Negatives first, the hotel is a good 15 minute walk from any metro station, the air con only allows cold air during 'summer months' which doesn't cover April, it was roasting in the building throughout our stay, add to that the position of our room at the front of the hotel with loud traffic throughout the night despite it not...

We arrived at Hotel Derby quite late because of a delayed flight (avoid Vueling at all costs), but luckily check-in is open until midnight, which is a massive plus. The man at check-in was helpful, and we were able to check in quickly. He gave us details for breakfast, the WiFi details and a map of Barcelona. He also recommended... More

Upon arrival we got a twin room instead of double, but on the next day they have changed it for double. The hotel was bit far from the centre, but in quiet area. The breakfast was quiet good with lots of choice.

Lovely hotel, amazing price. Only €180 for 3 nights sun-wed in a spacious room with a queen bed. Got a top floor for extra peace and quiet. About 8 min walk to metro stop, but can also walk to city centre if you're the walking type like us, lovely chance to see parts of the city. Located in the heart... More

Room was smart and comfortable with easily controlled heating and plenty of storage (which you don't always get!) Bathroom was kept spotless with thick white towels changed without us asking.

Stayed during for a big industry Congress when the room rates skyrocket (Euro 300+ p/night) which is not ideal but sadly stock standard practice these days. But when you pay these high rates you kind of expect the basics. The problem here is this venue advertises certain room amenities on third party agent booking sites that simply don't exist in...

First, note that this is about Derby Hotel and not Grand Derby Hotel, located opposite the street that seems to be a bit more upscale. It seems they share gym facilities. Rooms are OK and clean with nothing special except a design from 10-20 years ago. TV is small, wifi reception fine. Toilets have the advantage of having an actual... More

Nice rooms, nice staff ... free wifi in the room, tv, good breakfast, close to the center of the town. The view from the room on the inner side is bad ... but you can survive that for that price. :) I would reccomend the hotel for others.
