“Very nice and professional staff, but a few issues.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

We cam to this hotel for a much needed break. For a four star hotel,it is okay but there were a few issues. As usual, I'll get to the point and list the pluses and minuses.

Positives:

Good location - short subway trip into the city, close to a decent shopping mall.
Lovely professional staff
Decent rooms, although a little on the small side however we moved into a triple room ( see negatives for the reason why )
Clean and well presented
Wi fi free, however it is not fantastic connection.

Negatives

Not the hotels fault but it is very close to a nursery so I'd avoid if you don't like waking up to screaming brats.
Very very thin walls. We had to move because we could hear everything some especially noisy people next door to us were doing, including very loud Skype calls in the middle of the night, presumably to their kid.
The breakfast is pretty sub standard. Not worth ten euros, pretty simplistic and no skimmed milk.
The gym is akin to a torture chamber, tiny little room with no windows. Very cheap equipment. I imagine only those who really need their exercise fix could handle it. I doubt it gets used much aside from hardcore fanatics.
No coffee making facilities in the room - this was a great disappointment.

So all in all as much as the staff were great I'd go somewhere else next time. It certainly wasn't hotel Transylvania, but I imagine there are better establishments.

I stayed at medium hotel for 5 nights with my sister and mother. It was a nice stay and the hotel was good. Good service, clean room, good location but the wifi was very bad... I will choose the same hotel next time!!

I travelled to Barcelona for one day to watch FC Barcelona game.
I stayed in a single room (it actually was a single room, wiht single bed). It was small but comfortable since I only actually slept in the hotel. The bathroom was also normal size although the toilet and the low sink were in front of the bathtub and it was quite weird to get in the bathtub.
Starting with the positive things about the hotel. I must admit the room was very clean and comfortable (stayed in a single room), the hotel is within walking distance (200m) to the Sants Metro and Train Station. Also the hallways were freshly painted meaning that the hotel was going a renewal. The negatives, first of all the price for a single room. It was quite high compared to other hotels I have stayed in the nearby (Sants) area. I am sure that the other hotels at the same time had higher prices, and I can now explain why. If you plan to stay in this area there are better hotels but not always with the best price. Secondly, the breakfast was poor. There was not a lot of products to choose from and there was only one waiter which he couldnt handle everything. When I came down for breakfast most of the food were finishing and nobody filled up the empty plates. And lastly, there is no room service or food at the hotel after midday. The restaurant closes after 3pm and if you want to eat something after that time you have to leave the hotel. It is the first time I find this kind of a situation in a 4-star hotel.

This hotel is well placed, not far from the metro which makes exploring Barcelona very easy. It is well decorated, small and 'tidy'. There is a small restaurant attached with served breakfast - disappointingly there is no bar and no way of getting even a drink of water in the hotel once this is closed. It closes just after lunchtime 3ish. The rooms are very clean but small - there is a small fridge (mini bar) in your room but not much choice within. There is no facitilty to make a hot drink - coffee - in the room or anywhere to order one. There are no ironing facilities. The salon is great for relaxing in the evening however there is no facility to get tea/coffee/water/beer/snacks.

We stayed at Medium City in Barcelona for four nights and five days. We had a Deluxe Room with twin beds and it was well cleaned daily, had comfortable beds, and kept a modern and sleek design. The bathroom was large and during our stay, the bath towels always freshly changed each day. The service given to us by the concierge, the front desk clerks, the bellboy were all excellent. There are two MAC computers in their Lobby that you can use anytime of the day. We did not have breakfast though because we were out early in the morning to join various day tours. The location is very accessible to Barcelona Main Station...we even carried our luggage from the hotel to the station....it was workable.
I highly recommend Medium City Barcelona.

We have stayed a couple of times in this hotel, last time during x-mas 2012.
The hotel is quite and still very good placed to visit Barcelona. Just 150m away (through a small walking passage) there is a Metro station.
Not least, the hotel is clean and comfortable. We stayed in a family room, which is away from the road.
