            We were visiting our grand-daughter who lives in Barcelona and found the hotel was ideally situated, being close to her flat, and it was within easy access to all that we needed in the way of transport.

            THE location was excellent, it was modern clean and provided all that we needed.

            On the final morning we were awoken at 8 am by loud building work outside our room, theis was accompanied by biulders shouting. we had been to the football match the night before and had planned to sleep before our flight yet this was impossible. This was commented upon by someone else on Trip Advisor reviews so it seems it was not a one off.

          • Older travelers

            Comfortable, clean room; walking distance to many locations of interest.

            Staff could be more helpful. When we initially arrived that could not find our reservation (despite me confirming it previously in the week). On one evening, we needed another towel and called the front desk at 9 pm and were told we could not get another towel until the next day.

            The location was the only positive thing I can say about this hotel.

            The hotel was overpriced for the service and quality of the room. I stayed in 6 hotels while visiting Spain, and this by far was the worst value. The hotel offered no wifi and you had to pay to use the lobby computer. All the other hotels offered it free of charge and you had it in your room. I stayed at a hotel on Ramblas that was forty dollars cheaper and it offered free wifi in the room. It was fairly clean. The bathroom was super tiny even for European standards. If you are a female that puts on makeup I would definitely stay away as the bathroom has no place to lay your makeup out other than the sink and the lighting is horrible. I was unable to get even bbc on the television even though bbc was available everywhere else.

            Location is great, rooms are small and expensive. Walls are thin so you could hear anybody waling by or what others are saying. The courtyard is lovely but it echos. We had to have the windows open for air circulation but were woken up at 6am by the noise outside.

            Thin walls, unfriendly staff, bad breakfast, noisy courtyard.

            I liked the Hotel location, being in the gothic section of the old city. Lots of small stores, courtyards, eating places, bars. Close to Las Rambles, about 5 minute walk. Very close to the Barcelona Cathedral and there is a food market about 5 blocks away. Very vibrant part of the city. Noisy at night time so it was difficult to sleep. The room at the Hotel Rialto was small but very clean. For the price it was reasonable. Very close to the Placa Catalunya (square) where you can get hop on hop off buses and other transportation to go around the city.

            The location makes it inevitable that it will be noisy at night.

            The location of this hotel is great and we had no problems with anyone there. A bit hard to find the rooms when the lifts were slow but overall I will be back. This already is my second time to stay there.

            Great location.

            Overpriced. We had an interior room with no views. Several other hotels in the area have rooms with terraces that are less expensive.

            • Average rating
          • Older travelers

            The hotel is well located to access the many tourist sites and shopping precinct. The rooms were adequate in size and spotlessly clean. Staff were helpful although breakfast staff a little abrupt ( but it was very busy)

            Where give a front room facing the street. - street noise unbearable so was shifted to a court side room - much better however an ever present sewerage smell came from the bathroom - had to keep the bathroom door shut and exhaust fan on at all times in the room.

            The location of this hotel was just right, very close to Las Ramblas but away from the noise. We asked for a quiet room if possible and were given one at the back which was clean and comfortable, all you really need for a city break as who spends all their time in their room? We didn't use any of the other facilities so can't really comment.

            We didn't have breakfast included in the room rate which seems to be common for hotels abroad. The charge for breakfast was about 15 euros each which seemed expensive so we just took our travel kettle with us, had a cup of tea and a biscuit and ate later! It did mean that we were up and out of the hotel earlier and saw a lot of the sites before the crowds arrived so that worked in our favour. We could have perhaps done with a fridge in the room as the weather was really warm.

            The lack of efficency of the staff, as we complained concerning: 1-the phone in the room did'n't work 2-TV awaked us without requesting so!!! 3-my family phoned from abroad and left a message to the staff who did not report to us. 4-one of the beds was noisy

          • Older travelers

            because of location.

            they did not have any body to take my laggauge up to the room and take them down to the lobby. As well as charging the the room five days before arriving to hotel (whithout double charging) which caused me some disturbance. Biddet was shown on pictured of toilets but in actual facts it was removed and towels were clean but were very old and i think it is time for them to be changed.

            It was close to main tourist sites such as las ramblas, the beach, barri gothic

            Lobby smelled like a public washroom, hotel is dated, felt dirty, feels like a hostel and not a three star hotel. The hotel also did not have internet and you had to pay 2 euros/day to use the safe.
