I stayed here one night in July 2014 and it was good. The location is right next to the Sant Jaume square and near metro station "Jaume I". The room was quite small, I expected it to be bigger because it's a 4* hotel. The furniture is not modern but I don't care so much about it as long as... More

We stayed at the Gran Hotel Barcino for a week late July 2014, we had originally booked to stay at the hotel Del Mar through Expedia but on arrival were told we would be staying at the Barcino and that it was a 4 star hotel! The hotel was in a great location easy walking distance to both les Rambles... More

One of the worst hotels !!! The hotel is not a 4 star hotel, if flattering (because of the location )I rate it as 2 stars. The rooms are very low level, maintenance and cleaning are not good enough. If you get an external room on a lower floor you can not sleep because of the noise from the street.... More

Unfortunately, the only good thing I can say about this hotel is about the location, which really serve tourists well. Rather then that, it is terrible! Small rooms with basic furnitures. We suffer from the heat since the air condition doesn't work well, the mattress had better times a few years ago and even shower was bad. Breakfast is the... More

As everyone has already noted, this is not a 4-star hotel. More like 2-star. The secret to dealing with this place is to get that into your head and adjust your expectations accordingly. I stayed here with my wife and daughter for 4 nights in July 2014. Before booking, we read all the reviews about this hotel and still went... More

This hotel is far below 4-star standards. Although it is well located (1min from Metro, 3min from La Rabla) and the staff is pretty helpful I don't recommend it to anyone. My room was clean but it didn't have full-size windows. I couldn't even open those 'ventilators' and look outside. Providing that the room was very dark and creepy. Air... More

Apparently the star ratings of hotels in Barcelona are vastly different from everywhere else we have been. I would say this is maybe a 2 or a 2+ at best. Front desk staff weren't very friendly, the wifi didn't work at all the 3 nights we were there, the elevator was constantly broken and we had to pay 3 Euros... More
