Historical Traveler Reviews Inglaterra Hotel Barcelona
Great value, great location
Great find, small sister hotel of the more exclusive Hotel Majestic. Just down from Playa Catalunia, five minutes walk from top of The Ramblas but far enough away so not too noisy. Great boutique style rooms, big for a European city, spotless bathrooms, small balconies. Graded a 3 star as no bar or concierge but cant fault it on anything. Would definitely stay again, great value.
Check-in went fine, English speaking front desk person and was given two connecting rooms for myself, wife and two small children as promised. Was disappointed in the size of the rooms, dirty carpets, and lack of any drawer or shelf space for clothes. Size of the room only allowed a shorter than normal bed that would not accommodate my 6'-4" size. We went looking for another hotel that afternoon that offered more space and a more comfortable accommodation. Spent one night and wasn't charged for the other three nights of our reservation.
Worth Looking At
The Inglaterra is definetly worth looking at... After the warm reception i.e. Our room was ready when we got there at 9:00am! A real plus. The staff was courteous and helpful, the rooms were very clean although on the small side, and it really is RIGHT in the middle of Barcelona. We were pleasantly suprised. For a first timer in Barcelona it truly was a great starting point. Better yet, the price was exellent. We booked on Venere. In fact we had made reservations at the Ritz for 4 nights and decided to cancel because we found this hotel to be more centrally located.
Good value for money
In July '03 we stayed a couple of days at the Inglaterra, just a short stroll from Catalunya Plaza. A neat well kept place with all the usually stuff, clean and efficient. Don't know much about breakfirst, best idea is to get to the bar next door, they serve good ham and eggs! The rooms are quite and spotless clean, with air con, cable tv, bath tub and mini bar etc. But, it lacks a little bit of atmosphere. Overall good value for your money, in a hard to beat central location.
Clean, modern well-placed but not cheap
Nice, clean, modern hotel very well located near Ramblas, Old Town and main attaractions as well as near the University underground station. Hotel staff were helpful when asked for assistance.
May be a bit unpersonal (no Spanish feel but some Japanese touches) and a bit expensive. Next door cafe provides cheaper alternative to the hotel breakfast option.
Brochures and websites would have you believe that this hotel is the lap of luxury, but in truth we found it to be pretty basic. There was just one bar/cafe area, which when we visited had just two other guests reading so we felt pretty uncomfortable talking as there was no background music, or general atmosphere. We also had to go looking for someone to serve us a drink.
The room was nothing special either, although we couldn't get one with a balcony so maybe this made a difference. It was quite basic, with twin beds instead of the double we'd asked for. We'd already had to switch rooms because the first room we were given hadn't been cleaned so we didn't ask to move again.
The staff weren't particurlarly friendly. With the exception of the guy who had checked us in on the first night, nobody said hello or goodbye to us anytime we passed through reception, although we always did to them. Also, until we started putting up the "Do not disturb" sign we were being woken at ten every morning by the housekeepers, then again every fifteen minutes (or so it felt) until we got up and left for the day.
In all, I'd say the hotel was nothing special, apart from the convenience of the location. There was nothing Spanish feeling about it, in fact it lacked any character in general. It was very clean and "new" feeling but not quite in league with other hotels of the same standard. For a lot less money we could have stayed in a 'pension' just as central and enjoyed a much warmer and pleasanter atmosphere.

This morning it was up early to go to Sagrada Familia. It had been raining overnight but appeared to have cleared. Once I was in the line at Sagrada Familia it started ******* down again. By the time I got inside I was wet and cold and was a bit over the whole experience. I had pre-purchased an audio tour, half of which was outside, and a tower visit, which due to inclement weather was cancelled. A change of attitude later I was quite keen ...
... have their turn, first red then green. We think the green team is the 'home team' as they get the largest cheers! This is a sport taken seriously here and they travel here and there competing, today no exception. An announcement is broadcast over the PA system and it is the first English we've heard for the day, asking people to be orderly when leaving the square. That's it? Just one each?
The purple group still in it's circle ...
Waking with yet another Barcelonian hangover we were determined to still have our tourist day. After our tips from Richard we had circles and dots all over our map. Due to waking up at lunch time we decided to only do half of the tourist spots today and half tomorrow. First on our list was the Barclona Archway. The Arc de Triomf is a memorial arch built as the main access gate for the ...
... because the US Postal Service says that a package sent Express Priority will be delivered in 5 days, does not have much of anything to do with whether or not Barcelona Customs deigns to accept said package and deliver it! I am told that Customs can keep my package up to 45 days then confiscate it, send it back or, if I am very lucky, actually decide to deliver it. I also read after the fact of my package of health supplements and diet products,etc. not being ...
... kind of made some wrong turns here and there, and it was like being in the Twilight Zone! Because we ended up right where we started...heeeeheeee, I of course, had to explain to JW what the Twilight Zone was... in South Korea, they have not heard of it. We finally found our way out of there, but it really started to rain hard, so I HAD to buy an umbrella! And, NO it didn't say "I love Barcelona", it just has all the landmarks written all over it... not much ...
