No Heat, No SleepPosted Dec 29, 2010
Great tourist location. Walls are very thin. I could even hear the person next door zipping their luggage. The television was not working. They replaced it right away. When ready for bed, i discovered the thermostat was broken, so not heat. I reported it to front desk. They sent someone up pronto. he looked at the thermostat and said it was broken. His reposne was that he would be right back. When he returned, I opened the door. He handed me a blanket, said good night and then walked away. I was appauled that they didnt even offer me a different room with the some. i will never stay at this hotel again. I usually read reviews and conclude that bad experiences happen and are rare, but i should have heeded the warnings of the reviews I read about Grupotel.

Definitely recommendedPosted Dec 22, 2010
The hotel and the room was very clean, although the room was slightly dated. The hotel is ideally situated near to the bus and metro stops-both easy to use methods of travel. It is also a short walking distance to the main shopping centre where everything is happening. Although the room looked out onto a busy road there was a nice view with minimal noise.

grupohotel gravinaPosted Dec 8, 2010
the hotel was very modern and the location central to everything. the room was clean and comfortable and the staff was helpful and friendly. also, the breakfast buffet (included in the price) was very good). the only negative was that the room was not very quiet--the walls seemed thin. this was only and issue, however, because we were traveling with our 2year old and so were sleeping probably earlier than many others in the hotel.

5 Star Quality & Service for a 3 Star Price.Posted Oct 25, 2010
Excellant 3 Star Hotel within easy access to Ramblas and Place Catalunya. Very friendly and helpfull reception, rooms very clean and comfortable, although beds hard, buffet breakfast excellant with very good choice. Very good value for money. Take the airbus from Barcelona Airport to Place Catalunya (€5) and less than 10min easy walk to hotel. We found area to be safe. Stayed for 2 nights but wish we had more time to explore all sites - Gaudi buildings are a must!!

Disappointed but not enough to movePosted Sep 11, 2010 on Hotels.com
Room was very small and was a smoking room which the booking did not stipulate. Very basic/below average room. Location was very good.

Marvelous breakPosted Sep 10, 2010
Marvelous break in Barcelona. What a great city, elegant, lively and really good bars and restaurants. The hotel was lovely, spotlessly clean, and the staff were very friendly. The bedroom was very small, but hey who cares. The breakfast was good and plentiful, and the welcome glass of cava on a very hot arrival day went down very well. A 5-minute stroll from Placa de Catalunya and the Cafe Zurich. Would stay here again.

Small room, great locationPosted Aug 17, 2010 on Hotels.com
If staying just for a night, book this hotel. Location is perfect, few steps away you'll find Las Ramblas. The room and part of the hotel I thought it wasn't at its best of cleanliness, I found q-tips next to my bed from someone before our stay. The room for 3 is very small, unless you're traveling very light, otherwise it's difficult to walk around. Breakfast is great, it has everything. When we arrived, they didn't have our room ready and we waited at the lobby with a cup of Cava (local sparkling wine) and we could use the computer/free internet. The staff were very friendly and ready to help you.

Perfect Balance of Being Close to it all and a Quiet Escape from La RamblaPosted Aug 4, 2010
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The hotel is classy, located just a minute's walk from La Rambla and nearby metro stations, yet located on a quiet street that is centrally located. The front desk staff are attentive to your needs and provide quality recommendations and assistance in navigating the city. Would certainly recommend this place. The room is nice and clean, though nothing utterly spectacular. But it is more than sufficient to meet any traveler's needs/wants comfortably. The only thing that I would recommend is that they put in softer beds. Oh, and it would be nice to have an in-room safe, which I'm pretty sure we didn't have here. Otherwise, no complaints.

Excellently located hotelPosted Jul 27, 2010
The hotel is very nice with decent sized rooms which was fully air conditioned and comfortable for sleeping. The buffet breakfast is the best idea as plenty of choice to gain a full tummy before all the exploring. The hotel is located perfectly! Just 5 mins from La Rambla but away from the hustle and bustle on a side street. On the main road to the left only 5 mins away was an amazing tapas restaurant! Excellent food, modern restaurant and great value, definitely worth a trip
