“Fresh Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

This is a brand new hotel in a very nice and quiet residential area of Barcelona. In fact, when we visited in late June there was still work in progress in certain rooms and I guess not al floors were ready to receive guests.
-Positive points:
-Great room overall, very roomy, nice natural light, practical furniture with very bright and fresh colors. Also, loved the funky artificial light controls.
-Good airconditioning although a bit hard to control it.
-Big bathroom room without bath tube which I find very practical (personally, I think bath tubes are kind of grose in hotels...)
-For me, great location far from all the touristic chaos but still with very good connections as metro station is 5 minutes walking away. Also, the beach is close by which ensures you get some fresh air from the sea...
-Nice breakfast.

-Negative (somehow) points:
-Airconditioning was not working in public areas but I am sure it has something to do with the hotel being so new...
-Great shower booth, too bad the entire bathroom (and potentially the entire room) is getting flooded due to a design flaw of the floor.
-Wifi was not reliable in our room, but I am sure this was due to the location of the room at the far end of a corridor.

So, to summarize it, if you are looking for a clean new hotel away from the urine drenched center of Barcelona :) I think this is a great option with a very good price quality ratio.

Arrived late at night, got assigned a twin bed when it was obvious that we were in couple. The staff assigned us a new one. At 1am nowhere to eat and no food or snack in the minibar
Very comfortable bed, nice design, good breakfast but we couldn't get the staff to organize for the turkish bath. Waited one hour to discover nothing had been done.
Swimming pool VERY small + 1m deep so we decided to drive to the beach instead.
In final mixed feelings.

Dear guest,
Thank you for the time you have dedicated to write your opinions and comments regarding your stay in our hotel. We are pleased to know that our decoration and our breakfast service were both to your liking. Without a doubt, the satisfaction of our guests is our reason to be and what we in Vincci Hotels work for every day.
We regret, however, that we did not entirely meet your expectations and that you were not happy with some details. In this regard, we would like you to know that we will bear close in mind your suggestions: surely they will help us to continue to improve the service we offer our guests.
We are sorry, first of all, to not have been able to offer you from the beginning a room with a double bed. Requests are subject to availability and at the moment of your arrival it was not possible to assign one to you. Nevertheless we were pleased that, as soon as possible, we were able to change you to a room that better fit your preferences.
Regarding our snack bar we would like to note that it is open all day from 11:00 to 00:00.
We are also sorry if you felt that the waiting time to try the Turkish bath was excessive. With the goal in mind of guaranteeing that this service be completely be responsible in terms of the environment, this installation is kept inactive when no guests are using it and when turned on again requires a few minutes to be working properly.
We remain at your disposal for anything you may need.
Warmest regards,

We stayed at this hotel because friends from Australia had booked there and we were to meet them after 41 years of not seeing each other. This tells you we are a little older than trendy and hip although we would like to think we still are pretty groovy. The hotel is certainly a fun place to be. Bright and airy and comfortable with all the amenities you need. In Barcelona it is not necessary to spend much time in your hotel - there is so much out there to see and do. The location is perfect if you are arriving and leaving on the autoroute - very easy access. The hotel garage is excellent and very reasonable. You can leave your car behind and take a taxi or the metro or tram into the centre of town.

This hotel has not been opened long and I feel they are still getting used to the operation as it does not run as smoothly as it could. Breakfast, for example, was a disaster - juice, coffee, water, croissants, kept running out and people were standing around waiting for something to eat or drink. The hotel was full the night we were there but they must cater for full - its their business. The young man in the bar area was excellent and very helpful with a smile. The other staff were serious and seemed to need some guidance. Front desk staff were good. Although we don't normally stay in a hotel such as this I think we might well book again for our next visit to Barcelona because it is so accessible and there are no surprises. The rooms are white and bright and the beds are comfortable.

Room Tip: We were disappointed that we did not have the wonderful shower everyone talks about but a bath with...

We apologize if this was the case and will take additional measures so it does not happen again.
Ultimately we work to satisfy our guests and their opinions are what always guide us.

