ILUNION Almirante
Ranked #462 of 513 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

This was advertised as a 4 star hotel when I booked it through last minute.com, I have to be honest and not agree with this rating as I've had much better experiences of other hotels which hold a lower star.
However what this place does offer is a central point for most attractions in Barcelona! Roughly 2 minutes from the cathedral and a short walk to the docks and other attractions such as the Ramblas.
The hotel was great for us because we weren't looking to spend our time in the hotel, we just needed somewhere comfortable, safe and in a decent location so we could access the best that Barcelona has to offer!

Terrible bathroom: not very clean, broken hair dryer that was not fixed regardless of our complaint, freezing stone floors, bath plug that doesn't fit drain hole and bath glass curtain with the space space between it's and bath's edges, so however careful you take shower , you'll get floor covered with water then.

Front Desk agents are very nice, some of them hardly speak English, but trying to do their best to help you.

Great location: Many bars and restaurants around, 5 minutes from famous 4 Gats, just 7 minutes from Catalynia square 2 minutes from City Tour Bus stop.
Probably the cheapest 4star hotel in this area. If you don't care that much about bathroom, I'd recommend to go there.

Great location. Beach, night life bars all within walking distance. No buses or taxis required. The streets are nice and level and are easy to walk in. The city is great for a disabled person. The buses are all suitable for wheelchair travel The city is great for a family holiday. There is water park twenty minutes in train from the centre.of the city. it ends costing about a hundred euro for three persons for the day minus food. There are great shops to view and buy. food is less expensive than Europe generally and drink is relatively cheap/
Great location for a family holiday. The breakfast at 11 euro is not worth it . Better value close by
The hotel is air conditioned and great to retire too.. No problem in recommending the hotel At 1500 euro for four adult persons for a week without breakfast is worth it

Room Tip: No room too bad. The noise level did not affect us .We were at the front near the road but i did not...

This hotel has a very good location, short walk to everything. (Barceloneta 10 mins, shopping street 2 mins) Rooms are clean, bathtub in the bathroom.

People in reception is always nice and friendly.

Would recommend to others who are planning to stay in Barcelona.

After reading several reviews about how awful the hotel was and how things were stolen, I was a little concerned but when we got there, everything was fine & perfect!
We arrived at the airport and got the aerobus(30mins) to placa de cataluyna then walked to the hotel within 5 mins.
Location: across the road from Barcelona Cathedral, shortcuts to La rambla within 5 mins, approximately 20 mins away from the beach & its around the corner from santa caterina market. several shops, supermarkets & restaurants/cafes near the hotel. several churches and museums close to the hotel too! We didn't even use the metro whilst we were in Barcelona, everything was easily accessible due to the location of the hotel! We could walk home after a night out as it was so close to everything!
Service: Check in was quick and easy. The room was clean & tidy. Towels and bathroom products were provided.There was free wifi & free bottles of water provided within the room. No problems with the room or hotel at all. we left everything in the room and the cleaners came to clean, nothing was stolen, fresh towels& other products were provided. After a night out, we got back around 5 and couldn't find anywhere that was open for food so we asked the receptionist & he called next door(a bar/restaurant) and they opened for us! Other hotels would probably suggest room service! Checking out was quick and easy too, paid the city tax & left.
The hotel was clean, fairly modern & lighting was decent. There were lifts and stairs too. The room wasnt the brightest room but lighting was enough to brighten up the room a little. We had a window facing the main street& this allowed a lot of natural lighting to come in, although it was a main road, the windows managed to block out a lot of noise.

I would definitely recommend this hotel!

This hotel is rated at a four star on most sites; however, is a three star at the best. I based this off of "American" star rating and what we are use to when we see a hotel that is labeled four stars. The best thing this hotel has going for it is its location, which is very close to Las Ramblas, the beach, and the Gothic area. The reason we chose this hotel was because it looked decent, clean, and was reasonably priced compared to some of the other hotels within the same area. The rooms were clean (fairly spacious), full bathroom with great water pressure, and air conditioning. The staff was friendly and it does have elevators to the floors. It also offers breakfast which is decent but a little pricey for what they offer. They also have TV for you CNN/BBC news addicts. If you are looking for a hotel in Barcelona close to the center and a decent price range, this is not a bad hotel and you would be content.

Room Tip: If you don't smoke, make sure they put you on a non-smoking floor. The ventilation system is con...

I recently stayed in the Confortel Almirante, This is not a 4 star hotel!
It was easy to find and in a good location within a few minutes walk from La Rambla and near enough to the port.
However, the hotel is not 4* as promised on the website, it is quite dated, the room was extremely basic but had all the basics. It was clean enough too. Also a balcony overlooks the street below.
The wifi wasn't great and kept loosing connection.
The staff where friendly and helpful. I didnt use the restaurant at all, there are plenty within a 5 minute walk from the hotel.
