“Trendy oasis at Plaça d'Espanya”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

B Hotel is a great hotel. Prices are very competitive for a design hotel. Rooms are quiet, immaculate, and have a modern, minimal styling. Roofdeck pool and lounge provide a stunning panoramic view of the city. Free Internet access via Wi-Fi and cable (bring your own!).

B is perfectly situated outside the hustle and bustle of Gotic and Raval and is a short walk to all manner of public transport connections. Very conveniently, the airport buses A1/A2 stop at Plaça d'Espanya (2 mins walk). The local neighborhood is "off-the-beaten-path" but well-worth exploring for food options.

For context: Mercat de Saint Antoni is 15mins walking. La Rambla is 30 mins walking. Barceloneta is a 45 minute walk.

Highly Recommended.

Room Tip: 7th floor is the business floor; rooms have great views (and might be slightly bigger than lower roo...

We thought the hotel was excellent. It is very easy to find and get to because it is about 5 minutes walk from the Metro stop, Espanya. The front desk workers were very helpful and friendly. They spoke very good English and went out of their way to help.

The rooms are designed very nicely and are stylish. The modern, trendy room is very comfortable and peaceful. Even though the hotel is on a main road, we barely heard a thing from the street. The room was equipped with comoon toiletries and a safe for valuables. The free wifi is much appreciated and i wish more hotels provided this to their guests.

The rooftop pool is amazing and so were the Sangrias and food. Great relaxing atmosphere!

Overall, i would gladly stay again and recommend B-Hotel to anyone.

Really great spot for staying in Barca. Handy for the metro and aerobus (you can see the stop from the pool) would stay here again. Never ate here, as they are far too many great places around the city but the bar on the roof served great Mojitos.

I booked this hotel based on tripadvisor review but was quite disappointed and thought it was very poor value for money
Getting to this hotel was easy and it was very close to both aerobus stop an metro. location was good and reception service was good too.
however where it failed was on its actual bedrooms. poorly designed bathroom was the worst point. the shower head did not move and the shower screen was too small that water went everywhere and stayed pooled around the bath. even when being very careful and having the hold the shower head there was so much water out of the bath that it ended up going into the bedroom. the doors of bathroom and toilet did nto open or close well. the lighting was awful, so much so that make up for myself and shaving for my husband involved a lot of guess work! empty shower/shampoo gels were not replaced by room service. considering this hotel is fairly new it is not being maintained or cleaned very well as there was hard scale all around the shower attachment and large scale marks all around the sink
the terrace bar was also disappointing and lacking any style or atmosphere.
the whole hotel was very dark with a damp smell
you could constantly here the metro running under the hotel
I found that this hotel was very poor value for money and would not stay here again not recommend.

Room Tip: if you do stay ask for a room higher up so u dont here the metro

Dear B-hotel guest,

On behalf of the entire team of B-Hotel, we want to convey our sincere thanks for taking your time and explain to all of TripAdvisor your experience at B-Hotel dureing your stay in Barcelona.

We are extremely sorry you are disappointed with your staying at B-hotel.
Our hotel has been designed by one of the best architect in Spain, Mr Alfredo Arribas, being one of the most trendy hotel in Barcelona. We regret your dissatisfaction and we haven't lived up to your expectations.

We recognized some of our screen showers are not big enough, we greatly appreciate your notification, as comments like yours help us constantly improving our facilities (our maintenance department seals leaks found in bath).

Concerning the system of lights in the room, the hotel works with home automation, which allows different lighting scenes, and also does have independent reading lamps.
The lights system is offering a welcoming atmosphere to our guest, saving, at the same time the environment. (In the rooms there are instructions explaining how our light system works).
Nevertheless, we are doing our best to satisfy our guest expectations.

Regarding shampoo/gel, we have some amenities at the Front Desk for guests who need more. Please, if you come back to B hotel, just let us know!!

Our B-pool and terrace is, in summer season, our best attraction for guests, we are sorry you didn´t like it.

We truly appreciate if you could give us a second chance to demonstrate our good service as well as equipment and facilities.

Remaining at your entire disposal, we wish you an excellent day.

B-HOTEL TEAM

Stayed for 3 nights at the end of August 2012 and had a really comfortable experience. The interior design is very modern and the mood of the hotel during our stay was very quiet and relaxing. I liked the quirky lighting in the room and the air conditioning was quiet and effective. The check in/out experience was great with friendly and efficient service from the very pleasant staff.

The breakfast buffet has an excellent range of food and makes for a very pleasant start to the day. The roof top bar is a great place for a quiet drink late in the evening.

B Hotel in good location next to Arenas shopping mall with food places at bottom and top. Great place for accessing metro& local buses. Rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Roof top pool was nice but in need of more sun loungers tho! Nearby restaurants were good but pricey! We took a bus to Sitges would stay there if in Barcelona again! All in all great city with great sights!!!! take the tour bus you get to see a lot more!!!
