Nice location and about only 5 minutes walk from the metro. Very friendly staff and bar staff in the restaurant. Didn't eat here but have heard it's good and seemed popular with people. Room and bathroom very clean and comfortable and cleaned daily.

I have stayed in this hotel two or three times a year for the past seven years. The rooms are simply furnished, the bathrooms in some rooms quite old but everywhere is always immaculately clean. The rooms looking out onto the street are definitely the best ones, the noise is cut out with the windows closed and the aircon works... More

This place is located in a great location, the staff were overly helpful and you get more than what you paid for. We had the unfortunate experience of having to move from 3 hotels in 3 days (poor planning on our behalf). Our first night was in La Ciudadela was amazing, so much so that we cancelled our next hotel... More

We stayed two nights while visiting Barcelona. The location was ideal for us and our room (106) overlooked the park and street. Traffic noise was hardly noticeable with the window closed and the ducted a/c worked well. Everything seems close by, but you won't need to venture far for good food because the cafe/restaurant downstairs is excellent. We'd go back... More

This was a last-minute booking over the Internet for a short visit to Barcelona. We stayed 2 nights in an exterior room overlooking the road at the front of the building. I was a bit apprehensive about traffic noise but the windows are well insulated and at night there didn't seem to be any traffic at all. Our room was... More

This place is a little gem. It's conveniently situated....right beside a massive park which is easily identified on even the smallest of maps. The rooms are exactly what you would expect...a trip down memory lane to my halls of residence at uni. The bed is extremely comfortable, the shower is hot and powerful, the fridge is a wonderful extra I... More

We stayed four nights at this cosy hotel. It is very well located and 10 minutes walking distance to city center, 2 minutes to subway and 15 minutes to barceloneta beach. The room is a bit small which was told when we make the reservation, but very clean and furnished with a very comfortable bed and a big size led... More

After a business seminar I stayed in Barcelona for two days with a colleague. We booked this hotel. If you are on the budget this is great solution! Bear in mind that this is the 1 star hotel, don't be unrealistic with expectations. Great for sleepover and to have a place just to change your clothes and take a shower.... More

The hotel is very well located. It is still at walking distance from many main attractions, restaurants and the beach, and a few meters away from the metro. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We could hear some noise from the terrace, but it was not very disturbing. Stuff was very friendly and helped with directions and questions. Internet... More

I was in Europe for several week for work and took a weekend trip to Barcelona as I had never visited Spain before. I wanted to try a place that wasn't a chain, but locally owned and went with La Ciudadela and wasn't disappointed. It's close enough to walk to the old quarter. The staff were very helpful. And the... More

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighborhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
