Reviewed February 1, 2013

We stayed for three nights at this hotel bed and breakfast. It was perfect for us, the room was very clean, bed comfortable. The staff went out of their way to help us-they were even able to make bookings at external restaurants and when we checked in our request for a certain type of room was "not a problem!" The hotel is only a short walk at a couple of blocks from the nearest metro station, and from there you can travel all over Barcelona very easily,quickly, and cheaply!
To summise if you're looking for a break in Barcelona, you want friendly available staff, good food, clean rooms at an excellent price but don't mind travelling on the metro i'd recommend staying at Hotel Glories.

The hotel is situated very near to the la Familia Sagrada and very near to a metro station, so Access to the rest of Barcelona was very easy. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the free wifi is excellent - available in the main lobby area and in the rooms. The rooms are spacious and the shower was fab! Considering what we paid for this hotel we were very pleasantly surprised with breakfast which was a buffet and included a large range of cereals; fruit, yoghurts, cold meats and cheese, breads, cakes and bacon, egg and sausage. There was a range of fruit juices, good quality coffe from a machine, tea and a toaster available. The staff were very accommodating and happy to move tables around to accommodate groups wanting to sit together. All in all very good value for money. We would definitely stay here again

Near to Major road Junction so can be a bit noisy.
But benefits from being within easy walking of Sagrada Familia and next door to the Bull Ring now a museum.
Easy to find reasonable priced bars and restaurants at road most road junctions.

Room Tip: Dont think you can avoid road noise

We had a room in the basement and could not identify at the time of booking.
The rooms are very noisy.
Too expensive for what is offered.

Stayed for two nights prior to cruise. Good location - particularly for Sagrada Familia- with plenty of places to eat locally. The highlight was the friendly and helpful reception staff - they are a real credit to the hotel. Rooms were clean, relatively quiet and ideal for our needs. Just one negative - the mattress was so firm I wouldn't have liked to have slept more that two nights on it.

Room Tip: Despite previous reviewers' comments, we had a basement room. Would happily stay there again (wi...

This was the hotel with the best price/quality ration when I was trying to book a 3 night stay in Barcelona this September and, trying to keep this trip as low cost as possible, I made the right choice.
The staff is very helpful and extremely nice, the hotel looked good and well kept, which is always a plus when you first come through the front door, and offered to keep our bags before we could check-in and after we checked-out for free.

The only negative points of this stay was the extremely poor sound-proofing of the rooms. We could easily hear EVERYTHING from the other rooms and after 9AM it was impossible to sleep from all the noise coming from the housekeeping activities in the hallways, especially when using the vacuum cleaner.

The other negative point was that one day we left the room around noon and in spite of having placed the "Clean this Room" on the outside of the bedroom door, when we came back around 10PM the room wasn't touched and the wet towels were not replaced.
On the other hand, this hotel had the best wifi connection I've ever used, also for free!
It's also really close to the "Monumental" metro station, which was a really nice PLUS.

If and when I'm back in Barcelona I'll be checking this hotel again while choosing my stay BUT the poor sound-proofing is so extreme I'll be doing it very reluctantly. All in all, 4/5.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms on the floors below the ground, they are the closest to the restaurant/breakfast roo...
