    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Granvia Barcelona

    Great location, room in need of renovation

    from

    Stayed in late November 2003. The location is excellent - convenient to the "Barri Gotic", Rambla, good restaurants and shopping. The mezzanine level boasts an elegant salon (with large TV and computer with always-on internet access), and a lovely, spacious terrace complete with tables, chairs and fountain. Our third-floor room, however, did not live up to the public rooms. Although it had ample closet space, and was okay size-wise, the furniture was tacky and fraying, and we gave up on trying to make the TV work. Also, standard doubles are twin-bedded - not to the liking of this couple.

    Below my expectation.

    from

    I went there early November. We are recommended by traveller's magazine. Gran Via is nominated as one of the value for money hotels.

    Surely the location is amazing. You are easily accessible to the shopping district and a number of Guadi's monument. That's the very reason why you go to Barcelona. However, the hotel itself is pretty old. Not to mention the exterior, the elevator and the hotel lobby, the room itself gives you a very old impression. There is strong chlorine smell from the towels in the bathroom.

    Wonderful and next to Plaza Catalunya

    from

    We spent 5 days at the Granvia in May, 2003. It was great. The place is pretty, the rooms are comfortable,old fashioned Iit used to be a mansion)and immaculate. The staff was great - we loved and will come back.

    Great Value & Location

    from

    My wife and I stayed at Gran Via for 2 nights in Sept 2004 before our cruise. Took the train to Placa da Catalunya from the airport( 5 euros for the 2 of us), 5 min walk to the hotel. 110 euros and well worth it. Breakfast buffet was convenient and adequate. The place is a mansion of the past and has character that a new hotel cannot match. Very close to the Ramblas, skip the Ramblas and go 2 blocks north on the Passeig de Gracia. It has upscale shops,dining, and outdoor entertainment that you will not want to leave. We went to our hotel at 1:00 AM and hated to leave because the place is so beautiful and extremely safe.

    Gran Via Hotel, Barcelona

    from

    Myself and 3 friends stayed at the Gran Via Hotel in Barcelona in a quad room - it was very clean, and so convenient for the city centre. Would rate it very highly, particularly as it worked out at about Euro 40 per night each. This is not a luxurious hotel, but very adequate. Book at room at the back of the hotel (quieter), if possible with a balcony or terrace.

    Nice hotel

    from

    Nice hotel. Was located in a nice area, close to major interest points. Plenty of shops and eating options were close by. Hotel breakfast was a little over priced. Internet availability was also nice.

    Great value with charm!

    from

    We stayed in Oct 2002 for approx $100 per night for a spacious suite (large entry hallway in the room, living room, bedroom, and large bathroom); it is a little faded but in a very charming way. The common areas are gorgeous. The location is great, since it is very close the La Rambla but without all of the noise. Very nice staff.

    Good hotel

    from

    Well placed near Placa da Catalunya, the Gran Via has a certain 'faded glory' charm. A double room cost 66 Euros/night (early December) which was good value for a clean, sufficiently spacious room with a decent bathroom.

    The breakfast was only adequate, but there are plenty of local alternatives.

    The staff were friendly enough and the first floor lounge, which was being used for a fashion photo shoot during my stay, is a thing of extraordinary antique splendour!

    Great place to stay

    from

    Very nice staff. Large,clean rooms, with recently refurbished baths. Wonderful common areas, large gorgeous patio and large beautifully furnished sitting room. One euro an hour good internet connection in the sitting room. Great location- close to old and new areas of the city.

    Had breakfast at the hotel - our accommodation included breakfast. First time we've had bacon and eggs since leaving home. Started our day with a visit to the Barcelona cathedral, a must see when in Barcelona. A spectacular church built in the 13th century. From there went to the Piccaso museum but the queue to get in was to long. Found a place to …

    We made it!!

    ... br> Maria was very confused.." in 200 meters make .left turn, right turn, left turn, then right turn". WHAT??? And then you get 200 meters and there is NO TURN ANYWHERE. So where were we supposed to turn? Then Maria would reroute and we would start over. We finally got to the road where our lodging was to be and we are driving up and down the road trying to find the house number.

    ... It was quite an experience being there and one we so nearly missed if it hadn't been for an Englishman we met while not enjoying the worst lunch you could imagine,  suggested we travel that way. The lunch. A frozen burger with squeeze on cheese reheated in a microwave, and I had a tiny quiche  Lorraine, also microwaved, but still frozen in the middle. Disgusting, but the best local guide information ever received. Lovely drive in the foothills of ...
