Historical Traveler Reviews Salles Hotel Pere IV Barcelona
Just got back tonight from Barcelona.
We stayed for 3 nights and found the hotel fantastic value for money. We booked through alpha rooms--- and got breakfast included for about £55 per room per night.
As the previous review said the area is mostly light industrial ( I have never seen as much graffiti anywhere else!) but a short walk to the highly efficient train system. There is a couple of bars restaurant in short walking distance but many aren't open very late. the majority are down at the port. On our last day we went to the park with the famous gaudi salamander. The whole park was simply amazing the part we most enjoyde out of our whole stay a lovely relief from the big bustling city which we didn't find to be anything amazing in itself but of course there are the museums and highly decorative gaudi buildings to visit.
Stayed there in November 2004.Rather shocked at the location,it appears to be right smack in the middle of some sort af industrial area.No shops or bars within walking distance.But only a 20 minute jaunt to the magnificent sea front.The room although large are very dark and the tiny windows don't help matters.The room was painted bright yellow and pink which is fine if you like doll's houses.The bathroom was large and had some lovely toiletries which were refreshed daily.The air-conditioning was a joke.the room actually got hotter with it on the lowest setting(??).The dining room at breakfast was very nice,lots of choice and well serviced by it's friendly staff.The only gripe here was a couple who could not read the ''no smoking'' sign and lit up after thet had finished their meal...the staff saw this and did not ask them to stop!!.The reception was a delight the staff very attentive and polite.So, to end,a good hotel in the wrong area.
A Great Place to Stay from the hussle and bussle of the city
We stayed at the Hotel Pere IV from 29 Dec - 1 Jan 2005. The first thing you notice about this hotel is how clean, bright and airy it is. The reception staff spoke extremely good English and couldn't do enough to help.
Our room was nice decorated with co-ordinating furnishings and again spotlessly clean. My only negative comment was that it was a little small, but there again we only used it to sleep in so that wasn't a problem. Having the free soft drinks in the minibar was a nice touch.
The choice at Breakfast was very good. However on our second day there had been a large influx of arrivals and everyone seemed to come down to breakfast at the same time. The breakfast room is smaller than the dining room and is located on the 1st Floor. As it is smaller we had to queue for about 10 minutes to get a table along with a lot of other guests.
The hotel location is quiet and whilst it is not directly in the City Centre, the Bogatell tube station (on Line 4) is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. We bought a 2 day travel pass which saved us some money.
We would definitely go back to this hotel again.
5 Star Performance
Booked the PERE IV for a 3 day stay for our wedding anniversary after reading the favourable reviews here, so i just had to return the favour & let everyone know how we went on.
Well as previously stated in the reviews it certainly lived up to all expectations. The hotel itself was immaculate throughout & the rooms were excellent, extras in the bathroom included the usual shampoo & sewing kit etc but also a razor & a pair of toothbrushes as well, the fridge in the room contained free water & soft drinks and was refilled every day - more like 5 Star to me. There was plenty of choice at the buffet breakfast in a large very smart & comfortable dining room on the first floor.
The reception area was well laid out with comfortable chairs & sofas & the bar staff were very friendly & served a nicely chilled Estrella Damm lager, & yes they gave you free crisps as well.
The hotel was away from the hustle a bustle of the Ramblas but this was a bonus as there was little noise at night ensuring a good nights sleep. Taking a left out of the reception area & then a first left it was a 10 minute stroll down to the sea front arriving at the beach/Marina area. The RAMBLAS was roughly a 25 minute walk or about 5/6 euros in a taxi. We bought 2 days tickets for the TOURISTICO bus service 20 euros each but was excellent value for money as it took you around all the many sights & tourist attractions & you could hop on & off the bus as many times as you liked. If you like your football i would recommend the NOU CAMP museum.
Booked the Hotel (about a month before our stay through Alphas Rooms £178 for 3 nights bed & breakfast - what value. Thoroughly enjoyed Barcelona & if we visited again we would definately stay at the PERE IV. Can't speak too highly of the place - go for it
Fantastic Hotel **Highly Reccomend**
An excellent hotel, extremely good value for money (£127 for 2 nights for 2 people, including breakfast).
