Good hotel to use as a base to explore Barcelona

Posted Jan 7, 2017
Pros: The staff, the decor - very trendy and modern, it's location
Cons: In need of some TLC in places, looking a bit tired. Aircon could be more efficient.
Location: Already noted above - the hotel is ideally located for everything.
We enjoyed our stay at the Barcelo. The staff were very helpful and all spoke excellent English. The bathroom area was looking a little tired but apart from this our stay was very good. The hotel is within easy walking distance of many restaurants and bars and Barcelona an excellent city to walk round. We took the usual precautions with regard to pick pockets etc but we had no problems at all.

I stayed one night - I was moving out of an apartment and had a lot of luggage. The hotel staff was super friendly and helpful in every way. The hotel is gorgeous. There is a terrasse on the top floor with spectacular views. The hotel is also in a great location, close to la Rambla,I had a great time.

The hotel was very good,in a good position

Posted Dec 13, 2016
Pros: the quality of the hotel. Its location in Barcelona in city centre.
Cons: the rooms are very modern and minimalist. you need to be good friends/partners as the bathroom and toilet are open plan and are part of the room.
Location: very close to the Gothic area
we were able to walk less than 10 minutes to the main street where all the restaurants and shops are situated. we did take the tour bus for two days, but used it to get us to see all the sights. we then walked to places we wanted to visit. the Roman building remains under the Cathedral were special and well worth the visit.

not a 4* hotel

Posted Dec 5, 2016
Pros: reception decor, comfortable bed.
Cons: Staff attitude, customer service, cleanliness.
Location: Avoid this area, it's rough & dodgy.
Unfortunately not the greatest experience for a 4* hotel. The only receptionist we dealt with had been in BCN 5 months only & was unable to offer any help regarding the city, tickets, restaurants, sightseeing. The rest of staff indifferent at best & unwelcoming. Room found in so-so conditions, places weren't dusted in ages. On the second day, only the bed was made & some toiletries left. No swiping the floors, dust and hair everywhere. Pillowcases non changed. Bathrobes thrown carelessly, room not sorted, glasses not changed but only 'wiped' and still had my chapstick on them. We stay out a lot, so by the 3rd day after complaining to the receptionist they decided to 'clean' it. But it wasn't the attention to detail & standards you would expect from a 4* hotel. Cold & uninviting environment. The staff went on about their duties as if the guests didn't exist. Unpleasant experience. The toilets by the sauna always dirty. The receptionist offered us an 'upgrade' at check-in, a room same as superior we booked but a bigger bed & higher floor. But so noisy, can hear the other room. Hard to sleep. Hairdryer was old & dirty. Turned off after 10 seconds & wouldn't come on again. Had to leave the hotel in the middle of winter with wet hair & be unwell for the 3rd day of our trip. Albeit central, the area was rough & there were drug dealings going right outside the entrance. Couple of customers complained, someone stole their money, a security guard was placed in the lobby after that.
