“Great location”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Lleo. It was a large hotel by Europe's standards, with 2 lifts, 24/7 reception, roof-top pool, and several floors of rooms. Our room was spacious with a patio. The AC worked great, but the room remained so humid that the bed sheets and mattress felt damp. There was literally no insulation in the walls, so every door slam, conversation, and tv was heard. There was a large breakfast buffet that remained open until noon, however; the selection and quality of the food provided was average at best. The front desk staff were gruff, apathetic, and avoidant. The best aspect of the hotel was its location, close enough to Plaza de Catalunya, but far enough from the busy, sketchy La Ramblas. This was an average hotel, not luxurious by any means, but met our needs for 3 nights in September.

We stayed 3 nights and found the hotel to be in an excellent location with a generous sized room, including a small sitting room which lead out to a small terrace. There was a nice bathroom and a shower with good pressure. Our room was on the 1st floor to the rear of the hotel and was very quiet. The staff were all friendly and helpful.
We did not have any meals at the hotel but the menu was similar in both the food offered and price compared to the restaurants around the hotel.
The Metro is a 5 minute walk from the hotel and a small Supermarkat (Supermarket) is a 5 minute walk if you turned left from the hotel and went to the end of the street, it was on the right across the street. A large supermarket was a 10 minute walk if you turned right from the hotel and walked down the street and turned right at McDonalds and down the main Plaza, it is approximately 300 metres on the right.
The central square where the Hop on Hop off buses left from was also very close, only 10 minutes walk. If you have a few days in Barcelona I would recommend a 2 day pass as we found the buses move reasonably quickly around the city and take you to all the main attractions. (Euro 32)
If you thinking of visiting the Familiar Grand Gardaí, book online before you go as the queues were VERY long to get in.
Overall all we thought the Hotel Lleo was an excellent choice for our stay in Barcelona.

I spent a long weekend here in August 2013. The location is absolutely ideal, just 2 minute walk from the Place de Catalunya. Room was a decent size, very clean (cleaners came in every day as well). Air conditioning helps keep the room cool. Staff were friendly and helpful when needed. Rooftop pool available although we didn't actually use it as so much to do in Barcelona.

Would definitely stay here again if returning to Barcelona.

great location, friendly and helpful staff, rooms clean and spacious. Facilities good. Good value for money. We recommend it to travellers. No hidden costs. Left my phone in room and they were great. Trip adivsor: surely the previous text suffices - why on earth do you demand 200 characters minimum

Room Tip: Any of there rooms would be value

My parents paid for us to stay for a mini honeymoon after our recent wedding.. Hotel is in a great location, walking distance to lots.
Reception staff friendly and helpful, our room was small and fairly dated, there was a window but no view (looked out onto other rooms) it felt like a cave as we only saw sunlight if we went out of the hotel.. Bathroom was small and narrow an had to sit on the toilet side ways as it was impossible to sit any other way due to the size. We did look into other rooms as there were being cleaned in the mornings an defo think we had one of the not so nice rooms.
Breakfast was ok, if you just had toast found the Hot food to be not so Hot..
Great hotel if used for a base...
