“Value for your money”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

The best part is the pricing. 39-50€ per night, it`s a good value IF you are looking for budget accomondation(large groups, young couples, teens, local businessmen). Take a 2 star "apartamentos" from Gran Can, push it together with a old 3 star hotel facilities and throw it away from the city center and there it is, Hesperia Sant Joan Suites. Continental breakfast ok, but as a scandie, i absolutely hate that there is nothing green. Common in spain (and in Germany..) IF you stay avarage hotels. The outdoor pool looks nice in pictures and from the high floors, when you get there, not so nice anymore,claustrophobic is the word. Bring your earplugs, there is no sound insulation in the hotel, zero, nada. There is possibillity to book private sauna and jacuzzi for 12€ per 60min, or 6€ per 30min, old but nice, i did like it. Dinner was fine, very avarage. The location, area, is very safe. Staff is very nice. Because this not leisure hotel and out of touristic zone, you need lot of sign language :)

Had a two night stay here in June. The purpose of the stay was to watch Barcelona play Malaga at Camp Nou. The hotel was a long way from the airport but a bus journey costing 2 Euros each dropped us outside of the hotel door. The room was spotless. Had two bedrooms, a dining table and an unused hob, sink and microwave. The reason they were unused was because there wasn't one piece of cutlery. crockery or even a kettle. If we had asked at reception they would have ordered them for us. Rather strange. The tram station was a short walk away and we travelled to Camp Nou easily and also the next day into Las Ramblas. On return to the hotel we would have loved a glass of wine but the restaurant wasn't open, nearby bars were closed (Sunday) and the local supermarket also. There wasn't a mini bar in the room. If we return we will need to be more organised and order everything from reception on arrival and stock up from the supermarket - not ideal. Staff very friendly and helpful apart from being advised that kick off was 9 pm (because Barca always kick off at that time!) when it was in fact 7pm. Fortunately we ignored that advice and saw great exhibition football from Barca.

We have just got back from a 3 night stay at this hotel, the rooms were absolutely fine with a kitchen area, we found the fridge very useful, however if you wanted to use the kitchen then you had to request utensils from reception!

This room was booked as part of a groupon deal to watch the Moto GP, the circuit was around 90mins away by trains or 60euros each way in a taxi, the hotel didn't help with the travel or run a shuttle bus which we all thought was poor.

After a long day at the races on the Saturday and Sunday we were shocked to find that bar and restaurant were closed at the weekend after breakfast. Breakfast was open from 8am which wasn't any good as we had to leave the hotel at 7.30 in order to make the long journey to the circuit.

The rest of the hotel was fine, all clean and tidy, there was a small pool.

From the airport the number 77 bus takes you to the door for 2euros of 20euros in a taxi.

Overall we enjoyed our stay but perhaps made the wrong choice for the racing.

Had a great 3 night stay here and can report as follows. Bus L77 - straight from Airport to Hotel for 2 Euros. Runs every 30 mins. Room was excellent - seperate bedroom, balcony overlooking pool, nice and clean, lovely towels. Asked for a catering "set" and we were all OK. Did not have breakfast but retsurant looked very pleasant. Reception staff were very helpful at all times and knowledgeable - steered us to supermarket and local restaurant. Pool was very clean but a bit cold, plenty of sunbeds. Trnasport to Barcelona was excellent - Tram 3 then Underground Line 3 - about 40 minutes - both run very frequently. All in all, excellent vakue for money and a place I would recommend

Read so many confusing reviews about this place. Me and my friend really enjoyed our stay here. Rooms very clean,spacious, 2 LCD tvs in both living and bedroom areas. We were surprised the kitchenette had no pans,cutlery,etc but after talking to reception they were all delivered in 1 hour:) mini bar service available- prices too high so we didn't avail. Great supermarket - Mercadona nearby with all fresh fish,veg and fruit. We made our own food. Tried hotel breakfast once...noting special. Will review the hotel gym as haven't found anything about it in previous reviews:) well equipped,cardio stations old,wouldn't use it as it looks like its gonna fall apart but then cardio can be done outside:) back exercises can be done 10/10 bit bad on dumbbells, no weight marks on any, dodgy looking but were there is a will there is a way:) overall have been to a few hotel gyms and for that price i would give it a 6 out of 10 which is not bad:)will defo return, metro stations nearby,we loved to walk as thats what we do! Enjoy ur stay!

Room Tip: 7 th floor rooms have nice views:)

The hotel is of very good value and average all in all in terms o location and cleanliness.

Location: you can reach easily to the hotel from the airport by the L77 bus for 2 euros. Then to the city center( placa catalunya, Las Ramblas, etc ..) it takes like 40 mins coz u need to take the T3 train until Palau Reial/Maria christina stations .. And then take the L3 metro to your desires destination. So connecting to the city center is very easy.
There are few shops near the hotel as well where you can buy your stuff.
Rooms are bigg and clean. Only our sofa was a bit old, but floors, bed, toilet, kitchen are all clean.
Reception and service very helpful and prompt.
Overall, me and my wife had a good stay and I recommend it for its value.

Hotel clean and tidy.ask at reception for a kettle on arrival as there won't be one in your room.only used this as some where to sleep room self catering but basic,fridge noisy so turn it off at night.got there late everything was shut so we asked at reception and they pointed us in the direction of a 24 hour petrol station with mini market that sold drinks ,sandwiches,microwave meals only 1 minute walk during the day there is a supermarket nearby.we stayed on the 8 th floor room 813.on the last night 812 was so noisy we decided at 2 am to wait in reception for our 5.30 am bus we told night reception and they replied sorry about that and that was it.when leaving airport get the l77 bus it stops right outside hotel and only cost 2 euro pp.taxi cost 38.75 euro.bus takes 40 mins.there was only me and my son so this was an ideal stop for us as we were up early and back late.to visit Barcelona tram stop is 5 min walk get a T3 zone 1 ticket it gives you 10 credits which you can share it also allows you to use buses in that zone. 2 credits to get to barcelona and 1 ticket to nou camp.i hope this helps
