“Oasis of calm in frenetic Barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The Hotel Jazz is perfectly placed for a Barcelona break.
Just one block back from Las Ramblas, and close to the Pl. Catalunya (where the airport bus arrives and departs from), the Jazz has everything on its doorstep.

The hotel itself is only rated as a three star but I think this is a huge oversight - it's a four star at the very least. The hotel is modern and clean, with oversized beds, generous bathrooms (with bath and shower), in-room safe and free wi-fi.
The rooftop pool and bar was just fantastic and a great spot to unwind after a day of sightseeing.
Despite its central location, there was no noise around the hotel.
I'd read previous reviews about (a) the crime in Barcelona and (b) people having their luggage stolen from this hotel.
We were vigilant while out and about, but in terms of hotel security there were guards at the door ensuring guests were welcomed and safe.
This hotel was the best we stayed in on our recent trip to Europe and we will be back. I can't recommend it highly enough.

My husband and I stayed at the Jazz from July 6-9. It was a good size room and is a good place if you are staying a couple of days. It would not be my first choice for a long term stay. Very helpful staff and great location. It is close to lots of stores and a 30 second walk to Starbucks.
One negative that I need to bring up is that the walls are pretty thin so you hear everything that's going on in the corridor outside your room.

I had made a reservation at another hotel and was intrigued by all the positive reviews for this property. I am a hotel snob and we stayed 4 nights here, so HAPPY we changed hotels. The location was great, the room was a nice size, the pool was actually nicer than the 5 star hotel rooftop bar we visited in Barcelona and the drinks were better. GREAT VALUE!! Frankly, Barcelona has so much charm and historic value in the architecture if you are looking for that in a hotel I think you would be wasting your time.

Very impressive for a 3 star. Modern hotel with nice staff in a good location. The bedroom was great - huge bed, good air-con system, brilliant black-out curtains. We totally lost track of time and didn't wake up until near lunch-time every day - loved it! We went to a few roof top bars and think that Jazz has the best pool. Although don't come expecting to be able to get your 50 lengths of exercise in - none of the pools we saw were full size, not very deep, but fit for the purpose of relaxing. Good view of the city from the roof-top too. The hotel jazz provides towels for the pool side so don't worry about bringing any more than one for the beach! The only thing that I didn't think was great was the bar food - it was OK, but there are many better options nearby.

Not too far from ramblas & placa cataluna, easy walk. The reception was great always helpful. Looked great and was super clean. Definitely top of my list next time I go to Barcelona. If I have to say something negative, perhaps lacks charm, it's a modern hotel with a modern look & feel, not particularly memorable in its style.

What a lovely hotel - clean, very comfortable with great air conditioning in the stylish rooms. We couldn't understand why it is only 3 star! We didn't try the breakfast but the roof terrace and swimming pool were fantastic after a long, hot day seeing the sights. Brilliant views! The staff were very helpful and friendly and we would highly recommend Hotel Jazz to anyone intending to spend a few days in this wonderful city.

Just stayed three nights at Hotel Jazz and we were very happy with our accommodation their. We got a bit lost the first day after we got dropped off in Placa Catalunya but once we found Hotel Jazz we were right. The hotel and the rooms are exactly as shown in the photos on their website. Great air conditioning which is essential at the moment. Breakfast buffet offers a wide choice and is good value. The rooftop pool is a good relaxing space with a nice bar area. We were on 2nd floor but had no trouble with street noise at all. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
