    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ciutat de Barcelona

    Die Lage gefiel uns sehr

    from

    Was uns am besten an diesem Hotel gefiel, war die Lage. Barcelona ist recht klein, sodass viele Attraktionen in der Nähe und zu Fuß erreichbar sind. Allerdings war diese Gegend gerade weit genug von den Touristenmengen entfernt, aber in direkter Nähe einer coolen, modernen und jungen Gegend.

    Das Zimmer selbst war klein, aber sauber. Das Badezimmer war viel kleiner als von uns gewollt und das Bett war hart wie Stein. Auch die Wände waren sehr dünn, da wir viel Verkehr aus dem Flur hörten. Der Internettanschluss war spitze, was im Vergleich zu einigen unserer anderen Spanienreisen selten vorkommt. Das Personal war hilfsbereit, aber niemand half uns mit unsern Taschen.

    Loved the location

    from

    What we loved most about this hotel was it's location. Barcelona is relatively small so many sights are close and within walking distance. However, this area was just far enough away from the tourist crowds but very close to a very cool, trendy, young neighborhood. The room itself was small but very clean. The bathrooom was much smaller than we wanted and the bed was hard as a rock. Also, the walls were pretty thin as we heard much hallway traffic. The internet access was great, which is rare compared to some of our other stays in Spain. The staff was helpful, but no one to help with your bags.

    Barcelona Beauty

    from

    Looked brand new inside, clean, convenient, classy. Great Internet/computer functions available and FREE bottled water.

    A few minutes walk from the nearest Metro, the waterfront, the Gothic area, the markets and La Rambla. Stacks of eateries nearby.

    Great location

    from

    Contemporary hotel, clean and fresh. Great location near the gothic area. Friendly staff. 5 minute walk from the train station.

    Great Hotel, Perfect Location

    from

    For the price, this hotel went above and beyond my expectations. The location is perfect-- in the heart of the old city and el borne. The rooms are clean, stylish, and quiet. The staff is very helpful and happy. There are free internet computers and the bed is very very comfortable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    Hotel Ciutat de Barcelona

    from

    We booked this hotel for a 2 night stay prior to a cruise. Having made the reservation back in Feb., we were able to get an incredible price of 56 euros per night. We had 2 rooms. One was a smoking room with a king size bed overlooking the courtyard. I was told that outside conversations could be heard with the window open. The other room was huge. It faced the street, had 2 twin beds and 4 balconies (3 in the room and 1 in the bathroom). Both rooms were exceptionally clean, modern, and quite comfortable. The front desk staff were extremely helpful (we arrived at 9:00 a.m. and were able to check in right away for 1 room and had the other available in about an hour). We ate breakfast in the restaurant and would say that it was just o.k. As we wanted to do a lot of sightseeing, it was fast and convenient. We also had dinner at the restaurant 1 night and it was fantastic! The food was superb, the service great and the price was very reasonable. The location of the hotel is great, just a short walk to the touristic bus, las ramblas, etc.

    In short, we loved this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

    Breakfast blues

    from

    The reception staff couldn't have been be more charming and the bedroom and bathroom were fine -- clean, attractively decorated and modern. But there was a downside. First, our bedroom looked out over an inner courtyard and we picked up every damned word from a couple of noisy women in the next room who seemed incapable of speaking at low volume. Second, the breakfast service was a disgrace. Sulky bad-tempered staff, no tea bags for two days, long queues for the sole self-service coffee machine, day-old bread, orange juice and bread rolls that kept running out etc etc.

    Excellent Value

    from

    The hotel is in a perfect location. It is in El Born near the Picasso Museum. It is new and the service was excellent. The decor is very simple (IKEA) and there aren't many amenities, e.g. no iron, no cd player, no tissues. There is only 1 English language tv station (CNN). However, for the price, it is an excellent value. The front rooms have some street noise, but the back rooms have no windows. The rooftop pool is very small, but it does the trick. Stay here if you are on a budget and value simple cleanliness.

    Try it!!

    from

    This hotel really worth the try!!! Brand new hotel in the center of the Borne neighborhood one of the trendiest places in Barcelona.

    Rooms are nice and well decorated, beds comfortable, breakfast ok.

    Staff extremely nice, except for this rude guy at reception who was traiting everybody as he was saving their lives. Best of them was the italian guy and the young girl who were super nice with us.

    Try the place!!! We´ll, be back again

    Hotel is still being completed

    from

    I booked this hotel only because I got a special deal, 56 euros per night plus tax. When I booked in February, the hotel was scheduled to open in March. Sure enough, when I arrived, there were builders everywhere working on the restaurant, terrace/pool, and even the entrance.

    Therefore, I can really only comment on the following:

    1. Location: excellent, on the edge of the trendy El Born area, right near Sant Jaume.

    2. Room: small, but well designed. The room had a flat screen tv, comfortable beds, and the bathroom was nice as well. I could see noise being a problem, as the doors tended to slam shut, and you could hear everything in the hallways.

    3. Staff: mixed. One day housekeeping was wonderful, and then the next day, the person made the beds, and did nothing more, not even replacing used cups or toilet paper!

    There are nice extras such as free bottled water, coffee and pastries in the morning. I don´t know if they will continue to offer the coffee and pastries when the restaurant is open.

    If you can still get the special rates, it is a fantastic deal, especially as everything in your room will be brand new. Also, I did visit the roof and pool area, which looks like it will be very nice when completed.

They don't speak Spanish, rather they speak Catalan, which is described as a mix between Spanish, Italian, and French. At this moment Catalunya is trying to become it's own country. This may even happen by the end of the year. The Catalunyian flag was hung out of the windows of all of the supporters that ...
