The hotel is located perfectly with restaurants and shopping options nearby and 5 minutes walk to two different metro stations.
Rooms are great, clean and relatively big. The view is not anything special though. Breakfast is okay.
- Free Wifi
This hotel was very well situated close to place Catalayna and Las Ramblas but out of the busiest areas. There were numerous restaurants nearby, the main shopping areas were close and the central tourist information centre was also very close. The room was a good size. The staff were very friendly and helpful, all spoke English. We loved the breakfasts and enjoyed the rooftop pool and bar.
We stayed at this hotel early in July. The hotel is located in a great neighborhood. Good cafes, bakeries and bars are close by. The room was comfortable with a window overlooking La Rambla Catalunya. Reception staff was very good. There is a roof-top bar with fantastic views of the city.
Me and my friend stayed here the first week of july. We upgraded the room to one with a balcony on floor 1 for a total of €58 per person and it was SO worth it, no question about it. Used the balcony every single day.
Location was super! A comfortable walking distance to Plaza Catalunya and the bus stops at Passeig Gracia as well as all the shopping.
The staff at HCC Regente was very nice but I would have expected them to know a bit more about the town (or Google it?) such as bus stops, good restaurants, supermercados, walking distances etc. But since the WIFI works great in the rooms, we managed anyways.
Room was nice and clean and the beds were very comfortable.
The pool on the rooftop is SMALL, thus only see it as a bonus, not the main attraction of the hotel. And the rooftop bar sangria is a big no no. But super nice to just sit up there and relax in the afternoon sun.
Cab to/from the clubs near the port (W, Opium...) is not more than €10.
Flight bus to/from the airport was €5.90 and you can pay in both coins and bills at the bus stop by Catalunya. Takes 25 minutes.
We didn't have the hotel breakfast. Just try a "croissant bikini" and some other goods at Il Caffe di Fransesco (local coffee shop chain down the street) and you'll be pleased!
Tips: Try Cerveceria Catalana nearby for superb tapas and service (not sangria though), and Ciudad Condal down the street for superb sangria. Also Cornelia & Co. for good wine and food.
And while I'm at it: Try the burgers and Sangria at MakaMaka just nearby Barceloneta beach. Amazing!! Be prepared to wait a few minutes for a lunch table.
After searching for a single night stay for a family of 3, I was offered a room in this hotel. The description stated that each room had a double + single, or three single beds, which was fine with us, in both cases. However, upon receiving the confirmation, I was mailed by the hotel, and told I had to pay an additional €65 for our child (9 years). That would have increased the price to over €200, which is ridiculous for this hotel.
I never leave my money in the places that try to rip off travellers, even if that's happened to someone else. Stay away!
En primer lugar, lamento que se haya llevado esta mala impresion de nuestro establecimiento. Me gustaria poder saber exactamente cual fué su reserva y sus fechas de estancia para poder averiguar que es lo que ha pasado realmente y a que se debe este malentendido Con los datos que tengo me es imposible saber cual fué su reserva.
En nuestra web , tenemos especificados cuales son nuestros tipos de habitación así como nuestros precios, y de esta misma forma, esta misma información es la que ofrecemos cuando contactan con nosotros en el hotel.
Desconozco si quizás realizó su reserva a traves de un intermediario y no se interpretó realmente cuales eran sus necesidades de reserva y quizás de ahi venga esta diferencia.
Me gustaria que pudiera contactar conmigo para poder estudiar la incidencia y explicarle personalmente esta discrepáncia..
Animamos siempre a nuestros clientes a que nos informen sobre los inconvenientes que puedan tener , para solucionarlos durante su estancia y así hacerla más placentera.

We spent 4 nights there with 2 rooms for my husband and I and two grown up sons and upgraded one to superior. The benefit of this being a window to the street and slightly bigger so in retrospect probably wouldn't bother again. The staff at reception were very friendly however the hotel is generally lacking in social space. That's not a problem as you have many bars and restaurants nearby. Rooms were clean and air con perfect. The rooftop bar was slightly disappointing as a bit tired looking but the view is tremendous. Only complaint to make really was the breakfast which was included in our package. Although there was lots to eat it was of very low quality. Why in a country with an abundance of fresh fruit they served tinned peaches and pineapples? The pastries were obviously cheap multi packs and not cooked fresh. We tried the hot food but that was horrible with what looked like a tinned hot dog being served as a sausage!! We decided to walk 2 blocks to Taller Tapas and got a delicious cooked breakfast for 5 euros and coffee for 1 euro. The location near to Paseig de Gracia is fantastic and we took the Metro from there to all over the city. Thanks to reception staff they printed off our online booking for Sagrada Familia which I would recommend to beat the queues.
Apreciado Cliente ,
De entrada quiero agradecerle todos y cada uno de sus comentarios y me alegro que su estancia en nuestro hotel haya sido de su agrado.
Tomo nota al respecto del comentario sobre el producto del desayuno y lamento no haber satisfecho sus espectativas al respecto, trabajaremos al respecto.
Con respecto al comentario de la fruta, en el buffet disponemos de fruta fresca diariamente que vamos variando a lo largo del servicio de desayuno. A la vez ponemos tambien fruta en almibar , ya que algunos de nuestros clientes así la prefieren tambien.
No quiero despedirme de usted sin donarle una vez más las gracias por sus comentarios y deseo que nos podamos ver
