“Perfect hotel.”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Just back from spending 3 nights at this lovely hotel. Unfortunately the weather was awful (rained every day) but the great hotel made up for it. Lovely modern room, fantastic breakfasts and such helpful staff. The position of this hotel is perfect for seeing the sights, close to the Marina, Park and the Old Town. Plenty of restaurants surround the hotel itself and there are numerous others to be discovered in the surrounding streets. We seemed to find a more bars, cafes and restaurants every time we went out. The area around the hotel is currently being refurbished and when the work is complete, the area will be even more amazing.

Can't wait to return, which will be soon as there is so much we couldn't do.

I stayed at the K+K Picasso during the first week of April 2013 with my fiancé for three nights. I cannot express enough what a lovely hotel this is.

The rooms are of a high standard. We had a large room with a sofa and French doors with a balcony. The bathroom had a modern, white suite with underfloor heating. The room was incredibly clean.

We had a safe (free), complimentary wifi in the room (an unexpected bonus) and the usual tea and coffee facilities. There was a flat screen TV with UK channels, which was handy to catch up with news back home.

The breakfast was lovely. Everything you would expect- cereal, fruit, pastries, yogurt, English breakfast etc. The staff are extremely helpful and can't do enough for you.

The hotel facilities include a bar and a roof terrace. Although it wasn't quite hot enough to use the pool, it looked really refreshing. I'm sure this will be great in the summer. I'd recommend a gin and tonic at the bar!

The location is great. It's a 10 minute walk to the Metro stop Jaume. There are lots of restaurants off of the side streets. Taxis are reasonable too if you would prefer not to use public transport.

I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel and if we were to return to Barcelona we would definitely stay here again.

We decided to stay here for our anniversary, it was our first time in Barca, and choosing K&K just based on tripadvisor reviews was a shot in the dark, but we were not disappointed. From arrival to departure the whole stay was seamless, even from the pre ordering of roses and cava in the room for our arrival (I know its a bit corny on an anniversary right, but what the hell!)

The location of the hotel is great, in a nice quiet area next to the park, but with everything within walking distance. We had great weather and did all the sites on foot. All in all a great satay, and we will for sure be back to k&k Barcelona, as well as trying their other hotels, I see thay have one in Paris!, so lets go!

Also, the Born area, where the hotel is situated is just cram packed full of great restaurants!

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor facing the park, recommended, quiet and great view

Right next to the Park and zoo and tons of green space if your kids need space to run. Staff was wonderful with the kids 3,6, & 8. Note, the pool is not heated so prepare your kids if you don't come in the summer. Nice rooms.

This is an absolutely great hotel!

it is located in the El Born area of the city opposite the Parc Ciutadella and only a 10-15 minute walk from the port area and the Placa de Catalunya.

From the minute we walked through the door to the minute we left, the staff were wonderful. Everything was explained to us, we were provided with city maps and some of the areas we may want to visit were highlighted.

We were give a room on the third floor which was clean and quite large compared with most of the rooms we have had before in other city centre hotels. It was an inward facing room so there was little or no view from the large window. The bathroom has glass walls which does mean the whole room is illuminated at night if anyone uses the bathroom. Some reviewers don't like this, but we thought it was great. The bed was comfortable with extra pillows in the wardrobe. There was adequate storage space for our 4 night stay.

There is also tea/coffee making facilities, a mini bar (for which there is a charge) and a free safe in the room. The wall mounted flat screen TV has a large choice of channels in various languages.

The hot and cold breakfast buffet was great with the usual fruits, breads, ham cereals, pastries, sausages, eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes and a selection of fruit juices. there was also a selection of teas and espresso coffees from a nespresso machine. There was also filter coffee available from the staff. The staff were once again excellent. They were efficient and very polite. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

There is a roof pool and terrace which we visited but didn't get chance to make use of. The pool apparently isn't heated as the hotels website says.

We had a great stay and wouldn't hesitate using the K+K Picasso when we visit Barcelona again.

Stayed here for 2 nights in April 2013 and was not disappointed. Location-wise, the hotel is situated in the wonderful Born area, close to the Gothic quarter. We will definitely stay here again.

The hotel has good facilities and friendly, helpful staff. The breakfast buffet is superb - all ingredients were fresh and good quality.

The rooms themselves are clean and functional without being inspirational in terms of decor, but then the hotel serves business as well as leisure clients.

I'd thoroughly recommend the hotel in terms of price, location, quality and staff, but if you're looking for something a little quirky/boutique then this probably isn't a great choice.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the park can provide a nice early morning/evening view.

Initially upon arriving in Barcelona it was rather tricky finding the hotel but we finally managed to. Unfortunately the first night we were given a very small room, certainly not what we had asked for. The front desk staff were very helpful though and we moved to a much more comfortable room the next two nights. The staff here are exceptionally friendly and helpful.The location is interesting, in El Born and walking distance to the Arc de Triomf subway/train station.
Would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Make certain to check out the room first just in case it is one of the tiny ones.
