“Clean, modern and well priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

I stayed here 3 nights and had a pleasant stay. The room was small, but not cramped and very clean and was ready for me to check in at 11:30am. My room had two open-able windows, but faced another building and wifi was included in the price and was fairly fast and strong connection throughout the hotel. Overall I would recommend this hotel but have a few minor complaints.

The air conditioning unit never worked. They sent people up twice to fix it and could never get it working. The breakfast (which if it isn't included costs 10?) is not very good. And lastly, the hotel is a ways from public transportation. At least a 15 min walk to the closest train.

We had a very lovely time there. Friendly staff, good and nutritious breakfast options, clean rooms, reasonable size (not large rooms though). And the location was quite central in Barcelona.
All in all, very happy with our choice and our stay.

Good hotel, but the wifi is unsecured so someone piggybacked onto my email and sent spam to lots of my contacts. Also there were trays and bottles regularly left on the stairs which are supposed to be an emergency exit in case of fire. Room a decent size but short of storage space. Breakfast a bit disappointing. Poor selection of cereals, over-sweet orange juice, sausages swimming in fat, yoghurt and flavour you like as long as it's banana.

If someone wants to have relax nights and comfortable sleep with reasonable price, easy access to famous attractions, hotel Zenit Borrell would be perfect for you. We just had 3 night stay in last week (in middle of April, 80€ per night). First of all, all hotel facilities are new, especially bathroom is new, modern, big enough and very clean, this gives people very comfortable feeling. We had a room, its window faces inside street, so it is very quiet, we didn't hear any noise during night. Metro station is just two blocks away, 5 minutes to walk. We even walked to Las Ramblas, other attractions nearby and airport bus stop from hotel. The grocery store and other cafes are just around the corner. Hotel staffs are very kind. The size of room is not so big, but it was not the problem, because we didn't want to stay inside room during daytime for a holiday trip. We will stay in this hotel again next time.

Booked at the last minute and we are not disappointed. As some people said already, rooms are small but comfortable. We really like the beds but because our room is at the front with balcony, it is a bit noisy, but manageable. Staff is nice, especially at the front desk (Alex is very helpful and nice). However, we did not like the breakfast. No fresh food salad or descent cooking breakfast for a 4 stars hotel. Anyway overall it is a winner and we will come back

Modern building with new facilities. Rooms are not very spacious, but big enough. Ours was interior, therefore it was very quiet and noiseless. Bed very comfortable. The bathroom is brand new and spotless clean. TIP: if your rate doesn’t include breakfast, you can save money booking in advance at the front desk. 10’5€p/p if you pay directly at the restaurant and 8€ if booked in advance. Breakfast is a buffet, with not a large variety of products, but they are of very good quality, fine enough for a good start to the day.
The location is very convenient, only 800m. from Sants train station and within walking distance to Paseo de Gracia and Plaza Cataluña. The eixample, where the hotel lies, is a very lively area, full of restaurants and bars.
This hotel is highly recommendable, specially for a short stay.
