Great location, good price.

Located on on of the main avenues leading to the harbor and in the middle of the Gothic neighborhood make it a great place from which to explore. We chose an inside room off of the street, and it was very quiet. Room had a safe. Very clean, but shower door did not keep water from getting the floor wet. A/C was great to have. Staff was courteous. Had breakfast one morning at their restaurant. Not much of a deal for €11- most of the fruit was from a can.

Don't eat at the restaurant next door. Walk around the corner to the Mercado Santa Catarina. Some good restaurants there, especially the one on the corner of the market closest to the hotel- Cuines Santa Catarina. Had a great lunch and dinner there.

Very pleased with our stay

We stayed 3 days in mid Sept. 2013, and we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was helpful - checked us right in with somewhat early arrival. Our room was in the back, so very quiet, and it was larger than we anticipated. The bathroom was also surprisingly large. And everything was exceptionally clean, which really pleased us. We didn't eat at the hotel - rather we found a very nice little place around the corner for breakfast and other nice places within easy walking distance. The hotel proved to be a perfect location for first-timers to Barcelona. We did lots of walking as well as used the hop-on, hop off bus. Definitely recommend it.

Good location, poor room

Came with my wife to enjoy a week end in Barcelona. Location very convenient close to the Cathedral, Plaza Catalunya (buses to BCN airport) and Barrio Gotico. Our room was very, very, very small... and the bed smaller! No bath, shower only. Blind windows. Unacceptable for a ****.

Central Barcelona stay

We had a lovely stay at hotel Almirante. We booked through a mobile app and received a great price! We had a top floor room with as huge terras and amazing views of the old town and Sagrada familia (I think we got an upgrade). Location of the hotel was perfect, just the room itself seemed a little dated, but that didn't matter at all.

Nice hotel in the Gothic quarters

This is a very nice hotel in the middle of the Gothic quarters, next to the one of the most beautiful cathedrals of Barcelona: The Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalie. Hotel is located in about 15 minutes’ walk distance from Ramblas area and 20 minutes from marina. Hotel does not provide any discount for the very expensive car parking in the area – that is why I put 4 stars for amenities.

Great Hotel, Great location, Great city

Nice modern lobby. Free Internet access. Two elevators. Great breakfast, plenty of choices, breads, cheese, eggs, ham, pastries, cereal choices were limited but plenty of yogurt and fruit, and complimentary Cava or red wine!! Rooms were clean, well maintained and large enough for two. We didn't notice interior noise and the windows were double pane on the street. The bath was fine with a tub/shower combination. The location is less than a block from the central Cathedral and the Tourist bus stop and only a third of a mile to the metro. We were very careful but never experienced any threats in this area and returned after 11pm several times.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Barcelona is a very large sprawling city. So relatively proximity to metro, city bus and tourist bus is the only way to get to the attractions and food. Buy a multi day pass and access to each is all within a third of a mile of this hotel. And while reports abound, this area was very safe and we never felt compromised at any time during our stay.
