NH Barcelona La Maquinista

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

After staying in hostels throughout Spain this hotel appeared very modern and fancy. However, once we entered our room the smell of cigarettes was unbearable. It also seemed that every time our room was serviced the smell was stronger than before which made us think the workers smoke in the rooms. The hotel is in a good location, located around 3 blocks from the nearest metro station which connects to just about anywhere in Barcelona. Lots of bars and the club Razzmatazz surround the hotel as well as coffee shops.

I booked a reservation yester day ;no prepayment-free cancellation through booking.com However, they tried to day to charge my credit card the full amount of money today and got declined by the bank!!!! And they said that it's booking.com But the bank statement said it was nh la maquinistaa..

My friend and I just spent 3 nights here after seeing a great deal online. I was worried before we arrived that it would be really far out from Barcelona centre and that the area would be sketchy for two young girls (I am a big over thinker). But we were so pleasantly surprised. We felt safe in the area, walking to and from the closest metro (7min walk max) was easier than we anticipated and the hotel itself was super spacious and clean. The beds were really comfortable and the shower was so good!!! (There's a hair dryer too) There was also air con which we appreciated after the long hot days. There was a safe in the room which is always a massive plus!! Couldn't ask for more really! (Maybe some coffee making facilities but it's not the end of the world) The mall next door was great for us and we spent half a day walking around the shops, as there are SO many good ones!! Along with lots of lovely restaurants and a big supermarket that was handy to get water/snacks. The metro ride into the centre was about 10mins on the red line. Super simple and easy to navigate. (I recommend getting the Barcelona transport app, which is basically just a map of the metro, it was really helpful!) If you are looking for a good hotel at a cheaper price (look out for the deals!) then this is perfect! We really enjoyed our stay here, thankyou x

If you have health problems that require you to sleep in a cool room-then please beware. The only problem that I had with this hotel was that we went to bed with a comfortable room temperature and were awakened during the night by sauna-like heat. At first, I thought I had a fever due to a slight cold since I became so sweaty during the night. But after the second night and with confirmation from my husband, I realized it wasn't me it was the lack of cool air. The night manager came to our room promptly after we complained one night. She even had to acknowledge that the room was very warm. We found out from the hotel desk manager that they turn the AC off during the night/early morning hours. We felt that this practice was ridiculous. If the temperature outside is high why turn off the air conditioning? And blow hot air? Our sleep was disrupted due to the hot air blowing through the vents. The location of the hotel was great. The staff was really nice. We enjoyed our time in Barcelona but this sweltering hotel quickened our desire to head home.

Located near a very nice shopping mall including restaurants of all kinds. Public transportation is nearby ( metro, tax, and bus) 2 metro station at a 5 mn walk. 15 mn bus drive from downtown touristy and expensive hotels. Quiet neighborhood. we enjoyed our stay and will come again.

My Wife and Daughter are just back from a five day trip to Barcelona, and stayed here. They found the Hotel very clean and modern and in a great location away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of Barcelona. Staff were very good and helpful, and they would stay here again if and when they returned to Barcelona.

Brilliant hotel.. friendly and helpstaff.. excellent location for getting to all areas of Barcalona. METRO AND train 3 blocks aways,buses and taxi outside hotel. Only downside would be the lack of tea/coffee facilities in the room. Us brits do love our tea!!!

We were being shuttled around so places to walk to was not a problem for us. It was 3 mile walk to the beach but a big mall and upscale food court seconds from the hotel made finding a nice dinner and a great number of places to sit and have a beer in a bustling little safe area was perfect. The rooms were clean, breakfast a nice mix of meats and fruit as well as so e great juices in the morning. Staff were friendly and spoke english also.

Far from city center and airport. Metro line is 5 blocks and takes you in 20 min to Plaza Cataluña. For the price and having a place to park a rental car was worth it. the staff at hotel were very friendly and professional. Good buffet breakfast but a little pricy.

I needed a taxi to the airport. Understand that she was busy but she did not immediately help me out to find a taxi when it was emergency. My flight was two hours away and I was late. She mentioned she is not even sure what time the taxi was coming and asked me to wait. I suggest u should have a hotel taxi for guest. I had to wait outside trying to stop a cab. I could not remember her name but she had curly short hair.
