I feel that I will be a litle unfair to this hotel because of the star rating it has. With that in mind, let me preface my review by saying that there is nothing wrong with the hotel or staff, but I was expecting more because of the 4 stars. Having said that, the hotels biggest appeal is its location.... More

Our room was perfectly comfortable and clean, with a view from the back over to the Sagrada Familia. Staff were friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for the gothic quarter and for good bars and restaurants.

This was advertised as a 4 star hotel when I booked it through last minute.com, I have to be honest and not agree with this rating as I've had much better experiences of other hotels which hold a lower star. However what this place does offer is a central point for most attractions in Barcelona! Roughly 2 minutes from the... More

Terrible bathroom: not very clean, broken hair dryer that was not fixed regardless of our complaint, freezing stone floors, bath plug that doesn't fit drain hole and bath glass curtain with the space space between it's and bath's edges, so however careful you take shower , you'll get floor covered with water then. Front Desk agents are very nice, some... More

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.

We arrived at the airport and got the aerobus(30mins) to placa de cataluyna then walked to the hotel within 5 mins. Location: across the road from Barcelona Cathedral, shortcuts to... More

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
