Renaissance Barcelona Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our room had an intense smell of mold. Neither the front desk nor management cared one bit. Even as a top-tier Marriott member, no difference was shown to an acceptable situation, no matter how hard we tried or how many people we spoke to. It is unfortunate that a world brand in a good location could be so poorly managed. Go elsewhere while in Barcelona.

Well designed room, with all the amenities you would need for a short break. Breakfast was varied although not the best I have had, it was sufficient to start the day off. Dinner was provided on our last night, that was awesome! Staff were pleasant in the main, did see an incident of frustration as I stayed there with some Thai ladies who were not used to sharing a bed. Very few twin rooms in this hotel. Must come back to use the facilities lots to do in Barcelona and a weekend isn't enough time.

Great location with walking distance of Casa Batllo and lots of shops. Staff was friendly. Rooftop bar has great views. The room was on the smaller side and the bathroom shape awkward. The staff was friendly.

Stayed at this property on Marriott points (lifetime platinum). Room was small but was comfortable. Location was excellent and within walking distance to top attractions or the metro station. No lounge here as many others have noted, so you received breakfast certificates upon check-in. This benefit is likely limited to Marriott gold/platinums. There isn't much negative to say about this property, though nothing will likely blow you away. The rooms are on the smaller side, even with an "upgrade" which we received at check in. The location is wonderful and is a definite plus for the property. If you're paying for the room there may be better values, though may not get the complimentary breakfast which was good and on par with other international Marriott's. We also received a half bottle of wine when arriving which was a nice touch. Overall if you're staying a few days in town this certainly is a good choice. Was also looking at the cotton signature hotel but did not end up staying since it was going to require an extra €200 euro. Picture is view from the room.

Location at the heart of the center, very comfortable room and bathroom. Friendly staff, efficient, bar, restaurant, great location. Care-free, everything you need as a business traveller. This is a Marriott group hotel so do not forget to use your customer card

This hotel is in the Centre of Barcelona. The rooftop bar give you great views of the cathedral, mountains and other attractions of Barcelona. It has a small pool where you can lay out or take a dip if it gets too hot. The nite I was there, they did a BBQ and the music was good. They have a DJ every Wednesday nite. Bier 5 Euro. The chambre are a welcoming site. This is an older building but the design & architect teams did a great job. The chambres are small but Great use of space allotted...for example their is a full length mirror on the back of the chambre door. The bathroom is done in Marble from ceiling to floor w/Teal Green-Aqua marble. The vanity is a 1 inch thick piece of glass holding the sink and their is a full length mirror behind the vanity from ceiling to floor so the allusion is that the bathroom is bigger than it is. I tired room service, my burger was cooked medium and was delicious. The chambre layout is good with the bed in the centre of the chambre, round carpet underneath, Two separate wardrobes, fridge but no minibar, desk and large flatscreen on the wall facing the bed. I was in Room 412. The only negative things I can mention is the Desk....its made out of glass & metal with a metal bar directly at our knee cap so you hit you knees every time if you push up to the desk. The curtains are not blackout curtains so the sun does come thru & it can be brite in your chambre as the sun is intense in Barcelona. Finally, do not depend on a wake up call. Reception simply said that their were "too many" wake up calls scheduled and they couldn't complete them all.....that's call an AUTOMATIC WAKE UP service.....most hotels have them. HELLO! Whatever you do, DO NOT ORDER the Eggs Benedict w/Salmon or Eggs Benedict as far as that goes. Arrived with cold bread, some sauce that was not Hollandaise sauce . Someone needs to teach these guyz how to make the sauce and serve it HOT. Breakfast buffet has a large selection of items from salmon to Patata cake. Over, its a good hotel. Central, modern, clean and personnel are good.

Check in was professional, smooth and friendly. The Executive, Guest Room, 1 King was big. Bathroom was big. Bed was super comfortable. Windows kept street noise out. Wifi was sufficiently fast, especially compared to the other hotels we stayed at in Catalonia. Could not see room door from bed: a plus for those of us who are distracted by light from under the door at night Color palette was subtle and tasteful— Rooftop bar had very nice views of the city and good drinks. There was a large convention going on nearby, with lots of attendees staying at the hotel. The hotel was very busy bit did not feel overcrowded most of the time. The exceptions as a Sunday breakfast, but the staff kept things moving with no long waits. Hotel lobby was quite large and had a lobby bar and multiple seating areas. Service at the lobby bar (CUIT) was my favorite aspect of the hotel. The two gentlemen bartenders were very efficient and knowledgable about local/regional brews and wines and places to buy Catalonian food products to take home. When I return to Barcelona, even if I don’t stay at the Renaissance, I will stop in for drinks. I don’t usually stay in luxury properties, with their expense account clientele, finding them too stuffy, but the Renaissance was not stuffy. This hotel was a very enjoyable place to stay.

If you want to organize a business meeting or seminar in this hotel, just avoid it ! The service is poor, food quality is poor and slow and rooms are not properly cleaned. This only positive is the location but you will find better hotels close by. To what I observed, this is an hotel for tourist tours...and that's probably why they don't care about average business people . My first bad experience in many many years...

Great hotel in the heart of Barcelona. Easy walking to many local attractions. Rooms are modern and nice. Ask for a high floor room looking toward La Familia. Views at night are great. Le Terrace bar is good again wth great night scapes.

Renaissance Hotel is a great choice when staying in Barcelona. Only a few meters away from Passeig de Gracia it's a great base for exploring the beautiful city. The room is not very big but beds are comfortable. Water pressure and temp in the bathroom are satisfactory. Service was fast and courteous. Also enjoyed free breakfast as part of rewards. I liked the breakfast choices and the big windows overlooking the street. AC can be freezing cold though in the bedroom. Highly recommended!
