“Get closer to the real Barcelona”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a great little hotel in a fantastic neighbourhood with lots of character. There are lots of great shops, bakeries and restaurants in the area. There's a fantastic bakery just north and around the block from the hotel - can't remember the name but it had a yellow sign. There was also a really good Chinese restaurant just south of the entrance and around the corner. Lots of supermarkets to choose from - we'd recommend the Bon Preu chain which has very high quality products for prices much less than you'd get at the duty free. More touristy sites are close by and the metro station is a short walk from the hotel. Front desk staff were polite, and the cleaning staff in particular were exceptional. Quality of sleep was very good and the general atmosphere is calm and quiet. My only criticism was that the "basic" room we booked was a little tight for two people with luggage, but overall we enjoyed our stay.

A very clean and friendly hotel, with a great location for a great price. I stayed her for three nights during October and was delighted with the service and value for money the hotel offered. The room was cleaned daily, and the staff were at hand if you needed something that you couldn't find. No teas or coffees available in the room but the hotels location made it possible to walk just down the road to nice cafes.

Room Tip: Don't bother including food into the hotel price as great cafés and bars serve the most amazing...

I loved this hotel. I always choose a hotel in the Eixample area as it's quieter than the main tourist areas. The Zenit Borrell has great rooms (spacious, modern, high ceilings, balconies), a fantastic restaurant (€10 for 3 courses) with an outdoor terrace to enjoy your meal and a little bar. It was cheap too, around £70 bed and breakfast. The staff are friendly too.

I'll stay here again next time.

The price / quality is fine in this 4-star hotel - to be in the downtown BCN. You'll probably not remember too much of this hotel afterwards but is is a fine base for exploring Barcelona. The rooms are smallish and the breakfast is expensive, however, but the place is functional: 10 minutes walk to metro station. Hotel is also quiet. You see also normal (=not so touristic) living area of Eixample around you. There is free use of laptop computer and you may print your boarding cards as well. Some of the staff is very helpful.

This hotel was clean and in a very good location. It is very close to a metro stop and is only about a 15-20minute walk to La Ramblas. The neighbourhood is also littered with small cafes and restaurants.
Although the room I was assigned was a little on the small side, it was comfortable and very clean. The a/c worked well and the free wireless internet signal was reliable.
I was impressed with the service and general good nature of each employee that I came into contact with. The front desk staff was extremely polite and helpful. They took their time, on more than one occasion, to point me in the right direction.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to other tourists.

Been here for two weeks now because of work.
This is a 4 stars hotel with a lower price compared to the average. I am in room 308, honestly a little small considering that I have to be here for one more week, yet the place is rather clean and neat. This is a single room, even though it has a double bed, but I know for sure that double rooms are bigger.
Minibar prices are fair, and the bathroom is very well kept.
The restaurant is fine as well, with pretty fair prices. I have eaten here twice and I always went for the weekly menu, which is €15 for a starter, a main course, a dessert, a bottle of water and a glass of wine. Good fish, great service, very professional.
The position is great as well, being 5 minutes walk from the Hospital Clìnic metro station (L5) and basically 20-30 minutes walk away from ramblas if you feel like going there on foot.

Definitely recommended!
