Being a regular and staying an average of 10 - 14 nights there per year, I have to write another review as all my feedbacks on their lousy room service and food quality falls on deaf ears. It is now coming to a point where even the staff advises me not to order room service as the food quality is... More

Excellent value for money, friendly and helpful staff in a great location. We had a short side trip and the folks at the desk were more than happy to store our luggage at no extra charge. Look forward on returning and will probably use this hotel for all of my business and pleasure trips to Barcelona.

We spent a long weekend at the Gran Derby hotel and liked it . Don't expect too much while thinking a 4 star hotel as the rooms can really use some refurbishing . Rooms are quite large , with nice living room and small bad room. I can't really note anything dramatically bad, but the rooms and furnitures really need... More

Wonderful modern boutique hotel. Close to the Metro and good restaurants . Very clean and quiet . The loft style room is great but it can be trying to get your heavy luggage up and down the narrow, winding staircase

The Gran Derby hotel is about a 20 minute taxi ride from the airport. We had booked tickets to watch Barcelona FC, and due to a 4 hour flight delay, we arrived with only an hour until kick off. For this reason, we really appreciated a quick and easy check in at the hotel. We immediately felt welcome, and the... More

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights while in Barcelona, the service was great, the room was amazing (especially the shower) and we were totally satisfied... until checkout.

I conducted a meeting and stayed at the Hotel Gran Derby. The room was very reasonable to rent for my meeting and worked out quite nice. My sleeping hotel room was very nice it had a separate living room area, nice bathroom and great bedroom. The hotel was perfectly positioned with quick access to everything in Barcelona.

On first sight, I was impressed with the Gran Derby, but a few things took the polish off. The good bits? The room was very large, laid out across two floors. The shower was excellent. Could be better? Location is OK. Its a quiet part of town, with some restaurants in walking distance, but the nearest bars are not the... More

We booked this hotel through 'Small Luxury Hotels of the World'. Being a member of that group of hotels sets the expectations pretty high. As such they did not meet more than average when comparing to what we expected and to other hotels in this group that we have visited. The room was very nice, clean, comfortable beds, big bathroom.... More
