“Convenient location. Clean, modern hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

This hotels is very conveniently located 1.5 blocks away from the main drag of Passeig de Gracia on Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, between Eixample and the older part of town. Sights in Eixample is an easy 10-15 mins walk (Casa Mila/La Pedrera, Casa Batllo, Block of Discord, etc.). Sight on the Ramblas and in Barri Gotic and El Born are also 10-15 mins walk (Placa de Catalunya, La Boqueria Market, Palau Guell, Columbus Monument, Cathedral of Barcelona, Museu d'Historia de Barcelona, Palau de la Musica Catalana, Picasso Museum,etc.).

For sights further away, the Metro stop Passeig de Gracia is 1.5 block away. It is a main stop with three different lines passing through. Sagrada Familia was about 10 min ride away, Montjuic (take bus #150 to the Montjuic Castle, Fundacio Joan Miro, Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, CaixaForum, Magic Fountain, etc.) and Park Guell (bus #116 takes you to front entrance of partk from Metro stop Joanic) was about 15 mins away. However, be aware, that there are some rather long underground passage ways that connects the three lines.

We were in Barcelona for 6 days and mostly walked around, except for going to Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, and Montjuic by metro/bus.

The only place that might not be very convenient is if you're planning on enjoying the beaches in Barcelonetta, as it's about 20 min walk or at least a few Metro stops away.

The rooms are modern and clean. We were in room 117 (i.e. on the 2nd floor), facing the street and sharing a balcony with the room next door. Being so close to the street, the traffic noise was rather loud if the balconly door were open. So we kept our door closed most of the time and had the AC on. Also, we could hear/feel a faint rumbling whenever the metro passed beneath us. A room higher up might be quieter both with regards to the traffic noise and metro rumbling. The bathroom had a large frosted window that opened onto the central well of the building - good for lighting and ventilation. The beds were very comfortable.

We took the Aerobus from the airport to the Placa de Catalunya and walked about 4 blocks (10 mins) to the hotel. Once again, very convenient if you don't have a lot of luggag (we only had one small one each). Be aware that Hotel Indigo sign is not very obvious from the street. While we were checking in, a lady that we'd seen earlier going in the same direction as us, had passed the hotel and had to call to ask exactly where it is.

We were lucky enough to be able to use reward points for our stay, but had to pay additional City Tax at checkout. It's minimal 1.44 euros a day, but just thought I'd mention it so people might be aware.

We didn't eat at the hotel, so can't comment about the food.

Overall, it's a wonderful hotel in a central location, I'd definitely stay here again if we visit Barcelona again in the future.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

traveling on business i booked this last minute via ihg site. Was weary as i have stayed in a few in the centre of Barcelona only to be disappointed. But this lived up to the description. Firstly I was given wrong directions from my colleagues hotel the St Moritz which is literally 250 yards around the corner, reception from there said right and right so off i went into the night ended up wandering around for 30 min till eventually i called the Indigo. The lady on reception was an angel, realy patient with a panicing middle aged lost traveler,so thumbs up she even offered to come and find me. Anyway panic over, got there ok, Room lovely, new modern, all amenieties even free juice water and coffee, bathrobe, slippers and nice toiletries and plenty of towels. i was leaving in 8.5 hrs so not much chance to look around the hotel. But i will definately use this place again for 85 euros. Now the walls seems a little thin and my neiighbours were a little noisy, liked to bang doors with no regard to next door. Next time i want a room in a corner with no noisy folk.

The Indigo Hotels belong to the IHG but this was my first acquaintance with this brand. The hotel is centrally located but quiet in a way. It is an old building with the original frontage, the original doors and most of the rest of the building and the rooms skilfully renovated. Decorations abound and are modern in a subdued way. Modern furniture, modern bathrooms. The hotel is very new, just a few months old and you may find a number of trainees working in the various departments. Shaped mirrors in the room lend to the impression of modern elegance. One may hope that the heavily lackered furniture will stand up to intensive use. A small fridge is cleverly hidden in the curved desk. As often in hotels the ventilation shaft is too small for the fridge, which makes the fridge less effective and costs more in electricity. Considering the quality of the hotel its price is very reasonable. Breakfast is not included. It is quite good and can also be enjoyed on the outside terrace. The better rooms have a street view and sometimes even a balcony. Helpfull staff. One negative point may be that when the original enormous rooms were made into smaller but still sizeable hotel rooms extensive use was made of 'dry-walling' which gives poor sound insulation. Noise from other rooms also gets into your room when a dividing door to the next room exists. A pity because such doors are seldom used and do not boost productivity at all. Just hope for decent guests

We stayed for three nights at the noted hotel and all what can I say that everything was upto our expectations. we have been offered an upgrade from regular room to executive one due to unavailability of regular one. the staff were professional and offered assistance for any question related to our city tours. hotel room was clean with design matching photos offered through booking.com.
Location was in the middle of the city center but little far from touristic area which is rambla and barri Gothic streets, so commuting is necessary through Metro since Passieg de Gracia statiob is just one block away from hotel. we did not have breakfast at hotel since we decided to have it in the city due to the varieties offer ed there, so I cannot judge it. As conclusion, the hotel is a 4+ star hotel from my point of view.

What a fantastic experience. The hotel is very central, beautifully decorated and the food is outstanding! I was not expecting such a marvelous little jewel in the heart of Barcelona. Definetely worth recommending.
A very complete Buffet Breakfast, comfortable and spacious room. Even an outdoor pool which is great for the warm months.

Room Tip: I had a Pool view and enjoyed the quiet and calm of the interior.
