Recent guest reviews
One night business stop over. Handy for diagonal and Camp Nou. Good breakfast and clean quiet room. Coffee from a machine was actually very good and staff easy going with good English. Not a lot in the immediate vicinity, but as usual in Bcn you can find fruiters and bakeries close by.
The staff were really friendly and chatty. The hotel is in the back streets of Barcelona which offers a quite escape whilst the city is only 5 minutes by the bus stop just outside the hotel enterance. It has two supermarkets only metres away! The room it self was plain and clean which for me is ideal. The bathroom was very modern and had a power shower. The room was tidied and freshened up during the day which was nice to come back too. I would defiantly stay again, brilliant value for money and set in a beautiful place, moments away from the loud and busy streets. Couldn't ask for more for the price. Was a pleasure!
Hotel located on a very quiet area. Rooms are spaciuos. Very functional. Bathroom is the best part of the room. New and spacious. You have the metro station just 5' walking distance. Very secure area in Barcelona. The personal is very nice. They helped us out.
It was good enough... The best aspect of it was the cleaning room! Really! Very very good cleaning and perfect "make my room" The friendliness of the reception was not the best but enough! In my opinion the price is too high for the hotel, but is in Barcelona (expensive city)
I have visited Barcelona three times since Christmas, (4nights in December, 7 nights in January and 2 nights in May) each time staying at Bonanova Park, essentially because it is only a 15-20minute pleasant walk to my son's flat in Pedralbes. The rooms are always clean and more than adequate for a lone traveller all through the year. Every window has external (optional venting), shutters which totally block any light during the night. The modern, clean shower rooms have ample hot water, toiletries and more than sufficient towels. I don't eat here, so cannot comment on dining. Sarria is an upmarket district of Barcelona, away from the hustle and bustle of the centre, hence a very quiet and desirable area. The main road through Barcelona, 'Avinguda Diagonal' is a 5 minute stroll down the hill, where you can get the Metro or a tram into the centre, etc. Pedrables shopping centre and Les Cortes Ingles department stores are just across the roads. There are several other tourist attractions, including Camp Nou stadium and the monastery within a short distance. Trust me I have searched and the only cheaper accommodation I can find is a hostel, occasionally there may be a room on Airbnb in this district; but I think the family travelling on a budget while requiring assured comfort and privacy, would be delighted with this hotel. (Metro tickets are 10€ for 10 trips, so the location should not be prohibitive for anyone wanting to take in any of the delights Barcelona has to offer). Never dined in the hotel, so I can't comment on that experience but can assure there are some lovely eateries just across the road. A taxi from the airport has always cost me 30€, never a cent more. Cannot fault.
This hotel is most probably the worst hotel I have stayed in my life....and I have traveled all over the world in the past and have stayed in hundreds of hotels in my life, but never experienced something like this. Unfortunately my employer booked and paid for the hotel - therefore I had no choice, but if it was my choice, I would avoid this hotel at all costs - unless you are prepared to stay in a hotel which reminds you of a school hostel mixed with a prison. My room was below standard and in South Africa, such a hotel would NOT be in business, because nobody would accept to stay at such a sub-standard hotel. The crazy part is that the room rate was €116 per night and I could not understand that at all - If I was forced to stay at this hotel, I would not pay more than €25 per night.... that is what it is worth. The rooms have no carpets, the floors are dirty, there is a musky smell of cheap perfume mixed with cigarette smoke in the rooms. The hotel is in a very noisy area - so you cannot open the windows - unless you want to hear screaming, coughing people all night and cars/ motorbikes racing in the street.... No curtains in the room and the shutters outside the window did not work - so, I slept in an open view room, feeling very vulnerable... Breakfast was an experience - just tough looking, dirty, single men staying in the hotel, eating breakfast- I did not see any women at all... that is where the feeling of being in a prison was the strongest. All in all an experience I will never forget or which I would not like to have at all again - I miss South Africa with our excellent hotels and good prices.
My son and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights as a base for a Barcelona home fixture, the hotel is ideally located near the stadium, a 15 minute walk away. The room was basic and clean and the shower and toilet facilities were good and the staff were friendly and all spoke good english. Breakfast was fine, a little limited but we found it adequate and with a good selection of local shops and eating places near food was not a problem. If we ever went back we would have no hesitation in going back to this hotel as we considered the overal cost provided good value.
Very friendly staff who could all speak English man the front desk 24 hours. There's a small lift which was great as we were on the 6th floor. Shower gel/shampoo, comb, pack of tissues (and sweets!) provided and replenished. Rooms were cleaned every day with fresh towels. They were happy to come back if they'd tried too early! The room had a fridge with minibar containing water, beer, juice, cava. Breakfast was an option but we didn't have it. Excellent location, quiet enough with 3 supermarkets, a restaurant and 3 patisseries within a minute of the hotel. At least 5 bars within 10 minute walk and the Maria Cristina metro station is about 10 minutes away. Only a few stops from the Sagrada Familia and the more lively streets near the Diagonal metro station.
The hotel is in a quieter part of Barcelona(if there is such a thing), but near enough to local shops and transport. There is a huge shopping mall within walking distance and local transport for non-walkers. In the centre the place is brilliant, the buzz of Les Rambles, all the different restaurants and pubs,you also have big company's for food etc. We tried The Attic restaurant which was really good. Sat at window overlooking the main street below with people miming, singing and just wandering along. Food really good, as were the staff, treated well even though we were just ordinary people. Priced good and a good selection of food. Also visited Sagrada Familia, Port shops. Back to the hotel which was very clean, well stocked bathroom and a lovely buffet breakfast, hot and cold foods available, I really enjoyed the Magdalena's at that time in the morning. All in all would recommend to anyone who wants to be near city centre without all the buzz.
I stayed from 9th to 12th April 2016 with my three Sons and my Brother for a football based trip. It was easy to book online and you get email confirmation. The staff all spoke good English and were very helpful and polite too. The rooms were basic but very clean and the beds very comfortable. The showers and toilets were also very clean and the showers great too. Its only a ten minute walk to thr Nou Camp and a five minute walk to thr nearest Metro too. Id recommend and will book again next year when i return too. Thank you for a lovely stay. To all those people with very negative remarks, if you want salmon and champagne for breakfast and a six foot bed, then pay the extra and stop being tight. You get what you pay for and this hotel was very clean and the staff very nice.
