The location was fantastic.
We liked the convience of the location and the style of the hotel. We had two single beds instead of a double.Corridors were a bit too dark.
The location was ideal for access to the metro (within 50m), restaurants, bars and tourists sites. None, everything as expected.
Modern, relaxed hotel, easy access to the Ramblas and other tourist attractions.
The location of the hotel was second to none. There were signs for a Bar but couldn't find one.
the location and the free wi-fi computers in the rooms were super.
The room was comfortable, clean and not what I imagined having read previous reviews, the staff on reception were very helpful and the location was perfect. The residents bar did not appear to be staffed at any point during our stay and the service during breakfast was less than helpful, however these are minor points and would not stop me recommending the hotel.
The middle garden or terrace is really nice for chillout Hotel provides a free bike room size are quite spacious Rooms looking at the garden has amazing view in the day time Staff at reception are vey helpful Breakfast selection is very limited and its not hygienically taken care of Some of the catering staff are really rude and some and very kind and helpful The TV selection is extremely bad, so don't even think of setting in your room
Proximity to main sightseeing places. Ability to enjoy walk around and along La Ramblas. Close to grocery bazaar (good option for delicious low-cost dinner: selection of cheese + several slices of prosciutto + freshly backed bread in nearby bakery + bottle of good table wine). Shopping lover will appreciate boutiques along La Ramblas and L'Corte Ingles Department Store across from Catalunya Sq. Offered breakfast was not bad (quality and value). Laptops in rooms and free internet access. Proximity to LaRamblas has negative side: too noisy late into night. Rooms are bit small for family with 2 kids. Beds have metal cases and make horrible noise when anyone turns around at night. In the bathroom we had just a shower with no proper tub; thus when taking shower water would be all around the floor. Bathrooms lack hooks, thus one ends up leaving all the change clother on the toilet seat.
Garden, location rooms and cafeteria are not clean enogh
Very cclean room No kettle in room. No hot water for shower on the last day.
good location overprice, poor room facilities, room was cleansed poorly
location is perfect the rooms are small but comfortable enough
The location could not have been better. The staff was quite helpful and spoke English very well. The hotel was expensive. The location accounted for much of this, but at these prices, the hotel should have been even nicer.
clean room . the hotel has a great location. we had to pay for a connection for electric.
Perfect location, extremely clean rooms and public areas, delicious breakfast buffet, amazing staff and very comfortable beds. Occasional road noise
location and cleanliness of the room
I liked the design of the room, its comfort and all the facilities they had in it, breakfast, information pack and maps of most visited attractions in Barcelona and around it hand out during check-in. Also, the location of the hotel itself as it is situated in Las Ramblas.
Reception staff were very helpful, the men especially, the first one we met on arrival was not very good !, everyone else was very good, cleanliness was excellent, would definitely stay again next time we visit Barcelona. On 2 Reception staff on arrival were not very efficient and tried to charge me for the deposit I had already paid.
Location is excellent.
The best of Aparthotel Gutenberg is without any doubt the location
good location, just of La Ramba, well lit area.
Good location,nice staff,clean&well equipped room,
Staff very helpful.Provided good breakfast..also had good internet service.Good location for sightseeing and shopping...convenient
The location The cleaniness, breakfast too crowded
The price, excellent location and very friendly and helpful reception staff. Rooms can be a bit noisy as no carpets in rooms or corridors.
Helpful staff, basic accommodation but well priced breakfast buffet
pleasant staff, location in the city center, good breakfast incl in price for room cleanliness of the room, esp. bathroom
The Location Nothing
perfect location to explore central Barcelona, but very quiet for a good nights rest the bar was shut for a few weeks!
Location great. Staff were helpful and friendly. Beds were eall comfortable. Shower good. Instead of a double bed there were 2 singles put together, this was fine, except they were on wheels and kept on rolling across the room. Great if you want to rearrange the room though.
