Rialto3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
An impressive entrance gives a great impression, the rooms are a little tired but on the whole this is a great place to stay for a few days. Only minutes walk from Las Ramblas and even closer to Plaza Sant Jaume where many of the recent Demos have taken place. Breakfast was standard European Buffet with a wide choice, the breakfast room is quite amazing as it's in the cellar with much exposed stone and vaulted ceilings. Bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. Two good beer bars are close by, Kaelderkold and Craft Barcelona.
Basic old charming hotel ,breakfast is basic ( don't expect full english ) clean ,staff very friendly & helpful . The hotel is ideally situated very central to everything. Great bars on the same street .
Lovely hotel! Right in the centre and you cannot fault the location at all as everything you need is outside your front door! City hall to the right and and Las Ramblas at the bottom of the street to the left. Our room was clean and comfortable and that's all that matters. Yes it seems dated but that is just the character of the area you are staying in. Our room - 107 - view was of the alley so no sights to see but as we were not in the room a lot and really only used it to sleep in then it was not an issue to us. Staff friendly and helpful!!! Would recommend and when we come back to Barcelona we would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
The title says it all. The location of the hotel is great in the center of Barcelona. The rooms are avarage with good beads but belov avarage decoration. Don't eat breakfast here - especially not if you like fruit for breakfast. It is old, bad and not worth eating at all.
As so many people do talk of the excellent location of Rialto, that's first and foremost in my mind. For a three star I found the place pleasantly better than I expected. Our room was number 325 , a large twin room . Decor was what I would class as olde worlde, having said that also clean . Decent large quality shower. We don't spend much time in any hotel if weather is thankfully nice, but we were happy with our stay.
Stayed here with husband and son before and after our cruise for several nights. Breakfast was surprisingly good. Our triple room was actually 2 rooms. Big rooms though a bit tired...but still clean and roomy. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit. Pic is view from room facing alley.
The decor is a bit dated, but the hotel is in a great location, a short walk from the Ramblas and with plenty of choice of restaurants nearby. Although in a central spot my room was quiet so no problem sleeping. Bed comfortable, room clean. Extra change for using the safe in the room, EUR2 per day. The reception staff were very helpful as I had my wallet stolen at the airport train station. BE CAREFUL ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT!
We recently visited this hotel on a 3 night break and I have to say we were very disappointed with the standard, which is marketed as medium priced accommodation and of a good category. The hotel has the distinct feel of a hostel, which begins when you enter reception, which is dated. The decor throughout the hotel is dark, drab and unappealing. Our room No 408 had no view, only that of an open shaft from the roof to the basement, and was dominated by a large pipe, without a safety barrier. Again the decor was dated and the room had limited space. The following day we changed room to No.407, which had a street view and again it was small. Although it was an improvement, the room was small and dated, the shower was dark with a drain in the middle and the dressing table was worn away at one end. The rooms were accessed by a narrow dark corridor with very minimal lighting. The restaurant and the bar were in the basement and again these were dark with no ambience or appeal. I could go on and to summarise, this hotel requires a total refurbishment and should not be recommended to guests as that of an establishment with a good standard.
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😊😊
