Two nights stay in comfortable and largish rooms opposite pool area so we only had to open room door and step across corridor and we were at the pool which was small but ample and our 10 and 12 year old enjoyed it as did I. Bathroom was smoked glass and a door gaps and so not enough privacy there but it seems to be the trend these days. Bed was comfortable and I had a good sleep although people coming back late at night opening and closing their doors frequently was annoying. Staff were pleasant, polite and helpful. Location was great for getting to a number of places and there are plenty of bars and restaurants very close by. I'd stay again for sure.

Excellent smallish hotel in nice neighbourhood of Barcelona. Easy walking and transport links to the city from here as well as numerous restaurants and bars/cafes. Friendly and informative staff and rooms are modern and fresh. Breakfast was also top quality.

Stayed for 2 nights with my (now) fiancée. Rooms were modern and clean. Rooftop pool was great to cool off. Breakfasts were good with a wide selection. Staff were very friendly and helpful. On the first night they quickly helped when a nearby room was playing loud music at 4:30am. They also had good recommendations for local restaurants and helped with reservations. Would definitely stay again when we return to Barcelona!

We were attending a wedding in Spain and we booked 2 different stays at the K+K Picasso between May and June 2022. The 1st one was for 3 nights with no breakfast and the 2nd was 4 nights including breakfast. Rooms Both were clean and the beds were very comfortable. You get the usual amenities (shampoo, shower gel, etc...) with a safe in every room. You also get slippers and towels for the pool. The cleaning ladies did a good job. Both rooms had a very small balcony and offered a view on the main street. Location The hotel is centrally located and multiple landmarks are within a walking distance. Ciutadella Park is directly in front of it while the beach is about 15 minutes walk. Breakfast There were a lot of choices, everything was good from the mini pastries to the jamon iberico. Recommended. Pool Located on the roof and is enjoyable. Recommended during weekdays due to its small capacity. Front Desk: It was a hit and miss, not all front desk staff are on the same level : some were efficient while others definitely needed more training. On the bad side : there were 4 maintenances/repairs during our stay (2 electrical maintenance and twice 2 elevators were out of service). 1 repair of the elevators took several hours to get done, we had to climb 4 floors with bags which was inconvenient. Overall, sadly my rating of 3 stars is due to the multiple downtimes/maintenances and the below average front desk experience.

POSITIVES: - Clean room and comfy beds. -Polite staff -Great location- in the gothic quarter near lots of bars and restaurants. -Nice breakfast. NEGATIVES: -The bathroom was only separated from the bedroom with a glass pane, so when you or your partner are doing your business it is not a pleasant experience at all! - The latch on our window was broke so we could hear noise outside fairly loud in our hotel room. - We we’re awoken at 3AM to what screams of TERROR (no over-exaggeration) from a woman. We phoned the reception and told them which room it was, and we heard the staff say that our room had complained about the noise, which put us in a vulnerable position! The screams went on for about half an hour. It was a couple arguing after likely a wild night out. We did not have a pleasant sleep that night at all. -The hotel was understaffed greatly so wait times when checking in/out and asking questions at reception were large. -There were rarely enough towels for the pool area so it was difficult to get hold of one. -There was no bar on the rooftop. So you either had to go down from the 5th floor to the 1st to buy a drink, or phone down to the bar for them to bring you one up, but because they were understaffed it often took a long while to receive a drink. -The air conditioning in the room made a dripping noise so it was difficult to sleep through in the night time. We were pleased that the hotel was clean and comfy and it was central, but because of the negative experiences we had we would not stay again.

Dear Jordan, Thank you for taking the time to post your review of our hotel on Tripadvisor. Naturally, I am disappointed to learn of you rating your stay only with 3 stars. All of us here at K+K Hotel Picasso are very proud of the number of positive contributions that our guests left for and I am sorry that you did not feel the same way. It is no secret that there are shortages in the labor market but we have managed to hire new team members to cope with this incredible bounce back of occupancy so shortly after the restrictions where lifted and are now fully prepared for rooftop service and quicker check in & out. Jordan, I would like to thank you for highlighting the parts that you enjoyed and we do hope that we will have the opportunity to personally welcome you back to Barcelona. Kind regards, Marina Riess General Manager

This hotel is located in the very walkable El Born district. There are lots of restaurants, shops, and art, and shops offering hand made items nearby. The Picasso Museum is close by, as well. City and tour buses stop right in front of the hotel. There is also a rooftop pool. The hotel offers breakfast and has a bar. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Questions via email were answered in a very timely manner. Our room faced the street and was spacious.

We booked 2 rooms & visited May half term. Lovely hotel, very clean, great roof terrace & pool which the children enjoyed. The only downside was the lack of bar staff. Took 45 minutes to get drinks as only one person running the downstairs bar area and delivering to the roof. Not their fault, a result of covid I guess. Would return!

mixed review here....Service was fine. Room was fine, small, odd frosted glass wall to for the bathroom made it so that you couldn't go to the restroom in the night without lighting up the entire space and disturbing your partner. The breakfast was pricey compared to going around the corner to the many other better options . The biggest issue i had was scheduling our covid test. To enter into the US it has to be done within 24 hours of travel. I explained that to them multiple times and they assured me that we would be fine with the date and time they gave us that was about 35 hours before travel. I confirmed again before scheduling because it was also very expensive. $230 euros for the 2 of us. The day of the test the nurse comes to the hotel which yes is very convenient. I checked with her again...is this timing ok? the US right now says it needs to be within 24 hours and she also told me yes you will be fine. Well we were not. Almost missed our flights and had to spend additional funds. I feel like we were scammed and it ended our tip on a sour note. reached out to the hotel and they said no refund since we agreed to the time they gave us. YES we did after they assured us it would be fine. =(

Hi there, Thank you so much for taking the time to pay forward your feedback... both the good and the not so good are incredibly valuable to us as it is, of course, the best way for us to know where we need to do better. I present you our sincere apologies for the negative experience with covid testing you lived while staying with us and we have already spoken as a team in order to take corrective actions where needed, so we can avoid similar situations to happen in the future. Please accept my apologies and do not hesitate to contact me personally if you wish to further discuss your experience. Thanks, Marina

What a perfect place to stay and explore this amazing city! Just walking up to the doors of the K+K is already lovely with the giant columns, tree-lined street, and a clean appearance. The receptionists were more than friendly and the interior is gorgeous with a fancy bar area, comfortable seating, an outdoor terrace, and the breakfast buffet. We had the Picasso’s Corner room with 2 balconies looking different directions and we loved the fresh air. Also, the doors really help keep any sound out at night and the bed was excellent. We enjoyed wearing our bathrobes up to the rooftop to swim in the pool and sunbathe. The views are best from up top! Lastly, the location is hard to beat. Directly next to Ciutadella Park, 20 minute walk to the best beach in Barcelona, 12 minute walk to the cathedral, and so much more. I even walked to Sagrada Familia from here. Would LOVE to come back here in the future!

This hotel is not right in the middle of everything, but it is only about a 15 minute walk to Plaza de Catalunya. Still, lots of restaurants, shops, museums, etc. very close by. Very easy to catch a taxi out front. Rooms are smallish as are the public spaces...but how much time do you spend in your room when you're in Barcelona? We arrived at 8 am after an overnight flight from the US and they had a room available; for an extra 15 euros we checked in early. This was really nice as we were exhausted and in need of showers. Breakfast is good; nothing out of the ordinary for European hotels. Staff is friendly and helpful. One drawback is that our room faced the courtyard and there was a fair amount of noise during the day. Someone in the apartment building that shares the courtyard played music with the window open--good playlist though! It did get quiet at night.
