“Average hotel for not so average prices”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

This is an okay hotel which is no way a 4 star hotel which leads me to question how they got this rating. The front desk staff were not very helpful and when we checked in, the guy was talking to us as if reading off a script, no personal touch at all. There were some porters/ staff standing near the front door, but not really offering any help to customers. The prices for their restaurant are unjustified given the quality of the food, i.e. 11 Euros breakfast each for customers, otherwise, 20 Euros I think. If you walk along this road, there are many cafes, which offer food for a fraction of the price. Also, as standard in even most average hotels, there was no kettle/ tea/coffee facility in the rooms which I found very surprising. The rooms need modernising and updating. The only reason anyone would stay at this hotel is the location being central. The staff need to be trained in good customer service.

Room Tip: Avoid room facing the main as there's lots of noise.

We have just spent three nights in this hotel which I would certainly recommend to your readers as in an ideal location for accessing the La,Rambla (a nice tourist street leading to the port in one direction and the square at Cataluna in the other. The tube station is literally just 50 metres form the hotel entrance which was extremely useful and there are a number of theatres in the immediate vicinity. The hotel itself is kept very clean, warm and the staff are very accommodating. We did not eat here as there are lost of little taverns and Bodega's quite close by serving a wide variety of meals and Tapas. We will certainly us this as a base when we return just handy for accessing the city.

Location- Sitting above the Paral-lel metro station which means convenience and east access to the Aerobus station to the Airport. Approx. 7min stroll to the Las Ramblas shopping area. Hotel surroundings have several dining options & most open only after 10am, including a subway outlet a block away. The only downside was the disco below the hotel that is noisy at middle of night.

Room- Front desk crew was helpful in assisting and was efficient. Room came with stable complimentartywifi but room was stuffy as the air con was switched off. Window could not open fully to allow natural breeze in. General room condition was ok for a 4 star Melia-operated property.

Overall value for money and ...will definitely stay here again if not for the noisy disco. For now, perhaps will look for others

We spent 2 nights at the Tryp Barcelona Apolo. The people at the reception were very friendly and helpful, the room was big, comfortable and already available at 11 am. The hotel is in walking distance to the sea, to Las Ramblas, and to the metro with 2 lines. Breakfast was good with lots of choices. Minor disadvantage: it was a little bit noisy at night. There might be a disco close by.

This hotel was perfectly situated for a first time visitor to Barcelona. It was easy to access all areas of the city. Hotel, clean, room very good. Breakfast was extremely good value. The cafe attached to he hotel had a good menu and gave good value for money.

The hotel is 50m away from metro and bus stops from where you can explore easily the whole city. Rambla and Gothic quarter are in walking distance. I like this hotel as they offer good services at reasonable prices. Large rooms, totally clean. They even included Wi-Fi connections which was not the case in the past. Vast selection of the dishes at the breakfast, just no cereal bread. Will definetely stay there in the future.
