“Very. Enjoyable Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

If you can stay at this hotel with some kind of special offer, you will have an excellent deal. It is well located, a few minutes walk from the Sagrada Familia, with lots of shops and restaurants close by. A bus stop right outside goes down to the sea, and buses along the main road two roads down that link to the train or Aerobus to the airport. The common areas are spacious and very tastefully decorated. The staff speak all languages and were extremely helpful. The room was spacious, functional, air conditioned, includes a fridge with free bottles of water, a proper power shower, and fantastic memory foam bed. And wifi is free, and works! There are also free computers to use downstairs. The restaurant manager is a star and does excellent value lunches, with a very novel presentation. The only thing I could fault was the lack of an available iron on site.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter.

My daughter and I stayed at Confortel Bel Art for a 3 day short break. We loved the hotel and found the staff very helpful and friendly. The room was very clean and more than adequate for our needs. It was quiet at night and we both slept well. I would say it was excellent value and we would definitely stay there again.
The location is perfect for getting around Barcelona as it is a five minute walk to the nearest metro station, which is very handy. Also it is walkable distance to cafés, bars, supermarkets, restaurants and La Sagrada Familia.
Thank you to the lovely staff who were so kind and let us leave our luggage in a secure room on the last day until our evening flight.

We stayed at this hotel on our 4night stay in Barcalona, We had arrived an hour before checking in time and were allowed to leave our bags at reception for an hour as our room was not ready.

We had our room keys given to us at around 1.30 and went straight to the room to take a shower, The room was very basic for a four star (Room 135) I have stayed in many better hotels.

The lounge area was nicely decorated and modernised but the rooms were very basic. We were handed a wifi passcode upon arrival but the signal was very poor we ended up using our vodafone 4G signals whilst on our stay there, air conditioning was very poor, think the fan was on its way out.

The hotel was situated on a rather steep hill, not so bad to walk down but a bit of a hefty walk after a busy day of touring the city.

The shower had no shower curtain and only had a glass panel but their was a massive overflow of water after taking a shower, so the bathroom would be swamped afterwards. Room was serviced daily, the housekeepers changed the bedding but did not do anything else from what we could see.

Their was no ironing facilities, after asking reception they mentioned that their was a service charge for washing and ironing. I did not need any clothes washed, I just wanted to iron, which I would've happily done myself,

Did not eat at the hotel as we dined mostly by the coast every evening and eat out whilst on our tours during the day so can not comment on the food.

Average hotel - Will look for somewhere different next time

My friend and I recently stayed at the Confortel Bel Art, and found the hotel to be modern, clean and stylish, just what we wanted for a weekend away.

On arrival, my travelling companion realized she had left her phone in the taxi from the airport, and the hotel staff were very helpful in ringing the taxi company to try and get it back. We knew Barcelona's reputation with missing belongings so we weren't hopeful, but the hotel managed to locate which driver it was, and arranged for it to be driven back to the hotel at no extra cost to us.Needless to say were were impressed with the taxi driver's honesty and the persistence of the staff.

Unfortunately late on our last night of the trip, we received some extremely sad news which meant we needed to fly back home as soon as possible. Rachel on the desk helped look for last minute flights for us, and brought tea to our room as a gesture of good will. She was extremely understanding and calming in such a distressing situation. She booked a taxi for us to leave very early the next morning.

Overall the staff were brilliant through the whole trip. On a side note, the location is only a 2 min walk to the Alfons X station it is so easy getting anywhere in Barcelona, we just bought a 10 journey ticket for the weekend.

My boyfriend and i stayed at the confortel bel art hotel for 3 nights and absolutely loved it.The staff were very helpful and friendly and everything was so easy. we got there at 9am on the a sunday morning, check in took less than two minutes and we were shown straight to our room, there was no waiting around, they gave us the wifi password upon checkin and the wifi was so quick and we had no problems with it for the whole stay.the room was very clean and nicely presented, the safe was easy to use and really useful and the bathroom was lovely. they replaced our towels, changed the beds and replaced complimentary bottles of water everyday without fail.

The hotel was about a 10 minute, easy walk from the sangada familia,and metro, about 6 metro stops to barceloneta beach and about 4 stops to las rambles and central town although there were lots of resturaunts and bars really nearby. the interior was really modern and very clean.

check was at lunch time on the wednesday but they kept our bags in a safe room so we could go out for the day and then collect them in the evening on our way to the airport, this was all very quick and easy

I would say this hotel is perfect for a couples holiday , a business trip or older family .. i wouldn't really recommend this for younger families as theres not much for kids, and is quite a quiet hotel.

we had such a great time in barcelona and this hotel was perfect i would really recommend it and would definitely stay here again!

A friend and I stayed here for the weekend at the beginning of June, and we had a lovely time! The staff was very friendly and even helped us to book and print tickets to attractions in Barcelona, and the room was very clean; however, it was not anything extremely fancy. Since we were only in the room for a short while at night while we were sleeping, this didn't matter to us. They did have extremely comfortable beds, and we never heard a peep out of anyone the entire time we were there! The hotel was only a five minute walk or so to the nearest metro station which I highly recommend using, especially if you are going to be visiting multiple attractions in one day. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was that for the price of the hotel, breakfast was not included, and the breakfasts they offered were very expensive - 9 Euros. We wondered around and found some cafes to eat at in the mornings that were cheaper which I would also recommend. I also wasn't crazy about the area of town the hotel was in. During the day it was fine, but my friend and I arrived after midnight and spent 30 minutes wondering around an area that didn't seem that safe. The hotel did have doors that locked after a certain time, so if we came back after 10 or 11 we had to be let inside the building. I'm not sure if this should be comforting that no one could get in who wasn't supposed to, or concerning that apparently there was a need for it. Overall, it was a nice hotel, and if I got a good deal I would return!
