Great dealPosted Oct 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
Modest, but very clean room. Bathroom was excellent and the little balcony was a plus. Great location, near subway, shops, and cafes. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you're looking for an affordable place to stay.

Overnight Stay at Hotel TaberPosted Oct 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
If ever I should need to stay in Barcelona again, I will try to stay at the Hotel Taber. The staff was very helpful and cooperative to my needs, namely, early check-in from a cruise that ended in Barcelona, and early check-out to catch a plane home very early the next morning. There was a security man on duty when I arrived early in the morning and he watched over a secure store room where I was able to leave my luggage until I came back from a day's worth of site seeing to formally check in. Although the room was small, it was very clean and everything worked just fine, so it was more than adequate for my needs. The location was excellent and instead of a taxi to the airport I was able to take the half-hour train ride there for a small fraction of the expected taxi fare. I could walk to many sites and the neighborhood seemed safe by all indications. Definitely one of the best European, big-city hotel choices I've made in many years.

NoisyPosted May 18, 2013
Cons: Noise from road
Location: Good central location, few minutes walk from main tourist/shopping streets and main train station.
The receptionist who booked me in was pretty grumpy. Worst problem was the noise, though. It's on a busy road with very loud motorbikes going past all through the night. The balcony door didn't close properly so didn't keep the noise out at all. I'm pretty used to noisy hotel rooms and always take earplugs with me, but even with earplugs in, I got very little sleep - the noisiest hotel room I think I've ever been in. €17 for the breakfast buffet is a bit steep, too, given the price range of the room itself.

A sequence of bad experiences...Posted Apr 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
When I first got there, I thought I was really fortunate to have chosen this hotel. Really well located, close to Passeig de Gracia, metro and bus stations... Little did I know that that was it. I made my check in. When I got into my room, it was dirty. And by that, I mean: sheets, towels, everything... simply untouched from when the last person left the room. SO GROSS. My second room was better. But, the moment I opened the door, the cigarrete odor killed me. Since I had no time to change for the 3rd time, I decided to stay there. I woke up several times during the night with that nasty smell. Breakfast buffet costs 16,00 euros!!! My margnet card for my room stopped working twice... you name it, I had it. If you want to be well located, fine. If not, DON'T STAY THERE!

I had a couple of nights to visit Barcelona and decided to book on this based on the location, which is great, easy access to subway, buses and even aerobus which will take you to the airport for about 6 Euros. Hotel is ok, near Plaza Catalunya one of the busiest turistic points in the city. European star rating in Spain feels below US star rating starndards. This hotel is classified as a 3 star hotel but I felt it similar to a Days Inn rather than a 3 star hotel like a Hilton Garden Inn or Courtyard Mariott if you know what I mean. I couldn't make WiFi calls because skype is blocked by their server. Another thing is that the A/C in the room didin't work, just the fan, but there is no thermostat to regulate room temperature. Fortunately it wasn't so hot but in summer this can be a deal breaker. The hotel is overall quiet but I did notice that housekeeping makes too much noise in the mornings between 7 and 9 AM which was bothersome for me. I am quite easygoing but I didn't appreciate their banging and door closings all morning. Beds are rather small and not very comfortable. Check out was easy and quick but clerks didn't ask if everything was ok. If they fix all these details this could be a great hotel to stay, but right now I would say it's just ok.

Awesome location!Posted Apr 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great location! On the corner of Rambla Catalunia, where there're plenty of eateries. Close to a couple tourist attractions. Front desk people were great! Breakfast is pricey. I just ate at a corner bakery. Their room service menu is very limited.

Great location for the pricesPosted Mar 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel was recommended by a friend who stayed there last year, and it was a super location, we could walk to all the major sites we wanted to see (Gaudi, shopping, Picasso Museum), and we could take the metro too. The hotel is older, and not in the old charming way, but in the "hasn't been remodeled or renovated in a while" way. But it was quiet, clean, very spacious, and very affordable. There was a lot of great shopping and eating within blocks. Great if you just need a place to sleep, put your stuff, and shower.
