Great hotel and great staff. Located in a nice part of the city; walking distance to many nice shoppes, restaurants, and Camp Nou (the soccer stadium). Reasonable rates. We had a two story room for 5 of us and had plenty of room. I highly recommend it. The breakfast there was good. The front desk staff were very nice; helped... More

Great choice of hotel - very good value, nice rooms and good service and for the price paid it would be hard to complain. My only comment is the lack of desk in the room and slow internet, was hard to do some work here but all in all ok.

If you mind staying out of touristy areas, this hotel is a great choice. It is not far - about 6 eur taxi ride to the centre, there is abundance of great restaurants and wine shops and the rooms are tastefully designed and very comfortable, apart from the fact that there are no desks so if you need to work......

what service they could not do more , , and the pool on after a hot day is fantastic, room split level room was good when you have kids , and the power shower is to die for. Breakfast 17 euros a bit much for me but I don't eat large breakfasts.

Due to the air strike in France, we had an unexpected visit to Barcelona. Our taxi driver brought us here, Hotel Gran Derby. We were met by very friendly staff who took our luggage for us. Check in was quick (thankfully as it was 1.30am!) & the manager very helpful. We were shown to our room which was amazing! Large,... More

Stayed here with my wife September 2013. Really nice rooms but sound does travel through the hotel especially if you are near the lobby area. There was a very noisy reception party on one night of our stay. Door slamming from other rooms was incredibly intrusive. We could hear next doors shower running. Hotel reception staff were very helpful- it... More

Stayed at this hotel a while ago. However, it was good design taste (very Barcelona style!) and quality. Room was well distributed and furnished for its size. Bed was comfortable. All very clean. Breakfast, that is served in an underground dining room, was nice. Hotel personnel were helpful.

First of all the day manager Andreas was awesome. We were first given a deluxe room on the fifth floor which was nothing spectacular but fine, however when we returned that night the room smelled heavily of cigarette smoke and the noise from the street was ridiculously loud even for a city dweller who is used to traffic. And this... More

I spent, along with my fiancée, a prolonged week-end at this very chic boutique hotel. I was absolutely impressed with the artwork, from the lobby up to the rooms. Initially, we booked a standard room, but upon arrival, a very nice gentleman, from the reception, offered us the possibility to upgrade to a deluxe, for a small fee per night.... More
