Staff needs to be more helpful and polite

The room and breakfast were fine. Not so the staff, not helpful at all, on the contrary it seems that they were bothered if any question was asked.

Family vacation in spain

I would not recommend this hotel for the following reasons: 1-the hotel could not provide us with a crib for the baby on the arrival day at 9pm because the person at the reception said that he works alone and can't leave hos desk 2-the rooms are dirty 3-the bathrooms have no aeration system. You smell the sewage all the time 4-you hear the metro all night and day so we were not able to sleep well 5-the hotel is in a poor location. All nice places are at least 40 min walking distance away 6- we had booked 3 rooms. My sister got a room with no windows!!!! It looked more lile a storage room.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Try to avoid taking taxis driven by non spanish drivers. They tend to take the longer distance to charge you more. If you are suspicious about anything, ask for a ticket ( printed one) that will have all information so you can show it to police if the taxi driver cjarged more than what he is supposed to.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

hop on, hop off- but takes a while (2 hours ) to get around the city. Sagrada Familia really is fantastic inside- but I lost my wallet there while I was entranced with the sights. leave everything at home except the basics- and keep those in a money belt!

Hotel was as expected and catered adequately for our basic needs. However, the air conditioning didn't seem to be working so was very hot in the room. Otherwise it was nice and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Romantic getaway to Barcalona

We were really pleased with this hotel, it was in a great location and just five minutes walk from the Metro. The room was clean, comfortable and pretty quiet despite the busy street. We would come back again..

Poor value for money

Ordinary/basic 3 star hotel. Some staff pleasant others just indifferent. Hotel near metro. Infact it runs alon street outside hotel. Not too bad but probably best if you ask for room NOT fronting main road if you go there. Had to phone reception around midnight due to noisey guests on floor. Nothing done! Same again at 1.25 am. again nothing done. Would not go again.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Barnabier restaurant on marina. The tapas menu at 15.95 euros was excellent and value for money. 10 other diners in group all said their food was equally good.

Cant go wrong for the money

Great experience, short distance to las rambalas, if you 'd rather not pay taxi fees then this is in a decent distance of las rambalas roughly about 15 mins once you know your way around.

urban comfort

Urban chique and comfort in good location. Staff professional and mostly helpful. Half a block from the metro. Las ramblas a few blocks. In-room safe much appreciated considering Barcelona's legendary pick pockets (we just walked around with cash for the day). Many places to eat and drink nearby, frequented by the locals. We'll use this hotel again.

Location, location, location

Gran Ronda: great location. Nestled between the Old Town and Barcelona city. Walking to almost every site is possible for physically able. Metro stations are close by and the Airpot Bus stops just a few minutes away from hotel. PLUS: location, staff, cleaning NEGATIVE: breakfast, hotel facilities-cafe Air conditioning did not work (staff told us we should have informed them). On departure we forgot 2 small (T-shirt etc.) items of clothing, hotel would only return these by currier (70 Euro) which was not reasonable - they could have send them by regular mail for a few Euro. Overall: good basic hotel in excellent location
