The hotel's location on Rudolphplatz is a ten minute walk from the large department stores and shopping areas of the city centre and conveniently, there are trams and a U Bhan station across the road.
We, two couples, arrived at 1pm and were allocated rooms on the seventh floor. We had previously requested an early check-in as the normal check-in time is 3pm and were pleased the hotel could accommodate this request. The Reception staff were pleasant and spoke good English. Our room was a reasonable size with furniture in good condition if not a little tired looking. We had an excellent view over the Christmas market with the Dom prominent in the distance. There is good wardrobe and drawer storage space plus tea/coffee making facility. The flat screen TV was multi channelled. The bathroom was a good size with a shower over the bath, we would have preferred a shower cubicle as the shower over the bath arrangement is a bit dated for a modern city centre hotel. There was also a very feint odour of sewerage in the bathroom which was not particularly pleasant but fortunately it did not radiate into the sleeping area. The bed was comfortable but the pillows may as well not be there as they are far too soft and squash down to nothing. We enjoyed free the wifi. I would say the Barcelo is a good standard city centre hotel ideal for short stays for leisure or business purposes, reasonable room rates and a convenient easy to get to location. Not as good as the Pullman but cheaper and in a better location for leisure visitors. Comfortable without being outstanding.
