“Perfect location!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Firstly - for any English people reading this...this is a hotel - not a hostel.

This hotel is located in the most perfect place - you honestly couldn't get a better location if you tried in my opinion. It is just off the main streets "Las Ramblas" - which is a wonderful part of Barcelona, a series of long avenues with rows of trees either side, lots of market stalls and ice cream stalls right down the centre.

The hotel was very clean, very comfortable and we found it to be quiet at night too. You even get to use their free wifi in your room! It really is a fantastic little hotel.

I will definitely be staying at OperaRamblas again upon my next return to Barcelona!

Wonderfully clean place with a great sitting room downstairs. Rooms are simple and clean. Great location, just off the Ramblas and right next to the opera house. The road it is on is not at all "sketchy" at night, this is coming from an 18 year old girl. Front desk was helpful and accommodating when we arrived at 10am after an overnight train to Barcelona and check-in wasn't until 1:30. They store your bags for you before check-in or after check-out and can answer any questions you may have. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the interior dont have a great view but corner rooms by the steps are quieter

We visited Barcelona and stayed in Operamblas for 3 days. Location of the hotel is perfect, with metro and restaurants within walking distance, at the same time not being directly on the main street is a big plus. Room size and cleanliness were good - within expectations . Most reviews mention thin walls, which is true - we brought ear plugs, however did not use them once. We heard some people walking in the hallways, however nothing that would be too annoying (even though I understand with noisy neighbours it could be worse). The reception was very helpful. Every morning we went to the central market, which was 3 mins away and just walked around, since the wares offered are varied and very interesting. Excellent value for money - hotels and hostels in the same price range were absolutely inferior to this one.

Paper thin walls whith nutters running around but a great location. This pretty much sums this place up. Went as a couple and got a twin room. The people next door were running around the corridors all night and freaked us out! its was quite awful, we could hear everything and anything! People were constantly banging walls too which was very annoying. Didnt really sleep here, might have got a few hours tops.

As for location it was very good in the middle of the ramblas and close to the metro. Overall i think this place is grand but we may have just got unlucky with the crazy people next door. I have had much better value for money!

Large double room with a great location in the middle of the Ramblas. Only complaint was the A/C didn't not seem to get very cold...room was stuffy. Great value and location. I would recommend this place to a friend.
