Historical Traveler Reviews Catalonia Portal de l'Angel Barcelona
Great hotel, but mind the handbag snatchers
The Albinoni is a wonderful hotel in a brilliant location. It is within the gothic quarter and a 5 minute walk from the metro in Catulanya plaza. The rooms are spotless, the staff friendly and the buffet breakfast is excellent value. We enjoyed 4 nights there while taking in the sights of barcelona including watch Barca beat Osasuna 3-0 at the Nou camp. The only downer on our trip was my wife's handbag getting stolen during a visit to the olympic stadium. The handabg was under a table at which we were sitting while having some coffee, the thief walked past the table kicked the bag picked it up and ran. His cheek was breath-taking and I would guess his desperation was probaly due to a drug habit. Apparently this sort of thing is not uncommon in barcelona, so do watch out
Fantastic location, excellent breakfast. My sister and I took my mum there for her 60th birthday in May and she adored it. We had a room at the front looking onto the pedestrianised street with a balcony. It wasn't the quietest, but it didn't disturb us at all, we soaked up the Catalonian ambience!! We originally were shown a different room which had no view and there were no problems changing it when I asked. There were 3 of us in a room with 3 single beds and there was enough space. It was very clean and serviced on a daily basis. The staff were friendly and helpful. It's easy to get to from the airport. I would suggest taking the airport bus rather than wasting money on a taxi, as it is only 5 mins walk (if that) from the bus stop. Overall, we had a great time.
We just spent the last four days at this hotel and were thoroughly satisfied. The location couldn't be more central for first timers to Barcelona. The touristic bus (which we highly recommend) is a block away as well as the cathedral and several good restaurants. We had a very nice room on the back courtyard which was very quiet. The hotel faces a pedestrian walkway which is very animated most of the day and early evening. The staff was very helpful and most spoke fluent English. One gentlemen at the front desk wrote a note for me in Spanish to get cough medecine at a pharmacy. The breakfast buffet was delicious and served in a pavilion in the back courtyard. My only complaint is that smoking was allowed in the breakfast room.
We stayed at this hotel approx. 3 weeks ago and loved it mostly because of its perfect location. Also, the staff was friendly and answered all our questions, about recommendations, directions, which beach, etc.
Does just what it says on the tin!
Booked this hotel via Expedia and chose the inclusive breakfast price which was definitely worth it. Excellent location. Good clean comfortable room facing rear courtyard - not a pretty view but quiet (apart from the drilling to fix some air conditioning in the shop next door on the first night until 2am!!! BUT not the hotel's fault). Lovely marble bathroom. Front facing rooms would probably be noisy as the pedestrianised street is always full of life! Excellent location - couldn't wish for better. Friendly helpful staff who spoke enough English; Breakfast buffet pretty good - juices, cereals, fruit, cheeses, hams, hot eggs and bacon, croissants, bread (& toast), yogourts, cakes, etc - even included special diet options. Bottom line - happy to recommend it for location comfort and value
This hotel is located in the heart of Barcelona, on a great pedestrian street. The rooms were clean, nicely decorated and very spacious. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Our trip to Europe included 4 different countries and this hotel by far surpassed all of the others we stayed in while the price was comparable. I feel very confident recommending this hotel.
Great hotel/great locatin/great city
My husband and I stayed here from April 6-9, 2004 and loved every minute of it. The location of this hotel was superb!! The room was very comfortable. The breakfast was very expensive, so we never had a chance to eat there. The hotel was very clean and nice. Barcelona is a wonderful city. I can't praise it enough. The "bus touristica" took us everywhere. You should really buy a tourbook or guide to Barcelona, because there is a tremendous amount of things to see. This is my favorite city and hope to spend about 6 months here at some time in my life. Old town is beautiful. Gaudi is fantastic. I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

Finding the perfect hotel in Barcelona for a family short break within budget can be difficult. I spent five days looking out in the internet, and after reading a lot of reviews, visiting hotel webpages and making strategic calculations over the Barcelona city interactive map, I decided the perfect spot for having access to the most central popular attractions (Barri Gothic, Eixample, etc), and also be within reasonable distance of everything else (Gaudi house and parks, Barceloneta, etc) should be somewhere near where the Catalonia Hotel Albinioni is. Even though there were other more popular and more expensive hotels in the area, I choose this hotel, and I was not dissapointed. The location of the Hotel is Excellent. In a wide peatonal and very busy street near plaza Catalunya. I was walking on the Barri Gothic streets within minutes of arriving the first day. Yet the interior of the hotel was surprisingly quiet and calm providing a good relief from the street outside very busy on pre-Christmas December 2003. The hotel provided me an excellent room with special disabilites requirements that I made when making the booking . The staff was very friendly and provided excellent service. It is true the breakfast is not that impressive and this is certainly not a five star hotel. There might be small deficiencies compared to a five star hotel, but it seems to me it will be difficult to find a better value for money hotel in Barcelona. I recommend to everyone looking for a convenient place to stay for a short break to enjoy what Barcelona has to offer.
I was happy with the Albinioni, the building was pretty, the location was excellent. It's on a wide pedestrian street full of shops and colorful street preformers, just one block from Placa Catalunya. Just take the bus from the airport, get off at Placa Catalunya and walk down a block, very convinent.Service was very good, rooms were modern, pleaseant and clean. Nice wood floors and balcony. We had a balcony facing the back courtyard so we weren't bothered by noise from the packed front streets.Overall our stay was excellent. The only negative was the additional 11 euros per person for breakfast, i thought that was a bit much so we just picked up pastries from the bakeries nearby and ate on our balcony.We rented a double room at the end of January 2004 for 90 euro, plus v.a.t. taxes and no breakfast.
Good value and location for price
Great location on the Playa de Catalunya. The staff was friendly and nice. Rooms are comfortable, however did not have air conditioning in May, they may turn it on in summer months (advertised as having it.
Nice small balconies at back, rooms are quiet. Front room face placa and would not be as quiet. Nice bathrooms and amenities.

The back streets of Gracia are full of little independent cafes and restaurants and loads of little art studios and shops. Again they were all closed but it was nice to have the freedom of looking around and getting our bearings without all the chaos. Craig and Alfred had a play in the park for a ...

After Pedrera, we went back to the cool shop Vincon (which was just next door). It is a pretty groovy shop, with lots of cool stuff. Then we went to a local market, Mercat of the Assumption, and got some tapas at the bar in the market (did we know it was going to be there? No. But it was a pretty good guess.). I had tripe! Yumm! N had some eggs and patatas bravas. It was all delicious.
... of the restaurants on our list from our hosts, problem is being a Monday many are shut for the day. We did find 1 of them open...which they recommended the Pork leg....plus their tapas. We had such a delicious meal! The pork leg was amazing, Gary rates it more than the German one at Hoffbrauhaus!! (Both cooked in different ways...but this one was amazeballs) we also shared some tapas and a bottle of red. It was a very tasty meal, and cheap too!! ...
