Great hotel on the Rambla

I have visited Barcelona a couple of times. I have never really had a bad hotel experience. This hotel is one of the best I have stayed in. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The Rambla is right around the corner and beach access is minutes away. Overall, I had a great experience because of the hotel and its location in the city.

Do not eat in restaurants located on the Rambla. Look for a good meal outside the tourist zone and you will definitely enjoy the local food.

La Ramblas Barcelona

This hotel is the PERFECT location to stay in if you are coming off a cruise; it is literally a 5min drive from the cruise port. There are numerous bus stops, tour bus stops (hop on/hop off), and a train station within a 2min walk. Their breakfast is simple, but homemade, and the old VW beetle is too cute to miss in the lobby. Wifi is free, but not very strong, and the beds are pretty low down to the floor, but comfy.

a few days away with my daughter

Loved the location of this place - it's just off the bottom of Las Ramblas, there's metro station right nearby, plus really easy to explore on foot. The hotel had all we needed; cute balcony, beds were really comfy, bathroom small but good, and all kept really clean. Only gripe was the hard floor surface made the room a little noisy sometimes, but I turned the fridge off at night, which helped a lot. We treated ourselves to the buffet breakfast one morning, which was delicious, loads of choice. Nice hotel, I'd definitely go back!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

We ended up at one of those outdoor restaurants on the Las Ramblas on the first night; hated the hard selling, aggressive waiters, and the value of the advertised 'meal deal' was entirely wiped out by the extortionate cost of the drinks. Didn't make that mistake again.

VERY BASIC

When I say this place is basic, I mean it is BASIC. Yes, there's a kitchenette. But I didn't come to Barcelona to cook. We had two "twin" sized beds. Nope, they were borderline cots. The TV was tiny and black and white. The bathroom was clean and spacious. I do want to say this place is very clean! I can still smell the bleach. The first night, the room was so stuffy. So we opened the sliding door to the balcony. At 4 am, the street below comes to life. Doors were banging. Motorcycles were vrooming. And we had to fight the lone mosquito that was buzzing in our ears. It was not restful. But the next night, we got the AC running and the noise and bug issues were greatly reduced. We also had a hard time finding this hotel. There's no sign with the words Gutenberg Aparthotel. The hotel is called Chic and Basic- Las Ramblas now. We walked around for awhile before realizing the name change. It looks like they might be doing changes or renovations. Because the lobby and bar area were MUCH nicer than our room. And we had to go to the back stairs to get to our rooms. Other guests went up the front elevators. They looked a lot happier than we were. Great location. Right around the corner from Las Ramblas. But I'd check out the Chic and Basic side instead of the Gutenberg Aparthotel side. In the end, it was fine. It was clean.The staff was helpful and friendly. But it definitely wasn't as nice as other places for the price.

Loved chic & basic

Great location super friendly & helpful staff. Metro & La Rambla are right outside your door. Good buffet breakfast and tapas bar. It was cold and rainy but heating system worked great.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Make use of the Touristic Bus to get to get around Barcelona. Saves time and you can decide what to do the following day if you don see all the major sights. Just be sure to check the color of the bus, blue, red, etc. or you may have to walk back to a stop.
