“Wonderful Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Excellent service, warm, attentive, from the moment I made the reservation to the end of my stay. Great rooms, super clean, comfortable, modern, with luxury bathrooms. The location was just right, a quiet but very central location. I highly recommend this hotel to single people as well as families.

I stayed here few months ago for 3 nights. The hotel is nice and clean and the food is very good. I really can't say anything bad about it. The location is ok. It was far from the center but when we went to Barcelona we wanted to see the entire city so...the position of the hotel was not so important. If you buy the city tour bus tickets then you shouldn't care about the position. There is a city bus station at 5 minutes away. So..if you want a nice, clean and good hotel for a good amount of money, then choose it.

We upgraded ourselves to a Junior Suite which was a nice room on the seventh floor with a roof terrace.Staff were very nice the hotel was fine and well located and the cost was a very reasonable €110 Euros per night.
The WiFi access was a nightmare constantly logging in again and again even though I paid for "premium" wi-fi.
As I was there for business and needed to upload and download presentations etc. this was a real pain in the neck. I think that most Spaniards either don't care or have data on their mobiles but it feels a bit third world not to be able to collect emails.
There is a tram line very close to the hotel which runs up the Gran Via so it would be a good spot for shopping.

Room Tip: Pay for the upgrade to a mini suite

Great hotel and lovely staff. Was travelling with a group of 4. My room was on 7th floor so had a lovely terrace. Tanya (cocktail bar) was an amazing bar tender and we loved her new creation cocktails. Would definitely stay again!

We thought we had booked the Hotel Gran Derby but somehow managed to end up in the Derby Hotel which is directly across the road. This was fine though and we had a good stay. Our only complaint was the Wifi which is very poor and we had to keep putting in passwords, also there was no access to email. We paid extra for the Wifi.

The room was good, and the location is in a quiet part of Barcelona. Not far from hop on/hop off buses, which is a perfect way to get around in Barcelona. The personell was helpfull, and they make refreshing drinks in the bar. On the downside I was dissapointed with the breakfast.

Hotel for those who go to Nou Camp. Located far from La Rambla. Hotel staff is very helpful, they can open safe in your room even if you just locked it.
Rooms are very clean and small. Expensive breakfast.
