I stayed here two years ago, and was very content. This time we were given a room with a view out to some sort of really narrow backyard, looking more like an old elevator shaft. And they took the same price for this room as they did for the ones with a street view. Scandalous! I would in fact recommend... More

Situated in the best neighborhood of the town, Hotel Ciutat de Barcelona was the best value for money hotel to choose, especially during a tourist sinking period, in the middle of July. Clean rooms, minimal decoration, excellent services and many surprises during our stay made our holiday unique. Free bottled still water offered in a daily basis and free WiFi... More

Close to Picasso Museum, Gothic Quarter, main train station, metro and best of all....bars/restaurants in abundance...FAB...FAB.....FAB The three of us stayed here and had... More

As many have said already, small but comfortable rooms, very clean and serviced to a high standard daily, excellent location for sightseeing with loads of alleyways to shop in and explore. The staff were very friendly and the free water is a lovely touch after a hard days walk in the heat. The plunge pool is nice to soak in... More

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
