"Excellent hotel close to Placa de Catalunya"
Four of us had three rooms for four days. The hotel staff was very helpful, providing information about how to get to what, and calling taxis, etc. The location is great, near Catalonia Square (where bus routes converge) and The Ramblas (where everyone in Barcelona walks at night). The area is full of restaurants, and within easy walking distance to […] the Bari Gotic. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, close to the action."
Hotel room was clean but not really comfortable. For about $400 dollars a night, I was expecting better beds and not two twin beds together. I was also expecting a better view and not the back of the building.Genuine Expedia guest review
When we arrived, we were given good directions to the cathedral; we took that in after getting settled. Great evening!. We had dinner in the hotel, and it was reasonable, included a good wine, and was delicious (we really must find a place that serves Crema Catalone around here). The room size was more than adequate for us, but would be cramped for […] someone in town for a week on business. The bath was modern with no problems with water supply or temperature. No complaints about the A/C. After dinner, we walked around the neighborhood. That was a perfect ending for us. The doorman got us a cab to our destination the next morning with all the expertise one would expect from a hotel in midtown Manhattan. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location,room was a little small,but nice."
Really enjoy Barcelona and the Avenida Palace Hotel. We will return and probably stay at the same Hotel, but request a larger room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Junior Suites for Honeymooners"
Right on "Gran Via de les Cortis Catalanes," Avenida Palace is a beautiful hotel for those on a honeymoon. The inside decor gives of a grand and luxurious feeling. I recommend the "Junior Suite." It's quite large with a bedroom and an office / living room. The bathroom has a double sink and a bidet...for those who use them. Avenida Palace is located […] just a quite walk north of Plaza Catalan and Las Ramblas, making it an ideal location for most tourist areas. The Gaudi house is right around the corner and you are literally just a subway and bus ride away from Park Güell. It's not in the center off all the action so it makes for a quiet place to stay. There is an a bar called Obama right next door where everyone is friendly and they place incredible live music. The only downside is....the internet, even the business class internet, is unusable. I had to work one day and it was nearly impossible. However, Starbucks in right down the block which has free 45min internet for customers. Other than that, the place is golden.

"More than I expected with exceptional service"
The room was clean and comfortable. So conveniently located in the middle of town but yet not a noisy hotel. The breakfast was excellent value. The front desk staff were so obliging and helpful. The only negative was that we found the beds to be very hard to sleep on.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very nice hotel. Close to everything."
very frendly staff. The breakfast was very good and the restaurant very clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
OK hotel for overnighters to catch the flight next day, We stayed at a much better place before coming to this place after our Cruise. They were little less friendly when we arrived early to check in. Didn't have a choice for us with timing, left the bags and wen for a 4 hour outing until we get the rooms. Only good thing about this hotel is very convenient […] location for everything Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Very good experience. Very nice hotel with good service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worst experince ever"
Hotel staff by the reception was not friendly. He was impatient and un-willing to help. The attendant was rude and asking for money, until we gave him 5 Euro and he changes his attitude completely or he simply ignored you.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were able to walk almost everywhere. The hop on - hop off bus was good for an overview. The beach was lovely. The city is quite beautiful & the foods eaten were also delightful. Most people spoke English & the maps were easy to follow.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel was close to everything"
The staff was extremely friendly, the room was clean, well maintained and quiet. I cannot say enough about how friendly the staff was. Do not expect to check in early, 3 or 4 o'clock and not before, but they will check your bags so it's not a big deal.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel, staff friendly. However beds really old and hard, rooms could do with a revamp.... 1970's styleGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to transportation."
Hotel staff was very helpful and transportation was nearby. Whatever our needs were the staff was quick to help.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location, hotel service was average, free hotel internet was horrible. All in all, a great value. The hotel is in a fantastic location for Barcelona - easy access to Metro (Passeig de Gracie station is right outside and Plaza de Catalunya station is a short walk away), surrounded by the top shopping district in Barcelona (Passeig de Gracie), and […] a short walk to La Rambla. Hotel concierge was very helpful with maps and grabbing us a taxi as we were leaving. The front desk staff wasn't always the best at service - was unable to get me a 2 pm check in, made us wait to pick up our keys while trying to up sell guests tours (you have to drop off and pick up your keys at the front desk), and was not helpful with the internet.

