A great hotel in the middle of everything. The staff was very nice, the wifi great and there were plenty of restaurants in the area. We watched people on Las Ramblas from the hotel balcony.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Lloret Ramblas Barcelona
Rude staff ruined last night in Barcelona.
This is a basically nice little hotel, no frills, but pleasant and in a great location. But one rude clerk really put a black eye on the place for me.
Our past night there, I bought a Cuban cigar and a nice Rioja and planned to spend some time before bed on the balcony over the Rambla, people watching and reflecting on my trip.
The night clerk (this was about midnite) denied me access to the balcony, even though there were already people out there. He was super rude about it. He said he had to close it so that guests of the hotel would not be disturbed by noise (this is rediculous, worrying about a little noise on the Ramblas). I had to have my wine and cigar on the street, surrounded by homeless people and almost getting knocked over by a fight that broke out. When I returned to the Lloret, the balcony was still open and there were even more people out there. When I asked the clerk what the deal was, he smiled and put up his hands and said "Sorry" in a really condescending way. When I tried to press on, he pretended not to understand English, even though I know he did (everyone speaks good English at this hotel).
This may not sould like a big deal, but I had been planning this balcony thing all day. And if he had been nice about it, probably I would have let it go. But he was a total ------. My money will go somewhere else next time.
BTW, the rest of the staff was great, especially the British guy Alex, and if not for this -------, maybe 4/5 instead of 2/5.
Best budget hotel in barcelona
Best budget hotel i have been to, spotless, clean towels every day[only there 3 nights] reception daytime staff speak excellent english but were very obliging when we practiced our spanish on them. Close to everything you need for a great weekend and no complaints from staff when we got in at 4am in the morning[ we were celebrating a friends 50th birthday]. Good contienental breakfast for 4 euros each per day, we will definitly be going back.
Great location, no frills
The main thing to recommend this hotel is the location, which is at the head of La Rambla very close to Placa Catalunya, making it very accessible. It is also extremely noisy and we were awakened every night by drunken revellers. Ask for a high floor in the back of the building, off the main street. The bathrooms were newly remodeled, very nice.
Bedroom was bare-bones, no dresser or armoire, tile floor, and (ick!) only overhead fluorescent lighting. "Balcony" was hardly big enough for one person to stand on, more for looks than utility. The worst thing was the paper-thin walls, we heard everything (yes, everything) our neighbors were doing.
This hotel is great!!
We have just returned from our second weekend away at the Hotel Lloret. Had room 102 this time, at the front, first floor, balcony looking down on Las Ramblas. The room was spotless, linen crisp, radiators worked. For the price, we were amazed to have a daily maid come in a clear up and make the bed. Plenty of noise well into the night from the street below, but that is why we go to Barcelona, for the excellent buzzy atmosphere. Eat all you like breakfast for only ?4 extra - bargain. Staff friendly. Stay in this hotel, and go and spend the money you have saved in the tapas bars!
Location is everything, as long as it's clean.
Stayed in this cheap, basic but very clean and no-nonsense hotel at the top of the Ramblas......couldn't be more central and if you want a comfy, cheap and clean bed for a short stay, lok no further.
This Hotel has very good price quality. especially the location is perfect, in the middle of the city, the ramblas. The rooms are basic but ok, beds are good. Our room had very little daylicht but was very quiet. The light in the room was too bright but for us this was the only major thing.
A disappointment, rude staff, go elsewhere!
We stayed at the Rivoli Ramblas for 3 nights and the Lloret for 3 nights. What a drastic difference! The Lloret rooms were tiny and the elevator was ancient. The worst part was that you have to leave your room key with the rude staff every morning before you take off for the day. That might not be a problem except they don't even check ID when you return to get your key. Your stuff could be stolen from right under your nose! The A/C was also old and the place was just plain run down. Granted, the Rivoli cost more but it was well worth it. THIS PLACE WAS A DUMP. But, if you are super low maintenance and trusting, then it might be your place because it is, afterall, on the Ramblas (which is a great area to visit).
Good Hotel, Great Location
I picked Hotel Lloret for a weekend stay based on the strength of other TripAdvisor recommendations, and I was not disappointed. Situated directly on Las Ramblas, only a stone's throw from the bustling Placa de Catalunya, I was very pleased with Hotel Lloret's central location.
The staff were friendly and spoke English, and the room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, even featuring a small television and air conditioning. For the price (approximately 80 Euros per night for a double), it was perfect.
Good family hotel
Hotel Lloret is a good family hotel. We stayed in May 2003 (my husband and I and our 2-year old son). The rooms are small (3mx3m) but very clean. It is thoroughly cleaned every day, with new towels.The staff is extremely friendly. We payed 75 euro for a double room and an extra cot for our son (no charge). Breakfast is not included, but you pay only 4 Euro for an all you can eat good breakfast. The hotel is as centrally located as it can get near de metro station and bus stops at Placa de Catalunya. We first stayed at the 3rd floor, where the rooms are a bit more cramped than at the 1st floor where we stayed the rest of our holidays. By the way, it was the only hotel that still had rooms available a few days in advance, all the others were fully booked! It is to be adviced to book in advance in Barcelona.
A few days in Barcelona .....
Ideal hotel at the top of The Ramblas if you're into the laid-back approach. Clean, tidy, basic but excellent value for money. Breakfasts were a little plain and repetitive but would stay there again. Not for anyone looking for creature comforts.

... told us they are booked up 2 months in advance. So much for that idea they put us onto another local restaurant and we left it up to the waiter to order for us which was just superb Mexican style tapas very yummy!! 22 May Today we decided to get really adventuresome and try our luck at using the underground metro. We decided to visit the Sagrada Familia and do a tour through the church and up one of the towers. We negotiated the metro no problem even had to change ...
... Gaudi designed and started last and it is amazing so at least I got to see that part. The plans he made for the rest of the building were lost in a fire so over the many many years since it was started there have been different architects working on it so it's sort of mash up of designs. Our hostel was pretty cool, it had a few different common areas and an awesome rooftop bar. Everyone got dressed up and ...
... was very happy and even collected some sand! We then caught the bike taxis back up to the main street, when we were waiting for the bike taxis two pulled up at the same time. To decided who would ride us back they flipped a coin we thought this was very funny! Our driver/peddler showed us the sights and told us local facts about the places wet rode past. It ended up being a good decision to catch it back and realativey cheap! We didn't realise how far we had walked until we ...
... and then off to the Picasso Museum which offers free
admission after 3 pm on Sundays. Apparently that news got out and there was a mass of folks waiting for 3 pm. We decided to head of for some fraps at Starbucks. Well we got a shake up there, the two Grande drinks cost 9.60 Euros! ($13.40). After one hour we went back and the line was still quite long so we decided to return to the apartment, have ...
First night in the Travelodge was a success, after a €36 taxi ride from the airport (for 10min journey) Needless to say the northern charm failed on this occasion, he was not open to negotiation. We've now successfully navigated our way across Barcelona via metro and foot to our first hostel, Generator. It's amazing and all the people we've met so far are really friendly - we got free donuts, winner!! Now we're going to explore... Over and Out ...
