K+K Hotel Picasso
Ranked #45 of 519 Hotels in Barcelona
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 15, 2012

I have already stayed in several K+K Hotels, but this is simply the cherry on top. Hotel is very modern yet the atmosphere is cozy like in the other properties of the chain. I love the bathrooms with the walk-in shower and the frosted glass separation from the room as well as the attentive staff at the reception. I work in the tourism sector and I´m really stunned with the whole reception and service team - fast, efficient, not short on restaurant and bar suggestions and very friendly.
The location of the hotel is superb - just 10 minutes away from Las Ramblas and the old harbour, the area around the hotel (El Born) is filled with cute Tapas Bars and boutiques - sooo great for shopping! I knew the breakfast buffet from other K+K hotels and this one was just as good.

I have traveled all over Europe and stayed in several nice hotels. This one ranks among the top on my list for several reasons:

* Fantastic location: Right across Parc de la Ciutadella, and very near Santa Maria Del Mar. A short walk from La Rambla and easy access to the Arc de Triomf station on Red Line. Its in a great part of the city.

* Nice Rooms: are top notch. I usually prefer staying on the top floor to avoid road noise but I got a room on the 2nd floor and there was no noise with the Windows closed. A/C works well. There is a nice desk, bed, wardrobe, safe, TV and free wi-fi. Couldn't ask for more.

* Great Breakfast: is excellent and open until 11:30 in the morning. So no need to rush if you wake up late after a long flight. Eggs, cereal, cheeses, meats, coffee, champagne, fruits ... you can make it a brunch.

* Excellent Service: The staff here is really nice. The airline lost our bags and the hotel staff were very understanding and hospitable. Even otherwise, they had great recommendations for places to eat and things to do in Barcelona. Special props to Helene at the Front Desk for making our stay wonderful!

Stayed at the Picasso for 4 nights. Were given a room on th 4th floor overlooking the park as requested. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were friendly and efficient. The room was about the average for a city hotel but well appointed with excellent beds and spacious bathroom.

The hotel is perfectly situated if you want to be able to walk directly into the Born area which is full of bars, restaurants and quirky shops. The nearest Metro stops are Jaume1 or the Arc de Triomp, both 5 - 10 minutes away. Port Vell and the beaches are just 10 - 15 minutes away too.

Our rate included breakfast which was consistently good and served up to 11.30 or midday weekends! Handy for getting up early and coming back for a spot of brunch - the buffet was always refreshed an of a high standard.

Will come back the next time we're in Barca

Room Tip: Rooms facing the park are nicest.

We stayed at the Picasso for 7 nights, and this turned out to be a wonderful choice for our first visit to Barcelona.
The staff were all extremely courteous, accommodating, friendly and helpful. My girlfriend and I both concluded that the location was perfect, because it is relatively close to 2 metro stops, and it is across for the beautiful Parc de Cuitadella. It was nice that it is not amidst all of the late night noise, yet a short walk bring us to the action in the Ribera and Barri Gotic sections, not to mention the beach.
The room was big enough, the bed was very comfortable, and the daily breakfast was most delicious!
Highly recommended to anyone visiting Barcelona!

A very beautiful brand-new hotel in the heart of El Born. The service was impeccable and the room, although mine was a bit small, was very comfortable as well as well-designed and equipped. The beds were a dream. The location could not be any better. It's a bit on the expensive side but really worth a stay for those special moments.

This is a nice hotel situated in a quiet area beside a park. A short 10 -12 min walk takes you to the nearest metro station (Arc de Triomf). Ideally located close to the Museu Picasso. We were able to walk to most of the places we wished to visit and this suited us. We only used the metro to visit the Barcelona Pavilion and Miro Museum both of which are worth visiting but are situated right across the city from the hotel, The staff were pleasant and efficient and the buffet breakfast was good. We liked this hotel and would be happy to recommend it.

We were there in late September for a 4 night sightseeing trip. The hotel is well positioned for walking to many locations including the beach and for catching the tour buses. The staff are the most helpful and friendly I have ever experienced. Buffet style breakfast is unbeatable. Free wi-fi access is great. The rooftop pool is small. The room was adequate and clean with a super size bed and very comfortable.

Room Tip: Our room was at the back of the hotel and was very quite.
