Only problem I had was the street noise. The hotel is on a semi-busy street. I had a room on the 3rd floor (4th in USA) facing the street. Room was a little small but probably average for European standards. Bathroom was good size with plenty of hot water. Lots of cafes and restaurants in the immediate area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel staff was pleasant and helpful. This was a large part of the enjoyment of my stay. Ebrima's hospitality, patience with my litany of questions, and his knowledge of the city is a big part of the reason I would return. The hotel appears to be a former apartment building that was nicely and creatively converted into a boutique restaurant and […] hotel. The room was perfect for one. If you need a lot of space, a big television, or more than a standing shower you should confirm if such a room is available ay this hotel. My room did not have this. Despite that, it was perfect for me as I did not need the television, a lot of space, or more than a good hot shower (the shower tempera ture and pressure were perfect). The hotel is perfect for those who want to stay in the city center and need to get to or from the airport without hassle or great expense. The hotel is only two blocks from the A2 bus stop that takes you to the airport in approximately 40 minutes for only 5 or 6 euros. It's very easy and inexpensive to move around by public transportation from the hotel. Use Google maps as your guide. It's also essential on foot when in the maze of smaller streets. I did not have chance to dine in the restaurant but enjoyed the service on the outside patio. Overall the hotel is a good value for the cost. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Lovely boutique hotel in the center of Barcelona!"
Lovely boutique hotel in great location close to everything. Food in the hotel restaurant was excellent. Rooms are minimalist and modern which we loved. Only criticism is that the room size was quite small and it tends to be on the dark side with not enough light. The staff were super helpful helping us with our plans, as well as transportation to the […] airport. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

"We would like to go back."
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The room was quiet and clean. We had an excellent stay. We recommend it highly. We liked the location. It was reasonably quite and removed from the real busy tourist areas, but still close enough to walk to the fun spots easily.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place, needs some updating"
We enjoyed hotel very much -- very nice overall décor but some repairs are needed. Open showers have caused damage to woodwork and the vessel sink has damaged wood vanity top. AC was great and generally a quiet place even with lots of street activity.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very good.The exception, at the front desk; one day we asked a young man a routine tourist question and he referred us to their inhouse computer.Maybe the staff was overwhelmed by many check-inns.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel and resturant, dingy neighborhood"
This is a very nice facility and staff but there far better neighborhoods in Barcelona. Homeless people sleeping in the bank ATM rooms at night is and street beggars not what you want to put up with on your walk back to the hotel after a night out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a bit difficult to find from the airport shuttle but we made it after asking several times. It was farther from the subway and hop on hop off bus than I thought from the reviews. There were several cafes near that we used. The staff were very helpful in calling cabs.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Last night in Barcelona"
Overall, the hotel was a clean, nice hotel to stay in for the price on our last night in Barcelona. However, when we did arrive around 10:00pm in the evening, there was no one at the front desk and after waiting about 20 minutes we had to go in the restaurant and have someone look for the receptionist. This was a bit frustrating. Otherwise, it was […] fine. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel - staff was very friendly and helpful. Wish it had a pool!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is away from the tourists. But it is good cause it makes you experience Barcelona like a local. There is a metro nearby to go to the sites. The room is nice, air conditioner was working, but the beds were a little stiff. Also the room we got had a separate entrance and it was in the back area of the restaurant. I had no issue with it but […] it was a little awkward when there are people having dinner in the restaurant. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent for the price"
Market Hotel is a cute place and is affordable but they need to do a bit of upgrade to the rooms. Hotel front desk staff was courteous and accommodating. The lobby is charming as is the restaurant and bar area in the back of the ground floor. We didn't eat in the restaurant but the menu appeared appetizing. The room was simple and clean. The floor however […] creaked beyond belief- no sneaking in or out of that room! At first it was cute; after 2 days it was just downright annoying. The bathroom was upgraded recently and showed well. The shower however, had terrible water pressure and the shower head was spraying everywhere except at me. The toilet room should not have had a door, if you ask me; if you're claustrophobic, you'll need to keep the WC door open and keep the bathroom door closed. WiFi was complimentary in the hotel but didn't work on the 6th floor- not sure if it was an issue throughout the hotel or just the upper floors but, again, frustrating if you are at the mercy of hotel internet connection. Overall, an ok place. The Market Hotel is decent accommodations for the price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Rooms are of various sizes and generally well kept.Genuine Expedia guest review
"most helpful staff"