Excellent location on a very quiet street, excellent beds, warm room
The room was clean with adequate space for 2 and the bathroom clean and comfortable with a tab. The hotel was on a quiet street but very close to the Ramblas as well. Close to the aerobus stop at placa Catalunya. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was nice but kind of expensive (16,2 euros)
It's location was ideal, two blocks from the Barri Gothic, the Plaza de Catalunya, and the Ramblas. Despite its being in the city, it was very quiet in our room.
great location but bathroom is old, emitting sewer smell
Quiet, near Ramla, very good service at reception desk.
Beds are particularly comfortable and reception staff very helpful. Would be improved by provision of a small bar in the seating area on the ground floor, adjacent to the Reception area.
Excellent location, very friendly staff, my room was clean and relatively spacious The price is relatively high for the age and furniture of this hotel
Very central but quiet
location, quality of rooms
Location, room decor, room size. Expensive breakfast :)
Perfect location, right in the centre of old town and a few steps from cathedral. Great price for lovely 4 star hotel. large rooms, very comfortable and modern, quiet street though right in centre, fantastic breakfast, lovely rooftop patio and pool. All around amazing hotel to stay at as vacationer or for business. nothing at all.
Position and convenience is excellent The Bar area was a bit clinical and not conducive as a relaxation area
Staff was very kind and helpful, Location was excellent
If you're looking for a central location as your jumping off point for Barcelona adventures, Barcelona Catedral is an excellent choice. Newly renovated, the hotel is very well appointed and has all the amenities you'd expect from an inner-city hotel. Roofdeck infinity pool is gorgeous and the setting is really fun, basically overlooking rooftops and balconies. Staff was very accommodating and went out of their way to provide service. Food in the restaurant (we only had breakfast) was good, local and fresh. Located right next to the Catedral. Not much to dislike, really. A bit hard to find if you don't know where it is. Also, pigeons tend to fly up to the pool and bathe in it a bit, but the staff was on top of cleaning the edges of the pool so it really isn't much of an issue. I had hoped the hotel bar / lounge area, which was really cool, would have a bit of nightlife, but it was dead most of the time.
The location is very close to the centre of the city. The access to the hotel by car is not so easy (cannot be done by GPS navigation). The way to the parking garage is a little bit laborious. The breakfast was not included in the room rate. WLAN was not working, only LAN with the cable.
The hotel is very central to the historic quarter. The walking tour of the old city provided free of charge on the Sunday morning was excellent.
The hotel was located in the heart of the city; steps away from the Cathedral; easy walking distance to La Rambla, transportation, Palau Musica, Picasso museum. Staff was attentive, informative, and gave great recommendations for restaurants and how to get around. The hotel provided a free Sunday AM walking tour of the Gothic Quarter! a
Location was walking distance to many sites and central to Barcelona. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. Staff helpful. Checkin and out were a breeze. Everyone was professional and warm. No complaints.
Hotel is a great value for what it offers. The rooms are clean, modern and comfortable. Rooms had smooth, clean wooden floors and are equipped with modern ammenities. The hotel is located in the Barri Gotic which is a central area to many shopping centers, reastaurants, and focal tourist points. The staff was extremely helpful. It is a short walk to Las Ramblas from the hotel. The hotel is practically next to the Catedral. (a must see). The hotel bed are big however they are not too comfortable. I experienced a lot of tossing and turning each night. Hotel also states that they offer sound proof rooms but the rooms are not completely sound proof. We were still able to hear the people in the room next to us laughing and talking, as well as the noises from the front street.
excellent location, very central but quite.
The hotel is located within walking distance (or a brief cab ride) of nearly everything you could desire in Barcelona. The room was comfortable and clean, and the staff is courteous and very helpful. Above all, the hotel is delightfully quiet--easy to to get a good night's rest.
Location Size of the junior suite Not being informed that the public areas were all closed for renovation - not a big deal for us but I could see how others would be annoyed.
The very comfortable and beautiful foyer. The decor in bedrooms was too modern. i.e. bed too big causing little space, bath too high and deep with no hand-rail to haul oneself out! Not many shelves in bathroom or in bedroom itself. No hooks for towels/clothes to hang in bathroom. Could easily hear traffic and TV in next room but understand that sound-proofing is in progress.
