"perfect for before cruise"
hotel staff was very helpful, room was clean and nice. Had a small balcony that we didn't really use but it was raining the whole time we were there. Very easy to find when using the train and metro from the airport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel near the center of activity."
Arc la Rambla seems to be recently renovated, in a comfortable modern style. I liked the design a lot. It's not fancy, but it has all the basics. Everything worked properly and was clean. The staff was was friendly and helpful at all times. One young woman at the desk arranged for us to see a flamenco performance and the next day was genuinely interested […] to hear how we liked it. The location is right on La Rambla. It was an easy walk to the Gothic area, the Placa Riale, the Placa de Catalunya, the Boqueria market, tons of restaurants and coffee shops and many other interesting spots. It was also near subway and bus stops. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel staff was really amazing. They were so nice, they booked us a Flamenco show, put us on the VIP list for nightclubs and were just all around helpful. The rooms were clean and a good size and it was pretty good location, on the Ramblas, even though it was the end of the block. There was good WIFI in the lobby, and good but slower WIFI on each […] floor. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice small hotel on La Rambla"
Clean modern hotel with friendly staff, good breakfast. Standard room a bit small, but adequate. Free wi Fi in room and lobby and lounge. A good value for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location average room"
Visiting my son who was studying abroad in Madrid flew to Barcelona for the weekend. Got in at 8:00 am and was told we could not check in till 2:00 pm but could store our things in a locker for a small fee. Room was smal but typical for the area, stark two twin beds a very small t.v. And a do able bathroom. Location was great at the end of La Rambla […] could walk to everything. If your not planning on spending a lot of time in room not bad for price.

"personnel not friendly could not care less"
We had reserved a double bed and were given 2 singles in a room with very little light. When I went to the front desk to ask for a room with a double bed the answer was take it or leave it, we have nothing else. Breakfast is 10 euros next door coffee and croissant is only 2 euros.Genuine Expedia guest review
"on las ramblas"
great locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We wanted to over look the Ramblas, so got room with a terrace. It was perfect. The checking staff bent over backwards to get us in our room early. They stored our luggage at the desk and we walked the Ramblas and had a cafe americano. Every thing was just as we liked.rGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the happenings"
Fun, convenient place to stay. Had a balcony room upgrade. Lots of partying and noise down below, but we enjoyed being near the action. Staff very helpful. Bus line across street. Market near and loads of shops and restaurants. All and all good place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I really liked this hotel. The hotel was location in the middle of everything and made walking to the main attractions very easy. The staff was great and very helpful. I will definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Right on the Rambla"
The location was great. close to buses and walking to points of interest. The room was marginal, pretty dark, small and bare. The best was the bathroom. Now knowing what to expect I would book here again simply because of locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place--we will return!"
The hotel is in an excellent location. We had a room over looking the La Ramblas. The staff provided excellent service responding positively to any of our requests.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location of the Hotel was magnificent, Althought the room was very small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Arc is right in the center of action in La Rambla. We took a $2.50 bus ride from the cruise port and were dropped off at the Columbus monument located at The end of La Rambla. It was about a 5-6 minute walk to the hotel from there. The staff was polite and the WiFi in the lobby worked great. Definitely a great spot to stay if you want to experience […] anything in Barcelona. It's about a 4-5 minute walk from the famous outdoor market. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location, quality and cleanliness"
The hotel location is excellent. The rooms are great. Very good if you plan to take a cruise departing from Barcelona and to spent more days after the cruise. Close to all must-see sights.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Centrally located to lots of activities"
The rooms were updated leaving old toilets and horrible shower facilties. Beds were on wheels on hardwood floors and continually moved while sleeping. AC was also not goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice stay right on the Ramblas"
Great location, but in a bit seedy area on the ramblas. Vibe is not dangerous though. Stayed in a superior room. Room very large and nice with balcony on the back of the hotel. Bed a bit hard. Air conditioning never did work correctly although they attempted to fix it. Thankfully weather was not too hot.Genuine Expedia guest review
we had great time.we had a room with bad smell coming from the wash room but next day we got another room.the desk personell were nice and understadable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is located right off the metro!!! So easy to find - so near many great sightseeing spots! Very clean - helpful staff who spoke English, Would recommend without a doubt. Just remember you are on La Rambla and mind yourself once you are outside.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"BACK IN TIME"
ROOM FURNITURE 1980'S MOTEL STYLE. BED UNCOMFORTABLE.ROOM NOT VERY APPEALING TO STAY IN.Genuine Expedia guest review
"You won't want to leave."
From the reviews I'd read, I was prepared for much inferior settings. It was clean, pleasant, comfortable and there was no noise in the rooms not facing the street of La Rambla, except for the noisy charwomen during waking up hours, but it might have just been the particular room which was next to the charwoman's working closet, from which you could […] hear water coming through the water-pipes. It's no Hilton, as you're not being charged Hilton bills. I would be more than excited to stay there again, despite the fact that there is a lot of commotion going on in front of the hotel almost around the clock. The place is very lively, with a lot of stuff to do, places to walk to, things to see, monuments to visit, shopping, it's in the middle of the most pleasantly busy part of Barcelona. It's also a five to ten minute splendid walk to the the most central square of Barcelona, the Plaza Catalunya (Catalonia Square), which is also a beauty and a starting and terminal point of buses, either tourist or not. First reaction I had walking to the hotel from the Catalonia square was "How lucky could a man be to pick that spot almost out of sheer luck!". Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel an in the perfect location"
I stayed in a room on the 4th floor with a balcony, although its not much of a balcony just kinda a ledge with a rail. I was kinda worried about it being loud in the room at night from the people on the street but the glass was practically sound proof. The people at the front desk all spoke excellent English and helped me find everything to get me where […] I needed to be. And it's in the perfect place because it's not too far from the train station or the beach or anywhere you would want to go is easy to get to from the hotel. Overall great stay.

