“hotel Acta Splendid and Vuelling airline”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Hotel was fine, in a good location and reception staff friendly. Room was clean and bathroom very nice. however we arrived at barcelona airport to check in some 2 1/4 hours before the flight and we were then told that Vuelling had decided to put on a smaller plane which was full, and that we did not have seats and were on a waiting list! I was so shocked and upset as I had bought a ticket like everyone else. It is my understanding that if this happens the airline should ask for volunteers - this did not happen! The lady at the desk was rude and abrupt and did not give us any information about our options at all just shrugged her shoulders. I asked to see a manager and was told there were none available and to go to the gate and wait.

As we had a wedding to attend and I was extremely upset and stressed. We went to the ticket desk and also the attitude was "why are you here? -go and wait at the gate! No help, no solutions, no sympathy.

Finally at the gate after everyone had boarded e were called and managed to get on which surprised us but there were four or five other people also waiting. If we had not got to the airport so early we we would not have been 1st on the waiting list and would have been left stranded.

I have flown with many airlines and was concerned about bad reviews about vuelling but decided to give them a try. Never again!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of hotel as road noise loud.

Location was great. So close to La Rambla and other landmarks; but in a lovely neigbourhood in which you feel like home. Too many shops and restaurants that are not very expensive comparing to very touristic districs like la Rambla and Gothic area.

Room Tip: The only thing I did not liked in the hotel was its noise in the mornings. The voice of other rooms...

I have been to this hotel on easter and I really liked how central it is and the attention of the staff. They also have a security deposit, quiet rooms and very clean.

The only downside is the lack of power plugs in the room, but fully compensated by a comfortable massive super king bed and great wide bathroom.

The hotel is easy to get to from the airport. Just take the Aerobus to Plaza Universitad and it's 2 blocks away, 5 minute walk.
It is a small hotel and easy to get around town. A few minutes walk to Plaza Cataluynia, which is located right at the top of the Ramblas. You can walk right to the waterfront from there to see the Christopher Columbus statue and the boardwalk along the sea.
The Cathedral is easy walking distance ,just past the Ramblas.
Also from the Ramblas is lots of designer shopping.
The Sagradra Familia, built and designed by Gaudi is also within walking distance.
Lots of restaurants and bars everywhere. All with reasonable prices for beer and tapas.
The hotel also has a breakfast buffet that is very good.
There is an internet computer on the upper (1st) floor available for free.
The prices are reasonable and the hotel is clean as well as the rooms.
Very nice stay close to many amenities.
