I was traveling through Spain by myself. I found the Andante to be a great value, very clean and user friendly.

This hotel is a very short walk from a subway stop and just a little walk to Las Ramblas but you have to walk through a sketchy neighborhood which I found ok during the day but not really great at night. There is a good Indian restaurant next door and a laundromat about a block away. It's much cheaper and faster to take the subway from the airport. I got a week pass and used the buses and subway and found them all really easy to use and there are stops very close to this hotel. There are buses that will pick you up right in front of the hotel and goes by all the beach areas.

The bed was comfortable, the bathroom clean and room was huge com paired to most European hotel rooms. The pool is small and I didn't spend much time there.

I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed: September 2013, traveled solo

An excellent hotel and extremely good value. We stayed here for 2 nights and will definitely stay here again. Staff were very efficient and helpful. Check-in and Check-out hassle free. The room was spacious, clean and modern. Very comfortable bed and nice and quiet. The bathroom was spacious modern and the shower was great. Views from the roof-top with the pool were amazing and good for taking photos. Staff very helpful and will give you lots of advice and call you a taxi. Late check-out of 12 noon is brilliant and for €2 you can store your cases/bags until you are ready to go to the airport. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were very welcoming and friendly. This hotel is better than some hotels that charge €50/60 more and the service is excellent. We will definitely stay here again. Location was perfect - 5 minute walk to La Rambla and Port Vell.

Room Tip: Get a room high up great views and quiet.

We stayed at the Andante hotel for 3 nights in April 14, the hotel was very clean and well turned out. The breakfast was good, the staff friendly and the location great. The only downside was the room we had was above the dining room and the noise of the dining room doors opening and closing made sure a lay-in was impossible. Just be careful to avoid room 101 if you want to sleep past 7am.

We were in barcelona for 4 nihts in September we stayed at the Adante as it was central and offered good value for money.

The rooms were modern, clean and a good size.

The view of barcelona from the roof top pool were breathtaking (i say pool you couldnt exactly swim in it but it was a nice feature)

You are a short walk from everything from this hotel and it is perfectly located for the underground.

I would definatly stay at this hotel again.

Excellent support and service from the frontdesk, they were very helpful with advice om sights and had very good recomendations for restaurants. The hotel is new and fresh, the rooms also clean, fresh and spacious. Very quite at night. Breakfast buffe well stocked and tasty. Pricing very good for this hotel and location also, very close to La Rambla and the harbour. Small but very scenic pool and pool area.
Se can warmly recomend this hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 610 which was at the end of the corridor and hence very quite.

This hotel was just fab. Stayed for a few days, unfortunately on a lower floor with not much of view, but hey there was a rooftop for that! Room was very large and clean and QUIET....ahhhhh, however appeared to be adapted for disabled use, so some difficulty showering as the fixture wasn't tall enough. HUGE bath, absolute delight! Big, fresh fluffy towels! Free use of the room safe which was very large, large enough for your average laptop I recon. Bed was very comfortable with fresh crisp sheets. Secure hotel with swipe card access for all areas. Helpful and friendly reception staff. The free wifi worked all over the hotel, even on the roof. Carrefour just across the street, but there's no fridge in your room so no perishables! Rooftop was perfect for sunset and to just relax, pool far too chilly for this time of year though sadly. Make sure you visit cafés el magnifico, xurreria, la boqueria and cera 23. Enjoy!
