Historical Traveler Reviews H10 Casanova Barcelona
Grün, sehr grün
Wir waren hier für ein paar Nächte Ende März. Das Hotel hatte eine recht schöne Lage, ca. 10 Minuten vom Plaza Catalunya, La Ramblas usw. entfernt. Bis zum Bahnhof Barcelona Sants waren es mit dem Taxi ca. 10 Minuten.
Das Hotelpersonal war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Der Rezeptionsbereich ist der grünste Rezeptionsbereich, den ich je gesehen habe. Wenn man abends ins Hotel zurückkam, sah man schon vom Ende der Straße ein grünes Glühen.
Glücklicherweise strahlte dieses Grün nicht in die Zimmer, die komfortabel und sehr sauber waren und eine schöne Größe hatten. Auszusetzen habe ich nur das verstopfte Waschbecken, das dann einigermaßen repariert wurde als wir Bescheid gesagt haben. Das hat uns den Aufenthalt dort aber nicht vermiest.
Insgesamt ein sehr schöner Aufenthalt.
Exzellentes Hotel nah an der Las Ramblas
Das Hotel liegt an einer der Hauptstraßen Barecelonas. Die Adresse ist 559 Gran Via De Les Corts Catalanes (an der Ecke der Casanova Straße) und man geht von hier nur 10 Minuten zur Las Ramblas und zur Altstadt. Exzellentes, neiues Hotel, makellos, sehr hilfsbereite Angestellte, sehr gutes Frühstück (kontinentales und englisches), sichere Tiefgarage, gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis (ausser der Internetzugang der 9 Euro pro Stunde kostet!). Sehr empfehlenswert.
Was toll war (wir waren 3 Tage hier): Die tolle Gaudi Sagrada Familia ( an U-Bahn Linie 2), ein Konzert in der Palau del Musica (in der Altstadt), die wunderschön von innen ist - würde es empfehlen wann immer hier ein Konzert ist.
Excellent hotel near Las Ramblas
The hotel is on one of the main roads into Barcelona, address 559 Gran Via De Les Corts Catalanes (junction with Casanova), and is about ten minutes walk to the start of Las Ramblas in the old town. Excellent new hotel, immaculate inside, very helpful staff, very good breakfast (continental & English), secure underground garage, reasonable value (except for Internet access which is €9 for one session for up to 1 hour!), recommend highly.
Highlights of our stay (3 nights): the amazing Gaudi Sagrada Familia (on underground line 2), and going to a concert at the Palau del Musica (in the old town) which is also just stunning inside - recomment you go to whatever concert is on.
My husband and I stayed here in February and had a fantastic time! The hotel is modern & clean. Our room was very nice and shower excellent. It was easy to walk to the square & las ramblas from the hotel. There was a very friendly barman who was very helpful and found us a map so that we could find our way around! He also recommended restaurants. I would definetly go back!
Green, very green...
We stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of March.
The hotel itself is fairly well placed and is about a 10 minute walk from Plaza Catalunya, La Ramblas etc, and is roughly a 10 minute taxi ride from Barcelona Sants railway station.
The hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful. However, the reception is the most green reception I have ever come across, so much so, that when returning to the hotel at night you can see a green glow at the end of the road.
Luckily, the "greenness" doesn't extend to the rooms, which are comfortable and very clean, and quite a good size. The only downside was a blocked sink, which was (sort of) fixed once we'd reported it. However, that didn't spoil our stay. All in all, a very pleasant stay.
Nice, basic place to stay
My husband and I stayed in a double room with shared bathroom for 5 nights. Overall, this is a pretty nice place to stay, although the "B&B" name is a bit misleading. It's basically a shared apartment. The place is kept very clean and the staff is very nice and helpful. The rooms are decked out in IKEA linens and furnishings, and most have small balconies. Our mattress wasn't very comfortable, but for the price I am not sure you can expect better. The self-serve breakfast that is provided includes melba toast, green jam, cereal, tea, milk, juice, and nescafe. It was a bit disappointing, but again, for the price I am not sure you can expect much better. The location is great, in a neighborhood about a 20-30 minute walk from the Gothic Quarter (or a train ride and a few minute walk). Although I think there is room for improvement, I would stay there again, as it provides a nice balance of affordability, convenience, cleanliness, and comfort.
New, central, lovely hotel.
New hotel, quiet, very central so easy to walk everywhere. Friendly staff. Lovely restaurant. The most lime hotel I've ever seen! Definately recommended.
A Great Stay in a Great City!
I have to agree with the first reviewer. The Casanova was a real bargain when we booked..Less than 500 Euros for 4 nights for a great room and one of the better breakfasts I've had in Europe in a long time...fantastic , fresh, baked goods as well as primo Spanish hams and cheeses....
The hotel is very chic and the room and bathroom tastefully done up. I liked the huge shower and the flat screen t.v is a plus for CNN freaks needing a morning news fix. There were complimentary papers at breakfast ( French and Spanish) and the waitress and waiter who took our coffee orders in the morning were very very nice.
The maid service was excellent as well. The room was kept spotless and the towels, big and thick and luxurious were a real pleasure.
The desk staff are young and attractive as well as multi-lingual and VERY helpful. I was very impressed , especially at their quick replies to my many emailed questions before our visit.( Thanks Ana Daisy and Joana)
I have only a couple of small complaints. The room did seem a bit warm even though I monkied with the thermostat and the hallway noise a bit of a bother once or twice....Still , this is a great place and I would gladly stay there again!
Lucky, lucky us!
We booked 3 nights pre-cruise at Apsis Splendide with another couple. On arrival they/AS announced that we could share a suite, or they would transport us to a nice new hotel nearby. The shared suite was pathetic and we were apprehensive about their alternative offer.
Wow! Did we luck out! For the price of the marginal Apsis Splendide, we had a lovely [but small and irregular shape] room with a wonderfully comfortable bed and linens, and large bathroom. The safe was free and large enough to slide in our laptop computer and all other valuables. I imagine that our "courtyard view" room was considered basic, and other rooms much roomier.
Since we'd reserved the breakfast option at AS, the superior breakfast at Rafaelhoteles Casanova was included as well. The breakfast buffet was delightful with juices, fruits, cheeses, pastries, etc and the best coffee we'd had at any hotel anywhere. What a way to start the day!
The front desk staff were so gracious and professional. They handled the transfer of our mountain of luggage smoothly, There were 2 elevators, which was very nice. They notified angie's taxi of our new location for pick-up, and checked AS to see if any of our friends had left messages for us. There ws always a carafe of lemon water or thyme water at the desk--so refreshing!
The 1st floor lobby is spacious and welcoming and we found a little nearby cafe which stayed open very late. There were many fascinating eating and shopping choices in the Universitat area between this hotel and Pl Catalunya.
We felt the hotel and their staff was a "class act"! We'd recommend this hotel to adults of any age.
The only negatives we could find were the scrambled eggs weren't kept as hot as we liked nor was the bacon crispy, but with all the other choices it didn't matter. The air-conditioning system was very effective but difficult to "fine tune" to just the right level, this is something they will have likely resolved in the months to come.

Obnoxious Aussie drunk and noisy, drowned out the crying baby.

I have 30 euros per month.

It was a good Correfoc. They always are. We were tempted into the flames a good few times. My Correfoc hat got a few more singe marks. James’s bandana became slightly melted and the lens filter on the camera ended up with a sort of melted blob, which might be when it was hit by a spark which was captured in one of the photos ...
