“Good for an overnight stay”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

I hesitated to book this hotel based on reviews and, at the time, only a 56 percent recommended rate but it's a fine hotel if you are transferring though Barcelona to somewhere else. We had an early morning arrival and the free shuttle picked us up right away after phoning the hotel. It was no problem checking in early. Wifi at the hotel is fantastic with a reliable signal to the rooms and no necessary password. There is also a brand new sparkling Mac computer in the lobby. The on-site restaurant is expensive to we opted to walk into the industrial area around the corner from the hotel (turn left when you walk out the front door and the first left taking you past the truck inspection station). There are a string of restaurants that cater to the workers in the distribution centers across the street. Only one stays open in the evening and it serves basic dishes. The rooms at this hotel were very nice, very comfortable beds and space age modern bathrooms. What another reviewer said about no plug for the sink is accurate. For us not a major problem. What another reviewer said about the hallways was also accurate. The walls are scuffed and not as nicely presented as the rest of the property. Any smoky odours were masked by perfumed cleaners. Anyone with allergies might not do well here. Air con worked just fine. Couldn't hear any noise outside the room.

We stayed there based on it's proximity to the airport (or so we thought), for our flight out the next morning.. It is close to terminal 2, but we were going out of Terminal 1, which is about 1/2 hour away from the hotel. It is clean, and the bed was comfortable, but the hotel is worn, and not the best. Didn't try their food. Instead, we caught the #21 bus and went to Las Ramblas and ate there. the bus ride to there and back was about 45 minutes each way, but it was plesent and only Euros per person.

Booked this hotel purely on the strength of the free shuttle to the airport. We were only staying one night, so went to reception before we went to bed to confirm departure time only to be told that 4 shuttles in a row were already fully booked... The only options we were offered were 7am and 9.45am for an 11am flight. We ended up paying €22 for a taxi...just about the last euro we had left!

We did complain at the time and on our return, but told that we should have booked our slot earlier... Personally, I think that the night before departure when you are only staying one night should be time enough!!

The location of this hotel is very poor. The ONLY advantage of staying here is the free shuttle. If that isn't guaranteed then you are far better off then just booking one for central Barcelona and getting public transport in from the hotel for your flight...

We stayed here 1 night at the start of this years summer vacation in Spain. My gereral impression, is that th hotel is a bit more worn than the impression one gets from the website. And it lies further from terminal 1 than stated (mybe the distance is to terminal 2, which nearly noone use).

It was OK, but given the price and the reviews I'd expected a bit more. Small room, nice bathroom (recently refurbished), and in general nothing special.

We were looking for the least expensive place to stay in Barcelona before and after our cruise. Our travel agent found this Best Western. Everyone...(taxi drivers) know it as Hotel Alfa. We loved the room and the cool modern bathroom. Plenty of hot water, great shower head, great a/c, very clean, hairdryer, huge windows, perfect mattress and covers, too. There are no views as it is in an industrial area near the airport (tho I don't remember hearing a single plane). We discovered that we could take bus 21 directly in front of the hotel for only 2 Euros each, right to the center of the city. We also found out that the last regular bus back runs at 11pm and you have to take two trains and a night bus to get back, but still, it drops you off right in front. We would recommend this place to anyone. All desk clerks spoke English and could tell you about tours and such. Oh, they had a Mac computer right in the lobby with quick links to Facebook, g-mail, yahoo and more, that you could use at any time.

Room Tip: facing the garden is a great spot There is one corner of the hotel that faces this direction.

My son and I liked this hotel. The staff was helpful spoke English, they had free internet, a 24 hour snack/toiletries shop, an indoor pool (small) and the room was very clean and contemporary. The check in and check out process were efficient. The onsite restaurant and café were fine, and reasonably priced. We thought the sandwiches we got from the café were good.

The hotel had a scale for weighing luggage but it was out of order. The reception area has a computer with internet access that is for the use of guests, and that made it easy to print our boarding passes.

The one downside is that the pale yellow walls of the halls where the hotel rooms are were pretty scuffed up. However, the room and bathroom were extremely clean.

As others have described the hotel, it is located in an industrial park but very close to the bus stop that goes right into central Barcelona. It is easy to use the bus. Plus, they had a free airport shuttle for going to or from the airport. The shuttle left right on time for the airport.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the city and the Olympic Stadium have a bit better view.

Looked at reviews on this hotel and was a bit dubious.
Not needed to worry. Staff were very pleasant, helpful and professional.
Rooms were contemporary and very clean, so too was the rest of the hotel.
Food was excellent.
There are no views of Barcelona and true it is in the middle of concrete buildings, but there is a bus stop outside which takes you into the centre of Barcelona for a few euros.
I would definitely stay here again and would rate this hotel 10/10
