“location winner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Just stayed three nights at the Nouvel Hotel it was in a great location it was clean staff were vey helpful the downfall for us was that there was no tea coffee making machines in the rooms and no bar that you could get a glass of wine or beer before going to bed. This hotel was very reasonable priced and it was good value for money would use it again if i return to Barcelona.

Six of us stayed at the Nouvel Hotel and found the location excellent. 60 metres from Las Rambla on Santa Anna a very quiet pedestrian street therefore no traffic noise. Rooms were on the small side, and the beds were quite “firm” . Bathroom was excellent with a very powerful, invigorating shower. The A/C did not work in our room but it did in the other two rooms - this maybe an issue when it is hot! Our only small complaint was a lack of bar facilities and we had to go out to have a drink.
House keepers and reception staff were terrific and rooms were kept spotless – well done!. The best thing about this hotel is its locality. It is perfectly placed for the airport bus which terminates in in Catalunya Square - 2 mins walk from the hotel. Note: The trip advisor map shows the hotel in the wrong place!
The buffet breakfast (11 euros) was disappointing and lacked quality so we turned left out of hotel door and within 30 metres found a little café that served quality breakfast and their staff were superb.
All of us said we would stay again due to great location and easy access to everywhere.

I stayed at the Nouvel Hotel with my daughter.We found it very central for all attractions.The breakfasts were adequate with selections of fruit ,meats,cheese and breads,cakes and cereals.
The room was basic but clean with a bath and shower.
The best thing about this hotel is the locality.It,s perfectly placed to explore the city via bus and underground .

Minutes from Placa Catalunya, Las Ramblas and metro and yet very quiet.
Charming spotless hotel and rooms with A/Cand large bathrooms.
Extensive buffet breakfast available - cafe alternatives available seconds away in same street.
Excellent value for central location.
Note - wi-fi charges based on time from connection not duration - irritating when several brief connections are needed through the day - desk advised us to go over a block to Starbucks and get for "free".

Stayed here 3rd to 5th Oct 2012. Lovely little no frills hotel which is in a central location close to the Ramblas.Rooms small but spotless and housekeeping completed every day. Continental breakfast was ample and well presented and the staff were very pleasant.
Would recommend to anyone

Extra. Extra, Extra! - Extra for safe, extra for wifi, deposit for tv controls (which don't work), uncomfortable beds, un-notified building works........! Will definitely be looking for somewhere else when next visiting.

Aside from its fantastic location (50 meters from Catalunya Square and La Rambla avenue - can't get any better) the hotel is smallish, in the old European style with high ceilings, ornaments all over. Rooms are nice, not too small, with modern bathrooms, porches overlooking the back yard and lots of other windows of very near apartments.
Breakfast is European also (white bread, pastries, eggs, cold cereal) and nothing to write home about, but ediquite.
Staff friendly and helpful. We loved our stay there.
One helpful tip for those who aren't too fond of the Spanish tapas - on the other side of the street (Santa Anna) facing the hotel's entrance, there is a buffet style "dining room/restaurant" which helped us survive.
