“Good Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Visiting Barcelona for the first time, I tried to choose a hotel which was close to the main attractions but still bne in a fairly quiert location. The Hotel Atlantis fitted that bill. Just round the corner from la Rambla and close to Place Catalunya, the location was ideal. It was very noisy, however, on our first night due to the following day being a holiday. Fireworks and firecrackers were still going off at 3-30 in the morning.
As for the hotel itself, check in was o.k. We arrived early but were allowed to leave our cases while we went to have a look round before coming back at check in time.
Our room was on the 4th floor at the front of the hotel. The room was clean but small. There was a mini bar and the prices seemed reasonable though we only used the bottled water from it.
Tea and coffee making facilities but no proper tea and the cups were paper cups.
The hotel has a bar but it is only open from 6-30 to 10-30 in the evening but not at weekends or holidays. This meant, arriving on Sunday and Monday being a holiday, the bar wasn't open until Tuesday. However, we decided to have a drink after being out for dinner on Tuesday night. The bar was staffed by a woman who didn't speak English. The selection wasn't very extensive so I had a half bottle of wine and my wife had a Cointreau which we took up to our room.
Breakfast was typical continental with some cooked items - scrambled egg, bacon, mushrooms and potato in breadcrumbs. Breakfast is normally served from 7-30 to 10-00 but if you come down after 9 there is a good chance there will be no scrambled egg left.
At check out we were again able to leave our case until it was time to leave for the airport.

We stayed in the hotel on the 30th May 2013 for one night and I completely agree with the location comment made in other reviews. You literally walk for two minutes down the road and you are right at the top of Las Ramblas, near HardRock Café etc.

The Hotel Reception is small, but modern and had a secure place to store your luggage, the room is a little dated, the décor is old fashioned, but the room and bathroom was clean and bed comfy, which is the most important thing.

Breakfast was terrible - we ended up in a café round the corner, it was a little cold, dry and stale looking and there wasn't enough tables for guests - but, this was a small inconvenience, it wasn't a problem.

From my comparisons the difference between staying in this hotel and another on Las Ramblas was about £60 and for a two minute walk down the road, it is £60 more to spend in Barcelona! I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I spent three nights at this hotel in March 2013. Based on the older reviews on street noise, I initially asked for a room away from the street - big mistake. The room did not have a window and it was like a dark cave. I asked the front desk for another room with a window to the street and they obliged. It the right decision; it was great to witness the street activity and the noise was not a problem at all once I closed the window. The room was decent; it was not a Hilton, but I had no complaints on anything. Internet connection was fine. The walls between the rooms were a bit flimsy - I could clearly hear the loud moans and groans of a couple making love in the next room on two nights - other than that this is a reasonably good hotel; conveniently located with respect to subway and other tourist attractions. I would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: If you are a tourist in Barcelona, ask for a room with a window to the street.

This hotel has no pretensions but supplies comfortable beds in clean rooms with a good central location. The breakfast buffet was fine. The place was just what we needed and I'm happy to recommend it.

We booked this hotel because it was near Julia Travel and we were picking up a tour from their office after 2 nights in Barcelona.
It cost about €25 to get to by taxi from the airport.
Breakfast was included and I let them know in advance that because of being coeliac I needed gluten free - on entering the room there was a basket with a full loaf of gf bread, biscuits, cakes and cornflakes with a small carrier bag to take them down to the buffet breakfast, excellent service indeed. The breakfast was fine but busy as the hotel was full, there was a selection of hot and cold food, tea and coffee and you could have as much as you wanted.
The room we had was at the back and was very quiet and comfortable enough. Tea and coffee was provided in the room, a safety deposit box and free wifi.
The morning we left they provided a pack up breakfast as we had to check out early.

This was quite a find in Barcelona! The hotel is located a mere 5 minute walk away form Plaça Catalunya which makes it very convenient to come and go from and to the airport and go everywhere in Barcelona by metro or train. The price was a pleasant surprise given the location and the quality. Nothing too fancy but all the amenities you'd expect were there. Clean rooms, good breakfast and free wi-fi. I'd definitely stay there again!

Centrally located hotel. Breakfast was OK, had a nice selection of cold cuts and warm stuff (scrambled egg, bacon, baked beans, mushrooms). Room was pretty small but clean. Service was OK. Although room was not ready when I arrived (1pm) I could drop off my luggage and got to the room later in the afternoon at 4pm. Free WiFi is provided as well as a safe in the room.

Room Tip: some rooms have balconies. mine was to the 'inside backyard' where your room can be seen by...
