How to get there:-
From Barcelona Airport, take the Aerobus (6 Euros) directly to Placa Catalunya itself (the bus stop is right in front of the El Corte Ingles department store). Walk towards Carrer de Fontanella and turn into a 12 foot wide pedestrian lane, Carrer d’Estruc. Walk down 50m and you will reach Denit.
(i) Excellent location. 5 minutes walk to Placa Catalunya, 2 blocks away from La Ramblas and minutes away from the start of Passaig de Gracia (high street shopping, Casa Battlo & La Pedrera). Next to the Gothic Quarter. Walking distance to Palau de la Musica and Picasso Museum. Excellent restaurants and tapas bars around the area. Very close to Metro stations. Getting taxis is no problem at all.
(ii) Rooms are very clean. Mattress is soft but firm. Housekeeping service is good.
(iii) Hotel away from the busy streets and is quiet.
(iv) Wireless internet provided but it’s quite slow and patchy. Ipod dock available in the room.
(v) Breakfast was simple but adequate. Most importantly, the coffee was decent (Nespresso).
(vi) Staffs speak reasonably good English. Friendly and helpful.
(vii) Interiors are modern, trendy and minimalist.
But, you have to put up with:-
(i) Room is small (even by European standards and even after booking a “large” room).
(ii) View from the room is the pedestrian lane itself, and it gets pretty dark from the lack of sunlight coming in.
(iii) No facial tissues provided (thought that was standard?).
(iv) No coffee making facility (you need to get it from the reception)
(v) Sink tucked in the corner of the room (you can pull the blind over it if you can’t bear the sight of it)
(vi) Air conditioning unit was leaking (maybe due to lack of servicing?)
(vii) No bell boys to assist in carrying your luggage. So be prepared to haul your luggage into a small lift and through narrow corridors.
Good stay, excellent location and very good value for money (for a 3 star hotel) despite some shortcomings.
