“Funky hotel in the perfect spot of Barcelona!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

Best strenght this hotel has is its location. Located smack bang in the middle of la rambla, its where you need to be! We booked onlineand opted out for breakfast as i thought id decide on thr morning and it was 13 euros each. Im glad i did as they had a sale on to 8 euros each, for this you got a buffet breakfast which was really tasty and great value! Hotel reception is modern and classy with the classical features of the old building. Rooms are clean and modern but lack simple features such as a mirror in the main room and a leaflet so i knew how to dial room service... As a base for our holiday this hotel was more than enough a great clean room in the best location with a fantastic big breakfast! I would book this hotel if we came again, location is the key!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Stayed at the Petit Palace for one night prior to boarding a cruise liner. We did not eat in the hotel because the location is so perfect just off Las Ramblas that we wanted to try the adjacent restaurants while we were there. The rooms were perfect. In an hotel of this size and for the price we paid I do not think you can expect to be pampered but the little extras in the room were appreciated. The bathroom was superb with an excellent shower. Had a very comforable night's sleep and all in all I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. The only thing I would have liked is tea/coffee facilities in the room but hey you cannot have everything.

The hotel is in a great location, with Las Ramblas to one side and the main Gothic quarter to the other. Hotel was very clean (cleaned each day, new towels). Laptop in room would have been useful however the internet broke on the first day. Luckily the hotel also supplies free wireless which was very helpful in looking for local bars, restaurants and attractions on your phone. Room smaller than it appears on the photos (triple room - double bed and a single bed).

Metro station Liceu is 30 yards away. Though initially wary of Metro's abroad (and aware of Barcelona's reputation was pick-pocket capital) we had absolutely no problems with it. Great way of getting round. Make it cheaper by buying a T10 ticket, 10 journeys for €9.80, and this can be used by several people (simply pass the ticket back when you go through the gates). Liceu is on the same line as the Nou Camp, which is a must visit for any football fan - and other it's very well signposted should you need to swap lines.

Would recommend this hotel, as well as local restaurants Ziryab (tapas), Sinatra (all sorts, tapas is nice though) and the Manchester bar, which is not too far away.

We slept well. Very quiet. Great location. But nothing extra Breakfast was very basic in a room lit by neon painted tissue boxes. Our family room had only one mirror which was in the bathroom and un heated so impossible to do make up etc for 10 mins after shower.

We had a great time in Barcelona nothing too bad with this hotel but very expensive for what it delivered.

This hotel is in a brilliant location however isn't so easily accessed for the taxis and transfers but not a major issue as they park on next street over. It's just something I didn't know before I went. Anyhow within easy walking distance for taxis metro and buses and lots of the main pubs and eating places and shops. The rooms itself are nice, laptop is great and the safe is brilliant the way it works with the credit card.
Main complaints thought about the room is there are no tea or coffee making facilities which we always like in a hotel room. Also when the sheet came away for the bed the mattress protector below was not clean, it was stained. One more small thing I would say is there are no English tv channels except CNN. Now I know you don't go away to watch tv but it's nice when you want to relax for a short time, I know other hotels in the city offer this.
However the shower is amazing which was a great bonus and being able to control your own heat or ac was great in the room also.

Getting a large room in Europe is not easy. Getting a room with 2 beds, in Barcelona is almost impossible. This one had three (3) beds. Right in the middle of Barcelona, close to everything, is this jem. Great breakfast, great location, and a friendly staff.
