City escape

Posted Nov 29, 2017
Booked a stay at hotel Barbara as really central and a cheap deal. Because of that, didn't expect a 5 star room, we were realistic. Our room was basic, but it served its purpose. Very clean - shout out to your cleaners!! Comfy bed and really close to the sites. A few noisy and inconsiderate fellow guests but that's not the hotels problem, just take earplugs with you. We didn't use the kitchen/breakfast option so can't comment on that. But over all we had a pleasant stay and if looking for a cheap city break, I'd check out hotel Barbara

Bad hotel in a bad area

Posted Sep 28, 2017
The hotel is located in a crappy area and the rooms are poorly furnished . There is not enough space to put your belongings and clothes . There air conditioning is bad and there is no iron, coffee maker, fridge and microwave. The staff does not care about the guest comfort .

Fab hotel just be careful down some of the streets

Posted Sep 16, 2017 on Hotels
I can't fault the hotel, staff were polite and friendly, view from our room wasn't great but at the end of the day I was there to see the city not stay in the hotel. Bed was comfy. Just be careful not to stay off the main streets as I sadly like many people did get my mobile pick pocketed (this in no way is a reflection on the hotel though).

Good morning dear costumer, First of all, thanks for staying with us. We appreciate your feedback! We’re sorry had a bad experience with the city... The location is one of our best points, just turn one street from Las Ramblas and you are here! Like all big cities, it can be noisy, we are in the City Center, but the Hotel is safe and monitored (also 24 hours Reception). Best regards and we hope to see you again soon with us; Anna, Front Desk Manager

There was no hair dryer at room. It was one at receptionist for everybody to share! It was no internet at room & we had to come to main floor, if we needed. Staff were nice & helpful. Location was good.

Great value

Posted May 10, 2017 on Hotels
Very good location. Handy for metro and walking to La Rambla area and also Barri Gotic. Palau Guell is just round the corner. Stayed here for 6 nights and loved El Raval area.It is not over run with tourists and we found some very decent bars and restaurants within easy walking distance particularly in Rambla de Raval and C de l'Hospital. We thought this hotel was great value for money.
