“Good stay at this hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

We enjoyed a good weekend at this hotel. The room was basic, but spacious and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was basic but plentiful in buffet style.The metro station is a short walk away allowing a good connection to the city centre. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Very good hotel in the quiet Mundet area of Barcelona. The staff is polite, supportive and always ready to help you. Rooms are nothing special, but clean and warm and excellent for the price. Metro station is just 5 minutes walking distance. There is a nice park next to the hotel.

Despite the relative big distance from the city centre, the hotel has very good public transport links and some attractions nearby (Tibidabo, Parc Guell).
Awesome buffet breakfast and nice clean rooms.
Reccomended specialy for young people

Its a real gem, this one! Clean rooms with basic but nice design, clean shower, toileteries, air con, mini-fridge. What more can one want?! Plus a really good buffet breakfast with eggs, cold meats and cheeses, toasts, croissants, Danone yogurts, drinks.... And all that for just 35 euros!
A bit out of the way - no shops or cafeterias around, nothing at all, actually. Might be a problem to somebody, but I personally didn't care. The metro station Mundet is just 5 minutes walk from the hotel

We had a superior room at the Agora ,you get daily maid service and a fridge The Agora is terrific value for money with good breakfast choices . Dinner has to be ordered 24 hrs in advance ,for what reason we did'nt discover ,good value at €9.50 per person . We are in our late 50's and found the hill leading up to the Agora a bit daunting after a full days sightseeing in the City. We found the staff to be friendly and efficient ,all in all an a very enjoyable stay .

Room Tip: If possible opt for the superior room ,they are located on the ground floor amongst the professors a...

We stayed at Residencia Ágora BCN three times in last 3 years and nothing has changed, all services are the same year by year.
It is a campus near Mundet underground station in a quite area. It is also easy to approach by night bus number 4 from Placa Catalunya at nights.
The building is new, modern and colourful. The normal rooms (cheapest) are simple furnished with a private bathroom. The beds are not side by side, but they can be moved in some rooms. There is no fridge in the rooms.
The staff is nice and helpful. Most of the guest are young people, who spend their holiday, so they are a little bit noise and don't care about other guests.
Breakfast choice is good.
Residencia Ágora BCN is recommended for young people, budget travellers and good sleeper.

Disadvantages:
Very noisy at night.
There are always water everywhere in the bathroom during take a shower.
Difficult printing facility.
Strange toaster.
There isn't any supermarkets near Residencia Ágora BCN.
