Hotel Ciutat de Barcelona is located very close to the POI that anyone visiting Barcelona is looking for. The staff is very helpful and very friendly, speaks fluent English. Breakfast is at a decent level as well. There is a plenty of bars and restaurants around, so you won't starve anyways. I recommend sunrises and sunsets at the top terrace.... More

This is a gem of a hotel. I arrived in the afternoon heat & east very hopeful from the exterior but actually the location is great. It feels extremely safe & is well lit up - we came back both nights after midnight & there were lots of people strolling along. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel as there... More

I chose this Hotel as it was near the beach and because it had good reviews on Tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. The location near Le Born was great, It was a short walk to the beach, the hotel itself was lovely....very clean, good breakfast and very friendly, helpful staff, free bottles of water in every corridor and lovely rooftop...

Stayed with my boyfriend for 4 nights, and it was perfect for exploring Barcelona! Walking distance to many shops, bars and restaurants, great transport links, just a brilliant location! The pool on the terrace was great - only downfall being little seating, can get very busy when the weather is good! Also, a bar on the terrace would be nice.... More

Stayed here and can highly recommend this hotel and the location couldn't be better. The room was a good size and the bathroom was very large, all areas of the hotel were extremely clean. The reception staff were very helpful and could assist with anything. The pool was more a cold paddling pool and the sunbathing area very crowded -... More

Really nice, clean and cosy hotel with good breakfast in an amazing neighbourhood. Close to many good restaurants and in the middle of artistic El Born next to a lot of inspiring shops. Would go again on a next trip for sure!

Location wise this hotel is perfect. Rooms are small and cramped, especially for 2 adults and a child. Staff is friendly and helpful. A pool bar or equivalent would put this review at 4 stars. The rooms are far from sound proof, which our neighbours "night activities" reminded us every night :-)

Stayed here with a group of friends. great location - in the old, narrow cobbled streets. Clean simple lines - modern/contemporary design. Rooms are quite quirky as the whole building is a bit of a triangle on plan. Linen, beds, facilities all very good, comfortable standard - not over the top lavish - but did the job and looked smart.... More

The hotel rooms are clean and modern looking. Free waterbottles on all floors (so great!). The hotel's got a small, but very nice, roof terrace with a pool and shower to cool down in. Only minus: our neighboors were smoking in their room, so the tobacco smell came through the AC in our room the last three days... None of... More

My boyfriend, our best friend and I accidentally booked a hotel room at what must be the best location in Barcelona. I love Born, and the view from the French balcony was gorgeous! The staff was always helpful, and the endless, free supply of cold water from a fridge in the corridor saved me my usual late-night excursions in search... More
