“Great hotel....staff could use some charm”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

This hotel is ideally located in Barcelona; nice clean and comfortable rooms; recently updated; access to all of Barcelona either by foot (which we did mostly all walking), metro right up the street and abundant taxis. I would have given this a 5 star rating but the staff was not exactly welcoming. We arrived from an overnight flight from the US and while we did not expect to have the room ready at 9:30 in the morning the staff could have been a bit friendlier knowing we had been travelling for 15 hours to get there.

Great pool and lounge on the roof, seriously a fabulous hotel. We would go back again and just be prepared for aloof staff.

Room Tip: Corner suite is worth the extra price. Very roomy and comfortable.

Fantastic hotel in great central location; 5 minutes walk from Placa Catalunya, Las Ramblas etc and just next to the Universitat underground station. Very contemporary decor and spotlessly clean throughout. Genuinely free fast wifi throughout the hotel, including the rooms. Excellent breakfast with great range of fresh food.
Would recommend this hotel without reservation.

We chose this hotel from the reviews in Tripadvisor and it was a spot on choice. We travelled with our 5 month old baby and could walk to all touristic spots in Barcelona but far enough from the busy streets. We felt that the room was a bit tight with the pushchair and the baby cot but they said they did not have a bigger room. The rooms were nice and clean with large comfortable bed. We had breakfast couple of times which was fine but there are also nice alternatives close by if you want a change. We were close to many nice restaurants so we did not have to walk far after dinner to get the little one into bed timely.

We recently stayed eight nights at the Hotel Jazz and highly recommend it to any visitor to Barcelona looking for a central location, service and good value. First, the location. Hotel Jazz is a short walk from the Aerobus drop off at Placa Catalunya, so air travellers can take advantage of an inexpensive (5.5 Euro) and easy ride into town and experience a problem free arrival, which is always nice when laden with luggage. Then, once you've settled in, you can easily walk to many of the major attractions; La Rambla, Barri Gotic, La Pedrera, the Picasso Museum and many more. And of course there are many good restaurants nearby as well. That brings me to the service. Throughout our stay, the staff were friendly and accommodating. We were given many great suggestions for dining, all of which we thoroughly enjoyed. We were also given helpful suggestions for travel around the city using the very convenient bus and metro routes. On our last day, they were kind enough to grant us a late check-out (not always possible) which allowed us to keep touring right up until we had to leave for our outbound flight. Finally, we found the Hotel Jazz to be a very good value. This is always a relative assessment, but for a modern, high amenity hotel, centrally located in a major city, we were pleased with the cost.

In an eight day stay, lots of things can go wrong, but at the end of our stay we were delighted with how much went right. Kudos to the Hotel Jazz!

We recently returned from a 10 day trip to Spain, 4 of those days were spent at Hotel Jazz in Barcelona. Overall we were very pleased with the stay. The rooftop bar/pool area is beautiful with lots of sun. Elevators were quick and quality of rooms were good. We stayed in 3 hotels throughout Spain and Hotel Jazz had the largest rooms, which we were happy about after spending over a week in small, cramped rooms while in Madrid and Sevilla. Decent location because close to Plaza Catalunya and several metro stops. We were happy with our decision to stay here.

Hotel Jazz is clean and modern. The staff was friendly and helpful, providing maps, umbrellas and advice. Every staff member we encountered spoke English. The rooms had a US 110 Volt outlet, so we didn't need an adaptor for our phone, computer, electric razer, etc. The bed was very comfortable. The location is absolutely perfect. It is one and a half blocks from La Ramblas. This is far enough to be mostly free of the noise, yet close enough for easy access. I can't imagine anyone being unhappy with this hotel.
