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.

... really felt I needed something to remember this moment in Barcelona. It's sick, We then had an all you can eat buffet lunch, we barely made it through one plate... But yum anyway, then headed down the flashy shopping strip with no intention of buying any Tiffanys or Prada. There is a shop everywhere in Europe called 'Pull and Bear' and Georgia has pretty much diagnosed me with obsession for it. Everytime I see one I go in and buy something, I ...
... location inside the market that has about 14 stools. Think food truck, but slightly bigger. This lunch location, Pinotxo Bar, was down the 3rd aisle. We stopped to get coffee and a xuixo (a cream-filled croissant-like donut, fried and rolled in cinnamon and sugar). Unfortunately, they had sold out of xuixo so we got coffee and a croissant. We were lucky enough to find 4 bar stools together. Brian eyed the beef stew and Nick eyed the ...
Our flight (BA2706) left on time at 07:40 and landed at Barcelona El Prat airport at 10:50 local time. Coming in to land we enjoyed a stunning view of Barceloneta and the beach below. After disembarking and collecting our bags we picked up our Barcelona cards at the tourist information desk and were on the Aerobús by 11:30.
We'd booked 4 day Barcelona (BCN) cards and return Aerobús tickets online before departing. The BCN ...
We went on
another bus tour today, covering the east part of Barcelona. Unfortunately we
had to sit downstairs for much of this journey, so I couldn’t get many good
photographs. This tour took us past some of the beaches (wish I had one of
those lenses like Ken has). This area has more modern buildings as it was originally
not really occupied. The city expanded east when the bourgeois decided to escape
... met with Zarah’s step Uncle Richard who lives in Barcelona. We have a drink with him at this traditional Spanish bar and got some hot sight seeing tips from him for tomorrow.
Once again we couldn’t deny another night on the hostel party bus. Back at the hostel we had a few drinks and met a group of people from the hostel who where there for a music festival on the weekend. 12.30am we all caught the bus and went to another one of Barcelonas clubs on the ...
