“This is the Coolest Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

Unless fancy expensive luxury is your thing, the Hotel Market is the place to stay in Barcelona. It's very reasonably prices, and has great character. It is in an old building, but the interior has been completely redone. All rooms are unique. I booked three of the least expensive rooms for 5 nights. It may be worth spending a little more to get a larger room, because the standard rooms are a bit small, but they are still very nice. From top to bottom the hotel is very clean and stylish. The bathrooms are great, even in the standard rooms. The rooms on the front can be a little noisy.

The best part of this hotel is its restaurant. I like to avoid tourist traps, and this is anything but. The restaurant has authentic food from the region, exquisitely prepared for a great price. The prices range from $10-20 for entrees and they are all fantastic! In addition, they offer a daily 3 course prix fixe menu - $15 for lunch and maybe $20-25 for dinner that includes a glass of wine! You have to make reservations daily because there is always a line out the door, and its all locals! Fantastic. A great wine selection to boot, ranging from $10-25 a bottle.

It's right by the historic Sant Antoni Market and about a 10-15 minute walk to Catalunya Square, just out of the touristy area but still within an easy commute of all the sites. I really couldn't have been happier with this hotel. I will stay here every time I come to Barcelona. It's just that good!

Room Tip: Rooms in the front tend to be noisier and consider upgrading from the standard if you want a bigger...

Just back from 3 nights at the Market Hotel. It was where I stayed last time I was in Barcelona and the first place I will look when I am there again. The hotel has great style, the bed was wonderfully comfortable (and absolutely huge), the room was quiet and just the right temperature. Our only regret was that we couldn't use the small outside balcony as it was February. The hotel is also very handy for the Metro, several bus routes and the Aerobus service (about 4 minutes walk from the Gran Via stop). You might the walk through El Raval to La Ramblas a bit moody, but although it's a pretty dingy area I can't say we felt at all threatened because there was always so much life going on around us. This is the place Ii tell my friends to check out if they are going to Barcelona; you should too.

Room Tip: Our room was 107 - small balcony, no bath-tub but a wonderful drencher shower.

We recently stayed at The Market Hotel and found it to be absolutely wonderful. The hotel was clean and beautiful, the rooms were very spacious, the food at the restaurant was simply delicious, and it is located in a great, safe, location in walking distance of just about everything. But more importantly to me at least, the staff made us feel like family. We had a horrible trip over to Spain, including the airline losing our luggage. We then had additional trouble at the airport, when they insisted that upon them locating our luggage, we would have to return to the airport to pick it up. Marta at the front desk contacted the airline and had the luggage delivered that night. Ricardo was also incredibly helpful, since we continually lost our map of the city. Every morning he would give us a new map and show us where to go. He had great recommendations. Mid-stay we flew to Granada and the hotel was kind enough to keep our extra luggage, until our return three days later. If I ever get back to Spain, I will definitely stay at The Market Hotel. I can't recommend it enough!!

We recently spent 4 days in this lovely hotel with accommodating, friendly staff, bright, front room. Front desk was very helpful in trying to book several venues. Convenient to mass transit, safe area. Hotel restaurant had great atmosphere and food was excellent. I highly recommend this attractive property. Loved the market around the corner from the hotel.

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.
