“Not quite as good as in the past.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

I have stayed at the Casanova before when it was part of the Rafael Hoteles group, and with the H10 takeover I thought it would be interesting to see the changes. One thing I do like is wifi is now free, which you used to have to pay for. However ... There are no comfortable chairs in the room anymore, only a small desk chair. The heating also seemed to be stuck on - really, really hot!
Not sure if I would stay again - the Villa Emelia looks a better proposition.

This hotel was simply Great!
The hotel was just a few blocks away from the 'Universitat' Bus stop and we were welcomed by helpful and friendly staff.
The room was spacious, clean and modern with FREE Wifi!
Mini bar included and the shower facilities were very impressive!
The Hotel is surrounded by many tourist attractions which are all within walking distance and there are lots of bars and restaurants to choose from.
Will be coming back again to this Hotel for sure.

Good location close to metro and short walk to Pl. Catalunya / La Rambla.
Have stayed in other H10 hotels previously and this one is a notch above in terms of style and comfort, Rooms are a good size with comfortable beds and a great shower.
Staff is very friendly and helpful.

This hotel is easy to find, especially when we took the airport shuttle bus into the city. The lobby is abit dark at night. Concierge staff very welcoming but no wi-fi in room, unfortunately. The hotel is close to some attractions. Hotel was clean, and modern. Not bad at all.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the street then you can get out to the balcony and enjoy the view.

You know... Hotels rates goes up and down very fast. Today rate for one weekend night was 65€.
Is a good hotel for this rate. Location is centric, but 14 minutes walking to Paseo de Gracia.
Hotel is nice, nice design, look like new.
Room is small, bed is small too.... Double bed around 140 cm....
Many amenities, good heating, good bathtub.
Staff is not very good, but I just want to sleep. Is enouht to give a room and pay for the room.
Few restaurants in this area if you want to go to diner out, but is ok at 10 minutes walking in a big avenue. Safe area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

We stayed at this hotel over Christmas and found it a good choice.
The location is near to the centre but sufficiently away from the tourist
places with some good basic cafes and restaraunts in the area.
The staff were very friendly and helpful - and in all it was a pleasant stay with
good clean room and nice facilities, breakfast and cheapish mini bar!!!
It wouldn't be suitable for families with children though.
The only complaint was that the aircon didn't work properly - though for us
and at this time of year it wasn't a problem.
Traffic noise could put some people off this hotel - it is on a busy road and
without aircon in the summer this would be unpleasant.
