Historical Traveler Reviews Aparthotel Atenea Barcelona
Stayed at the Aparthotel Atenea for 3 nights in April. The room was lovely and spacious and as described on lastminute/their website. Quite spacious, could easily fit 3 should they allow it. tv has a few English channels and the room was quite clean.
Had tickets for Barcelona FC waiting for us at the reception so they're quite trustworthy and friendly/helpful. They called Barcelona FC to confirm the seats were seated together(as the tickets were seats 137 and 139 but in the Nou camp thats the way they do it!!!)
Very good location, closest tube is less than a minute walk but the city centre is within walking distance(10mins max).
Breakfast was very clean,tasty,cosy but simple.
Would go back 100%.
Great hotel -at a great price
We stayed at the Aparthotel Atenea in April last year for 4 nights. We managed to get a good deal through lastminute.Our hotel room was very spacious - and everything in the bathroom had been sterlised which was great. The rooms were very clean.I think the hotel is a great location as it is not too far away from the centre.The only negative I have to say is that the lock was broken on our hotel room door - however this was sorted out very quickly and they arranged for us to stay in another room immediately.I would defnitely stay here again.
Lovely budget Hotel
This was our fisrt trip to Barcelona. We being three girls, looking for a fab time in barcelona. we were pleasently surprised with the quailty of the hotel, considering we got it so cheap. The staff are not that freindly, but we did'nt come to make friends with the hotel staff. the rooms are adequate and comfortable, with the added bonus of a fridge.
everything you need is available from reception, including the corkscrew to open that essential bottle of wine!! breakfast was great, although the hot breakfast looked a bit suspect!!! Getting around Barcelona was really easy, as the metro station is only a few steps away. great hotel, if you're just looking for somewhere to sleep and have a decent breakfast!!
Great Start to the Day
This hotel is very reminiscent of stark business-type accommodation - no frills at all but clean, neat rooms and a shower/bath that worked better than any other I've experienced in equivalent-price hotels in Europe. The breakfast was fantastic however - a huge buffet is available with good variety of dishes - A great start to your sightseeing day! A word of warning - make SURE you use the safe for any valuables. We had an incident where something was taken from the room.
This seems to be a problem common to a lot of hotels in Barcelona, however. All in all, for the price - I would recommend this hotel.
There is a station down the road so the location is convenient too.
Great shopping around the corner
The hotel is a little out off the beaten track, which means it is quiet, staff were not rude but were not friendly or helpful (a hello or a smile out of them was a struggle )
The room was ok, clean, basic and a nice bathroom and the communal areas extremely nice. Breakfast was very good, better than most cuisine I sampled in Barcelona, under no circumstances have a meal brought to your room unless you have the appetite of a sparrow and the income of Bill Gates!!!
But best of all if you head towards avenue diagonal (left if your coming out the door) from the hotel all the way into town are some very nice shopping centres, which we initially mistook for offices.
The area is also very well serviced by bus and metro....
Barcelona is a beautiful city so you wont need to be in the hotel. If your not looking to make friends outta the staff, it is an ok hotel.and you could do alot worse!!!

Today was Sant Joan's Eve and this is also quite a big celebration in Catalunya. We had decided to spend it in Barcelona because we were flying back to England from there the following day. lots of people head down to the Barcelona beaches for bonfires and fireworks (there are bonfires all over Catalunya for Sant Joan) but this has a bit of a …
... told there wasn't a lot to see but we had a lovely day. There are a large number of canals which always add interest to a city. The church of Parrocchia Santa Caterina de Siena built in 1720 is a most unusual octagonal shape with a 63m high dome centrepiece. Inside it is quite amazing as the painted walls have a depth of perspective that is quite awe inspiring. You feel as though they go way back, but in fact it is all the work of a very talented artist, Cesare Maffei. Each ...
... into perspective the places we have visited over the last few days. Then we chose to take the 400 step spiral stairs to the bottom getting a close up look at the exterior detail through peep holes. A walk through Gaudi's museum below the church floor showed the brilliance of this man. Although satisfied with what we had just experienced we had timed entry tickets for Park Guell, a commissioned fun private garden designed by Gaudi, so ...
... for the final 8km ride to the hotel.
It was a little while later that I flatted. As I once again went through the by now well-rehearsed motions of tube replacement, we saw more of our group speed by, oblivious to our presence. With my tire inflated and installed just enough to be ridable, we pressed on not wanting to lose any more time when so close to the end. After a brief period of ...

We put that one behind us and ventured to the fountains. Well we knew they were on tonight…there was about 200 people waiting last night, tonight there were thousands…yep the show must be on. We caught the 10.30pm and it was fantastic. A huge display of water, lights and music that lasted about 10 mins and so worth making the effort to go again. Rush hour then to ...
