Distance to la rambla: 3 min walk All kinds of stores in walking distance Hop on hop off station: 3 min walk They charge 2€ for the safe in the room. The key to my safe was missing. Staff are friendly and helpful. Mattress, pillow and blankets need to get changed, very old fashioned.

We booked a room online and as always we made extra sure it was a double, on arrival we were given our key to a twin room and when we said it wasn't what we booked we were told we could have a double room but with no view! They weren't kidding. A tiny room with a reasonable bed in... More

Located close to the harbor with easy access to walking to train stations, local tapas bars and strolling along the promenade along the harbor. It is located alongside a open square with trees and small fountain which we enjoyed. Breakfast was good and the staff helpful.. The air conditioning could use a boost. Definitely will stay here again.

The room was perfect; the location was perfect; and the staff was outstanding. Juan was as much as a tour guide as he was a desk clerk. His advice as to museums and restaurants was on target. Would recommend to families and couples!!!

From the outset, we were met by an uncaring front desk attendant. He cared more about his convenience instead of his paying guests. This is supposed to be a four star hotel, yet we had to wait two days for hot water, then it was cut off again on the fourth and last day of our stay. Not being able... More

Corner shop, bars and tabac in the square the hotel is located on as well as it being a 5 minute walk from the harbour, gothic... More

Medinaceli is a great deal. Strongly recommend. It is centrally located in the Gothic Quarter a few short blocks from La Ramblas, at the Eastern end of La Ramblas as it heads toward the beach and promenade. The Dressanes metro (green Line 3) is 3 minutes walk. I had a 3rd floor room which had two little balconies, one off... More

UNFAIR! Day 1 9 p.m. Friday. Tired after many hours driving I check in at Medinaceli and get a room on “ground zero” behind a door just back the concierge desk and once I enter…wow I am little kid again, back to the seventies!
