A boutique hotel perfect for business trips. It is called Room Mate Emma de Barcelona and is located on Carrer Rosselló. It is equipped with everything you need to disconnect from a day of work, or, if you can't avoid it, work from the room. It has a quite fast wireless connection from all rooms, which is a good point.
Nevertheless, if I have to say something in particular about this hotel it is the superb location, a few meters away from Passeig de Gràcia or la Rambla de Catalunya. My room had two beds together of white and mauve colors, the identity mark of the hotel chain. It was very comfortable. The ornament of the room has very avant-garde style and the bathroom is very complete. It has a shower instead of a bath.
The breakfast buffet was mouth watering and the cafeteria is very quiet. Lastly, the reception, small but very cute. It has a computer with internet connection for clients.
To sum up, a very charming boutique hotel. Well located in the noble area of Barcelona. I highly recommend it.
The Denit Hotel is close to Plaza Cataluña, which makes it an ideal option to move around Barcelona’s most interesting places, such as the Ramblas and Gothic Neighborhood.
It is also great to go out at night to some of the famous places without being disturbed by the noises. The rooms have a minimalist decoration and they take well advantage of the spaces, where you will feel very comfortable and you will have everything you need.
The breakfast offers many choices, the coffee is very good and there is a surprising variety of fruit and pastries, perfect to start a day of walking through the city. If you stay there, take a look at the walls in your room and in the halls.
The hotel recommends some interesting places of the city, and you can get a guide in the front desk. This is a great corner if you are looking for peace and tranquility and comfort with a great location.
Aparthotel Silver is a very nice hotel with a family atmosphere. The apartments have small kitchens, but the best thing about it is the little garden in the back where you can have breakfast. They are very friendly, and there is free internet at the reception. The location is great, right next to the Fonana metro stop.
I stayed at this hotel for a few days in July 2008, as I was going to Barcelona to see the Springteen concert at the Camp Nou. It is a 3-star hotel belonging to the Derby chain. It has a great location, witin walking distance of Rambla Catalonia and Paseo de Gracia, and is close to several city bus lines, Metro (blue and green lines) and taxis (at the door). It is in the most central, touristy area of Barcelona, with plenty bars, cafes, and restaurants nearby - although be aware that the prices are quite high.
The hotel was great, and we were very comfortable. We arrived early, and as there were no rooms available, we left our luggage at reception. The entrance and reception area is very wide and luxurious, all spotless, freshly-polished marble, with leather sofas and walls covered with beautiful paintings. It was decorated with antiques, as this hotel chain has links to the Egyptian Museum, and guests could get free tickets to the museum (we didn't have enough time to go). From here, we went to the little bar and restaurant. Our room, on the 4th floor, was quite spacious, equipped with the typical: Two 90cm beds together, wardrobe, a desk and an armchair. The television was on the wall and was flat screen. The decor was simple but functional, and the furniture was dark wood.
Given my intolerance to noise and the location of this hotel, we had asked to stay overlooking the quiet courtyard. The only problem was the broken thermostat, as we had no way to turn down the air conditioning, which was quite cold; sometimes, we found it better to turn it off entirely. There are radiators for winter, wifi, and a small gym with sauna. The bathroom was all marble and very spacious with a bathtub wall to wall, wc, bidet and a huge counter with recessed sink, with more than enough space to store your toiletries.
There's a rooftop terrace with some chairs and umbrellas next to a small pool. One of the advantages the hotel offers (besides the tickets to the Egyptian Museum) was renting a free Smart vehicle. I can't talk about breakfast, as we only booked the room, but the buffet cost 13 euros, and I don't think it would be worth it as there are so many cafes in the neighbourhood. Indeed, I recommend the cafe right next door, with very reasonably priced food. We paid 100 euros for a night, which isn't exactly a bargain, but it was the city centre, and July...
This is a modern, clean hotel with great details like a free minibar (water, soft drinks and beer), computers with internet access in the lobby, and magazines (men's and women's) left in the rooms. Parking costs 15 € a day, which is really not bad for the area, and it's 10-15 minutes walk from the most important sights, and generally very well connected (bus, train and subway). In the neighborhood you'll find pharmacy, confectionery, supermarket, food market ... In short, a highly recommended hotel.
The Ramblas Hesperia Hotel is in the heart of Barcelona, if you want to be a few meters away from the most charismatic and most colorful spots, this is your hotel. If you want to get up in a good mood, you cannot miss out on the breakfast prepared in great detail to fill you up with energy to visit the city.
