"Excellent hotel in a VERY GOOD location!!"
We had a great experience in the Gran Ronda Hotel!! the hotel is a walking distance to LA RAMBLA, which is one of the top 10 attractions in barcelona and a very BUSY street!! also, the location was very safe!! we would go home at 1 or 2 AM and had no problem... the service there is beyond excellent!! they speak good english and were very eager to help […] us in everything we needed!! I def. suggest this hotel to anyone!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, Friendly Staff"
I came back from this hotel last week (16 May). This hotel offers fantastic value for money. The hotel was spotlessly clean, the staff could not be more helpful and they also went out of their way in accommodating my mother who has mobility problems and they made sure she had a room with a shower cubicle. The room was also quite spacious. My only comment […] on what could have been improved was the choice of TV channels, you would only watch the news in English. This was no problem for us as we did not go to Barcelona to watch TV but this is one area that could have been improved. There was plenty of choice for breakfast in the morning and the food was tasty and fresh. The hotel was also in a good location, only a few minutes walk from Las Ramlas. We were in a room overlooking the street which is quite busy day and night, however the room was surprisingly quiet and you could not hear the street noise with the patio door shut. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will use it again on my next visit to Barcelona. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Fantastic experience .will come back again if we come to barcelonaGenuine Expedia guest review
"Barcelona Short Break."
Hotel convenient for walking almost everywhere. On the lower floors noise from the metro can be felt and heard in the bedroom. Some traffic noise experienced in the front bedrooms. We asked for a room change and moved into a quiet room at the back. Breakfast hot food not good but the rest is fine. Staff speak good English and are helpful. Good hotel […] for a 4 night break.

