Good value for the money

Posted 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

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 treat

Posted 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 chic

Posted 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 Derby

Posted 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.
