“Good 4 star hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Not to far from metro and tram stops, great service with good rooms. Easy access to champ nou and close to red / blue bus day tours pick up points. Free wifi, but you will pay extra for a room facing the street, also shower room arrangement was strange, but didnt spoil our stay.

Just came back from a weekend in barcelona. This hotel had nice and clean rooms and is priced fairly compared to other 4*s. the location is great - the busiest road in the financial centre (though a good 10 mins walk to the nearest metro station)
Front desk staff was very unhelpful otherwise I would have scored this hotel a 4.

We needed just a one night stay in Barcelona before boarding a cruise ship. Usually I stay on Las Ramblas, however, hotels were pricey there and I was also looking for something different since Las Ramblas can be a little shady with lots of pickpockets and sex shops. Hesperia Presidente was a perfect choice. It's very reasonably priced, in a great location on the Diagonal, and within walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants. The hop on/hop off stops just across the street. There's a Starbucks located on the street behind the hotel, there's a nice grocery within a block, and two good restaurants I recommend, Casa Jordie and La Sangiovesa are within 1-2 blocks. The rooms are large for European hotels, ours (1108) had a bathtub, amenities are nice and there's an in-room safe, mini frig, and blow dryer. Wifi is free and fast. I was disappointed that there wasn't a coffee/tea pot in the room, but as I mentioned, Starbucks is close. Beds and linens were very nice and comfy. I will definitely stay here on my next visit.

Room Tip: Upper floors have less street noise

The Hotel is fantastic, the location is great, 10 minute from underground (Diagonal) and 5 minute from train station (mountaner). The rooms are clean and adequate, the breakfast is gorgeous and the staff are happy to help you in your needs.

I stayed for 6 nights in April 2013 and it was a good experience.
The staff were attentive and while I spoke no Spanish, the team of course was conversant in English which was very helpful.
The front desk and room service teams were excellent, efficient and friendly.
Definitely recommend to a business or leisure traveler.
The only downside for me was the breakfast time on weekends which is at 0800hrs. The hotel should amend this to 0700 since some clients I am sure have morning flights and would like to have breakfast prior to check out.

Just for one night, but enough to appreciate the spacious room and the breakfast buffet, the sleep quality is also superb. Wi-fi if fast enough and free. Price-quality not easy to find everywhere, even in such a bustling city.
This hotel is very close to the Ramblas, so very central. Honestly I think I will consider again next time I'll be in BCN.

We visited Hesperia Presidente on May of 2012, and all in all everything was great. The hotel is really close to all major streets so you can walk to visit La Rambla, the rooms were modern, clean, and the bathroom was excellent! The only downside is that our room faced the busy street of Avinguda Diagonal and when you opened the window there was some noice but that did not bother us. If you want to explore the city of Barcelona and stay in a great hotel with really good prices then this is the place to visit :)
