“Perfect choice for our trip to Barcelona!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Hotel Actual is a clean, contemporary, comfortable hotel conveniently located within walking distance of many of Barcelona's most beautiful sites. The metro is just a few yards from the hotel giving you access to everything else! The staff was very helpful and friendly, allowing us to check in at 8:30 in the morning after our long flight and helping us purchase tickets online to Sagrada Familia late one night to avoid the long lines at the cathedral. Our room was very reasonably priced, including free internet, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. We would definitely stay again.

Stayed November 2013, traveled with family

The hotel is perfectly located. The room was not big or fancy but it was clean and confortable enough. The staff is nice and although we arrived early the room ready. The internet was ok. The price seemed fair. The parking is a little away from the hotel but the price is ok.

You have everything near: the underground, the Rambla de Catalunya, the Pedrera (I can saw it from the window of my room) but you are not so near to the centre, so you can sleep.

Rooms are nothing fantastic, but they are clean and comfortable enough for the small amount of time you will stay in the Hotel.

Incredible postion, 50 mt walk from Paseig de Gracia Barcellona city heart. I had a junior suite for E160 which is incredible. People are extremely professional: Monica at the reception is always willing to help with a smile Eva at the breakfast is incredibly kind. I travel a lot all around the world and can recognize quality!!!

Room Tip: Junior suite 221 is amazing

We found out about this hotel from my son who visited Barcelona with his family in 2012. Then my other son with his wife together with relatives stayed at this hotel too July 2013.
This is the reason why we also stayed here during our visit in October 2013.
It is nicely located near Passeig de Gracia and Diagonal.
There is no restaurant but that was not a problem because there are cafes and restaurants and bakeries around the area. Would highly recommend staying here.

We (a group of 3 ladies) stayed here in Oct 2013 for a long weekend. The hotel has a modern contemporary feel. The concierge staff were helpful, pleasant and efficient. Our room was a twin room with an extra bed installed. It was clean and the beds were very comfortable. There was ample space for all our clothes and cases and the staff did an amazing job of cleaning the room each day during our stay. The mini bar was well stocked and reasonably priced and there was free tea and coffee facilities in the room also. We had a view over the neighbouring Omm hotel which could be a little noisy at night but didn't bother us. Our package included breakfast. I highly recommend you take this option as it is of a very high standard with a large variety of foods, pleasant staff and well stocked and cleaned dining area. A big bonus was the complimentary tea and coffee available all afternoon and early evening at the dining room and library. The location is fantastic with the metro only a few steps away. Also two of Gaudi's buildings are right beside the hotel! This is my 3rd visit to Barcelona and this hotel is definitely the best value for money so far. I would have no hesitation recommending this hotel and will definitely use it again in the future.

My husband and I chose Hotel Actual after reading the wonderful reviews on the Trip advisor site and we were not disappointed.

The location is great! 5 mins walk to Casa Milà. It i also a short walk away from Las Ramblas. If you walk to take the Hop-on, Hop-off bus, there is a main stop very near the hotel too. At this stop you can talk the red as well as the blue line. There are many restaurants and eateries around so food was no problem at all.

The complimentary coffee provided was an additional perk after a long day of touring.
