Nice hotel and excellent location

Posted Feb 11, 2017
Lovely hotel and will be I am sure when renovations complete. It was disappointing that the whole of the ground floor was closed off for renovation but didn't effect our holiday and feel for the price I paid was probably reflective of the current condition.

Great location but under renovations

Posted Feb 7, 2017
We really loved mostly everything about this hotel, location was excellent the room was spacious, bathroom was very modern. The lobby was closed , being renovated and it's going to be spectacular when done however this was a major issue elevator wise as my daughter has a broken leg. Staff were accommodating but for anyone with an accessibility issue this hotel is not ideal until the lobby is completed.

A nice 2 1/2 star hotel.

Posted Feb 7, 2017
Pros : Great staff, room was spotless, reasonably quiet and great walking city location. Cons: Very little to no shower pressure. Took over a 30 min to shower and im not big person. You dont have proper temperature control of your room. Thank god for cool nights and a window you can open =). Lobby has been and still is under construction. Nice overall but not close to a European 4 star. Honest 2 1/2.

Great location and informed staff! Carlos=Awesome!

Posted Feb 1, 2017
I went to Barcelona to celebrate my 50th Birthday. I selected Avenida Palace Hotel because it looked luxurious online. When I arrived the hotel was actually going through construction changes so it was a little noisey at times but overall it was a great experience. The staff was friendly and informed and the room was great and the price was reasonable.

Perfectly situated for city break to Barcelona

Posted Dec 21, 2016
Perfect location for touring Barcelona - the famous Ramblas less than five minutes walk away. Beautiful hotel and ticked all our boxes. Very clean and very helpful staff. We had an early flight so went straight to the hotel where they happily stowed our luggage safely for us while we went off to start exploring Barcelona. We had a fabulous short stay here and would definitely recommend the hotel.

Get Your Own Taxi

Posted Dec 18, 2016
I liked the hotel but when we checked out one of the hotel the employee at the front desk offered to get us a taxi. When it arrived the driver handed him something and then took us a very long route to the airport ( I know this as I had my data on and was looking at google maps). Then when we got to the airport he pressed a few buttons on his meter and the price suddenly rose €5... bottom line the hotel was nice but get your own taxi unless you like being ripped off.

Lovely hotel with a 100 year+ history

Posted Dec 9, 2016
Pros: Spacious rooms, lovely location, nice breakfast. The lunch in the hotel was very good too.
Cons: Free mineral water was only given on the first day. A bottle a day per person would be nice. The TV in the room did not work.
Location: Casa Batillo, La Pedrara, Las Ramblas street are all within walking distance.
Although the check in time was 4pm we were able to get into our room on arrival at 2pm which was really nice. The rooms very spacious and comfortable.
