There was no Restraunt despite it being advertised on their website the week we left. Staff were friendly, but not having any food available on site other than breakfast was a pain. The swimming pool is a bit of a joke. No more than an oversized bath. No privacy. Terrace bar was nice as were all the bar staff we came across. Paying extra for breakfast is a liberty. I would not go back or recommend to friends and family.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 days over New Years and so glad we did. The hotel itself very modern and clean, staff always happy to help and very knowledgable of the area.

Great location as it's a 5 min walk to Catalunya and a further 5 to La Rambla, the tube is just down the road which is also very easy to use. Getting to/from the airport takes 35mins on a bus for 5,50 euros each, no need for a cab!

We didn't have breakfast at the hotel as we felt that 21 euros p/p was steep, and there were many places to eat nearby which were great. We did have a couple of drinks on the rooftop terrace which was a nice touch, although again expensive.

Our room overlooked the street where we could see the Christmas lights from the balcony. This was lovely.

I highly recommend this hotel for the perfect base in Barcelona.

Thank you to all at the Cram.

Recently a friend and I spent some days in Barcelona. We stayed at the Cram, a very modern hotel not far from Catalonia Ramblas. Our stay was most enjoyable. First and foremost was the hotel attendant, Sean, who was there whenever we needed anything. The rooms are ultra modern and since I am not really a techy person I found all the push buttons a bit daunting at first. But once settled in, I became used to which button did what. I had a privilege room which was more spacious and pleasing than their regular rooms. I had a lovely terrace that looked out on the city. During warmer weather I would have enjoyed it more. The breakfasts on the roof were wonderful. First, the view was so nice to enjoy in the morning. And the choices for breakfast were excellent. I especially vouch for the poached eggs, probably the best I have ever eaten anywhere in the world. One night we also ate in the restaurant Angle which was a gourmet's dream. Both the roof breakfasts and the elegant Angle serve gluten free items.

Over all, I would definitely stay there again. It was most enjoyable. Thank you, Cram, for your warm hospitality.

Room Tip: Choose a privilege room for extra comfort.

If you want to be into the flow of this magnificent city, Cram is the place to stay. You can walk to beautiful avenues and the Metro in 4 or 5 blocks. The rooms are small but clean. The staff is helpful and pleasant. Good deal for the price.

We stayed here for one week as part of our Christmas vacation. The hotel was a ten minute walk from the Universitat metro stop. If you catch the aero-bus from the airport its only 5.6 euro per person and drops you off at the Universitat stop. We stayed on the 4th floor in a room facing the street front and had no problems with noise as the balcony windows had good sound proofing. The room had a chic design with plenty of storage space for 2 people. The bed was extra comfy and we could also control the temperature of our room which made for a good night sleep. We chose not to have breakfast at the hotel as it was expensive and there are plenty of cafes and patisseries just a few minutes around the corner. I would suggest trying La Pastisseria for breakfast which does excellent cakes and pastries.

We would stay here again if visiting Barcelona because it had a good, quiet location only 10 min walk from the main plaza and shopping area.

I really loved this hotel!! Mostly I appreciated the design of the rooms and the terrace at the 7th floor overviewing the city.
My room was at the 5th floor and had a nice balcony on the angle so had view on both the streets (Aribau and Aragò). I loved the curve lines of the room, and smooth lights that could be turned on and off in different part of the room/bathroom. Cleaning was ok, I only stayed one night so cannot say anything on the cleaning of the room after guest arrival.
Other PLUS is the terrace where breakfast is served. It's amazing as you can see most part of the city and relax. Breakfast is definetely good, with variety and good food!
Surely suggested!!

The hotel no longer let's you contol the air/heat in the room. They also no longer let you open windows or doors to the patio. The bathroom also doesn't have a real door so the room was VERY humid and stuffy to the point where the wallpaper was peeling off in the room. The hotel also made us prepay so we ended up stuck there for half of our trip and kind of miserable from not being able to sleep. They also were doing construction in the next room starting at 8am. The staff refused to do anything to help and said they were sold out and couldn't change our room. However the hotel seemed kind of deserted. I only saw a handful of other guest while we were there. The rooftop bar area had been shut down completely and the bar by the lobby was always empty. I did like the location but there are lots of other hotels around that are cheaper with more amenities and much more comfortable. We stayed at hotel jazz for the other half of our trip and it was so much better.

It later reopens from 12.00 Am until 12.00 Pm, serving drinks, appetizers, tapas and 'informal cuisine' uninterruptedly throughout the day.
