“unexpected surprise in Barcelona”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Four women ended up here unexpectedly when an apartment we rented did not work. We walked around the corner and found this wonderful hotel. Ricardo was welcoming and placed us in wonderful rooms that overlooked the alleyway. I can not say enough about the helpfulness of the staff members there. Ricardo and Marti retrieved lost bags from the airport for us, explained and mapped out must see sites in Barcelona, and quickly made us feel welcomed in this wonderful city. The rooms where large, beds comfortable and large bathrooms with plenty of hot water. The meals we had at their restaurant was the best we had in Barcelona.
When I return to Barcelona I will definitely stay here, largely due to the warm and always helpful reception from Ricardo and Marti. Thank you both.

I knew the restaurant of Market Hotel but this was my first time at the Hotel and we were quite satisfied with it.

The Hotel is charming with nice decoration and the best of it is that it is located in a nice area in Barcelona which is not too busy and centrally located. A couple of metro lines are located 5 minutes distance from there (Poble sec, green line or Urgell, red line).

I would definetly recommend it!

we had a lovely junior suite with a huge terrace for a long weekend trip. staff was extremely helpful and friendly. we enjoyed a great meal in the hotel restaurant which is famous for its excellent menu. good location and good value. excellent bathroom with separate shower and bath. one night we had loud neighbours and we couldn't sleep because the walls seem not very thick. it was a couple fighting the whole night but that's not really the hotel's fault. we were very happy and would recommend to stay there.

My daughter and I stayed in October for three nights. The reason I booked was due to a delicious dinner experience two years ago.
The breakfast is well worth the 10€, my daughter is a very fussy eater but loved the well stocked buffet. A great start to the day.
The hotel is very central, therefore we did'nt use the public transport we walked.
We will definately stay in this hotel again.

I stayed here for 2 nights based on a recommendation from a friend who had stayed previously. The hotel is in a great location with a lot of interesting food options in walking distance. The room itself was large and the bathroom shower is amazing.

I really wish I could stop the review here but unfortunately I cannot.

At some point recently the hotel has started hiring out part of the lower ground floor for parties. This would be fine if the area was sound proofed, but it is not. My suite was two floors up but I could still hear everything coming up through the stairwell. I brought this to the attention of the front desk who had no interest in asking them to turn the music down.

The front desk told me that the party would end at midnight and I would have to accept this.

If Ipay for a hotel room I expect to be able to relax in it during the night. Sadly I will not be back to this hotel. A shame as the location is good.

Room Tip: Apparently the smaller rooms near the front of the hotel do not get the noise. Friends of mine were...

The hotel is located near San Antoni metro (~5min walk) and is near pubs, cafes, restaurants and bakeries.

Room wise, do note that there are no microwaves and electric kettles BUT complimentary apples and bottled water are available at the reception :)

Rooms are warm with a mobile radiator with adjustable settings. Water is always hot (a lifesaver in cold weather) though you'll need to wait a while for the hot water to get piped through.

Room sizes are nice and cosy. The toilets are about the same size as the room (yes, it's That spacious!)

Breakfast is available at €10 though I did not try it as there were bakeries and cafes opened even at 630 in the morning.

Receptionists are very helpful and readily assist in helping out whenever they can (directions, room service, places of interest, tours, taxis, etc)

Definitely a place to recommend :)

Stayed in this lovely hotel for 4 nights in October - staff very friendly and helpful; didn't have breakfast but delicious food from set price dinner menu and wine at an excellent price too, Room very clean and compact, lovely bed and no problems with any outside noise. I have three criticisms: 1. the complimentary bottle of water should be replaced daily. 2. there is only one mirror in the room and it's in the bathroom...! so a little tricky when wanting to do hair/makeup when the other person is in the shower or on the loo - please another mirror near a power switch would be great. finally, we all want to be kind to the environment (as the little notice says regarding towels...) am happy to do so but it would help greatly if a towel rail was provided - we hung towels on the bathroom door and on open window in evenings to be dry for following morning, and then left damp on floor after morning shower - not ideal, so a rail or a couple of hooks required. Otherwise, fab hotel in fab city and love the outside bar.
