Can't fault the Cram-nothing crammed about it. Very cool interior, fantastic rain shower, luxurious bed, great views over breakfast! Michelin star restaurant worth a visit even if you are not a guest. Had a very enjoyable stay!

I took my boyfriend to Barcelona for his 21st birthday and we stayed at the Cram we both loved it here so much, the hotel was really nice and modern, smelt lovely ( in the hotel) the streets could do with an air freshener. I told them on my booking that it would be my boyfriends birthday and it was a surprise could they leave some flowers or wine and they did even better, upgraded us to a superior suit free of charge, put rose petals all over the bed, candles with rose petals around them and a bottle of champaign in ice. The staff were really helpful, the bed was so comfortable, I also requested a room with a balcony and they made sure it happened.
The TV was a smart tv which we took our hardrive and plugged it in so we could watch all our own dvds I would highly recommend this. The shower was really nice i give the hotel no faults. Its in a brilliant location worth the extra bit of money for the hotel as its in walking distance of lots of things, loads of lovely restaurants in walking distance. Definitely go and visit the zoo and la rambla! We loved Barcelona and this hotel we would defo stay here again when we go back!
We did not eat at the hotel as it was far too expensive for us but there are so many restaurants to experience its worth trying them out.

We really liked this hotel. It is only 3 stops from the north bus station where you arrive/depart for Girona (flights to/from Italy). It is centrally located as well. The staff was very freindly and the room was very clean and well-equiped. The only negative part was that you cannot control the temperature from the room. You have to ask the receptionists to raise or lower the heat. The breakfast was too expensive so we enjoyed the nice cafè located within blocks of the hotel.

Room Tip: some rooms are quite small so remember to ask for a larger one in the same quality level.

We stayed one night at Cram Hotel in Barcelona, after what was a very tiring trip. It was very relaxing overall, stayed in the room pretty much half of the day it was very modern and comfortable, also the night sleep was great. Liked the rain shower very much. Location is fine, not the best but not the worse. I didn't have time to really browse through the hotels, because this was a last minute booking. But for what I could find, I was not disappointed with what I experienced.

Well, for me the most important things for a hotel tend to be location and cleanliness of the rooms - and both were excellent for my expectations. The staff was also very nice, giving recommendations and helpful directions. I would only say that I think the hotel is "under staffed" - like an additional front desk person and more "at your service" type staff. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and will definitely stay again on my next trip.

First off all the safe had to be changed didn't work. Then the reception told us that the heating couldn't be controlled from our room but only from the reception. Once it was cold in the room and after reclamation it became too warm in the room. The hotel take 22 euro per person for the breakfast. This is absolutely not recommendable. You get a lower than basic breakfast. If any of you know a good breakfast in a German hotel for only 10 euro you feel cheated on when you book a room at Cram with breakfast. Don't do that but go to one of with lovely cafe bars at carrer Arago you'll enjoy it.
The prices for this hotel is not worth it.

Dear Sir,

First of all thank you for chosen Hotel Cram during your stay in Barcelona.

It is a shame that code was blocked in the safe of your room, our staff had efficiently changed it in order to unlocked it and make you loss time, as it takes shorter time to replace for a new one rather than try to unlock the code in the room.

Regarding the heating, I am so sorry that you have had the trouble. All rooms can control the temperature from the room, but this week we are working to set a new system in order to improve energy efficiency, this is why during this days it is controlled by reception. As you have experienced during your stay in Cram we do have a light scene domotics system, with 3 different light scenes. Now we are doing the same with air-conditioning and heating, setting different temperature scenes. Our aim is to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

I hope I can personally welcome you back to Hotel Cram and show you all our improvements.

I remain at your disposal

Yours sincerely

Eva de Aurora
