This is a trendy boutique hotel not far from the University District in Barcelona. At check-in, the staff didn't seem very friendly, but everyone else we dealt with after that was very nice. The decor is very trendy. The rooms made good use of somewhat limited space, and seemed to have been recently renovated. Seemingly good food options right in the hotel, but we didn't eat there. A Metro stop is about 2-3 blocks away. One word of warning: Don't stay here for the view! It's a very small, low-slung hotel, and our window merely gave us a view of another building across an alley.
Overall, we were quite pleased and would stay here again.

This hotel is a must if you're staying in Barcelona!
Even though it was the end of the season (Oct), the staff were friendly and informative (even though there were some very rude & surly residents who practically ignored them). The location is ideal for exploring the city. We preferred the 'quieter' suburb to the mania that surrounds La Rambla. We enjoyed a bottle of Cava on the rooftop terrace & this is where you can escape to relax after a busy day sightseeing. It was shaded from 5pm but still warm.
The El Born area around the hotel is great for evenings out. Restaurants are good (with outdoor seating) so no need to travel into central city for food.
Thank you to K&K Picasso for our wonderful stay. You deserve your high rating because your consistently high standards are few & far between.

We stayed here instead of in the old town centre as we wanted large luxury hotel room, its about 13 euro by taxi, there is a rank right outside the hotel. Also, the metro is just across the street if you want public transport which is great value in Barcelona. Whilst its in the business area next to the exhibition halls, the location ensures you get a quiet and good nights sleep instead of the noise from a city centre location.
There is also a large shopping mall about 400m walk away with at least 100 outlets including many well known brands; Footlocker, Zara, Nike etc and a few eateries too, mostly fast food types. Try the 15 screen multiplex cinema there too if your Spanish is up to it.
We liked the whole feel of this place, the gym is a typical hotel style, smallish and I missed not having a pool.
If you want to relax in style in a modern hotel but still have the old city options within 15min drive away, then look at this hotel. It's also only 15mins from the airport too.

Really nice hotel with friendly staff and a stones throw from the beach. The room was perfectly cleaned each day. We were also allowed access to the computer to print tickets we had booked online. The pool was small but as the hotel doesn't have a huge amount of rooms it never felt over crowded. My only issue was that the beds were two singles put together but that was a small problem and didn't ruin the experience. It was nice to stay out of busy Barcelona and have the option to relax or get the train into the town centre to see the sites. We would stay here again.

we had a very comfortable 6 day stay in the Ayre Hotel which was partly for leisure and partly for business. The welcome which we received on arrival from the reception staff was very warm and this continued throughout our 6 day stay, with all of the staff being very friendly and helpful. The location at Plaza Espanya is very convenient for connections by bus, metro or taxi to all parts of the city.
