      Historical Traveler Reviews Astoria Hotel Barcelona

      Very Nice Hotel

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Very nice

      from

      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!

      from

      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.

      Decent

      from

      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

      Lovely Hotel

      from

      This hotel was very good - location away from hustle and bustle, but still very convenient. Spacious, clean and airy rooms and lobby. Polite staff.

      Very Impressive

      from

      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.

      from

      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)

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      ... Rick Steve's tour around the interior, noting different items like the Glory Facade at the front of the church that will depict the final judgment once completed (it is still under construction and not much has been started yet). At 2:00, I head to the stair case near the Nativity facade, for I had bought a ticket to go to the top of the facade. You can choose between the Nativity and Passion facades, and everything I had read had indicated ...

      OK….back to the hotel. We were told that we could go to the rooftop and wait for our room. So, we did. OMFG…what a view!! There’s a bar, a pool and three “salons” These salons are u-shaped benches with vinyl pads (white) surrounded by jasmine (just happened to be in bloom…so ...

      Boarding the Ship

      Today we left our small apartment in the heart of Barcelona to board the Holland American Nieuw Amsterdam cruise ship for a 12 day adventure. We hauled our luggage down to the fifth floor elevator stoop and managed our 120 pounds of stuff onto the ancient elevator, pitched the two sets of four keys into the owner's mailbox and drug our luggage one block down the ...

      ... and we had to be up at 6 to catch a taxi! Woops! I was absolutely dying but it was worth it it was so nice to see Odetta, it had been three years and it had been 2 years since I had seen Dave and to meet Scotty who was awesome and actually made our trip better! I wish we had had a few more days in Barcelona to go to the beach and see the stadium and to just go and see Barcelona but next time! That’s what Sinisa and I have decided we will definitely come back here one day!