"Easy Access to Barcelona"
We loved this hotel's access to the city. The subway is right outside the main doors. It was easy to get to La Rambla, where we shopped and dined and watched street artists. Was very happy with our junior suite which was perfect for us. Lots of room. Air conditioner was working well because it was HOT outside! Only stayed here for one night, but compared […] to our stay at the W hotel, this was half the price and well worth it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Comfortable Hotel in Great Location"
I was really surprised how close this hotel was to all the different options for getting around Barcelona. The subway is across the street. It is a block from Placa de Catalunya, where the tourist information center is and all the buses to go anywhere. La Rambla is right there too. I stayed for 6 days and I found the hotel to be very comfortable. The […] staff was accommodating but not particularly friendly. That might be because I was a single woman traveling by myself. The breakfast was okay. I think the 12 Euro charge is probably reasonable. I also appreciated the free Wi-Fi. My room was always cleaned when I returned in the afternoon for my nap before heading out for the evening. My room was a decent size with a nice size bathroom. All in all, I was very satisfied.

four stars in europe = three stars nice lobby but the rooms are small and cramped and not that well decorated. average hotel but fabulous location i wouldn't stay a week there but two to three nights was fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very Nice & Great Local!"
Very central to all our needs. Hotel staff was very helpful. Very nice. Enjoyed it so much. Great place to stay!Genuine Expedia guest review
The location was excellent. When we arrived the check in desk was very friendly and helpful. Our room wasn't ready and they stored our luggage for us. We thought the hotel was elegant and nicely furnished. They helped me print my boarding passes for our flight the night before we checked out. I would stay here again and recommened it to a friend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right in the center of everything"
The hotel itself has seen better days, but it is kept in good shape, bath rooms are updated and AC is working great. It is one of the few hotels in Barcelona where you can get two rooms with connecting doors, which is wonderful for families. The location is almost perfect, one block from Plaza Catalunya, 100ft to the Metro station, a few minutes to […] the gothic quarter and a block from Las Ramblas. Only the beach is far to walk, but a snap to reach by metro. Gaudi's must see buildings are just a few blocks away in a great shopping area. There are plenty of outdoor restaurants and tapa bars in walking distance. I would highly recommend this hotel for families and first time Barcelona visitors. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We were new to Barcelona. The hotel location was fantastic! Walking distance to many of the sites we wanted to see. Enjoyed walking around Barcelona - using the hotel as 'home base'. Very happy with our experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Executive room = no internet - what???"
Upon check-in our executive level reservation did not include internet in the room and we would have to bring our computer down into the basement to have the hotel personnel set the sign in and password, then a $0.35/minute charge to access. This was not identified anywhere on their website nor through the booking agency. $20+ per hour for internet […] is too excessive. Later that day we needed extra toilet paper (TP) and when we advised the staff, we were informed we needed to send an email with the request. Again, excessive for a 4 star hotel which had a beautiful entry but basic service (i.e. coffee or a cup of tea was 12 euro, no outlet plug anywhere near the desk in the room for a computer, no fan in the bathroom, lighting very sparse and low wattage, key (?) to unlock the refrigerator) was entirely in appropriate. We resolved the issue with the TP by finding the maid on the floor and requested the extra supply. Never have had to do this before. I will not stay here again, sorry.

Staff not very helpful. Seem to be exhausted with tourists. Great location. Very expensive hotel for what is offered, minimal services.Genuine Expedia guest review
"OK hotel in great location"
The best feature of this hotel is its excellent location. We arrived early, but the rooms were not available until 4:00 PM. We were OK with it since this is the high season in Barcelona and there are a lots of tourists. We went out to explore beautiful Barcelona and returned later. The rooms need some remodeling. The air conditioner was not up to standards. […] It took many hours to make the room comfortable. The bathroom had a good shower with shower heads at different levels: feet, abdomen, chest, etc. and a shower seat for elderly people, but the seat had soap residue and mold all over it. It wasn't a pleasant sight. The drain cover was loose. The hair dryer didn't work either. Our friends had the room next door that had sewer smell. They didn't complain because we were there just for one night. I would have done it. I would not return to this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The perfect location."
