      Historical Traveler Reviews Grupotel Gravina Barcelona

      Great Value

      from

      Booked online directly from the hotel's website. Got a special for 90 Euro/nite. Great location -- 2 minute walk to metro; 5 mins to Placa Catalunya. Very very convenient to shopping, dining & sightseeing. Too bad hotel was full during 2nd leg of my trip, otherwise would've picked this over the other H10 hotels in Barcelona

      Better deals available than this

      from

      I was so disappointed with this hotel that it cast a bad light on the whole holiday. After reading the reviews on this site I was happy to pay what I thought was quite an expensive rate for the room. However, we were allocated the dark, mini size room next to the elevators (heavy-duty earplugs necessary) and the breakfast could only be called good if you are a fan of cold, crusty scrambled eggs and congealed sausages. After 2 nights here we checked out and went to the Tourism Office in Placa Catalunya, where we got a beautiful quiet spacious room in a 4 star hotel with a pool, close to Placa Catalunya, for 30% LESS!

      than we payed at the Gravina.

      Gravina = Excellent.

      from

      I have just stayed at the Hotel Gravina and it was one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed in. Excellent Location by the Ramblas, but in a qiuet side street.. close to the metro station for a trip to Parc Guell.. Rooms were lovely and very clean and the breakfast choice AMAZING... Even Soya milk and vegan/diet selection on offer (and anything else that the less health conscious could want!).. The staff are very friendly and when I had my bag stolen (keep an eye on your things at the Ramblas) they sorted out who to call to cancel my credit cards etc imediately and were most, most, most helpful. Highly recommend staying here.. I will next time that I visit Barcelona.

      Great hotel

      from

      Great location on a quiet side street, close to Las Ramblas. Nice room, modern bath, pleasant lobby. Wide variety of breakfast items on buffet.

      Would highly recommend.

      Brilliant

      from

      Lovely welcome at this 'easy to find', central hotel. Large, comfortable room and the breakfast is excellent. However, the best part of this hotel was the courtesy and helpfulness of the staff particularly during a minor crisis. Couldn't fault it at all and would recommend to anyone.

      Excellent place

      from

      Having just returned from Barcelona, I can honestly say that for the price this hotel is just about perfect. It is located close to the Ramblas on a quiet side street. The room we had was of a good size, spotlessly clean, with a comfy queen-size bed and a balcony on which to sit and enjoy a glass of Rioja. The ensuite bathroom was also clean, with some nice complimentary products and a powerful shower. The staff were very welcoming, very helpful and spoke good English and the place overall has a very friendly ambience. Highly recommended!

      Mini Me Sized Room For Full Sized Price

      from

      1 night in December 2002

      I was originally scheduled to stay at this hotel for eight nights. However, the quality of the room was such that I decided to check-out as soon as I had found an alternative place to stay.

      What I ended being assigned was more a monk’s cell than a single room in a three star hotel. It was tiny, with little natural light coming through the small window and a lot of noise from its location right by the evaluators. (Had the room being anything other than micro-sized, then perhaps this last point wouldn’t have been quite so noticeable as it was).

      I asked to change rooms and was told that all single rooms were similarly sized and situated. As to changing to a double room, well there was nothing they could provide for at least another four nights. There then ensued a discussion about whether I could actually check-out the next morning without incurring some form of penalty. (This despite the fact that their own terms clearly state that cancellations can be made up to 4pm on the previous afternoon).

      I ended up going over to the Hotel Colon in the Gothic Quarter. For about the same cost per night, I was provided with a very much larger, brighter, quieter and much better located room. One that contributed rather than detracted from my enjoyment of Barcelona.

      The staff and reception area at the Gravina were ok and the doubles may be fine. Also, it is well situated for easy access to the top of Las Ramblas. However, as I found, they are other options that may end up being better value and more pleasant, especially for the single traveller.

      Lovely hotel - great city

      from

      we stayed at the gravina in sept 2002 - booked via the internet.

      wonderful hotel - convenient for all the attractions but just far enough away or peace and quiet

      very helpful reception staff-rooms clean tidy and modern

      did not eat in the hotel so cannot comment on the food

      barcelona is a wonderful place to visit especially if you go at the end of sept when the la merce festival is on- religious/musical and arts together with parades through the streets of giant human models and fireworks displays. well worth a visit even for just a weekend

      Loved this hotel

      from

      Reception staff - very helpful, spoke good english. Location excellent for walking to main shopping areas/tourist areas. Clean, well looked after hotel. Quiet if you have a room at the back of the hotel - so quiet you would not know you were in a city.

      Really congenial atmosphere. Will book again.

      ... than the place where they had the Olympics. Barcelona definitely has a lot of interesting architecture, from medieval to Renaissance to the quirky Gaudi with his wavy buildings.

      Karen and John came to our hotel for a glass of wine before going out for dinner. Dinner was outstanding again, and we really enjoyed our cute waiter Manuel who made the best sangria! One last walk on Las Ramblas before saying goodbye ...

      So, we have our jerseys, we have our tickets and we are going to CampNou! I’ve got Messi on my back and Izzy has Neymar Jr. We are part of the Barca fan club for the night. The excitement is slowly building. We have tickets to a Champions League game - Barcelona vs. AC Milan. It is once in a lifetime opportunity. The crowd is expected to be in the excess of 80,000. CampNou is the biggest stadium in Europe. It has all the elements of ...

      Weather: 20 C (18 at Montserrat) and sunny


      A hearty breakfast and off to the station for local trains for today we are off to Montserrat and the home of the "The little dark-skinned one" or “La Morenata” or “The Virgin of Montserrat” or “The Black Madonna” etc. Having researched (thanks Lesley) the ticket options that can be purchased at the station, we picked the one to Monistrol ...

      ... A museum and audio tour complete the visit. Because of its location on the mountain, the views are breathtaking and it would be all too easy to spend the day up there, nestled in the clouds. Upon arrival back into Barcelona, we stopped in at a department store to receive a free glass of wine and a 'tapa'. While at the department store, we saw an advertisement for Wagner's 'the ring' that was playing in town, and was the ...
