Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Acta Splendid Barcelona
Good for the money..
Stayed here for 3 nights over the new year, was happy with how clean and modern the rooms were and the staff were friendly. 10 minutes walk to Place Catalunya and there is a small 24h grocery store at the top of the street.
The main streets were safe at night but later on some of the side streets looked a bit seedy.
Great Hotel for the Money
For the value, this is a great hotel to stay. Stayed for 9 nights, staff members are extemely friendly and accomodating. From the cleaning staff, front desk, and breakfast bar staff, they were very kind. Room was clean, nice and modern furnishings. The bathroom was clean and beautiful, all in marble. I would say this is one of the top 3 star hotels I have stayed in. Barcelona, I think set hight standsards for their 3 star hotels in general. Location was great, on a quiet street and close to the universidad metro. I walked around the neighborhood late night and found it relatively safe when I went out alone (39 yr male). Of course, I recommend safety precautions for all travlers.
Tip: I booked online at apsishotel. They are a small chain and you can get better rates and web discounts. Also check out there other hotels if you are looking for a different area in barcelona or want to stay at their 4 star hotels.
Good value for the money
Stayed for 4 nightes in August 2004. The hotel is very quite and clean. 10 minuets walk from la Rambla. We ordered via the web and got great return for the money.
p.s. the hotel has changed its name from "Best Western Hotel Splendid"
Now called the Apsis Hotel Splendid
A group of 4 couples stayed in the Splendid to celebrate a couple of our 40th Birthdays. We found it to be very clean and the staff helpful. My wife and I had a Junior Suite which was excellent for us meeting together as a group. Bathrooms were particularly "splendid". Mini bar prices were reasonable. It took us about 10 minutes walk to the top of the Ramblas/Catalunya Square via main streets. I would not advise using side streets late at night but stick to main routes where we felt totally safe. There were some restaurants nearby, we ate in a Chinese which was very good. There is a 24 hr supermarket on same street as hotel (2 mins walk). All in all a great base at reasonable cost and I would recommend it to others.
Stayed at this hotel just before Christmas 2003.
The hotel is very clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. They arranged for tickets to see Barcelona FC including a car from door to stadium and back again.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Barcelona, It's only 5/10 minutes from Placa de Catalunya.
Great location,helpful staff,and unusually quiet.Perfect!
The hotel is only a few minutes walk from Playa de catalunya and la Rambla,but once inside our room it was very quiet.There was no view as such from the window but this was more than made up in the care and attention the stuff gave us.
Buffet style breakfast was reasonable,even for a vegetarian.We were amazed that every day our room was serviced(we really became quite lazy). Only one small complaint though, on rainy days and we had several there were not any English speaking tv channels (except CNN), and of course the ones you have to pay for!

J got organised and headed off for her first full day of the conference and I was pondering the various options. It's seems a bike hire and/or a guided bike tour is a great idea in the bicycling-mad city, but I ended up deciding to hold that for another day and instead utilise one of the huge fleet of open-topped double-decker bus services circling specific city routes offering a hop-on hop-off service. We'd used a similar service in Madrid and it was a great way to get a feel ...
... windows aren't as impressive as the rose window of Notre Dame, cleverly however one window is covered by a slight smoke, merging all the colours in a hazy blur. The colours themselves aren't by accident, every minute detail is rich with intent, everything telling a different story as you progress through the church. Once we have finished the audio tour we head off, we're going back to the hostel but want to get some drinks for the night on the way back. As we exit ...
... I have finding a place are fantastic, so I smiled and sighed an emphasized "Yessss." once I made it to the station.
I finally found Zoe, equally hungover, and we decided to get lunch and take a much needed nap in a park. Perfect day to do nothing.
It was my last day in Barca and I was already satisfied with the time spent. That night we would all sit and watch the US game (I don't want to talk about it, damn you Ronaldo) and I would find ...
... Cathedral so there was no way we were getting off the bus. You forget how crowded European tourist attractions are. There are enormous numbers of tourists in this town at the moment, all nationalities but always lots of Americans ( both young and old), plenty of Germans, and lots from the UK. Barcelona is the biggest town in Europe on the water so attracts lots of tourists from other parts of Europe. What was ...
... to the city of Tarragona. Navigating the train system was a bit of a stressful experience but it gave Matt a good chance to practice his Spanish! Fortunately we were able to figure out which train ticket to purchase and we caught the train on time. Once you figure out how the train system works it's a great mode of transportation. The train ride also ...