The hotel location is perfect for the olympic village and the many fantastic fish restaurants, whilst close enough to hop on the metro and be in La Ramblas in 10 mins without staying bang in the centre of Barcalona.
The pool, jaquzzi, sauna and gym were clean, the bedroom / bathroom was immaculate.
Free mini bar for soft drinks, a wonderful little touch to find upon arrival and friendly staff also.
The Hotel Bar was reseonably priced and you get free crisps with your drinks!!!
All in all a great place to stay for a short break away.
Great place, great location, clean and friendly
Just arrived back after a 2 day stay at this hotel, I totally agree with all the other reviews. The hotel is ideally situated just a stroll away to get the metro. Breakfast was ample, a choice of continental or cooked. The hotel bedroom was very spacious with a large bathroom. Free mini bar for soft drinks.
Booked the hotel with Alpha Rooms and got a great deal U feel, £160 for double room 2 nights. If you are staying with a family or just a couple it is ideal.
Barcelona is such a beautiful city and I cannot wait to return soon.
Don't stay anywhere else!
I have been to Barcelona several times and this is by far the best hotel. Not only is it clean and tidy, we were provided with free soft drinks in our room and the views from our balcony were stunning. The staff are friendly, there is a indoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna and gym for your use and the foos is excellent. The surrounding streets contain several bars, restaurants and nightclubs where locals seem to hang out as this is a prodominantly residential area. A 10 minute walk leads you to the sea front where you will find a beautiful beach with a multitude of restaurants and clubs plus the casino and more. A walk along the sea front will take you on a scenic (although slightly) longer walk into the centre. Why stay anywhere else.
I have just returned from a long weekend at this Hotel. Where do I start!! The Hotel is absolutley imaculate! The staff are all extremeley friendly and helpful at all times. The food was great! In fact I cannot fault this accomodation at all and I would highly reccomend a visit. Although it is not situated in the middle of the hustle and bustle, a taxi ride to the Ramblers costs just 4 euros. I would rather stay in a clean hoel like PERE IV than stay in a dirty hotel in the centre of town.
A great value hotel
I agree entirely with the last review. This is an absolutely spotless clean hotel with a good breakfast & a well stocked bar. Although we ate out in the evenings, the hotel does have its own restaurant and the menu looked good.
Yes, it is a bit off the beaten track but the Metro at Bogatell (for the quayside area) is about 3 minutes walk away and at Marina (for the centre) is about 5 minutes walk. Staff speak good English and are very helpful - they will arrange taxis if required.
There is a free mini-bar in the room (soft drinks only) and a room safe in respect of which you pay a 30 euro deposit for the key.
All in all an excellent place to stay if you don't want the noise of The Ramblas.
A Great Hotel, Conveniently Located
The Pere IV Hotel is located in an "up and coming" area. The hotel has been beautifully retrofitted to an old industrial space, a multi-story garage I believe. Recently opened, all of the common areas are in pristine condition and compare well with moderate to expensive hotels elsewhere.
Our room featured two twin beds and a twin-size day bed. The bathroom was large, more in keeping with American hotels. The desk staff spoke English reasonably well so communication was very easy for us.
Although not located in the hub of things, the Pere VI is very close to a metro stop. Less than 5 minutes walk, I'd say. We were three women traveling and felt very comfortable walking to and from the stop even fairly late at night. We were able to reach most sites within 20 minutes or so by metro.
One drawback for the location is the lack of stores and restaurants in the area. There's very little to choose from near the hotel.
The hotel was a tremendous bargin for the quality. I would definitely stay there again and have already recommended it to friends.

... too impressed with the whole cleaned sheep heads in the cabinet - still with the eyes bulging. The 2nd day we did the tourist thing and boarded the city explorer buses for a tour of the city. This is a great city, and unlike my opinion of Athens, I can see why this city was awarded the Olympics in 1992. Just a great city. Apparently it was pretty ****** before the Olympics but they upgraded everything and beautified the city. It is now spectacular. ...

While taking in the view there was a busker singing amazing tunes, playing guitar, we were almost alone in such a touristy spot and the kids were happy taking it all in.
It was one of those moments!
After another siesta and light lunch back at the apartment we wandered La Rambla again.
