“Very good city hotel in great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

Super city hotel on a quiet street in the St Gervasi area. It is very convenient for the Ramon Llull University where I was attending a conference, but it's also only 15 mins by metro to the Ramblas. Room was a nice size and finished in a modern style. breakfast very good. Free WiFi with good signal strength in the lobby, but very weak in the room. £80 per night B&B.

Stayed June 2012, traveled solo

We stayed at Silken Sant Gervasi in Barcelona because we had a meeting the following day in the same street and moreover we needed a garage.
The entrance is quite welcoming. The garage is cramped, but that's often the case in city hotels.
The room and the bathroom are large, with TV set and minibar. The bed is good. Just one sink in such a large bathroom for a double room is a shame. The hotel shows some wear: some fixtures and tiles were broken in the bathroom, the wall to wall carpet in the corridor has stains.
The street in front of the hotel is quite busy, even at night, and the window is not up to the task. The rooms directly on the street should have a second window (on the outside?) to block the traffic noise.
Wifi is free but you cannot access your email on just any program, you need to use a browser.
The staff is helpful enough but they lack sympathy and motivation; probably a symptom of poor management.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the street at all cost !

My husband and I and another couple arrived in Barcelona on a Thursday evening after a long flight and we were going to catch a cruise on Saturday afternoon. We wanted a hotel away from the La Rambla area, in a quieter area where we could sleep. The St. Gervasi was just what we needed. It was quiet, clean, very close to the subway stop, El Putxet, which takes you right down to the La Rambla area and it had a good selection of foods for breakfast, although it was not included in your room rate. I think the breakfast was 8 Euros, if I remember. There was no coffeepot in the room, but that may be normal for 2-3 star hotels in Europe. The bed was good, the staff were very helpful and spoke English well. We stayed there only two nights, but would return if in Barcelona again. One note not concerning the hotel: the subway system is extensive in Barcelona and will get you to the tourist destinations, but it can be confusing to use at first.
If you stay in this hotel and take the El Putxet station to go to Catalunya station (where La Rambla begins), beware that the train goes to Pl Molina station where you have to get off and cross over the lines by a stair bridge to get on a different line or you'll end up going back to the El Putxet station. If you're staying longer than we did, you'll figure it out quickly. All in all, good hotel.

We were initially thinking about the location as it was a bit away from plaza cataluniya however we got used to the area.It quiet and convienitly located .2-3 mins away from the El putxet metro station.You can take the aero bus form the airport for 6euros get off at plaza cataluniya and take metro L6 .which will cost only 2 euros.However the cab rate from plaza catalunia to the hotel is around 8-11 euros depending on the traffic.Clean rooms, free wifi ,staff were friendly and helpful.
There is a small supermarket right infront of the hotel.If you buy the group ticket for 9 euros there are 10 tickets in one two people can still use it travel within zone 1.
We found a nice tapas bar Tapazee in Plaza Cataluniya,it was quite cheap compared to other tapas bars and good food .Safe Hotel
Overall we had a good stay in Barcelona

Silken St. Gervasi Hotel was a great discovery. Me and my fiancee stayed in this hotel in October for 3 nights and we had wonderful stay. The staff were friendly, rooms were bright and spacious. The cleaning were done regularly and towels were changed everyday. The location is good because it's 2-3mins away from the El putxet station. The neighbourhood is quiet and away from the chaos and traffic of the city centre. I will definitely reccomend this and I will surely go back to this Hotel.

Immaculate little hotel!! Simple, nice and very clean, furniture was new, no scratches or stains, soft comfortable beds. Traveller's kit a pleasant bonus. Extremely helpful staff, bless them.
Living in a touristic place, I could say this 3* could even rival some of our 4 & 5 stars in terms of being neat and clean.
No balcony and the view to the back yard was quite shabby but who cares when you run around sightseeing all day and just switch off on your soft bed after a nice hot bath.

A very nice hotel with modern, clean rooms and excellent service. The value for money was frankly unbelievable, and the location is excellent for the city centre, airport and all the sights we wanted to see. If I ever return to Barcelona, it will definitely be to this hotel.
