“Nice Hotel, Good Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I stayed at Hotel Glories for 2 nights, as part of a college trip last year. The Hotel is around 30mns from Barcelona Airport, and very close to nearby bus stops and subway points,The surrounding areas are nice, quiet and close to cafes, restaurants and shops. There is also a small supermarket next door which is very cheap. The Sagrada Famillia is also around a 5mn walk away.
On arrival into the Hotel our rooms were not ready, we were given a space to put our luggage while we had a look around the city. The reception area is quite small, with a bar, seating area and some vending machines. Wifi is also available in this area. The Hotel has around 4 floors, and there are 2 lifts, The receptionist at the time spoke very good English, was polite and able to recommend some good restaurants to us in the evenings. The room I was sharing was very spacious, clean and modern. As the Hotel is on the road side, there is some noise from traffic but very little. Our room had twin beds in 2 parts and an en suite bathroom. The beds were comfortable, and made daily. The bathroom was also a good size, clean, fresh towels and had complimentary soaps/toiletries. Other services in the room included TV, AC, fridge, desk and plenty of wardrobe space.
Overall I would recommend this Hotel for guests wanting good value for money, a central location and a nice place to stay. :)

Hotel Glories is in a nice area and close to the metro. Approximately 5 minutes walk to Monumental station. Do not think it will be closer to Glories station. It is also easy to reach by bus. The hotel is very close to Sagrada Familia, even walking distance. They normally serve breakfast but we never had so I cannot review. The room was fairly large and clean. Bathroom was clean. Only trouble was that after the shower, all bathroom floor was getting wet but that's really a minor issue in my opinion. It is open 24 hr. Next door is a market where you can buy drinks or food. In the room there is a small fridge. There are also a safe, a TV, a hair dryer in the room. Wi-fi is free. Price was really affordable and much worth for the service.

Hola Gurcan A,

I would like to thank you for taking your time in making such a detailed review of your stay at Hotel Glòries.

It's a shame that no breakfast at the hotel.
Can choose buffet breakfast, 11 € per person or at the bar to have a with coffee and croissant for 2,30 €.

We look forward to welcoming you soon again at Hotel Glories!

Hola James B.,

Thank you for sharing your point of view of the Hotel Glories with other Tripadvisor readers.

I inform you that the air conditioning was turned off because the hotel system air only can choose, air conditioning or heating, the two options at once, sorry, but can not be. Now is the winter season with temperatures of 2 ° C - 5 ° C at night and for that reason the air aconditioning is off.

We look forward to welcome you back soon.

Yours faithfully

The hotel was easily to reach (subway only a few block away). The rooms were not very large but well equiped and clean. Staff was very adaquate and friendly. Also breakfast (buffet) was
good and with a wide choice of food.
This hotel is surely recommended for a short stay at Barcelona.

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.
