Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Oasis Barcelona
Beware Room 404. I recently returned from a long weekend at the Oasis Hotel in Barcelona. Whilst my friends' rooms seemed acceptable, my single room had just enough room for a bed and a wardrobe. The bathroom was dingy, the shelf under the mirror was hanging off the wall and was covered in cigarette burns. The room smelled strongly of stale cigarette smoke. The sheets and pillowcase were clean, but the rest of the bed linen did not smell too good. On my return I found I was covered in bites and have been told that these are bed bug bites!! I would not recommend this hotel under any circumstances.
I recently stayed at the Oasis in Barcelona and I have to say it was a terrible experience. Although staff was friendly, breakfast was fine and subway was about a one minute walk, the hotel was nothing like the pictures say. If you view them, u think the rooms are fine, new and spacey. Nothing of the sort. I had a single room, although cleaned every day it was small and dingy. The paint looked terrible, there was hardly any space for my suitcase and when i walked to the other side of the room I had to be careful not tu bump my head to the low-hanging television. This was not a 2-star hotel as advertised for 60 euros a night. This was a backpackers lodge not worth more than 2 euros a night.
Excellent value budget hotel
Just returned from a weekend at the Hotel Oasis in Barcelona. The hotel is clean and comfortable, the heating was much appreciated! We found the staff very helpful, some speak very good english. The buffet breakfast was superb comparable to 4 star hotels we have visited.
Renovation work is continuing and is noisy at times. Due to the hotel's central location and the bus stop outside the front door street noise can be a bit of a problem so we would recommend requesting a room at the back. Having said that the location of the hotel is perfect for sightseeing. Altogether an excellent budget hotel choice and we hope to visit again soon.
Excellent value, close to Metro. Food was of a good standard & staff friendly & helpfull.Would recommend it as a value break,while remembering that as it is in the city and close to amenities there is road noise at night. The building works should all be over soon.
Barcelona 10 : Oasis 0
My friend and I spent 3 nights at the Oasis last week. I found it neither clean nor comfortable - I even found a pair of someone else's dirty socks under my bed! The room itself was pokey, dingy and unwelcoming, the outside door and the bathroom door had large dents where they had previously been 'kicked in' although the main areas of the hotel were OK but basic. Obviously as it was a budget hotel we didn't expect luxury but did expect a comfortable room, a shower that worked and plugs in the sink and bath. We spoke to other guests whose windows were cracked and held together with duct tape! I will NOT be going back again.
Great friendly hotel
Hotel very comfortable, reasonable and clean. Friendly staff. Situated close to all amenities. Im going back there again this year
Very affordable, central hotel
From 17.01 till 24.01 2004 we stayed in Hotel Oasis, which is sometimes also named "Oasis II". Our choice was made based on the good reviews in this forum as well as a very affordable price offered by hotelsspain for this hotel. No need to repeat the good reviews again - our (high) expectations were met. The third floor is still under renovation, so expect some noise during daytime. At night, the noise level caused by the (busy) road outside and by guests in other rooms is on an average level.We booked a double room (one bed for two) and were surprised to get a twin room instead. Luckily, the hotel staff arranged for us to move to a double room after the first night, which speaks for the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Most of the rooms are twin rooms, only 5 have double beds! So if you are looking for a double, make sure that you _really_ get one in advance. Otherwise, you will probably get a twin.Overall a good choice!
A Pleasant Surprise, Hotel Oasis
Just came back from Barcelona where I stayed at the Hotel Oasis. I've been to Barcelona before and knew what to expect from a 2 star budget hotel, but I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The room was small but very clean and had new furniture, tv, modern bathroom. The sheets were only changed once on the 4th night, the towels were changed daily. Shampoo, body wash, soap and even a shower cap were available.
Little extras like an elevator, magnetic key, hangers in the closet and hairdryer definitely put this hotel above average in my book. A free continental breakfast, although not supurb, was a great way to start the day and not have to worry about finding a place to eat. Also the hotel has a restaurant where they serve 'menu del dia' for about 12 euros which includes 3 courses. NOTE: The hotel is currently undergoing a renovation. I was lucky to stay at an already remodeled room, so if you're planning to stay at this hotel, make sure to inquire about your room in advance. Because of the renovations it can be loud at times but only during the day when most sightseeing would be out of the hotel anyway. Another great thing about this hotel is its location. A 1 min walk to Barceloneta stop on the yellow line and a bus stop in front of the hotel. The hotel is located on the edge of Barrio Gotico (Gothic Quarter) and close to Port Vell (the old port). A cab ride at night from the center of the city would run me about 4 - 6 euros. But take the Metro if it's still open, it's cheap and quick. From the hotel to the airport the cab ride was 19 euros. This 2 star budget hotel is great for the price and its location is convenient if you're planning to do sightseeing.
Very good value hotel
We recently stayed at the Hotel Oasis. We found the staff very friendly & helpful. The rooms although basic were clean & had ensuite facilities. Centrally located just 2 minutes walk away from Port Vell & less than 10 minutes walk from La Rambla. The only problem we encountered was the lack of parking. The hotel advertised that it had its own carpark which is in fact a public carpark costing at least 20 Euros per night. Other than that we had a great time & would recommend the restaurant & bar to anybody.
Loved the Oasis
We recently stayed at the Oasis Hotel, Barcelona and found the hotel very central (10 minutes walk to Las Ramblas), staff very helpful and the rooms, although small, very clean and maintained to a high standard. The breakfast buffet was really good also.

... We head off to Rome! I’d rather be in my shoes…
My feet are tired, my body done in…so much so I didn’t have the energy to go up to the pool. Needing a nap, but want to sleep tonight! Tomorrow our flight is set for 11:30am. Hope we don’t have to get to the Airport too early!! I want to relax and not feel rushed in the morning! UGH….this means packing again! Oh ...
... I'll let the photos describe. First stop was the church to hear the boys choir and organist (beautiful). It felt quite intrusive though as 50,000 tourists crammed in, taking photos whilst the monk was conducting the service, then walking out before it finished. High above us a steady stream of people could be seen walking past the black madonna kissing her feet (or using it as an opportunity to get a good view of the choir). All a bit of a spectacle really, which ...
... towards the wharf area and made our way to "La Rambla" This is the main shopping street, with a central "Island" containing stalls & markets & the more exclusive "name brand" shops located down both sides of the street. We left Wendy & Bill to stroll at a more leisurely pace and headed off to view the Casa Batilo, La Pedrera and Sagrada Familia. These are extremely different buildings unique to Barcelona, designed by Antoni Gaudi. ...
... After we felt bad for holding the guys up in the restaurant we headed off to another bar. This one was a small bar that you didn't even notice was there as it was set so far back in the building, you had to walk down a decent sized door from the street to actually get into the bar. As we continued towards the back we realised why it was set so far back. There is a skate board ramp at the very back or the bar! We figured the way it was designed was to help the noise down.The ...
... the beach and expect them to be there when you get back. So we skipped the swimming and instead enjoyed bathing under the permanent yellow beach umbrellas.
On the way to the beach we stopped in at the Museo d'Historia de Catalunya (the museum of Catalan history). Then later in the afternoon we visited the Picasso museum. The line to get in to the Picasso museum was long and our feet were aching, but it was totally worth the wait! The ...
