Recent guest reviews

This hotel was right in the middle of things. It was a fantastic location and very easy to get around to see the sites in Barcelona. I would definitely stay there again.

rialto was good generally but bed cleaning was not enough...

Hotel Met expectations. Good for the price. Overall good experience. Bring your own soap and shampoo

It was good. Location perfect. Clean room and stuffs. But, no REFRIGERATOR. That make me and my fruits sad. Anyway, fine Hotel. Thanks.

When we arrived at the Rialto, they could not "find" our reservation, despite my printout of info showing confirmation numbers and pre-payment. They insisted we had to contact our travel agent as it was not their fault but they had no info or payment in their system. It was only upon my perseverance and refusal to leave their front desk that they continued to talk to some central office and got it resolved (in about 30 minutes). Subsequent interactions with hotel personnel were fine, but those first moments were less than positive. Good location and basic rooms and amenities. EXCELLENT free walking tour offered daily there at the nearby TravelBar. Duncan was wonderful!

The staff was helpful and booked another night for us on staurday that was at a better rate than what we had the previous nights. The room was small but fit our needs and the Hotel is in a great location relative to the downtown area.

The room was tiny and did not have an iron or hair dryer. We had to put down a deposit to get those two items. Similar to other people's reviews - the hotel is almost like a maze, it's easy to get lost in the small, dimly lit hallways. However, the location was perfect, and the hotel staff was very accomodating. They answered all of our questions, and we had a lot of them. Definitely don't expect luxury, or to have peace and quiet in the morning. But I would go to this hotel again in a heartbeat!

We reserved a room for one night so we could look for a less expensive hotel. Our friends booked it over the internet. At least we had a room. Our friends reservation was not found, so they had no room, and the hotel staff flatly refused to help them find a room. We asked for a receipt for the room charges, and they refused to give us one. In forty years of traveling, we have never run into that. The room was hot, tiny, and uncomfortable, but clean. They were helpful with the luggage. Anywhere in this area of Barcelona, rooms facing the street are particularly noisy except from 4 AM to 6AM, primarily because the streets are narrow, and surrounded by tall, stone buildings. It's an echo chamber of the first order. Even normal conversation on the street is loud. But, you couldn't stay in a more intersting area. Hundreds of restaurants and shops, the tourist bureau a few yards away, and enough history to please anyone. We ended up staying at the Gran Hotel Barcino just down the street. Much larger, more comfortable room, better service, and 29 Euro cheaper. Both hotels are near the Placa de Sant Jaume. Hotel Barcino corporate web site:www.gargallohotels.es. Learn some basic Spanish before you go. Very few people in Barcelona speak English, even at the airport.
