Fairly nice, quite, safe neighborhood. Towels and toiletries are very nice. Beds are very firm but they all have been for my comfort. Breakfast was very good and fresh. Lobby had a strong perfume odor. Room was musty smelling at first but got better as we turned the a/c on

Hotel was very nice. Rooms ample, albeit small. Buffet breakfast was good, although there were gnats flying all around the table and landing on the food, which I did NOT like. It is in the middle of the city, it seemed. Close to a couple of main thoroughfares but not convenient to beaches or any tourist sites. Its a few... More

Having never visited Barcelona I was worried the location would be a little far out. How wrong could I be! The hotel Derby is close to many transport links and is also very quiet which is great for a bad sleeper like me. On arrival the staff were very attentive and checked us in quickly and provided us with a... More

Great hotel in Barcelona. Our stay here was realli nice. Room was really spacious for a city hotel, chocolate on the pillow a nice touch, everything was well equipped.

This hotel is set back from the busy areas such as Ramblers, but not too far that you need to Taxi all the time. I stayed in a Junior Suite, mainly because I wanted a balcony to relax on after a day of hitting the beach and museums. Unfortunately the picture showing the loungers on the balcony (Including the lighting)... More

Hotel rooms are good and spacious, breakfast is basic continental, or a fry up if you want. On the outskirts, but ok for access to all the main sites. No real bars to speak of locally, so you have to travel into the centre for any kind of nightlife. The nearest tube is Hospital clinic, 15 minute walk, and the... More

It is a standard hotel. The comfort is not bad but they presented us with two joint beds notwithstanding we were a couple. Not what was expected. The room is not very cosy. Only one pillow for each person - it is not enough. We were present with a very strange bedroom. The parking lot has no access to the... More
