“Great budget option”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

We were really pleased with our choice of hotel in Barcelona and would stay there again. The hotel itself was really clean and modern with comfortable beds and a good shower. We booked a small room but it was absolutely fine for what we needed, we wanted to explore Barcelona so were only really there to sleep. The only negative is that there the walls were very thin so you could hear a fair bit of noise, especially from other guests in the corridor. The location was perfect- just a short stroll from La Rambla with lots of quirky little bars nearby.

i stayed here for 4 days and the hotel is quirky clean spacious, only if you book large room,don't bother with small double, you be disappointed no room swing a cat,i upgraded room on arrival lovely bathroom comfortable bed, nice balcony over looking the narrow streets very busy with noise, but good double glazing keeps the noise out, air conditioning rubbish i couldn't see any difference, good job it wasn't hot hot, but had very nice weather for February,the staff very friendly, location for the main square and La Ramblas with in walking distance, only thing is do your homework where the hotel is on the map cause Barcelona side streets all look the same, and spend half the time getting lost or was that just me oops, if your staying in Barcelona a must is marmalade for food, amazing breakfast in there only few streets down, hard rock cafe stop cafe, and do the Barcelona tour bus, makes the holiday, amazing and the port, happy holidays

Room Tip: don't book small room!

It's exactly that you can expect of a 2 stars hotel ! Small, lovely, clean and well ocated (2 min to plaza catanya y 2 min to ramblas) A lot of skaters in the discrit :) Breakfast buffet is really nice for only 6 euros. Recomended if you wanna be out of the tourists tracks!

Room Tip: Mini rooms are really small... for almost the same price, choose the biggest one.

I wanted to take my boyfriend away for his 30th birthday so popped into my travel agent & got a fantastic deal!! The hotel was lovely & clean, really close to the rambla but we did struggle to find it as there's just loads & loads of little back streets & every other shop is a fruit & veg shop, so every street looks the same!! Breakfast is continental & only 6€ a day per person. We did the stadium tour around nuo camp which was fantastic & watched Barcelona play with was an amazing experience!!! We used the metro to get around which you can buy a ticket for 10€ & you can use it 10 times. There's plenty to see here it really is a fantastic stay, we will defiantly be returning & we'd stay in the same hotel again!!

Members of staff were nice, Nice receptionists which guided us towards a pharmacy at 3.00 am. The hotel was clean and nice, breakfast very nice and organised staff within brassery. The room was clean and the booking was value for money. Recomend!

Room Tip: Fifth floor, so you will not hear noises from downstairs.

Great little hotel! Good location, far enough from the Ramblas to be quiet (about a 5 minute walk), close to the university metro stop and has plenty of small supermarkets nearby for cheap bottles of water and snacks.

Room lovely, wifi throughout, bathroom (with actual bath) very clean, shower so powerful you can feel the dead skin peeling away! Free mini-safe, buffet breakfast very nice quality (and only 5.50 euro!).

Also, we stayed on my boyfriend's birthday, and when we got back to the room in the evening, we found a bottle of wine , a corkscrew and 2 glasses on the desk. I went into the bathroom and written on the mirror, in red lipstick (I'm not sure who's!) was "happy birthday!!! From Acta BCN 40". Such a wonderful surprise. Would definitely return.

We enjoyed our stay at the Acta BCN 40. They gave excellent service and helped us with everything we asked. The room got nicely cleaned everyday.The location is nice, close to La Rambla and plaza Universiat. The breakfast was ok. But it would have been nice to get some eggs and real juice.

I recommend this hotel and are sure we will go back there for our next stay in wonderful Barcelona :D
