Recent guest reviews
Stayed at the Abba Rambla for three nights, recommended by Thomas Cook. Not disappointed, great location just 10 mins walk from La Rambla and set in its own courtyard style street "Rambla Del Raval". Arrived at 10:00 due to an early flight from Birmingham but a room was available even though check in not until 14:00. Room was great, very clean, usual shampoo, shower gel etc in bathroom. Hairdryer also in bathroom but quite an antique! No kettle in room. Breakfast was adequate, the usual continental with a small section of scrambled egg & bacon too. For a three star we thought it was great, and if we were to return we would definitely stay there again.
The room was clean and spacious ( although, the safety deposit box was not working , we were just too tired and pressed for time to worry about it). The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is centrally located , about 5- 10 minute walk to Las Ramblas/metro , at the end of Carrer de l'Hospital , by a little square. The street, Carrer de l'Hospital , looks dark and scary but after walking through a couple of times, we convinced ourselves that there were plenty of help , if needed: workers, other locals, some tourists and even a hospital.
A hotel can't depend solely on it's location. It's proximity to La Rambla the popular tourist street in central Barcelona is it's only claim to fame. But the hotel itself is just average. When we checked in, all the air conditioners (in all rooms) were not working. We tried 3 different rooms (each time we had to lug our 8 bags..we were 4 of us by ourselves..no help from anyone from the hotel) but to our dismay, the air-cons in every room weren't working. The hotel staff said that since it's a Sunday, they wouldn't be able to do anything about it and we'd have to wait till the next day. The bathrooms were run down and the fixtures weren't in good condition. There were some good roadside restaurants nearby where we could get a bite to eat and La Rambla street as well as the metro and bus stations were a good 15 minutes walk from here.
beds are fine, the place is clean, breakfast ok, very good for 3 stars. go to rambla and metro through Hospital street (which is not so nice) no kettle in the room, but there is hot water in the lobby. free WIFI, and good reception.
Just returned from a 6 night stay and cannot fault the hotel. Immaculate hotel with friendly staff. Rooms spacious and kept extremely clean. Continental buffet has great choice. The location is excellent within easy walk of las ramblas. Some would say it's not the best area but we felt safe walking about. If we were to return to Barcelona would definitely stay here.
Stayed in ABBA Rambla hotel from 26th March to 2nd April 2017. The hotel is very conveniently located just 500 metres west of the La Rambla main tourist area of Barcelona. Rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet and the hotel staff very helpful. The buffet breakfast was was of a good standard and was serve in a pleasant dining area.
lovely hotel, the rooms were a good size and kept really clean! Stayed here for 4 days and it was very close to la Rambla. There were metros really near by nearest one maybe 5-7 mins walk! The reception staff were very lovely too. I read some reviews complaining about noise but we had no problems! Theres a beautiful balcony as well! Would definitely stay here again!
The room was nice enough and moderately priced, but I would have paid more to be more centrally located and in a little less sketchy neighborhood. First night there we walked around the neighborhood (it sits on a "square"). Lots of homeless and druggy looking people. While walking, someone threw out a lit cigarette from a 2nd story window and it almost landed on our teenage son. Then, our two rooms were situated by the alley. Also, on the 1st night there was screaming outside and sounded like a big fight or robbery. It just wasn't an area I felt was safe enough for my family. Also, time is money and the walk to the subway was just a bit too far in my opinion. I wish we had ponied up and paid to be nearer to Las Ramblas. I would not suggest this hotel for families.
The room was perfect. It included a bath tub, two double beds, a large TV and a view of the outside plaza. Though the bustling plaza is right outside, we couldn't hear any outside noise as we slept. The hotel staff were friendly accommodating all of our requests and questions - in English! :) The hotel is in close proximity to several restaurants and bars and is walking distance to Las Ramblas. We felt safe walking at night and walked around and sat in the plaza on New Years evening. We enjoyed our time here and if we return, we'll certainly consider another stay at this location.
Just of the La Rambla, this a pleasant hotel in the El Raval neighborhood. this is my 2nd time to this hotel. The rooms are clean and in good shape. The service is OK and the front desk staff is helpful. The breakfast menu is good. The hotel is quiet and easily accessible. It is situated on the Rambla del Raval street where you can find quite a few small restaurants and cafes. For a low budget you get very good value for your money.
