“Loved this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

I have just returned from a 3 night stay in a quadruple room and we had a great stay. The location is great, just a few mins walk from Placa Catalunya. It felt secure, having to enter a main door, and then a further locked door on the first floor (up the lift). Our room was literally just off reception so could be noisy, but it was very clean and spacious. The only problem was 4 girls trying to get ready in one bathroom, with no mirrors in the main room itself! I would definitely stay here again.

perfect location a few meters from Plaza Catalunia and Rablas.
very clean room, very friendly staff, very tiny single room, free internet, no breakfast
recommended if found at a good price
no elevator for 2nd floor

Room Tip: try to find a spacious room, because the single is tiny

I admit it was dubious about booking this one star hotel but I'm so glad we did! Fantastic location just off La Ramblas and very close to two metro stations. Room was basic but comfortable and we had our own little balcony that was great for people watching. It was kept spotlessly clean and they changed all the sheets and towels everyday. It can be slightly noisy at night but it didnt stop us sleeping at all and you have to walk up about 15 steps before the elevator. Probably best for couples and groups of friends rather than families. All in all, absolute bargain compared to the other hotels in the area and great value for money.

We stayed at the hotel Pelayo for three nights. Although the room and bathroom were small, they were both spotlessly clean, and the beds very comfortable. Towels were changed every day, and the reception staff were pleasant and helpful. We would stay there again. The location is excellent, very close to two metro stations and the top of La Rambla. Another bonus - we found a good, cheap restaurant nearby!

I'd pre-booked with a group of ten people and when we arrived there'd been a big mix up with rooms and numbers. Only one of the group could speak any kind of Spanish, so we muddled through. The rooms were really varied in terms of quality and ambience, I shared a quadruple towards the back of the hotel which was very clean, comfortable albeit a tiny bath! Ideally located for the La Rambla and all the other touristy stuff. Maybe 3 is a bit harsh, 3.5 more likely a fairer rating.

I visited Barcelona November 2012 and decided to stay at Hotel Pelayo, due to price and location. We knew we wont be in the hotel much so we went for this hotel even tho it is rated at 1 star.

Now don't be fooled by this, this hotel can easily be a 2 star +. it was very clean, bed sheets changed regularly and also very friendly staff. for the price your paying i don't think you will get a better service and also end up in a hot spot like this.

La Rambla is 2 minutes away, metro station is also 2 mins away. the beach itself is around 20 mins away (by foot), then again its a very nice nice walk through La Rambla to the beach.

I cant remember exactly but Nou Camp is around 9 stops away via the Metro (roughly 20 mins).

I will be staying here again on my next visit to Barcelona!
