It was okay

We weren't very impressed with our stay. The location was great - nice area and central. The reception area and the hotel in general was clean. The room was just okay. There was a constant smell from toilet waste pipe - not a strong one but you can smell it everytime you enter the room. The air-con wasn't working properly but luckily it wasn't too hot outside so we opened the window instead. There was no room service as there was only one staff at the reception so if you want anything (additional shampoo etc.), you would need to walk down to the reception and get it yourself. There was only one lift which could only take 4 people so during rush hour, we had to wait for a while to use the lift. I wouldn't say it is a four star hotel.

Great base for a busy weekend

The hotel is in a great location, a short walk from everywhere we needed: shopping, sights etc. Great decor with modern twist on the traditional. The bed was very firm, not to my liking and more like sleeping on a platform than a mattress and the daily room clean was still going on after 5pm when we arrived back looking for an exhausted lie down, but we found the lounge for a sit down instead. I would recommend this hotel.

Absolutely fantastic!

Stayed here in early December. Perfectly situated for all the sights. We arrived by train and it was a short walk from Passeig de Gracia railway station. Left by plane and it was only a 5 min walk to the very efficient airport bus service from Placa Catalunya. Welcomed by friendly and helpful receptionist. Rooms are stylish and spotless. Will definitely return.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Don't bother with a taxi. Get the bus from the airport. It operates every 10 minutes, costs €5.90 and drops you a 5 min walk from the hotel.

Smelly room

The location was fantastic, no doubt about it, and that is why I booked here. We stayed at 5 different hotels ([...]) all thoughout Spain and this was by far the least impressive. The rooms were small and cramped. When we first arrived we got to a room the size of a matchbox with a bed that was about 5 feet long and not even that wide and went down to the front desk to tell them we had requested two twin beds, he kind of chucked the key across the counter and blurted out our new room number (looked like he was expecting us to come back and complain). There was practically no customer service at the front desk until the day we were leaving. The hotel had a really stifling smell, like olive juice and vinegar, not sure if they washed their linens in vinegar but we got all of our clothes laundered when we got to Malaga because we couldn't stand the smell any longer. Too bad because this place has soooo much potential!! If someone would just come and give it a facelift!! They have a great 'rooftop' patio that we never used but looked very inviting. Internet access was good. Would I stay here again? No.

Beautiful

Hotel Granvia is a Georgious Hotel. The photes do not do this building justice. Other then one desk clerk I really didn't have a problem with the staff, but that is the closest thing to a con about staying at this Hotel. Its located on Gran Via and just a couple of minute walk to great shops. My husband and I walked from the Hotel to the beach and it took less then 25 minutes.Granvia is located in a safe area. The Rooms were clean and the bathroom was larger then some that we have stayed in, in Europe. Nicely decorated, would stay again.

Watch for siesta times. Its nice having a break in the middle of the day though. Most shops are open until 9pm. Unlike some countries in Europe that close at 4pm.

Outstanding Location and Service

Comfortable and exceptionally clean (particularly considering the hotel's age). Great character inside the lobby, salon and patio areas. If you are a weary, fast-moving, backpack style traveler, this place will meet/exceed your expectations for the money. And to boot more room space than your average European double room. The staff from check-in and throughout was very helpful and conscientious. Asked in advance for a quiet room (not overlooking the busy Granvia street) and they had the room waiting for us as planned - didn't even have to ask. Awesome considering these details often get lost. And, if you are an English speaking guest in Barcelona, Granvia is excellent choice for information around the city. I suspect they know their core customer. Only drawback is that if you are traveling with a significant other, good chance your double room like ours will not be able to have the two single beds placed together due to a built-in wall night stand. And the breakfast was a little much for our grab-and-go AM tastes, although still reasonable at 7 Euros/person.

Old-world elegance in a great location

The Granvía is right in the heart of everything. It's only a block from the Plaza Catalunya. There is a metro station extremely close, as well as the Ramblas. The Corte Inglés is on the next corner as well as many other fashionable shops and stores. The neighborhood is loaded with wonderful restaurants and cafes. As we are opera buffs and had tickets for the Liceu, we were thrilled that we could walk there from the hotel.
