Historical Traveler Reviews Astoria Hotel Barcelona
Very Nice Hotel
We had to spend one night in Barcelons in July 2004 and as usual checked Trip Advisor for info.
This hotel has had mostly good reviews and they were right.
It is a very nice hotel in a very good location. One night is perhaps not long enough to give a proper review but in the time we were there the hotel certainly was well worth the 3 star status it has.
We booked online directly with the hotel and got a very good price (94 euros) and a very clean room with a nice clean bathroom.
The breakfast is an extra 11 euros and,while it is pretty good,you may find better value and choice in one of the many cafes etc. in the area.
We would certainly have no hesitation in choosing this hotel for future trips to what is a fantastic city.
Great place to stay
Great place to stay in Barcelona. Very friendly staff. Rooms are clean, and the housekeepers do a nice job. Nice location. Make sure that you ask for a room with a window (not the airshaft). Can be a bit noisy from streetnoise (as in just about anywhere in Barcelona), but if you are a light sleeper earplugs will do the trick. I would definately stay here again.
The hotel exceeded my expectations of a 3-star hotel. It's location is close to Gaudi's Casa Mila and about 20 min walk from Placa Catalunya.
It's very clean, well equipped and the service is good. Highly recommended
Loved the location!
Stayed here for 3 nights in January. Excellent location. Within walking distance of Las Ramblas - or there's a bus stop right outside the hotel!!! We were lucky, having read other reviews we requested one of the few double rooms which had a great view. Lots of beautiful authentic restaurants near and if you like designer shopping, you couldn't pick a better location.
Stayed here for 4 nights in Jan 04. Room average with poor view but warm & decent amenities. Buffet style continental breakfast - excellent.
5 mins from metro and in an upmarket area with plenty of shopping/restraunts
This hotel was very good - location away from hustle and bustle, but still very convenient. Spacious, clean and airy rooms and lobby. Polite staff.
August 2003 Just got back, had an excellent time, nice to enter into a cool air conditioned Hotel & room from the intense heat outside, decor very impressive,breakfast was a lovely selection of cereals,meats & fruit, plenty of staff on hand to help when necessary.Disappointed there was no cocktails on offer in the evening. Some lovely restaurants nearby, and taxi rank just outside.Hotel location just far enough away from noise and car horns. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone.
Hotel Astoria was Excellent.
Stayed at the Hotel Astoria. The hotel was very nice and all the people very friendly and very accommodating. The only slightly negative item would be that our room was right next door to the cleaning closet and it got a little loud when they started cleaning in the morning. But, everything was very clean and the rooms were great. Barcelona was AWESOME, including the Costa Brava and the nearby mountains. I highly recommend all of it!
Very Mixed (and yes, Bizarre)
We were not very pleased with this hotel. We were given a relatively very expensive room (150 euro/night) that was small, cramped, and had no external window. Instead, the window opened onto a creepy airshaft with very little light or air. We were disappointed, to say the least, and asked to change rooms. The hotel staff were not gracious in handling our request, and it was only when we packed our bags and prepared to stay elsewhere that the staff promised us a room with an outside window the following night. (after refusing to refund our reservation deposit of one night's stay if we did leave). Admittedly, the room we had on the second night was bright and had a view, and the bathrooms were quite nice, although not worth the price charged. We were informed by the hotel staff that there are only 7 double rooms with outside windows in the entire hotel. The rest of the rooms face on the gloomy airshaft. Another disappointment with the Astoria is how difficult it was to get around Barcelona from the location. It took us quite a long time to reach downtown, and we wasted much of our day travelling to and from the hotel and nearby attractions. Overall, not worth it. One of the places down closer to the Cathedral would be a much better bet, and much less of a crunch on the pocket book.
Great location, peculiar service
Yes, this is a great location. Yes, the refurbished rooms have a stylish sense of wit.
Service is bizarre. We were travelling with children and discovered a startled bellboy lurking outside our kids' room at 2 a.m. When we enquired about his business there, he ran away! The car park is a garage in the next block, which is sometimes locked up at, say, 9 in the morning; one must go back to the hotel and wait for a bellboy to find a key in order to retrieve one's car or to park it. Our room was facing the street, but was quiet. Our kids room had a window onto a creepy airshaft. But if you are interested in the modernista Barcelona, the location is unbeatable. If you are driving, it is located just off the Diagonal, and so if convenient for making trips to nearby.

... the hotel was. Anyway I got to the hotel in the end through showing him the exact address on Google, he put his arms up and kept saying Si Si. I knew that was a good sign, I think I paid more money than i thought it was but I was grateful to be at the hotel. I couldnt check in till 2pm so decided to walk around and find some food and to come back at 1pm. I found a cute little place with an outdoor area, I had a look at ...
... views of the Mediterranean and slips full of ships of all shapes and sizes. We crossed over a bridge that led to a small man-made island which was home to a fairly large shopping mall and found a table on the patio of a very busy seafood restaurant to have some lunch. After nearly freezing to death in Paris it was amazing to sit outside with the sun beating down on us so to celebrate we ordered a couple local beers and some delicious fresh seafood.

... paella but two people had to order it unfortunately. We toasted the day with a glass of cava and a coke. The catalan crema did tempt me even though I was full. It was good but not as good as mum's creme caramel. I returned Bridget to the apartment and then strolled La Rambla with the hordes of others. I simply did no more than take in the sight of the sea of moving faces and drank from the fountain which apparently ensures my return. ...
... a while and then a staff member came along and said the next entry time would be 1:30 and suggested to those waiting in line that tickets could be purchased online. We decided this would be the best option, so we went to the nearby park, sat on a bench and used my phone to purchase tickets for the 5:30 entry time. By having this later time, we could go tour the rest of the city. For the two of us it cost just under 30 euro. We then walked back to Passeig ...
... hop-off sight-seeing buses. I was tired, my feet were tired -- this was an easy way to spend the morning. John and I switched to a second route that drove along the beach -- quite pretty, while Melissa and Karl stayed on to get back to the hotel. From there they were going to spend some time at the beach. There aren't any beach pictures because the kids didn't want ...
