Hotel has a fantastic location on the main shopping street of Barcelona. Room vas spacious however I'm not sure I like to have bathroom in the open space. As my room was from the street site I just felt a bit too open. Breakfast in the morning was very good with fantastic selection of Spanish breakfast classics like potato omelette. I will be coming back but will ask for a room from the back as mine was a bit noisy
This place is not a 5 star hotel, it's a 3.2 at best. I suppose the location is good if you're looking for the most touristy part of Barcelona. However, when you arrive at the front door, there is no entry to the hotel, in fact you have to click a buzzer with a scary camera to go up to the next story. On the next story you'll be met by an unfriendly and not very helpful receptionist who knows you're going to be disappointed with the you room reserved. As a matter of fact when I made a comment about the size of the room being very small, the receptionist's first comment was you got exactly the square feet that you agreed upon on the website. Additionally, the air conditioning could not be changed internally by yourself. You have to have somebody come up from downstairs to unlock its setting. Now on to the size of the room. Definitely make sure you're going to look at the square feet that you were going to be receiving. Our room on the 6th floor is like a closet. It reminds me of efficiency room in Manhattan. Not a nice one, one that is like a closet. Closyrophobic is the theme here. Next, the noise. I can hear my neighbors walking around upstairs and I can also hear my downstairs neighbors talking out on the balcony. No, we don't have a balcony, someone else does. There's really not much sound insulation and our bed is literally right next to the door of the hallway. Thank goodness we only did 3 nights here. For $30 more night you could be staying at the Hilton hotel in a king-size bed. That's probably where we might consider going next. Good luck guys!
We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. We had no idea how well located the hotel was to all the sights. The hotel was right in front of one of the stops for the city sightseeing bus. Las Rambla, Boqueria Market, Plaza Catalunya, Casa Mia were all within walking distance. The hotel was located on one o the main shopping streets. It was vibey and full of activity. The reception is on the first floor. The lifts open up to a small reception area with a nice airy library and seating area to the left and the breakfast area on the right. It is very elegantly decorated. Our superior room was on the 6th floor and had a balcony facing Passeig de Gracia. The room was properly sound proofed with double glazed windows. The room was very spacious with a huge bath tub in the middle of the bathroom. We received complimentary water and crisps daily. Breakfast was complimentary as we booked our stay directly with the hotel. It was a lavish continental spread of high quality ingredients -simply delicious. I loved the treats at reception - apples and jars of chocolates, marshmallows and sweets - decadent. The service at the hotel was excellent. The staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and we truly appreciate that. Special mention goes to Joaquim, Gabriela, Naira, Edgar, Jorge and Gabriel - thank you for making our stay memorable.
Was looking forward to this stay, upon arrival- Entrance was like a hostel, but smells nice, 1st floor was the tiny reception, on the left was the restaurant/bar, the right was rooms, how bizarre! Upon walking into room, first instance was ‘wow’ (bath tub in the middle of room) then as you walk in ‘ok ok’. Lets talk about the bathroom part what other reviewers are saying; Yes its a unique design, but as you get to use the facilities it all falls downwards... shower has no extractor so room heats up, dirt around the sides, shower door doesn’t close properly and it leaks out onto floor. Basin was dreadful, small and yes it leaks all over the floor! The shelf the the sides ( how inconvenience). Bath tub was big- but did it drain?...very slowly... Bed was very comfortable, but why didn’t house keeping change the duvets daily??? Same mark on it. Kettle not cleaned, general marks everywhere etc. Nice big mirror. Balcony window opens wide but can be dangerous. TV very small lol. And lastly the AIRCON does not work! Why can’t they clean it??? Location was good, very close to metro/bus stops, again in Barcelona every location is walking distance to be honest, 5-10min to Las Rambla/gothic quarter. To sum up, whoever design the rooms didn’t think about the convenience of the usage. Think this is aimed at younger groups. This is definitely not a 5 star hotel, opposite is a luxury 5 star. But the price reflects on this. Would I recommend? Yes but thats if you don’t mind the above and housekeeping to do there duties.
