Great Hotel - Great Location
Just arrived back from this hotel. I have always found this site helpful in the past so when I was taking my girlfriend to Barcelona for xmas I looked for good reviews. I wasnt let down. This hotel is superb. Great spacious rooms, excellent friendly staff and plenty to eat @ breakfast. The fast & efficient Metro system stops literaly outside the hotel and is four stops from Placa de Catelonia (where its all at) Taxi from Las Ramblas = 6euro/ Airport 26euro. The Airbus again stops outside and is 4euros to the airport. I'll stop going on, but i hope this helps. I'd recommend this hotel to young/old......anyone and everyone. Enjoy!
Lived up to all the good reviews
We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of July, and had a large triple room for the 3 of us (11 year old son). I had checked the Tripadvisor reviews carefully before choosing a hotel, and chose this one because it had a rooftop pool, and sounded as if a triple room would be larger here than in the older central hotels.
It lived up to all the reviews and met all of our expectations. The metro is just outside the front door, and it is a quick journey into the centre. We also took a bus to and from the centre. It is also the first stop for the airport bus, which was very easy to use (and airconditioned). The breakfast buffet is huge and very varied. It was very hot in Barcelona, so an airconditioned room was essential. We can recommend the open-top tourist buses (hop on - hop off), which were a great way of seeing the city in very hot weather.
Helpful staff, busy hotel
We stayed at this huge hotel for 10 nights in June 2005. It seemed to cater for large parties, including schools, sports teams and business trips and it was exceptionally busy while we were there. The bedrooms are small but very clean and well equipped with satellite TV, hairdryer, minibar etc. There was maid service twice a day and all of the staff were eager to help. The snacks served in the bar/ cafeteria are good value and the Piano Bar is a lovely oasis of calm. The rooftop pool area is small, with around 30 sun loungers which didn't seem to be enough for the 300+ rooms. We found that the pool and terrace area was quiet throughout the day but got really busy from around 5pm when the school trips etc returned and it all got a bit rowdy.
The views from the roof over Montjuic and the 'Musical Fountains' are amazing but there is always a lot of traffic noise and this means that it's not the best place to relax.
As other reviewers have mentioned the hotel is ideally placed for local transport and a late night taxi home from the bottom end of La Rambla is not too expensive (approx. 7-10 Euros). As a short stay city break hotel this is perfect but I probably wouldn't recommend it for longer than a few days.
I'll be back again next year
excellent hotel! excellent location! excellent breakfast!
i cant think of a bad word to say about this immaculately kept hotel! the staff were friendly and on hand at all hours of the day!
the metro is literally less than a minutes walk away from the hotel so you can wake up in the morning, have a shower(which is very powerful, unlike a lot of hotels i have stayed in in the past) stroll down to breakfast, which is a variety of pastries, cooked breakfast, cold meat, cereal and fruit and then be on your way for a lovely day out seeing all of the sites in the town. if you want to go for a drink in the local area close to the hotel, i would recommend Club Ibiza, the staff are friendly and you will have a good night! i will be back next year.
I've just got back from a Business Studies school trip to Barcelona. We stayed at Barcelona Plaza & i have to say it was really good. It had an amazing location, with the Metro on the doorstep, literally. There were bus stops gallore within a short vacinity. The view from the front of the hotel and the rooftop swimming pool were spectacular, you could see the magic fountain & the Palace; along with the rest of Barcelona.
It is classed as a 4* hotel (not 3*) as this website suggests. It is exactly what i'd expect from a 4*. I'd reccommend staying here to anyone going to Barcelona in the future.
The hotel is in a great location. First stop off from the A1 airport bus, next to a subway stop and next to a Barcelona Tourism bus.
The only problem is that the room smelled of smoke. Turning on the A/C didn't help so we left the window open most evenings.
Although the hotel is next to a major intersection the rooms are insulated for sound extremely well.
Exceptional staff - friendly and courteous. If I were to grade the hotel it's about a 3.5 star hotel. Rooms were very clean, it's the smoke in the air that bothered us.
Great Hotel at a Great Price
I travel to Barcelona 4 or 5 times a year, always stay at the Plaza. Highly Recommended.
Fantastic Value Sept 04
We stayed here for four nights and found all the facilities to be of the highest quality.
Although not in the centre of the city there is a metro station outside the front door and you can get to anywhere in the city wihin minutes.
Breakfast buffet was excellent and we had an evening meal in the bar on one occasion which we found very good value.
All in all an excellent hotel which I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone
Absolutely Loved it!!!
I would absolutely recommend anyone and everyone to stay at this hotel. The hotels area is amazing and is in the center of everythig. The staff is nice and the hotel has everything you need to acomodate anyone.

Today we had a rest from the tour and had a sleep in and a late breakfast. Caught up on some emails coming in unable to send emails out which is a pain no one seems to be able to so not just us. Anyway we left the hotel and wandered over the road to the Bull Rin or what was the Bull ring in Barcelona is now a shopping complex. Bull fighting was …
Left Pamplona early today long drive to Barcelona ahead. First stop was for coffee and to visit the Plaza Del Pilar one of Spain's grandest squares and to visit the Bassilica of Our Lady of the Pillar. Beautiful square with an amazing fountain at one end and the most beautiful outdoor area where we sat in the sunshine and had a coffee and chatted …
... a cabin booked for us; all a treat from a dear friend Fanny, of a tres-riche family, and descended from the Bloomsbury Set. Rosina rapped to music as we now waited and George did the rapper gangster hoover crip sign (how did he even know that), complete with mean face.
We were not put onto the ship just before us, which sounded something like the Titanic, as Rosina had pointed out, but were instead guided onto the Zubaran, and once on ship we explored around and ...
... went on a tapas tour. So much cheap yummy food, and cheap yummy drinks, our whole evening only cost us E$25 each, and I was sloshed and full of food. We met some sweet young boys who are studying on exchange in Pamplona, they were just adorable, and made our evening even more fun.
Gaudi was followed by Miro. We headed up to the Miro Foundation the next day. I love Miro... well, mostly his later stuff, but it also had some awesome ...
We have a great sleep as they have mechanical blinds on the outside of the windows so the room stays nice and dark and quiet :-). We struggled to get up, but we managed to allow enough time to catch a train to the meeting point in the central town. We didn't have time for breakfast so we grabbed something from a local cafe. Then we were soon on our way on this walking tour. We had a great tour guide who was originally from ...
