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!

... to the Gods that they would survive, and in return would marry the first woman they saw when they got off the boat. C. de la Dammes was generally filled with desperate women looking for a husband. The tour ended in Parc de la Ciutadella, where Leon recited us poetry that he had written to summarise the tour.
I will add here that I have now been on three different Sandeman’s New Europe tours- Munich, Barcelona and the Tapas and have found all three of them ...
... tour approches many significant landmarks. We decide to explore the Catalan Art Museum that showcases over 1000 years of Europe's best Romanesque art. The museum is located high up on Montjuic allowing for beautiful, expansive vistas of Barcelona. The 1929 Olympic venue, also located on Montjuic, is well kept and used today for concerts and various other events. At the base of Montjuic is the 1029 World Expo Fairgrounds. ...
... way back to near where we originally hopped off!!
Checking in we weren’t put off by the hostel. It appeared to have good facilities and a roof top terrace with a hot tub! We shared a room with 10 other people, we had bunk beds with little curtains for when you sleep. 2 shared showers and a toilet in the room. This is where we met up with Andy – Zarah’s friend. Andy has been living and working in the UK for the past 7 months as a bar tender at Crown Plaza ...
... They don't just willy nilly put it to market, make big bucks hand over fist on people's gullibility to all the marketing hype, and turn a blind eye to the myriad side effects. Plus they can freely label their products as to ingredients. They don't allow Monsanto to sue to override the people's voice about labeling (like the company is now doing in Vermont, the first state in the US to require labeling of foods with GMOs).
... enough my parents had been waiting within sight of where I was dropped but I walked past undetected. Turns out I'm a bit of a ninja without really trying. When we were reunited I sunk into our less than stellar apartment (worse than majority of hostels I stayed in but hey we didn't want to hang out there anyways) before grabbing dinner. Glass of fabulous sangria and all the travel seemed worth ...
