Excellent location, very close- walking distance- to Las Ramblas, the main street for tourists in Barcelona. The breakfast was good, the staff was helpful, the rooms were good. And if you book in advance, you can get great deals on the prices. We were about 15 of us and got a fantastic rate.

Great 'business-type' hotel. In a good position, metro right outside and ten mins walk to ramblas. Breakfast was really good, and served quite late. Room was big, ours was at the back so quiet. Only small complaint was the bed was a standard double, in such a big room a king size would be good, it was also slightly hard. Was quite good that there was bbc1 and bbc2 on the tv too! Not that you spend much time watching tv in Barcelona!

The hotel is located close to la ramblas (about 15 min walk) so is perfectly local to this part of Barcelona. The hotel itself is very clean and the staff are helpful, however, we did ask for our fridge to be repaired as it wasn't working, and this was never done. We were only staying for three nights so we didn't ask again. Apart from that, the staff were very good with respect to showing you different locations on a map of places to visit.

The hotel has a taxi rank located right outside its doors, which was very handy, and there is a metro stop 1 minute walk away, which makes getting around very easy. Upon booking, we were allocated a 'Queen' bed, however, when we arrived, this was just two single bed pushed together, and the beds were movable so beware of the gap inbetween!!!

The walls of the rooms are quite thin, and we could hear the people in the neighbouring rooms, but this wasn't a problem for us. On the friday night, we slept with the window open, and could hear the music from the nightclub until quite late into the night, so beware if you like to sleep with a window open! None of this was a problem to us, its just nice to be aware.

Overall, this is a nice, clean hotel in a good location and I would stay again.

Dear Guest,

We appreciate the time taken to leave your comments after your stay.
It is so fulfilling for us to know that cleanliness and staff service is well appreciated by you. However, we would really like to apologise because the incidence you reported was not resolved during your stay. If you are so kind, we would really appreciate if you can let us know the room number where you were staying so we can find out the reason why it was not solved. It is not usual at all and it is so useful for us to have this information in order to avoid it to happen again.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for anything you may need, we remain at your entire disposal.

Warm regards,
Guest Experience Manager

We stayed at the TRYP Barcelona Apolo hotel from the 8th-11th Feb 2013, and because it was booked as a package city-break through lastminute.com we weren't expecting much more than a Traveloge kind of standard, We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived - it was a 'proper' hotel with a lovely foyer and very well presented with friendly staff. A porter took our bags to our room and we were very impressed by the size of it, especially as it was one of their economy rate rooms. It was beautifully clean and tidy and the bathroom was immaculate.

We ate at the buffet breakfast on our first morning and the selection of food was great and was frequently topped up by kitchen staff. We were happy to discover that we were approximately a ten minute walk from La Rambla and there was a Metro station outside the hotel along with lots of taxis.

The only draw backs to the room were:
- it was on the 6th floor so it was really hot and stuffy, even with the giant (and pretty scary) window open we couldn't seem to get much air in. This was February so I dread to think what it'd be like in the summer!
- the room was a double but we were faced with two single beds pushed together, not really the best for a romantic weekend away! For this reason we have given an 'average' sleep score, however the beds themselves were really comfy - we especially loved the pillows!

I'd definitely recommend this hotel for a couple who'd like a budget city break and don't mind a short walk to La Rambla, just specify a proper double bed!

Room Tip: Ask for a double bed, rather than two singles pushed together!

This is my second visit to this hotel, you can't ask for more where location is concerned and also value for money. The hotel is kept extremely clean and rooms are very comfortable. The only niggle I have this time was the reception staff on arrival and check out were "miserable" and not very accommodating. We got to the hotel around 10.30am. We were told we couldn't book in til 3! We were never offered to have our bags stored, literally told come back at 3. Until the lovely conceige man came and offered to take our bags and gave us a ticket.
Would come back, but maybe next try another hotel on Las Ramblas just to see.

Dear Guest,
It is great to know you visited us for a second time and even greater to know you spent a good time with us in Barcelona. However, we are so concerned about the service you received at the front desk since it is not usual at all to have such a feedback. Our check in time is from 15.00h and we offer the possibility to leave the luggage in our storage rooms to all our guests. We really apologize for this matter but at the same time we appreciate you just let us know so we can double check our service standards.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for anything you may need and we hope we have the chance to receive you back for a third time!

Warm regards,
Guest Experience Manager

Took my boyfriend here at the beginning of December, for 4 nights, as a surprise for his 21st birthday. The hotel was beautifully decorated with Christmas decorations. The room was very modern and big, and had a good, clean bathroom. One down side was that they had given us a twin room, and not a double. Also, even when the windows were shut, it was very load, and could still hear the traffic and metro quite clearly. As we had free breakfast in the hotel, this is the only meal we ever ate in there, and i could not fault it. Although, not a huge dining area, they had a wide variety of food, from full English to chocolate muffins. The hotel was situated right by the metro station or a 10 minute walk to Las Ramblas. Also, wasn't a very long journey from the airport. For the price i paid for this hotel, and the fact we had free breakfast and free WiFi i can not complain. i would highly recommend this hotel for anybody in a similar situation as myself.

Hotel was clean, tidy and staff friendly.

We didn't eat in the hotel apart from breakfast each of the 3 mornings and that was very good witha good buffet selection from eggs n bacon to fruit and cerial etc.

We stayed in Feb 2013 and the rooms on the 1st floor were being decorated so a bit of upheaval and paint smell but this did not distract from a good visit and would certainly stay here again if in Barcalona.

The metro lines 2 and 3 have a stop right outside the hotel. Taxi to airport was 35 euro
