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

Well, for the start I really dont know how this hotel has 4 stars ****. I stayed for a weekend here in july and compare to other hotels with 4 stars does not compare at all.For example I always had problems with my key-card for my room, the noise from the street was unbearable all the time, but the biggest...

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

I have stayed at hotels all over Europe, anywhere between 1 and 4 stars. This hotel is, without a doubt, the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. First of all, I have never come across such rude management. The man at the front desk who told us he was a manager literally shouted at us when we discretely tried... More

We were only in Barcelona for one night and I wanted a good rate in the Gothic Quarter. I came prepared with earplugs for the noise. I guess we lucked out and hand a room not on the street. Best night sleep in 12 nights as the bed was a great improvement over the horrific Disney Cruise bed. Even though... More

Me with my family and other friends stayed there from 12th May to 14th May 2014. Nice location. Rooms were neat and clean. But they charged me approx 40 euros extra (I paid 910 euros instead of 864 euros) which was totally unacceptable. The reason they explained that it was for city tax which was not written in my booking... More

Can only agree with previous comments. Hotel is located in very noisy area and traffic continues throughout the night making sleep impossible for most of the time. The hotel is perhaps of 2* standard at best. There is a bar but, we were told by reception staff it never opens and it certainly didn't during our stay. Rooms are very... More

Barcino is in a great location, but the noise from the street was unbearable through the night even with plenty of wine and ear plugs!!!!!!!!!!! We were on the first floor because of the noise could not have the window open and the air con is not turned on until May.!!!!!!! The reception staff was not welcoming or friendly. On... More

This was rated as a 4 star hotel. The room we had was above a very noisy street and it wouldn't have been so bad but the air conditioner wasn't working so we had to leave the window open. They collect trash 2 times a night starting at 11pm. There was no sleep for 3 nights. The staff was not... More
