I use to go to this hotel since 2001 and, last July, I knew that they were renewing it and in my last trip to Barcelona - begining of December, I have been there and the good news was that a lovely couple was buying and renewing it; Everything new, nice colors, friendly service and at the same rates as before. Thanks & Good luck.

We travel alot all over Europe. This was the first time we decided to stay in small property. It turned out to be a fantastic place. Really good value and excellent position. The staff were really friendly and always had a smile ready for us. Alfred has great taste in restaurants, he gave us some great places to eat!! We would deffinately return to the hotel.

With this being our first trip to Spain, my sisters and I were not sure where to stay but we made the right decision. Hotel Ginebra was fabulous! The location couldn't be better, the room was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my family and friends! Thank you for a terrific week!

Room Tip: Was a little noisy on the street side but we were so exhausted that we slept pretty good!

This small hotel has a good location right on Plaza Catalunya. It is a 1 star hotel recently renovated so it could be higher in ratings, but the service is not so good. Rooms are properly cleaned but little and a bit noisy. Breakfast is very little and not self-service. Staff is helpful but a little bit cold, sometimes also rude. Not the best quality/price ratio.
Security and everything else is almost ok but there isn't a good and cheerful atmosphere in the hotel. A TV area is the only recreational area of the hotel.

I recently had the great pleasure of staying at the Hotel Ginebra on a business trip to Barcelona. The hotel is newly renovated and the rooms are very nice and clean - I especially liked the bathroom. Being there on business, I was glad that the wifi worked really well and that the hotel in general was quiet and relaxed. I was lucky to get a room with a view over Plaza Cataluña - the central square close to the old town, the Ramblas etc. and very well-communicated with the rest of the city by metro and bus. Upon arrival I got a bit worried about the noise from the street, this being one of the busiest spots in town, but you can close out the noise by shutting the different windows and I had absolutely no problems and slept really well. The staff and the owners, Alfred and Yvonne, were all really friendly and helpful and always up for a chat, and I will definitely go back the next time I go to Barcelona.

Room Tip: Great view in the rooms overlooking Plaza Cataluña

Dear Mikkel

Thank you very much for your review. We enjoyed meeting you and hearing about your adventures as a Danish journalist in Spain, even although you are a Real Madrid fan :)
We will give you a call when we are in Madrid ourselves to invite you for a coffee and we will chat some more.
See you soon

It was the first time my wife and I had been to to Barcelona for many years, we trawled the web looking for a reasonably priced and well located hotel for shops and restaurants and close to Las Rambias and decided on Hotel Ginebra.
We were not disappointed, the location was spot on, the room view overlooked main Plaza the rooms had recently been refurbished to a very high standard and the staff could not have been more helpful.
My wife and I would certainly recommend Hotel Ginebra for anybody would like to sight see and get to know Barcelona.
Thanks to Alfred,Yvonne, & staff for a wonderful stay.
Mr & Mrs Ward.

Room Tip: Tell Alfred or Yvonne your preference.
