“Form without function?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The hotel has a modern design aesthetic which fits well with Barcelona. Our room was on 5th floor overlooking street.
Good features: the staff was helpful, and printed and scanned documents for me.
The room was quiet, only sound was some road noise. The location was very close to the subway and airport transportation. The breakfast was nice with a good selection of sweets, ham, hot food and breads.
Not so good: The bath/shower was a modern disaster. It was very narrow tub, surrounded on 3 1/3 sides by glass. The shower head was a wand that sprayed water ever where.

There is not much you can say about this hotel, one word describes it all- perfect. Very professional and helpful staff, well designed rooms, flawlessly clean. Not mentioning its perfect location!! Loved it

This lovely little modern hotel is in a GREAT central location - easy to get to by the airport bus and easy to get to the metro from right outside the hotel. I found the design to be refreshing and luxurious on a small budget. The service was more than accommodating to our every need and had suggestions from areas to visit to restaurants. The hotel bar is a nice place to relax as is the rooftop pool - wow the views! The noise from other rooms slamming the doors was a bit much in the mornings but earplugs resolved any issues with that. Yes, the shower was interesting, and I thought the reviews must be exaggerating but not so! Just remember to turn the water on half blast and you won't soak the entire bathroom! The lighting wasn't great either - had to put on my makeup in the bedroom with the window open for light, but honestly it wasn't that big of a deal - all in the design. The beds - two singles pushed together - were not very comfortable, but I found this VERY standard in Europe, so just go with it.
For what we paid and the location and design, I could not ask for more - B Hotel - thumbs up!

It is perfectly located. Very close to airport bus and Metro. They style of the hotel is very modern, which I normally like. However, there was no cosy factor at all. The lightsources in the room were very poor. It was hard to find a light where you were able to use mirror and put make-up on. The condition of the shower was bad, water all over the floor. There was a sort of an annoying sound from the bath tub. We pointed it out, but it was not fixed. You will hear the traffic, but it was not too bad.

We (the kids) used to pool one time. Very nice to have that available. We nice view up there and you can relax. But there are limited number of sunbeds. The bar in the lobby is not staffed, so I now understand why this hotel is only three stars. I can recommend you to stay here, but it is not a place with wow factor.

Room Tip: High floor. Facing the back.

My boyfriend and I visited Barcelona for 3 nights and stayed in the b hotel. Staff really friendly they checkednus in 3 hours before allowed check in time which was great. This hotel is really modern with a fantastic view from the roof .The bedrooms are a good size, our bed could have fit 5 people! It was huge! The roof has a swimming pool and loungers although we couldn't use them in October! The rooms are clean and modern , they do need some tlc i.e a lick of paint, general DIY and a new shower head! But we didn't stay in the room and we were only there to sleep so generally a good stay, metro is very close by ,l3 green line takes you right into the heart of Barcelona ( ramblas) and is €2 pp per ride. Bus stop to the airport is over the road also costing €5.75 pp ,take about 20 mins. We would stay again :)

It's a nicely design hotel, but...using the shower is a nightmare, I understand you don't mind that your housekeeping staff has loads of cleaning to do after people take a shower, however I personally like to walk on dry floor after the shower, instead of having water absolutely everywhere and there's no way to stop it. Your bathrooms deserve A for design, but F for practicality.

Wifi was a nightmare, I asked the reception to change my room after I could use the Internet only in the toilet... it wouldn't work anywhere else in the room, my room was upgraded to Superior and the reception staff was excellent, however the Wifi was just a bit better than bad, still didn't manage to comfortable work (same goes for ethernet connection, just as bad).

On the positive note, again, the staff was absolutely excellent and very helpful. The rooftop with infinity pool was a nice addition. Location very good for both - tourists and business travellers (easy access to the airport).

For some it may be a bit noisy, the hotel is located on the crossroads of two very busy roads, but nothing one couldn't deal with.

Overall I would recommend it, just fix the Wifi and showers.
