“Girlie Hen Break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Four of us visited Barcelona and stayed here. It was a lovely hotel and very close to all the important places. Staff were very helpful in advising best places to visit/see. Including a flamenco night which the reception staff booked for us including the taxi. Nothing was too much trouble and this included drinks to our rooms on our return in an evening. There was a slight mix up with our room booking but they offered to remedy this as soon as we checked in and also gave us a bottle of bubbly in compensation, which we enjoyed on our last night. Lovely first break to Barcelona for us all with the hotel making our stay !

Located on a corner of L'Eiaxmple neighborhood, this small but very comfortable four star hotel is a good option for its location, a few blocks from Paseo de Gracia street and Plaza Cataluna, and reasonable price (119 euros including breakfast internet rate ). I choose a midsize room to be more comfortable after walking all day. The breakfast, as usual in Spain, is plenty and hearty, you can indulge you with all sorts of fruits, hams, cheeses, breads and pastries to get the energy necessary to tourist the rest of the day. The hotel's restaurant serves a tasty quinua and zucchini soup, which we tried it the first night. The front desk was selling tickets for the classic Barca - Real Madrid game at Euros 550 the cheapest place. We refuse to pay this exorbitant price and luckily, the day before the game, we found tickets in the internet at normal price Euro 165.

Before starting the hotel comments, let me say from our experience at least, all the internet hysteria about crime in Barcelona seems to be well overdone. No doubt there is theft and larcency in Barcelona as in any big city but we felt totally safe in the area around the Hotel Dante as well as in other areas of the city. As return visitors we did not spend a lot of time on the Ramblas or at the most visited sites, but we were out and about in taxis, metro, trains, walking, eating in sidewalk restaurants and local bars and did not feel any different "vibe" than you do in any European city. Maybe it is the unique nature of the oft reported fake policeman and mustard stain street scams that generates a high fear response, but under no circumstances allow this to stop your visit. Just use the same common sense that you do anywhere including your home town or country.

That said, we had a fine stay at the Hotel Dante. Price was (very) high compared to other places in Spain but not out of line with those in world class cities. Excellent and well served breakfast, front desk staff competent and helpful, although the night clerk was on his own and overworked. Did not seem to be any server or diners in the hotel restaurant the one time we looked in, but with a good selection of bars and cafes in the area you really shouldn't be dining at the hotel. When looking for places to eat, turn LEFT as you go out of the hotel, walk a couple of blocks, turn right and you will find many small places serving tapas or full meals.

Good WIFI and there is a terminal and printer just inside the restaurant that we used for boarding passes. The hotel will get you an airport cab, if you are just going somewhere in town there are lots of cabs passing the door all the time. The metro station is about a five minute walk. Passeig de Gracia train station is a 5 Euro cab fare. If you are looking for some comfort and are interesed in staying in a real neighbourhood rather than right on the Ramblas then this is a good choice.

Room Tip: Our room was at the rear and looked out at a church and some apartment blocks. We heard no street o...

Thank you very much for your review.

I would like to particularly thank you for your comment about safety in Barcelona. I couldn't agree more. It is true that pickpockets are a huge problem in the city, but not more than other european cities. We try to warn our guests at their arrival, so that they don't trust people stopping them in the touristic areas where most of this pickpockets take place. As a hotel, we are pushing the authorities to work in new solutions for this problem, and we hope that soon we will start seeing results.

We hope you come back soon.

don't love neighborhood, but it is quiet, and fairly near transportation. The staff was great.
The Wifi was good...TV good..bed is hard.....

Only problem, taxi was told our flight left terminal 1, he dropped us off there, and we had to get a bus to terminal 2. Luckily we had allowed plenty of time...

We stayed at Hotel Dante prior to a cruise. We arrived at 10:00 a.m. after a delayed flight from Los Angeles. We were allowed access to a room even though it was well before the noon check-in time. The hotel is modern and well-appointed. The room was very clean, although there were a few stains on the carpet. Wi-fi was free. Room service of coffee/tea was free. We ate in the bar/lounge. The menu was limited, but the food was fine. The hotel is situated in the midst of everything, perfect for strolling. The strong point of the hotel is the staff; efficient, friendly; always pleasant. We would definitely return.

We recently completed a 21 day cruise and stayed an extra 2 days in Barcelona and chose the Hotel Dante as our hotel.
The location was perfect for touring Barcelona, the hotel quality was 4 star, the staff quality was 5 star and we have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
Be careful of the taxis, the taxi we booked for the airport had 9 euro's on the meter at the hotel, the final cost was 10 euro's over what we paid on arrival in Barcelona and what the hotel estimated the cost. Taxis in Europe appear to have no ethics. buyer beware! Use the airport coaches.

Room Tip: Inner rooms are quiet.

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for your review.

We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. I will tell all my colleagues working at hotel Dante that you rated them as 5 star staff. Your review encourages us to keep improving our service. You are right that some taxi drivers in Barcelona have no ethics, and that is why we try to call from the hotel to taxi companies that we trust. If we find out that a taxi driver is overcharging our guests we will never call them back.

We hope you come back soon.

Best Western Premier Hotel Dante in Barcelona is a very good choice for those travelling for business.
It is well located, not far from the Ramblas and Paseo de Gracia.
I stayed in a single room, very confortable bed and installations.
Staff is frindly and the hotel has a luggage room to store your stuff if needed.
Breakfast is ok and good internet connection for free.
Excellent choice of restaurant and tapas bar nearby. Barcelona is a great ciy to walk or bike, I strongly reccomend it.
