“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the HCC Lugano in June 2013. This hotel is centrally located near two metro stations, so it was easy to get around Barcelona. You can reach many attractions by foot, but it is far enough from the action, which is good if you want some peace and quiet at night. There are still a lot of restaurants around if you prefer to eat near the hotel.

The room was well-appointed and spacious enough.

The staff is amazing! They really care about you and they make sure you have everything you need. They speak really good English and some of them even speak French (we speak French, so it felt good to know some people were spoking French too in case of an emergency).


Enjoy your trip to Barcelona! This city is fabulous, and the locals are really friendly.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise from the street and better views.

We stayed here for 5 nights in August. Just a 5min walk to the Poble Sec metro station which was able to connect us to anywhere we needed to go. The hotel was very modern and clean with a strong wifi connection (this is something we struggled to find with many of the hotels we stayed at on our 4 weeks trip to Europe). The staff were all extremely helpful again this was the best customer service we received on our entire trip. Definitely good value for money. Also when we arrived at the hotel we settled the bill and the following the day the staff recognised us when we returned from our day out and they told us they accidentally overcharged us and refunded the money. I was very impressed with this as they were very apologetic and I would expect most places would just wait for you to work it out yourself.

Modern spacious room with safe, frig & WIFI  but no microwave or coffee maker & no facial tissue. Laminate flooring is a nice touch.
Centrally located with easy access to the Metro subway.  Convenient to Catalunya, Gothic Cathedral La Seu,  Gaudi's Sagrada Familia cathedral,  La Rambla, Arenas de Barcelona, (shopping mall converted from the bullring Arenas), Cortes Inglais dept. store.  Don't miss Park Guell to see more of Gaudi's modern but gawdy designs. It's a bit of a walk from Lesseps Metro station so wear comfortable shoes. Strangely, signage is lacking - go to right when exit Station.  Look for T road to left which goes uphill & at far end, there's an escalator.

hotel is really easy to get to - get the bus from El Prat get off at Pl Espanya and its a short walk to Hotel on Avenida Para Lel.
I was upgraded to double room on arrival and the room had twin beds TV wi fi and a great modern bathroom.staff are really friendly and helpful - breakfast is expensive though but there are cafes nearby where you can get croissant and coffee for 2 euro.
Its a short walk to the amazing fountains at Pl Espanya there are bus stops for city tours , underground so no problems getting around.

We stayed here for 6 nights in July. Rooms are spacious, unusual for a city hotel. Very clean, huge comfy beds and bathroom was well equipped with good shower pressure. We stayed in room 305, facing the front, but with virtually no street noise at all. An occasional rumble from the underground, but nothing to keep you awake at night. We were asked if we wanted to move to a quiet room but felt there was no need. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We were given maps and information about where to visit and locations. Marcel on reception deserves a special mention, however, all the staff were very good. We were surprised by a bottle of cava in the room to celebrate my birthday. Lovely touch. Breakfast was excellent, just what is needed. A good selection of cereals, fruit, hams, cheese, bread, pastries, etc, also if you want there was a cooked selection you just had to ask for. We caught the Aerobus from the airport to Placa de Espanya for 10.20 euros return each. This stop is a 600m flat walk away from the hotel. Make sure to check the terminal you are flying out of on the way back as there are two separate buses - A1 for Terminal 1 or A2 for Terminal 2. As we rarely use public transport, the hotel was in a good location to walk everywhere. Only downside we found, although you could get room service, there was no restaurant for dining in the evening, although to be fair, there are lots of little places in the area serving good food. Turn left from the hotel and walk down to the Basilica, or turn right for Frankfurt and also up to the Bull Ring, lovely restaurants on the top floor. All in all, a hotel I would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Room 305 was quiet, end of the corridor and away from the lifts. No traffic noise but quite noisy i...

Great location, clean spacious rooms and friendly helpful staff. I would highly recommend opting OUT of the breakfast, as it wasn't very good and minimal choices especially at the rate of 16 euros. Otherwise great hotel, and I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Be aware that on the first floor you can feel and hear the metro train rumble. However, wasn't...

Yes, the rooms are small (thanks to tiny Barcelona typical building width) so it won't conform to 4–star requirements.
But all the other aspects are there — magnificent personnel, silent air conditioning and cozy carpeting in the room, excellent location and sleek modern design (without any showoff decorations, one must admit). Room service is unnoticeable, but thorough and proficient.

Good WiFi — both in lobby and in room, works flawless. Has Ethernet outlet in the room also.

Bed mattresses are a little bit too soft and jelly-like-shaky, but that's me being really picky.
