"Close to the port"
It was a great hotel to stay at in Barcelona. The staff were very helpful and friendly trying to accommodate our group- particularly Raul at the front desk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very handy location for everything on La Rambla"
I spent three nights at the Arc La Rambla and enjoyed the stay. The reception staff all spoke very good English and were pleasant and helpful. The location is great, right on La Rambla and about a ten minute or so walk from the Placa Catalunya. (Plenty of bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity but I would recommend exploring the ones on the […] side streets, as they are less of a tourist trap. I only went in the bar/restaurant attached to the hotel for a coffee/croissant breakfast but that was nice.) The room was spacious and clean and the bathroom modern and roomy.

Great value!!! Room was small but you are in Europe so no surprise. Staff very friendly. Did no care for the breakfast at the hotel and the room was too warm in February and AC did not cool. But very minor issues. The location is outstanding and close to several modes of transportation. For the most part we walked to most of the sites we wanted to visit. […] Would highly recommend!!!!!

"Would Stay There Again - Exciting Area"
First, upon reading other reviews we upgraded our room prior to arrival.We knew what to expect with the hotel setting on la Rumbla so we were not surprised by the noise and partying atmosphere. In fact we had a great time!! The hotel staff - excellent, spoke english. I did try some of my high school spanish, but their english was so much better. I would […] stay there again. Don't miss the Gaudi church architecture or museum. The Picasso Museum. All of the great church - each a museum. We had a great time in Barcelona!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
There may be other rooms in this hotel which are not as nice, but we stayed in a 2nd-floor (3rd-floor to Americans) upgraded (superior) balcony room in the center section of the hotel overlooking Las Ramblas, & couldn't have been happier! The glass door to our balcony was absolutely sound-proof, so the late-night noise never bothered us after we quit […] sipping our wine out there while watching the passersby. The location within Barcelona couldn't have been better - within walking distance of the Placa de Catalunya (where all the hop-on-hop-off buses were available), the Gothic Quarter (where we bought reasonably-priced wines & snacks at small grocery stores), and the main pier restaurants for seafood & shopping. The last 2 days, we were smart enough to add the buffet breakfast (10 euros, but reasonable for all we ate compared to places that served only a coffee & croissant for 8 euros!) Although Americans expect carpeted floors & more space, we were very happy, especially as the beds were comfortable and the bath very clean. Thank goodness we never had to use it, but the computer was a coin-operated system, so guests without smartphones or laptops (the Wi-Fi was free) could have problems there. The staff was very courteous, & it's only a short taxi ride to the pier for our cruise. So glad we went 4 days early! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very nice hotel. Convenient to the cruise port and to La Rambla. Since it is on the famous street it is nice to have a balcony.Genuine Expedia guest review
"perfect location on La Rambla"
Hotel is located at the foot of La Rambla which makes it perfect for walking. It is very close to metro, harbor. Very clean and well run small hotel. Their breakfast room was too small for the guests so we had to look elsewhere for breakfast. Not a problem, a great coffee shop was only a block away. We would not hesitate to stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location and excellent service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved location on La Rambla. Very convenient for our activities, sights and especially convenient for restaurants. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were well equipped and very clean. The room was also quiet, overlooking La Rambla. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very close to all must see sights"
It was excellent. WE HAD A GREAT TRIP.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed for one night previous to leaving on a cruise. Hotel sits right on La Rambla. It was easy to get to by taxi, and we enjoyed being able to walk right out onto the lively atmosphere of La Rambla.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beds were uncomfortable. Room was quiet. No comfortable place to sit in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"excellent location in old City"
the hotel room are small but excellent condition, and clean. The location is excellent , right on the most exciting area of Barcelona Las Ramblas.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location - at the heart of the city."
I enjoyed our stay at Arc La Rambla. At first I was a bit worried that it will be noisy as the hotel is right on La Rambla street. Our room did not have a view of La Rambla but preferred the peace and quiet. The rooms were a good size, its basic but that's ok since you will be spending most of the day out exploring Barcelona. Enjoyed the breakfast, […] wish it was included in the hotel price but still reasonable price for what you get. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel right on the La Rambla"
Had a great time due to proximity to La RAMBLA - if it' happening in Barcelona, it's on La Rambla. Nice hotel with a great staff!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Hotel on La Rambla in good location"
Clean hotel and located within easy reach of many interesting museums and transportation. Our room, was very small hanging stroage only, and staff were not very helpful in changing it. Our friends had a nicer room. However it was clean, had a good breakfast available (8Euro). For price and location would use it again (but making sure the room size was […] better).

