    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Suizo Barcelona

    Hotel suizo had a complete refurbish

    from

    We have just returned from 3 days at this hotel,very pleasant reception area and staff, with bar and snack bar on one side. Our room was average size, with a lovely new bathroom, with bath and shower, and lots of free goddies. A patio door opened up onto a tiny balcony. The sheets and bedspread were changed after 2 nights. We had room only but buffet breakfast was available at their sister hotel over the street, but coffee and rolls etc were available in the snack bar by reception. With it being on the main road 6 lanes of traffic...... it could be noisy. It is very handy for the cathedral 5 minutes, and the open top tourist bus 17 euros for the day,stops just lower down from the hotel. We caught the blue bus from the airport to Catalonya square for 3.55 euros each way, and then a slow 12-15 minute walk to the hotel

    Suizo very disappointing

    from

    I found my three nights at the Suizo very disappointing and poor value for money. It was advertised as having a restaurant, 24 hour room service and breakfast was included. Breakfast was actually at another hotel down the street which wasn't really what I wanted first thing in the morning. The restaurant and room service didn't actually exist at all.

    Our room was small and fairly clean although it didn't have a window. I complained about this and we were moved to another room for the last night of our stay.

    The lift is totally inadequate and the stairs felt a lot safer. Staff were perfunctory rather than friendly although they did look after our bags on the last day as we had a late flight and this was appreciated.

    On a more positive note this hotel has a fantastic location close to Las Ramblas so we spent minimal time in our room. I still wouldn't recommend it to anyone though. There are much better hotels in Barcelona for the same money.

    Spotless and convenient

    from

    The Hotel is in the heart of the city. Traffic noise is limited and there are no lively bars by the bedrooms. Like all the central parts of Barcelona the streets are cleaned at night so there is noise but the room is double glazed which keeps things manageable. The beds are good and rooms well cleaned each day to a high standard.

    The rooms are compact , spotlessly clean and entirely adequate. If you want a large room to recline in this is not the place but then again expect to pay much more. On the otherhand if you want to recline in a large hotel room pick another city there is too much to do and see.

    For a meal Gran Cafe is superb and great value, about 10 minutes walk.

    Noisy and cramped

    from

    I was dissapointed with the room, it was basically room enough just for the bed but at night the revellers and traffic will keep you up all night. The same company owns two 4*'s on the same street so I walked down and negotiated a new room in Gran Hotel Barcino. They were very nice about it and gave me practically the same price for the 4*, which was twice as large. After that I had a comfortable stay.

    Very welcome

    from

    After two nights in an absolute disgrace of a hotel ( the Del Mar) it was a delight to find the Suizo. Clean, comfortable and friendly staff

    Las Cucarachas

    from

    Low price and central location are what brought us to this hotel in the heart of Barcelona's Gothic Quarter. At the time of our stay, the hotel lobby and facade were under renovation. The resulting dust and noise were a bit annoying. The staff meant well but were lax in terms of recording/relaying phone messages (as there was no in-room voicemail available). Also, the heat/AC system made it tough to control room temperature. The gasser was the muy grande cucaracha (cockroach/waterbug) who entered our room from the bathroom. After a violent battle and some hard swats with a shoe, it finally died with a loud crunching blow. If we could have we would have moved to antoher hotel.

    Hotel Suizo - Stayed 11/26 - 12/3/02

    from

    The location alone makes Hotel Suizo great. And the price is right!

    The Juame metro stop on the yellow line is directly downstairs.

    All within a 15min. walk of the hotel:

    Las Ramblas

    Port Vell

    Museu Picaso

    Palau Guell

    Cathedral

    History of the City museum

    Plaza Rei

    Plaza Rieal.

    It is located on a busy street b/c of it's central location; but you can close the blackout drapes & we found that helped with street noise quite a bit.

    The staff was helpful & friendly. Also, if you are out late (ie, 3am or so), they lock the front doors, but someone is always staffed at the desk to let you in. This made me feel safe.

    Hotel Suizo - Visited on 08/09/02

    from

    Initially looking at Hotel Suizo from the ourside does put you off. Not because of the area, but purely that the walls looks quite dirty - but I guess this is from the the pollotion build up over the years.

    The reception area as wll isn't too updated & initially, we thought this was going to be a holiday from hell or 'faulty towers'.

    The rooms are very nice - plenty of space & a nice wooden polished floor - modern affect, & nice furniture that you may expect in a 4* hotel.

    Air conditioning & TV etc. The rooms have a keycard lock system & same for the lighting etc when you get into the room, simply put the key card into a slot & this activates everything for you.

    The maids came every day to clean etc & the hotel itself is very clean.

    For breakfast, you do have to go across the road (about 100m) to another hotel - but is a 4* hotel so you get the privilige of getting a better service.

    It does look like they are just in the process of getting Suizo's dining area up & running though.

    Hotel Suizo is very near to the centre.

    Take a right up the road past Suizo & carry onto a square, where there seems to be a lot of guards etc - seems to be some kind of government buildings or something - but it's a really nice square.

    Cayy on a bit further & you get to 'la ramblas'

    where street entertainers are readily present to amuse you.

    At the main part of Barcelona centre - you will see 'Bus Turistic' - busses that are open top where you can buy a day or 2 day ticket (2 day is 18 Euro's which is cheap!)

    Here you can visit all of the main attractions around Barcelona & get off at 1 of 38 stops & get onto the next bus, or bus after (last bus at 8pm)

    They have a tour guide who speaks Spanish, Catalonia & English on each of the buses.

    Barcelona seems a very safe city.

    We never saw any trouble, and police can be seen on a regular basis. The streets are very very clean - no rubbish what so ever.

    Enjoy!

    Comments on our stay

    from

    I found this hotel very uncomfortable. The room was very cramped and the decor dreary. Curtains needed washing. The blankets and eiderdown unsavory with one small pillow. It was very cold and there was no heating available. Breakfast, was served at another hotel (which was not mentioned). It is situated on a main road which makes it very noisy day and night.

    The only redeeming feature of this hotel is the central location which makes it a great base.

    If you have never been to Barcelona, it's a must. This was our 4th time exploring the city and there is everything about it to love. The food, the people, experiencing the sites, the ease of public transportation. The list can go on and on. Even our rental reminds us of our home in San Francisco. Jen found this amazing place that has plenty of room and is just unbelievably comfortable. The neighborhood is great ...

After wandering inside & out & visiting the museum underneath we catch the train back & find some tapas for dinner. Grant finds an Irish pub but unfortunately the chocolate place from last night is closed. However on the way I discover this shoe shop with a new ...

We were sat on the second to last row but the steward asked us to move to the empty back row for safety reasons (incase we crashed it was my job to hold all the passengers back until the steward opened the doors) little did he know, in the event of this happening Gill and I would of been the first to knock him out and get out the plane ourselves! The steward was quite a chatty fella and tried ...

    La Rocca Village

    A travel blog entry by onighjoy on Aug 03, 2013

    ... how the Spanish can develop such a poorly designed system. At the tolls, we had to put a ticket in, get quoted a price and then pay in coins. It took about 30 - 60 seconds to get one car through the boom gate. Also at one of the other toll booths, the toll was 1.61. Not 1.60, not 1.65 but 1.61. So the toll gate attendant had to give us back 9c change, every time, to everyone. WTF. No wonder, the queues get super long.

    Ollie out.

    First day, I arrived by train to Barcelona, I took my bags then I went to the hotel, I arranged my room then I went to sleep. Second day, I went to the Church of the Sacred Family; It is really something special, because it looks like a very big piece of art. Then I walked up to Guell Park, this has to ...
