"In the heart of Barcelona"
An older building with a small, but beautiful lobby and registration desk. The room was on the small side, with room for only a desk and chair, a low chest and a king size bed (a bonus!) Nicely appointed bathroom with granite vanity top, two sinks, French amenities, full tub and shower combo. Clean, well maintained. Buffet breakfast (extra) was very decent, within a large dining room, attentive servers, good variety of bakery items, cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, plus hot items. Scrambled eggs were fresh, potato cake, sausages and bacon (Europeans do not crisp their bacon!). The service at the desk could be spotty when they were moderately busy. No dedicated concierge, so the desk clerks had to give directions and recommendations to guests, doubling up their responsibilities. The best thing about the hotel is its proximity within walking distance to the main upscale shopping street of Barcelona, Passeig de Gracia, and the Rambla pedestrian street, a couple of blocks in one direction to Gaudi's architectural masterpieces, Casa Pedrara and Casa Battlho, and to Placa Catalunya in the other direction. A handy cab stand is at the corner. We never had to wait for a taxi.

"GREAT location"
The location of the Avenida Palace is great. We arrrived at the airport and were able to hop onto a bus and it dropped us off within a block of the hotel! It is so east to go anywhere in the city from the hotel. There is a metro station right across the street and you can easily walk to many close by sites. Going to Barcelona you need to stay here!!

Traditional hotel in the center of Barcelona, almost At the corner of Gran Via and Paseo de Gracia. Big bathroom and great selection for breakfast (12€). The room key is heavy, need to leave it on reception, could improve that. Good value for the price.

Con's: Tiny, room, only a few feet on each side of the bed to move around. Bed situated very low to the floor. Room amenities limited, not particularly well styled. Expensive, for what you get.

There was some confusion. I was told by Expedia agent that breakfast was included, but when I arrived, the front desk told me it was not. I had a double adjoining family room travelling with 4 people, therefore, breakfast was a priority when booking. Very upset about this.

"Nice hotel, could use a little improvement."
First and foremost, the Avenida Palace is ideally located in the heart of Barcelona, minutes from excellent shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. The hotel staff was very professional and pleasant to deal with. On the downside, the wireless internet service was reminiscent of the earliest days of dial-up. Moreover, while the weather outside was ideal, with temperatures hovering in the 50s (F) for most of our one week stay over the new year, the hotel room was uncomfortably warm (something we found common throughout Barcelona), and there was apparently no ability to lower the room temperature! Apparently, winter in Barcelona means there is no a/c. With all of that said, we would still recommend this hotel. And, Barcelona is a truly beautiful city with a wealth of things to see and enjoy!

"Good but not great"
The best part attribute of this hotel is the location. It's near all of the action but a couple of blocks away from getting too overcrowded/loud. The staff was not overly friendly and the bathrooms are VERY cramped. For example, I could easily rest my head on the counter while I was on the toilet (I'm 5'9") and my knees were under the counter like I was sitting at a table. The hotel is well kept but is older when compared to others in the area. For the same price or less, you can find a better hotel. Internet access was HORRIBLE (Swisscom). I even paid for more bandwidth one day and there was NO recognizable difference. If you need reliable internet access - don't stay here.

"Noisy unkept rooms"
We booked and paid for 2 rooms and a family room. We received just the 2 rooms. No one seemed to care. Hand towels were not replaced every day. Glasses were not replaced every day. We had 2 rooms facing the street. There is a subway entrance out front and there was screaming and noise all hours of the night. If you don't mind being woke up every hour, this would work for you. The hotel staff was not very helpful, overall.

"Grand Hotel, A Little Past It's Prime"
You can do better in Barcelona, but for one night this place is fine. It is smack dab in the middle of Barcelona - for a central location, you can't get any more on the stage. With that comes tourist trap. You are next door to something called "The Obama Bar and Grill", ok Americans and Brits? Meanwhile, the grand hotel lobby and the old school wood work in the rooms and doormen wearing top hats will take you back to another time. A time without Internet, because even though they say it works and it's free - good luck. We had to go find a bookstore and buy a guide book due to lack of Internet.

We couldn't have wished for a better location. Walking distance to Plaza Catalunya where there is easy access to the metro and the hop on off bus . La Rambla is right off the plaza and the entire area is lively and spectacular. There are many restaurants within easy walking distance-tapas heaven! The hotel is very, very clean. You are greeted by a beautiful lobby and friendly front desk staff. On a slightly down note-the rooms are a bit tired but absolutely adequate. The buffet breakfast is reasonable and average. Overall excellent value for the money!

"Wonderful hotel next to the waterbus route."
When we arrived in Venice at the airport, we knew exactly where to go to get a cheap water bus to the hotel. The management even sent me a map of the route and the name of the stop we had to get off at. We got off at the correct stop and walked down the street from the waterbus.....and wow there was the hotel. We had 3 bags of luggage so we were worried how far we had to walk. The manager even told us how much the waterbus would cost and the cost of other options. He also told us that since it is wet many days in venice, they had boots at no cost for us. The breakfast was included and was excellent.

The hotel is very nice, but you need to understand your room choices. We had a hard time getting served in the Roof-Top Bar this happened twice. The second time we just left and went to another Restaurant down the street. The Bellmen were by far the best help and most polite. Be sure you speak to them they will add to your experience in Athens.

"This hotel staff needs a makeover!"
We stayed 2 nights at this hotel which is in a great location near La Rambla and Placa de Catalunya. The hotel itself is gorgeous and very clean. The front desk staff, however, is cold, brusque, stiff, argumentative, and not very accommodating. Our reservation documents from Expedia showed that the room included free wifi and free breakfast. The first morning we ate a less-than-mediocre breakfast in the dining room and were presented a bill to sign. When we told the waiter our breakfast was included, he glared at us, grabbed the bill, and stormed off to the front desk to complain about us. The front desk folks unpleasantly argued with us and accused us of being liars. We went back to our room to get the Expedia documents which clearly showed the included breakfast, and they told us they would have to research it. Later they told us we didn't have to pay for the breakfast but they weren't very happy about it. There was no apology. We decided not to eat their breakfast the next morning. There was one young lady at the front desk who was pleasant and accommodating, but she wasn't on duty all the time, of course.

The hotel was in a great location. Walking distance to LaRambla and other popular shopping boulevards. Aside from one or two of the front desk people they argued with us about a complimentary breakfast when my sister had written proof and confirmation from Expedia. They finally took if off of our room but we definitely didn't appreciate the embarrassment like we were trying to get something for nothing. It was handled poorly. I would not go back.

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.

"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.
