I have waited FAR long too long to write this review but that is where quarantine has helped - I have time! So to cut to the chase, we have been back to Europe twice, stayed in Autograph collection hotels and other upscale Marriott properties. None have achieved the superb combination of location, staff, cleanliness, food, drink and attention to EVERY detail as the Barcelona Edition. El Born District is perfect. I spent a night on Las Ramblas at the Meridien prior to my wife joining me at the Barcelona Edition. I can tell you that Las Ramblas is something not to miss however for an unforgettable taste of Catalonia I would recommend El Born district. Just the morning espresso and evening cocktails enjoyed on The Roof that overlooks this colorfully alive part of the city, make it all worth it. The staff. I wish I could remember all their names. Every one of them seemed like a friend and familiar face after the 5 days we spent there. Funny story, one morning I spilled coffee on my wife on The Roof. Within minutes of retreating back to our room a staff member politely followed up and made sure my wife was fine and offered to take her clothes immediately to the cleaners. One of dozen examples of excellent, personal, above and beyond service. Do not miss the punch room! I never could find it so on day three I asked for assistance. It's actually very well hidden. The cocktails and local Catalan bar tenders were such a joy. Our room was always cleaned when convenient for us. No annoying knocks at the door at inopportune times. Upon returning you could tell someone concerned with fine details and personalized service had tended to our room. Suffice it to say we can not wait to return to one of our favorite European cities and definitely our favorite hotel. Thanks for everything! Rick Sukolics…
We had an enjoyable stay at the Edition, however, it was a slightly disappointing start. We arrived late morning and had a reservation for two rooms. I am fully aware that we were ahead of the 15:00 check in, but we asked staff if there was any chance we could check in earlier, even if it was for just one of the rooms. They told us that they would try their best and get in touch if we could check in earlier. We told them that we would sit at the hotel’s restaurant and confirmed contact numbers so they could reach us easily. I had walked past reception a number of times between that time and 15:00 but the check in agent did not mention anything about a room being available at any point and I therefore assumed that it was simply not possible to check in early. We proceeded to have lunch at the hotel restaurant. When I went up to reception at 15:00 and asked for our room keys I was given the room key to only one room. I explained that we booked two rooms. The associate acknowledged that and said that the other room had already checked in early. I informed her that that was not the case and that we were still waiting for both rooms. She then found the second set of room keys and said that her colleague would have tried to contact us but wasn’t able to get hold of us. That might have been the case but considering the fact that we hadn’t left the grounds and had made ourselves clearly visible to the staff at all times, it was extremely disappointing that a little more effort was not made. It would have started our trip on a much higher note. Overall, the hotel was lovely. The rooms feel new and looked after. The overall decor is on the dark side with little natural light in the corridors. The rooms have big comfortable showers and our room had a lovely little sitting area by the bay window overlooking the front of the hotel. Location wise, the hotel is perfectly situated for easy walking access to all of central Barcelona’s sights. It is next door to the Santa Caterina market as well as plenty of restaurants to dine at. The hotel’s rooftop restaurant has fantastic views but seating is limited and it gets very busy. The small plunge pool is more for effect than swimming but no doubt makes for a good cool down during the hot summer days. Breakfast, served at Bar Veraz was great. It is served a la carte and for inclusive rates, you can have anything you want. Everything was served freshly and to order. The only other thing that we struggled with, and I imagine this was more a technological issue, is that whenever I used the Marriott app to request something for the room, always stating the room number, by default it was always delivered to the main room on the reservation rather than the room I specified in my request. It was no big deal as we had rooms next to each other, however, I didn’t know that things were being delivered there. Overall, it was a good stay. Barcelona has a plethora of great hotels and although I would consider returning to the Edition, I would also be happy to explore other options. …
stayed here for a few nights during my last visit to Barcelona and enjoyed my stay. nice clean and modern rooms - best bit was the le labo toiletries!! I found the rooms quite small which I didn't really enjoy (we travel internationally so we end up bringing larger luggages instead of small carry on sizes) and found the room to be cramped having two large suitcases in the room great view for the rooftop breakfast is nice
Nature meets modern. Outstanding views from the rooftop where I had my morning tea. The Edition hotel is located in upscale el Born neighbourhood. Surrounded by a lot of shops. Unfprtunately I was travelling to work so I didn't try a lot of wines. We tried their restaurant for two night and food was nice, fresh and healthy. I liked my gold mirror in the room:) Thank you.
I am in the middle of my stay and have been blown away by the staff. They have gone above and beyond to provide us with excellent service. I honestly can’t believe the things they have done for us. Tony Alvarez has gone out of his way to make sure we were pleased following a noise complaint. Anna changed our room to make sure we wouldn’t have the experience again. Seriously the best hotel stay ever! Thank you Edition team for making this a memorable vacation for my wife and I.
