The location of the hotel was very good, with great views. The street outside can be a little noisy, there's a bus which goes past and a few little garages and building suppliers etc nearby, so if you leave the huge windows open overnight then you may well be woken by a few bumps. The hotel is very close to the sea and a short walk from the Llacuna metro station and the local shopping street (La Rambla Del Poblenou). It is also about a 20-25 minute walk into the centre, but it's not a difficult one. The hotel was very surprising for its price. We had excellent views, a decent breakfast, good air conditioning and friendly service for a similar price to many far worse hotels. The bathroom sink leaked a little, and the air conditioning was a little slow, and the bathroom door doesn't latch, but it was a very nice room with big and comfy beds. The receptionist who greeted us was very friendly and gave us a map, pointing out various local amenities, which was a great help as it was our first time in the city. The breakfast was perfectly pleasant, nothing special though. Plenty of fruits and cold meats. The Rambla Del Poblenou is a charming little pedestrian street with loads of restaurants, we would recommend Xorus for good quality and cheap spanish food with friendly service. Overall, we would very much recommend Hotel 4 Barcelona for its luxurious amenities and friendly service for a very small price.

Room Tip: It is worth paying the little extra for the Superior room.

Had a nice stay here in Barcelona at this hotel on 6/14 Also some problems, but read on . We were in the upgraded room which was very nice and spacious for Europe. We took the bus from the airport to the square and then the metro. Its a good 3 blocks away from the hotel but we were traveling light.

Had a problem of the shower not able to adjust the water---to hot! It was the weekend so a problem getting a tech in to fix the problem. They offered a room down the hall to shower which was very nice. VERY busy hotel and there on the weekend. The shower was sorted out after some staff messed around with it. Then the air-conditioning went out. Not doing to well here. We were offered another room which would be a downgrade. Did take it for that evening to get a good nights sleep after flying from Florida.

The next day they gave us a new room. They also took care of us in other ways which they didn't have too. GOLD STARS to the staff how they handled it from trying to solve the problem and coming up with a solution or solutions. Thank You very much.

I think the hotel is slightly removed from downtown but you do have the metro right there and other shopping area's. We actually did walk all the way downtown which is good walk. When you walk out the hotel and go left there is a few restaurants and small grocery store open late. If you walk out and go right about two blocks there is a main street with TONS of restaurants of tapas, Indian, Turkish, and etc. You have many choices and can't go wrong.

Nice breakfast!

The beach is in walking distance .

Would stay here again when in Barcelona.

Room Tip: I think the bigger room is better.

I won't be commenting on the access of the hotel as we didn't have an accessible room as they don't have one that accommodates three guests, although the room itself is absolutely gorgeous with the breathtaking.

This hotel is right near the beach so its perfect for catching some sun, it tools us about 20 minutes to walk to Las Ramblas which was lovely in the sunshine.

Couldn't fault the hotel and the service we received. The staff were very helpful and spoke good English. The room had a lovely sea view and was clean and spacious. Free safe which was very useful.The food there was decent enough but I would recommend eating out instead, the drinks were fair priced and they had a TV playing world cup games.
The immediate area is quite desolate, although this means it is very quiet at night I wouldn't like to walk this street too late at night. However a 5-10 minute walk leads you to a strip of vibrant restaurants and shops. The same walk another way leads you to the beach which is gorgeous.
Overall the hotel is a very good value for money and would recommend it to anyone.

Ok first the positive things: It is close to the beach and the metro....that's about it

We stayed 1 week in this place and I have to say in all my life I have not seen worse service in a hotel than in this Hotel 4 Barcelona; and I have been in a lot of hotels around the world.

First of all the room was very small and not really cleaned properly - bathroom had lots of weird stains and the window with nice cemetery view, was full of bird dirt.
The air condition stopped working after day 3 - some guy came and explained us we are absolutely not allowed to open the window - did not work either way, but whatever

Now to the ABSOLUTE NO GOS!: There was no fridge/minibar in the room. I do understand most people only use it to cool the much cheaper drinks they buy in supermarkets, but in a 4 star hotel no fridge? Come on, this is not the 18th century.
And the real disaster was after checking out on the last day - our flight was later in the evening so we spent the day on the beach and asked if we could take a shower when we pick up our luggage. The concierge said to us: absolutely, but it costs 5 Euros. Are you kidding me? We spent one whole week there and then this insulting person asks for additional 5 Euros for using a shower in the basement....Ridiculous. This is really a shame and I hope the management of this hotel makes some changes.

We will definitely not recommend this hotel to anyone. Overpriced, bad service, bad information and for every little thing they want additional money.

ps: Who can sleep on such pillows? I should sue them for backpain
