Absolutely amazing hotel, clean, brilliant service, wonderful indoor pool with a lovely atmosphere. Love the rooftop bars and pools. Perfect location. Much prefer to many 5 star hotels in Barcelona. I can't say enough good about it!

I stayed at this hotel for 6 days in a superior room. The room was spotless and the cleaner came in daily. The toiletries were lovely and there were slippers and a towelling robe for both of us. All the staff I came across were polite and professional. We only used the roof terrace and that was spotless.The view from... More

We tripped over this hotel by accident ,ironically recommended by the receptionist of the Meridien Hotel .First impressions of the beautiful reception and lounge area looking very gangster chique with mixed large comfy leather or fabric sofas and armchairs, dark wooden tables and beams and subdued atmospheric lighting with fabulous artwork on the walls. The staff were friendly and advised... More

A perfect hotel for a romantic get-away. Upon entering the hotel you find yourself in a very agreeable lobby decorated in a colonial/nautical style. The receptionist was efficient and we were perfectly received in English - the reception would later print out our tickets for various attractions cheerily and without charge - before being shown to our room. The porter... More

We booked a Deluxe room, B&B rate with a king size bed and were lodged on the 3rd floor overseeing the La Rambla. A very nice, large room, wonderful amenities, firm bed with 4 choices of pillows, nightly turn-down service and a great view of the pedestrian walkway on La Rambla. A full (very full) buffet breakfast was included each... More

Definitely recommend this hotel, since it is a one off individual hotel with great service. The location is brill for getting to anywhere in Barca. La Rambla was just outside and bustling, but then you have the calmness of the hotel, and it smells lovely. Isabella's is great to chill out, but I would recommend booking a booth if you... More

A great hotel, it was a shame to leave the hotel to explore Barcelona. The facilities are amazing, especially the roof top terrace at sunset. The pool is impressive, and the pool is the basement is incredibly quiet as everyone is using the roof top terrace pool. The staff are incredibly helpful, and the hotel lobby is fantastic. A great...

Location and roof top terrace are great! Subway right around the corner. Staff is super friendly, room service was there in 10 min. Indoor pool unbelievable! You should by tickets for Parc Guell and Sagrada online or you wait for hours. Take the Aerobus to Placa Catalunya and walk 2 min to Hotel.

This is definitely an excellent choice while staying in Barcelona so long as you do not mind staying near touristy and tacky La Rambla (the entrance at least is off of La Rambla). Aside from from being off of La Rambla the hotel is in a good location to see many parts of the city by foot. The hotel is... More

Due to our airline moving flight time we arrived 3hours before check in, the reception staff said not a problem and immediately found a room that had just become available. We stayed here for three days prior to cruising, what a great decision. The hotel was full of charm and a couldn't be in a better location. From the minute... More