My wife and I had a blast in Barcelona and we would definitely stay here on our next trip to Barcelona. The location is great, only a 7 minute walk to the beach and Las Ramblas is right outside the hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They were willing and ready to provide us with help or answer any questions we had. The room was always […] very clean and comfortable. We had a really good night sleep each and every single night. We were here for three nights! I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Barcelona! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"close to all must-see sights"
It was a great location. We had a balcony room which looked over La Rambla which has a lot of activity late into the night. It was very good location, especially since it's relatively close to the Cruise ships ports. However, the only reason i didn't give it a 5 rating is because the shower is poorly designed and leaks onto the bathroom floor. The check-in […] staff workers could be more friendly and accommodating. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Located in the middle of Prostitution District"
Hotel was clean and breakfast was good; location is "central" if you like to be surrounded by thousands of offensive tourists. During the day and until midnight there are literally thousands of tourists walking up and down Las Ramblas right under our windows; then the crowd thins and the street walkers become much more prevalent/obvious (several actually […] parked themselves pacing in front of the hotel). The hotel is located directly next store to a Seeexxxxxx Shop (this would've been good indication of the location beforehand). If that is what you'd like to be surrounded by it's great; otherwise, I'd advise staying off Las Ramblas and at the other end (away from the water) as that is where it is seediest Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

