“Excellent hotel !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stayed here for a short break in October 2012. The staff on arrival were extremely courteous and helpful. The hotel is clean and has a lovely warm feeling to it. The location is excellent for all the main streets of Barcelona and the bars at nighttime. If I could have booked there and then for the same time next year I would have done !! Will definitely be retuning in 2013.

We stayed at the Grupotel Gravina Hotel for several days in October 2012. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a room for three persons, (our 18 year old Nephew accompanied my wife and I.) This was one of the few places I could find would find a room for three at a reasonable price. The location was excellent. We took the AeroBus from the airport to the Universtat stop and it was only a three block walk to the hotel. We were greeted with a class of Cava or water. After we checked in we walked to La Rambla, which was only about 4 blocks away.

The included breakfast was more than we expected. Several hot dishes (eggs, bacon, potatoes) were available. While there was a buffet, the wait staff brought a pot of hot coffee to your table.
The rooms were clean and the maid service good. We were always greeted when we entered or left the hotel.

We were there on my birthday, and when we returned to the room that evening there was a bottle of Cava and a plate of sweets in our room along with a birthday card from the hotel.
Our only complaint was something that is common to hotels in Europe. When you left the room the air condition went off, and when we returned in the evening it could take a couple of hours for the air conditioner to cool down the room enough to sleep.

I would definitely recommend this hotel.

From when we arrived until we left, the staff were very friendly and efficient. They had good knowledge of the City. The hotel was very clean and good service including breakfast facilities. Would use the Hotel again and recommend it.

We stayed at Grupotel Gravina in Barcelone for 4 days in october 2012 and had an excellent experience. We were first met by some very friendly persons in the reception and we even got a glass of champagne (Cava?) when we checked in. The hotel has a very good location nearby plaza de Catalonia and La Ramblas. We had a nice room (upgraded to superior) even if the bedroom was quite small. But the best part of this hotel was the very friendly staff, from the persons who met us in the reception to the cleaning-personell. When we are going back to Barcelona we would probably use the same hotel again.

Room Tip: I would recommend to upgrade to superior or junior suite if you get a good price. This can be done a...

We arrived again having read TA reviews, I expected to be allocated one of the small rooms as reported by earlier reviewers, and was, the room was well done out and clean but had hardly any room around the bed and a 2 foot square window as a view, I went back to reception and got a standard room after the receptionist said they were full, by the way you can book a small room check this when you book! Our new standard room was good, clean, no view to speak of and no tea/coffee facilities, who does get the rooms with the best views????? not me! On to the hotel proper......its in a great location, 300 m from the top of Rambla/Catalunya square, this is where the blue aero bus from the airport drops you off for 5.75 Euro, don't get a taxi from the airport the bus rank is right next to the taxis, look for the blue bus A2.
The hotel is spotless the breakfast is well organised and a great choice of everything including doughnuts, fruit, cereal, hot and cold buffet, tea/coffee toast. There is a small bar area, internet area and the staff are friendly and helpful with good English. As said close to Rambla where the main drag is to the Marina, the Hard Rock is in the Catalunya square, there are numerous cafes/bars all over, a few with the obligatory footy on mainly Euro Irish Bars. Overall a good choice of small side street hotel better than expected.

Room Tip: Check you dont book a small room, and recce it first leave your baggage in reception.

Stayed here for 4days earlier in October ,hotel is very central. We used the aero bus from the airport which is a very good service to Cataluyna sq which is only a few minutes walk to the hotel.On arrival we were given a glass of cava very nice the reception staff were very efficient and friendly very good English spoken.Having read previous reviews we booked a superior room and stayed in room 325 gravina II it was a bit of a trek to the room 2 lifts and stairs so might not be suitable for the less mobile The room was spacious with a small balcony over looking the Main Street.king size bed, mini bar, safe and nice ensuite with hair dryer.Breakfast was very good with lots of choice .Having a birthday whilst there I received a bottle of cava and cake left in the room nice touch. For a 3 star hotel ,close to centre, price good I would recommend this hotel and would stay again.

Room Tip: Book a superior room.
