Hotel 4 Barcelona

Reviewed August 27, 2012

We are a young couple and visited the Hotel 4 in July/August. We were very impressed with the the hotel and thought the location was brilliant. The nearest metro station was a 5 minute walk and the beach was a 10 minute walk in the opposite direction (through a handy McDonalds). The area isn't the most attractive in all directions but we were only walking through it briefly and so this did not bother us in the slightest. We had the breakfast almost every day as this was included in our deal, it served its purpose but I wouldn't of paid for it separately. One evening we tried the restaurant which was convenient and the food was ok but not amazing - this did not matter though as we found lots of amazing restaurants along the beachfront which is a 15-20 minute walk. The gym is quite small and some of the equipment was broken, but it was free to use. The steam room and sauna was great but we only used it once. The views from our room on the sixth floor were actually really nice with the sea in one direction and a view over the city in the other direction, we could not see in to the cemetery that others have complained about. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was great, air con worked a treat. Room service was very expensive but this is the same wherever you stay. The TV was LCD but I could not find any English channels except news, despite several attempts. A handy service was that you could get a beach towel from reception for only 10 euro deposit (returned when finished with). The reception staff were very helpful and everybody spoke great English. Overall we were happy with the hotel and really enjoyed our stay, we thought it was a 4 star and would go there again if we were in the area.

Hotel located about 15 minutes (by taxi) from the airport and it cost about 32 euros by taxi. Walking distance from the hotel to the beach: 7 min. If you like an extremely hot weather: go in the middle of august. We personally found it was too hot, with 34 degrees in the shade, but after a few days you get used to the heat. The hotel staff was always friendly and helped us to print the necessary documents to repatriation and other tickets to the city's sights. Two computers were free to use at the reception. One can book dinner in the hotel restaurant from 7pm. The food was better than a lot of other things we ordered at the local restaurants. Drinks were cheap and generous.

The hotel has no minibar, but free safety box, tv and very good air conditioning. They cleaned our rooms every day. Towels for use at the beach you can borrow at the reception of the stay by paying a deposit of 10 euros. Food store SPAR is 7 min. walking distance.

In summary, I am extremely pleased with our stay. they made ​​us feel safe and happy.

I was very pleased during my accommodation in this Hotel! It has really clean & comfortable rooms with internet equipment. It has also big bathrooms, accommodated with white marbles. You can easily walk to the metro station or the beach..

Very good hotel, clean modern feel with a very helpful staff. Only two blocks away from a metro stop and 15 minute walk to the beach and clubs. Very quite neighborhood, the large cemetary across from the hotel is not as eerie as you would think. The hotel is only one block away from a hop on/off bus tour that I would recommend. Nice breakfast and a very friendly staff..

Room Tip: Higher floor would offer a better view. Ask for a room facing the ocean for a better view, remember...

The hotel is quite new, stylish and very clean. I can't say any complaints about it. Also the breakfast is quite good. I had the room in the upper floor with a great view across the city. The hotel is located a bit far away from Ciutat Vella and all the tourist attractions but the metro station Llacuna is about 5 min walk away (three or four blocks) and anyway you would be taking the metro to go around Barcelona. I didn't try the buses, but heard that several buses go near by too. If you intend to go to the beach, this hotel is a must, since it's only 5 min walk to the beach Bogatell. I would recommend the beaches along Poble Nou since they are far less crowded than in Barceloneta where most tourists seemed to go. Also Rambla de Poble Nou is very close with several restaurants and cafes without as much crowd as in Ciutat Vella. I would stay in this hotel again!

I will try to make it simple in a few steps:
- Location : very good, 5 minutes until Bogatell beach, Llacuna station also very close with L4 directly until Parseg de Gracia (main station)
- Food : We had breakfast included (Excelent bythaway). From fruits to toast to cereals and even local tortilla everything tasted very good. Lunch and dinner can't comment because we eaten only out
- Service : Unfortunately that was not one of the strong points. Barely received some smiles, and in the morning the staff did hist job, but the face was stiff as a board:). Rooms cleaned every day, new towels in the bathroom, also beachtowels every day change.
- View : Did not have a room with only see view but also the cemetery is ok :). Really looks interessting, it is not a lie. The hotel has no balconys and that is a big - when you want to see a sunset in hotel (honestly every evening we arrived at >22 and you are too tired anyways after the km you do visiting and also sunsets\sunrises are to be seen from the beach not hotel!)
- Overall experience : Very good from my perspective. I don't quite know if it is a 4 start hotel, but it was nice to me. The wi-fi connection is pretty much unexistent. Could not even check in on fb from phone:). You have the option with cable internet, but I was in vacation not business trip therefore no laptop. I recommend this hotel for vacations even though we had few things to complain, that even not mattered so much for a vacation.
