Great location but super small room

I stayed there for one night in a business trip. Arrived the hotel before the check-in time and they had the courtesy of looking for a room dat was ready so I could drop my things and change my clothes, to get ready for my meeting. The room was a way too small and a bit noisy for two reasons, noisy neighbors and I was next to the elevator, so I could hear it every time it came up. As they gave me the room before the check-in time under my circumstances I cant say if all the rooms are so small or noisy. Great location.

overpriced for what you get

it's on the low end on 4-star hotels. while it looks nice on the surface, it has multiple issues, like poor ventilation when smoke from smoking floor gets in your room and moist bathroom air get's stale, faucet leak was ignored, though it was reported twice, bulbs not changed...

Best Location, Better Hotel but Worst Room

Eurostars was our first 4 star hotel experience in Spain. It's location is prime and the lobby and adjoining restaurant/bar is decent. The location is just minutes walk from shopping, great tapas, bars and the beach. Having just left France we expected extra space, better amenities and a room with a view. Our room was approximately four feet away from another building. When we opened our single window we faced a wall adjacent to a neighbors window. During the day this room got no light. We had to use all lighting in the room to manage. The room also had this industrial smell coming from this aged wall directly in view. We also had one outlet in the entire room. Yet two outlets in the bathroom blocked by a vanity mirror and a blowdryer. The room was not cleaned properly before and during our stay. There was a flat sheet covering the mattress and one light pillow on each side of the bed. Two days in we discovered a la carte pillows through info cards in the room. We also read about the Gymnasium (non existent) and the Business Center (a "Business Corner") one computer on a pedestal in the corner which never worked. Reception had me send documents via email to them to print. Front Desk and Housekeeping were pleasant and at least acknowledged things and helped. In essence, the four star rating is a little much for a room like we had. After walking past other Barcelona hotels 4 and 5 stars Eurostars doesn't add up. Also, the other two Barcelona Eurostars looked terrible from the exteriors - one was extremely small with no windows and the other was on a busy corner with windows on one side only. If you plan to stay out of the room this is the best choice for price per se. However, if you would like to utilize amenities and stay indoors Eurostars Diputcio is not it.

Raise Your Game Cristal, Otherwise Risk Loosing Business!

Overall poor! I can't understand why this hotel is rated a four star one? I know we were there on a holiday weekend in Barcelona, but that should not mean the hotel should also be on holiday; no room service, no bar/lounge service, only one person on recpetion. Rooms were basic, absolutely minimum toileteries and no coffee/tea making facilities. Then to cap this all, when I complained, they said Spain is going through a tough time so we all have to sacrifice - I'm sorry this approach will only cost this hotel more, i.e. loss of custom!

Weekend in Barcelona

We spent a weekend away in Barcelona and wanted a nice hotel in a good location. The location was very good with being pretty much right on Las Ramblas, but we did not suffer the noise because we were a bit further up the strip. The rooms were very clean, but very small and the view was simply of the building next door, which was about 3 feet away. The breakfast was wonderful and included. My biggest complaint was that the staff was not very friendly or helpful. I asked for recommendations for restaurants and help in getting around and I was given a map with the location of the hotel and they were not able to give me any recommendations except to go out to Las Ramblas and walk down. Overall, it was a fine place to stay for a weekend but I just thought we'd get a bit more for the price we paid, although it may have been due to the location. We felt very safe, it was easy to get around from this location, so I would recommend the hotel.

Perfect location

Well situated in a quiet neighborhood. Staff are friendly and speak enough English to assist English speaking travelers. Easy to walk to major Barcelona attractions and metro stops. Lots of restaurants in surrounding blocks. Great shopping nearby. Rooms are quite small, but comfortable and the bathroom is a nice size. Jetted tub a nice plus. Not sure how this compares to other hotels in the area as this was our first trip to Barcelona, but would stay here again and recommend.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk to Barri Gotic, La Rambla, and Waterfront neighborhoods. These can easily be toured in 1 day. Purchase a T10 card to use the metro to get around to other areas. Only 9 euros, and entitles you to 10 rides, plus free transfers to the bus as necessary if within 1hr..

Skip this one

Other than the location and free parking, not much going for this hotel. AC was preset and not very useful, and you need AC in Barcelona in august. Staff was not very friendly and walls in room were dirty. But if all you want is the right location, this may be your spot. Two blocks from central plaza. Of note, although a little pricey, the double-decker bus tour of the city is worth the price. You can get on and off anywhere and runs till 9. Great way to see the city.