the best part of this hotel is the most helpful and pleasant staff especially Ricardo and staff who spent time to tell us where to go and what else is there to see in diff Barcelona neighborhood. the hotel was clean, breakfast buffet for 10euros was worth it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Bargain Hotel In Barcelona"
We stayed at the Market Hotel and Restaurant June 26-28, 2014 and again for one night July 6, 2014. This hotel for the price is a great place to stay. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The first 3 nights we had a first floor front facing room with a balcony overlooking the street. It was perfect and actually quiet. The Hotel staff, especially the […] front desk, personnel were all very professional, helpful and friendly. The bartenders in the Bar were also great. The hotel is located very conveniently to many restaurants, the University, Catalunya, Las Ramblas, etc.. All are within reasonable and enjoyable walking distance. It is also located near enough to the cruise ship terminals to easily get there by taxi. The restaurant serves excellent food and is one of the most popular "local" restaurants in the area so reservations are usually needed. I would definitely stay here again if traveling to Barcelona in the future. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Superb room, staff, food. Will go back. Could not be more pleased with everything about the stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent and convenient hotel in Barcelona"
This was an excellent find. Two blocks from the purple line (Line 2), at a walkable distance (about 1 mile) from Las Rambles and the cathedral, and also the harbor. Very decent breakfast buffet (light on pastries, everything else amply provided) for a decent price. Comfortable room in a converted building (from apartments); very clean. The only negative […] was that the walls of my particular room very paper thin, and comings and goings from the other rooms nearby were loud. Really excellent food in the restaurant of the hotel at a reasonable price. In any case, I would book this hotel again if I were to return to Barcelona. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location but a little small"
The location was great - in an upcoming, "trendy" neighborhood (according to one of our tour guides) within walking distance to everything, but not too close to everything that it was loud, crowded, or overly touristy. The room was a little smaller than we anticipated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel had nice restaurant downstairs, but beds weren't very comfortable. Minimally padded (definitely no pillowtop mattress).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very comfortable, but lacking some amenities"
Stayed for over a week. Hotel has perfect location. Great design and very comfortable. Staff very helpful, but some extras would have been nice - minibar, room service and ability to play music in room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved the hotel and location"
Beautiful and trendy hotel; great rooms; good breakfast; convenient for site-seeingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel in a good location."
We stayed one night. The room was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately it missed a radio-clock and hand soap. The windows were looking out on a busy and loud street that interfered with our night sleep on a Friday night. In general it is a nice hotel in a good location for the cost.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our Market Stay"
The Market Hotel is easy walking distance from Aerobus drop off from airport, a couple of blocks away from the metro and easy walk to the markets and shopping. I dropped and broke my camera in Las Ramblas one evening and there were 3 camera shops on the way back to the hotel to purchase a new one from. My friend and I traveled from one end of Barcelona […] to the other each day we were there and even though the breakfast was approx. 10 euros it included everything and more. It was an incredible start to our very, very busy days. The staff was unbelievably helpful from providing us with directions to sites, to bus locations and even giving assistance with Internet service (computer access was free) when I had some problems with language reversals. The Market has an elevator to accommodate luggage so the wheels on our luggage were spared abuse here too. Our room was great. The beds were clean and comfortable and the showers were good. There was some door noise from other rooms but when in Spain.... Overall, our stay at the Market Hotel was a great one and I would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic NYE break"
Lovely boutique hotel with fantastic customer service. Hotel is set in a residential area but was well located to 3 metro stops: Saint antoni, Poole sec and urgell. Well located for the aero bus (only 2 streets away). Would recommend the hotel for couples who want stylish hotel on a budget. If this was located closer to the ramblas I would expect it […] to cost a lot more. Definitely try the hotel bar and restaurant- great cocktails and food at reasonable prices. The lady on reception was incredibly helpful and lovely to talk to. Room was made up daily and there was fresh towels and a free safe- only issue was the lack of mirrors, with only one in the entire room which was in the bathroom and made getting ready a pain. Would definitely stay again though and highly recommend! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location in Barcelona"
Our stay at the Market hotel was enjoyable. The location was great as it offers easy access to public transport including the airport bus and metro. It was also within easy walking distance of wonderful tapas bars and nightlife. The room was clean and cozy with a great shower, but the bed and pillows were a bit on the hard side. Overall the Market is […] a great value for the money and we would recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just a hotel"
The hotel is noisy. The breakfast is not particularly reach – eggs and beckon every morning, too boring if you have to eat this for a week. The rooms are clean, yet I think the cleaning ladies are not particularly accurate with customers’ belongings.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic location at a great price"
