Good value for the moneyPosted Jun 11, 2013
We stayed here for one night prior to departing for a cruise from Barcelona. The hotel offers good value for the money. The room was large (for Europe) and was very clean with high-end amenities. This is one of the few hotels in Barcelona that can easily accommodate more than two guests in a room (albeit with an extra guest charge). The hotel is not near the historic district, but it's only a few blocks from the metro station and in a clean, safe part of town. We didn't eat at the restaurant, but the options looked good at a reasonable cost. There were numerous restaurants nearby. If you are staying for a cruise, you may want to stay closer to the ports unless you are comfortable using the metro or taxi (both very easy).

This is the third time we have stayed here. A big improvement is the 24 hour wifi. This time we came from Sants Train station and it was 15 minute walk so very convenient. A big bonus is the friendliness and helpfulness of the hotel staff. Also had the buffet breakfast which was nice food and plenty of it. This is a good place if you want peace and quiet but still with walking distance access to Gracia, La Rambla, Raval etc

friendlyPosted Feb 6, 2012 on Hotels.com
The staff are very pleasing! Tips: If u come with a car ull need to pay 18Euro for 24hours. We found parking on the streets. just remember its hard to find parking on the street. We booked a regular room for two. they will try to offer you an upgrade for an additional cost. I took the upgrade and it was much nicer then the original room. thats up to you! right next to the hotel is 2 or 3 strip clubs. Take that as it may. rooms are clean , staff is friendly. Cant say anything negative about this hotel!

a real treatPosted Nov 25, 2011
Really enjoyed our stay in Barcelona, and this hotel was a major factor in that. This was a business trip for me and leisure for my partner, so the location was ideal for our needs, although some may find it a little far away from the centre of town. The room we got was tremendous, rather more individual in its design and furnishing than the standard chain hotels, and a super bathroom. everything spotlessly clean. Staff friendly and helpful.

I was pleasantly surprise. The rooms were clean, spacious and corporate like. It is a bit noisy when your neighbours enter or exit their rooms but not to disturbing. The remote contol for the TV in the living room did not work on arrival. Overall I can recommend the Gran Derby. Good value for money. Francois Ferreira

Gran Derby - hotel chicPosted Aug 28, 2010 on Hotels.com
Stunning hotel, very chic and beautifully fitted out. Was upgraded to a suite which was stunning. Beautiful bathroom too with great products and soft towels - luxury ! Did not want to move out. Staff were extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with 10/10. Free wifi in rooms which was brilliant for my son! Location - depends what you want - but BCA is not that big and the transport is very good so getting around from here is fine - tram and buses close by - very convenient. Close to the gaudi sites but away from the bustle of the gothic /ramblas area. Would stay here again. Moved to another hotel (due to bad-planning) nearer las ramblas which was twice as expensive for extras ie breakfast and wifi etc..

Gran DerbyPosted Jul 21, 2010
Definitely not a four star hotel (maybe a 3 star), however, the service is friendly and helpful, the room was clean and well maintained. There are many different patisseries/eateries in the surrounding neighborhoods. Admittedly, the hotel was not at all close to the city center and about a 10 min. walk to the train station, but despite all of this, I thought the location was great and easy to navigate, and the neighborhood is safe.
