Excellent hotel with a fabulous service.
Location was close to every where in walking distance.
Services were amazing.
Honesty bar was a very creative idea , where you can drink and write what you drank on a piece of paper.

Dear guest,
Thank you so much for sharing such a nice review with other tripadvisors!
Glad to read you appreciated our new bar concept called "Honesty Bar": be honest and serve yourself as if you were at home and just note your drinks + room number + signature on our HBar form.
Hope to welcome you soon!
Best regards from Barcelona.

This hotel is excellently situated on Passeig de Gracia, in L'Eixample neighborhood about 5 blocks from the Placa de Catalunya.
For our arrival, we took the Aerobus from the airport to the Placa for 5 Euros each and walked to the hotel. As we arrived very early and on a Sunday, our rooms weren't ready yet, but they stored our luggage and gave us a map & tourist booklet and sent us on our way.
If you are looking for this hotel on Google Earth from the photo-Street View layers, it is located between the green Casa del Libre bookstore awnings. As this is a photo from last year, the Hotel Sixtytwo awnings are not visible.

We found this hotel on Expedia, and got a good rate for Sunday-Thursday. We watched the prices go up, up, up for Friday/Saturday then they were sold out for those days. I believe there was a large trade show in town that ate up a lot of rooms for the weekend.

Our room was on the street side, and had a view of Gaudi's Casa Batllo', which was charmingly lit at night. Had seen some notes of complaint about street noise. Um, seriously? Through that double paned insulated glass? Hardly. There were electronic room-darkening blinds which we only used one night, as they really made the room dark and I prefer light in the morning to so I can haul myself out of bed to start sightseeing at a reasonable hour.

The small balcony had a lovely wrought iron railing.

Our room for Sun-Thurs. was # 402, and was quite spacious and nicely decorated. The bathroom was the largest I have seen in a European city hotel. Everything was very modern, and the toiletries were of nice quality. There was a tub with a detachable shower spray, typical of what we have seen in nicer hotels in Europe. Was I going to splash all over the place as usual? Yep. Can't get the hang of those things! But wait! there was a hidden shower room that was a dedicated shower with a door! Awesome! No more splashing around!
The bathroom had a large sink and vanity area, and a short roll-away set of shelves for storage. Then a closed off toilet room and the shower room, both with a shared sliding door, and the tub.

We had a queen size bed and a useful low shelf about 2 feet wide running the entire width at the foot of the bed. Generous closet space, mini bar/fridge, safe, funny orange chair, and a desk that we did not use.

The lobby was not large, but bright and always attended. The cleaning times varied from about 10-5. There was a breakfast buffet available, but we did not use this service. It was abuot 20 Euro per person, and we prefered a smaller meal.

On the first floor (2nd floor for Americans), there was an open lounge, 2 computers for general use, and an honesty bar. You were welcome to have drinks and just write down your room number, and they would add it to your bill. The breakfast buffet was served here also. We had to wait a few times for the computers to be free, but with a lovely lounge overlooking the Passeig de Gracia, it was hardly a bother.

The hotel is right next to a metro entrance- the large Passeig de Gracia station.

As Friday/Saturday were at first beyond our budget and then full, we moved to a different hotel for those nights. Unfortunately, due to the closure of the Barcelona Airport for part of our departure day, we were stuck in Barcelona for an extra day, and we returned Here to Hotel Sixtytwo. I say stuck, since we had to trudge back into town with no hotel or really a clear picture of what we were supposed to do with ourselves of for how long. The airline gave us an estimated departure time of 5 days later! We booked for one night, and it eventually turned out that was all we needed.

Our second room was on the 3rd floor facing the back courtyard. It was smaller, no separate shower room, no shelf at the end of the bed, but what must have been a large balcony was converted into a small room with a fabulous and deep room-width couch thingy. This was perfect for our day of confusion, as we ended up spending most of the day on the couch.

A couple of notes- The satellite TV was iffy, sometimes you got all the channels, sometimes some of the channels, sometimes none of the channels. The second room had A/C problems, and we couldn't get the temperature to regulate, despite several attempts from the front desk staff. I believe this was a known problem, and they did try to adjust it for us. In April it was bearable. In August? Perhaps not.

This hotel is under new management within the past year, and they have done a lovely job. It is 4 Stars, and really- the location is wonderful- so close to the metro! There are great restaurants around, and it is in close proximity to the Casa Battlo, La Pedrera and the interesting Antoni Tapies Foundation. We especially enjoyed the Cerveceria Catalunya for tapas.

We paid $162 USD per night for the 5 nights we were there. Rates higher on weekends and when they are more booked up I suppose. We paid $240 USD for that extra night at the end for a smaller room on the back.

Wi Fi was 12 Euro per day, so we did not hook up to that, prefering to use the lounge computers for free or the cafe a few doors down had free wi-fi.

