“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

The Andante hotel is an ideal non fussy very functional, clean and modern hotel in the Las Ramblas area of Barca. We were really impressed by the security, comfort and the polite and helpful staff at this hotel and would suggest anyone who does not need frills and soft furnishings in order to enjoy a hotel stay would find it a great experience. There are lots of very nice places to take breakfast very close bye if you do not fancy spending 12 euros at the hotel. We did. Really impressed by our stay here.

Room Tip: The outlook was not a consideration for us in Barcelona if you want a good view go high.

We moved to this hotel from a truly awful place around the corner and what a delight, the Manager, Patricia was happy to take the time out to show us the room which was clean, modern and quiet, stunning rooftop views and great value for a hotel of this quality in a main city centre. We didn't eat here so can't comment on the food.

Very modern hotel just off the Ramblas. Nice clean modern room. No tea making facilities in room but machine in reception where for €1 hot drink could be obtained. Very reasonably priced hotel for position but did not have breakfast at €12 as there were nearby bakers with coffee and croissant for €2.50-€3. Would certainly stay again if we go back to Barcelona.

Situated on a couple of hundred meters of Ramblas, 3 metrostations in the southern Raval area; it is very well situated for a touristic visit.
The rooms and complete hotel are very new in a good looking somewhat severe modern style.
The breakfast is excellent. The personnel competent, very friendly and joyful.
In short: we loved it being here for 8 days.

Stayed week begining Monday 22 Oct 2012 for 4 nights. The room was spacious with a balcony, the bed was the biggest and most comfortable I have ever slept in, hotel was very secure with these swipe cards, didn't really have any problems with the lifts as previous reviews. The hotel was spotlessly clean, roof top very small but the view is to die for. Only one complaint tried to get a cup of tea from vending machine , only lemon tea available no tea making facility in room. I didn't do breakfast as a lot of cafes nearby cheaper. Hotel could be situated better but obviously would be more expensive. Staff very helpful.

Room Tip: I had room with balcony, it was very spacious.

I've really struggled with what to write for this review to make it fair and balanced. Overall, its nice - very modern as others have said, very clean and in a great location in terms of its proximity to Las Ramblas. It is a reasonable price compared with other hotels as well. We stayed there for a trip for my 40th birthday to Barcelona and it was fine, but just fine, not great, but satisfactory.

Unlike others on here that have complained about the card system to enter the hotel and the lifts, I didn't really have a problem with that - it's good security, the only issue really for me was that the lifts took far too long to come. Others have referred to the fact it's dark and dingy - although our room wasn't the corridors were terribly dark. It is modern and very new, but the finish isn't quite there. When we arrived we had twin beds pushed together and a slide wardrobe that wasn't working. My partner went down to ask if they could put us in a double bed, our booking was through booking.com and we were told that unless you specify a double, as they haven't got that many we would just have to leave it. He asked if one came available in the 4 nights if we could be moved...this didn't happen. The wardrobe was fixed within half an hour. However, we then had a problem with the shower head falling down and the rail not being properly fixed to the wall. When we reported it the next day we were told that it would have to wait until the next day because the maintenance guy wasn't in. To be fair however they did fix it the next day.

The rooftop pool is tiny...as is the 'gym'...which has no treadmill and is essentially a line of steppers with I think one weights machine. Neither were worth the bother of getting changed.

The staff are very friendly and helpful but the hotel itself lacks atmosphere and charm. There is no bar to mingle with others guests and there isn't even a mini bar, fridge or coffee making facilities in the rooms. So its as basic as you can get essentially. Little things like having an information pack in the room...I've stayed in apartments normally when in Europe and they give you heaps of information about the area, the apartment itself etc. We had nothing at all.

They could make so much more of this hotel with a little effort. Just a little note on the location - it is close to Las Ramblas but you have to cut through alleyways which to be honest I probably wouldn't have done alone. Also, if you go to the left outside the hotel you will end up in the dodgy area - we missed it at first but then came back a different way one night and hit what appeared to be 'hooker' street. So just be a little bit careful.

Would I stay there again? Probably not. It really depends what you want from it - as a base its fine, clean and modern, but if you want somewhere with a bit of atmosphere where you can chill out - it's not.

Refering to the room, If the guest ask for a room change, whenever possible, we will change it, because our main goal is that all our customers are satisfied and have a pleasant stay with us.