"Good, overall balanced hotel."
Good hotel in the best location. Very very close to pretty much everything. Quite clean but facilities need improvement as the room gave the impression that was a bit uncomfortable. WiFi was slow as well. Overall good and safe option for trouble free stay!Genuine Expedia guest review
Lots of good restaurants within 5-10 mins walk of the hotel. Breakfast in the hotel is good valueGenuine Expedia guest review
"Handy to Placa Catalunya."
We have stayed three times at this hotel over the last couple of years, so are quite happy with it. However during our second stay we were in a smaller room with only a lightwell window, quite dark and depressing. On our next stay our room was at the front of the building, with french doors onto a small balcony with a view of Montjuic, lovely. Having […] a small fridge and safe is very convenient. It was also good to have papers available each day. My only quibble is that the lighting was very low, the reading lights were very hard to read by. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed for 5 nights just before Easter. Superb location, pleasant enough English speaking staff. Had a fifth floor outside room with a balcony which was perfectly adequate. The room had a good safe modern functioning bathroom but no mirror in the bedroom. A decent selection of adequate drinks were supplied with a reasonably stocked mini bar which was […] large enough to house some other items. The hotel is within easy reach of cheap food and cafés. Well placed for the aerobus stop & metro in placa universitat and a short walk to placa Catalonia. La Rambla was a ten minute walk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Rooms like a hen house"
Receptionists gave no welcome. treated us like a numberGenuine Expedia guest review
"CLOSE TO THE CITY CENTER"
The hotel was OK and about an 8 minute walk to the city centre. If you open the window it can be quite noisy as there is a bus stop opposite. Unless you are a small person, the bath is a bit short and there is nowhere to place your toiletries other than on the bathroom sink. Sadly the satellite TV channels only had one UK channel and that was BBC 24 […] hour news. There is only so much you can take of that! The air conditioning didn't work or wasn't switched on in room 204. The breakfast wasn't worth the money and you would probably get a getter breakfast in one of the local nearby establishments.. The hot breakfast items were bacon that was 50% fat and cut as thin as a cigarette paper. The scrambled egg was awful and I don't know what the other hot item was but is was rather rubbery in texture and didn't taste too good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect all round"
My first time in Barcelona a solo traveller so I was very nervous! Spent days searching online trying to decide on where to stay, but so pleased I made the right choice with staying at Urban Gran Ronda! Very elegant clean and comfortable hotel, Excellent location nice area, lots of shops nearby, helpful friendly hotel staff. Excellent clean room was […] quiet and modern, lovely bathroom, everything in my room felt super clean. If ever returning will only go back to this same hotel again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Barcelona long weekend"
Booked the hotel through Expedia, we wanted one near the centre. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We had breakfast each morning which was a buffet and good. The room was pleasant and clean. Over all we had a good break and would recommend this hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good enough location but rude counter staff"
We stayed only one night at Barcelona and this hotel was a short walk from the Universitat metro station. When we first arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by this gentleman Valeri who was friendly and very helpful. The next day, we checked out and kept our bag at the luggage storage. When we went back to retrieve it, the lady at the counter just […] threw the keys on the table and told us to get our bag ourselves. It's a pity I did not manage to get her name as she was not wearing a nametag but her rudeness left us completely astounded. This left a sour taste for our stay in Barcelona, which was otherwise very enjoyable. Won't recommend the hotel to friends. For the same price, you could easily get other hotels at similar locations with far better service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is comfortable and cosy. Room was basic but clean. I slept very well. Hotel location is perfect if you intend to see the sights. Central Barcelona is right on door step.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a lovely experience where I really enjoyed being there beside people there are helpful and kind on the top of that , the weather was really stunning. WowGenuine Expedia guest review
"Everything you need - no frills and great location"
I stayed alone in Hotel Gran Ronda for a week in January. I felt safe and secure throughout my entire stay and even though my room was next to the staff office I enjoyed my stay. It is what you would expect for a 3 star hotel - convenient, clean, great shower and did the job! I spent some time in the room as I was writing whilst I was there and it was […] fine. there was some noise spill from room to room and the majority of channels on the TV were spanish but who goers away to watch TV! Furthermore I would expect this in Spain ha! The room service was great and the room was cleaned ever day. The shower was lovely, with a constant temperature and nice flow. No problems at all. I would definitely stay again - location was excellent - very near to Plaza de la Universidad and Cataluyna - I felt very safe as a solo female! Breakfast is served from 7.30-10.30am so allows for a nice leisurely morning - true to the Spanish style! The waiter in the breakfast buffet always remembered my room number and was friendly without being in your face, Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean friendly hotel close to the Ramblas."
We stayed for a week over the Christmas period and the hotel staff were very helpful with tips on what to do and where to eat. They marked everything out on a map so we found it easy getting around by bus or underground.Genuine Expedia guest review
handy location to metro, also was near the ending hotel where my tour was ending, so simple to relocate. clean and comfortable. only a few blocks to catalunya square so good for shopping and sightseeing as well as catching the airport bus :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great city break Great transport links Central locationGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel close to La Rambla"
Very convenient location and very clean hotel - perfect for a short break. Only criticism was that I asked for a quiet room maybe at the rear but was given a front room being told that the double glazing would keep it quiet. It didn't. It was just that some nights street conversations made it difficult to sleep until everyone had gone home.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to main attractions"
Great place to stay for exploring the city, it's close to metro/bus stops. La Rambla is only about a 15 minute walk away. Clean and comfortable, perfect place to stay for a week in Barcelona.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is 5 minutes walk from las rambla. We only came to sleep at night. The room was always nice and clean. We did not have breakfast here but did have a look. The place 3 doors down is much betterGenuine Expedia guest review
Although the photo shown on expedia when we booked our room showed a room with a window outside, our room didn't have a window outside, only to the lift inside. No fault with the hotel but with expedia for showing incorrect photo. Staff were friendly and tried to help. Room was clean and well furnished. Just expedia at fault for incorrect photo and […] room description Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Well-placed hotel close to everything"
This hotel is in walking distance to all the major sites (I travelled with my 80-year-old father and he found the walks/strolls very pleasant) and the excellent subway system is about 5 minutes walk away. The rooms were very clean and secure and comfortable - as I'd expected/hoped for in a 3-star hotel. The bathroom was very clean though small and a […] bit worn. A major problem for both of us was the very poor showers: the water only dribbled out of the shower head and the temperature fluctuated in quick cycles from cold through to dangerously hot. This was a definite drawback and made showering a real trial. The breakfasts were 'continental' and, most days, there was a nice selection of breads and croissants with various cheeses, cold meats, fresh fruit, cold cereal and pastries. The breakfast is available until 10.30am but, for at least 50% of our time there, when we got to the breakfast room at 9.30am it was to find that there were few or no clean tables available, no clean crockery etc. so we could set ourselves a fresh table and, importantly, there was no-one available to sort this out for us and the rest of the guests who were in the same situation as we were. This was certainly off-putting and, if it doesn't change, I'd suggest that guests book on a room-only basis and then go out for breakfast. The Reception staff were very pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable and all spoke excellent English. On the whole, I liked the hotel and I'd possibly go back there again.

"Nice Basic Hotel in Convenient Location"
We stayed at The Gran Ronda for 3 nights. Although the hotel is situated on quite a busy road we didnt find it too noisy to sleep. It is only a 10 minute walk to Las Ramblas which we found was most convenient. The room was a decent size with a small balcony and was cleaned every day. There was a kettle and a good supply of tea and coffee but you have […] to supply your own milk. The staff were helpful. We would definitely stay here again, Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Really nice hotel perfectly located"
Welcoming staff. Allowed into room early and was allowed to move to a balcony room next day when it became available. Rooms not massive but more than big enough and very clean. Good breakfasts. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
great location, good cafe's nearby and easy walking distance to the main attractions. Next door neighbours were too noisy. Why do people staying in hotels not know how to use handles all doors bang?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay mum and teenager !"
The hotel is very clean and tidy. Beds were comfortable and sheets were crisp and were changed every day. A kettle tea and coffee were supplied. There is enough wardrobe space to store clothes. A safe is also in room which was invaluable so our valuables were secure while out all day. Staff were very helpful, reception os always manned. The hotel is […] extremely central 10 mins away from the La Rambla and a short metro ride to see Gaudi's fantastic work.we would stay again if visiting Barcelona in the future.

