We were only in Barcelona for one night, and so couldn't comment much on any long-term stay. However, the hotel was clean, modern and the limited contact we had with the staff was fine. The room was modern, well appointed and pleasant. I agree with one poster who commented that the bed is made for walking into - my wife banged her leg on it as well!

The area (and the hotel) are reasonably up-market and it appears a quite safe and pleasant place to stay (as distinct from some places we've stayed), and we felt that this was a neighborhood in which we would be comfortable for a lengthier stay.

There are plenty of shops of all sorts close by, and there is a taxi rank right outside the door which was great when we came to leave.

I would happily choose this hotel again if we ever return to Barcelona.

As frequent visitors to Barcelona we really looked forward to staying here in a great location on Passeig de Gracia. Overall, stylish hotel with innovative and interesting ideas in terms of decor, room design and bar/breakfast concept. However, too many flaws are evident, some of which are pointed out in other reviews. Our stay got off to a bad start. We arrived after 2pm but our room was not ready but would be in 30-40 minutes. We waited in the bar area on first floor and were told someone would come to tell us when our room was ready. After almost an hour and a half sitting waiting, I went back to reception where staff were chatting away and discovered the room was ready. Small thing perhaps but not a great start to our stay. Our room was fine, no view from the window but a good room. Interesting lighting concept which works well. Strange concepts include, firstly, a hard base around the bed which is almost impossible to avoid banging into - hit it hard enough and you'll be hobbling! Secondly, a loo which sprays out onto you when flushed -
not pleasant or hygenic! Thirdly, the shower (which is great) is entered by a sliding door which annoyingly wouldn't stay open when you wanted it to. Great idea to put a Nespresso coffeemachine in the room but, like the minibar, you have to pay for it. The bar prices are high (€6 for a beer). However, the real plus point of our stay was the fabulous breakfast. Friendly and efficient staff, self-selection of cold items including quality breads, croissants, meats, cheeses, and a delicious fruit salad. But you can also order a variety of hot cooked items including fabulous omelettes. Coffee and juices are good quality. So, yes, funky, but a few annoying glitches we feel the hotel should consider. This hotel is very good but has the potential to be better.

Among all the hotels that I have stayed in in the last 40 years, this is the only hotel which did not have a single chair in the room! My sisters and I had to sit on the floor or on our beds. Every day, we had to ask for additional shampoo and shower gel because they only replenish with one small bottle everyday. There were 3 of us in the room and one bottle was really not enough. No free coffee or tea. A coffee maker is provided in the room but one has to pay for any consumption. Sheets were not changed everyday. Someone in reception gave us wrong instructions on where to take the bus for the La Roca Outlet. (I was told to go to #6 Passeig de Gracia for tickets only to find out that this is a residential building!) A receptionist in another hotel gave me the correct information that I needed. Among the 5 personnel that we met in reception, only one was welcoming and friendly. The rest were curt and aloof. Yes, the location was good but there are so many hotels of similar (or even better) standard and rates in the same area. Breakfast was quite expensive.

Dear guest,
First of all thank you for sharing your Sixtytwo Experience with other readers.
As explained to you when you send to me, after your departure, the negative feedback of your stay via email, if at least we had known during your stay that you were in need of a chair, we would have added it the same day of your arrival.
The Executive double rooms that can be transformed into a triple use room, have a very large and confortable sofa area where 3 people can sit. When this room is for 3 people, the sofa is transformed into the 3rd bed and it is correct there is no other place to sit apart from the 3 beds.
We agree the Nespresso coffee and tea facility at The Sixtytwo is understood as another minibar item. We think it is better to have the possibility of preparing your own coffee in your room than not to have any facility.
As a 4 star hotel we confirm your sheets are changed every 2 days, but if needed and requested we can do it every day.
And finally, but not less important, in reference to the front desk staff, believe we are sorry if you received this image from most of them. We usually work hard for giving you the opposite impression.
At your entire disposal,
Best regards from Barcelona,
Alex Tetard
Hotel Manager

The hotel has a perfect location, tastefully furnished interiors and pleasant and helpful staff. Our room had a little patio, which invited you to sit out with a drink and plan your day. Coffee machine was a lovely touch and reasonably priced. Breakfast was varied with hot dishes cooked to order. Little black mark: our room was not made up when we came back at 15.30. We shall be staying there again.

Room Tip: I would ask for something 'round the back.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SUCH A GREAT REVIEW!!
The whole team has been so pleased to receive it. :-)
In order to erase this little black mark, for a next time do not hesitate to hang on your door the "cleaning request" or to just say it at the front desk when leaving the hotel.
It is correct our cleaning service goes from 9am until 5pm.
Keep travelling positive!

Just returned from Barcelona and a lovely stay at this property. Perfect part of town, close to lots of restaurants and great shopping.
The staff is pitch perfect and could not have been more accommodating. A really beautiful lounge with terrific breakfast every morning and drinks available in the evening. We had a nice little patio off of our room.
We would definitely stay here again

Room Tip: A busy street so something on the side or rear is best

Was a really nice and well priced hotel in a very good location on Passeig de gracia opposite Gaudi’s house.

Positives:

Reasonably sized and stylish room in a good location near to the metro and the shops and within walking distance of all of the major sights. Very easy to get there from the airport on the train. Staff were very polite. The room was very clean.

Negatives:

What is it with Spanish hotels and pushing two single beds together as a double? There wasn’t even a mattress topper to cover the gap in the bed. Not the best for a naughty weekend away in Barca!

Room Tip: Make sure if you order a double bed you get one!

Dear guest,
Thank you for sharing your Sixtytwo Experience with other Tripadvisor readers.
We are really sorry to read you were expecting a double bed instead of two... :-( The Sixtytwo has a total of 45 rooms and only 6 rooms have 2 single beds pushed one next to the other. If requested when booking, we always do our best to fulfill your need.
Let's hope there will be another naughty occasion :-)

I took my daughter on holiday for her birthday we had a fabulous time. The hotel was excellent and the breakfast you couldn't fault the staff were very helpful. The only downside was you could hear the people above you talking.
