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!

... May 1st is their Labor Day!) so we were pretty beat up at the end. We found another good restaurant around the block from our apartment so had a light dinner and headed home to bed.
Monday we didn't get moving until 11, mostly because Buzz slept till after 10. After breakfast we were reading about how to get to Montserrat and finally we took the easy way out and booked a tour instead of going on our own. The bus took us to the ...
... next machine opened up we lurched ahead and started to try and figure out how to get our ten time pass. Thankfully we made quick work of the ticket machine once we were in front of it and we made our way into the station. While we haven't made use of the public transportation in every city we have visited we have jumped on quite a few busses, trains and trams around Europe and I must say that Barcelona’s metro system is pretty darn good. The trains were never more ...
... degrees of emotions. We were happy to claim these traits as the Spanish in us. Bridget had a common stance on this with Marta. Back in Barcelona, we enjoyed a tour at night of landmark sights and areas including the Port of Barcelona, Sagradia Familia and other Gaudi buildings, and the repurposed bullfighting ring. It was a bittersweet goodbye when we were dropped off. I have promised to return, as was asked of me by Montserrat. I feel I have unfinished ...
... fan then this tour is certainly for you, booking and organising tickets was very easy through their website. with flexible tour times this allows for easier booking and is ideal for a school group. There was certainly a lot to be learnt about Barcelona FC club and the history of the club along with the minor and major achievements ...

succeeded in enjoying the beach, not about the nubile, topless hotties. And I really
enjoyed it; the breeze fans the skin and when that isn’t enough, the water is
just cool enough to do the job, and it is so buoyant and blue and beautiful,
even I could sort of float (I am not known for my swimming skills).
Of course I discovered a quaint, Brendaesque neighborhood just as I ...
