. The walls in this hotel are paper thin.. I could hear everything going around my room. One night I was awaken by an awful, sewer like smell. Breakfast is not worth the money. With that said the Rialto is in a great location. It is a short walk away from La Rambla, the Cathedral... More

I am just going to echo everyone else's reviews really. This is a fabulous location, close to Las Ramblas, the Barri Gotic and the beach but it seems quite overpriced for what you get, namely: - chaotic check in process, which also has a very 1980s feel to it (this is a huge hotel yet they still have people's names...

Set in a great location in the middle of the Gothic quarter, close to Las Ramblas , the metro with harbour and beach a nice stroll away. Large selection at breakfast and staff very helpful. The only minus was a room without a window so didnt no what the weather was until you went for breakfast.

Located in Barri Gotic district, it's position, near Rambla and Liceu metro station, save the location. Comunication with reception is very difficult because they don't speak english very well. My single room was small, clean and located in a noisy part of the hotel. Breakfast was good, but not very diversified. Wifi is not free of charge and it's possible... More
