In the middle of everything!

Posted May 8, 2017
Pros: The staff: courteous and accommodating. the location: the location was perfect! Steps away from popular restaurants, the metro, and surrounding attr
Cons: Some of the the amenities could use a little work. The gym was super tiny and so was the pool. Doesn't need to be Equinox but some more then a treadmi
Location: The location is perfect. Just about everything is within walking distance. La Ramblas, food, metro, attractions, nightlife...all of it is right there.
Overall, the experience was nice. Hotel and the room was clean which is very important to me.

Location wise it was great but the walls are thin

Posted Apr 27, 2017
Great location off La Ramblas but the walls are paper thin and you could hear EVERYTHING in rooms next door and also above. You could hear conversations, water flowing in the shower and basin, toilet flushing and doors that slam. No heating in April though it was cooler in the evenings and quite dated rooms and bathroom. Staff were all great and couldn't do enough. Unfortunately I wouldn't stay there again. So many hotels in the location.

Silken Ramblas- Barclona

Posted Mar 6, 2017
Pros: Its location. The cleaning staff and the restaurant staff. Good people - working hard.
Cons: Staff training. Reception and management. Service is all in the hotel industry.
Location: Where do I start? Everything! It's the greatest weekend city for the young, the old and families! I LOVE Barcelona for work and for family.
Upon arrival my family including two children under ten were not properly welcomed. All ver haphazard and uninterested. We took our room keys and went to our poorly lit but more surprisingly dirty room. The room had not been cleaned and all the remnants of the previous occupier were still there. It looked like the previous occupier had had quite a party! My wife went to complain while i got more annoyed. After ten years of business travel this is the first time I have ever been so badly let down. A cleaner arrived and asked if we would wait while they cleaned the room? No! I took the issue to the reception desk. My wife had been given a another room. There was no bed made up for the kids, but staff did come to do this but decided against leaving them any pillows!! The sofa bed was horribly uncomfortable, and the stay as a result far less than it should have been. The location of the hotel is great, but with relative little investment on infrastructure and considerable investment on staff training, this could be a great hotel. I would challenge the Silken group to put this situation right with me. I be they don't! This is the first time I have ever had cause to complain on line like this.

Dear Mr. Mills, We deeply apologize about the inconvenience you found during your ckecking in last March the 3rd. So sorry about providing you the 1st room as dirty, due to a mistake of us. Also apologize about the 2nd room didn't meet your expectations. We take note from your survey as an oportunity to improve our customer service day by day, so will seriously double check all the weak points you previously stated. We all hope to welcome you back next time you visit our loving Barcelona, so you can double check in person that the problem you found during your last stay was only a timely failure. Best wishes from all Silken Ramblas Team.

Great location

Posted Mar 6, 2017
Pros: Central location and easy to get to from the airport on the Autobus.
The hotel is in a very good location....close to underground and lots to do/see within walking distance. Plenty of bars and restaurants. One down side, we had a room which had an interconnecting door to another room. Unfortunately we had very noisy neighbours on the last night which keep us awake till 3am........and then some! I guess that's the luck of the draw, otherwise it was excellent.

Great hotel, loved our stay

Posted Feb 11, 2017
Pros: Location, comfortable rooms, great breakfast.
Cons: Air con that works!
Location: In the heart of La Rambla. A few mins walk from Placa de Catyluna, great for transport-Aerobus to & from airport and Hop on hop off bus tours. Perfect
We have just returned from a 4 night stay in Barcelona. The hotel was wonderful, perfect location, quiet, comfortable rooms…in fact the beds were so comfortable it was hard get out of them! The reception area was very welcoming and even smelt lovely! Staff were very friendly. We had breakfast included and it was excellent, every food you could wish for. The air con didn't seem to work too well in the rooms but in February that didn't seem to matter too much, and you could open the window wide for some fresh air. The shower was powerful and lots of hot water, possibly the best I've had in a hotel! Lots of lovely restaurants nearby for dinner, and just a few minutes walk from Placa de Catyluna-the hub of the city. Ignore the negative comments on here, for the price this is an excellent hotel for comfort, great breakfast and wonderful location. We were very happy with our stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. We loved it!

Dear Clare, I want to thank you so much for taking your time in sharing with us your valuable feedback, and also for your recommendations, of course!!! Your opinion is very important for us, and will help us to improve our weak points, and to enhance our most outstanding services! We are very happy to see you had such a great stay between us, specially enjoying our buffet breakfast, our nice staff's customer service, our comfy beds and, in general, the whole hotel premises. On the other hand, we apologize about not having the Air Conditioning System on, just because during your stay in February, only the Central Heating is on due to the cold temperatures of Winter Season. It would be a great pleasure for us welcoming you again nex time you visit Barcelona! Best wishes from Hotel Silkjen Ramblas Team.

Albergo confortevole e centralissimo

Posted May 11, 2017
Pros: La cortesia del personale, la localizzazione (vicina alla Rambla, ma in una stradina tranquilla), l'arredo della stanza (moderno ed elegante).
Cons: La pulizia del bagno (un po' opaco).
Location: Che dire? in pieno centro, vicino al terminale del bus dall'aeroporto, vicino alla metro. Molte attrazioni turistiche raggiungibili a piedi.
L'albergo è posto in una via laterale a pochi passi dalla famosa Rambla e dal barrio gotico. La stanza era molto confortevole, ampia e dotata di un bel bagno. L'affaccio era su un cortile interno, quindi la stanza era molto silenziosa. Unico appunto, il bagno era pulito ma avrebbero potuto fare di meglio. Colazione abbondante ma prezzo eccessivo (19 euro). Ho scoperto in loco che c'è la possibilità di optare per una colazione "stile italiano" ad un prezzo molto inferiore (5 euro). Possibilità interessante per molti.
