Petit Palace Boquería Garden

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location; hotel has two buildings. In case room is assigned in 2nd building, it's very inconvenient due to difficulty transporting luggage. Hotel staff was accommodating re: maps, places to eat around, taxi to airport, etc. Would highly recommend although prefer room assignment in building 1.

Very near the Market de Bouqueria and La Ramblas. Very near to the Cruise port (Port Vell)

Love the scent in the lobby as you walkin off the street. Bicycles were in great shape and free to use. They are a great way to see the city in the morning before 10:00am, when the pedestrian crowd starts getting crowded. Hotel staff was pleasant and accommodating. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Of the 4 hotels we stayed in on our trip to Spain. This hotel was the best overall.

Like the title says the rooms were very loud both from street noise as well as inter room noise. We could hear water in pipes al night.

This hotel is on an old narrow street just off La Rambla. It is walking distance to the harbor and just about everything else. The area is known for pick pockets and it is not advisable to wear any jewelry at any time of day. That is the same all over the city.

Overall this was a pleasant stay in a prim location. Hotel staff are very helpful and friendly. The hotel's garden and patio are gems not typically found. But, some of the hotel's services are a little uneven. For example the breakfast was modest and not special at all, the room I had was not equipped with a tub and the sophisticated shower system did not work but I was, with the help of the front desk person, to at least get a hand held shower to put out water. Room cleanup did not provide the same number of towels each day

The location of this hotel and the access to internet service in the room were the only things I liked about thie hotel. The room needs a lot of improvement ! The furnitures were falling apart and the room wasn't even cleaned everyday. During the six days of staty, the bedsheets were never changed. If you want to sleep at night, this hotel is not for you. I wasn't able to sleep till 3 in the morning because of noises from outside. Make sure to bring your own garbage bags with you becuase there is not a garbage can in the bathroom.

Great little hotel just off La Ramblas. The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet.

First of all the location of this Hotel is excellent, we were at few steps from the Ramblas, a very bussy street in Barcelona, however no disturbance to us when we wanted to rest, it was nice to have the option to have everything you need at walking distance. We were able to take a tour bus and go sightseeing as well as walk to the beach and swim in the Mediterranean ocean. We had a great time. The first impresion of the Hotel is not that great, it's clean but it could be better, it's an old building with moderm decor. The staff were helpful when we needed them.

Payed for 4 star hotel but got a Hostel instead! Service was terrible from the moment we tried to check-in. Went on Cruise and stayed there with 6 other couples for three days. There were probably 20 other guests waiting in the lobby trying to get rooms while only 2 people were "working" the desk. Rooms weren't ready and the response was call your travel agent if you want to cancel. The lobby ceiling was leaking right by the reception area so you had to be careful otherwise you got splashed. Rooms varied in cleanliness, ours was ok, but our friends complained about bugs, dirty sheets, smelly towels, leaking ceiling, and I kid you not 1 room had blood all over the walls in bathroom. We actually put up a do not disturb sign on our door the entire time b/c we were worried they would give us dirty towels or sheets. Very noisy, you can hear people yelling in the alley and slamming doors all night. Hallways are really dark and creepy since walls are black and lights are motion sensored with very low wattage bulbs which have a 2 second delay before coming on. So if you leave your room it's pitch black and even after the hallway lights come on vision is 40ft at best. Elevator was slow and forget about taking the stairs as that is where they keep their cleaning carts, talk about fire hazard. Only thing it had going for it was location but staying on Las Ramblas is way over-rated as cabs are super cheap and they have a really good metro system. The staff was in-attentive and rude. Another couple stayed about a mile north of us at the Eurostar BCN and payed much less and had a way better experience and their Hotel was nice and felt safe. We actually spent more time there then our own hotel.

This hotel have no customer service. The beds are hard as a rock and sheets and towel are dirty. I do not recommend this to anyone. You are better off booking a room near the big square near Mandarin Oriental. Much cheaper and less traffic. My friend stayed at BCN Design and it was super nice for a lot less.

The hotel is small, but very clean and modern. It is situated in the middle of Las Ramblas between Boqueria and Ramblas 78 putting you right in the middle of the action. Staff leaves early in the afternoon, so make sure to get towels, shampoos, extras early to make sure you have a clean room once you come back from a day out.

They did not have an ice dispencer machine that you have access too, you had to ask for it and they would give you and ice bucket that is the smallest thing I ever saw so that you'd have to ask several times, and they did not have washing machines so it was a good thing that we took enough to get us through.

An interesting high tech hotel that unfortunately fell short on service but overall not a bad place to stay. IsT is a relatively high style hotel leaning in the direction of the W chain. The hotel is situated in the tonic quarter pedestrian zone and quite hand to most of that area's sights. The hotel is clean, seem secure and it has a lovely garden. But, no bar? Also no parking provision and the front desk staff were less than helpful with such requests like restaurant recommendations, slow front desk service, and parking suggestions. Breakfast was ok but not great I spoke to a managerial type about some of the high tech features of the hote room abut he seemed to be aware of the problems but not terribly concerned about them The bath shower managed to soak much of the bathroom floor - more style than functionality in the bath We are not likely to use this hotel again but qonly because we have experience with something better like the Hote Colon or perhaps the Olivia

Furniture falling apart, shower water flows into bath room, amenities mediocre, take or buy your own amenities. New blankets needed, or Blankets need to be sanitized. Understaffed. Overpriced. 2 star maximum rating.

Spent 2 nights at this inflated 4 star rated hotel where we booked a deluxe room only to find it very sparsely and cheaply furnished and finished. No cupboard or drawers. Minimal amenities and a lot of hype. Young hard working staff but invisible or non exsistent management. The pluses were its situation off the Ramblas and its decent breakfast buffet. Way overpriced for what it offered.

we use this hotel for pre-cruise one day stay. Very good location, close to center, few people around, internet and computer in the room, great for notification of relatives and searching city sites

air condition doesn't work well

The hotel was nice, but the staff were all DIVAS. They were rude and didn't help at all. The wi-fi was also a totaly failure! It worked our first night then went out and didn't ever get fixed, all the while the hotel staff just told us their "internet guy" was coming tomorrow. The shower looks great in the picutres but has very poor water pressure! Overall, the location was the best. Go to the bar across the alley called Cheers!
