    Historical Traveler Reviews Gran Ducat Hotel Barcelona

    Super central friendly hotel

    from

    Just spent 3 nights at the Gran Ducat. Great hotel, very central to the Catalunya Square and few minutes from the Ramblas. Spotlessly clean and good breakfast. Staff very friendly - even baked my son a 21st birthday cake! Little noisy in the front of the hotel but traffic quiet during the night. Room quite small but clean and comfortable. A great base. I would recommend to anybody.

    V central!!

    from

    v central+close to los ramblas!!staff were friendly and helpful, great price for barcelona full marks

    Great Location

    from

    The location was excellent. The rooms very clean with simple yet cute decor. The only complaint would be that the water never got "hot"

    it was warm. Since they offered full size tubs it would have been nice to soak in a hot bath after a day of sight seeing. Besides that everything was great.

    Excellent value for money

    from

    My husband and I recently spent 6 nights at this hotel including breakfast. The position of the hotel made it so easy to get to and to make use of all the different forms of transport available to go sightseeing round the city. Our double bedroom was spotlessly clean and serviced every day. The room was spacious enough for the two of us and we had no problems with noise although we were on the back and maybe this helped. Breakfast was not exceptional but there was certainly enough variety to satisfy most people. We would certainly recommend this hotel out of season.

    NOISY, great location

    from

    I stayed at the Gran Ducat for 7 nights, 7 very noisy nights. There is no soundproofing whatsoever!!!! I was able to hear luggage being unzipped in the next room, and conversations. The price, on the other hand, could not be beat!!! 65 euros including breakfast. I found the hotel to be very clean, I thought housekeeping did a great job. Breakfast was very tasty, the location is fabulous, it's just very noisy. Bring earplugs!!!

    Great location - Great value for money.

    from

    The combination of price,location,cleanliness and staff friendliness made for an excellent stay. Only stayed for 1 night so cannot comment on the cleaning services. While our double room was smallish, the modern Ikea-like furnishings meant it didn't feel at all cramped or cluttered with wardrobes and the like. Would definitely stay there again.

    Great Location, Poor Hotel

    from

    I recently stayed at the Hotel Gran Ducat for 4 nights. The location is ideal, it's literally a block from Placa Catalyuna. The rooms are minimalist - I found them to be below average. They're very small, even by European standards, and extremely noisy. It was hard to get a decent night's sleep there. Reception was great - they were very accomodating and helpful. Housekeeping, on the other hand, could definitely use some improvement. Our shower (very small) was not cleaned once during our stay!!

    Extremely convenient

    from

    I agree that this hotel is an ideal place to stay as it is right by the Placa de Catalunya where you'll find the Bus Turistic (Tourist Bus) stationed at, as well as the Metro, and the beginning of Las Ramblas (shopping and eateries).

    The hotel was clean. I had a room facing the Ronda St Pere, so at night it was quite noisy, and the rooms aren't soundproofed, so I did get woken up at times by fellow Brits coming back in from a night out, and other odd noises.

    The receptionists spoke good English. I got told to check in at 2pm. The room was fully air conditioned. The bathroom had a shower, toilet and bidet closely clustered, so getting out of the shower was a bit tricky.

    I would stay there again, but only for a short stay, and not for a special occasion.

    Clean and convenient

    from

    Room was reasonable size and newly decorated (Aug 04). This minimalist loved the white/cream decor. Great location opposite le Corte Ingles - one of Barca's best department stores, and a minute's walk from placa Catalunya which meant not so far to haul our rucksacks! We had a room with a view of the square, but despite our fears, it wasn't at all noisy when we wanted to sleep. Staff were very helpful and all seemed to speak English. Didn't use room service/breakfast, etc. so can't comment on that. All in all - not a bad place to stop for a couple of nights in the heart of Barcelona.

    Excellent location in the heart of Barcelona

    from

    Hotel Gran Ducat was recommended to us. It was extremely convenient for any part of Barcelona but particularly because of its close proximity to Placa de la Catalunya the hub of Barcelona where all transport starts and finishes. The airport bus drops off and picks up here too.

    We booked direct with the hotel. They spoke English which was very helpful. The rooms were compact but comfortable. Everything was clean and tidy. The cafe was very expensive but at the end of our stay they forgot to charge us so it worked out okay! We only ate in the hotel for one morning. The best way to do breakfast in Barcelona is in one of the many cafes - churros and chocolate - the kids will love it!

    For those of you who had tried to follow our blog while we were in Europe, sorry that we were not able to get things posted. The internet connectivity was the very bad, plus we ended up so busy that we wouldn't have had the time to do it all anyway. So, finally it is completed.

    ... guy fm Austria chatting to a Russian man saying lewd things about women and how Americans don't want to talk while eating. They simply want to stuff their face. Lol. Good thing we ate all of that bc it was a long walk to Basilica de la Sagrada Familia. It's an amazing church that began construction in 1849, and it's still being built. Whoa, the vaulted ceiling held up by pillars and the impressive stained glass were larger ...

    ... the shuttle bus to the ship, we stopped at an outdoor plaza for a cold and much needed beer. The center fountain and old men on benches feeding the pigeons were picturesque. A racket going on above our heads in the palm trees
    were dozens of green parrots, arguing over the hanging figs in the trees. A cat was walking along a narrow edging between the second and third floors, walking in and out of open apartment doorways on each balcony. An old man ...

    After waking up feeling 'more tired than anything', it was time for a visit to Gaudi’s masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia. This is one crazy church! Again, maybe my inner ‘Altar Boy of the Year’ was calling me. Construction started in 1882 and it still continues today. Upon the completion of the main nave in 2010, it was consecrated as a ‘basilica’ by then Pope ...

    With little to no sleep and nothing else we could do about Zarah's bag we carried on our journey and had another tourist day out. Today we headed to Park Gruell, this is a huge ancient park with many walking pathways and areas to look at. It also had a high point which overlooked all of Barcelona….amazing! To get there though was a mission. We got off the tube where Zarah though was the right spot, looked up and saw this huge ...
