great value

Myself and my boyfriend (couple both aged 24 yrs old) stayed in Barcelona Center Hotel from 4th-7th August at a good price. Room was clean, room was airconditioned, bed a little uncomfortable but not a big issue, room was nice, a little on the small side with a view of a wall, but then again i didn't go to Barcelona to stare out of a hotel window :) No tea or coffee making facilities but nowhere in spain does. Staff were very helpful, provided an iron when i asked for one and sent it to my room within 10mins. Food in restaurant is lovely but small portions - nice atmosphere. Rooftop terrace bar is beautiful to sit out on in the evenings, beer is reasonably priced in the hotel but liqours and spirits and cocktails are very pricey. Hotel was a great location as it was only a lovely 15 min walk to Las Ramblas. Lovely hotel and good value for money, i would definitely return.

Great Price for a Great Location

This hotel covers the basics and delivers a tad more. I wont say it is the most luxurious hotel ive ever stayed in, but for the location and the value I dont think can ask for anything better.

Fantastic location

The hotel was good and in a great location, metro stops nearby, walking distance to many of the tourist attractions. Staff helpful and room clean and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel for all the reasons above.

Poor guest services

I'd mistakenly booked this room twice for the same night and despite my staying in the hotel (and planning to do so a week later on the date I had intended to reserve) they would provide me not a single concession. They had ample opportunity to rent my second room out and elected not to trouble with it. Decent enough accommodations, if not on the small side and with terribly hard beds, but their complete unwillingness to compromise earns them a single star.

Great location and wonderful facilities

This is a great modern hotel with some lovely features. Location wise, it's just a short walk from Plaza Catalunya and near the posh shopping area of Passeig de Gracia. It's a shame it doesn't have a pool but the two jacuzzis are fantastic and do the trick. Ask for a room with outside view as there are some rooms looking inwards and do not get affected by how the hotel looks on the outside: it's a bit dull but inside is much nicer!

Great Location/Helpful Staff

Very clean and centrally located. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Be sure to ask for an "outside" room so you will have a window. Our room got rather warm without the window open - they do not have air conditioning at the time of year we visited.
