Recent guest reviews

Arrived on Friday to Hotel Retrome a bit early. Room would be ready at check-in time. No problem, was offered a complimentary cup of coffee, and enjoyed the great atmosphere in the cafe. The hostess and host where friendly and helpful. The room was great, clean and modern. All necessities where at our disposal, including good coffee, a nice view and a perfect air conditioner. Breakfast was tasty and had some positive surprises (I won’t tell). Overall a great stay!

Had a fantastic stay at the Retrome in the center of Barcelona. Charming and cosy hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Staff provides a city map and good recommendations for activities/restaurant/bars. Spacious room was great with very comfortable bed and rainfall shower. Highly recommend to book the breakfast as it makes the start of the day very pleasant! Hope to get back soon.

Location - proximity to Metro (Girona) - staff - welcome and advice - ambience - comfort - facilities - price - and city All perfect (Trip Advisor app wants me to say more - I like to keep things succinct)

This hotel was booked based on photos from a website that were old, authentic spain in nature. This is what we were looking for. After several days in Spain, we arrived at this place. We were immediately drawn to the mid-century, cool, hip 60's vibe. We loved the restaurant/lounge area where there is a record player and records, cool furniture and a full bar. We were taken to our room which was an amazing hip, cool, fabulous room with a great balcony. The staff could not have possibly been more welcoming. We feel as though we became friends and I truly miss them...especially Tom and Lizzy. We were busy touring Barcelona but did enjoy the breakfast buffet daily and also one dinner, and drinks in the lounge. They also serve amazing coffee which we loved. The location is great. Very easy to get everywhere by train or walking. Now...the only thing I want to say (and it wasn't bad for us), if you are booking here and want old, authentic, Spain, be sure they know that. We took such pure delight in the 1960's vibe that I completely forgot this is the place I booked for that authenticity. We learned while there, there are 2 parts of this hotel - an old, authentic part and the new, 60's vibe part. We did get a tour of the old part and quickly remembered this is exactly what we booked. It was our scrambled tourist brain that had forgotten that, until we saw it. My husband and I can not speak highly enough of this place. I am only writing this little story about the old and new so others booking, will be aware of that. The employees truly care about making their guests as comfortable as possible and we just simply felt as though we were part of the family. Please consider this as your place to stay in Barcelona. We wish the place all the best with future bookings and guests.

We booked this hotel based on online reviews and photos. When we checked in, we were delighted to find that the hotel is furnished with retro furniture. The young staff is ultra efficient, multinational, warm, and English-speaking. The room does not come with free breakfast but they give you a complimentary buffet breakfast the first time. After that, the breakfast comes at a very affordable price, Wifi is free although somewhat slow. The hotel is a good location for walking tours of Barcelona. Restaurants and shops are abundant nearby. We strongly recommend this hotel.

A brilliant place for someone who does not want the bland hotel experience. It sort of straddles a hotel come apartment come house feel It is unique and quirky A great location for exploring on foot or a tube near by The staff where so friendly and helpful The breakfast was lovely and had a real leisurely feel to it The only down side would be the room we stayed in was very small but we were rarely in it, and had a lovely living area just outside our door and a lovely wee sunny terrace. I would definitely recommend and would stay again

My husband and I stayed at Retrome Barcelona for 3 nights and would highly recommend it. Highlights include hotel design, incredibly friendly staff, cool cafe with a great breakfast and very good location for those who want to explore.

I happened upon this hotel on an online blog while researching accommodation in Barcelona - I am so glad I found this gem! Everything was just perfect for our two day Barcelona break. The location is ideal for exploring the city by train, bus or metro. Sagrada Familia is a short walk as is Passieg de Gracia where we picked up the Bus Turistic on both days. Staff were more than helpful and the hotel is tasteful and unique. Complimentary drinks on arrival (and another at our convenience) along with our complimentary delicious breakfast was very much appreciated. Thank you Retrome - we will be back!

A great place to stay in Barcelona with super friendly staff!! Overall, it's a small hotel with cool vintage design, with (it seems) original retro items in both the rooms and the public areas. Loved to sit outside on the small patio outside my room in the morning with a cup of coffee- a nice start of our day. Metro station is just around the corner, but we would usually walk to most of the places as everything is fairly close to the hotel. Would definitely stay again!

Friendly welcoming staff helping with recommendations, great central location and chill atmosphere. Metro around the corner taking you to the beach. A rich breakfast buffet + comfy beds, all you need for a nice getaway.
