“An over-all good experience”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

I stayed there for a week with my boyfriend, we liked our room, everything was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. I can definitely recommend getting the breakfast buffet. They have a Spanish omelet in it we really liked, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, bread, coffee etc. They offered egg and bacon some mornings but it had clearly been sitting out for a while and tasted pretty gross. We weren't big fans of the bread they offered or the coffee but the rest was pretty good.

The gym they offer does not have a lot of equipment and it costs 10 euros extra (pr room). The pool was small enough for it to be awkward to be in it when there was someone else in it too and more than half the chairs around it were broken in one way or another. Generally, my advise is to look past the spa/pool/gym because everything else worked great. We feel like it was still a great bargain for what we paid for.

Location-wise, it's great for shopping (it's in walking distance from a metro station that takes you to Placa Catalunya in minutes), but not so great if you're there for the beach.

Dear Guest,

Thank you to spend some minutes in order to give us your opinion about your stay in the Hotel Acevi Villarroel. We will keep working to improve in the different aspects you suggest.

Our swimming pool area is very appreciated for our guests, specially because they don't expect so relaxing pool area in a hotel located in the city centre.

Thank you again for your review and I hope to receive your visit again.

Regards,

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights with my two kids and my husband, we got two connected rooms with a lot of space. There were modern, had great bathrooms and were very clean. The hotel is about 6 blocks from the Paseo de Gracia if you are not to tired you can actually walk all the way, and it has a small supermarket just across the street to by water and snacks if you need. It has parking a bit to small but a guess most are like that in Barcelona

Location in a quiet residential area with plenty of restaurants and small shops nearby, about 10-15 minutes walk to the city centre. Airport bus stops at Urgell with only 3-4 minutes walk to the hotel, easiest way to get there. Rooms are very clean, high standard but thin walls between rooms, had two connecting rooms which worked really well. Breakfast was better than expected, small selection but all you need. Would rate this hotel higher if it was not for the extremely small and disappointing pool (more like a shared bathtub) nowhere close to the promoted pictures. Also, you have to pay extra to use the gym, have never seen that anywhere before (not sure a visit to the hotel gym is worth 10 Euro per day). Good that Barcelona has a great beach.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much to gives your opinion about your stay. We will consider your comments in order to improve our service.

The Hotel Acevi Villarroel is located very close to the main touristic attractions in the city centre and is lucky to have a swimming pool, not very usual in a hotel in Barcelona. It is perfect to relax after a long day of tourism.

Thnk you again for your opinion.

Wonderful location. Only 400m from Urgel metro which is 2 stops from Las Ramblas. Staff are very helpful and hotel rooms are comfortable clean and well maintained. Also on a bus route. Hotel is in the eixample area of Barcelona and very central. Many cafes, bars and restaurants near by for all tastes. There is a wonderful Italian restaurant across the street. Also near super markets for the odd thing or too. Recommend for all users. Staff at reception 24 hrs.

Room Tip: All the rooms I have stayed in are very good but the quieter rooms are away from the main street but...

Arrived via the airport bus a2 to metro stop urgell, it's a five minute walk from there, 6.0 euros each from the airport, bargain. taxi on return was 30 euro for 2 of us.
Hotel reception was nice and clean, staff efficient and very cool and welcoming from the aircon, room on 6 th floor room 608 not the best view but a lovely quiet room overlooking flats opposite courtyard.

Room Amenities
Very clean, cleaned daily
Fresh towels each day, very nice quality indeed,
Comfy beds with nice pillows, great nights sleep
Wifi in room works very well
Smart tv on wall, but few English channels, no problem to us but maybe to some ?
Nice bathroom with a good shower
Rather odd that the bathroom sink was actually in bedroom with a modern glass sink, however it did take ages to drain and be warned there is no overflow!!
Unfortunately in the attempt to be modern and contemporary a decision was made to install a frosted glass door with a 1" gap all the way round. So not very private and you could see someone sitting on the toilet, not very pleasant
Aircon was effective 3 nights out of 4, for some reason it didn't work one night due to a hotel issue ?
Breakfast was ok with some cereals, juice, coffee, some different breads to toast, bacon on 1 day other days were sausage only, 1 very spicy indeed, cold meats, cheese etc, adequate but nothing special
Located 15 minutes ( at a reasonable pace ) from the top of cataluni square where the rambla starts, and 30 mins from the port, in the other direction was espanya square and the magic fountain, so well located if you don't mind walking
Near urgell metro stop (5 mins) where is 2.15 euro each to most attractions
We thought it was a fair hotel at a fair price in a good location with friendly helpful staff
Would go again if visiting Barcelona and would recommend
