“Great value and classy”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights before leaving on our cruise. It was everything we expected from reading the reviews. A great value for the money. The room and bathroom were clean, modern and looked newly updated. The king sized bed was comfortable and the room was spacious, more than enough room for our luggage and us to easily move around. The included breakfast was very good with lots of options. We thought the location was excellent just far enough away from the crowds of La Rambles but easy access to get there. Also easy access to tour buses. Our room overlooked the courtyard which was nice but we can't vouch for views from other rooms, we booked way in advance of our trip. We would definitely stay here again when and if we ever return to Barcelona!

Room Tip: My guess, the rooms that overlook the courtyard are the best...

Location is perfect - it takes 10 minutes walk to get to either the sightseeing points or to the transport that will take you anywhere. The hotel is quiet and stylish. I did not expect muxh from it and was really surprised. Will stay again.

Clean, stylish,large and quiet hotel. No Balcony or view but then the price would have been three times the price. Only a five to ten minute walk to La Rambla and about twenty to Barcaloneta, very well placed to see the best of Barcelona.

Pros
- Great location! Quick walk to Las Ramblas, down the street from a Starbucks.
- Comfortable, contemporary rooms. Great bathrooms.
- Afternoon tea time. Free coffee after 5pm.
- Free fast wifi.
- Room was ready for an early check in (11am).

Cons
- Unhelpful front desk staff with limited knowledge of the area. Did not have any recommendations in terms of restaurants in the area, or activities. Gentleman at the front desk did not know how long it would take to get to Sagrada Familia or how much time to allocation for a tour.

Hotel Granvia was a wonderful place! Clean, crisp and trendy. It is a beautiful property located on Gran Via about 5 mins. from Plaza Catalunya. Fabulous patio-perfect for an afternoon glass of wine and hors d'oeuvres(which can be picked up around the corner at the Ingles.) The Ramblas is a five minute walk, the Gothic Quarter and El Born about 10-15 mins. The female receptionist(I wish I remembered her name)was very helpful when we were having difficulty trying to make train reservations. I also stayed at a 4 star property in Barcelona, and would have preferred to returned to the Granvia. The photos previous guests have posted are accurate.

This hotel is just fabulous. The room was large and airy. The bathroom was incredibly clean and the shower and facilities great. The breakfast was great and the concierge very friendly. The location was perfect. I would not hesitate to return or recommend to friends.

.....I have never stayed at a Hotel and my room not been ready at check in time. We initially arrived at 11am and were able to drop our bags. The receptionist was helpful and advised the room would be ready at 3pm which we understood. We arrived back at 3.30pm very hot and tired having been up since 5am. No room ready. We were advised 30 mins wait and given a complementary glass of cava on the terrace. 4.15 pm we had still not been called.....so I went back to reception, was advised another 30 mins. I did not accept this and the receptionist then managed to find us an alternative ( superior) room. We were very tired, hot and fed up by this point. The room itself was excellent - clean, fresh, comfy beds, doors opening onto shallow balcony. My only complaints were bare hooks on the 'feature' wall where there should have been some art work, and no tea / coffee facility only mini bar. I would have given it 4.5 stars if not for terrible check in experience.
