A modern and comfortable hotel, but it's hard to get a good night's sleep as it's located in front of a lot of life on the Ramblas. A perfect spot if enjoying the nightlife is to your liking.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Serhs Rivoli Rambla Barcelona
Upgraded to Junior Suite!
I had emailed ahead to warn them we wouldn't arrive till about 11.30 p.m. No problem, they replied. We checked in and were told of the upgrade. Junior Suite (Rm 123) has to be the best room in the hotel - in the 'old' part with a glassed in little balcony overlooking the Ramblas. Big doors slid across to shut out light and all noise.
Terrific bathroom, spotlessly clean, endless delight in sitting and watching the Ramblas in action!! We didn't eat in the hotel at all ...
took everyone's advice and went out to find food.
I booked this hotel thanks to all the positive reviews. And you were all right - it's excellent.
Would stay here again
We stayed at the Rivoli Ramblas September 18-22, 2003. We found the location ideal and the hotel clean and friendly. We were upgraded to a superior room on the 6th floor facing the back, which had a large balcony with views of half the city. The superior room had a bedroom and separate living room. Breakfast was included in our rate and was great - a large selection of hot and cold foods and a gorgeous outdoor garden deck to eat it in. The staff was friendly and helpful, everything was very clean. Although nothing stands out as special about the hotel, a good clean room, good location, and friendly staff is all I need!
Good location, nothing special
We spent two nights at the Rivoli Ramblas in November 2003. The location is excellent - right on the Rambla and just 150 m from the Aerobus stop on Plaça de Catalunya. There was a large supermarket right across the Rambla and a small cafe ("Moka") next door, where you can enjoy a breakfast for 2,50-5 euros. Hotel breakfast was pretty expensive, 18 euros. Our room was clean and spacious, but nothing special. We were also offered a room at the back but preferred a view to the Rambla. There was some noise but it didn't disturb our sleep, not even the dozens of caged birds on the Rambla. We did enjoy our stay at the Rivoli Ramblas, even though it was a little on the expensive side (190 euros per night) regarding the overall quality . I guess 100 euros was for the room, 90 euros for the location.
Clean, quiet and convenient
We stayed five nights at the Rivoli Ramblas in July 2003. As everyone else says, the location is excellent, being at the top end of La Ramblas, near Placa da Catalunya. Our room was not at the front and was completely quiet. Note though that some rooms have recently been renovated; being on a special rate, ours wasn't one of them. However, our room was spotlessly clean, a good size, and had a good bathroom with bath and shower. The furniture and bathroom had that 'well worn' feel, but this did not detract from the overall nice feel of the room.
The aircon was totally controllable and very effective. On our deal, breakfast was an extra 20 euros each per day, which we felt expensive and so never ate at the hotel. There is a decent bar/cafe next door or a choice of other good bars on La Ramblas where you can get breakfast for about 5 to 8 euors each. The staff were very helpfull and friendly.
Our only disappointment was the roof terrace; we imagined this to have panoramic views over the city and to be a great place for a pre-dinner drimk- it turned out to be a tiny area where you couldn't see much at all and there didn't seem to be any bar service. Overall, we definately recommend it.
We got a cheap rate from expedia so at £90 a night, this was a fantastic truly 4 star hotel. The decor is up to date and excellent quality, and when it was 40 degrees outside the air conditioning was the a life saver! A really comfortable hotel, with a good size room, we asked for a quiet room at the back (as this hotel is right on la Ramblas) and got exactly what we wanted - peace and quiet. The location couldn't have been better, and it is especially handy for those of you who like to shop! At the top end of La Ramblas, this hotel has some great shops and dept stores on the doorstep, and some great restaurants just a few minutes away. I can't comment on the hotel food as we ate out every night. I would definitely recommend it, especially if you can get a good deal!
Just back from a cruise on Brilliance of the Seas. We stayed at the Rivioli Ramblas a four star hotel just south of Pl. Catalunya one night pre-cruise and three nights post. The rooms we had were excellent, very quite, good mattress, great air conditioning, huge bath room with tub, in-room safe and all very modern. The staff was wonderful. Barcelona is fabulous. Enjoy.
My husband and I stayed here last year - and loved it. Its location is the best - you are close to everything. And late at night - you can just walk outside your hotel and see all the action. The staff was also very friendly and helpful - and they spoke english. I would highly recommend this 4 star hotel.
This was so convenient
I've just stayed here for a long weeknd (4 days) with my girlfriend. What an excellent choice for location and accomodation. The hotel was spotless with everything we could need. We stayed on b&b (buffet style) where we could have eaten all morning. We had rooms on the back of the hotel which I believe is quieter than the front (facing the Ramblas) ours was quet but the front could get noisy in high season. We've never been to Barcelona before but would recommend it and the hotel to anyone. One tip - get a two day pass on the bus tourista this allows you limitless travel on two huge circuits of the city taking in most of the excellent sites. We'll definately go back.Regards Nigel
An unforgettable honeymoon
we stayed here for 6 days last xmas. the location is ideal(easy access to all the interesting places). Our room was big and quiet but the furnishing was old. very good bathroom and excellent breakfast!

After arriving in Barcelona late the night before we got a good nights sleep and were ready to explore the city. Our hostel was located 5 minutes away from Plaça Catalunya and Las Ramblas. We decided to purchase a 2 day bus ticket on the city sightseeing bus which has three routes which travel all over the city. We boarded the bus at Plaça Catalunya on the blue route which travels to all the iconic areas of the ...

Once it is finished, (it is only 60 percent completed, and has been under construction for the past hundred years or so) it will be the tallest church in the world, and definitely the most unique also. It is unlike any structure you will ever see. My descriptions cannot do it justice, so I recommend you look at the photos and decide for yourself just how unique it is. The inside is even more grand, and is the most finished so you ...
