The Gran Barcino Hotel was just right. The best part is the location, right close to a tram station that will get you all over the city. It is right off Las Ramblas, where all the action is, and close to the Cathedral, Picasso Museum, and great restaurants. The staff was helpful and the price was right. The room was... More

Rarely am I prompted to write a review so quickly after checking in to a hotel only hours ago, but if it weren't for the cool location, I'd give the Gran Hotel Barcino one to zero stars. Aside from the friendly staff, the hotel is far from grand in either size or amenities. However, judging by the incessant construction noise,... More

this hotel is in a brilliant location in the gothic quarter, it is clean, room's are of a good size, maybe ever so slightly dated, but marble floors and bathrooms meant it was still good, and it didn't bother our group of 6 23 year olds. Having 24hr reception meant our check in late at night was hassle free. Some... More

Stayed here 2 nights with a party of 15 on a football tour. Hotel is well placed for all that Barcelona has to offer, which is a lot.

I stayed here for one night and the hotel was fine. The location is good, being fairly equal between Barcelona Cathedral (not Sagrada Familia) and the sea.

This hotel is all about location, which is superb, everything else is secondary. If you have problem sleeping with noises around you, avoid any room facing the street as the balcony doors letting all sounds through and Jaime is a very buzzy street.

No self respecting traveller should stay at this hotel. We were given a room on the first floor.
