We booked the Astoria well in advance with very little knowledge of Barcelona. We were quietly surprised on check in, the location is very good. It's easy to get everywhere with a metro station just 5 mins walk away, a taxi rank opposite and many bars and restaurants in easy walking distance.
The entrance to the hotel was very grand with some fabulous style. Whilst our room didn't quite emulate this it was clean and perfectly functional for our short stay. The shower was fab and the bed / pillows very comfy.
The breakfast was OK not spectacular and I wouldn't have paid €14 which is the standard charge but for €8 on an offer it was alright value. If we did it again we'd probably look elsewhere.
Despite the breakfast this is a great hotel which for the price and location we would definitely re-visit and recommend. Barcelona is a wonderful city to visit and the Astoria the perfect base to explore.
