5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

The staff are very friendly and helpful which always makes a trip more enjoyable. Hotel and service is very clean and nice. The only problem I had was finding the metro, got there in the end even if some of the locals looked at you like they had never seen a foreigner before. Overall definitely value for money :-)

I like it because it is nice and clean. But it is a little too far for me! Breakfast is nice and serve till 10:30 which is very good for me who always get up late. The metro Santa Coloma is about 10 to 15 minutes aways from the hotel by walking. There are some local restaurants and shops for locals. I stayed 4 days in the hotel and it was very safe to walk from the metro to the hotel at midnight.

Although on the outskirts of Barcelona, the hotel is situated near 2 metro stations which brings you in 15 minutes in the center of Barcelona. Typical ibis Hotel, clean, modern,..
Service is professional but you can't call it warm.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We had a great stay at the Ibis Barcelona Santa Coloma. The hotel is very nice and clean. The staff speak English (quite a big deal compared to several other hotels in Barcelona) and are very helpful. Breakfast is a bit over-priced, and there are cheaper / better options in the neighborhood. The rooms are big, nice and clean. The free Wifi is a bonus. The hotel is at a walking distance from the Santa Coloma metro station, and we did not have any problems finding it (in the night), thanks to Google Maps. Only one negative - they have a strange practice of charging your card for the purpose of validating it, and then they refund the money which takes 3 - 4 days to get reflected on the account. This is strange indeed, as I havn't seen this anywhere else in Europe including Ibis hotels at other locations. Apart from this, it is definitely a great value for your money!!!!!

We stayed three nights and it is good value for your money. It was close to the metro, grocery stores and restaurants. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well there. There is noise from the street, but when the windows are closed, they have air conditioning and it is quiet. My biggest complaint about this hotel is the wifi. You have to upgrade your wifi and pay extra for it, so downloading apps for site seeing is impossible, had to wait until we went to Starbucks to do that. As for the staff they were excellent, and all of them spoke english, communication was not an issue. We did not take advantage of the breakfast.

Room Tip: We were on the sixth floor, it was quiet with the windows closed

Medium hotel, located in not so attractive Santa Coloma. Rooms are quite nice, beds are gorgeous. Breakfast quality not really convincing even for the price of 7,5 €.

Reception speaks only Spanish (Just as any other hotel in Spain). Overall ok for short stays.
