“Pleasantly surprised. Great location!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

I stayed here for work and was pleasantly surprised by the trendy, chilled out vibes.

The public areas are pretty small but perfectly formed - great attention to detail. The bar is small- doubles up as the breakfast area in the morning.

Breakfast is nice - I just grabbed a few take out bits and took it to the beach.

Rooms are small but again nice and trendy. Wifi it strong throughout the hotel.

Receptionist and bar staff were all really pleasant.

We used the main area for a meeting during the afternoon and they were perfectly accommodating.

This part of the city is nice - I'd return in my own time.

The staff are really helpful at the Hotel 54. There is a manned bar until 0000 every night which makes great cocktails and tapas. You can take this either in the lobby, on the patio or on the roof terrace.

The room itself an internet ready TV for YouTube-ing at your leisure. The free WiFi is also a great asset. The bathroom has a great shower although when cleaned our towels were only replaced once over our three night stay.

The checkout time of 1200 also gives you a bit more room for the turn-around.

Barceloneta is a fantastic area and the hotel has great bus links just outside. The 64&39 will take you round to the other side of the marina, and the 59 will take you up Las Rablas and to the Plaça Cataluñya. Hotel 54 is also a 3 minute walk from the beach and there are a plethora of decent bars and restaurants at your door step. I would thoroughly recommend buying the "Hola BCN" transport cards which give you unlimited public transport throughout the city.

It´s a nice hotel, localized very close to the beach but it´s within at least 20-min-walking distance from the Ramblas and Plaça de Catalunya, so consider this hotel only for summer.
The interior is kinda futuristic and functional, the air conditioning is really faint and quiet (but efficient) thus it´s impossible to catch a cold =)
There´s a rooftop with a nice view of the Port and Barceloneta.

Room Tip: close to the beach but it´s within at least 20-min-walking distance from the Ramblas and Plaça de Ca...

We recently spent a total of six nights at Hotel 54 - at the beginning and end of our trip to Spain. As others have mentioned, the hotel enjoys an unbeatable location. Everything is within easy walking distance of the hotel including famous sites, excellent restaurants and the sea.

That said, there were a couple of negatives that made for a less than enjoyable stay.
First of all, the noise was the worst we have ever experienced in any hotel and that includes hotels in Europe, Asia and North America. The walls between the rooms have no sound insulation and others' lives are yours to share... Also, there are many hard surfaces, so sound just bounces off everything. Some nights we were awakened three or four times by people slamming doors, dragging wheelie bags down the hall, and talking - sometimes at three or four in the morning.

Our room faced the marina, and was very clean. The bathroom was OK but the original shower head had been replaced by a sort of hand-held unit which meant crouching in the corner to take a proper shower. The soap was the size of a communion wafer and one of our bath towels actually had a hole in the middle of it.

As for the breakfast, it was unimaginative and very basic compared to what we were offered in other hotels we stayed at on this trip. In a country that is famous for wonderful food, this breakfast buffet offers processed meats and cheeses, wrapped croissants, watery scrambled eggs, cold baked beans and tinned peaches and pineapple. Even the orange juice is made from crystals. Some mornings we just had coffee. Certainly, nothing was worth paying an extra supplement for, which sadly we did.

Would we return to this hotel? Probably not, unless management addresses some of the obvious problems.

We stayed 6 nights at Hotel 54 and I would thoroughly recommend to the moderate traveller whrer you will get grat service, excellent locatio and modern facilities. This is the BEST neighbourhood to locate yourself fro a stay in Barcleona. It is home to the waterfront distrcts, the Barcelonetta Mercato and an amazing range of traditional tapas bars and quite funky bars and restaurants. I could live in this barri!

Room Tip: Don't worry abot breakfast- there is so many optins at the doorstep

The hotel is in an excellant position near the breach and also to the rambla , the stuff is extremlly friendly and nice , the view is nice for the front room which i didnt stay in , nice modern clean room for the cost . But the only issue is that walls are really thin so u will actually live with your neighbour noise espicually if there is a baby or deeply in love couples like i did

Just back after 4 night stay in this hotel - was a bit aprehensive after reading some reviews but found it to be a gem of a hotel. Room 402 on 4th floor looking out at marina - fantastic view of city. Very friendly staff - lovely clean room - bathroom was brilliant. Will go back without a doubt. No sound issue whatsover and hotel seemed full. It is a small hotel and perhaps this is why it works so well.
