“Perfect location with a stunning rooftop pool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

I recently stayed at NH Calderon in Barcelona for a long weekend in July 2012. The room was tastefully decorated in a modern style. The location cannot be beaten, in the heart of the Eixample neighbourhood and just a few blocks again from Placa Catalunya. The hotel rooftop pool is fantastic. It tends to get very busy in the late afternoon, so it's a bit tricky to snag a chaise lounge. The staff are friendly and were helpful. Wifi is pricey, however you can ask for a voucher to use a wifi code for a time restricted period.

The hotel is quite nice and it is located in the city center. Therefore, you can easily walk anywhere: paseo de gracia, las ramblas, plaza catalunia, el corte ingles,etc. At the time I was there, there was no free Wifi service, which I think it is a shame because nowadays Internet in the room would be more important than having a telephone handset...

Was again in the hotel NH Calderon in Barcelona and i can still agree with my previous review. Had a room now on 10th floor and it was perfect, rooms are clean, enugh space, nice bed and lobely view. This time i spend more time at the swimmingpool, its small but ok. Only thing is not enough chairs around the pool maybe..even have dressingrooms at the pool and lockers. Everything is close to the hotel and staff is really friendly and always in for a chat. The buffet ...still wonderful, enough choices and everything is there. Second time and will be going again when i vistit Barcelona a next time. Thanks for a lovely stay again..

Stayed for 1 night, well located for restaurants and shopping. Great for business travelers. Staff are attentive,friendly and efficient! All requests (iron for the room, wake-up call) were delivered without having to chase. Was upgraded to a superior room, which was spacious, comfortable and very clean. What impressed me most was the breakfast choice, excellent quality and variation. Highly recommended.

Just spent a couple of days in Barcelona with my wife, the NH Calderon is an excellant hotel, the staff were very welcoming, even though we arrived early they did offer us another room but we declined the offer (smoking room). Our luggage was carefully stowed away until we returned later in the afternoon (3pm). The room was large, clean and everything what you would expect from this chain. The mini bar was really well priced, a few euros for a bottle of beer or coke etc. We stayed in room 605 and the view was pleasant. We will definately return to Barcelona and to this particular hotel because apart from being clean etc its location is fantastic.

Friendly, efficient staff. Great location. Never tried the breakfast however had dinner in the Restraunt on our last night and a three course meal, with wine and coffees for under 50 euro was excelent value. We too taxi from the airport which cost around 30 euro but bus stop in Placa catalunya is only 400yds away or metro station Passeig de gracia just around the corner.

Room Tip: Room 205 has a nice balcony
