“Excellent Hotel/Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Stayed 27 to 29 May 2013, This was a business trip with the added value of taking in the fantastic sites and food that makes Barcelona so special.
The Hotel is just a few meters from the main road La Rambla (my colleagues are Catalan so I won't use Las Ramblas) the streets are very narrow as can be expected in the Old Town.
The entrance and lobby areas are very clean and well lit, the staff are very pleasant and helpful.
My room (205) was a good size, I know the room that a colleague had (206) was smaller, the room is well laid out with a large bed that is comfortable, a fast responding Air Con system, wall mounted TV and plenty of cupboard/worktop space.
The bathroom is a very good size with a large shower area and kitted out with the usual NH hotel group toiletries.
There is a room safe and fridge/bar, good to have.
The dining area is in the lower ground area, the table layout is spot on, there is plenty of space between tables, the food/drink choice is excellent as is the quality, again the staff are very pleasant.
I will be staying again.

I must confirm a point relating to the area and not the hotel! You will have most probably heard about the "PICK POCKET" problem, my colleague had €300 in notes and his hotel card stolen from the front right pocket of his jeans, he was bumped into by 2 men, 1 young the other quite old, he then checked his pocket to find the contents missing, he turned and ran after the 2, they stopped and gave the money back with the card.
He was very fortunate, his wallet and phone had been left in his room, otherwise they could also have been taken.
Please! take as little as possible with you on to the streets.

Room Tip: 205 is a good size room.

The hotel itself isn't much of a piece of art - just a decent, clean and satisfying place. The location is a king though. It is right in the middle of the Barcelona nightlife, yet conveniently located on a quiet side street.

For this location offers great prices.

We stayed here for 5 nights, the hotel is modern, in good condition and kept very clean. The staff were helpful and there is a luggage store for leaving bags after you check out.. It is in a fantastic location right next to La Rambla and the Liceu metro station making exploring Barcelona very easy.

The hotel is well located next to the rambla and the mercat de la boqueria. We did not take the metro during our stay at this hotel, we walked to the old city and even to barceloneta.

Our room was clean and comfortable but small.

Concerning the staff, it depends on who is at the front desk. One was more welcoming than the other one.

Stayed in this hotel for 2nd time in a year, it's right on Las Ramblas but as its not on the Main Street it's quiet. Rooms are ideal- clean, modern and well equipped. Lovely toiletries and a great shower. Breakfast is fine with a selection of cereals, fruit, pastries, juices, and some hot items.
We booked the weekend package which means we didn't need to check out until 5 pm on the Sunday which was fab. Would definitely stay here again. Great location, nice staff, free wifi and nice rooms.

Spot on location at a sensible price. Safe in rooms, excellent beds, clean bathrooms plenty hot water everything works with clean linen fresh towels. Air con, room service, key entry lobby, 24 hour reception and breakfast if you want it....

Yes you can find so much choice in this fabulous city but this hotel is spot on. I booked direct with the hotel and requested a triple and double room adjacent and in a quiet spot. All accommodated, beds made for our arrival, exactly right,, rooms together on 4th floor 411 + 412. The view,,,well a wall and the neighbours washing but who goes to Barcelona and chooses to stay on the Ramblas for the view...!

Solid choice right at THE BACK OF THE MARKET, underground and independant parking close by. Taxi pull in spot right by reception lobby, disabled ramp for good access.

For us some negatives.....breakfast was disappointing, book room only and head for one of the great tapas cafes in the market. it was a Bit of a bun flight and unclean tables if you get it at a bad time.

As all previous reviews, the rooms are smaller and basic but adequate.

Not for romantics looking for intimate corners, the lime green and black modern box type furniture and decor is not plush and not for honeymooners!!.

We would definately stay there again if taking people to Ramblas for first time and if taking people with walking problems,, as is so close to the activity, and a walkable visit to get to Gaudi square past the avenue shops.
