“too secluded”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

The hotel is very far from the metro station. And the rooms are very gloomy as no external light can be had. The breakfast selection is OK and the staff is very welcoming. I prefer staying near plaza catalunya during my next visit to Barcelona.

Bad points:

- localization is a bit far from the nearest metro station (~12 min walk) and a bit too far from the real city center.
- ~the breakfast is yummy but the service is slow

Good points:

- the rooms are perfect:

• free power sockets for laptops and smart phones for 2 guests (and nicely placed near the bed and the desk)
• free Wi-Fi (good speed)
• comfortable bed
• quite: no ventilation noise, no noise from the busy street outside, good isolation for corridor noises
• easy to use safe
• nice TV
• mini bar (you can even fit your own small bottles of water you bought outside) it could be even better with ice machine in the corridors but was not really needed thanks to the mini bar
• convenient desk
• additional blankets and pillow
• big enough
• perfectly clean
• fancy


- the breakfast was yummy: Spanish specialties and also very good croissant. every thing is fresh
- the staff is pleasant, professional, polite, helpful and smiles!
- you can buy public transport tickets at the reception desk and also rent bikes

Room Tip: room 402 was perfect

Our visit to this hotel was highly enjoyable. We arrived here in mid-November hoping to enjoy a weekend away at the team at the Amister Art Hotel did everything they could to help us achieve this. We were reccomended the bus tour so did so and loved being shown around the city. The best part was that there was a stop on route directly outside of our hotel. The Aero Bus stop was also very close by. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and happy to see us. We went to a lovely restauant one the first night after arriving late into the city. We didn't want to walk far so looked around the area and came across The Venue Steakhouse. It was a small restaurant which served quite simply the best steak I have ever eaten. We will be returning to Barcelona if not just to visit here again.

We stayed here for 5 days. It's in a quiet area. It's a 10-15 min. walk to the subway station (plaza espana). It is a nice hotel, great breakfast and helpful/friendly staff. The room is clean but our room was too hot. We tried adjusting the heater but did not work. If you want to be in a quiet area this hotel is for you. Overall, we had a pleasant stay here.

A good smaller hotel with fine rooms, Molton Brown toiletries, good continental breakfast. No restaurant or bar this time of year but has a nice rooftop bar in the summer. Friendly and attentive staff, nice choice.

Convenient base for seeing the sights (though not as centrally located as some others)...had a nice boutique feel to it and great customer service. Both the room and bed were good sized and I loved having windows that actually opened to the streets below. My only issue with the room was in the bathroom. The shower was "enclosed" in glass, but the partition only reaches about half of the length of the tub, which results in lots of water on the floor.

We spend with my wife extended weekend in Amister Hotel and we really enjoyed every second of it. We were greeted at reception by friendly staff who showed us nearby attritions and recommended public transportation. We took breakfast at the hotel and it was delicious, also room services was quick and enjoyable. Hotel gem is terrace with pool on 8th floor with magnificent view of Barcelona. Center of Barcelona is 20minutes walk away or 15 minutes via Metro (due to walk to closest Metro station). We are definitely coming back :)
