Arc la Rambla

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The location of hotel, directly on La Rambla, in the Gothic District, is excellent. It's walkable and close to Barcelona's Metro. Front desk staff is very helpful and the breakfast choices are excellent.

not bad, decent, clean, close to sea. 4 out 5 stars

Great location!!! Very annoying, no Kleenex in room. It’s not offered. It’s a very basic hotel. Probably a little too pricey for what they offer, but the outstanding location makes up for the criticism!

Staff were extra helpful and patient with everyone. The location was supurb. Rooms were very well sized and spotless. Would love to vo back some day!

This was a great hotel for price location and safety. We lived it, jane

Very helpful staff. Clean and comfortable room. Close to metro and numerous restaurants.

Nice hotel at very good location, friendly staff, small but ok rooms

Check in was horrible. I felt like an innconvience to the staff. They told me check in was at two so I came back at two and my room wasn’t ready. I told her I was very tired and needed to lay down. She rolled her eyes and told me she would call again. All and all the stay wasn’t bad but check in made me sick.

Beds are very small. A/C did not work. No cabinets or dressers in the room. Bathrooms are OK for three stars. Patio was nice but overlooks a half destroyed building. There is some kind of establishment behind the hotel that has loud drunks milling around outside it until six AM. Bad combination with the nonfunctional A/C. Staff are friendly and polite, and they want to help guests. Overall, there is no reason to give this hotel three stars. One point five would be accurate.

Excellent place to stay, accessible to everything.

Great location in the middle of everything along La Rambla! Room was a little small but we didn't spend much time in the room, anyway.

The hotel was nice, perfectly located, pleasantly modern, with full amenities. The on site breakfast was wonderful! We did not utilize housekeeping services as we were only there three days. My only negative comment is regarding check in. Before arrival, I had inquired about checking in early since we were arriving at 0830 after an overnight flight. The desk staff were against that possibility even though I agreed to pay an additional day. And then we were told twenty minutes three different times. Very frustrating and could have been handled better. Either way, I would stay here again.

Nice hotel but double room small was very small room.

Awesome! Great checkin, clean and updated hotels and overall great location.

very clean hotel room, easy to find very near the Christopher Columbus statue near the end of La Rambla, very helpful staff. I asked about a restaurant recommended by the taxi driver, the front desk person validated it was a good restaurant and immediately offered to call to make dinner reservations for me. The restaurant was excellent too!

The moment that we arrived to the hotel we were greeted in the most friendly manner. The hotel front desk personnel were always kind and knew all the answers to any questions I had, they were beyond helpful. The rooms were spacious and modern. The cleaning staff did an amazing job cleaning. Our room was always spotless. The hotel is located right on the main street with many main attractions and transport just steps away. Overall this hotel exceeded all expactations I would recommend anyone booking a trip to Barcelona to stay here.

Great location, nice and helpful staff. However the shower is bit small in the balcony room type but smaller room size has better shower size. None of those shower has space to put soap. No complementary coffee nor tea. You can ask for a cattle but bring you own tea/coffee. No concierge service, but you can leave luggage for €2??

This hotel is at the great location right on La Rambla and affordable. That is just all positives about it. Night/evening front desk staff is very unhelpful and unfriendly. Daytime staff especially Igor is total opposite of the night staff. Room was not cleaned once ( dust bunnies I saw the 1st day there were on the 9th day), beds were made. No coffeemaker or a fridge, not even an ice backet in the room. Oh like other reviews stated rooms 4-7 on every floor have a raw sewage smell and staff will swear they can't smell anything yet they use airfreshner to mask it. Would not stay here again or recommend this hotel