Well equipped rooms with extremely comfortable beds. Bathroom a delight with the rainfall shower. The terrace with pool and view over the city was lovely, but the sunbeds were quite uncomfortable. Excellent location close to the beach and the Diagonal Mar shopping center. When you want to go down town Barcelona just take the tram or the Metro.
Staff was friendly, but there seemed to be a lot of confusion over the booking system and people had to wait ages to get their rooms. Hopefully this will get better with time.
I will be happy to recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Barcelona.

Location: we got the train from Barcelona airport on the RENFE for 3.60 euros, then when we got to Barcelona sans picked up a 4 day travel card for 24 euros. Nearest tubes are a 7min walk away - we got lost, so print off a map if you're not getting a taxi straight to the hotel. Las Ramblas area is around 15eueos in a cab (20mins) or we got the tube to Liceu and walked through the Old town.

Rooms: bright and airy (don't let the black corridor initially deceive you!) lots of mod cons but no instructions, so you need to work things out by yourself! Comfy bed and awesome shower

Hotel: funky and modern. Two (small) gripes - 99 channels and only one in English (bbcworldnews) and while the sun loungers may look funky, they are the most uncomfortable metal things in the world. The beach is only a 10min walk away. Free wifi is a nice touch.

Food: go for food near here rather than La Ramblas area, it's cheaper and far better. The shopping mall is a 5 min walk and it's great for loads of food options as well as having a massive supermarket.

Staff: some are great, some werent. We were told the shopping centre was closed (when it wasn't) that we couldn't extend our booking because it was full (when it wasn't,it let us book online) crap dorections to the metro (which got us lost) but some others were really friendly. Really hit and miss!

Overall, great place to stay, absolute bargain!

Dear guest,
Thank you very much for choosing Vincci Hotels and for sending your comments and feedback regarding our establishment. We are pleased to know that your stay with us met your expectations and that our rooms, nearness to the beach and Wifi connection were all to your liking. That you had a good experience with us is our greatest satisfaction and what we work for every day in our chain.
We regret, however, that some details were not entirely to your liking. In this regard, we would like you to know that we will bear close in mind your ideas with the aim of continuing to improve the service we offer our guests.
Likewise we would like you to know that all of those guests who encounter difficulties using any of our facilities can mention it and our staff will take care of it.
However, we would like to note that the instructions for using the air conditioning system are displayed on the thermostat.
Regarding our television offerings, it should be clarified that they include 37 national channels and 88 international ones in different languages, among them 10 in English.
With respect to our staff, we apologize if they did not properly indicate to you the opening time of the shopping center nor how to arrive by metro. We would likewise like to mention that we have taken measures so that our receptionists provide this useful information to guests, complete and up to date.
We regret, also, that we were not able to lengthen your stay as you requested. The hotel was completely full at the time and we were not able to take care of your request. We would like to further clarify that the reason our website shows rooms that are available even though they are in fact occupied is because the online reservation system is continuously being updated, and sometimes there can be slight differences between real availability and what is shown online.
We remain at your disposal for anything further you may need.
Warmest regards,

A lovely little gem of a hotel. All white, bright, chic decor/fittings, subtle lighting, beautiful bedsets and spotless bathroom with enormous shower. Loved the whole thoughtfully artistic, yet unpretentious, feel, particularly the stylish lounge/dining areas and cleverly-decorated ceilings. There's also a smart little roof terrace/pool and the building's illuminated exterior at night has a welcoming aesthetic. Great price too for such a comfy, boutique-type stay. Well-located, just up from the seafront and with easy transport along the Diagonal. So pleased to have found this delightful place.

This is pretty much a brand new hotel. The whole place is very modern with a very arty modernist feel. The rooms have everything you need- big comfy bed with huge feather pillows, amazing rainfall shower, free wifi, mini bar.... Location is perfect - the beach is 5 mins walk away, metro is just around the corner again 5 mins walk (I recommend getting a metro travel card- we got one for five days for about 25€ you can use it as much as you like for metro, buses and trams). The hotel also has a (small) pool on the roof terrace with modern sun beds which is nice and quiet if you want to escape the busy beach. The staff all speak fluent English, and they have a locked area if you need to leave your bags with them after you have checked out if you have a late flight. And there's a bakery and corner shop opposite which is handy. We got a taxi to the hotel from the airport which cost 35€ and took half an hour but you can also use the travel card to get there and back.

Room Tip: The whole area is quite quiet so there are no 'bad' rooms
