This hotel is not much to look at on the outside and even the reception is not that impressive but the rooms are excellent value for money. I had a room on the 4th floor and it was as good as many I have stayed in but at €140 was very reasonably priced. The service was fine and the receptionists... More

We were on the street side and on a low floor. Way too noisy for us. Get away to the back of the hotel if possible. Front desk and manager were outstanding. A 5 minute walk to the nearest bus stop but easy to get there. Morning breakfast is limited but well served. Overall we would return but would not... More

We just finished a Holland America cruise and stayed one night at the Melia Sarria (which we love--it was our second time), but our flight was cancelled so we had to stay a second night. Because Melia Sarria was full, they sent us to Hotel Gran Derby just around the corner and still facing a lovely park. The 40 room... More

This was my first trip to Barcelona, first impressions of the hotel were good, there is a lovely décor and the rooms are all plush and modern. The staff were helpful when booking the local bus tour and providing advice about the local area. The location was a slight drawback, approx. a 20 minute taxi ride to Las Ramblas. Furthermore,...

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff were excellent particularly the lady who organised the breakfasts (she even knew New Zealand were playing Australia at rugby!) and the folks on the front desk who helped us with directions and choice of restaurants. The hotel is off the main drag and our room facing the courtyard and pool... More

Great hotel. Although the location is a little far out, it's easily accessible on the tube and felt safe to walk around this part of the city late at night. The best part is the excellent rooms, we paid a nominal upgrade to the junior suite from the standard twin room and it was worth it. The terrace is great... More

Stayed at the Gran Derby in June for five nights. Great staff and amazing service. The junior suite is spacious and nicely decorated in a hip style. I was indulged by the delicious prosciutto at the breakfast every morning! The hotel is in a quiet neighbourhood, perfect for a good night sleep. However, it is a 10-15 min walk from... More

Excellent and caring staff. Very hip hotel in a quiet neighborhood. There are plenty of local restaurants nearby offering authentic food not catering to tourists. There's even a very nice park for little ones to play on across the street.

Excellent service, quiet and superbly decorated and furnished rooms and mini suites. Location is not "old town or touristy but it is right off Diagonal when the tramway will take you anywhere. Excellent price quality ratio boutique hotel when in the 85 to 95 € price range. Wifi system to be improved.

My son and his wife accompanied me to Barcelona and they and I each had a two-story suite, the price of which was amazingly reasonable.. The rooms were spacious, immaculately clean, and very comfortable. Service was attentive, and all the staff were polite, helpful and engaging.
