“Good location ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Nice hotel, good location for family visit, it is almost in the center of Barcelona, very clean rooms, friendly employee, very nice lobby bar, the view of the hotel is not good, standard rooms that they have if you compare it to other hotels it is smaller, good breakfast with multiple open buffi choices

My husband & I stayed for 4 nights prior to a Med Cruise at the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel. Among the many great choices of hotels in this great city, we are so glad we chose to stay at the Renaissance! This hotel is one block away from Passeig de Gracia ~ Barcelona's Rodeo Drive or 5th Avenue! The price & location is so amazing! Not to mention the great breakfast complete with Hamon Iberico & Hamon Serrano, Spanish sausages, different kinds of cheese, fruits, pastries, hot & cold food, fresh juices, espresso, cappuccino, etc. We looked forward to our daily breakfast! The cafe is on the second floor and from it's big windows you can watch the hustle & bustle of Barcelona life right from your seat!
Our room was on the 8th floor. From our window, you can see the Sagrada Familia. The room and bathroom was on the small side ~ comparing to our Las Vegas standard. However, we found everything to be comfortable and we were able to have good night's sleep after a long day of sightseeing & walking. We did enjoy the nice shower with good water pressure! Also, they provide special toiletries from Tokyo Milk.
The staff at the hotel ~ in every department were all very friendly and hospitable. Special thanks to Navigator Luis! Also, Special thanks to the ladies at the Cafe! Always service with a smile!!
Concierge Maya helped us plan our 4 days. We are so thankful that she spent time to explain to us all our options and gave us a great itinerary for our 4 days! For an overview of Barcelona, Take the Barcelona Bus Turistic, We took the 3 different lines to see all parts of the city. You only pay once and you get to ride the routes all day. You can buy the bus tickets at the Concierge Desk at a discount. If you have time, take the Monserrat tour.
Overall, I greatly recommend the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel!! We will definitely be staying here again next time we visit Barcelona!

First, the location is excellent. The hotel recognized my Marriott Platinum level status by offering my choice of beverage and snack but only continental breakfast. For me, it was okay as I am a light breakfast eater.. The "but" is related to the paper thin walls - someone had a baby in a room at the end of the hall which I could hear and then the shower pressure is a little off, which means that when someone above you is using the water, yours will be at a dribble, then when they are using hot, yours will be cold, etc etc..so you are constantly adjusting it, and it's always the opposite of what you want it to be..

Excellent accommodations. We had an upgraded room which was very spacious, quiet and comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful, and the breakfast buffet was outstanding. I especially loved the view looking out the large windows from the buffet area. On another note, I thought I left something in the room. I e-mailed the hotel, and they responded back immediately.
I did find it later on in my suitcase but was happy that they were quick to address the situation with their housekeeping dept. All in all, a great stay and would definitely recommend this hotel to others and will stay here again when we return to Barcelona.

We stayed at the Renaissance the week of November 23 thru to December 1 to spend Thanksgiving with our son who was studying in Barcelona for the semester. The family had a great experience. The rooms were spacious, the amenities in the rooms were terrific and the breakfast buffet they served each day was wonderful. The location was excellent and central to the many sights of the city which were within walking distance.

Most importantly we received great service throughout our stay. We wanted to especially thank Marc, Albert and Yara at the front desk/concierge. All three went out of their way to make our family welcomed during the week. We can not say enough of their hospitality!! We would highly recommend the Renaissance to anyone traveling to Barcelona.Thanks again to the wonderful staff there.

This was my honeymoon trip and staying in this hotel made it all the sweeter! We arrived after a long flight early in the morning and our rooms were ready and check-in was efficient. We would want to thank the lady who checked us in twice (sorry we forgot your name!) but we sincerely appreciate your efforts. We loved the rooms which were fitted with posh toilets. A great start to our honeymoon!

The location as mentioned by so many other reviews, was excellent. One block away from the main shopping street and the metro. It really makes a big difference.

Front desk staff were always welcoming, and we would like to convey our sincerest thanks to Albert who looked out for us. Sincere and unassuming, just plain warm and professional service. Albert if you can read this, thank you!

Definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and without a doubt when we are back in Barcelona, this will be our hotel of choice.
