The breakfast is horrible, not eatable
Wi-fi is expensive
Fans from the courtyard are really noisy
Also there is no sound-isolation from the hallway

But the rooms are clean and the bathroom was fresh enough

Room Tip: Eat breakfast another place, your day will be ruined if you eat here

On a very positive note, the hotel is in an excellent location for sightseeing in the centre of Barcelona. The rooms are clean and a reasonable size and if you go directly to the site they offer deals including breakfast and wifi included in the room rate. On the down side, the hotel had many student group bookings and the reception area was frequently crowded and consequently when returning of an evening the hotel was quite noisy in the corridors close to our room. Breakfast was always really busy and you needed to queue for everything. Can't complain about the choice or quantity of food but very bland! The service at the reception wasn't bad but they need to sort out their computerized key system. Ours went wrong 3 times in 5 nights stay. Little improvements would have changed my review from a 3 to a least a 4. I would however stay there again.

This hotel does have a superb location - however for the price they should not nickel-and-dime you. Two Euros a day charge to use the room safe!! Two Euros for one hour of Wi-Fi!! This is ridiculous. That said, the staff were reasonably efficient and friendly and we found the room clean and the bed comfortable. We would have appreciated more fresh fruit for breakfast and weren't sure how long the alleged croissants had been stored to make them so stale. We were there for eight nights and really appreciated the fact that we could walk to nearly everywhere we wanted to see in the city.

Room Tip: Higher floors may experience lengthy waits for the elevators

We booked one nights stay at the Rialto Hotel for stay prior to a cruise. We had booked two rooms one double and one single. On arrival the reception staff were friendly and very efficient. There were no single rooms available so we were given two triple rooms. I have read varying reviews of this hotel but we found it very clean and welcoming. The rooms were very different room 100 had only a small frosted glass window which looked into a small area at the centre of the hotel. The second room overlooked the main street with balcony. Both were fine.
The hotel had a large number of children/students staying and they were very noisy but things settled down after 11pm. Having earlier enjoyed a walk along the nearby las ramblas we settled for the night. At 0030 hrs we were awakened by a delivery of linen into the store room next to our room, so noisy that the toiletries were knocked from the shelves/sink in our room crashing to the floor. Having spoken to the deliveryman and reception the nightwatchman said the management knew about this and he would report it. Shortly after 7am we were again awakened by the maids unpacking the same linen and stacking it in the corridor outside our room. The reception staff told me to speak to the manager. I later did, she shrugged her shoulder and said there was nothing she could do and told me to tell my travel agent!!
what started so well ended so bad with a rude manageress who didn't care. The Hotel and breakfast were great the location ideal, shame about the noise and managers attitude.

Room Tip: avoid room 100 at ALL costs, rooms overlooking the street are bets with much more natural light

We booked flight, hotel and transfers with Easyjet. Everything went easy peasy. Delighted with location of hotel. We had room 506 for 4 nights. This was on Floor 5. We could step onto the balcony and see the rooftop views and the Cathedral. The staff were outstanding, spoke very good english and solved our problems with phone calls to transfer agent and even charged up the iphone and told us where to find a connector which we had left at home. The room was very comfortable with extra pillows. We liked the buffet breakfast which was continental fare, fruit and spanish dishes like Paella, tender beef stew, spanishe chicken with peppers in wine. You won't be hungry till late afternoon! There is a large lounge to relax in on the ground floor, snack machines and the 2 lifts work well. When you check out your luggage can be left behind the locked reception if your flight is later. To the left of the hotel is the Ramblas, lots of fast food franchises. A Sports Bar to see footie. To the right is a square where there is a tourist office. They give you maps and info. Get the Museum pass here to beat the q's. The hotel is very near the Picasso Museum and Gaudi's Palau Guell. Both recommended. Overall we had a very relaxing stay and would revisit.

Room Tip: Upper floors such as 4 and 5 at the front looking down onto Calle Ferran.
