    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Gran Ronda Barcelona

    Average hotel

    from

    We stayed for 5 nights at the end of February. Our first room was the size of a match box! When i went to reception they offered me a bigger room, so we moved. The second room was huge - its pot luck what size room you end up with! But the sink was broken. The third room was also large and at the front with a balcony which was nice. But the rooms lacked attention to detail - bulbs not working and wallpaper hanging off. There is no bath or iron as stated on the hotels web site. However, the location is fantastic (5 minutes walk to las Ramblas), the level of cleanliness exceptional and the free internet access useful. The staff were ok, but the cleaners woke us up several mornings and then one morning we received a non-requested wake up phone call - at 0645! Overall, for cleanliness, location and a bed to sleep in this hotel is fine, but not reccommended for anything more than that.

    Excellent choice

    from

    My girlfriend and I stayed in Gran Ronda at the beginning of February for 2 nights. The Hotel is very modern, with glass and timber decoration on the inside. The glass lift where you can see the atrium is brilliant as well as the centre of the reception where you can see the glass painted roof 6 stories up. Very impressive.

    The bedroom was a bit small but you get used to it as the Flat TV, the spotless bathroom and the contemporary design of the room and its location [10 mins walk from the centre square] cover for that.

    The hotel was an excellent value for money and I surely recommend it to everyone.

    Lovely hotel in ideal location

    from

    I stayed here with my girlfriend at the end of january for four nights and i have to say i have no faults with it at all. As mentioned on other reviews its a short walk from la ramblas with the university at the top of the road. On the day we arrived at 12 we booked in and were told our room was not ready which is not surrising seeming like it was quite early but were allowed to leave our luggage in a locked cupboard which was very handy. The room was tastefully furnished (flat screen TV!!)and the bathroom was spotless and the shower was nice and strong which i like. We didnt eat in the hotel as there were so many cafes and restaurants around and we spent most of our time checking out the fantastic sights barcelona has to offer. the staff were a small bit firm but every time i talked to them they were curtious and mannerly and when we left they were very accommodating on booking taxi's and helping us with our luggage. There was just one thing but its a problem with all hotels in spain, the walls are quite thin so sounds from surrounding rooms can be heard quite clearly, so if you are offended by certain 'sounds' then best bring some ear plugs. It only happened one night and last only 10 or 15 minutes but was quite clear. I would recommended this hotel to all my friends.

    Modern, trendy and great location

    from

    We stayed at the Apsis Gran Ronda for 3 nights in January 2006. The hotel is a very nice modern hotel wih a traditional facade. It is located approx 5 minutes walk from La Rambla and Place de Catalonia on a quiet street. We only had breakfast in the hotel on the last day as this was €11pp...it was basic enough and for some reason the dining room was roasting....the breakfast is not very good value compared to the miriad little restaurants/cafes when you venture out into the streets of barcelona. The room we stayed in was very tastefully decorated with a modern twist. We had a room at the front of the building looking out onto the street, we had a small wrought iron balcony and double doors which was nice too. Everything in the room was perfect and very comfortable, no problems at all - and the bathroom was brand new and very trendy! The staff weren't overly gushingly friendly but were helpful if needed so that was fine by us - there's a tiny bar at the hotel but we didn't venture down as each time we walked by there wan't anyone sitting at it or serving. There's too much to do in Barcelona to be sitting in your hotel bar anyway! This is a fab hotel if you want a nice comfy room and a lovely central safe location to base yourself... Do the bus tour, it's fun and great to see everything at once - especially the Segradia Familia. Also the restaurants in the Barri Gothic are FAB and very cheap so go exploring - don't just stick to Rambla - or if ya do then have a late nite digestif in Cafe de L'Opera

    Nice modern hotel

    from

    I stayed here only one night in January 2006 and

    it was satisfactory. My room was also clean, modern and with flat screen (only on german channel DSF)

    The staff was friendly.

    The location is ok, but there are better locations.

    The rate was also very good (but it was January), so if it is like this again, I will come back.

    Nice rooms..unhelpful staff

    from

    my room was great. clean, modern, with flat screen tv. location of hotel is great. you are close to Las Ramblas, the metro, all the shopping and restaurants you could ever want. I got a great rate (50-60 euro per night). However I found the staff extremely unhelpful. They could not give me costs for incidentals and there were no tourist materials in the lobby. I would recommend this hotel for a very independent budget traveler who does not need much help from the hotel staff.

    A brand new hotel

    from

    This hotel is a little gem that's situated very close to Universitat, Plaza Catalunya and Ramblas. But this street is not as busy as those around Catalunya or Ramblas so you can get a good night's sleep and be refreshed for another day of exploring. Rooms are very tastefully furnished. Wooden floors. Very nice fittings in the bathroom. And you must see that flat screen tv! We had a good-sized shower. They have free internet access in the lobby. And are close to Metros and buses. We did not have breakfast included but there are many Starbucks, Dunking Donuts, McDonalds, and smaller coffee shops close by. Staff was helpful in providing us with maps and information on places to go and how to get there. I'll definitely stay here again.

    ... fun and really made the experience for us, plus the dinner was delicious! After dinner, we went next door to the gelataria and the boys got some gelato. We then walked back to the apartment, and we again saw the little tents popped up all along the river- well the one right down the stairs had a bunch of foosball tables, so of course we had to stop and play! I was pleased Kurt picked me for his team even though I suck, and whatever team mark is on always wins! ...

    We found a table upstairs because the bar was quite busy and we hadn’t intended to stop very long, thinking we’d have plenty of time but we had to drink up fast because the pasejada arrived before we thought it would and we missed that ...

    ... come back in the winter to see the Picasso museum ;-)

    The old city center, keep looking UP: then magic happens! Very narrow streets with high appartment buildings so that the sun has no chance of passing through, lots of little balconies, wash hanging out for drying, container plants everywhere. Lovely. But when you look down... shops everywhere, some designer things, some Chinese bazaars, the classical ...

    ... a wide pedestrian boulevard lined with many cafes/restaurants, lots of street vendors with cheesy souvenirs, and tons of tourists. Apparently the most famous street in Spain, but to us, it seemed a huge tourist trap. (hehehe) Anyway, we wanted to walk down this way as there is a famous market that we wanted to check out. It's called Mercat de la Boqueria. Wow, SO MANY PEOPLE!!! Tourists spectating the piled up fresh foods, locals purchasing ingredients for dinner... ...

    This park was stunning, we stopped for a coffee at a little coffee shop by the massive water feature and watched as a group of teenagers practiced break-dancing on a band-stand nearby. They paid no ...
