We stayed here for three nights - great location. The hotel had some very recent remodeling going on, as many halllways were just painted. The only negative, was the room desperately lacked anywhere to put anything. No tables or dressers. Even the bathroom (large) had no place to put anything. The shower head was slightly dirty. We would consider using... More

I had read some terrible reviews on this hotel and began to wonder what I had let myself in for. On arrival, we were allocated a superior room, as there was some problem with an ordinary one and told we may have to change rooms the following day. We were able to keep the same room anyway. Our room was... More

Having read some of the reviews, we were a bit weary about this hotel. It turned out to be an excellent base for our three night stop. What valuables we did have (passports, cash etc) was stored in the reception safe and always available. Staff were friendly enough, but the main attraction is this hotel's location right on the bustling... More

Having read the reviews of this hotel we were very apprehensive, but it was very good. The room had been totally refurbished, modern with air conditioning. Left our valuables in the hotel safe with no extra charge! Breakfast was very good. Would stay there again.

Just come back from a 2 night stay in Barcelona.. The hotel is well positioned in La Rambla and ok for a couple of nights.. The hotel reception and premier rooms are very modern and ok, but venture to other parts of the hotel and it looks like a run down sea side guest house.. Considering that they are trying... More

This is a poor hotel. The reception area and the first 2 floors are beautiful. However should you venture above there, the hotel is of a very poor standard. We had booked a supreme room and were given a double. We complained about this and needless to say, the unhelpful reception staff did nothing for us. The room door was... More

After reading some of the horror stories in previous reviews I was dreading my stay at the Arc La Rambla however, I could never have been more surprised. On arrival at the hotel we were greeted by the very friendly staff in the elegant recently refurbished reception area. On check-in we were told that the standard rooms we had booked... More

Before staying at the hotel i read negative reviews, i was somewhat apprehensive ..however on arriving, the reception was modern and clean, the staff polite. I was impressed with the size of the room & bathroom and again, modern & clean. Admittedly we were staying at the back of the hotel and therefore didn't hear any noise. However, I would... More

The hotel was aweful, the room door a joke. We had merely arrived and left the hotel room for only one hour to have diner. When we got back, somebody had broken into our room (307) and had stolen our camera, phone, mp3 player, among other things. AVOID THIS HOTEL, even if it is the last available room in the... More
