3 day stay after trans-atlantic cruise

Paid top dollar for room with a balcony. Perfect location. Staff does not speak much English which is a problem. The breakfast buffet might be good if you get there when it opens, but could not eat the cold scrambled eggs stuck to the container. Also had a problem with the lights in the room--all 3 days. Had to call the front desk (the entire floor was without electric) but on the third day after they turned it back on, a staff member came to the room and blamed us for turning the wrong switch. (Could not have turned off the entire floor with that switch).

Very Close to Many Attractions

The hotel is very conveniently located in the center of many attractions. 5 min. walking distance to La Rambla, Palace of Catalunya and Tour Bus Stop, 3 min. to Casa Batllo, 4 min. to Casa Mila, 1 min to Metro, If prefer to walk more, 20 min. to Sagrada Familia. You can't ask more than that. The hotel itself is old but has style. Very elegant looking in lobby. Internet is free for 30 min. Friendly service.

Great hotel Great location

The Avienda is a lovely hotel in a fantastic location. We ate breakfast there on two of the mornings and it couldn't be faulted. This was our first time in Barcelona but definitely won't be our last. There is a great little bar right beside the hotel called Obamas live music and great cocktails. The hotel is quiet and would probably benefit from having a bar/music but that may not suit everyone. We stayed on the first floor but would ask for a room on a higher floor as it was a little noisy. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

would definitely stay here again!

Had a wonderful 3 night stay here. Location is excellent.....train stop from airport right outside main door passaige de gracia, exit catalunya plaza. Costs 4.50 euros and takes about 30 mins. Otherwise bus stop 1 block away or taxi 40 euros. Remember when booking room though that you might hear metro at night rumbling. I would book higher room ,it's 9 floors, facing the street or ear plugs if light sleeper. Lovely roof top pool and sitting area with small refreshment bar. Coffee, cava and view excellent! Great breakfast buffet, would definitely recommend as is open until 11am. We had junior suite which had 2 rooms with sofa sleeper in one with tv, and the other 2 single beds pushed together with their own bedding. Large bright bathroom. Found staff to be pleasant and helpful.

Avenida Palace - the place to stay!

Great location - working distance to Gaudi buildings, Old Town (Barri Botic), and the most famous street in Spain - Les Ramblas. Subway (metro) is across the street.

FARGA on Rambla De Catalunya - very good breakfast, an early dinner (it's not easy to find a restaurant in Barcelona that serves dinner before 8:30, but FARGA does - and very good dinner!).

wonderful hotel!

The hotel is set in a perfect position close to many amenities. It is beautiful inside and has a real grandeur feel about it. The staff were helpful and polite. The breakfasts were a real treat. I would thoroughly recommend it to my friends and family. We had a lovely stay there and would go back again any time!

Fabulous experience

From the minute we arrived to the minute we left everything was perfect. All of the staff were friendly, professional and very helpful particularly those covering service at breakfast. We had adjoining rooms both of which were spotlessly clean and comfortable. We were on the 3rd floor which was very quiet. View to the back of the hotel nothing to write home about but not unpleasant. Couldn't fault the location as very central with a metro station just across the road and a 5 minute walk to the airport bus stop and less than a 10 minute walk to las ramblas. Come out of the hotel and turn right and at the end of the street there is the most fantastic tapas bar Ciudad Condal which is definitely worth a visit. Excellent choice of food and drink and very reasonably priced. All in all an excellent experience!

Great Barcelona break

Just came back from 3 days in Barcelona - hotel and staff were great! Roof top pool was a great treat and we even managed a quick dip at 9.30pm at night in February! Location was perfect - walking distance to all the great places, Las Ramblas, gothic quarter, El Born etc. Staff very friendly and helpful - can't wait to go back!
