Wilson Boutique Hotel
Ranked #95 of 513 Hotels in Barcelona
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 26, 2012

I can only say favourable things about this hotel -- the renovated edifice is lovely, the rooms are quiet although they are over a main thoroughfare, the hotel is easily accessible from everywhere, the staff is extremely helpful and always ready to serve. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I would recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation as provided in a boutique hotel.

Room Tip: I chose a room with a view, but I don't know if there are any rooms without a view.

My husband and I spent three nights at the Wilson Boutique Hotel in Oct 2012. We found the hotel extremely good value for money, nicely decorated and clean with very helpful and friendly staff. Our double room was very comfortable spacious and although we were situated on the main street it was very quiet due to the excellent double glazed windows. The breakfast was was exceptionally good value at €12 for as much as you could eat ranging from a cooked breakfast to cereal and fruit. The hotel is central for sight seeing all the main attractions with the nearest Metro, Diagonal, about 7 min walk from the hotel and connects to pretty much anywhere. Passeigh de Gracia, for anyone who likes designer shops e.g. Chanel, Armani, Yves Sal Laurent, Stella McCartney, to name but a few, can all be found there and La Rambla is approx 40 min walk from the hotel also. A word of warning! walking to Park Güell is up hill which is very, very steep and to help you along there are 5 escalators in the open street (unusual) we would recommend the metro part of the way then taxi or taxi all the way there and walk back (down hill of course). The city has so much to enjoy, a week would probably be sufficient :-D xx

I spent two nights there for a weekend trip after having spent one week in Barcelona for business. The otel is nice, central and provides good value for money. It is close to all main attractions (10 mins walk to Passeigh de Gracia and Rambla). Despite all, the worst was the hotel staff, mor eparticular the receptionist. When asking for the final payment of the breakfast, no thank you, no smile, no quetsion whether I liked my stay, no question about whether I would like a taxi. Those are very basic things I consider essential - I guess they still have not understood what makes a stay valuable. I was very disappointed by that bad service. If you do not mind unfirendly staff, still OK to go there!

I like the typical design sense found in boutique hotels, and the Wilson was no exception: great lighting, fine appointments in the room, excellent features. It is also much less expensive (~120 Euro/night) than its apparent competition. Since it is located on the Diagonal, the sound-proof windows were very welcome, and I used the room's AC - unusual for me.
The hotel is on the Ave Diagonal just north of the downtown shopping and catedral/port/museum areas of interest, and just west of the Gracia restaurant area, so it's a great location. It has eight floors and is shaped like the Flatiron building in NYC: the building narrows to a point, so the end rooms on the upper floors must be pretty cool - and worth requesting?
I appreciated this architectural feature sitting in the 2nd-floor bay window at the point and enjoying the excellent breakfast served in that room. Note that it makes no mention of price as you walk into the restaurant area, but breakfast is not included in the room rate (it cost around 12 Euro). I enjoyed the potato pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage, yoghurts, breads, cheeses, and would have liked some smoked salmon... There was lots of salami and Parma ham.
I liked the Hotel Wilson and recommend it; if you arrive by car, speak to them about local parking because they have a deal nearby: only 22 Euro for 24 hours (that's good for BCN).

Room Tip: Try to get one of the pointy-end rooms on the upper floors.

As other reviewers have said, this was exceptionally good value for the location in Barcelona. Walking distance from most of the key areas of the city, and close to Diagonal metro stop which has connections to pretty much anywhere (one small gripe: the 10 min walk to the metro did seem quite long when soaked to the skin after a day of incessant rain... but it won't be raining when you're there!).

Rooms were nice and clean, free wifi was a bonus, the breakfast was good and the soundproof windows / blackout curtains meant a good night's sleep.

My friend and I stayed here in June and its a great hotel! Clean, comfortable and a little bit trendy all at the same time. Breakfast was good too.

Great location, easy walk to shops plus the sightseeing bus tour route.

Ramblas is about 5-10 mins away by a taxi (we didn´t walk it) and the beach is a little further.

We will def stay there again!