We really liked this hotel, and would stay again at the $162 USD rate. That was a bargain for this class hotel in this neighborhood on this street. The $240 rate was more typical for what you would see right around here. The area is filled with every sort of lodging from cheap hostels to fabulous 5 Star wonders. We certainly don't fit into either of those extreme categories, and were very happy at Hotel Sixtytwo.

Oh- all the front desk staff spoke English and were always polite.

I think once word gets out about this hotel it will not only be more difficult to get a room, but you won't be able to get any rates under $200 USD. Book now! There are maybe 45 or so rooms.

I had a terrible experience with this hotel during the above incident. I emailed asking if there was any flexibility around the cancellation policy and reveived no reply. I called and was informed that there was no flexibility, I then tried to re-arrange for a later date but despite numerous phone calls and emails could not get a confirmation of this booking. I decided to cancel And book with another hotel, they have not even had the courtesy to email me back to confirm my cancellation.
Very poor experience and I am now glad I will not be staying there.

Dear PStephe1,
Maybe if it would have been possible to reschedule (with more flexibility) a new stay at the Sixtytwo, you would have been very pleased. We will definately never know...
We really do hope you spend a nice time in Barcelona anyway and be sure the Sixtytwo booking department always try to do its best, including applying cancellation policies but also rescheduling stays and compensating.
Best regards,

We had a reservation for 4 rooms for a weekend in Barcelona. Due to the Volcano cloud Vienna airport was closed on the same day as our flight to Barcelona, so we were not able to fly there. I called the hotel immediately, but they were not prepared to waive the cancellation fee and we had to pay one night each per room, which adds up to quite some money. I understand that you have to pay the fee if you don't show up, but under this circumstances I would expect a waiver or reduction, because it was not our fault.

Dear Mr. P.,

I personaly do remember exactly what happened with your reservation and I am pleased to inform you again of our agreement.

As I spoke with you on the phone (a couple of days after having your credit card been charged) the SixtyTwo was just following the cancellation policy.

Cancelling your 4 rooms the same day of the arrival, legally speaking allowed us to charge the 1st night of each room.

However, and taking into account the very special circumstances of the cancellation, I informed you that for a next visit to Barcelona it will be, by way of compensation, a pleasure to upgrade you to Privilege rooms and to invite you for breakfast all of you 8 the first morning.

An email was also sent the 21st of April to the email address you did used for booking, summarising the compensation agreement.

In numbers:
- Last minute cancellation charge (4 rooms) = 890€
- Breakfast for 8 persons = 120€
- Upgrade to Privilege = 80€ x 4 rooms = 320€

Compensation total = 440€ = almost the 50% of the initial penalty.

As it was said on the email I personaly sent to you, get in touch with me as soon as you have new dates and a new booking will be done under these conditions.

Waiting for your feedback.

This boutique hotel is located in the heart of Passeig de Gracia. The subway and RENFE train system (which takes you directly to the airport) is steps away... There are numerous cafes and restaurants too. And more importantly, Casa Mila and Batillo is blocks away from your hotel.

The hotel staff was very friendly and informative. The rooms were spacious, high ceilings and comfortable-cozy.

I would definitely recommend this place to a friend...

Dear "Charlieandcharles",

Thank you very much for your review that will help for sure other travellers.

There is no doubt the SixtyTwo is perfectly located on the wellknown Paseo de Gracia, one of the most exclusive streets of Barcelona, famous for its shopping and modernist style architecture. At 2min walk on your left you will find la Casa Batllo, and at 5min right la Casa Milà, apart from boutiques&restaurants.

It is also true we cannot complain about connexions: railway station, tube stations, airport bus stations and taxi rank at no more than 5min walk.

However, what we appreciate the most is your comment on our team that motivates all of us in making you feel day after day as comfortable as we can.

Best regards,

Having just spent two nights at this new hotel, I must say it is almost impossible to fault it. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated, with plenty of storage space, coffee/tea machine, sleek bathroom with a tub and a separate shower, fluffy towels and Etro amenities. The sound proofing is perfect, while the room faced Paseig del Gracia we didn't hear any noise at all. CD player, flat screen TV, very comfortable bed... The reception was very friendly and helpful and the complimetary wine tasting on Friday night was fun. A designer boutique hotel with reasonable prices, on the most beautiful street of Barcelona, right between Casa Milo and Casa Battlo, with attention to detail, fantastic service and management that really cares... we will be back soon!

I am a VERY VERY selective person in regard to hotels, cleanliness, etc. My standards are high. This hotel is TOP...particuarly for its class/type of hotel and price! The rooms are super...and very comfortable. This is a very smart, sexy, sleek boutique hotel. Location is PERFECT...there really could not be any better. The "honest" bar is GREAT. Staff is friendly, customer service oriented (which says A LOT for Europe), and very attentive. I can not rave more about this hotel! ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO STAY IN BARCELONA!!! This hotel will now be my Barcelona hotel!!
