We found this hotel very accommadating, very helpful, always willing to oblige. Breakfast was one of the best I have ever had and excellent value for money.

Would highly recommend Tryp Apolo to anyone.

My Wife and I stayed for three nights in early May, we booked through Last Minute. We must say we were a little disappointed with the standard of hotel.
We booked because of the location close to the Ramblas and the price was good. We were offered an upgrade for extra euros and we accepted. For the extra money we had a decent size room and on the whole it was worth it. But they also promised to upgrade the bar for free regularly but we had to hound them to do this. Plenty of tea and coffee in the room, however we contacted reception for chocolate drink sachets in the room, this was not possible for the Tryp Apolo.
Moreover, even though we stayed 5 floors up, the noise from people shouting, generally chatting loudly or bickering all through the night, was silly. There were three homeless people living in the bank doorway opposite, that were getting a quieter nights kip.
What we thought could be improved were, numerous cracked tiles in the bathroom and the fittings had lost their finishing plate. We had a burn mark on our bedspread, but overall the room was clean and reasonable value. We had only two towels each day, which is not enough, but to be fair to the hotel, we did not ask for more,........ but as Drinking chocolate was a problem we didn't want to ask the impossible.
The breakfast; if the management read this they could easily improve the experience several fold. First throw out that old toaster, as it has seen better days and squeaks loudly like someone running their fingernails down a blackboard and is not welcome after a noisy night at the Tryp. Secondly, it's a pity that such a really great spread and effort is half ruined by tepid drinks and a cooked breakfast that’s chilly. Thirdly, fix the loose paving slabs (before someone breaks their neck) just as you walk through to the rather pleasant patio area. This it must be said is the best place to have your breakfast.

We were very pleased with our stay at the TRYP Apolo. We found a good deal on LastMinute.com and stayed 4 nights. It's 5 minutes from the Ramblas and right by a Metro station. Free WiFi was useful and desk staff were helpful although very busy!

We didn't use the dining room as we like a light breakfast in a pavement cafe. Our room was comfortable and well equipped.

We liked Barcelona so much, we'll be back in the Autumn and will stay at the TRYP Apolo if they are doing a good deal.

Arrived to TRYP, and tried to check in. But due some mishap with an airline the hotel was fully booked, and we were forwarded to an alternative 5 star hotel.

But the location of the 5 star hotel was not as good as the TRYP, further up into town, which did not have as good shopping possibilites and also more taxi expenses NOT covered by TRYP them selves. (Even though the taxi to the 5 star hotel was).

According to TRYP the extra distance from 5 star to TRYP would be 5 minutes of taxi. This was not true either. It was more like 10 minutes extra.

Room Tip: Make sure you actually get a room at TRYP and is not forwarded to another hotel in another part of t...

Enjoyed a 4 night stay post cruise. Excellent service, great breakfast every morning and very conveniently located, just a short walk to the Rambala. The beds were somewhat hard compared to North American standards. The bathroom was clean and there was lots of hot water for showers.
