Hotel Silken Ramblas Barcelona
Ranked #244 of 518 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

This hotel was wonderful, just off Las ramblas which was amazing. Close to port vell, barceloneta and the Gothic quarter. The front service were helpful and friendly. The rooms were a nice size, clean and comfortable. The hallways were a little messy bit not too bad. It also had a wonderful roof top pull area and bar where you could soak up the Spanish sun! Had the best time and would stay there again!

The location is great. It is just a block away from Las Ramblas, which has all kinds of shopping and restaurants (many staffed with English speakers). Nearby there were American restaurants like McDonalds and Hard Rock Cafe along with lots of more local Spanish food, There is plenty to see and do nearby if you want to explore on foot, but it's also easy to find a bus or taxi. Barcelona seems like a great city for pedestrians.
The room was clean and modern. The staff were very helpful and most of them spoke good English. They pointed us in the direction of good shops and restaurants. Our baggage arrived late from the airline and so the hotel staff provided us with an electric outlet converter and several necessities to borrow until it arrived. They also called us a taxi on our way out.
The only negative is that it is in the middle of an urban area, so it can be loud outside at night.

Hotel is 2 minutes from Las Ramblas and also close to Catalanya Plaza which is where all the buses stop as well as the Metro stations. The entrance into the lobby gives a good impression. Staff are very friendly. Arrived early but was able to leave our luggage at the hotel while we wandered until our room was ready.

Room layout is like all other hotels. Bed was good and pillows were very comfortable. Myself and my wife stayed in room 102 and our only complaint would be the thin walls. Every time someone showered or flushed the toilet you could hear the water gushing down the pipes. This was extremely bad if you wanted to lie in as the early rises would naturally use the bathroom facilities meaning that you would now be awake.

Apart from that, the hotel was good to use as a base. It does have a roof top pool but isn't as big as the photos that are on the website.

Stayed here this summer 2013. Hotel was okay, but the noise from the street was very loud. Customer service was quite bad. Location is very good, next to the Rambla. I wouldn't recommend this hotel for a friend

Room Tip: I think higher floors are quieter

4-star hotel with 2-star care for the customers.
They really could not care less.
Good location close to the Rambla, but I advice taking a hotel in the Gothic quarter or other areas which are much nicer than right on the Rambla, and in either case do not take this hotel.

We stayed in this hotel in March 2013 and were very pleased with it. It was my daughter's choice as she had worked for a Silken Hotel in Valencia when she was on a six months placement there during her degree course. It is in an excellent location, the rooms were clean, it was a little noisy so take some ear plugs but that was due to the central location. We didn't eat in but there were so many lovely restaurants to chose from close by you are spoiled for choice. Staff were friendly enough, helpful and all spoke good English. I would stay here again definitely.
