“Second visit and still great choice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

I stayed at the Aparthotel Atenea about 10 years ago and decided to stay there again for a four day trip after Easter. We were delighted that we were actually up-graded to larger room for the stay. The standard of the room was high, very clean with a useful kitchenette. However I have to say that the smaller room I stayed in many years ago was perfectly fine too. Don't let the location put you off staying here. It is really easy to get to all the sights using the metro (nearest one is Les Corts). There is a very handy large department store behind the hotel with a large supermarket in the basement, so you can stock up on Cava and Spanish foodie treats. Our (reasonable) deal didn't include breakfast. To be honest it was nice being able to do this in the hotel room, although I recall the buffet was good on our previous stay.
The staff were delightful, helpful and friendly. I really should have given the hotel 5 stars, but unfortunately we had a gang of French football supporters staying in the rooms next door (as the football stadium is nearby). They were pretty noisy and kept us awake in the early hours. (Thankfully their team didn't win or it might have been worse!) Apart from that I would congratulate the hotel for keeping their standards up over the years! Recommended!

We wanted an apartment with easy tube links to the city centre, not too near the busy tourist spots but not too far either. The green line (L3) tube is 5 min walk away from the apartment, and this is the line that connects with Las Ramblas, for example.

The staff were exceptionally helpful and kind...humoured our attempts to speak Spanish, but had excellent English skills to hand when needed! They supplied stamps for our postcards & ordered a taxi for us which arrived promptly for our 3am departure!! Having a 24 hr reception desk is so useful & it means you can always get assistance should you need it.

The rooms themselves were large and comfortable, fully serviced daily, with free WiFi which was great. The little kitchenette was perfect for making teas/coffees etc during the day. We didnt try the hotel restaurant but tried lots of cafes near the hotel which sell delicious pastries & freshly baked bread!

I would definitely stay here again!

Good location (less than 5 min walk from metro station towards downtown)
Reasonable restaurants and shops nearby

Kitchen very poor
Room cleanliness needs to be improved
Room size is good for 2 but bad for 4

It has been a real good choice. In a very beautiful area of Barcelona, 1min walk to the green subway station (with 2 euros you can be directly in BCN center , ramblas.. port) Room very comfortable with an extra King size bedroom and a very usefull kitchen area (with Nespresso coffee machine). Not used the restaurant even if pricing was not so expensive for a 4 star hotel.(around 30 euros)

The cityhotel site for booking let you choose a lot of Extras on your choice (i.e. parking , Cavas , extra time for check out..)

NOTE: with advanced booking can have a very good rate !
I will be back in this Hotel if needed to come back to Barcelona.

Been there in FEBRUARY 2013.

The hotels rooms are fab with separate living, kitchen and bedroom area. Clean and spacious with everything you need .... Except an iron!

2 minute walk to Metro that takes you direct to Las Ramblas in less than 15 minutes, and it's a short walk to the Nou Camp from the hotel.

Great hotel in a decent location.
