Historical Traveler Reviews Ronda Hotel Barcelona
You get what you pay for
Got there late to be met with a great reception from the local band, a group of drunks with the odd drum.
Staff very good indeed
Room kinda small,
View from the window was an sqare area that resembled a disused lift shaft.
Room kinda clean Location good 10 minutes from the Ramblas
Would pay more for better quality The internet pictures are somewhat generous to the actual hotel. It actually straddles across two seedy looking alleys.
I only do coffee but still I had to q for a seat Barcleona outshadowed the negatives of this hotel
Its budget you get reasonable value for money
Stayed in this hotel from 13 - 16 Feb 2004 and found it to be ok. The rooms are small but clean with nice bathrooms. The bed however was rock hard - be warned. It was also quite noisy from inside (you can hear the water rushing down the pipes from floors above) and the windows are not double glazed so there is quite a bit of street noise. The staff were friendly enough. Breakfast was ok but busy on Sat and Sun. Location not too bad - near the university and at the top of the Ramblas. Would probably consider staying somewhere else next time but if this was the only choice then I'd go back it wasn't that bad.
The room was very clean and although on the small side it had an excellent bathroom. One problem of the room was that the bed was very uncomfortable-gave me a back ache. The staff at the front desk were very plesent and helpful. Not in the best location as a bit way from tourist areas but because of the cheap price that what you would expect.
Hotel Ronda - a must read
The hotel looked very nice in the picture and was central, which was why I booked it. The staff on arrival were friendly but the rooms were small.
The room we were allocated had an infestation of bed bugs, which we did not find out until the next day when we started itching and noticed that we were covered in bites. It wasn't until investigating the room and finding the bed clothes covered in blood spots that we realised what was causing it.
We were immediately moved to another room, which was fine, but it was too late then as both myself and girlfriend were covered in itchy red lumps.
There is a square outside the hotel which attracts drunks until the early hours of the morning, they can be clearly heard if staying on the square side of the hotel and also the comings and goings of nearby hotel rooms can be clearly heard.
We did stay over Xmas for a week, so expected it to be busy, but I didn't expect to have to queue for a table at breakfast time.
The Ronda is a very reasonably priced (for Barcelona) 3 Star hotel. The rooms are smallish but are well furnished and well decorated. The balcony is massive (if you request one). The breakfast isn't the best, not much choice and a little overcrowded. The location is spot on however. Its about a 10 to 15 minute walk to the centre of Las Ramblas where you can walk 5 mins North to Plaza de Catalunya or 10 mins south to the harbour or carry on 5 mins East to the Gothic Quarter. The backstreets could be a little daunting if you are walking alone so it may be better to get a taxi, they are very cheap. All in all I'd recommend this hotel, its much cheaper than hotels on Las Ramblas and is of a decent quality.

... who wanted to create a village that represented all the different regions of Spain in one place for the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition, so it has been here almost 85 years. They visited 1600 villages across Spain and drew from that the building designs most representative of that particular area....clever idea, I thought and useful to the likes of us who are faced with the whole of Spain and not enough time to see it all.
... in the beacon bar, which was nice, tea at a restaurant that wasn't so nice. Time Square at night is amazing, lights and people dressed on costumes, and people everywhere, shops open til midnight. While we were there there was a bikie rally for 9/11 hundreds of motor bikes went past, it took about 10 minutes to cross the road - pretty awesome. Love you, miss you - and even though I don't think you're reading this write soon xxxx P.s. have you got the postcard ...
... out with me that night.. I felt quite a few hands down my pockets at various stages of the night!! I feel so lucky that I haven't been pick pocketed in barcelona yet! The next day I went to sagrada familia, the most amazing cathedral I have ever seen! The architecture is out of this world. It feels really modern but at the same time has a gothic feel to it. I am seriously convinced Gaudi was on drugs when designing his ...
I'm not entirely sure where to start with Barcelona. I was there for a week longer than I anticipated because I had so much fun and didn't want to leave. I met up with my friends Jess and Roxy and we decided to get an apartment together for one week. We were in a great location with La Rambla just one block away, the beach was only a 5-10 minute walk, and our favourite club was only a 2 minute walk. It worked out great! It was one of the ...
