My wife and I spent 5 days here celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary in October. The Barcino is located in the Gotik area and is very near Cathedral Barcelona and Santa Maria Del Pi and Santa Maria Del Mar , all of which are beautiful buildings surrounded by great bars and restaurants. There are two Metro stations nearby and a... More

This is the first negative report I have written. Arrived Saturday 01 Nov 2014 and this is supposed to be a 4 star hotel well I personally wouldn't give it a 2, the rooms are small and below average, the noise from the street is horrendous due to only having single glazing. Some of the staff are v good others... More

We have just returned from an 8 days stay at the hotel. The staff were very friendly, the whole hotel very clean. We had a room on the 3rd floor, with a balcony. The room was a bit dated but again very clean and a comfy bed. Yes there was a bit of noise at night, just what I would... More

We stayed at Barcino hotel for a week on October 2014. The best thing about this hotel is the location, because it's located 5 mins walking distance to the Ramblas,and there are many shops, pubs, restaurants etc around. also close to the metro station, but we didn't use it at all. The room was a bit small, but it was... More

The hotel has wonderful neighbors, including Cathedral de Barcelona, Plaça Sant Jaume, and La Rambla. It is also convenient to metro stations, Jaume I and Liceu, which both are well-connected to other attractions in Barcelona.

After having stayed in many hotels in Spain during a seven city tour, I understand that hotel standards in Spain may not quite be equal to what they are in other countries. HOWEVER, this one is an exceptional failure. The (only) good part? The hotel is generally clean and decently appointed. The worst part? The attitude of everyone save the... More

We stayed four nights in June... No, it's not a four star hotel but I wouldn't go so low as 2 - it is more like a 3 star hotel with a comfortable room, decent breakfast and a brilliant location, which in my view is a key factor of visiting Barcelona. Some of the reviews suggest that the rooms were... More

So here's the scoop. Is it a 4 star? No freaking way. Maybe 2. Is it in a good location? Heck yeah! Is the staff unfriendly? We didn't think so. Do they go out of their way to help you? No. But when you engage them in a conversation, they are quite pleasant. The beds are hard and the room... More

The personel was always moody, the bathroom toilet had leaking problems with the sink and the bath both...and the breakfast was horible for such a rich country in goodies to eat... A dissapointing. It was quiet, though. :)