Had a wonderful stay. As a hospitality professional I was impressed with all of the amenities provided the hotel provided. Andrea and Janka at the Front Desk were the best!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed for 2 nights. Good location on Las Ramblas. Had an inside room, very quiet. Small room but comfortable just used for sleeping. Nice restaurant next door.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right in the heart of Las Ramplas. Close to port."
Staff was always helpful. They spoke English and gave helpful information. Very patient and friendly. Rooms are very basic and small. I would suggest asking for a room with sunlight. 1st stay prior to our cruise the room's window was looking down into an enclosed pit with a skylight several floors above us. Post cruise visit we had a room overlooking […] the street. We were told it could be noisy due to the street activities going on all night but it was not a problem. Remember to pack washcloths since those are not provided, just towels. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location to everything you'd want"
This hotel was The Best! It was clean, close to the best shopping and all the sights were in walking distance. There were excellent sidewalk cafes and venders just outside the hotel. The Only downside was that the bed was as Hard As A Rock!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very pleased with our stay September 2013, we stayed 2 days before and cruise and 1 day after. The location is close to everything, rooms were good size and very clean. The staff was very friendly. Would stay again if in Barcelona.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very good experience . The hotel is very close to the beach and in the heart of the city centerGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for tourists!"
This hotel had a great location very clean and a very friendly staff. I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was concerned about the location of the hotel. It was located right off of a very busy street and I was afraid I would be kept awake by the noise. The window and wall kept the noise out. The bed was extremely hard and there were no luxuries but compared to another hotel we had stayed in the week before the la Rambla was a ups ale hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location works well"
During our stay in Spain we stayed here 3 different times. The location is great- especially if going on a cruise. Lots of action outside your room. Although we stated several times we had three different types of room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for La Rambla"
Stayed a day after a cruise. Hotel let us have one of three rooms ready at 9 am. Staff was very fluent in English. We got to see quite a few of the sights on La Rambla. The rooms were configured strangely, so the teenagers were not comfortable by themselves at night. We had a room with balcony facing the street; nice for people-watching, but not noisy […] at night.

"Good location, modern and large room, minor flaws"
Room was clean and large, bathrooms were modern and large by european standards. AC unit was a little on the fritz and would turn on and off repeatedly, not a big deal but kept it from being a five star hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful, would stay at againGenuine Expedia guest review
I love BarcelonaGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very convenient and clean"
Very convenient location, nice lounge area to wait in if meeting people, rooms were good size, a bit noisy, but it's on the La Rambla. Very nice reception employees. Our friends chose a different hotel that was more experience and rated higher. They wished they had booked the Arc La Rambla as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic & affordable hotel in an excellent location!"
Pros: -Excellent location -Very Affiordable -A/C & Safe in room -Helpful Staff -Very Clean, Nice Shower Cons: -Room Decor is very basic & dated -Room is warm when returning (power shuts off when u leave the room) -Room smelled musty at timesGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fun Area and Decent Hotel"
Being right on Las Rambla was fun and the metro is close. There are lots of restaurants close by including US fast food ones. The metro is close as is the Gothic Quarter. Our only complaint is the noise in our room that faced the back. Babies crying and people partying were annoying.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Surprising hotel so close to everything!!! Metro just feet away. Only drawback were the drunks that linger around till 7 or 8am but we felt secure because of the heavy police presence. COLD A/C which is surprising in european hotels in this catagory.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel facility is just ok. They charge money to borrow towels and bring them to he beach, which we don't like.Genuine Expedia guest review
"in the middle of verything"
very satisfactory stay at the hotel and great treatment from Hotels.com. The hotel room was clean and modern with working A/C controls, perfect location in midst of everything. Great for the price we paid. Very helpful and friendly staff. Good amenities and breakfast. Will certainly recommend and go there again. Trip to and from airport with tip, 40 […] euros each, about 1/2 hr without traffic. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Hotel was very convenient and close to shopping and resteraunts. Close to harbor and cruise port. We would absolutely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Barcelona is a embarkation/debarkation port for many mediterranean cruiselines. The hotel Arc la Rambla is only 5 minutes walk from port shuttle pick up point. At the same time, la Rambla is full of actions in itself, within walking distances to the Gothic quarter, Boqueria market, Placa Catalunya, etc. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. For […] early arrivers before check in time, they have supersized luggage storage lockers for a nominal fee (2 euros). The only complaint that I have is the sound proofing between rooms. People taking showers next door seemed right in front of your bed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fun but not restful"
Awesome location, but it is loud at night. If you are planning on restful night, stay somewhere else. However, for a fun time in Barcelona it is great. Note for families: If you stay out late, some pretty scary looking hookers, etc do make an appearance so stay close together. Having said the above, I never felt in danger and we will stay here in […] our next Barcelona trip. It was crazy, but a great time. There are lots of police around keeping an eye on things.

"Best place in Barcelona"
Hotel is situated in the very cool La Rambla neighborhood near the Gothic Quarter. Great shopping, restaurants and near everything we wanted to do. Staff was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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"

"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