good price and with a complete service include free web.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was very clean and the rooms were very spacious. The staff was very friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean, functional rooms with no frills. We were on the 4th floor so street noise was minimal. Great location: we walked everywhere, and where we couldn't walk, we rode the city tour busses and hopped on and off. If you prefer, subway entrances are nearby. Wonderful staff at the desk, especially Daniel, who tracked down a missing suitcase.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Arc La Rambla Weekend Stay review"
We stayed at Arc La Rambla and received a room on the 3rd floor overlooking La Rambla street. The rooms are pretty simple but satisfactory for what was needed. The beds were very hard but after sleeping two nights found surprisingly nice on the backs. Maybe they know something we didn't. It does get a little loud on the street and the Catalyns party […] throughout every night so just make sure you don't have a problem sleeping through some noise. It wasn't an issue for us. The location of this hotel is incredible, convenient to everything you would need - the Metro, Food, the Waterfront, the action, the Gothic Area - wonderful. We found Barcelona to be a great weekend trip and would definitely go there again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, helpful staff. Bathroom had no shelves or place to put anything. Vending machine was broken. All else was good--comfortable bed, clean room, easy to find, many taxis and right on the Ramblas!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"In the heart of La Ramblas"
Loved our stay here...If noise in the late evening bothers you ..don't get a room with a view....Luckily we didn't mind it..very entertaining sitting on our balcony and watching the street liofe below..loved it...great service from the entire staff..no mini fridge, but staff always willing to get ice. Lots of shops, bars, restaraunts and sites near […] by. Do be aware of pick pockets and thieves..but that's true anywhere in Barcelona. Beautiful city..ride the double decker bus..great way to get a perspective on what to see and where to go. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel in Great location"
The hotel is in a good location (La Rambla) and close to Metro station (Drassanes). Our room (basic fare) is small but its ok for a short stay (3-4 nights), you have option to upgrade your room size. The restroom was comfortable but need better clean. Be careful because even though you hang the don't disturb sign at the door, they still came in our […] room so be aware. The hotel had safe in the room. The air conditioning didn't work the first night but was fixed next day and no more problem after that. Good wifi signal connection.The hotel is around lots of restaurants, shops, and super market, is a great location. The breakfast was really good, if you stay more than 3 nights, the cost is less and is good breakfast. :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is all about location. It is in the heart of Las Ramblas - walking distance to everything in the center of Barcelona. The staff was very helpful and they all spoke english. The major complaint was the bed. The mattress was rather old and uncomfortable. The staff provided us with extra blankets which we folded up and used as extra padding. […] Other than that the room was clean and comfortable, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Right in the heart of La Rambla"
Everything with our stay was absolutley wonderful except the hotel was still on "winter room temperature control" meaning we could not control individual room temps unless we opened windows which then allowed some noise and unpleasant smells to enter. Desk clerks were very pleasant and extremely helpful. Hotel was perfectly located for our stay and […] touring. Will return in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Arc La Rambla, Barcelona, Spain"
This hotel location is perfect. Right in the heart of the action, can walk to many places you want to see. The hotel was clean, the walls to one side of our room was paper thin and we had giggling girls next door so little hard to sleep until they calmed down, beds were OK, the room was not fancy but met our needs because we were not in the rooms that […] much. We stayed 3 nights before we boarded a cruise and at night we walked around and didn't have to get far from hotel to do and see things. felt safe coming in after dark. We didn't eat the breakfast, didn't seem like there was a lot of choice for the money but we didn't really find anything else we wanted to eat so just waited until later in the morning to eat. If you are from US it is just different kind of food. Again it is a great place to stay due to its location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Arc La Rambla Barcelona Spain"
Hotel is right on La Ramblas and is provides easy access to the cruise ship docks and to the hop on - hop off buses. It is a little pricey for the quality on weekends and during special events due to its location, but all in all it is very conveniently located and allows one to experience the La Ramblas venue just by walking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK for price we paid"
Great location on centre of La Rambla, for price we paid good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hatel Arc La Rambla in Barcelona"
Stayed there twice on this trip for a total of 4 nights. The first 3 nights we were in a room with a heater that did not function very well and the room was cold most of the time for 3 days. Also one of the two twin beds was really hard and had loose springs that stuck in your back so had to sleep on the sofa. The second stay was for 1 night and there […] was no way to control heat in the room as the thermostat did not work so again the room was cold all night. The location is great as it is right on Las Ramblas and it is easy to get to most of the Barcelona tourist attractions from the hotel. The Tapas restaurant accessible from the hotel lobby will not accept credit cards for charges less than 20 Euros so we only patronized it on two occasions - once for a beer and once to eat breakfast which was over $25 and not very good - bacon was very stringy and eggs tasted funny - possibly cooked in old oil. Would not eat at this restaurant again as Burger King is right across the street, McDonalds is about two block up Las Ramblas, and there are plenty of other restaurants on Las Ramblas with decent food.

"Arc La Rambla - Barcelona"
I guess I thought 3 stars would provide a much better facility than what it actually was. This hotel was so bare bones...not worth it for the money charged. The rooms were not sound proof to the outside street noisy at all. You could hear in clear detail conversations happening on the street several floors below. Made it difficult to sleep with loud […] partying going on in the streets. A bit of positive feedback, the room was clean and located it a good central location.

Hotel was convenient to sites in central Barcelona. However, I did not like the iodea of having to pay to put luggage into lockers around check out time. In addition, there was only one wastebasket in the room. It was very small. There should be at least 2 medium size wastebaskets in each room.Genuine Expedia guest review
