TRYP Barcelona Apolo Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Second visit to Barcelona. Stayed in 2 hotels on previous trip. This hotel was by far the best. Added breakfast when checking in. Our room was very clean and bed comfortable/ Breakfast was above expectations.

The hotel location was good with easy access to the subway, Las Ramblas and the waterfront. However, the room was dated and needed some work.

TRYP Apollo was directly next door to the the subway station so it was easy to get to multiple locations and get back easily. The staff was courteous and helpful and spoke English (I was worried as my Spanish isn't fluent!). The bed was just OK, nothing special, but the room was clean and the free wifi was definitely a perk. Close to parks and shopping. I would stay there again on another trip to Barcelona!

I had a very pleasant one night stay at the Tryp Barcelona Hotel, before boarding a cruise ship the following day. The service at the front desk was very friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. The hot and cold breakfast buffet, which I paid extra for at a reasonable cost, was excellent. The Hotel is located a few blocks away from the beautiful La Rambla street in the old picturesque part of the city. It is also located a short walking distance from the waterfront and monument to Columbus.

Hotel location was perfect for us. The hotel is next to Parl Le station. L2 will take you to Sagada Famillia. 10 min walk to La Rambla.

Perfect it doesnt get any better , enjoyed barcelona while staying in this hotel

I loved the hotel , they were very helpful when i forgot some important documents in the room after i checked out they were able to help my friend who was still in the hotel and let him get the documents , The Room was clean , one of the reasons why i enjoyed my trip to barcelona !!!

For husband and me, this was perfectly located, not too far from the Port and not too far from the old part of the city, and yet fairly quiet for a city center hotel. We walked to everything.

A little dated in the decor. Not as posh as it's made out to be. Good value with the discount but nothing special.

hotel was well located near center and connection to underground. a/c was not great and electric in room went out twice one night. staff was less than helpful. spoke English very well when i checked in and when a problem came up language skills seem to disappear. overall a good experience and was good value at the price i got.

Decent hotel right across from the metra stop. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful.

Almost everything scored 'A': Room size, style, bath, cleanliness, breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, location, cost, BUT, a few basics were missing: Needs 2 comfortable lounge chairs in room,, more than 2 English channels (BBC News and another news type) on TV, an A/C that really cools the room well. Freshened carpet in high traffic areas. All in all, a nice place to stay if you don't like paying a bigger price, I suppose, but such a shame that a few details cold keep it from getting top score.

Excellent location, Metro, bus, shops, local restaurant right at hotel door. Close to La Rambla

Service excellent. Restaurant excellent with varieties. Right at the subway entrance. Walk a short distance to Harbour Front.

We enjoyed our stay. The room was large, bathroom was large. The room was clean. We had a nice view of the city.Free wifi. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was great. We could walk to any area. The metro is on the same block. Taxi were right by the hotel. The only issue we had was the street noise at night. A lot of things were going on and I would not feel comfortable or safe going out at night in that area.

The hotel is close to the cruise ship Terminal North but not close to Terminal A, B or C. There is a shuttle bus to go from Terminal North to the other 3. The receptionists were not so friendly nor helpful. Wi Fi was free but it took forever to send an email with an attachment. The carpet in the room was a bit old but the air conditioning was very good. Although we booked and asked for a non-smoking room, they gave us a smoking room initially. We were not so happy and immediately asked for a change.

Their mattresses are uncomfortable and their breakfast is overpriced, but that's standard for Barcelona. There weren't enough staff to handle all the guests, so we spent significant time waiting for them. That said, it's an inexpensive hotel in a nice location practically on top of the metro station. If you're used to European hotels, this is a good place to stay.

The hotel is nice but lacks maintenance as the sink does not drain and the towels are old. More seriously, the staff does not seem to care as one of the porters lost one of our friend's bag that contains a computer and some valuable jewelry under his care and the staff seem so casual about it. The police was called in but it was very unsatisfactory.

The location couldn't be any better- right at a convenvient Metro line, close to the water and the Gothic quater, and lots of restaurants. No hair conditioner or iron, though. And the desk staff was often overwhelmed and it took a long time to get to the front of the line. The A/C worked really well, very quiet room on the back of the building. Internet worked well. Breakfast was lovely. We would definitely stay there again.
