“Id look for another”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This hotel is not that bad, but I wouldnt stay there again.

I was there 2 nights. The room was fine/nice - comfortable bed, decent amoutn of space. The lobby and reception was nice. The location was very good. Pretty central. The people working there were very nice

A number of small annoying things add up to make me rate this hotel a 3/5.

Room was too hot - I had the AC cranked (granted it is November but it was hot) and it barely did anything and it was very difficult to fall asleep)

There was no iron in the room - I was able to borrow one from reception which was nice

Breakfast wasnt that good - please add some fresh fruit

Expensive!!

There is no fitness center - this is not a tiny hotel, one would expect them to have a fitness center...

This stay was excellent! I booked thru hotwire so didn't know what hotel i was going to get but i was very pleased. On arrival my mum and i were allocated a double room. However they did say we could upgrade to a twin for an extra €7 per night. We were delighted with the room we were given. Spacious, very clean, top floor with a balcony. I found the staff to be very helpful and accommodating.

The hotel was a 10 minute metro ride from catalunya place with the metro station being only a five minute walk from the hotel.

The only criticism of the hotel was that the restaurant wasn't open on weekend nights. However, there were plenty of eateries within a ten minute radius of the hotel.

The R850 bus to montserrat was only a five minute walk from the hotel.

I really enjoyed my stay here.

We stayed at the Zenit Borrell for just one night in October.
It was in a fantastic location, really easy to get to from the airport using the metro system. It was also just a few metro stops from La Ramblas (main area with restaurants etc).
We also planned to visit the Camp Nou stadium and that was also only 10mins away.

The hotel itself was very clean and smart looking, we were upgraded on arrival to a better room - which was a really good size, nice and clean with a big bathroom.

The staff were friendly and happy to help give us directions to the different places we wanted to visit.

Would definitely recommend this hotel for it's brilliant location.

We arrived very late ( past midnight after my awful map reading skills...) but were still welcomed at the hotel. There is parking at the hotel (very narrow spaces!). The room and bathroom was a good size with plenty storage space. It was quiet in the evenings, and had good air conditioning. The hotel is near a metro station. It took us about an hour to walk to Sagrada Familia.
I would recommend this hotel to others.

Just come back from 3 nights at the Zenit Borrell. Had a great stay, breakfast is more than adequate, with plenty of choice & was enough to see us through the day. We found the staff very helpful, especially helping us to book tickets to the Sagrada Familia, which I would recommend as the queues are very large. We booked the tickets the morning of the day we wanted to go & there was no problem.
We also ate at the hotel one evening having the set menu, can highly recommend it at just over 10 euros for a 2 course meal.
It was in a good location, which was 10/15 mins walk from the train station, so didn't have far to drag our cases, we also managed to walk into Barcelona every day, & we aren't very fit.
Thanks Zenit Borrell really enjoyed our trip.

The hotel was only a short walk to the metro and other bus stops. The hotel was clean and tidy. Our room was a little small but we did not think badly of it. The staff were all very friendly and made what would have be an average stay a lovely one. The breakfast was good offereing a little variety, we only needed something to fill us before exploring the city. One evening we decided to eat out at a place we had seen whilst scrolling through trip advisor. It was called 'The venue steakhouse' and whilst their trip advisor page appeared too good to be true it most definately did not let us down. The comments are all accurate. The food was amazing we both had a steak and couldn't finish as the meat portions were huge. Definately worth a trip if you are ever in Barcelona. (The address is 68 Carrer Casanova)

Zenit Borrel is a good hotel but not execellent. Room was narrow and I need to pass near the bed to go on my side. Breakfast was enough but not various, every morning was same stuff. Metro stop is to 5-10 minutes from hotel. From the window I saw buildings and the terrace for breakfast closed between them. The bed was mushy
