“Perfect Location, Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2011

Being in a city like Barcelona requires that you stay where the "action" is. The Royal Ramblas cannot be in a better spot.
We arrived early but that was not a problem for the staff. they were able to accommodate us temporarily until our room was ready. Our room was one on the Royal Floor (Planta Royal). Very nice, very modern and a view of the Ramblas. There was lots of activity on Las Ramblas but we could not hear anything.
There is no restaurant in the hotel but they have an association with the restaurant next door. for 12 euros you can get an buffet breakfast but, there are so many places within minutes open and available that you have endless possibilities. The market (St Josep La Boqueria), a 5 minute walk, is by far the best place for breakfast (or lunch or tapas).
A very good hotel, very helpful staff and perfect location is hard to find. We were lucky to have found the Royal Ramblas Hotel.

Room Tip: Bring electrical adapters for your devices. Very limited wi-fi (one hour free) with poor quality and...

Great location, right on Las Ramblas (the main pedestrian walking street). Close to everything including the Gothic Quarter, market and Catayluna Square. Rooms have been recently updated. Very clean with all the modern conveniences. Shower available in some rooms. Our room had a view of Las Ramblas great for people wtaching and was very quite as there were double windows.

Room Tip: Design View room comes with a rain shower and a view of Las Ramblas (I believe).

Pros: awesome location in the middle of everything, very quiet (despite room facing street), very clean, helpful front desk

Only one con: bed was uncomfortable

would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

We stayed at the Royal Ramblas before and after we cruised on the Med. Fantastic location, very clean and very helpful and friendly staff.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room in Barcelona ask for an inside room and you won't hear a thing!

Location is everything with Royal Ramblas! Situated on La Rambla just 200M from Placa Catalunya you are in the very heart of this magnificent city. We booked on line direct with the hotel and everything was just fine, paying on departure. We had a Ramblas View recently refurbished room which was fully insulated from outside noise and with efficient air con. The room was spacious, modern and well equipped (although a kettle was ludicrously 3EU. a day extra). The hotel has very limited public areas and no bar, but there are a few hundred within walking distance!
Breakfast is 12EU and not worth the money.We booked breakfast but wouldn't do so again.
Overall a satisfactory experience, if a little expensive. Would return.

Room Tip: Ramblas View Rooms are newly refurbished,

We stayed at the Royal Ramblas hotel this summer for one night after returning from a cruise. The hotel is situated right on Las Ramblas, the main street in Barcelona. Even though the hotel is located right on Las Ramblsa, which can be quite noisy, you can't hear any street noise from your room in the hotel. The hotel's location puts you within walking distance from many of Barcelona's key attractions. Inside, the hotel is incredibly clean and modern. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and since we arrived very early in the morning after our cruise and our room was not ready, they had no problem holding our bags while we went out to explore the city.

My only complaint was that the interior walls of the hotel are a little too thin. You can hear doors slamming to other rooms during the night. It is just something to be aware of if you are a light sleeper. If this was improved, the hotel would be 100% perfect!

One plus is that the hotel does have triples, which is difficult to find in Barcelona's hotels.

I would definitely recommend this hotel for a trip to Barcelona!

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of Las Ramblas. The windows are soundproofed so you don't have to...

We recently stayed at Royal Ramblas and had a wonderful room with an amazing view of Las Ramblas. The hotel was spotless and the bed was so comfortable. There was no noise from the outside at all. We did not eat at the hotel restaurant, so we cannot comment on that. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We did have someone outside our door at around 3 a.m. who was probably drunk; he was yelling that he was from the UK wanted his cup of tea brought to him. He then started yelling that there was a fire and kept yelling fire, fire. We were afraid to open our door, so I called down to the desk and they told me he was probably in the hallway just having a cigarette and would probably be going back to his room shortly. It was at least another 15 to 20 minutes later that he finally left. I just wish the front desk handled this differently, as it was upsetting to hear someone yell "fire" in the middle of the night and not have anyone check out what he was doing. I would have given this hotel 5-stars had it not been for the way they handled the drunk guy outside of our door. Our daughter and her family were in the room next to us and they were also awakened by this man yelling fire and were frightened by him.

I have to note that the elevators were not slow at all. Read reviews that the elevators were very slow, but we did not encounter that problem at all.
