This hotel has a very good location, short walk to everything. (Barceloneta 10 mins, shopping street 2 mins) Rooms are clean, bathtub in the bathroom. People in reception is always nice and friendly. Would recommend to others who are planning to stay in Barcelona.

This hotel is rated at a four star on most sites; however, is a three star at the best. I based this off of "American" star rating and what we are use to when we see a hotel that is labeled four stars. The best thing this hotel has going for it is its location, which is very close to... More

I recently stayed in the Confortel Almirante, This is not a 4 star hotel! It was easy to find and in a good location within a few minutes walk from La Rambla and near enough to the port. However, the hotel is not 4* as promised on the website, it is quite dated, the room was extremely basic but had... More

We stayed at this hotel this June and the hotel was awful, we had 1 thousand Euros stolen from us in the hotel room, most probably by the staff there. We complained to the manager and they didn't care whatsoever. The hotel was very bad and I made a terrible choice staying there.

The hotel is not a 4 star hotel, the room is quite small and ugly, and if you do not get room overlooking the street is worse. The area where the hotel is located is central, very close to La Rambla, the staff is nice.

One was a normal double-bed room and the other a handicapped room. The handicapped room was very spacious so the pwheelchair had room to move around and the wc/shower was well adapted. The only...

Perfectly acceptable price/quality ratio - £50 a night via lastminute, in central Barca, in June is not to be despised. Wouldn't wat to pay more - it's a very marginal 4*, but the fridge was handy for cold water/cava and it was also quiet.

This is not a 4* hotel. I am currently staying in a tiny, dirty and dated room. After speaking to reception we were told it's 4* due to the location.........there is a hostel two minutes up the road. Does that mean it to is 4*? I don't think so. On the website it claims to have LCD flat screen's, some... More
