Well, well well....where do I start. Only those that have been to Barcelona and La Ramblas will understand the title of this.....How do you describe La Ramblas? An area of madness and chaotic restaurants and bars (and bloody gift shops run by Indian's and Paki's) in which the whole population of Barcelona and all it's tourists decide to visit at …

Here I am once again Gaudi's city - Barcelona. I am always stunned by the diffirent architectures of Barcelona but still, strangely, this city has never been my favourite. We checked out from the hotel in Girona and had a quick breakfast on the same street as the hotel where I found out that the spaniards drink a REALLY REALLY thick chocolate …

... ended up sitting in a beautiful park, overlooking the city, drinking sangria and listening to an acoustic guitar! Barring minor concerns of being drugged and raped, you could say life was pretty good. After waking with a big hangover I had a few slow days around the city, seeing park guell and the gothic quarter of the city. I missed a lot of things in barcelona, but what I saw was enough for me to say that I am in love with Spain and feel very happy and comfortable ...

... to the development of cubism and modern abstraction. The almost satirical work of The Dream and Lie of Franco shows Picasso's condemnation of Franco's dictatorship over Spain and Picasso said he would never enter Spain again so long as Franco was in charge. Over 4,000 of Picasso's 22,000 works of art are housed here in Barcelona. Formerly five 13th century Catalan palaces, the building itself is a stunning work of art.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Auto Hogar Hotel Barcelona

    Getting what you pay for!!!

    from

    OK so it`s a little bit noisy, we also got two single beds instead of a double & we had too pay for a safe, but lets be realistic here. when i booked this hotel i was not sure what i was going too get, is it going too be clean, safe and over all acceptable? the answer is a very big YES.

    A place I want to forget!

    from

    What an awful hotel! We stayed here just one night and it was one too many. We had to walk through the car park to take the lift to our room. The room had a view - a view of an interior 'courtyard' of other rooms windows, cement, pipes, rubbish and bad smells. No sunlight could possibly infiltrate the room. The beds were hard with flat pillows, but the room was clean. Breakfast was included but it was like being in a high school cafeteria - noisy, plates being smashed on the kitchen floor, busy and not enough tables. In the hotel's favour, the reception staff were quite helpful and it is in a great location to the tourist spots and the train station. Only stay here if all you intend to do here is sleep (though that was difficult with the noise).

    Oddball of a place!

    from

    reading thru some of the other reviews - i can tell we all had very mixed experiences while staying there!! it took me 20mins to find the place - my fault as i went in the wrong direction when i left the metro, which is very close to the hotel so that was excellent! very good central location.. room was small & i had to access my floor by walking thru an underground carpark..u get what u pay for which for me was a basic room with double bed & luckily i was given the non-smoking room which i had requested! clean towels everyday 1bath,1hand & a bathmat.. rooms are clean.the safe in the room is faulty (which i think is just an excuse for you to pay for the ones in the lobby - at 1.50euro per day,its not that expensive - but why have the faulty ones in the rooms??). the tv didnt have a remote - which was a nuisance when i wanted to switch between my 10 spanish speakin channels!! also i heard a lot of guest noise as my room was on the inner part of the hotel, (no traffic noise tho!) you hear noisy guests stumblin around at all hours - doors slammin,water flushing..that sort of thing..definitely pack those earplugs! also had a small window & not much natural light coming in - which really meant u didnt know what kind of day it was & how to dress accordingly - which is what i do.. but i guess u see that at the breakfast - which must be the best deal about stayin here! good variety of cold/hot, sweet/savoury foods before you start ur day of siteseeing.. waiters are friendly also.. as for the hotel staff,.. lets just say i received a phone message on the friday & they gave it to me when i checked out on the monday! even tho i had asked the desk if there were any messages for me on the friday as well!! (after the msg had already come thru) i recommend this hotel if ur not going to be spendin a lot of time in ur room - i didnt! if u just need a basic space to sleep, clean up & close to everythin - then this is it! otherwise avoid it...

