Slightly late review but better late then never! Stayed Aug 2012 for two main reasons which is mainly why we chose this hotel, to watch a couple of football matches at the Camp Nou and also just general shopping and sight seeing. The hotel is pretty much directly between Camp Nou and Las Ramblas which was perfect for us, older people or those with walking difficulties would probably want to look in to public transport as it is a decent walk to either destination however hotel staff very friendly, speak good English and happy to help point you in the right direction. The first night we arrived FC Barcelona had already started playing a match which we couldn't make it to so when we asked one of the guys behind the reception desk if they had it on TV he told us to go to the bar across the road as they had it on instead, Which we did and had a great time. We actually returned a few times, staff in there are very nice as well and always remembered what we had to drink and set us a dish of nuts every time! No problems with cleanliness room cleaned every day and very nice bathroom. Very comfy beds and modern decor, overall no complaints and will definitely be returning for my next trip to Barcelona.

This hotel was beautiful! We had plenty of space for 3 of us in a room that had 2 bathrooms, a pullout couch, and a bed. When we checked in, we were meeting another friend who had already checked in. We found out they accidentally gave us two rooms, but they were quick to rectify the situation. The desk staff was very helpful from the time we entered the hotel to the time we left. They were very professional. The hotel was not as central as we would have liked, but it was very close to a Metro stop which took us everywhere we wanted to go. We did end up taking cabs a few times after late nights out. It also lacked the charm we were hoping for...but felt very luxurious after a long day of site seeing, which was nice.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at The Derby. The staff at reception were very helpful and the quality of the buffet style breakfast was very good. The only negative is that it's a bit far from the city centre, but that's not a problem if you like walking or use the metro.

We asked for a change of room on arrival (as they had given us a room with twin beds) and that was no problem at all. The reception staff were very knowledgeable about the tourist attractions.
I would recommend this hotel.

Excellent service! Staff was very helpful. Always ready to help and answer your questions. The quality of the service in a hotel is important and this hotel met my standards. The room was comfortable and clean. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip!

Beautiful place to stay, decor amazing, staff were fantastic and always happy to help, bit far out from main tourist attractions and got quite annoying by the end of the week, but fab place to stay! Rooms are very clean, although i agree with one comment, saying the wifi is a disadvantage, as a mother, heard nothing but moaning off my teenage kids!

As already reviewed, the hotel is outside of the main tourist areas but we had this in mind when making our booking as we enjoy walking or using the metro to find bars, shops and cafes off the beaten track. The rooms were cleaned well and the staff were very helpful. The only slight disadvantage was the limited Wi-Fi (one hour at a time using a code). Instead we planned our day trips using the unlimited Wi-Fi at the café next door over a very reasonably priced and delicious breakfast.

We spent 4 nights at the Derby. The location is a little bit off the main touristic route but a 5 minutes walk and one metro ride can take care of that. The junior suite was nice even if the TV was in an akward spot and the pillows way too hard for our liking; on the other end the balcony was lovely even in December. The hotel personnel was very helpful and everyone spoke english. free internet during the first 24 hrs was nice but, probably, you would expect free internet 24/7 in a 4 stars hotel.

Room Tip: junior suite at the 7th floor