Stayed in room 603, was nice with a good view of Passeig de Gracia. It didn't have the balcony I expected though. Room was an ok size and bed was very comfortable with a choice of pillows. Shower is good, alot of people complain about the toilet but didn't really see it as much of an issue. The 2 sinks though are a bit un user friendly, nowhere to put your stuff so the floor gets soaked moving around. Could add a coffee machine to make it a bit more 5 star. Staff were nice however 2 of 3 spoken too need to work on their English a little. Breakfast choice wasn't great and trying to get someone to order omelettes or anything was not obvious so never got any in the end. Overall a good stay though, seemed to be a good price compared to others although without having a pool I don't think any hotel should be allowed to call itself a 5 star. That aside its more of a low range 4 star
I have read numerous critical reviews of this hotel and think they are predominantly really unfair. The location is fantastic just 50-100m from the Passieg de gracia train station (4 stops and 4.20 euros from the airport). We had upgrade to room 214 a large suite with 2 single beds pushed together. the room was great and the sinks were set in the main room. Previous occupants criticism of chip in the small sinks (yes very small). Whilst I did see this I have seen similar at other 5star hotels. They are minor defects which clearly need addressing but do not affect your stay. The shower cubicle made from mosaic tiles had approx 5 which had popped off amongst thousands in the large cubicle. the shower was very powerful and the twin shower head would be the cause as it falls off when at full force. The room was very clean and made every day including complimentary water, crisps and toothbrush/paste. All of the normal features including slippers and shower gel/shampoo etc. The room was a great size and ensured a lovely stay in a fantastic city. The breakfasts were good and wide selection. Don't let the reviews put you off this fantsatic location and ideal hotel. Have a great trip
Fabulous location and staff at Eurostars BCN. From the welcoming and easy check in to the happy and genuinely great customer service each and every day, this hotel is a delight. 50 metres to the bus stop and 50 metres to the train station direct to BCN T2 airport, also the metro. Walking distance to the Ramblas, Familia Sagrada, Milla etc etc all the major tourist sites are walking distance. The service was excellent; special mention to Edgar and Jose at breakfast who do a fantastic job. The breakfast is very good, fresh fruit, berries, juice, cold meats, cheese and freshly cooked omelettes, bacon and eggs etc. if you wish. The rooms are modern art, super quiet, clean with good bed linen with choice of pillow types. Yes the room has a small sink but this is a minor issue when you add up all the positives. We will certainly return to this hotel.
The staff were pleasant, the room on the 6th floor had a good view, but from a 5 star hotel I would want the attention to detail to be better. The shelf in the bathroom area was chipped, the seal on the shower door didn’t fit properly so the door would not close fully, lie in the bath and you see the underside of the tap covered in limescale. We decided to eat in the bar at night, there was one person serving and when we order a few items he disappeared for 10 mins before coming back with 1 item of tapas, this happened over and over, we finished each dish and sat waiting, no one to buy a drink from and very slow service - it was a bit farcical. The food we did have wasn’t great. Our stay was ok, but I would rate it a 3* Experience max.
Nice hotel in an excellent area of Barcelona. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. The room is quite big and the bed is confortable. The minus was on the design actually. At first, it looks trendy and fun but all this style is not very convenient, especially the sink which is tiny and not practical. The second minus was on the view which was non existent. It seems the room was located on the back of the building so you see nothing and you lack daylight. The breakfast was delicious. you can select your eggs's style and you have many juices. Really enjoyed it.
We booked our whole day according to this Free tour offered by eurostars. We called the day before in case we needed to book for it and they told us "we dont know ask in the morning". In the morning they said no need to book you have to go to the meeting point directly in the eurostars Crystal, and there was nothing in the Crystal Hotel, that called for informations to give us the answer : they dont answer. And when they call OUR hotel BCN Design (with whom we asked 2 times) they tell them : its closed until Monday ! BUT HOW COME ON THE PAMPHLET (attached) ITS WRITTEN EVERYDAY !!!! Unaccetable to offer a service that you cant even provide. Last time i stay with the eurostars group.