    Think twice before staying here

    from

    We stayed here in early August for 5 nights. We booked through expedia and were just looking for a basic comfortable hotel at a good price. After the first night i seriously thought about changing to another hotel even though i'd already paid! It has to be the noisiest place i have ever stayed. There was noise all night long echoing loudly through wafer thin walls and you could here everything (i mean everything in graphic detail). The staff weren't too friendly either. It does have a good location, and by day it is fine, but if you're going to stay here bring some earplugs or you won't get any sleep.

    I will return !!!!

    from

    The location is a great place to start your explorations of this vibrant city. Situated close to La Rambla, Tour Bus and the Metro you can strike out in any direction and see the sights that Barcelona has to offer. Close by are several bars offering a range of good tapas and more substantial meals should you feel the need after an Auto Hogar Breakfast. (Go there and you will get my drift) The staff are welcoming, pleasant and helpful. The rooms are clean, well maintained and air conditioned (a must in July / August). A party of 10 in unanimous agreement. Go there and enjoy !!

    Absolutely fabulous

    from

    What a find! The location of this hotel is absolutely fabulous. 5mins away from La Rambla. Metro station, bus stop and funiular are two minutes from the hotel. The rooms are clean, with clean sheets and towels every day, two bath towels and four hand towels every day, shower gel and liquid soap are also provided! There is even a hairdryer. The only downfall is there are no tea/coffee making facilities. The staff are all polite and friendly and they all speak english. There are a number of cheap bars that serve food within two minutes of the hotel lobby. Breakfast is a veritable feast! Everything from cornflakes to spanish omelette, baked beans,croissants,bread jam, fresh fruit and tinned fruit, yoghurt to a variety of tea and coffee, so there is plenty to eat! This hotel is a godsend to anyone who wants a good location to base themselves for the ultimate experience that is Barcelona. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone and will definitely visit again in the not to distant future.

    Just want a bed?

    from

    My wife and I share 4th July as our birthday. We chose to go to Barcelona for a long weekend - to see the sights, eat well and drink (hey!, we're English). We wanted a CHEAP, CLEAN, CENTRAL and FRIENDLY hotel. We found it in Auto Hogar. YES it's noisy outside (It's a major city!) but on the plus side the breakfast is plentiful and can set you up for a long day of sight seeing. Straight outside of the hotel is a Metro station from which you can also catch the funicular. The bar just outside and to the right is ok and open until 3am (2am Sunday), so you can head out for the night and have a nightcap right on your doorstep. Day staff were great (although the maid walked in and interrupted my wife and I having a 'quiet' moment together).

    I will though be booking here again.

    Basic but clean

    from

    We stayed at the hotel in May 2004.

    Very good value for money

    from

    Stayed at Auto Hogar 28-30th april'04. Good value and excellent location. Hotel clean and spacious. shower didnt work at first but within half an hr it was working again. Hotel had cafe linked which was clean and open all hrs. Takes approx 5 mins walk to La Ramblas and 5 mins to harbour. The beach was approx 20 mins walk. Breakfast was good for continental and plentiful. Staff friendly. Would recommend this hotel for short breaks to barcelona. Twin beds - we had one high and hard, and one low and soft - thought we would get a double but that wasnt ded for approx £30 pethe case. We had to walk through the inside car park to get to a lift to our room but that was ok. Radiators were not working but we didnt need them in april. Please bring your own towels as the ones they supplied were very small. no need for shower gel or hand wash as they were supplied. No tea/coffee making facilities. Bring hangers as only two suppied. Very enjoyable stay highly recommended as only cost us £30 per person B & B through alpha-Beds.

    Seek your thrills with no frills

    from

    This place was advertised as a "no frills" place though the staff are friendly, the general layout is OK and the location pretty central.

    However, true to the ad the room I had was indeed very basic. But clean, warm (well it was snowing!), TV worked and competitively priced.

    The location is the most usful thing about this place as it is just a few minutes walk from some great sites and a very useful metro station to get about from. If you don't mind "basic" then you could do a lot worse. I'd stay again.
