We stayed in a studio apartment for a week in Barcelona. The apartments are nicely renovated in modern style. The beds and pillows are very comfortable too! The best thing about it is its great location. There are many restaurants and shopping right at your doorstep. We were also pleasantly surprised to find a big supermarket, Carrefour, just opposite the apartment. The service of the staff were a little disappointing though. The female reception was pretty helpful but on other days, the male reception was not too helpful.

This is one of the best located hotels in Barcelona for those interested in the Gothic quarter and surrounds. We had a recently refurbished room at the back of the hotel that was very quiet, albeit having no view. It was however well equipped and very comfortable. The multilingual staff at reception are extremely helpful and obliging. We greatly enjoyed being able to walk to good restaurants and cafes catering for all tastes as well as being so handy to the wonderful Bequeria market. The capacity to buy fresh fruit and vegetables and meats and cook them is very useful on occasions, particularly at breakfast and excellent bread is also freely available a few doors away. A great place to stay at a very reasonable price.

We have stayed here a few times before and saw a big difference in the newly renovated rooms. These are modern a spacious. We got a larger room for a family of 4 which had a nice balcony which overlooks a beautiful square at the back of las Rambla. The location simply could not be any better. It is right at the heart of the action yet the rooms are nice and quite. Breakfast in hotel is very good and reasonably priced. Only down side was that the room was very expensive compared to our last visit (about 260 euros a night). Also note that not all rooms have been renovated.

Room Tip: Rooms at back overlooking square are great.

We stayed 3 nights in October and while the location is convenient, we were not impressed with the worn look of the room. The carpet was stained and looked dirty and the furniture was old. The kitchen area only had one chair for the two of us and the bathroom was oddly configured with the door opening barely missing the sink and stopping inches from the toilet. The tv was the size of a computer monitor--small one.
I would stay elsewhere next time for the price

Having been to Barcelona on business trips earlier, ended up staying in more prominent international chains in the business districts. This time we planned late, and everything was full. What started as a "no choice" hotel, turned out to be a place that will be my first choice on future trips!

Unlike other hotels, Citadines being a service apartment offers decent sized rooms. There is a nice kitchenette, bay windows, modern bathroom, and free Internet. A lot of rooms are being renovated, so expect some disruption and noise. The rooms at the back (new wing) are more spacious, but there's no view. It is probably not a great choice for romantic couples on holiday, but was perfect for business travelers like us. Families that need to cook their own meal for kids will like this place, but there's almost no service (a very basic and cold breakfast, basic dining). Anyway, with Barcelona up all night, there's no dearth of food or entertainment just outside. Service, as in the staff, is quite good. Led by Hector who seems to be there all the time-- and greets you with a smile each time, no matter what time of the day or night.

The only gripe we had is that they have no TV channels in English. Sometimes you want a few minutes of TV at the end of the day, and it would help to get at least couple of shows in English (other than BBC and Bloomberg). The TV itself is a beautiful large screen, framed by interesting pictures of the city. Also, the bed is nice and hard. Not sure who likes those ultra-soft plush beddings in chain hotels, but this one was firm and comfortable just the way I like it. Slept very well!

The location is the best part of this hotel. Like I said in the title, staying in the heart of the city really lets you relish it. Despite odd hours and tired days on a business trip, staying here means you have to feel the vibe of La Rambla just to get back to your room from work. Given that we had no time for any formal sight seeing, this hotel allowed us to experience Barcelona with minimum fuss. It is also very well connected with Metro stations 5 minutes walk on either side. The beachfront is about 15 minutes, and the Gothic quarter is also 5 minutes.

Room Tip: Carry an HDMI cable so you can connect your laptop to the TV and watch something. All the channels a...

A bit old and needing renovation in comparison to other hotels in the brand / class, it's still a reasonably well priced hotel in an excellent location on Las Ramblas walking area. Full mini-kitchen including oven, but smelled a bit musty and moldy; rooms could certainly use some updating. Advertised king beds are two singles connected (common in europe), so look elsewhere if the gap is an issue.
