Rialto3.0 out of 5.0

Although the rooms are not the largest they are perfectly adequate for what we needed. They were clean and the beds were comfy. The only downside was the sink in the bathroom which was not easy to use being very shallow. The reception staff could not have been better, they helped us with every small problem we had and even contacted the airport transport firm for us to find our pick up time. The hotel is a short walk from the markets, metro and the sea front.
Me and my son visited Barcelona and stayed in nice older hotel Rialto. Receptioner was very kind, room was nice and clean, I loved "walk in" bathroom. Everything was clean and cosy. View was nice on the street, where you could see all small balconies and heard a heartbeat of Catalon people. I loved their passion! Reastaurant was in the basement, guest was surrounded with nice art work since very known Catalan artist Joan Miro was born... I loved the spirit of some other time in the basement, especially since it was covered with nice brick architecture. Staff was very very nice and I loved 5 min walking to the nearest subway which rookcme only 1 station to the most beautiful sand beach with many bars including one special with -30 degrees Celsius inside. Nice refreshment after +40 C on the sun all day. La Rambla was just arround the corner and many pubs and shops also. I hope I will go there again some day. In the same city, in the same hotel Rialto😊😊
We stayed at the Rialto for 3 nights after a Princess Cruise At best I would describe it as a overpriced backpackers hostel. The room was bare basic,no coffee/tea in room facilities. Paid for a queen bed and got 2 made up singles Air conditioner worked intermittently We had to pay 2 euros a night for a safety box key. Breakfast was adequate If you are booking airport transfers do not use City Transfers UK they expected us to walk 2 km in rain to a location we tried to find the day before and could'nt even with locals giving direction.Paid 35 euros for a cab in the end
Out of the way, small and cheap (except for the cost to stay there) with rubbish facilities. Wafer thin bath towels. Cheap toilet paper and toiletries,tiny double bed and dust everywhere noisy and dirty. Staff were no help whatsoever and the idea of this place being even one star is risible. It was a massive disappointment for us. Usual stuff also regarding no coffee or tea making facilities. Cost us Almost £110 per room (we needed two for an overnight stay
Stayed in the hotel Rialto Barcelona lastweek-end would not recommend this hotel as a place too stay. Room very small and there was a smell entering the room coming from the drains not pleasant. There were 2 lifts only one worked the time we were there nobody was working to fix lift that was out of action. On leaving Sunday morning to catch flight home the lift we were in broke down we were in there for over an hour ' panic l have a flight to catch'. When checking out we asked if they would help pay towards a taxi as it was a bit late now too get the bus taxi is about 20euro's . We were abruptly told under no circumstances would we be given money and l was waved away like a silly school girl bad management.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Hotel Rialto. The room was small, but well appointed and we were fortunate to get a street view from Room 418/4th floor. The front desk staff were helpful and the resident restaurant ... Miro, on the lower level was outstanding. The hotel is well situated in the midst of Las Ramblas and convenient for shopping, historic buildings and great restaurants. It was a 10-minute walk from Plaza Catalunya. We arrived about a week after the terrible attack on innocent civilians and the crowds in the city and particularly in our neighbourhood were huge. There were shrines and vigils every day ... a poignant reminder of those who lost their lives, but also a tribute to the kindness of strangers. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this Hotel. It is good value for your money.
We were to friends looking for a cheap sunny weekend in Barcelona and thanks to this hotel we got it! We wanted it nice, clean, without cockroaches and silent if possible and of course our own wc/shower! After reading many of the reviews, we were a bit worried, but we also found people who had had just what we wanted. All you have to do is to make sure you get it! Ask for a room in the upper floor and for a twin bed (bigger space). Our to nights were silent, and we had a room facing the courtyard. It was clean, air conditioning working properly and no bugs! The staff in the bar gave us lots of ice to cool our bottle of cava too. So nice! The area is of course perfect, right in the middle of everything. Walking distance to el born, el raval, the beach etc.
Excellent location, comfortable rooms. Breakfast was surprisingly good - our expectations were not high, but it was good value. 12 people in 7 rooms - varying ages - all seemed happy with the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Close to Las Ramblas, Placa Reial, metro shops bars and restaurants.
I was quite shocked to see how small the room was and very disappointed that there weren't any street views, only walls of other buildings. There was a Lift to the floor but then you had to drag your luggage down about 8 stairs and up another 8 or so to get to room. Not good when you've just flown for almost 24 hours! Breakfast was lovely and the Staff were friendly. Location is good as it's about a 5 minute or so walk to Las Ramblas. Lots of charming allies to discover, full of wonderful surprises, cafés etc.
This 3 stars hotel has a perfect location, close to metro stations and bus stops, in the middle of everything, and surrounded with nice coffee shops and restaurants, rooms are very simple and small, service is fair, breakfast is good, choose first floors because the only have 2 elevators and it takes time to go up and down.
