Lovely little hotel, great base for exploring Barcelona with a lovely park opposite. We stayed one night and enjoyed drinks from the bar and exploring nearby, short walk to Las Ramblas, lovely receptionist who gave us directions etc. Shower wasn't up to much at all but ok for a quick, cold 'wash'. We didn't complain as just staying one night.

The location is great. Opposite a beautiful park and a short walk to Franca railway station for trains (renfe). The food is wonderful an although I didn't have menu del dia it seemed very good value and scrumptious food. I had a two course meal one evening and it was lovely. Being a solo traveller I felt very comfortable having... More

The only good thing about "La Ciudadela" is the location, a stones throw away from the old town. But even for a modest city Hotel, I would rank it definitely below average. The rooms are really small, the noise levels are high, as the Hotel is situated on an avenue, and the rooms are very poor equipped. No Refrigerator, Phone... More

The young lady on reception was pleasant and helpful, allowing us to check in at 9.30am as we had moved from a nearby apartment. The room was very small though obviously not expensive. The only window was sited behind the shower, would not close properly, and outside it was a very hot inner courtyard. By contrast the restaurant was excellent,... More

Just returned from 5 days with La Ciudadela with my partner and we loved it. The hotel is small and old fashioned, but everything is well kept and very clean. The location is excellent, just a 3 minute walk to the metro Arc de Triomf station. The shopping heart of Barca is 10 minute walk away, and of course La... More

The hotel is in a very good location in the center of Barcelona, close to beautiful parks and on walking distance from attractions. Rooms are OK, especially considering the price which is moderate for Barcelona center. But we found it very difficult to sleep. The beds are extremely hard, the pillows almost non-existing. At the restaurant terrace below, diners were... More

Hotel was really easy to find and excellently located next to the park and the Arc just outside the tourist madness of the centre. Easy walking distance to both the beach and Gothic area of the city as well as having some decent local places to have a drink and eat in

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighborhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
