Excellent location in las Ramblas... Walking distance to most of the attractions (Plaza Catalunya, Barrio Gotico, Boqueria, etc.), and close to the subway for those not so close, as Montjuic.
Rooms are clean and modern.
Convenient for dinning and shopping
Friendly staff ... Ana and Sergio went the extra mile! Both are very professional and customer service oriented.
Breakfast is excellent. Free Wi-Fi also appreciated.
Will definitively go back.. Highly recommended..

It's my second time at Royal Ramblas - it's one of the best hotels for your money, great location (subway, Barri Gótic, Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas, La Boquería) and a super friendly staff always there for your needs. I'd surely stay there again!

We were very pleased with this hotel not only for its location and a nice clean room but the desk attendants went out of their way to help us resolve an airline issue. This hotel was located right on the Rambla and was convenient for dining, shopping, and being in the heart of the action. It was very clean, well run, and what was important to us when we booked it was that it was reasonably priced. We will definitely stay there again when we return to Barcelona!

Room Tip: The action on the street in front of the hotel goes on all night long. Ask for a room toward the ba...

After researching thru TA we decided to stay at the Royal Ramblas, the location is excellent. Everything is walking distance, the rooms are a bit small if you are traveling with children. We still got to extra cods and were okay with it, try to book your room with breakfast included. We really enjoyed the breakfast, but if you are looking to have pancakes, sausages (American style) you will be disappointed. I strongly recommend it for those traveling with small children, the location is perfect.

The location of this hotel is amazing, right on Las Ramblas and right in the thick of things, near Catalunya Square where the hop on hop off buses stop. There is just so much to love about the area - great, inexpensive restaurants, shopping...

Room Tip: We loved our room overlooking Las Ramblas. The windows opened up to the tree-lined street.

Location :
The hotel is situated smack in the heart of las ramblas .....just a few steps away from the catalunya metro station. The catalunya square is also a 2 minute walk away where most of the hop on hop off tourist buses stop. ...The aero bus that takes you to the airport also has its stop there.

A 15min walk will take you to port Vell as well where you can find several shops , cinemas and restaurants.

Getting a taxi is no issue as there is a taxi stand right opposite the hotel.

Carrefour has a decent sized branch quite close to the hotel incase you want to get some groceries.

Rooms
We took the royal ramblas rooms design as you get views of las ramblas and free wifi. Modern contemporary decor with a bath tub in the washroom. Though the rooms aren't that big , we found the, to be quite clean and comfortable.

Staff
The staff at the royal ramblas is very helpful and always there to serve you with a smile

Breakfast
Do take the Buffett breakfast - has a good spread of goodies to take you through the day

Negatives
The only negative that I can think of is that rooms were small compared to the other hotels we stayed in Europe even after going for the royal ramblas design rooms.

All in all I had a great experience with the royal ramblas and would definitely recommend visitors to go for this hotel on their stay to barcelona.

the location is perfect , easy to access everything, centralized, friendly staff, nice furniture spacious spotless room, nice pizza & pasta restaurant , will definitely stay here again

the only downside is that wireless is very weak -not working in rooms- only in the lobby wonder is this an exception or that is the normal case

Room Tip: try the pizza and pasta restaurant of hotel
