“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed December 19, 2009

We found a bargain price at www.hrs.de, for 52 euro per night. The location is excellent, close to Plaza España, and only some mins walk from that Metro station, that will take you to "Catalunya", the Metro station close to La Rambla in only six minutes. Also the location of this hotel to see the spectacular fountains down from Museo Nacional de Arte de Catalunya (MNAC), and to access the MNAC itself.
We got a big double room which was clean and comfortable. We didnt take the breakfast at the hotel, but in a cafe close by, but I ams ure the breakfast would be good. What makes this hotel something that stands out of the crowd is the excellent, personal and helpful service. We were helped by Pedro at the desk, and we witnessed also how he helped a lot of other people. So satisfied we were with this hotel, that we have decided to book twenty rooms for the guest of our wedding, that will take part in May 2010.
If you want to spend your money on other things than over prized hotel rooms, I guess it will be hard to find any better option in Bacelona than the Azul.

I stayed here in May 2008. I wouldn't normally stay in a hotel of this quality but I left it very late to book so it was the cheapest get. I paid €100 per night for a very large suite, which was very comfortable and quite good value, but probably more luxury than I needed. The location is only ok for two reasons: one is it's not in the very centre of the city, so you end up having to travel by metro or taxi more than if you were in the centre; two the street the hotel is on is very busy and quite noisy (I got woken up by traffic and had to wear earplugs but I am quite a light sleeper). There is a really nice cafe nearby at Placa Espanya with a very friendly Argentine waitress and good coffee (hard to find in Spain!).

The room itself was beautiful and very modern comfortable. The staff were excellent, helpful and friendly.

One thing to watch out for are the badly designed windows - I nearly fell out trying to open mine (seriously!). There's a notice beside the window recommending not to open it, so I guess I'm not the first guest who had trouble with it. Not so nice when you're on the 6th floor. :-)

Certainly nothing wrong with this hotel - apart from the location. But probably a bit fancier than my needs, so I probably wouldn't stay here again.

We booked a triple room, expecting two beds and a cot in a single room. We were pleasantly surprised to find a 2 room suite with a full kitchenette, dining area, and a large bathroom. The rooms were very clean and nicely furnished. Staff was friendly, helpful, and multilingual. The location is great - less than a 5 minute walk to a centrally located metro station. Couldn't have asked for a better hotel in Barcelona!

a great hotel, only complaint i'd have is that some of the front rooms are subject to street noise, but it was only ever a minor irritation.

staff were excellent, very friendly and accomodating.

their apartment rooms were very comfortable, and extremely reasonable for what you get.

great location too, handy for the metro and right beside montjuic, which is an absolute must-see. also the surrounding neighbourhoods are quiet and pleasant, very traditional.

two thumbs up!

p.s this also deserves a mention, out of 4 hotels i stayed in in barcelona, this hotel was the only one who's internet connection was both free (in other places the standard seems to be 22euro per 24h), and worked properly.

  • Liked — staff
