very good location and very helpful staff. it was pleasure to stay in this hotel

My stay at the Gran Calderon was amazing. The staff was excellent, the room was nice, the dinners in the restaurant were great. My only issue was that the air conditioning on the 7th floor did not seem to be work, so it was unbelievably hot at night.

This is a very clean and modern hotel that is centrally located to all the important sights in Barcelona. It is one block from the Metro, and there are ample taxi cabs if needed, however almost everything you might want to see is easily arrived at with a short and pleasant stroll. There are sidewalk cafes in abundance on the street with a vibrant street scene. The hotel is exceptionally quiet. We had a Junior Suite during our stay. I think extra bathroom and seating area are worth the modest upgrade cost. The staff was great and the breakfast was good. I would return to this hotel without hesitation and will recommend it to my friends. While in the area do not miss the restaurant Vinitus and Tabla24. Both were great.

First, it was very clean, quite convenient and modern. The rooms were a little small - and bathroom tight - by American standards but it was perfectly fine, clean, and lovely. However, the best part was how wonderful the staff was. My daughter was ill, passed out and injured during our visit. The staff could not have been better. They helped us get a cab and directed the driver to the nearest hospital. They allowed us extra time in the room and then let us book extra nights at our original promotional price. But the best part ... although I went home, my daughter was staying in Barcelona for a month for a work abroad program. They told her to come to the hotel if she had ANY problems while she was there and they would help her. This was during the time AFTER we had checked out. They explained that they view customers as family and want to be of help no matter what. I love this hotel and love the Spanish (or Catalon) people!

Location is the best in Barcelona. Staff is professional and friendly, Very good breakfast. Also, it has underground parking (although somewhat expensive) which is a big plus in Barcelona.

It was a nice experience, good location and nice hotel in general

Their "24 hour wifi" was actually only 24 hours of wifi, then 10 euro for every additional 24 hours. Their up to date gym was two old bikes, a stairstepper, and a bowflex type machine, all horribly in disrepair. My minifridge was not cold enough to keep milk from spoiling overnight. My "king bed" was two twins pushed together. Location is perfect, onsite dollar to euro change desk was highly conventient. Staff spoke passable English which was much appreciated. Not worth what I paid.

Close to downtown, metro, restaurants. Taxi station at the end of the block which is very handy when we needed one. The sink and bathtub drains very slowly which makes it yucky when taking a shower.

NH is located in the perfect place. The stay was great, the hotel was clean, comfortable, and the employees was great and spoke good English. I only had two things minor things I didn't like one, The hotel didn't have adapters for American plugs and two, Ice, the hotel didn't have a ice bucket. Me and my boyfriend drink most of the time in our room and had to go out to get ice to keep our drinks cold. There two minor things but I didn't like it.

The hotel location is in the heart of the tour area near the main square. We were happy with the hotel. The restaurant prices are out rage. Just around the corner from the hotel was a great breakfast/ lunch bar. Bacon and eggs 5 euro vs 20 euro in the hotel restaurant. The two of us had breakfast with B&E, Bread, OJ and Coffee14 euro.

Comfort beds, good location, kind service. Except for the room being a little stuffy (double windows), we were very satisfied.

Helpful staff, great roof with pool and view. Early check in is free, and staff let us stay an hour and a half past check out for free

Room was very comfortable and the location was great

We were very pleased with our short stay at this simple business class hotel before our Barcelona cruise. The hotel is on a relatively quiet street, just a block or two from anything and everything you would ever want in the heart of Barcelona. The price we got through Orbitz was a steal for a place of this quality in such a great area. Everything about the hotel itself was very pleasant. Check-in went very smoothly and our room was ready even though we arrived before check-in time. The room was ample-sized (bigger than we expected for a large European city) and very modern and stylish, with unusual wood floors and excellent beds. The bathroom was very up-to-date. The only issue I had was figuring out how to operate the lights, but once the staff explained it, things were fine. The desk staff was both helpful and friendly, patiently answering several questions and offering help like providing adaptors so I could charge my Blackberry. All in all, this is a very nice place to stay if you want to be in a central location in a modern hotel charging a very reasonable price.

Our experience was terrific! The location couldn't have been better, the hotel staff was courteous and English speaking ( a plus). The only thing that I wish could have been better was the air conditioning system in our suite. One room in the suite was overwhelming cold & the other felt like the Sahari desert. Overall, I would defintely stay their again, but I did feel obligated to be truthful about the a/c.

All staff were friendly. Right in main tourist area.

This hotel is stylish and has wonderful staff. It is at a walking distance from major activities and shopping outlets. Proximity to Las Ramblas while in a quiet location as very attractive.

Great location, good service. didn't try their restaurants.

Super location, very quiet rooms, helpful staff, spotless rooms. Sorry, did not try in hotel food service since so many close-by places to eat. Hotel is very "green" so bring your own bath soap and hair conditioner...and a face cloth if you like/need one. Would stay here again with no hesitation, don't think you can beat the location and overall great hotel experience. Only queen size bed or two twins seemed to be available.

Great hotel and perfect location, amazing breakfast. Perfect for couple, family and young people.
