Have just returned from a three night stay and thought the hotel was fantastic. When looking to book a hotel for Barcelona we were not sure where to stay but after reading the reviews on here we decided to book the Andante and i am extremely pleased that we did.

The hotel is in a perfect location, close to Las Ramblas and only a couple of minutes from the lovely Marina with a good shopping centre. The rooms were very clean, spacious, modern & quiet. The view from the rooftop pool is incredible and is one of the hotels best aspects.

Staff are all very helpful and nothing was ever a problem. Breakfast had a good selection.

Would return to this hotel again without hesitation and look forward to our next visit to the beautiful city of Barcelona!!

Had 3 nights in Andante, good mid range hotel. Super Staff, any questions they did their upmost to answer. Room was modern, clean, basic. Hotel location was good. Safe area one block from Colom Monument, and La Rambla and easy access to the Metro and Funicular from Parallel Metro Station. We prebooked breakfast and all 3 days had good buffet selection, hot and cold, bread and pastries. The only downside was the roof terrace and pool area. Both are very small. The picture of the pool on the website with the guy swimming shows virtually the whole pool, it doesn't extend more than half a metre either side of the photo. Other than that great choice for a stay in Barcelona

We've just returned from a two night stay and we're very impressed!
The hotel is in a great location, being only two minutes from La Rambla and five minutes from the beach.
The rooms are modern and clean, and the rooftop pool and terrace give fab views over the whole city.
It's worth paying for breakfast, which is buffet style and offers everything you could ever want.
The staff on reception we're extremely helpful and gave some great advice on how to get around and what to visit.

Very clean and modern. Staff very friendly and helpful. Location is excellent. Nice breakfast courtyard with plenty of space. Showers amazing. Only issue would be perhaps slightly noisy because of other rooms closing heavy doors which vibrates into your room. Great views of the city from the rooftop pool. Definitely will be back

Stayed 3 nights in September. This hotel is very clean & offers everything as advertised. No coffee maker in room. Thought the breakfast was overpriced. Staff were friendly and helpful. The location is ideal. Very close to La Rambla.

In reference to the coffee maker, the Andante hotel doesn’t have this service in room, anyway we offer some vending machine in the loby with a great variety off produts available 24 hours.

About the breackfast, we regret that the breakfast has not met its expectations. We try to offer a varied breakfast with top-quality products at a cheap price.

We stayed at the Andante for three nights in August. Great trip for sure. The hotel is small and stylish. Our room was simple but comfortable and it came at an excellent price for central Barcelona. It's a quick walk to the Gothic District, to the harbourfront, and to tons of great bars and shops. The beach is definitely walkable as well.

The staff was also really great. They were helpful with recommendations and they tolerated our broken Spanish.

Realistically, the hotel would rate a four out of five. It's the rooftop pool that ups the rating. The view is unreal and the deck is just an amazing place to hang out. It's really something special.

Highly recommended. You won't be disappointed by this choice.
