Tryp Barcelona Apolo Hotel
Ranked #286 of 515 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Just came back from a long weekend in Barcelona.

Super happy of the hotel, that has a very good location only 10 mins walking to the ramblas, 5 mins from the harbour and with a metro stop on its doorstep with direct line to sagrada familia and park guell.

I was worried for the noise reported by other reviewers but I asked for a quiet room and I was given a room on the top floor (6th) facing the avenida. There was little noise from the street but in a city as barcelona you can`t really avoid it.

The room was good, with everything you expect from a 4* hotel room. maybe a bit tired but very cosy and spacious. From our balcony we could see a good stretch of the city: hills ahead and sea on the side.

Breakfast was excellent with a huge variety of choices and good quality ingredients.

This will be definitely the choice for our next trip in the city, highly recommended.

Room Tip: request a room on a high floor, some rooms on floor 5 and 6 have a little balcony.

Dear Guest,

Super happy! This is how our whole team is after reading your review! Drawing from your comments we see you have visited Sagrada Familia and Park Güell, both are a “must” in Barcelona so well done!
A complete breakfast gives us energy to face the day and make the most of every moment, right? Thank you for your kind words and for the time taken to leave them.
We are so looking forward to receive you back!

Warm regards,
Guest Experience Manager

We stayed here in February 2013, and chose the hotel mainly for its location and price. As others have said, it's very well situated, about 5 minutes' walk from La Rambla, 10-15 minutes from the sea and, in the other direction, from Placa de Catalunya (which is where the airport bus stops). apart from that, it was fine for what we wanted - clean, comfortable, friendly and good value for money. No complaints really.

We have just come back from our stay at the Tyrp Apolo, stayed there for 3 nights for our 25th wedding anniversary. The hotel is very clean, tidy, pleasant. Close to all transport and walking distance to many sights. The staff were all very friendly and spoke good English. The location is perfect, but as it is on a busy main road, can be a little noisy during the day, once 11pm comes everything seems to go silent, perfect. One disadvantage to our room was that we had to request tea & coffee facilities to be put in our room, but that wasn't hard to do....Breakfast was brilliant - so much to choose from...looking forward to going back

Dear Guest,

How great is to know that you spent your 25th anniversary with us, and even greater is to know that you had a fantastic stay!
We pay special attention to your comments in regards the kettle in the room; kettle in Spain is not as usual as it is in England and so far it is not a standard of our TRYP rooms. However, it is included in our Premium rooms and it can also be previously booked in the room for a supplement of 6€. Thank you so much for all the information you have shared with us and we look forward to receiving you back soon!!

Warm regards,
Guest Experience Manager

We stayed at the Tyrp Barcelona Hotel in February. The location of this hotel was excellent. Train station and bus stop outside the hotel. Taxi rank just outside hotel. On arrival we were given a twin room on the main road, the noise was really bad. I went back to reception and asked for a quiet room. I was allocated room 469 a lovely room over looking courtyard, no traffic. From our window you could see the cable cars. I booked half board at the hotel . Breakfast was excellent help your self, lots to choose from. Dinner was a set meal every night and not much to choose from you had to collect voucher every night from reception meal was served in the restaurant next door, not in hotel. Do not recommend half board. You colud eat out cheaper. Lots of bars and restaurant near hotel. Supermarket either side of road. This is not a 4 star hotel.

Room Tip: Room 432 on the main busy road. Room 469 on the back very quiet 4th Floor

My husband and I have just returned from a 4 night stay in Barcelona and were really pleased with the Tryp Apolo hotel. We arrived on a Sunday at 10:30am and were greeted by Jorge at the front desk. He was very helpful and told us that although check in is at 3pm if we signed up for the loyalty card (which was free) we could check in straight away, so we did! We had room 320 which had everything we needed - comfy beds, a hot shower and tea/coffee facilities. The only problem was that we had requested a double and this was a twin where the beds kept sliding away from each other. We went to reception again to request a double which was swiftly given on the 2nd floor but on entering this room, it wasn't as nice as the first one. The bed was hard, there was no view, no tea/coffee facilities and the bathroom was smaller. I went back to see Jorge and he very kindly gave us the first room again.

The location is perfect - it's a 10/15min stroll to Las Ramblas and Paral-lel metro is a 1 min walk from the hotel. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance and the breakfast was plentiful with a great choice of items.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to others - yes the bathrooms and rooms may need sprucing up but if you are wanting a centrally located hotel which is great value for money then you won't be disappointed. :)

exactly as you would expect from a central location four star hotel. 5 mins walk from bottom of La Ramblas and harbour area. Next to metro. Bedrooms very nice,extremely clean. breakfasts-i like my food and there was plenty of choice. hotel reception very pleasant and helpful. Front bedrooms are a bit noisy from traffic but as you would expect from location.we left some valuables in a drawer and have emailed and found out they are keeping them safe at reception to be sent back via post. Thnk you Apolo.

Me and my husband have just returned from a lovely weekend in Barcelona. We decided to try the TRYP APOLO hotel as I managed to get a cheap deal through the company I work for. I didn't expect very much as we paid very little but I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The reception staff were friendly and knowledgable, the room was very clean and was serviced everyday and we loved the location as there was a metro station outside the hotel giving us easy links to tourist areas.

Our rate included breakfast which offered a variety of things to choose from. It wasn't a typical English breakfast but the hotel has to cater for all different nationalities and there was plenty to eat.

If i needed to be critical or suggest improvements it would be to provide a tea and coffee station in the room. I think this was the only element that was missing but other than that we had a lovely time and would return again.
