“Excellent hotel in the best possible location”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We travel and stay in 4 and 5 stars hotels all over the world because of our job so our standards are quite high. But this hotel hasn't disappointed us at all!
Hotel is located next to the Rambla but even though our rooms were facing the street it was absolute silence due to the double doors. Perfect size room, clean and with very comfortable beds. Breakfast was good value for money.
Staff was also very friendly and helpfull. No doubt that we will book this hotel again for our next trip to Barcelona!

This place is a quiet gem nestled into the busy Las Ramblas area of the old city. I am American and therefore have a different standard for hotels, but for a European city hotel I found this place to be great. The staff was always willing to help us and essentially be guides for directions and attractions. The rooms are better than the average European Hotel rooms, very clean with nice bathrooms and excellent air conditioning. We used the AC every night for the white noise and slept great without hearing the possible noise outside. I would pay the extra 10-15 Euro for the "deluxe" room to get a more airy feeling. I am a picky person and I would definitely come back to this place again if I needed to be in BCN.

This was my second stay at the Onix Liceo in Barcelona. I found the hotel through the internet for my first trip a few years ago and "took a chance" ... and was not disappointed. When I decided to go to Barcelona again recently I did not even have to think about where I would stay ... I will always stay at the Onix when in Barcelona.

The hotel is situated very conveniently for the Ramblas and old town areas, and yet is in a quiet location. The rooms are all well sound-proofed so that even though you are in the heart of the city it is quiet at all times.

All the rooms are similar. All very comfortable and modern. Not very big, but big enough. The wifi can be a bit dodgy in the rooms, but it is free and it is fast in the communal areas.

Essential information about the hotel is that there is no bar and no restaurant. There is a coffee machine downstairs that all the guests use. That's it for catering. However, this is not a problem at all ... a sensible decision on then management's part, I think, as the area is full of bars, restaurants and coffee shop so that nobody need walk for to get a good meal or a drink at any time.

Room was of very good size for Europe. Staff were very friendly and accommodating and made every effort to help us out. The complimentary fruit and water were great to pack along on a day of sightseeing. The internet computers were also very useful for planning trips or looking up information. Location was close to Las Ramblas but far enough away to be quiet in the evenings. The only down side was that there was no room safe just a safty deposit box at the front desk.

Nice staff, modern hotel, with a good location, a nice pool and very good breakfast. The room was quite and it was turned against the street - but no noise at all. Take the bus to the beach it is easy and take about 10 minuts. We used the Wi-Fi at the hotel.

The location is perfect.....just off the Ramblas half way between the port and Placa de Catalunya. We stayed here for 5 days last week and it was lovely. The breakfast buffet had something for everyone and was available from 7.30 til 11am. Each day it was easy to walk to the sights and grab lunch at the market or walk to Port Vell. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely use this hotel for another visit to Barcelona.

Stayed here with a friend mid Aug 13.

Location wise great. Literally off the Ramblas with its interesting combo of market stalls, friendly locals and dodgy beggars! But that's not the hotels fault!

Hotel was clean, and to a pretty decent standard considering the price we'd got it for (double for about £40pppn). Reasonable sized room. Comfortable bed. Air con. Mini bar. And decent bathroom with various soapy things.

We didn't spend too much time in the hotel as there were more pressing things to do like drink Estrella and eat tapas but it seemed fairly quiet and efficient.

Never managed to get up in time for breakfast so can't really comment on this, although the coffee machine was pretty good!

Only negative comments would be that walking back to the hotel alone in the early hours could be a bit unnerving with the aforementioned dodgy street people hanging about. But that's the case with most inner cities. And also the staff, although perfectly pleasant were not particularly friendly or welcoming. I don't think I actually got a smile once walking thought the front door.

I would stay again.
