Girlfriend and I decided to make our first trip to barcelona and stumbled upon this gem of a hotel (for the price)!. Arriving at the hotel we took in how grand the Decore of the hotel lobby was and how friendly and helpful the reception staff were. We arrived at the hotel around 11am and the room was ready for...

I wanted to give them five stars but there was a major problem with the WIFI in the rooms and overall in the hotel. In spite of repeated requests it was not fixed. Not having WIFI as promised is like not having water or electricity. Besides that had no other problems. Hotel is centrally located and clean. Roooms are spacious.... More

I thought this hotel was really great value and located in a great neighbourhood not far from some of Barcelona's cultural highlights. The area had some great options for eating and drinking too. The hotel itself is clean and modern, with a lovely lobby area, roof terrace bar and public areas. Our room was of a good size with a... More

The first thing is the location. It is great! there is a metro station (Provence) up the road. There is a great bar selling lovely food and drink to the early hours. However always packed, but packed for a reason. The Rambles is a stone throw. Loads of lovely monuments nearby. Drinking and eating is a lot cheaper than I... More

As with most of the trendy hotels in Barcelona. This one doesn't disappoint. Spacious rooms and either well clad or soundproof rooms meant a please nights sleep was always on the cards. A ten minute walk or a 15 minute stroll to las ramblas was a nice way to soak up the atmosphere. If you can't be bothered with a... More

We stayed here on a long weekend city break. It was a 10 min walk straight up Balmes from Plaza Catalunya where the airport bus dropped us off. The room was spacious and the bathroom too. We stayed at the back so had no problem with noise. The staff were friendly and helpful with our enquiries. The rooftop bar and... More

Hotel is in L'Eixample District. Room was large, big bed, windows to street side, but not noisy. Bathroom was big and had shower and bathtub. Wifi a little slow in the room, but working. Only minus- shower cap broke down first day and wasn't repaired through all stay (4 days). Plaza Catalunya is around 10 min. of walk. Plenty of... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Barcelona Center Hotel. The location is good, particularly if you like exploring a city on foot. It's not far from the north entrance of the Passeig de Gracia station, which is where the overland trains to and from the airport stop, so getting to the hotel was quite easy. You can also walk...

I'd normally stay at Axel but wanted something different for a change. This was a great alternative only a couple blocks from there. Very warm welcome, they knew my name as I came through the door. Quite spacious room and very clean. Beds are firm, but no more so than anywhere else you'll generally find on the continent. Had seen... More
