Overview

The first-class Hotel Astoria offers an elegant and modern home away from home at the heart of Barcelona's upscale Eixample district. A range of attractions sits within walking distance of the hotel, a great bonus of any sojourn in Barcelona. The hotel is housed in a renovated building from the early 20th century, built in Art Nouveau style. Facilities include a rooftop terrace with an outdoor swimming pool, a gym and sauna and restaurant. The small on-site museum is dedicated to the Catalan illustrator Ricard Opisso, who was Gaudi's apprentice.

Rooms

Hotel Astoria has 114 guest rooms, split into three categories: single, double and superior. With a clean-lined look and a contemporary feel, each room has a marble bathroom equipped with bathtub and toiletries. Other in-room trappings include flat-screen TVs, wireless Internet access (for a fee), air-conditioning and mini bar. Superior rooms are ideal for families and feature a separate rest area with a sofa. One of the superior rooms is split-level. Two superior units showcase private terraces overlooking the street. Guests can choose between smoking and non-smoking rooms. Cots are available free of charge (upon request). Room service is also available.

Property features

Art Nouveau touches pervade the hotel's interior, including frescoes, busts and fine Lalique crystal. The art collection of Hotel Astoria is a standout. It displays Art Nouveau posters from the early 20th century throughout, including at the Astor restaurant. The ground-floor Opisso Museum exhibits over a hundred pieces by Catalan illustrator Ricard Opisso, who worked alongside Anton Gaudi. In addition to great art, Hotel Astoria showcases market-fresh cuisine and good-value lunches at Astor restaurant.

Lovely Hotel In Barcelona

Would recommend Tue, May 12, 2015
The Hotel was two blocks from the main shopping area La Gracia, lots of tube stations nearby. The Hotel was on a nice quiet street, the hotel was spotless, the room was confortable and clean. The breakfast was lovely and not too much at 8 Euros each per day.

Lovely hotel...Great value, very hard beds

Would recommend Wed, Sep 17, 2014
We loved the Hotel Astoria. I would stay here again in a second. The place is older and immaculately kept. The room was small and well appointed with all indirect lighting and lots of large windows (we were at the back). It was incredibly quiet. Bathroom is small (maybe too small for a bidet and toilet) but very nicely appointed. There is a pool on the top floor with an expansive view down the hill to the port. Just lovely. Breakfast was delicious if a little pricey at €14 ea. The biggest gripe we had was that there were two beds and not one (common in europe) and the bed was hard as a rock. If you like hard beds this is not a problem, I prefer a little more give. But that's a small thing. Overall, highly recommended. Great location near the Metro and the Ramblas.

Dining

Check out the delicious La Flauta II just a few blocks away at Carrer de Balmes, 164.

Good location at an affordable price

Would recommend Thu, Jun 12, 2014
Being a little north from the city center (but still easily within public transportation distance), this is a a hotel that is able to offer a very affordable rate for the value in Barcelona. It was perfectly convenient for me because I was staying for business several blocks away, and I took the bus to the Rambla and the waterfront one night, and walked to the city center easily the second night. The room I was given was clean and spacious - in fact I had a suite with a separate room up a flight of stairs including a couch and a desk. The only thing that was missing was a a coffee maker in the room. The front desk staff were courteous and helpful, giving me recommendations of restaurants as well as directions. All in all the Hotel Astoria was a breath of fresh air in an otherwise unaffordable city, and provided great value and quality that made my business trip productive.

Money saver

Avoid the hotel breakfast and opt for a pastry and espresso at one of the numerous places nearby!

Would recommend Thu, Sep 19, 2013
This Hotel was walking distance to many tourist locations. The pool and lounge area on the rooftop were nice and clean. Staff was great, room was clean, and the bed comfortable. Good neighbourhood to walk around with cafes.

Attractions

Medium walk to the Sagrada. Short walk to other facades.

Bonus in Barcelona

Would recommend Tue, Apr 17, 2012
The Hotel Astoria is located in LEixample - an area about a 15 minute walk from the Passeig de Gracia - but the metro is close and the Hop On Hop Off tourist bus stop even closer. Rooms are small but very well appointed and sparkling clean. Our 6th floor room had a great view of an urban courtyard and terraces below. There were several casual cafes and bistros nearby as well as upscale shops. Free computer available for use in the lobby and a mostly helpful staff. A very good value!!

Attractions

There are a number of Antoni Gaudi designed attractions in the area other than La Sagrada Familia and they are all worth seeing. La Pedrera, Casa Battlio (as well as other buildings on "the Block of Discord") and Park Guell are not to be missed!!

Not bad for Barcelona

Would recommend Sun, Apr 1, 2012
The advantage of Astoria is that it in a pretty good neighbourhood. Close to Diagonal subway makes it easily accessible to most major sites. The rooms are small. I think we got the room for about $115USD per night. At that price, which seemed reasonable for central Barcelona and provided good value.

Dining

Breakfast buffet is okay value at 8 Euro when on special but probably not worth 15 to me. Selection of baked goods, some cheese, and relatively cheap processed meat.

Nice, If you get the right room!

Would not recommend Mon, May 30, 2011
So after looking at the pictures on the website and reviews for the hotel we decided we would give this hotel a shot. We originally planned to have a 3rd person in the room with us that was going to meet us in Barcelona so the hotel told us they could put us in a room, no problem. Our friend backed out and we explained it a check in time and explained that it was only my wife and I and that we no longer needed a room for 3. They checked us in to room 628 and sent us on our way. We went upstairs and as soon as we opened the door there was a strong sewage like odor which immediately made my waife nauscious. The decor in the room was very dated, unlike the furniture in the photos. The walls appeared dirty and falling apart in some areas and it looked like mold was drowing near the window A/C unit next to the window that looked out onto a shaft, not a nice view. There were two single beds in the room and a love seat in a separate living area that was attached to the bedroom, no door between them just walled off somewhat. I walked down to the front desk and to be polite I asked if he could move me to a room with 1 larger bed instead of bringing up the sewage stench in front of other guests. We were told there were no other rooms available in the 8 floor hotel and we should check back with them the next day. If I hadn't prepaid for 3 nights, I would have checked out then. After steaming on it for a couple hours and sending out various emails I went back upstairs and called the front desk again and told them about the stench and again asked to be moved. This time a different gentleman was very helpful and agreed to move us, but again asked if we needed a room for 3 people noting that there were no other rooms for this. I again explained that there was no 3rd person coming and he immediately gave us a new room. This room was the one pictures were made from. We had new stylish furniture, a queen bed, a loft area with a living area with a leather couch, bigger than the one our third guest was supposed to sleep on originally, and views of the city. The best part was that there was no sewage smell!!!! After the initial issues our stay here was great and the hotel is in a pretty convenient location to the metro - it's about a 10 minute walk. It's a nice hotel, just make sure you don't get room 628 or one similar. If you do demand another room that is nicer, unless you can deal with the smell.

this hotel is only a couple of blocks away from La Rambla, the most popular street in Barcelona. The room was nice although small and needed an easy chair of some type. I could also hear the shower on side of me and above me. They were early risers. But the location and the cleanliness and friendliness of the staff trumps the few negatives
