Historical Traveler Reviews Confortel Bel Art Barcelona
We was in Bel Art Hotel last weekend of February. The staff was very nice with us all the tiem, and also offer to us a wonderful with a very nice view to a park in front of the Hotel. The room was also very big and the direccion offer us a champagne as they saw in our passport that was my husband anniversary.
Also the restaurant have a very good cuisine and the waiters there was very clean and helpful.
Of course, I will back to Bel Art Hotel when I will back to Barcelona.
Can't go wrong with this one!
Hotel was good, as expected from a 4 star, although staff could have appeared a little brighter/happier. The club nextdoor tends to make weekends a little more difficult to fall asleep, and we didn't exactly get to bed early either! Pretty well situated and tube stn up the road to get to the city centre with ease. Food is good, although a little pricey.
Lovely but loud!
We stayed for three nights. Lovely bright clean hotel with friendly staff but exceedingly noisy as next to a nightclub. We got moved to back of hotel but still heard music all night.
Good value bel art
The hotel Bel Art was surprisingly good, especially for the cheap internet rate we paid. Rooms very nice and spotlessly clean, beds very comfy, bathroom excellent, air con included too. The breakfast was excellent, loads and loads of choice, yummy cakes too. Location out of the centre, but we liked that. 5 minutes to the yellow metro line which goes all the way into town. Only gripe were the instructions given to get there (there wern't any) and we ended up walking a long way. Get the metro, yellow line and get off at Alfons X. Follow lapanto signs, hotel just down the road on the right. It can be confusing as it seems to be called The Bel Air as well!
Somewhere nice to eat is Bar Ra, behind Boqueria Market on La Rambla. Walk through market, turn to the right and you will see the colourful parasols. Eat 3 course lunch + small drink for 9 euros, Delicious.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Hotel Bel Art and we were impressed. I have stayed in other 4 star hotels in Europe and I definitely did not have high expectations of the hotel (especially given the price). However, our room was very clean and air conditioned, the bathroom large and the bed extremely comfortable. The location was not a problem - we definitely did not feel unsafe. We even managed a walk from Las Ramblas to the hotel which took about 35 minutes. The hotel staff was friendly and bi-lingual. There was, however, a nightclub next door which we could hear faintly through the double glazing. But this stopped at midnight so it was not a problem. We would stay there again.
Not as good as the photo's
This was a hotel I chose from a well known "last minute "website. A mistake! The hotel is on the outskirts in a typical poor surburban area of town. The first room we were given smelt of sewage. The reception staff brought a can of spray out! It was the chambermaid who told him there was a problem with the loo and we were moved upstairs. The room was standard chain standard in style. However we were unhappy with the following: -The most uncomfortable bed EVER! -The room was boiling woth no visable air con -The sateillite TV only had dodgy German channel - The rooms overlook a building that is being renovated. very noisy. Its one redemming feature is that it within walking distance of Gaudi's cathedral which was a complete bonus as we visited it after the tourist buses had gone.
We stayed here for 3 nights and it worked out to be a great choice. It's location is good or bad depending on what you want. We did NOT want to be on the Ramblas. If you want to be in the center of the action, don't stay here. The hotel is about 8 blocks from La Sagrida Familia, which we knew and liked when we made our reservations. We were able to walk there. We were also about 3 blocks from the Barcelona Subway system, which we used quite a bit.We read on-line that some of the Barcelona hotels did not honor internet reservations or rates and we were reassured that because the Bel Air was part of the Quality Inn chain, our reservation would be honored-- which it was.The hotel itself is clean and simple. It looks as if it was recently redone. Our first room was quite hot and they switched us immediately, no questions asked. Both rooms were of adequate size, not huge but well within the standards at European hotels. They definitely cater to tourists and since we were, it was perfect.

... with our friends on this trip. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was delicious ! We ate grilled octopus, Manchego Cheese, wonderful potatoes drizzled with a combination of red and white sauce....yum. I had a plate of spaghetti with clams which were very flavorful. Various pizzas, meats, poultry and seafood dishes were consumed. Finally, after a beautiful first day in Barcelona, it was time to head back to our place for some much needed rest. ...
... bree cheese, sardines, artichokes and Parma ham and the most amazing anchovies at Boqueria food markets. These food markets were a feast for the senses and deadly to my wallet. They were so good I went back twice in one day so I didn't miss out on sampling all the many delicious delights. Of course these is always the paella - to be honest I was a bit disappointed with my paella experience. But when I'm using dad's amazing cooking as my benchmark it's ...
... selling the flavoured liquid you can inhale in an e cigarrette. 100s of flavours to pull into your lungs. Along with the mint, and rose, how about "smoked salmon", or "bone marrow" flavour? There is a famous produce market. I love a good market, the sights and sounds and smells. This one is exceptional.. a feast of the senses. Fruit and veg that you want to stop and squeeze and sniff and devour. Freshly ...
... I just cannot bring myself to chasing the tourist dream in this city. It feels like I’m not doing it justice. Besides, it’s been almost three months on the road and I’m a little tired. The European leg coming to an end and I feel like the time is right. In 10 days, I will be in South America which will be a completely different adventure. I’m excited for the change.
The girls and I walk around Parque de la Ciutadella onto Arc de ...
The flamenco show only last 40 minutes before we headed down to the port to have some dinner. The was a Mexican Restaurant where a few of us grabbed some food and then we all met up and went to the Olympic Bar. It was one of the few bars that opened before 10pm. Most local don't actually have dinner until 10pm and the bars and clubs open a lot later than they do back home. They are also open a lot longer ...
