This hotel was of a high quality and although a little way away from many of the tourist attractions, (although very near to the Sagrada Familia) it was only a few minutes to the nearest tube station. A bit of a walk to restaurants. The staff were helpful and friendly and helped me out a few times with maps and directions. I complained about noisy people in the room next door and they dealt with it immediately.

Room Tip: People often mentioned the street noise but I did not have a problem with this and was facing the st...

We arrived late in the evening but had a friendly reception and good advice on where to go for a meal. The room was warm (very cold weather) and facilities good, though we were not so keen on the two-single-beds pushed together to make a double and would have preferred a duvet to the sheet and blanket. There was a good range of nice toiletries in the bathroom.
The breakfast staff were delightful and helpful, and there was a good selection of food catering for every taste.
The hotel is very conveniently situated for the metro and the tourist bus, which runs from the Segrada Familia, a ten minute walk away.
It made an excellent base for the three days we spent in Barcelona and we would recommend it to anybody wanting a reasonably priced short stay hotel.

The hotel was a 5 min walk away from La sagrada Familia & the room was nice & the stay was pleasant & we could connect to the free wifi. Taxi was easily accessible & public transport also. A buffet breakfast was available & there was a patisserie very close by that provided delicious pastries & croissants & coffee.

Me and my boyfriend were situated in a room at fifth floor. The room was small but excellent for what we were looking for. It was really quiet room and there was no problem with sleeping. The place of hotel is near 3 metro stations on foot so that is another great supplemet to say that this hotel worthed every money we spend. Maybe we didn't search well for restaurants but we didn't find something good to eat for dinner so we were more enthusiastic with breakfast in our hotel. It was really really good. Like we made it for ourselves. People on the reception were verry friendly and helpful. And the service in hotel was more than excellent. Every day they change our linen, towels and other stuff. If we ever come back to Barcelona the hotel Glories will be our choice again!! Thak you for memories :)

My stay at Hotel Glories was very pleasant, and made my short trip to Barcelona much more enjoyable. The receptionist was able to help me with all of my questions about the city in good English. The hotel wi-fi was free of charge and the connection was fast. If I have to look for something negative to say about my stay, the room wasn't sound insulated very well and the guests in a neighboring room were loud. Overall though, I'd definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for an extra long weekend January '13, excelleny location on the main road to the right there is a bus stop (H12) that takes you along to the old bullring shopping centre, at the top of the road to your left is the Monumental metro station & view of the Sargrada famillia which u can walk to in less than 5 minutes. To reach the new Glories shopping centre(head for the big blue/red tower) turn right out of the hotel to the main rd & then left under the flyover which is within 5-10 minutes walk. Yes I did say flyover its the only thing that would maybe put people off staying here as u can hear the traffic at the bottom of the street which can be noisy depending what room your in... The hotel itself is spotless & clean, the rooms are large, I was in a room with adjoining room big enough for 4 even thou there was only 2 of us. There is a tv & fridge in the room but no tea/coffee making facilities which was a bit disappointing, there is a vending machine downstairs in the foyer though.Bathroom has bath with shower & bidet & a good supply of essential toiletries, Breakfast is continental buffet style, tables can be reserved which is maybe advisable as its not a massive room & could be very busy at the hight of summer. All in all I would stay here again & hope for the same room as it has the adjoining room at the back where its quiter.

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.
