Very nice hotel

- Great location , 1 block away from. Metro and Main Street " Pasieg de Gracia " , plenty of shopping and restaurants near by

- very clean hotel

- sound proofing , not perfect but very very good

- rooms have blinds which conpletely black them out , great for getting sleep of your jet lagged

- roof top pool , very nice

- gym needs work , only basic very light set of weights , treadmill doesn't work properly ( belt slips )

- beds form but comfortable

- staff are absolutely perfect , to say they were nice and helpful , does do justice to how good these people were , nicest most enegetic and hard working group I have come accross

Overall we loved our stay at this hotel so much that we decided to stay longer then originally planned

Excellent location. Close to a lot of restaurants and stores.
Hotel staff was kind, yhe room was ok. Clean and with good space.
But i doesn't look like a five star.
Great rooftop with a good pool and a nice bar and restaurant.

We stayed here in a junior suite for about a week for our honeymoon and had an amazing stay. The workers were very nice, the room was clean and modern, and we slept incredibly well (the blackout shades helped). We loved the rooftop pool and bar, visited almost every day.

The location is amazing. La Pedrera and Casa Batllo are very close, on a street with lots of good window shopping. It's a block or two from the Passeig de Gracia metro station, which will take you all over the city easily. There's also a train station a block away that has trains to the airport and for day trips. They also have a driver available, though I don't know if he takes you anywhere or just to the airport. We used him to get to the airport for 35 euros.

We stayed for several nights at the Claris Hotel at the start of our trip to Spain. The room was very comfortable and large by European standards. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Ricardo the Front Desk Manager. He recommended restaurants that turned out to be thoroughly enjoyable as well as sight seeing destinations, even food stalls at the Ramblas. Every detail was taken care of for us. Visiting Barcelona we would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Even rooms that face the street are quiet. Good little places for breakfast are an easy walk from t...

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our two-week trip to Spain. We picked this hotel, part of the Derby chain, because of the great experience we had at the beginning of the trip staying at the Urban Hotel in Madrid. This hotel is very similar in experience, very modern, Egyptian art, rooftop deck. It is in an excellent location one block from the Passeig de Gracia and walking distance of the Rambla, the Gaudi houses, and the fancy shopping, etc. We stayed the first night in an executive room on the fifth floor facing the front of the building and asked to be switched to the courtyard side because of the traffic noises starting at seven am. They accommodated us and we slept very soundly for the next two nights! We very much liked this hotel, but I found a few things in the room didn't live up to the five star experience, such as sluggish sink and bathtub drains, burnt out lighbulb, housekeeping which didnt change the dirty glasses. Minor things but for the price, you expect more. On the upside, we really like the Derby hotel experience so would highly recommend.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, choose the courtyard facing rooms but you won't get a view of the st...

Downsides: Walls are thin, duplex apartments bizarrely have only the lounge upstairs, service at the roof-top bar is nonexistent.
Positives: clean rooms, the best location in Barcelona, friendly staff.

We had a lovely 3 day stay in Barcelona at this trendy hotel. It is within walking distance of all the Gaudi attractions, Picasso museum, shopping district, Gothic Quarter and La Rumbla. Our room was across from the Egyption museum on the first floor - interesting. The daily included breakfast was very good and satisfying. The staff was very attentive, friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 121 is a spacious Jr Suite. Very spacious, quiet and comfortable