"Great location -- not a great hotel"
The hotel is well located and offered great promise but ultimately would not recommend it. The double room we booked was barely large enough for one person. The air conditioning was pitiful, even after we asked for a repair. The room was bearable only because we opened the windows overnight. The quality of the staff is uneven. Simple requests (towels, […] extra pillow) were acknowledged but ignored, even after repeated requests. We spent as much time as possible out of the hotel, which is remarkably easy to do in Barcelona. Not the worst hotel we have ever stayed in, but pretty close. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"The staff were very helpful and very approachable"
The hotel had great reviews from visitors and this is why we chose it, the location was perfect for getting to 'La Rambla' and so very close to the metro station making it easy to get around the city. First impression of the hotel was that it was clean and modern, the up keep could do with a bit of work but overall looked very nice. The room was a lot […] smaller than I expected but fine for two people. The staff were very helpful and very approachable, they would be the reason for us to re-visit.

"good for couples"
The hotel was clean and tidy but the bed was a little to hard .Woke up in mornings with a stiff back. Hotel was situated near top of la ramblas which was good also close to main square where you can get a bus for sight seeing .Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good basic hotel close to the centre"
We were happy with this hotel. It was easy to find, and about a 10 minute walk from the Ramblas. There were two metro stations nearby although we generally walked everywhere. We had looked at a couple of places closer to the Ramblas but went for this due to the lower price, and overall were pleased with our decision. All staff we came across were […] friendly and polite. The bed was comfortable, the shower was powerful, and the bathroom spotless every day. There was a TV, wardrobe, hairdryer and safe in the room. Our room was one of the smaller ones and didn't have an external window, which did make it a little less appealing. We were told this on check in, and advised that we could swap to another room the following day if we wanted, although we preferred to unpack and stay in one place. We'd arrived late in the day which may have been the reason. I think only a few rooms would be like ours. The walls were a little thin. We didn't take breakfast but there were several good bakeries nearby. I think we would go back here again. It was very reasonable for its price bracket. Not super luxurious and not right-in-the-middle-of-everything, but clean, tidy and walkable from most central places. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"stay somewhere else"
The positives: The hotel is in a great location and is close to most of the sites around the city. The front desk is also knowledgeable and helpful. The minuses: Even from higher floors you can hear what is happening in the lobby as well as around the hotel as the rooms are not soundproof. The hotel also caters to people in their 20s who are there […] just to party and often come home at 4a. Unless you are looking to stay up late and party in a central location, this hotel is not ideal for you. Definately not suggested for young families. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Haven for prostitutes"
Very clean room but was shoved into a room with no external window. The only window looked out into the central lift area and was very noisey at night. Other guests was allowed to shout and play loud music late at night. Every evening a large party of prostitutes would gather just outside the hotel and i was approached on several occasions with the […] offer of sex for money. One evening I got stuck in the elevator and had to rely on other tourists to help get out Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Small rooms, but clean and central"
The room we stayed in was small, but modern, central, and fine for our needs. Only complaint was that the sheets weren't changed during our four days there, even though the room was cleaned.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very good hotel"
It wopuld have been better if we had tea making facility in the room ;may be charge a few pounds more;lighting need to be improved in the rooms;breakfast needs more variety;otherwise it is a very good hotel;good location ;clean and tidy; The receptionists need to know the city much better ;good locations for shopping etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Really great value"
Great hotel for the price - room overlooked the main street, but you cannot hear the traffic as the double glazing is so good. When you sit out on the balcony in the morning (in May at least), the sun beams down on you! Great bathroom, mini bar, mattress was a bit hard but it turned out it suited me perfectly. The TV only has a couple of English-speaking […] channels, but you don't go to Barcelona for the telly do you?! Location is perfect - far enough from Las Ramblas so it's not a nuisance, but close enough to walk there in 10 minutes or so. It seems a really decent area, with supermarkets (supermercats!) all around I went with my friend, but I will be going back with my better half, and staying here!

"great staff and location"
Excellent staff in well priced hotel in good locationGenuine Expedia guest review
Booked two double rooms. Room 1 on 4th floor at back of the building, very quiet and nice to be able to leave windows open at night. Room 2 on 5th floor at the front with balcony but too noisy to sleep with door open. Beds as previously said were hard but may suit some. The room was clean, as was the bedding and towels. Couldn't connect to the wifi. […] Some rumbling from the Metro but not enough to bother us. World news channel only channel in English on TV and in one room there was no sound.This was reported but not sorted during our three night stay. Only time apart from check-in and out that we dealt with staff was to request a pillow. There was three on the bed when we arrived (four in the other room) and we do like two each, reluctantly after some discussion one was found. Had breakfast out each morning as weather was so nice and we made the most of the pavement cafes. All in all hotel suited our requirements as a place to sleep, convenient location for exploring and OK price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ronda hotel not for us"
Don't get me wrong the price reflects the hotel, you pay that price you get the hotel. In a very good location just round the corner from all you need, we would not go back to this hotel but can't wait to get back to Barcelona.Genuine Expedia guest review