Location of the hotel is excellent Employees collaborators Recommend to live in Close to everything Nothing
The freindly atmosphere and good service limited dining facility choice
Junior Suite great view Sheets are not new, lobby is small, tolet broke down in 4 days - all that in a Junior Suite. Standard room very small.
the location of this hotel is the best in Barcelona.
location the rooms and interior of the hotel were not as expected
Very attractive throughout and huge room
The location was fantastic.Everything you needed in the room was available like the iron and a kettle for free coffee & tea.Nice touch for the complimentary voucher for 2 cups of illy coffee in the reception. There was a nice lady on the reception (don't know her name ) which seemed the head department, was really too helpful & she spoke with a lovely smile all the time. It took me like an extra hour for checking in. I asked for a room with an ventilator in the bathroom, but was told it's possible only in suits !!
Location on La Rambla. The surprising additional charge for my 8 year-old son.
quite efficient and the location overpriced
Very good hotel. Staff pleasant compared to other people who served us during our trip to Barcelona. We found the hotel to be exceptionally clean and the room very comfortable. Enjoyed the breakfast and the panoramic rooftop bar!!!!! I was not keen on the location - although excellent for accessing everything in Barcelona it felt a bit scary at night walking out. But would still go back - just get taxi's when returning to our hotel at night. You can see the area is being improved though (police presence).
Staff is very friendly and efficient, especially the restaurant manager. Room was clean and comfortable, good beddings is the most important thing in a hotel, and it iw good here. The 360 view on the city is extremely enjoyable, exceptional. 360 bar closing at 23:30 when it is written 12. Room service not available during the night, that is not up to a good 4 stars. Maybe one or two more staff to hire could be better.
Everything. Particularly the decor and coffee machine. Would have prefered croisant or something in the breakfast box.
Great central location. Clean, bright and very modern. Reception staff very, very slow when leaving
This hotel is very interesting for those, who are interested in modern architecture and design.The hotel interior is thought over to the smallest details. The district Raval is horrific. Whole the day around the hotel are walking suspicious persons
Beautiful rooms, great location, rooftop panorama, loved this hotel and would stay again in a heartbeat.
Nice design hotel not far from the city centre. Very friendly staff, fair prices and great breakfast. -
Location, Terrace, comfort of room
very imnteresting design, I have never seen anything like this before it was rather cold this days and the swimming pool was only outdoor...
Value for money
The hotel was absolutely fabulous, there were 8 in our group and all of us had a wondeful time. The staff were exceptionally helpful which was great when trying to book a table in good restaurants for 8 people at short notice. Cannot fault the hotel in anyway - great location - we walked everywhere and saw most of Barcelona over a long weekend.
The attention to detail, the comfort and the wonderful staff Room service was extortionate - tea, coffee and toast 50 euros, however to balance that soft drinks from the minibar were complimentary. We were disappointed that access to the roof terrace is not available October to April.
The location unnecessary noise (e.g. from electricity)
location does not meat 4 star requirments.
good location no tea & coffee making facilities had to pay wxtra for safe when it was one of the features mentioned
The location is a big advantage of this hotel. It is very convenient to get any point of the city. Maybe it needs a little touch up in order to make its rooms a little bit modern.
Wonderful location, friendly staff, clean rooms.
The Receptionist The enlargment mirror in the bathroom did not work and no blanket on the bed
Location and price was good.
Great Location right on La Rambla, Building and Interior central to major attractions. Spacious D/Room with balcony overlooking La Rambla. daily room service, Reception and cleaning Staff friendly. very enjoyable stay €15.00 for Breakfast to expensive encourages guests to dine elsewhere.Why not reduce price and fill the breakfast room. €2.00 for safety box key is petty and should be discontinued .
The spacious room, the balcony. and the street's view The lobby is not classy, the breakfast not various, there is no bell boy to help with baggages, and during the 6 days of our stay they did not clean the room, they only made up the beds, sometimes they even didn't remove the garbage from the pins.
