Lovely hotel, convenient location.

The staff was fine. Not overly friendly. Everything else was very good.

Barcelona

Good location right next to Sants railway station and only 15 minute metro ride to Ramblas area. Rooms were excellent size. Breakfast expensive and you have to pay for using pool and fitness facilities. (6 euros). Other than that staff is friendly and a great and reasonably priced hotel.

A bit of a walk to attractions, but definitely manageable for those able to do it.

Good Hotel, convenient to Metro/trains

There's a lot to do in Barcelona and getting around by metro is key. The hotel is across the street which as very convenient. Staff spoke good english and had good recommendation on places to eat and day tours. [...], the bellhop, was very friendly and eager to help.We informed them that we were on our honeymoon and they were kind enough to send up a bottle of champagne.One negative comment, we did advance checkout the night before and paid the balance for charges to the room and an upgrade. However, when we were checking out the next morning, they informed us that we owed addition amount since we had an upgrade for the last night which was not added onto the bill. Our cab was waiting on us and charging while we finalized the bill. Very discouraging.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Take the wine & cava tour offered by Catalonia Tour. Very interesting. Take snacks or have a big breakfast. Also, if you decide to buy a wine, the wine at the first stop is a better buy. The cava tour is amazing but you need to be willing to take a lot of stairs.

Close to trains and city sights!

Friendly staff and very convenient to train station. Only a few short metro stops away from busy Ramblas. Great access to Montjuic and other sights!

Big Hotel Near Sants Station

The staff was very good to us. The room was clean and reasonably spacious. The location was not as god as we thought, never having been to Barcelona. Most of the interesting "tourist" stuff was a few miles away, but easily accessible by Metro, but it took stair-climbing and walking to get there. Also, we were surprised to find there was no pool. Breakfast was an "extra," not included in the room rate, although it was a fine buffet for about 13 Euros/person/day.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Guell park is a popular attraction, but it is weird. It was a long walk from the Metro, and even the tourist buses can't get too close because it is on the side of a hill. They charge for the "Monuments" area, which contains the Gaudi-designed stuff. But you have to buy your tickets well in advance -- we had a 2.5-hour wait. And you might think there are other things to see in the park, but there are no maps of the place, only one free bathroom with a 15-minute wait for women, and one little snack bar. Suggest you buy tickets on-line in advance and either bring a lunch or buy it at a restaurant outside the park.

A good value 'Business Hotel'

This hotel is ideally located for the business district and is within walking distance of the Fira exhibition centre. However, for couples wanting more intimate surroundings in a more central location then this is not the hotel to choose.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

It takes about 45 minutes to walk into the main tourist areas of Barcelona however, it is a very pleasant route and ideal for people who want to combine sightseeing with fitness
