“the best in barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

We come to Barcelona for ten years now, once or twice a year, and this is the best hotel we stayed. The staff makes you feel welcome, you get different information than the usual of the city, the room is great, the decoration is super, and the free cakes and coffee in the morning is maybe something small, but is is typical for this hotel: with attention, with love.

This is not the first time we did stay in the Violeta Boutique Hotel - and it was as nice as the last times. Besides on has the feeling to come back home -as this is not the type of "unpersonal" standard hotel - you could find whereever you go on this planet - but a very nice friendly place! what a great support at the reception desk for finding great places to eat out and our room was absolutely nice and quiet ! Thanks to the whole team and see you again soon!

We liked Violeta Boutique so much we extended our stay in wonderful Barcelona by two days. We had a gorgeous (and spotless) room - Room 8 - with a terrace and tea and coffee making facilities. The bed was oh-so-comfortable and the modern bathroom with rain shower was fabulous as were staff who helped us negotiate Barcelona, printed out transport timetables, offered advice about where to find good accommodation in Madrid and cheerfully brought an ice bucket and wine glasses to our room whenever requested. Violeta lived up to its boutique tag with lots of cosy nooks and crannies including comfy sofas and nice lighting, and while Violeta does not offer breakfast, coffee and cakes were provided free of charge each morning. We did have an issue with poor internet connection which staff did their best to address. However, all was not lost, as internet connection was available in a lovely spot adjacent to the reception area. Violeta, like Barcelona, is stylish, elegant and welcoming.

Location is also good, close to the metro and all that Barcelona has to offer.

Room Tip: Rooms facing on to main street have pretty balconies and views and any noise is effectively filtered...

Upon our arrival, the awesome receptionist helped carry our luggage upstairs! He gave us tons of helpful tips and things to do around the city, places to eat, etc. Our room was very large and clean. The decor was great throughout the "hotel". Breakfast was okay (coffee & muffins). I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. The location doesn't get any better!

I know Barcelona very well, I used to work in several high class hotels, but never had such a warm and professional experience as in The Violeta Boutique! Although you're in the middle of everything, rooms are very quiet and peacefull. This time travelling on my own, I felt very comfortable and safe here. Hope to be back soon!

We stayed at the Violeta Boutique Hotel and loved it...
The large rooms are very clean and comfortable with everything you need for a good nights sleep. The lovely bathroom had complimentary toiletries which was great when traveling light. There is a nice private outdoor terrace area, and you can access the hotels computer if needed. The Violeta is is close to Catalunya Square and is within walking distance from many of Barcelona's attractions. It is easy to find if coming from the airport on the bus. In the morning the staff serve free coffee and muffins in a nice little communal area. The staff could not have been nicer. We checked out and left our luggage as our flight was not till late at night... when we returned to pick it up the girl at the desk offered us a coffee while she checked if our flight would be leaving on time. I don't think you get service like that from a larger hotel. The only problem was I could only stay for one night... I wish it was for longer :-)

Room Tip: The rooms at the front have balconies.

Stayed here for 2 nights. The location is about a 5 min walk from Plaça Catalunya which is great. I found it pretty simple to find the hotel, however it could be difficult for people to locate as it is basically the 2nd floor of a building and you need to be buzzed in.
I loved the uniquiness of the boutique and rooms. The bedding was fantastic, I could have slept in it all day.
My only complaint about the location was that I found the room to be a bit cold. When I went to the front desk to inquire about the heating, they advised me it was a building situation, and I could not change my room temperature. Once it was in bed, the duvet was so warm I was roasting away, however for just relaxing in the room, watching some tv, repacking luggage, I found it cold.
My recommendation to them would to have extra blankets/throws or provide bath robes.

Otherwise highly recommend. Very lovely and unique place.
