We arrived from the Port of Barcelona after our 12 days cruise. The taxi cost us only 10 Euros. When we arrived the staff was warm and friendly, even when it was not yet check in time, our room was ready 5 minutes after check in. Hoorah!! Our room was a good size, had a modern, clean and fresh feel when you walked into the room. We had three beds that were comfortable. The bathroom was modern and super clean. You can hear the people talking on the room next to us but we were exhausted at night so it really didn't matter.

The pool on the roof was small but with a beautiful view. There are so many things to do and enjoy in Barcelona that there is not really time for the pool anyway and even when it was 90 degrees the temperature the water was cold. But that is what Europeans are used to and we didn't go to Barcelona to be on the pooll! PLUS the view is really to die for. Regardless if you are going to use the pool or not just to take a picture up there, you must go there. Its amazing.

We left the luggage and went walking to Las Ramblas that is only two blocks away and we walked up and down the strip visiting the Market (El Mercado), exciting place full of people, food, spices, salami and Jamones....very nice walk! Kept going until the end of it and then back. Ate at LA PATAGONIA affordable and exquisite Paella and Sangria. After that we went back to the hotel for a quick change and then back out to Las Ramblas again, then to La Barcelonetta for some Gellatto, then again Tapas y Sangria!

Walked again back to the hotel. By the way, every door is accessible with the room key and I loved that. This made us feel so secure! If you are not a guest of the hotel there is no way you can roam inside.

The front desk was always extremely professional and well trained, very welcoming. We speak Spanish perfectly so we didn't try their English but when is Spain do like the Spanish and at least you should try to communicate with them in their language.

I loved everything about this hotel and I recommend it 100%. I will definitely go back to Barcelona and this will be the place where we will stay!!

Firstly, I'd like to thank the staff of the hotel for making our stay so comfortable, it was much appreciated. As one of our stops on our honeymoon, we didn't know what to expect when we entered the hotel as it is located in a very urban area. We entered our room and not only was it cosy but clean; one night the staff left us a bottle of champagne congratulating us on our nuptials! The location itself is quite central, however a scenic walk to La Rambla is the closest with the coast line to your right or inner Barça to your left once your get there.

Loved this hotel. Staff uber helpful and welcoming. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Best of all they could accomodate our family of 2 adults and 3 kids with a 2 bedroom family room. Location as really central, just 3 minutes walk from Las ramblas. The only slight draw back was that road between the hotel and Las ramblas was a little uncomfortable for my kids in the evenings. Will definetly be staying here again when we next return to Barcelona.

We arrived a few days late to check in, due to having to postpone our holiday. We had phoned ahead to warn them this would be the case, but I think there had been a bit of a language barrier as it had been presumed we had cancelled. However, the Andante staff truly showed excellent service in going out of their way to make sure we were accommodated and were very apologetic, we ended up getting a room probably better than we would have had in the first place. So my advice would be, if making changes just make sure you are clear!

The room itself was fab, spacious, light and clean despite having to be prepared for us quickly, the shower was powerful and the beds large enough to accommodate the whole of my 6'8" boyfriend, and incredibly sumptuous and comfortable!

As for accusations that the pool is small and with little space; of course it's smaller than a usual pool, it's a ROOFTOP POOL! The views are amazing, worth the price in itself, and it's a nice touch the pool being saltwater rather than overpowering chlorine, perfect for a quick dip after tanning and reading rather than a long swim. But it's size is clearly advertised so people shouldn't complain.

The card system I did not find an issue and appreciated te extra safety measures. The breakfast also had a great range and was good quality.

The location was ideal, felt like you were in real barcelona, yet close to major tourist sites. Don't be put off by what you read about El Raval, we are a young couple and always felt safe, just be sensible and don't take any valuables out and hide money under clothing.

All in all, this is an amazing hotel with lovely modern decor, helpful friendly staff with great facilities and rooms - in an interesting location, highly recommended, thanks Andante!

We will return to this hotel at any opportunity, whenever we're next in Barcelona! Which, reflecting on how beautiful the city is, won't be long!

The reception staff at Andante provided us with the most exceptional service; their English was flawless, which is really important to people like me with very limited Spanish. The staff provided us with maps, recommendations for dinner/breakfast/tapas - every suggestion was spot on, too; we loved each place they sent us to more than any place we found on our own! The staff also gave us a business card that was a on-the-house drink voucher for one of the places, which we thought was really nice. The reception staff also gave us a plethora of information about the area, safety and security tips and were available for anything we needed.

The hotel provides a computer area with a printer and internet access, security features such as a front-door, elevator and room access keycards, and of course the rooftop pool area is very stunning. The pool and sunbathing area is very small, and the hotel does a good job of not falsely representing it; we knew ahead of time that it was more of a decoration. The pool is big enough to float around and submerge yourself, but don't expect to be swimming laps or jumping in. The real feature of the pool is the amazing view and a chance to lay in the sun away from the crowded beaches. There are a limited number of seats available on the sundeck, so be prepared for that.

We found the rooms to be very clean, well decorated and quite nice all around. We didn't have a great view, unfortunately, but the room was quiet - no street noise. We had a great stay at Andante!
