Good service but terrible rooms.Posted Aug 10, 2014
Pros: The service was pretty good. The staff is very helpful and switched our rooms upon request. However, the A/C problem did not change.
Cons: The A/C system. The room size.
Location: Things were walkable, the train station and La Ramblas. The main party area was also just a 10 min cab ride away.
The room was terribly small. I was there with a friend and there wasn't space to even open our suitcases. I was their guest for 6 days 5 nights and did not have a comfortable stay. The room just had enough space for the queen size bed. The bathroom was fine, rather spacious. However the worst had to be the Air Conditioning. Apparently it is central A/C which means that the temperature is fixed and can't be increased or decreased. The entire time we stayed the temperature did not go below 24.5 degrees celsius. The room was impossibly warm to stay in in the day time.

Lovely clean and well located hotelPosted Aug 10, 2014
We had a lovely 5 day stay in this hotel recently. Very well located just a few streets to Las Ramblas and close to the Metro and bus routes. Not very close to the beach however - it's easy to get to the beach just a few stops on the Metro. The hotel itself is clean with friendly staff and modern surroundings. Our double room was small but perfect for all we needed. I would highly recommend this hotel to any one looking for a central location for a city break in this beautiful city.

Nice hotel but room comfort below parPosted Apr 5, 2014
Pros: The hotel is conveniently located, walking distance to many attractions and restaurants. Lobby level bar with coffee, drinks and congenial atmosphere.
This hotel was a mix of good and not so good but the size and lack of comfort in the room overshadowed the good parts. The room and the bathroom were the same size and the only light came from a dark light well. Bare wood floors, no heat, closet with no handles, safe with a key (instead of digital controls), no shelf for toiletries in the bathroom, no conditioner, cream, etc. While some of these defects could be fixed relatively easily, room size is simply inadequate even by European standards. In the elevator, there is a posted sign offering a room upgrade which is indicative of the fact that many guests have the same reaction to room size as I had, and opt to pay the higher amount once they see the room. Public areas of the hotel were pleasant if not very inspired looking. Breakfast was standard and adequate. Service was friendly and helpful. Overall this hotel offers a nice stay but only if you book one of the bigger rooms. Otherwise I would not recommend it.

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!!
