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.

Hotel Avenida Palace does not deserve the 4 star rating. When I asked them to confirm my airline reservation, they gave me the telephone number of the airline and said I could do it myself.....This is not quality service. Also I apparently was charged for requesting a wake-up call!!!!!!!!!

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 is so conveniently located near to Gaudi sites and the tour busses of Barcelona. This was a great hotel for before and after our cruise!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Good location, breakfast was tasty. Metro right in front. Coffee machine would have been truly welcome in the room. Also have to pay to use safe deposit box which is ridiculous.

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.

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.
