We have no idea how this outstanding hotel can only have a 3-star rating! It's far better than most 4-stars we've stayed in and given its perfect location, all adds up to a fantastic bargain which you really ought to grab. The hotel has smart modern "urban contemporary" styling throughout and ours was a very comfortable and spacious room (with efficient heating/aircon) and a first-class bathroom you'd expect to find in a much more expensive hotel.The location is perfect - only a couple of minutes walk from the airport bus stop so no need for taxis or complicated transfers - and only a minute more to La Rambla and the rest of central Barcelona so everything is in easy walking distance. There's a roof top pool with great views of the city skyline, the wifi is free and the whole place is obviously well run, efficient and spotless. If you really want to be picky, it's true (as other reviews have mentioned) there's no tea/coffee making stuff in the room and most of the TV channels are Spanish or Catalan - but neither of these mattered to us. Without a doubt we'd recommend the Hotel Jazz to anyone and definitely plan to stay there again soon.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise from the street below - go for floors 6 or 7

Just back from 6 wonderful days in Barcelona staying at Hotel Jazz. Lovely hotel. Warm and friendly. Security A 1, must better than any I have been in before. Rooms modern and comfortable with every possible need catered to including fridge. Bathroom stocked with soaps and gels and hairdryer. Two minutes from Aerobus to Airport. two minutes to Cataluna Square. Two minutes to La Rambla and hopon -hopoff bus. In short a fabulous place to stay. will definitely go back and stay there in the new year.

We stayed at the Hotel Jazz for 2 nights from the 2nd - 4th December.  We arrived via aerobus which was very simple (we had visited previously and got a taxi which was 4 times the price for 2 people based on a return trip.) The bus stop is approx. 1 minute walk from the university stop, however you can stay on until plaza catalunya which is only 5 minutes away. 

We arrived at 10.30 a.m and did not request our room to be ready upon arrival however we were shocked when we were handed the keys straight away (certainly not something you would expect in Europe, speaking from experience.) 

The room and en suite were spacious, especially by european standards. The bed was comfortable and clean, shower was powerful, decoration was tasteful and the veiws were lovely. We were on the 4th floor and did not hear nor see our neighbours.  The mini bar was stocked to the brim and good value for money as well as the room service.  A safety deposit box was included in the room price which we rely on and is sometimes not provided elsewhere. A vast supply of toilletries was provided for both of us (rare) and re-stocked daily - we have never experienced this even in 5* accomodation.  

The metro and road can be heard from the room however this is to be expected and does not disturb sleep.

The hotel staff were helpful when asked questions, however not outwardly friendly when passing the reception.  

We visited the hotel bar and pool however did not use the services despite looking pleasant.  The terrace provides stunning veiws with sun loungers and tables - possibly not suitable for December but the sun is hot when it comes out. 

Location is second to none (we had previously stayed on carrier d'aribau which was convenient however the Jazz was a huge improvement.) There are many bars and restuarants within walking disatance including the Hard Rock Cafe and a cosy Irish bar.  Las Ramblas is a 5 minute walk. 

Overall for location, price, standards and space provided we would be more than happy to come back as Barcelona is our favourite city and this hotel really does it proud.

Well, Jazz Hotel is located at the best place one can stay in Barcelona. it is just above the "Universitat" metro station and about 5 minutes walk from Catalunia square.
(This means that most of the city center is in walking distance).
Hotel itself is modernly designed, rooms are specious and include all necessary amenities -
safe, minibar, HD TV etc. Room lightning is also very good, no very common in European hotels.
Breakfast - basic but good variety of choices.
The staff, oh the staff - they are so nice, helpful and motivated. Very knowledgeable and always a "YES" with a smile.
Around the hotel - many restaurants at walking distance, good coffee at the "Jamaica".
Next time in Barcelona - you will find us at the Jazz hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor (6 to 8)

We liked it a lot. Four nights in late November. Location is convenient to Aerobus + Pl. Catalunya, Rambla, and the Gothic quarter. 25 mins nice walk to Pl. Espana conference center. 30 mins lovely walk to Segrada via Eixample. Facts: Curtains offered perfect blackout. No noise from adjoining rooms. Modern trendy and functional design. AC system was effective and very quiet. Lots of lights, and easy switches to control them. Floating hardwood floors. Reserved a "Jazz room" which had two beds side-by-side sheets tucked in separately (we had to untuck!). No coffee machine but many coffee shops within meters outside. No free H2O but supermarkets within 30 seconds outside. Complaints about noise in other reviews here we felt were overstated - we heard a low rumble periodically, that was perfectly tolerable. We were on 6th floor street side. Flat screen TV with CNN + BBC World. Staff were efficient, friendly and competent. Smart card room key to operate elevator adds to security. Place is cute and convenient. I'd go again. Roof top pool was open - would be terrific if we'd had 10 degrees C more.

Just back from six nights in Barcelona. This hotel suited our needs perfectly. The Airport shuttle drops you off about a two minute stroll away and you can pick it up back to the Airport about a five minute stroll away. Staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel is excellently located. You are right at the top of La Ramblas and have access to everything via foot, metro and bus. Room was a good size, nicely decorated and the bathroom was good with a nice added extra of a box of bits and bobs like dental kits etc that you might need. The only slight down side is that we had a room on a lower floor looking out at a small back courtyard. So no view and a bit dark, but then were weren't in Barcelona for the view from our hotel room! Restaurant menu was also a bit limited, but you are surrounded by hundreds of restaurants and coffee shops, so no danger of going hungry. Roof top pool is small but is a nice extra. The weather was nice enough for us to be able to sit up on the roof area for a short while in the middle of the day and it would be really nice in even warmer weather. Traffic noise does travel up though, so not particularly peaceful. Do watch the prices in the restaurants and bars. We got fleeced the first day, but got wiser after that. You get charged more for sitting outside (even in November) than inside. Make sure you see the price of what you want before you order. We paid €4.20 for a coffee the first day and then discovered we could get it for €1.30! The main area for fleecing appears to the La Ramblas, so eat and drink in the many places either side. The Cathedral designed by Gaudi and still being built has to be the highlight of our visit - don't miss it. It's worth queuing for.
