“Changed my thoughts on Barcelona for the better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

A group of 19 girls stayed at the Andante hotel for a hen party. For the record I have been to Barcelona before and hated it as the hotel was rubbish and the Catalan people were rude. However I found at the Andante they were polite and helpful and so welcoming. Your not far from the airport and you are really central. We partied at the once bar and went to Opium club and got a cab for about €15 to the beach. Although Barcelona is expensive they have a 7 second rule for spirits - they pour whilst counting to 7!!! The hotel was really clean and and the food was fantastic alright expensive breakfast was €12 per day! The view from the hotel pool was absolutely nothing short of breath taking however the pool itself is disappointingly small with a lack or space for many guests or chairs. Value for ,only and amazing view as well as contemporary and clean this hotel comes highly recommended oh and the location is spot on....

Dear client,

We are glad to hear you enjoyed time with us. Also, we’d like to thank you for taking a few minutes to write your impression of our hotel and share your experience with other fellow travelers.

We appreciate your comments about the location, service and staff in general. In reference to the breackfast we try to offer a varied breakfast with top-quality products at a cheap price.

We are glad that you enjoy our roof terrace. We regret if the swimming-pool did not fulfill your expectations due to it is a free service we offer our clients to make their stay more comfortable, that usually three stars hotels do not offer.

Thank you for recommending us. We would love to welcome you in the future. Please, don't hesitate to contact us for the next time you visit the city.

Best regards,
Hotel Andante, Barcelona

European hotels in this price range are often so small you have no place to sit your luggage. Andante is not like this at all.

You are welcomed by friendly and assertive staff as you enter a modern Spanish designed foyer.

The rooms have the essentials and are also modern in decor and design. Perfect for a couple or single person.

The halls linking the rooms are very cool with mood lighting and a random mix of pop ballads are pumped out of the internal sound system as you walk to your room.

My only issue was the poor shower pressure and the wifi in the room. Thankfully both were manageable but were annoying.

Overall I would stay here again for sure.

Immaculate service and cleanliness for a city hotel. Nothing ever seemed too much trouble for their team. Even provided us with a ideal of where to visit in our first trip to Barcelona. The view from our room was over the whole city.

Nice touch of champagne in our room for us to toast. A lovely gift.

Not a complicated hotel. Right on the mark of what should happen.

Totally recomendable hotel in great location, between Metro station Drassanes and Parralel. (when coming by train, get off Parralel, it's closer to the Hotel) Within walking distance to Gothic quarter, Boqueria Market, Las Ramblas, Port.
Room was very clean, comfortable bed and appropriate facilities, though I miss tissues and shower cap.
Beautiful view from roof top swimming pool, didn't swim though as it was stil to cold.
Helpful staff, explained how to get to various location and which metro to use

Room Tip: If you are here for excursions, a standard double is sufficient, as Barcelona offers so many cultura...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the hotel from April 5th to April 11th. It is located near the Palau de Güell and thus a five minute walk away from Port Vell as well as Las Ramblas. The hotel itself is modern and fairly new. The rooms are both fine (the only thing that was missing is a fridge - in case you buy some drinks in the super market and want to keep them cold) and very clean (I had made very different experiences in other southern European cities). What has to be said is that the staff is extraordinary nice and helpful (especially the concierges). Overall, you get more than might be expected from a three star hotel. I'd definitely come back the next time I visit Barcelona.

The hotel location was excellent. Close to two metro stations, reached a very different attractions. Ramblas was a short walk away.

The service was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were modern and clean and the rooms did not belong to the traffic noise, as well as Wi-Fi access was good and fast. The roof terrace was spectacular scenery over the city. Breakfast was good value for money.

We are happy to recommend this hotel to others, we are very pleased that we chose this hotel a number of available options. When we come back from Finland to Barcelona, ​​we know what hotel we choose!

Have just come back from a 2 night stay at the Andante in Barcelona, we arrived and straight away we loved it the outside and reception is so modern and the staff were so friendly and helpful and speak really good English. We were provided with maps and things were highlighted which were great tourist attractions which was really helpful as we had never visited barcelona before. The rooms were great, modern with televisions and in some hotels where you couldn't wait to get out of the hotel we were happy spending some times in there after a long afternoon of walking around. The view of Barcelona from the top floor where the swimming pool is, is priceless, absolutely incredible. I loved Barcelona and will definitely be visiting again and the Andante is where I will be staying!
