“Out of the way?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

On arriving by taxi the hotel seemed out of the way and in a run down area but once you get your bearings you realise its only minutes from the beach in one direction and although a decent walk to the metro it wasn't too bad to find the city centre.

The room was reasonable size but lacked tea and coffee facilities, something I thought was the norm nowadays. Breakfast room could do with redesigning. Cramped and everyone seemed to be on top of each other.

My partner and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights at the beginning of June. We got transfers from the airport as part of our package so can't comment on public transport links here, but once we arrived we were very pleased!

The lady on the front desk spoke English and was very welcoming. She explained the hotel facilities to us. There was the option of adding breakfast to our booking for 9euros each (would have been 15euros if we didn't pre book it) but we decided not to. This turned out to be a good decision for us as we found a lovely little cafe/bakery a couple of streets away that did amazing croissants and cappuccinos for a very reasonable price! I can't remember the name of it now - but go exploring! The bar on the beach 2 minutes walk from the hotel also had both continental and English breakfast options of you wanted to breakfast next to the sand!
The lady on the front desk also provided us with a map of the area, pointed out the local transport links and on our second night, advised us of a very nice tapas restaurant in the Port Olympic area. We ate dinner both nights in this area as it is only a 20 minute walk from the hotel along the beach and has a huge variety of restaurants and bars to choose from.
We also got a 2euro discount each for the city sightseeing bus from the hotel reception. I would recommend this for a short trip as we got to see a lot of the sights in a short amount of time.
Our room was on the fourth floor. It was facing away from the sea but had a good view out across Barcelona. You could even see the top of the Sagrada Familia in the distance. The bed was huge as it was 2 good sized single beds pushed together. The shower was nice and powerful and the bathroom had a hair dryer. There were also a lot of complimentary toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel, soap and disposeable razors). We used the safe in the room, but didn't have any tea and coffee making facilities. Not that we spent much time in the room - there was so much to explore! Overall we found our stay in Hotel 4 Bareclona very comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful and allowed us to leave our luggage at the hotel on the last day in between us checking out at 10am and our airport transfer at 6pm. It was very close to the beach, metro and city sightseeing bus stops, and still only about a 40 minute walk to the city centre. (We particularly liked exploring the Gothic quarter). Would recommend staying here for a good priced hotel.

The rooms are nice but small. It is close to the beach (5-10min) but the immediate area is totally dead and it's a little hood. Staff is friendly.The hotel is also close to the metro, but its a relatively doable walk to the city center ~25 minutes. About 15 minutes walk there are a lot of very nice bars and clubs, which are right on the beach (such as opium). Overall, good stay.

I had a mixed feeling by choosing a hotel that appeared a little out of the way, but i'm glad i have stayed there...

- Staff are friendly and will help you if you needed something and give you advice...
- Breakfast is nice, fresh, and dishes are not left to become empty...
- The price is excellent
- A little away from the action, but easily accessible by metro through the Llacuna stop on the yellow line, just 7 minutes walking...and you can also walk to La Rambla...
- Very close to the beach...which is perfect...and the marina with a lot of restaurants is also nearby...
- Nearby tourist bus stop...excellent if you want to see Barcelona, and this stop doesn't have a lot of people waiting for the bus...
- Internet is great and free...
- The hotel has a new feeling to it and the rooms are clean, and you feel very comfortable sleeping...

Overall i enjoyed my stay there, i just wish i had given Barcelona more than 5 days...would stay there again...

I just finished my stay in Hotel 4 Barcelona Jun 15 2013, quite up to date hotel, clean and the staff are very friendly, breakfast is excellent, so many things to choose from. Internet WIFI is available in all rooms, two computers at the lobby, the location of the hotel is not bad, 7 minutes walk to metro station Llacuna and 10-15 minutes walk to the beach, movie theatre in English in a small mall near the hotel. Very good hotel for its value.

Have stayed in many hotels around Barcelona on business trips and was really pleased to find this one which I think is good value in terms of this city. Close to a metro as well as the beach, and therefore convenient for travelling to meetings but also nice place to relax in the evening, near to Rambla de Poblenou, the Vila Olimpica and also one of the tourist bus routes. Room was clean and modern, free wifi, good breakfast (if you select it at check-in there is a discount).

We stayed here at the end of a Cruise and found it excellent base to explore the great city of Barcelona. The location is great 5 mins from the beach close to the metro and also just a few mins away from the open top tour bus stop . The rooms are modern and spacious with a good quality Porcelanosa bathroom Free fast wifi and good air con. The breakfast was also very good . Reception staff were very helpful giving local information booking onward travel with out any problems. I would stay here again without hesitation
