“Goed en centraal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Had 2 nights on a business trip in this hotel.
Spacy room with a good twin bed. Fast and free wifi.

Bathroom was clean but I never figured out how to shower without soaking the floor.

Airport-hotel by bus was one stop and 15 minutes. Busstop is 100m from hotel.

Would definetely consider the hotel with friends and family as well.

Dear B-Hotel Guest,

Thanks for sharing your opinion with other travellers.

You are right! Figure out how the shower works is one of the adventures we offer to our guests! However, there are instructions explaining how it works in the same bathroom or you could have called at Front Desk and our receptionists would have been pleased to help you.


We hope you include our hotel in your plans if you ever come back to Barcelona.

Sincerely,
B-HOTEL TEAM

I have spent three days in this hotel with my 13 years old son.
The location is quite good: right above the metro station, a shopping center (inside the arena) and not that far from the center (you can actually walk to plaza catalunya in about 30 minutes)
The rooms are comfortable with design style. The only thing is the traffic noise.
Breakfast is very good and big, but if you do not buy it from the reception it costs you more (14 euros directly at the restaurant, 11 at the reception). Price is high but it is worth because then you almost do not need lunch.
I definetely recommend it

Room Tip: Ask if possible for a room wich does not overlook the main road (I do not know if there are any

Dear B-Hotel Guest,

Many thanks for taking the time to write such nice comments about our hotel.
We really appreciate it.

All our rooms are lovely, but it is true that the ones facing the street are more lively. To avoid the noise we have another ones facing the backyard are more quiet and intimate.

We celebrate that despite this, you had you and your son had a pleasant stay with us.

It was a pleasure to have you at B-Hotel and looking forward to welcome you back!

I stayed at B Hotel with my friend in August and we absolutely loved it. The location of the hotel is really good, short bus ride from the airport and next to a massive shopping mall and 5 mins walk from the magic fountain. We found it easy to get around with taxis, buses and walking. The hotel itself was lovely and as nice as it looks in all the pics. The pool is undoubtedly the best feature, limited sun loungers and obviously in August it was really busy but there was a big pool bar with chairs too. We couldn't really fault the room other than the lighting was a bit dark and the floor wasnt that clean. Spacious rooms and beds were fairly comfy too. We booked a summer special which was really good value and included a cocktail and breakfast for every night we stayed. Breakfast was good and varied, the usual European buffet selection. We ate lunch by the pool a couple of times and that was good too. Overall we absolutely loved this hotel, location, value, and service was all very good!

Dear B-Hotel Guest,

Thanks for sharing your opinion with everyone.
We really appreciate your comment about our B-Pool, B-room and B-Must breaksfat.

Concerning the system of lights in the room, the hotel works with home automation, which allows different lighting scenes, and also does have independent reading lamps.
The lights system is offering a welcoming atmosphere to our guest, saving, at the same time the environment. (In the rooms there are instructions explaining how our light system works).
Nevertheless, your honest comments makes us feel proud of the work done on a daily basis, with the only aim of satisfying the needs of our guests.

And also we are glad that you have had such a general good impression of us.

We look forward to welcoming again at B-Hotel.

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.

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.
