“Nice apartment-style rooms in great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

We booked this hotel after reading good reviews on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. We only stayed one night but it ticked all our boxes. It's the Born district of Barcelona which is very trendy and also very picturesque, lots of bars and shops down a myriad side streets. It's walking distance to so many areas including the cathedral etc. The hotel itself was clean and comfortable, and most importantly pretty good value. We booked through Expedia and got a room for about 70 euros in between Christmas and New Year. Would happily recommend Hotel Boria to anyone going to Barcelona for a short break.

A group of 5 friends stayed here 3 nights in the beginning of September.

We were a bit worried as our booking made through hotels.com was cancelled about a month before departure "due to failure in bookingsystem". We were not satisfied with the offered alternatives and then suddenly we were able to keep our room at this hotel. No problems upon arrival.

A swift check-in and cool cava waited in the room.

Placed on the edge of Barrio Gothic and El Born the location is very nice.

The hotel standard is good and the apartments very suitable for smaller group who want to stay together.

The roof top terrace was nice, but better furniture should be available.

Tall scandinavians should be aware of the height in parts of the apartment. Heads clashing in to doors was not rare in the second bedroom, bathroom and kitchenarea.

Just read the previous reviewer's comments after coming here to find out more information about why our reservation has been just been cancelled - just 10 days before our stay. Stunned! Something dodgy going on here I suspect. Currently waiting for a callback from Expedia's re-location team - but I'm not that hopeful they'll find anything at such short notice for us. Quite angry and the children will be very disappointed.

Having booked via Thomas Cook, were perturbed to arrive and find the hotel closed. No notification prior to departure. After numerous lengthy international phone calls TC have managed to relocate us (a family of 5) in superior accommodation so thumbs up for that; could have done without the hassle and worry of being stranded in an unfamiliar city with the family. Thank heavens we arrived early morning so could at least sit in a square whilst waiting for the situation to be resolved.

We would have loved to have stay at Hotel Boria after having booked and paid for it on Hotels.com 4 months prior to our visit. One week prior to our stay, our reservation was cancelled with no explanation from the hotel. Our money was refunded per Hotels.com. They were unable to find similar lodging for the same price, especially at such short notice.

Took the train in from the airport and walked the distance through main streets which wasn't a problem despite large suitcases. A little hard to find the hotel, so make sure you have map/ directions prior to leaving. Location was excellent in that it was not on the Ramblas which is busy, but still close to shopping, eating, transit and not far from the beach etc. Staff was extremely helpful trying to locate lost luggage on a daily basis - 4 days later it did show up and they put it in our room while we were out. The only negative is that we found it to be loud at night and did not sleep well. It was Easter weekend, so I am not sure it would have been much different elsewhere but the sound did travel in the close walled streets. We travelled with two other couples and we all really had a great trip. Enjoyed the roof top deck on a couple of occassions for a glass of wine but it could use a couple extra chairs. Having the fridge helped for breakfast items and cold drinks. Had a great birthday dinner one night at Café de L'Academia. Opens at 8:30 and was full from that time on.

Room Tip: Loft as it had a sitting room.
