The service at this hotel is good. Staff is very friendly. Rooms are nice and clean. Breakfast is pretty good too. If you arrive to breakfast late, they won't even kick you out or anything. Wifi works great. Even made some phone calls from the hotel phone and they weren't expensive. Hotel is just north of city centre but 10 min walk to subway, and right next to other train station. Restaurants and stores are not immediately near hotel but about 10 min walk within distance of hotel scattered all over the place.

I had an amazing stay with them for that few days I have been there. Very friendly and helpful people you do not even have to ask they were way beyond to exceed your needs. Informations like transfer, transport, map with touristic places. Excellent! Thank you!

Just back from a 4 night solo stay at the Hotel Via Augusta. The hotel was easy to get to from the airport, I took the Renfe R2 Nord train to Passaig de Gracia and then changed onto the Metro Line 3 to Fontana. Taking this route means that you can use a T10 ticket, one of the bargains of the city. The hotel is then an easy 5 minute walk. Check-in was efficient and I was given room 902 on the 9th floor. It was a single room, but one of the more spacious single rooms I have had. The room was in excellent condition, I suspect that there has been a fairly recent refurbishment programme, with a single bed, desk, wardrobe, large wall mounted flat screen TV, in room safe and a shower room. The room had a small balcony but it looked onto a central light well so you wouldn't want to spend time out there. However the room was two steps from the 9th floor terrace with views over the city. I had breakfast on one morning at an additional charge of just over €9. There was cereal, toast, pastries, yoghurt, a small selection of hot items, tea,coffee and juice. The hotel has few other facilities, which I suspect is what accounts for the 2 star rating, but in Barcelona, where you're never far from bars and restaurants it doesn't really need them. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room would be nice though. Even closer than Fontana Metro station is Gracia station, which has easy links to the Placa Catalunya and the hotel is generally well located. The Via Augusta isn't too busy but getting anywhere else is reasonably simple using the excellent transport links. All in all I was very happy with my hotel choice and would have no hesitation in returning or recommending it to others.

Perfect for a city break, great area, great breakfast, comfortable rooms and very friendly staff. We went there for a 4 day city break with our 3 year old and had were not expecting much from a 2 star hotel, but were surprised to find a hotel that in France, for example, would be at least 3, maybe 4 star,

Clean and comfortable hotel near to the centre of Barcelona but away from the tourist crowds, in the stylish district of Gracia. We enjoyed our stay and have recommended this hotel to friends. Rooms are good size, bathrooms clean and breakfast good.

True to the words of many reviewers who have previously been here, my hotel room was spotlessly clean, and the beds were as comfortable as my very own back home. However, I was utterly and completely disappointed with the handling of my lost bag by the hotel management. I got back to my hotel room from a full-day of sightseeing, only to be astounded to discover several things amiss. First, an item which was originally placed inside my luggage, was strangely found resting on the table. The luggage zipper was also opened (by what means I have no idea) and after some searching, I realized a bag of great sentimental value was no where to be found. I reported to the hotel staff at the lobby, and was told that they would investigate and give me an appropriate answer, and which thereafter, we continued to correspond via e-mail after we left. Considering that this was such an esteemed and reputable hotel based on all the ratings and reviews, their replies and handing of this case were a complete let-down. Apparently, they claimed that there was no cctv in the corridor, and that they trusted their staff blah blah and the usual formalities. I was later offered 2 nights of free-stay in the hotels which I unequivocally rejected, simply because it sounded absurd and senseless that I have to fork out another 800 euros just to fly back to Barcelona (from Asia) in order to enjoy their ‘Free 2 nights stay’. What I want is sincerity and a reasonable compensation, but not only did they failed terribly in this aspect, they also lacked something called empathy. You see I have travelled around and stayed in many hotels in my life; some good, some not so but I can tell you this is outright the worst one for me. Mostly, I felt that they lacked sincerity in settling this dispute as towards the end of our e-mail exchanges, the manager said he could not do anything if I were to put up a negative review on their page. It was truly disheartening to say that they were just trying to shoo me off and get this troublesome guest done with. Lastly, I would like to say that this review is solely based on my personal opinion, and is in no way trying to shame the hotel or to seek vengeance, but rather to share this unpleasant experience with everyone. It is up to your own free-will of course to judge, and to choose if you would stay in this establishment in future. Thank you.

Pricing is fair and definitively great value for money. I would highlight their friendly staff who went out of their way to support in small errands. Great location, conveniently near metro, buses and availability of taxis.

this time my room was bad, but i have stayed and in good rooms during my previous trips. Good breakfast, good location, very near the metro station, kind personnel eager to help and guide, useful internet station for

I stayed here for 5 nights on a solo vacation trip. I picked this hotel based on its location - away from touristy areas, price and the good reviews on TripAdvisor. I had stayed in the Le Meridien prior to arriving here so was moderately surprised by the size of the room - small but comfortable. The location to me became a major advantage over the next 5 days, eventually. The local subway station (Fontana) is only a few minutes away and with a T-10 pass, I was able to travel to various go to spots in Barcelona, pretty easily - Kudos to the gentleman at the front desk for revealing this little secret on exploring Barcelona on a budget (sorry I forget your name but the person with the shaved head and glasses - very knowledgeable and friendly!). It is right across the Gracia area in a more residential part of town but with a lot of great restaurants and bars - all walking distance away. There is a McDonald's (McDonald's, Carrer Gran de Gràcia) and a Condi Express a few minutes walk across the Hotel for cafe Americano and supermarket needs. There is also a Fresh Laundromat less than a 5 min walk away (Fresh Laundry Travessera de Gracia). Room service was prompt and the front desk folks was quite friendly and conversant - learned a lot about Catalonia and the lifestyle, thru them (Thanks, Jordi and Leticia!). Ride to the airport from the hotel was about 25mins in the early hours (7ish) and cost about 36 euros. Overall, I enjoyed staying here and will stay here again, next time I visit Barcelona.

The main reason we stay at this hotel is the distance with our favourite halal food restaurant, Bali Restaurant. The hotel is also quite close with Metro, ATM, and even DHL. The location is quite close with the city center.