This hotel is an older style Spanish hotel. It has old world features which are well maintained and clean, however, this also means the rooms are smaller and darker than a newer hotel. We stayed 9 nites (eight were planned and the last was owing to a cancelled flight) and we were delivered to a smaller clean room, with a window but no view. The bathroom […] was modern, clean had a full size tub and shower etc. No hand towels. The room while it had no view was quiet at night and far from any elevator. The highlight of this hotel, all else being acceptable, was the close proximity to the Barrio Gothico, Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas, Casa Milo and Batllo (by Gaudi) and around the corner to the best Tapas bar in the city--Ciudad Comdal. In addition, there is a Metro stop a few steps away. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very comfortable and well located"
Loved this hotel. We had two rooms connected (traveling with two kids). Rooms were nice and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our stay at Avenida Palace was wonderful. The lobby is gorgeous. The staff were very friendly, they even charged my iphone for me and printed our boarding passes. The room was very nice, large and very clean. The bathroom was spa like. The hotel is a great location to all the sights.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect convenience in Barcelona"
Historic hotel is located at top end of the Ramblas (just 1 block from Placa Catalunya, where the airport and tourist buses stop) in the Gracia district, so it's a short walk to many of the key cites. Hotel front and lobby have glorious turn-of-the-century decor. Rooms are much plainer, but spacious and comfortable. Hotel breakfast buffet is very expensive, […] but there's a quirky imperial Africa-themed cafe right next door where you can eat well for a fraction of the price, and many other bars and cafes in the immediate neighborhood. Free wi-fi if you bring your own devices, but if you use the hotel's there's an outrageous charge, levied even for basic tasks like flight confirmation (ran about 8 euros for 10 minutes' usage, without any printing). Nevertheless, definitely recommend this hotel for location and ambience and would happily stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Avenida Palace - Great Location, Old World Charm"
Avenida Palace is an older hotel in good condition with a very good location. We had an upgraded room, which was spacious, and gave us a great view from the 8th floor overlooking the Gothic Quarter. It's only a couple of blocks north of La Plaza Catalunya and La Rambla, and the reasonable rates, when combined with the location made the Palace a solid […] value. On the downside, the room telephone didn't work during the entire stay, even though we asked about it repeatedly. But the staff was friendly and helpful, the hotel was clean, elevators were pretty quick, and we'd stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"very good hotel in an excellent location"
Love the location - close to P. Catalunya so transportation is a breeze; hotel is just enough removed from Pl. Catalunya to be quiet. It is very easy to walk to Barri Gothic as well as the tapas spots along Ramblas. Our room was spacious - included a small sitting area , very comfortable. Desk staff knowledgable about local sights, transportation, etc., […] and very proficient in English. Breakfast was included in our rate - a good buffet, with especially nice pastries, and enough local (i.e. Spanish) selections to be interesting. Staff helpful in getting cab on departure, and very efficient in storing and retrieving luggage. We have been in Barcelona often, and have stayed in a number of hotels - this was our second stay at Avenida Palace, and we would happily return. I would rathe this a 4.5 overall - reserving 5 for truly special. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel for exploring Barcelona"
The Avenida Palace is a historic hotel that has retained its splendid lobby and other common places. It is incredibly well located, right around the corner from the chic main boulevard (the Passeig de Gracia) with lots of high end shops and good restaurants. It's within walking distance to the Rambla, the Gothic quarters, and the Gaudi-designed Casa […] Batillo. If you don't mind walking for thirty minutes, you can get to the Gaudi Cathedral on foot, passing through some very interesting areas of town. The staff is helpful, cheerful, and courteous. I would highly recommend this hotel. From it, you can explore on foot the best that Barcelona can offer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A mixed experience"
We were first assigned a room that was not acceptable - it looked directly into an office which was only a few feet away. They quickly moved us when we complained, and the new room had a nice view. However, a quick shower caused a flood because the drain was clogged. It took three calls and a visit to the front desk to receive help. The bathroom was […] not usable. After an hour, the handyman showed up and quickly made the repair. A member of the housekeeping staff was right behind with a mop. We told the front desk clerk that the problem was fixed, but that it had been a bad experience. She just shrugged and made no apology. The remainder of the visit was generally positive. The room was always clean and well-supplied. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the staff was helpful and friendly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
