Oriente Atiram

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

You pay for the location. Which is in the heart of the old city. Place is a bit worn out. We had little AC, had to fix my key 2 times. Maintenance never showed and the front desk didn't know "customer service". I wouldn't give this place 3 stars. 2.5 is about right.

Location, location & location is the story about this hotel.

I spent two days after cruise. Good location. The room is a little bit small. But for a short stay, it worked just fine.

The Hotel was smack down in the middle of Las Ramblas. Which is good. I enjoy the fact that you can just go out and walk the streets. Service was good. The fee doesn't include breakfast.

The hotel is at an excellent location. The hotel staff is very, very friendly, professional, and certainly make one feel at home and as a special guest, specially the front desk staff was great. The room was ok but a little small for 2 persons but it had a balcony to the street of La Rambla which made it great!

Biggest drawback NO A/C!!!. Breakfast Marginal for the price. Location great

If your looking for a good place to stay in barcelona dont stay here. Rooms are dirty and loud. The beds are like sleeping on the floor and the pillows could be from the 1980'S (so thin its like not having one at all). The staff was fine and the location is right on the main strip by the port but other then that the hotel is run like a frat house people yelling inside all night and walls are so thin that at 8;30 you hear everything in the hallway and I booked on the quiet side

The location of the hotel almost makes up for the small room and so-so staff. I had to keep switching the breaker on and off so the electricity in the room would work, but the bathroom was nice and very new, and the room was fine as a place to crash after full days of sight seeing. Far too expensive for what the room was though, barely wide enough for the 2 twin beds, even by European hotel standards.

GREAT location, clean and friendly but they did not have working wifi the entire four days I was there. Even if they did, don't expect to get a strong enough connection on the fourth floor. The hotel staff was nice and recommended using the internet at their sister site, International Hotel just a couple blocks away which provide free working wifi and computer stations. I had a street-side room on the 4th floor and now know what all the other reviews were talking about as far as the loud noises going on until 5am! However, when the balcony door was shut, I didn't hear a sound so just make sure you get one of the rooms with the sound-proof windows and you'll be fine! As it goes with other hotels in Europe, there was no ice machine available. I wasn't even able to call the front desk from the phone.

We were on a two day sightseeing trip in Barcelona, where this was a good central location.

Perfect location for vacation. I recommend this hotel for every body. Is just wonderful.

Bottom Line, If the room had a problem they couldn't fix it. Our room lacked a working safe. After stating they would send someone up in 5 to 10 minutes. then with pursistant questioning they admitted it wouldn't get fixed. I requested a room change they informed me that was not possible. I witnessed similar problems with 2 other hotel customers so it's there standard operating practice. Besides that the hotel was clean, staff was friendly and the location was good. 2 warnings PICK-Pockets are rampent and some nights Bands will play in the sidestreets next to the hotel until 4:00 a.m. so don't expect a peaceful night of sleep!

The hotel was very elegant with marble floors etc. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very large rooms for a European hotel. Great location on La Rambla. The bed was somewhat uncomfortable, but not too bad. The only drawback was that the street it is on (La Rambla) is very loud until about 4:00 - 5:00 am which makes sleeping very difficult.

This hotel is right in the heart of Barcelona's Las Ramblas, almost equidistant from the Columbus Memorial and Placa de Catalunya. Very conveniently located for access to all tourist buses and a number of iconic attractions like La Boqueria market, the Cathedral, Placa Reial, La Pedrera, Casa Batllo, etc. The common areas and lobby are beautiful but the rooms are quite old and tired. Basic amenities are included but no irons are provided and unless you bring your own you have to pay dearly for laundry/ ironing services. The pillows are quite odd, paper thin, long and narrow. You definitely need to request extras to sleep comfortably. I had seen before booking that people complained about the noise from the lively street. We had no such issues and found the room to be rather quiet with the exception of housekeepers who were virtually yelling in the hallways early each morning. Another oddity was the bathroom. There were no surfaces in the shower to place soap, shampoo or anything else and the shower was only partially enclosed by a glass panel so there was a flood every time you took a shower. Not a huge deal but I wouldn't call it convenient. Light/power outlets inside the room were controlled by your room key which had to be inserted in a slot near the door. Maybe this is common in Europe but I had never seen it before so it took me a minute to figure out. When you left the room and took your key the light & power went off automatically after a few minutes. While I realize that this is economical and saves energy, you can't leave anything charging in the room like a cell phone or camera batteries. Overall this hotel was worth the money for its location, otherwise amenities were just OK.

Location, Location, Location! The location is right in the center of Las Ramblas, if this is what you are looking for; and I thought that was what I wanted. We stayed here four nights. It is an easy walk from the town ceter. Take the blue bus from El Prat Airport to the town center (less than 5 Euros) ask directions at the tourist information center, short walk to hotel (every one rolls their luggage through the streets). The hotel is very old and undergoing remodeling. The rooms are spartan but clean (no bugs). No vending machines or ice machines. Staff are friendly and most speak English. I do not have any complaints about the hotel. You get what you pay for! Now for the Location. There are people running up and down Las Ramblas street all night, and I mean until about 05:30 AM. They are yelling, screaming, singing, laughing, playing drums and horns, firecrackers, sirens and the trash trucks start picking up at about 01:00 AM. And this is not just on weekends or holidays, but everynight, and all night! The noise echoes down the side streets like giant canyons. It is actually quieter during he day. This is no fault of this hotel it is just the nature of this street. This is a two star hotel with a one star bump for being able to say you stayed on Las Ramblas.

The hotel is literally right in the middle of Las Ramblas, with bars, shops, cafes and restaurants surrounding it. The building itself is old and has character, but has clearly been renovated and is beautiful and clean. Before my stay, I'd read other reviews that the rooms were small, which is true, but they had everything we needed - decent size closet, spacious bathroom, television, hairdryer, safe, bed, etc. I would definitely stay here again for the great location and comfortable room.
