This hotel is right at the center, about 4 minutes walk from the train station Jaume I and walking distance to the cathedral and many near by sites. It has great roof top terrace with pool, in which you can relax in the evening after touring the city all day long. There are many coffee shops and bars within 5... More

Lovely clean hotel and excellently located. Staff were very friendly and a nice touch in providing water for guests on every floor. Pool very small but didn't have any problems in getting a lounger when required. Would have liked tea/coffee facilities in the room but there are numerous cafes and bars surrounding the hotel where you can go. Check out... More

We were a group of eight girls and all of us were very happy with our hotel. Location wise, this hotel was great. The taxi dropped us off at the bottom of the road and we walked the 3 minutes to the hotel. It's in the Gothic Quarter so it's so beautiful to walk around and discover little cafes and... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and were very pleased with this hotel. The location in El Born is perfect with lots of small plazas and bars/restaurant nearby for food and drinks. I would recommend Burnells for breakfast- great bocadillos and fresh bakery! The rooms are a bit small but nice and clean. The hotel offers free water 24/7 in... More

This hotel is well located in the quarter of the city, just a 3 minute walk from the nearest Metro station, Jaume I. The rooms are a good size and are very clean and modern, with modern colours and furniture. The bathrooms are very clean and also of contemporary design. A good breakfast is being served in the breakfast room... More

I wanted so much to give this hotel a good write up but my intentions were dramatically changed on receipt of my credit card bill after returning home. During my stay a I returned to my room to find a bottle of perfume smashed on the bathroom floor. There is no possibility that the bottle was blown over as the... More

Extremely dark, small rooms. Rude, unprofessional service. My friends and I booked this room here for three people, as one of our friends was supposed to fly to Milan but due to a strike, was unable to leave, therefore had an extra person, which we were upfront about from the beginning. A male front desk attendant tried to demand us... More

We stayed here on a one night stopover after a cruise. Location is good in the old town, amongst the maze of small streets with a short walk to the main shopping area. We walked from the port approx 20-25mins, its also slightly less to the airport bus stop so convenient for both. The rooms are basic but clean and... More

Stayed at the Hotel Ciutat April 23-25. The location of this hotel is fantastic, a very short walk to the Picasso museum. The front desk and hotel staff were very helpful, loved the free water bottles that were offered. Make sure to take advantage of the rooftop deck especially in the evening when you can enjoy a beautiful view of... More

My recent stays at this hotel were comfortable and convenient. Within a two week period, we had two short stays in this hotel, and were well pleased by its comfort, location and service each time. For the first stay, we had a room on a higher floor facing the back of the hotel. Whilst somewhat disappointed initially by the lack... More
