“The Best Location in Barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Located on Placa Catalunya. One Block from the Aerobus drop on on the Placa. It takes you directly from Terminal 1. The staff is very helpful. If you do not buy breakfast you can still have your morning coffee. We recommend room 403. The room is small but sufficient. The metro is at the front door. The Hop on Hop off is 200 feet. We had a great time.

Perfect central location to everything in Barcelona without breaking the bank. Just perfect for a bed and shower when that is the only time you will be in the hotel. Loved it and the staff were helpful when needed.

Location is superb, metro station as well as the bus stop for the airport are walking distance. La Rambla is just around the corner.

They have managed to convert a very small place into an interesting and comfortable place. Free coffee, tea and very tasty cup cakes available through the day. Laundry room and a cute little sit out, TV Room and a business desk take care of all ur needs. The big disappointment for me was that the room balcony was covered with scaffolding for some painting job and it felt claustrophobic. While booking the place I had specifically requested for a room with a view, I would have really appreciated if they had informed in advance that they don't have any currently. I think to compensate they had sent us a complimentary wine bottle :)

The staff was nice, the place is owned by a couple I think. The gentleman was very nice and helpful while I over heard the lady taking to task one of the staff members which I felt was a bit rude to do in front of guests.

Room Tip: Check if that painting work is over.

CORRECTION!!! The view has been restored as per June 4th renovations have finished!!
Rooms with a view not indeed have a view. And not just any old view, but a fantastic view of Plaza Catalunya, the most amazing square of Barcelona!
For future guests: double rooms with ensuite private bathroom have the view, parttial or complete.
Budget rooms do NOT have the view, so please check when you make your reservation.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon at Hotel Ginebra!

The best part of this very small hotel is its location, right on Plaza Catalunya, 2 minutes from La Rambla. For 5.90 €, we took the Aerobus from the airport which left us just a few minutes away from the hotel. Very convenient. The room was very small, but with a very friendly and helpful staff, free coffee and tea available all day and night, a laundry room which included iron and ironing table available for guests, as well as a living room and small library, it more than made up for the small room. It also features free wifi and also has Air conditioning. Considering the great location, the price was reasonable for Barcelona, which is a very expensive city. Also close to the port for Cruisers.

HOTEL GINEBRA NEWS:
We would like to take the opportunity to tell everybody that renovations on the facada of the building in which we are located, today have finished!!! (today, June 4th 2014).
The scaffolding, which we have had to enjoy for 6 months has been removed, and the view has been restored for those rooms that had a view in the first place. A wonderful view of Plaza Catalunya, the central square of Barcelona!
