NH Barcelona Ramblas

Recent guest reviews

The hotel has a great location but it's limited in comfort.

I've been to Barcelona before and I really like smaller, locally-owned shops, restaurants and hotels. I'm in another city to experience the sights/activities of that city, not go to a pool or spa. Hesperia has clean, comfortable rooms that are pretty modern. The price is good and its a few steps from the middle of the Ramblas, right in the action. I didn't eat the breakfast as I went to an outdoor café each morning.

The room was adequate but overpriced. The staff was not friendly or accomodating. I would not stay here again. Barcelona is a huge city with any number of hotel choices. Do your research before selecting a hotel.

the hotel is just off the Ramblas, the major street in that area. near several shops, cafes and the local market which was nice. the unfortunate thing is that the smell of garbage or fish permeates the road adjacent to the hotel that leads tothe market. also, you have to ring a bell to be let into the hotel so if someone isn't at the desk to open the door, you may be waiting outside for awhile, which is a little annoying. rooms are clean, shower is good. bathroom in general is a good size. Just be aware there is no lock on the door so i you plan to share and you need that kind of privacy, you won't get it here. also, the 2 separate bed option is really 2 twin beds pushed together, which is really 1 bed, so keep that in mind. the beds are also very firm, and the pillows very soft. large window in the room so you can get fresh. air, but the street can be noisy. the closed window blocks the noise well. free WiFi is plus, however you have to log into i everytime you use it which is a bit annoying. also, watch your wallets when walking the Ramblas. you will see people playing games for a small bet, or trying to sell knick knacks. don't play or buy. they wil try to cheat or steal from you. all in all, good for a short stay and to experience the Ramblas and nearby shops. within walking distance of a number of squares, the Picasso museum and the tour buses. would recommend if the above issues aren't a problem

My friend and I booked this hotel for five nights and had a great time staying there. The location is just of La Ramblas, close to the Liceu metro station, and a 2 minute walk to the Boqueria market where we could get fresh juice and pastries every morning. The hotel staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. Even though my friend and I spoke Spanish with the hotel staff, everyone there knows and understands English. The room was very clean and spacious. When entering the hotel, you have to buzz to get into the hotel, which makes you feel very safe. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. I would definitely stay there again.

For a quick stay in Barcelona I recommend the Hesperia Ramblas Hotel. Great location, fairly quite and helpful staff.

Blink and you might miss this find off of Hospital near Ramblas. We arrived in Barcelona via the airport shuttle to Placa Catalunya and had a quick 10-15 min. walk down Las Ramblas to the hotel. It’s quite easy to find – at the Liceau Metro station turn right and the hotel is on your right before the first street. The hotel buzzes you through the front door. The location was IDEAL – so close to Ramblas and La Bouqueria Market. We had breakfast every morning in the market and also had lunch there (Kiosko Universal) that we’d recommend. The location was also great for walking to most of Barcelona’s sights. We rarely took the Metro! As far as the hotel, we had room 407. I will echo previous comments that the hallway rug tiles were filthy, but as I was not walking barefoot on them it was only really an eyesore. The room was similar to NH rooms we’ve stayed in – faux wood floors, contemporary furnishings. We had two twins pushed together. The tv only had one English channel – BBC News. There was a mini-bar, closet and desk. The mini-bar had enough room for our own drinks to chill. The room and bathroom were large by Euro standards. The bathroom had no towel rack for hand towels or tissues – just minor oversights on their part? We enjoyed the free wifi. We saw the breakfast room every morning but we weren’t sure if it was included/free so we never attempted it. If it is free, they need to do a better job of letting guests know either at check-in, in the room or with signage. All in all, the location can’t be beat and we enjoyed our stay.

This is a great inexpensive no-frills but very clean hotel in the heart of Barcelona. The staff was exceptionally helpful as well. We loved being right of Las Ramblas and it was a quick walk to anywhere we wanted to go. I would definitely recommend Hesperia Ramblas to anyone looking for the same.

Great staff, great location, nice rooms and amenities. Got there early as do many travelers, they tag and store you luggage efficiantly, The location is just awsome, just around the side brings you into the Bogueria market, Just a block over is the best and affordable spicy bombay resturant, fixed menu at 8.5 eu. A super deal for super food in this tourist exploited zone. Get the hotel breakfast at 10 eu. Its good and the coffee is endless, if you start buying coffee at 2.5 euro a pop just to get your morning groove on it bites, The hotel lets you fill up, no hastle, [...]at the desk and the wonderful women that runs the brekfast service make you feel valued, free wifi is a dream, cant be beat. Tip the good ones they deserve it...

Great location short walk from train station friendly staff.Fantastic breakfast.wouls stay there again.
