“Good 3 star hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We chose this hotel because it was the best price - quality ratio we could find, plus it had a pool and was still within walking distance of several major attractions.
The room and bathroom were fine although the pillows could have been a bit more substantial, but that's a personal preference. The bathroom amenities were great and the everything was cleaned well on a daily basis. The pool was also a lovely addition - it wasn't ideal weather but we braved the terrace one late afternoon and it was well worth it.
We didn't have breakfast here and the wifi was a bit hit and miss but that wasn't overly important on a holiday.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for a short break in one of the best cities in Europe.

Stayed here for four nights and we were very pleased, the hotel is clean and classy rooms are fairly large and modern. The hotel is situated in the middle of everything the Diagonal station is a short stroll away but still away from the hustle and bustle of la Rambla so not very noisy. The only thing that was annoying but this has already been said by another reviewer is that the room we were in didn't really have any natural light so I felt confused by what time it was, and the room needed more light. Reception staff were helpful we didn't have breakfast but it looked very nice. You can get a taxi from outside the door and we easily navigated ourselves around with help from the top 10 things to do in Barcelona book. We bought a T10 metro ticket not a 3 day as it was cheaper and it lasted us the whole trip. Be prepared to queue for the Picasso museum and other popular attractions, and for a longtime. We ate in a place called Tragaluz one night which was expensive but very special and visited Hard Rock ( Hard to get a table here) We got a taxi from the airport It was about 30 euros but it was 10 euro extra as it was a Sunday, it only takes about half an hour. Ladies there is a hair dryer in the room which was great. The shower was powerful and the beds comfy not much in English on the tv but we didn't watch it much. On the whole we had a fab time and would definitely recommend this hotel.

The Astoria Hotel is a beautiful hotel located close to all attractions in Barcelona. The room was very comfortable and clean. The employees are very welcoming and helpful. Fine restaurants are within walking distance as well as shopping and major sights. I have to also say that the employees were very honest. My parents left a wallet in their room with money and ID's. After a week of leaving the hotel for another destination they realized they were missing the wallet. They called the hotel and the wallet with all the money and ID's was returned. We will definitely return to this hotel.

The hotel is very central and clean. We were very pleased with this hotel, we booked the superior room and it was good value. The people at reception were always very helpful.

We walked everywhere from this hotel.

My only issue would be that the wifi is not free. I find this disappointing and most hotels nowadays have this included.

You get 90min per day but once you log in the clock starts ticking so even if you log off you will still be running out of time. After that you can buy more time.

Otherwise you can pick up the free wifi at the reception. Note that that this is a different account and you need to cancel the one in the room before you can log on.

A cab to the airport on Sunday night was €35.

I stayed 3 nights with my Friends. Clean and accessibility is satisfying, but not that safe. One of my friend got stolen her bag at the cafeteria of the hotel in the morning. I found that this hotel is not liable for pickpockets and cannot protect guests from pickpockets. So you should be careful by yourself.
But other than that, I was satisfied with hotel condition and overall mood of the hotel.

This hotel is about a half hour walk from la ramblas.
I personally prefer this area to la ramblas as it feels much safer and abit more classier.
I booked the superior room hoping to get a view and terrace/ balcony.
I did not realise when booking though, that the hotel has only one room with a terrace, which is used on the website to represent their superior room category- so please be aware of this as it is a little misleading.
Our room however, on the third floor was spacious with a seperate sitting area. This was a little awkward to use though as it was almost like an entrance hall and not very comfy.
Upon speaking with the staff, I was shown two alternative rooms on the 8th floor- a duplex and a room with a conservatory. Whilst I preferred the living spaces in these rooms, they had not bring refurbished and were a little old and smelly to be honest. The rooms on the third floor appear to have been completely refurbished compared to the eighth floor.

The room was immaculately clean and the bathroom finished to a very high standard. Albeit the furniture is very basic.
The daily cleaning was very good and unobtrusive.

The pool on the roof is very small but to he honest we didn't use as too cold, but we did sit on the roof with a drink and a cake one afternoon to take in the view of the city.
To summarise-
The Astoria is a truly lovely building, exceptionally clean with extremely polite and helpful staff. It was relatively quiet for a hotel in Barcelona. I would recommend this for couples wanting a peaceful place to stay.
If I could change a couple of things about this hotel, it would be to add tea and coffee making facilities to the superior rooms and for all the rooms to be of the same decor standard as the one we stayed in as I would be very disappointed if I had been allocated one of the rooms that hasn't been done yet.

The astoria is in a GREAT location in Barcelona, close to Paseo de Gracia, Rambla Catalunya and lots of great shops and restaurants. It's a unique location that allows you to walk to Plaza Catalunya or to Touro Park or Gracia neighborhoods. The hotel is clean and recently rennovated and has an excellent breakfast buffet. And the rooms seem well-priced, a good value. One problem, my room basically has no window... just a window facing an interior corridor with almost no natural light coming into the room. This is especially bad if you are coming from many time zones away and are trying to adjust to a new time. Also, free wifi is limited to 90 minutes, but you can purchase a day pass if you need to work.
