Tryp Barcelona Apolo Hotel
Ranked #280 of 513 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed March 27, 2014

We visited the hotel in March 2014. The weather was pleasant and the hotel acted as a very good base for our sight seeing long weekend. The hotel is clean, friendly and provides all basics if you need somewhere that you won't need to be spending all too much time in. The only disappointment is that we booked a double room and as a couple we ended up with two twin beds which wouldn't push together. Other than that great! And the staff are amazing if you need some advice on a quirky bar or restaurant to go etc.

Stayed last weekend arrived late room upgraded,clean, spacious queen size bed,excellent breakfast buffet open tlll11am on weekends.
the hotel had a deal for electric bikes (15e a day) I would highly recommend this as a way to see Barcelona it was amazing and the bikes were easy to handle (after a few miles!)

Room Tip: It is on a busy street so if traffic noise bothers you ask for a room at the back or high up.

I only stayed for one night in March while on a short visit supporting Man City. The hotel was in a great location - a 5 minute walk (10 if you're more of a stroller) south to the harbour which has some lovely places to eat/have a drink. Here you can also hop on one of the City Tour Buses (my favourite way to see most European Cities).
La Rambla is again only a 5/10 minute walk heading east from the hotel so right in the centre.
The room was clean, large, had everything I required. I only stayed for one night but should it have been more I would have been very comfortable here.
Breakfast was also great - which I think is a very important aspect of a hotel!

Lovely hotel. Great central location, short walk to La Rambla. Staff were fantastic, all very friendly and helpful and spoke great English. Took their time to explain whereabouts we were in relation to all the popular tourist destinations. I lost my room key at one point and they couldn't have been nicer about it and really helped me out. Breakfast was brilliant and there was a huge variety on offer. I didn't go for an excellent rating because the room was slightly dirty and we could hear a lot going on in the corridors and room next door, but these were minor issues. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a city break!

Couldn't fault the friendly, helpful service. Nice central position close to Les Rambles and harbour. Immediately adjacent to the metro. Free wifi. Good breakfast with a wide selection of food available. Slightly noisy outside on 2 nights.

We recently had a wonderful short break to Barcelona and was delighted with our stay at the Tryp Apolo. The location to the major tourist sites is fantastic and due to the huge and varied breakfast provided, a snack for lunch was all that was required. Your reception staff were attentive and courteous and Ryan was particularly helpful in giving us invaluable advice during our short stay to make it a most memorable one. Thank you Ryan and thank you Tryp Apollo - We'll be back!
