      Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Ramblas Hotel Barcelona

      Excellent location


      Like many others I was spoilt for choice for hotels to stay at in Barcelona, we decided on the location and we could not have made a better choice. The hotel rooms were on the small side, but lovely and warm on a cold January weekend. Room service was a lot less expensive than other hotels I have stayed in and the rooms were cleaned every day. The staff were very friendly. In all could not have been happier with the choice. We were overbooked on the 1st night of out three night stay and put in the Citadanes Ramblas just opposite ( This would be an ideal if you were stopping more than a couple of days as it was equipped with microwave, dishwasher etc.)

      Nice Hotel


      A very nice hotel in a good location, but the room was a little small.

      Has a mini bar. You can get a non-smoking floor if you want. Less than a block to the subway station. The staff was polite and spoke pretty good English. The restaurant next door was nice for breakfast, fresh squeezed OJ and croissants. Didn't try out the breakfast at the hotel, but the desk clerk whispered it was expensive and probably be better to go somewhere else.

      Fabulous Location, Gaudi is Amazing


      December 2003 Searching the internet and deciding which hotel to take in Barcelona is no mean task!!! After many hours on the web and checking out tripadvisor we decided to book the Hotel Royal and so glad we did.

      This hotels location has got to be the BEST for seeing all the sights in Barcelona! We had read the reviews and knew the location was going to be a big factor to us, it was situatied right at the main square, and looking onto the Ramblas everyday was better than we had expected!

      The hotel rooms were beautiful and the staff were great.....what more could you ask for!!!

      The greatest hotel un barcelona


      what a hotel !!! after looking for weeks in the web, i decieded to take hotel royal. let me tell you, it was a great decisoin. we had a room in the top floor, with big window to the ramblas (no noise at nigth, double windows), and we could see the rablas and catalunia plaza all day and night. nice breakfest, the hotel crew was very nice, and the hotel was clean and pleasant. nice rooms, but the best thing is the location. i recommend you to stay in this hotel, great vacation !!!

      We could not have been happier


      My son had researched all of the hotels on or near La Rambla, and chose the Royal; we were com-pletely satisfied. We had not requested breakfast to be included, and it was a good decision. Their restaurant, La Poma is next door and less expen-sive, so I had room service each morning (I like coffee when I awaken). Service was prompt, and inexpensive. In departing, we rode to the airport with a young man who said the included break-fast, was "just ok". We did have a room with a large window overlooking La Rambla, and when my son went out alone, I spent much time in watching the street performers, passersby, etc. My son felt that one week was not enough to see all that Barcelona offers, and when we return one day, we will again stay at the Royal.

      La Rambla Centro


      I picked this hotel because of the reviews here. The location is superb, the staff friendly. As stated, the rooms are not well sound-proofed except for the windows. You could hear quite a lot from the other rooms. I did like the buffet breakfast. On departure, the bellstaff insisted I take the cab he chose for me rather than the one passing by. After I was seated and my luggage was in the trunk, I realized that there were 3.40 euros already on the meter and the driver had just sat down. The total price to the airport was 50% higher than the trip to the hotel.

      Royal by name, royal by nature


      We moved to this hotel after being disappointed with the Lleo. We waled off the street in August 2003 and got a double room rate of 120E. The rooms have double glazing and so are very quite. The rooms are sufficiently large and quite well appointed. Definitely at the upper end of the four star range and at 120E really exceptional value. The staff speak English. And the hotel is brilliantly located on La Rambla.

      Location! Location! Location!


      I booked this hotel to be in the heart of La Rambla, and it couldn't have been better located! Also, it was also only a 2 minute walk to Placa de Catalunya, which has a metro station, bus routes, and tourist information. Basically, the location was PERFECT! Several things AGAINST the hotel were: - Room was way too hot (no air con in March!)- Walls are thin (could hear everything in the toilet next door)- No tea or coffee in the room!- No view of La Rambla from our "inner" room (even though I booked over 4 months in advance, they could not give me an outer room at check in)- No natural light in the room (obviously!)- Hotel bar was very small and didn't serve coffee after midnight (although, you are on La Rambla to get anything you want, so this is a minor point!).Other things FOR the hotel (apart from Location) were:- Staff were very friendly, polite, and helpful (and they all spoke English)- Hotel was clean and well kept- Despite the location, the hotel was very quiet if you wanted to get away from La Rambla- Wide food choice for breakfast- Mini bar was reasonably priced Overall, the hotel's facilities were only average, but because of the location, I have rated it "above average". Perhaps if I had an air conditioned room overlooking La Rambla, I might have rated it excellent? I will never know!

      Royal Hotel Review


      The Royal Hotel in Barcelona is a very nice hotel. It is along the lines of a Sheraton or a Marriott in the US. I would recommend it highly. It is right in the middle of las ramblas, an excellent location. Also, it is very quiet - the windows must be noise-proofed.

      ... the Bocqueria Market, a famous market with an abundance of meats, cheeses, juices, and fresh fruit, all relatively cheap too. I wander around a bit checking out the variety before heading back out and making my way through Las Ramblas, up through Passieg de Gracia and to my hotel, about 20 min from the Market. Not a bad location at all.

      At this point, it is around 4:30, and I have a ticket to the Barcelona match at the Camp ...

      In spite of this set-back, we had a fabulous road trip, saw many wonderful sites, met some great people, experienced many memorable moments, stayed at charming accommodations and enjoyed a wide variety of delicious food and wine.

      Having had such an inclusive tour, I am already planning a streamlined 10 – 12 day trip to Spain incorporating the ...

      ... for the day before, so we missed the game. By mid-day, we learned that our car had been stolen back home. Yep. Our first reaction was to sulk in the apartment all day (which we did for a little bit), but we finally realized that **** happens and the rest of our vacation would be ruined if we couldn't let it go and enjoy it.
      2. As if the world was working against me, most of the activities and restaurants I had selected were closed. ...

      So much to see and do!

      ... smoothies, fruit platters etc,... Picked up our goodies and headed back to the apartment.

      After breakfast we caught the bus to Park Guell and got off the stop higher up the hill. Park Guell was designed by Antoni Gaudi. I really loved the serpent seat with it's broken tile designs surrounding the central plaza; the Salon of 100 columns with it's very clever tiled mosaics on the ceiling and the fact these columns also collect ...

      ... The church is all in the gothic style of architecture. You really need to look at the outsides more than once because there is just so much detail that you don't see on the first look. Gaudi spent a lot of time outside amongst the nature as a child so most of the theme is set around fruit, trees, flowers, animals and even shells. The minute details that you can only really see when you stare at it are fascinating. You can tell which bits are new obviously through the colour ...
