We arrived today in Barcelona at about noon. Our flight was very nice, a couple of two hour layovers and before you knew it, Barcelona! If we have not expounded upon our travel agent Lael Wood before, let me tell you she is incredible! Our hotel this time in Barcelona is paid for by the cruise line, hence we are a ways out of town. We took a two …

What a great day! We started the day early...internal clocks are off but give us another day and we should be on European time. We packed up the luggage and set it out for the cruise line to pick it up and take to our cabin. Then we headed down to catch a bus to Montserrat. Montserrat is about and hour outside of Barcelona in a group of mountains …

... street. I had gone about two blocks and realized that the elastic in my pants had worn out and kept slipping down.....so I went back to the hotel agreeing to meet them at the market. The rest of the group viewed a pretty plaza, walked down Las Ramblas ending up at La Boqueria. I changed clothes, took a taxi to catch up and saw them while they were still rambling ...

... Hey, have to keep dreaming big.

I made it back to the Hotel around dark and started packing up the things cause this was my last night in the hotel. I had plans on renting a little place by the beach, but I changed my mind. I like Barcelona, but just for a visit. I will remember the super clean city and fresh air. And one thing that it doesn't have are bugs. No flies, no mosquitos, nothing… Very nice change!!

Booked a flight and off I got!!

Barcelona Day One

... soup was heavenly. I could have had 3 more bowls of that! El Born is a happenin’ area. At one time it was a very bad neighborhood but that was all cleaned up for the 1992 Summer Olympics and now it is a desirable and trendy place to live. We weren’t too exciting tonight. Back to the apartment and some Spanish TV – no English language stations here – although they do have Property Brothers and Pawn Stars, both in Spanish. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Rey Juan Carlos I Hotel Barcelona

    Soulless hulk

    from

    The hotel is basically a massive characterless hulk - almost vulgar.

    Great hotel, but too far out

    from

    Stayed one night at the Hotel Rey Juan Carlos. Rooms are fantastic. Bathroom was large, modern and very clean--much better than the Arts, where I thought the bathrooms needed renovating.

    Only problem is this hotel is 20-30 mins by taxi from the city centre. If you want to be in the heart of the action, beware.

    Peace and quiet in a hectic city

    from

    Visited Barcelona from 23rd-25th Sept. Had not realised that this was the weekend of the big festival! The city was busier than usual and so there was no chance of getting a taxi in the evenings. The one and only problem with this hotel is the distance from all the action, it took approx 25 mins on the metro. The hotel was very smart and clean with a great buffet breakfast. It was very quiet, I can imagine that the hotels in the centre of the city would have been noisy, making it difficult to sleep.

    Tropical Resort in the City

    from

    We stayed at this hotel for a congress in August. The rooms were very nice and had beautiful marble bathes with a separate shower, tub and toilet area. The grounds, gardens and pools are truly beautiful, like a tropical resort in the middle of the city. The spa and work out facility were also very nice and first rate, except that due to vacations, they only had one therapist working so it was impossible to get a treatment. The hotel itself was beautiful but the front desk and concierge staff were not up to par with what I would consider 5 star service. However, the doormen, waitstaff and room service staff were quick and very helpful. Also, request a room away from the elevators as the ding when they arrive on a floor (it is an open atruim type lobby) and it can be heard in your room.

    Awesome hotel!

    from

    My fiance and I stayed at the hotel and we had a splendid time. We had a room that had a beautiful view of the hotel grounds and the port. The breakfast was gourmet; delicous eggs and freshly made waffles, and of course, a fresh fruit, cereal and danishes. We visited the spa and pools everyday and even got a chocolate massage! I 100% recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to visit Barcelona.

    Appauling service not worthy of 5 star

    from

    Appauling service not worthy of 5 stars in my opinion. I have stayed in a fair amount of hotels over the past few years all picked from the leading hotels of the world brochure and in my opinion this hotel should be taken off their lists beacause of the terrible front desk staff. We arrived to check in and there was no one in front of us at the desk, however the staff made us wait 15 mins before they could show us to our room or even deem to speak to us. I had booked a double room and was shown to a twin room. Room service was virtually non existant and indeed the brochures with the menu were withdrawn from all rooms on our 2nd night. We asked the concierge questions about what to do and where to eat and everything seemed too much trouble. In all the places I have stayed this hotel comes way below the bottom of the list. The only redeeming factor is that it is a beautiful setting and looks great on photos.

    Poor value for money

    from

    I booked this hotel as part of a conference package for the sole reason that it was close to the conference location. The room cost approximately E.270 a night for a double and we stayed for 5 nights.

    Good hotel let down by service

    from

    I stayed there as part of a conference. The hotel was very good, the rooms are modern and spotless and very large by barcelona standards. The food was good as was room sevice. My only gripe is the staff, they seemed a bit cold and stuck up.

    Optimal conference hotel

    from

    Booked it as part of conference package. Good connections (end of tube line nearby and close to Bernabeu Stadium) but out of city centre.

    Wonderful large rooms and nice garden. Separate outside pool (good!) and inside pool with gym; latter one not included in usual conference package. Nice restaurants and conference rooms. And reasonably friendly staff, nothing to complain really!

    Hotel lovely, service average

    from

    Beautiful hotel set a little out of Barcelona (costs about 25€ in a taxi into the harbour area). The highlight of the hotel is the beautiful Royal Fitness Suite - which you have to pay extra for - There is an indoor pool and an outdoor pool with jacuzzi seats. There is also another outdoor pool that you don't have to pay extra to use.
