“Good small hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Shortly can be described as a great hotel with perfect location, great service, tasty breakfast, modern bathroom, nice views from the top terrace. The main drawback: while sitting in the room, can hear the noise from the street.

Reasonably priced hotel in a fantastic location, but with paper thin walls. I imagine that if you had quiet neighbours it would get an excellent rating, so pot luck really. Room was good and clean, however furniture showing a lot of wear and the walls were heavily marked. Due to price and location I would probably stay again and give another chance.

The location is great. The service adequate. On the other hand, the small room being acceptable, the very small and uncomfortable bed do not do justice to everything this hotel has going for itself.
The overall price make up for the shortcomings and the excellent location allows you to explore Barcelona at a reasonable budget

The hotel is situated in Barcelonetta, walking distance to the metro station (in Barcelona, you can go virtually everywhere with the metro). It is an excellent alternative for both going to seaside and visiting the city. The hotel is clean, with nice staff and good services. A good quality-price ratio

Love this hotel - walking distance to beach, bars, museums, harbor, bus stops, everything.
Night life is awesome, views, as for noise...close the window. Clean hotel, has a wonderful staff.
Nice little outdoor café connected to the hotel, shops and markets everywhere. I'll make this my home base next time.

Room Tip: Good views from higher floor and quieter.

Okay as other people are saying - yes the hotel is small, but who cares when there is so much to do and see in Barcelona!! It is perfect for a holiday if you want to be near the beach/harbour and the City! The nearest metro stop is a 5/10 min walk and the beach is a 5 minute walk away. It is surrounded by many shops and typically Spanish back streets with great little shops/bars/tapas/restaurants. Me and my boyfriend had the most amazing time here and the hotel has really comfortable beds, big hot showers and a great variety of breakfast. The staff - especially a young waitress were so pleasant and she helped us so much with how to get to various places and what to visit. Barceloneta has an amazingly chilled out atmosphere :)

Just returned from 9 days in Barca.This was our 5th visit and we decided to stay in Barceloneta for a change but surprisingly they are few hotels to choose from in this area. I only looked at the reviews for Hotel 54 after I had booked and was fairly apprehensive to say the least. However the only downside was probably the inside sound proofing and the poor wardrobe/storage space. Our room - 205 - was on the corner at the back and although initially disappointed at the lack of a view it was more than made up by the complete lack of traffic noise at night, The front rooms although having a lovely view of the port overlook a very busy pavement and road.
The bed was big and comfortable and sheets changed almost daily. Room cleaned every day and towels always changed on request. Quirky bathroom with glass walls. Could do with a blind on the bathroom window though as at night street light shines in. Room itself pretty basic with minimal hanging space and very small shelves but no drawers. Wall mounted TV, free safe and WiFi access. Very efficient air conditioning. Could hear people coming and going in corridor and furniture being moved above and below.
The reception bar area was smart and well kept but the breakfast buffet squeezed into a corner. We only had breakfast here on 1 day . Was only 9 euro but not great and better going to one of the nearby cafes. There is apparently upgrading work going on at the moment so this may account for lack of breakfast space. Bar and reception staff lovely and always helpful.
Best thing about this place is the location - 2 minute walk to the lovely beach, buses right outside for 10 minute ride into the city and easy walking distance to the Born district.
it would be nice for this hotel to have a bit of life injected into it as bar area and outside space was nearly always empty and the surrounding places were buzzing.
*** Generally I would rate this hotel as Good and not Average but cant do this on the above rating system

Room Tip: Corner rear facing rooms looked biggest and probably the quietest