Ease of access to the Ramblas and the city. N / A
the location the price of the room and of the breakfast
The central location is the hotels best feature.
It is very central. I slept like a log as the blackout curtains totally blocked the sun light and the double glazing was really soundproof. Although, we were in Las Ramblas pedestrian walk I could not hear a thing. I also liked the mattress a lot. I think they could have offered us bathrobes and slippers. I can do without bathrobes but not without slippers as I had to walk barefoot in the bathroom.
Hotel is not even close to 4 stars standard. Should be classified as 3 stars
Location! Boutique hotel category. Very pleasant service
My sister and nephew stayed here in this very comfortable boutique hotel. Very comfortable. Excellent staff. Great rooftop bar / very small pool with beautiful views of the Gothic Quarter and further. There was nothing not to like.
The look was absolutely stunning no complaint
Great staff and you can't beat the location. The standard rooms are quite small, just big enough for a bed and two bedside tables. However, they are sufficient comfortable for sleeping. My biggest complaint is the noise from the hallway. The walls are paper thin! You will hear everything in the hall, from someone walking by with flip flops to the late night party goers returning. Therefore, expect to have your sleep interrupted throughout the night.
The Hotel's excellent location so close to La Rambla was perfect for our short city break.
Convenience of location. Nice staff. Nice lobby. The bathroom set up not convenient. Had to go to the bar anytime needed ice, no ice machine or anyone to bring it to room. No tissue or clock in room. Not many outlets.
The location was more then perfect and the hotel is really beautiful. Often we saw people stopping outside to look in. Staff was extremely helpful, kind and spoke perfect English. Our first room was too small and only window to open was with a view of the renovation going on in the hotel and this was a smoker room which we wanted from start but I could not breathe in there because of dust and then this little window. We got another room with no problems to the street with a balcony. The room was pretty, stylish and bathroom as well. Only minus is really the amount of dust and white dust from renovation, the room was covered in it so if you laid your arm somewhere you had it on your clothes. But we just did not wanna "complain" again so balcony door was always open. I even had to clean the toilet before we could use it. but we would definitely come back if no renovation of hotel was going on
The location of Hotel Espana is fantastic. Located just off of La Rambla you are only a minute's walk away, the marina is only 10 mins and there are plenty of restaurants near by. The design of the hotel was pretty good, mixing very modern in with the old. While renovation is still being carried out during the day there was a little noise and some areas of the hotel are still covered in paper and tape to protect areas. The rooms where a little dusty but we understood that this is from the renovation and not because they haven't been cleaned. I would recommend wiping the inside of the cupboard down before putting your clothes in. We got a good deal on this hotel booking it last minute so for the price we paid it was pretty damn good.
The room was very modern, big enough and clean. Everything is new and good in quality. Very good sound isolation from the outside but not from inside. There is a lot of noise from other rooms and hallway.
Unique, beautiful building with fabulous rooms and interior design. The staff was exceptionally charming and helpful. They provided us with great restaurant recommendations as well. The only issue is that the hotel is situated next to a school with noisy children playing outside parts of the day. This may affect some people (like me) who must work in the rooms. But the children's voices and laughter were infinitely more pleasant than hearing a TV set :)
Front desk, restaurant & bar staff all very friendly & helpful. Beautiful lunch in the restaurant. Wonderful location - would recommend highly.
Good, albeit expensive menu. Our waiter on Thursday evening was very good as was the bar man. Dark room, enclosed balcony, very expensive room service, huge TV but only CNN and Eurosport in English - plenty of spanish and German programs. Waiter who poured the dregs of the wine stright into my glass
Location, decoration Some Neri Rooms are very small, heating didn't work in one of them. When we moved to a junior suite, everything was different.
Helpfull and pleasant staff, good restaurant and a fine location for Old city and Los Ramblos
The location was ideal for a weekend trip.
The location, the atmosphere inside and out,the staff,the size of room, the rain shower,
Very stylish and romantic hotel - ideal for our wedding anniversary
Fantastic room, great service, excellent location!
interior design central location but unsafe at night
