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

Had a great week's stay here with family of 8, age range 63-23, everyone liked the hotel. Good location, facilities and friendly staff. Well sound proofed rooms and even when Barcelona were playing footie on TV slept well. Ate breakfast, lunch and dinner and would recommend restaurant, well used by locals, always a good sign. Walked to all sites apart... 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

Our first visit to Barcelona and we were very happy with this hotel. It's not 5 star but it's clean with nice rooms and our shower was gorgeous. Situated opposite the park and 5 minute walk to Las Ramblas. We had breakfast here and tried dinner, both very reasonably priced and nice. Would stay again

My husband and I spent 3 nights here on our first trip to Barcelona last month. The room was a good size, but the shower is so small, and the hotel noise was abundant. I woke up a lot in the night due to hotel noise. Easy access to the free wi-fi and lots of TV channels. The bed was... More

Outstanding location next to park, very close to old town and Metro station. Great little hotel, great value, super food and lovely people. Rooms simple but perfect for a 2 night family stay. Highly recommended.

Nice location and about only 5 minutes walk from the metro. Very friendly staff and bar staff in the restaurant. Didn't eat here but have heard it's good and seemed popular with people. Room and bathroom very clean and comfortable and cleaned daily.

I have stayed in this hotel two or three times a year for the past seven years. The rooms are simply furnished, the bathrooms in some rooms quite old but everywhere is always immaculately clean. The rooms looking out onto the street are definitely the best ones, the noise is cut out with the windows closed and the aircon works... More

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.
