“Excellent rooftop pool and bar in heart of Eixample”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

Modern hotel just off Passeig de Garcia, walking distance from RENFE airport train stop in a nice upscale neighborhood. Our room was on the 5th floor or Club Floor and was nicely appointed but the climate control was not functioning properly. We were only in the hotel overnight pre-cruise but had a quiet restful stay.

We were greeted by a friendly front desk and a clean modern front of the house. Our room was also quite nice, clean and neat and everything in working order. The location is close to food, shopping and public transportation. There is a restaurant in the hotel, the breakfast is diverse. The food is good and will cater to several different tastes. The only negative (and it is a small one) is you can pick up some street noise, but it is not so bad it disturbs your rest. I would recommend this hotel.

Dear Mrs. Sadie,

We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for the kind words about Gran Hotel Havana. As a central hub to various public transportations, restaurants and other historical sites, we highly enjoy assisting our clients with their city wandering. Our clients come from all over the world, and we strive to fit the dietary needs of every variation. We do recognize the hustle of the city may be heard within the hotel due to our central location, only a short walk from Plaza Catalonia, and we are working to improve the isolation. Thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay in Barcelona, and we hope to see you again upon your future travels.

The hotel is very well located, in a safe neighbourhood, walking distance from restaurants and the infamous Las Ramblas shopping district.

We arrived quite late at night and it was a bit hectic trying to find out how to get into the underground parking. Once we figured that out we had to deal with the most narrow and inconveniently shaped car park I have ever seen.
Once through the front door, you walk right into the bar area and though it didn't look too welcoming, it was quite full and people seemed to like it.

The rooms were clean, modern and comfortable. The queen rooms consisted of two beds pushed together, creating a really uncomfortable dip. The windows were small, not letting in much light but we slept well.
Breakfast was good and offered gluten free options and nespresso coffee.
We were only in passing and this hotel was perfect for just that, though lacking slightly in character, its a solid choice.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: We stayed in a room facing the back and it was nice and quite.

The Grand Silken hotel has an excellent location, within easy walking distance of Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter. If you want to go further there is a metro station around the corner, and the Barceloneta and Sagra Familia and Park Guell are all just a couple of stops away.
The hotel is very smart and the room very comfortable. It is a central hotel and so there is inevitable noise from traffic and passers by. But this was fine for us and the bed was very comfortable and we slept well each night.
There is a restaurant and bar etc, but there are lots of cafes and bars nearby, appearing to cater to every taste. We kept to local food, and we were not disappointed.
We thought that the hotel was great, and when we return to Barcelona we will definitely think about staying there again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the lower floors are likely to get a lot of traffic noise. If you want a quieter room then...

We sincerely apologize for the dissatisfaction during your first night at Gran Havana. We strive to provide our residents with exceptional service and are looking to prevent the reoccurrence of this issue. On May 29th, there was an open bar party available to all guests, including free food and drinks with live music, taking place in the lobby and terrace areas.
We understand that you were very irritated while writing this review, but after your conversation with the Hotel general manager at 12:30 p.m., he moved you the day after to another terrace room farther away from the bar as promised. He also gave you the complimentary breakfast buffet for the rest of your stay as agreed.
Regrettably, we cannot take responsibility for the impolite actions of our other guests, but we are working to find solutions in order to ameliorate this problem for the future.
We hope the rest of your stay was satisfying and you can consider to choose our Hotel again during your next trip to Barcelona

Hotel is well situated about 10 minutes walk from Catalunya Square
This gave us a chance to see other parts of Barcelona away from the Rambla but was still only a gentle stroll to the buzz of the popular squares
The accommodation is very good, rooms spotless and good size
Small rooftop pool with a lovely bar and eating area which would be excellent for relaxing although we didn't have the time to use it on this occasion.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors ensure no noise form traffic

I visited Barcelona for 5 days and stayed at this hotel. The location is great to visit the city center, la Rambla, la Sagrada familia, and it's only a 2 minute walk to Girona metro station. My room was really small but clean and the amenities were more than any other hotel I have been. The breakfast buffet was very good with a big variety of food to choose from. I was a little disappointed with the late check-in (not before 2-2.30 in the afternoon).
