Mad city Barcelona

... color it or do a full wash down of the cathedral.

The inside was truly unlike anything I had ever seen before and trust me at this point I have been to a zillion famous cathedrals/ churches. The inside was originally intended to resemble a rainforest and what was truly different from old churches was that it gave a sense of warmth and brightness. Most cathedrals that I went to due to their stone facades were actually colder than the outside, and gave off a ...

... for 2 days as he has been unable to find a cork screw. All of the bottles of wine still have corks over here. We are quite impressed. Berlin, like Australia mostly has screw lids these days. It's been ages since I have opened a bottle of wine which has a cork inside it. And because of this, neither of us had a cork screw, or remembered to ask for one when we passed a restaurant. This was not going to stop Paul. He decided that the cork would come out whether or not he had a cork ...

... We both remembered the enclosed square so we went there and Bernie asked someone and they sent us back to the street Larry and I remembered. When we got there we asked again and they sent us to the Church we had seen. This time we went farther and found the sign and two men who were giving out brochures about the concert. They told us how to get to the church to buy tickets and when we got there it was a church we had passed by on our searches, ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Cortes Barcelona

    Small but perfectly formed...

    from

    Stayed there October 2003. Great wee hotel- a real find. It is a minute from both Place de Catalunya and la Ramblas- yet because it is in a wee alley, it was pretty quiet. Clean, well kept room. Friendly staff. For breakfast you get some melba toast, coffee a croissant and jam. Not a huge breakfast but enough to keep you going in a city where breakfast isn't usually included in the price. I'd go back there in a second for the price. Enjoy your holiday.

    Learn how to use the heating!

    from

    Although I am British and an EU passport holder, I am of Chinese origin from Singapore. My wife is Welsh and British. I was concerned that a previous reviewer had found the staff racist. Nothing could be further from the truth! Remember that Barcelona is the capital of Catalunya, and the inhabitants regard themselves as Catalans, and, in some cases, grudgingly accept that they are also Spanish. A small knowledge of the language also helps. It will not hurt to know the laws of the country either-hoteliers are obliged to view passports and in certain parts of Spain are OBLIGED to keep your passport for 24 hours, especially if you are not an EU citizen. The hotel is excellent value for money, excellent location, and the rooms are very clean. However, make sure you understand how to activate the heating/air conditioning! The breakfast is rubbish, hence I have given it 4 out of 5.

    Fantastic hotel for the price

    from

    My wife and I have just returned from Hotel Cortes where we had a wonderful break. The hotel is in an excellent position, just off the Ramblas. The rooms are basic but spotless and the restaurant was great.

    We would most definitely go back and have recommended it to family and friends. Very impressive for the money.

    Not bad

    from

    Stayed her for our honeymoon. very basic hotel but we were on a v tight budget when booking it and weren't expecting much. it was neat and tidy and the little restuarant was great. Staff were v friendly (except for one man who was a bit gruff but I think it was just his manner) they also held on to our passports for a couple of days which was odd. Room was on the top floor - literally just had a bed, table and bathroom. we were one of 3 rooms with a balcony - bliss to be able to sit out and sunbathe in the middle of November! was a bit of a pain not to be able to open a window at night as it was v stuffy and hot. (just had double doors leading to the balcony) Cleaning staff didn't always come on time and a couple of days we came back to an untouched room at 4pm. not a major issue as we didn't spend that much time there. all shops literally on your doorstep and stay open til 9pm which was great. found a couple of Irish pubs to hang out it! all in all a very good stay.

    Racist staff!

    from

    My friend and I (all non-white/european) had an unpleasant experience in Hotel Cortes when the hotel front desk manager told us they need to keep our passports.

    Excellent Location and Value

    from

    Located on a side street off Las Ramblas one block from Placa Catalunya. Short walk to Barri Gothic area. Take the blue airport shuttle (3.40 Euro) to Placa Catalunya - less than 5 minute walk to hotel. Our twin room (on the third floor) was clean, safe, relatively quiet, with a modern bathroom having good water pressure and great hot water. Excellent value for a 2 star hotel at $93 a night for our twin room (included all taxes in rate). Amenities included room safe, tv, small writing desk, some hair dryers available at the front desk, and hotel restaurant. Hotel staff was helpful and spoke good english.

    Very nice hotel

    from

    Very close to the shops, the Ramblas and the Catalunya Square and metro station. So location is good. The hotel is a 2-star but my room was cleaned every day, had air con, tv, safe and the staff were very helpful so I wouldn't be put off by the star rating at all. All in all a great place to stay.

    Great value in a pricy city

    from

    One block exactly from the Plaza Catalunya and 100 metres from Las Ramblas. Very helpful staff. Euros 123 for a triple room. No airco.

    Double glazing blocks out street noise.

    Good choice Cortes

    from

    Very nice place, and close to Ramblas yet not noisy. Got room P1 facing the street and great to people watch from the balcony. Nice big room.

    Clean, cool and bright. Lots of eating places close by. They ask for payment in advance. Safe and quite modern after the remodelling.

    Very nice

    from

    After forgetting to prebook our last night in the hotel I was staying disaster struck when I found out Barcelona was booked out (long bank holdiay weekend). We found Hotel Cortes just across La Ramblas from where we were staying (street just behind Placa de Catalunya & Hard Rock Cafe!!). It was extremely reasonably priced (at the time I think it was 17 pp per night). Large, bright, clean rooms with marble floors. Lovely bathroom with shower. The staff were very helpful. The resturant was quite nice if not a little cramped but served a good variety of food.

    Overall for value for money and standard, I would recommend this hotel (as I have to my friends).