Great time! Really comfortable giant bed in the suite we had, great for young families. Acoustic separation between rooms was a problem though! The restaurant was good although the food was mediocre - (if you're a foodie). Really friendly and helpful staff, they even arranged babysitting for usGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel a short walk away from the Ramblas"
Beautiful hotel located a convenient 15 min walk away from the Ramblas. Found the staff generally unfriendly but they knew enough English for our interactions to be otherwise easy if slow. This hotel is also about 5 mins from an easily accessible metro. I felt safe in the neighbourhood at night. Best of all the restaurant at the hotel was excellent […] and very reasonably priced compared to some. They could certainly improve their customer service- a smile or acknowledgement would go along way, but in general I enjoyed this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Metro"
Having a restaurant as part of the hotel was great - the food was very good and reasonably priced. All hotel staff were very friendly, helpful, and nice but I got the impression that the cleaning staff for the room were short staffed because a couple of days before my departure, the rom cleaning had deteriorated ie: dirty glass left in the bathroom […] from the day before,bedside table and telephone on it, covered in a film of dust otherwise everything else was properly tended to. The hotel was closes to the Metro and an easy walk to La Ramblas. All in all though, I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place for a short break"
The hotel is very modern and in a great location, staff are friendly & helpful. The room was nice but nothing more, only three coat hangers in a very small wardrobe & no draws for storage, very modern but not very practical, the wood around the bed creating a modern four poster look was very dusty. Aside to this I would stay here again as the bar/restaurant […] area was really nice and the location is perfect being away from the tourist area but only a 15 minute walk to everywhere Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We stayed 2 nights.The hotel was great value , a little funky (in a good way) and just a couple of stops on the metro to the heart of the city. We used T10 tickets which were effortless! I'd recommend this hotel! Its perfect and didn't cost the earth.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good location, clean and spacious"
Our group (6 rooms) stayed at this hotel 4 nights. The hotel is conveniently located slightly away from the city center. It is about 15 minutes walking distance away from downtown. Most of our rooms (double room) are spacious and clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant offers good food with very reasonable prices, but insufficient waiter/waitress […] to serve better. Our rooms are very quiet, air-cond working well. Only complaint is that the walls are thin - you can hear sounds. Also shower has no curtains, water spill onto the floor after taking a shower. No fridge, no kettle. These are minor stuff. Overall stay was good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Well located and affordable. Very friendly and helpful staff. Only hitch was my room was not ready when I arrived at 5pm but was ready 5 minutes after.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was really nice, like a boutique! The room and ensuite were beautiful, really classy! Hotel was located a ten minute walk from La Rambla and a two minute walk from the metro. Only problem was we didn't have a little fridge in our room to store some water but that was only a minor setback! All in all, great stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good but not great"
Our stay here was just ok. The room we booked was for a king bed, but we only got a queen bed in a small rather cramped room (same price). On the plus side the room was very clean and well maintained. The restaurant in the hotel is well rated so we tried it and were not disappointed. The location of the hotel is in a residential area so it is a bit […] of a walk to any sites, this was not an issue for us, but might be for others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very, very impressed - slightly off the beaten track, but 20 minute work to Ramblas, if you were so inclined. All staff very helpful, but special mention to the bar manager, who gave such great, positive service, we could not help but be put in a good mood for the evenings ahead. Excellent value as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, great bar service"
My friend and I stayed at the Market for 8 days. Using the metro close by, we were easily able to access all of the museums and sites Barcelona had to offer. Friendly and helpful staff particularly in Bar Rosso. Thanks for an enjoyable stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just book this hotel!"
Excellent hotel. Perfect location. Lovely staff. Amazing cocktails. Ideal room. We stayed 6 nights room only. Big room at rear on fifth floor. Large double, TV, air con and big walk in shower and bathroom. Bar and reception staff excellent and cocktails fabulous. We didn't eat but I will say the restaurant was very full every might and not just hotel […] guests. Obviously very popular. It does have wooden floors but apart from the odd creak, we had no other noise. Location excellent. In more residential than tourist so get a more Barcelona experience. We felt it an extremely safe and friendly neighbourhood. Some great places to eat and drink nearby without being overpriced. About a 15 minute walk to Ramblas. About a 2 minute walk to a metro. And about 15 minute walk also to the bottom of Monjuic and the fountain. I will 100% return to this hotel. We honestly had no faults with anything. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed at this hotel for six nights in June 2014, along with three friends. We were visiting Barcelona for a holiday, for a variety of purposes- sightseeing, outdoor activities, nights out. We chose Market on the basis of numerous positive reviews, and good value for money given the hotel's location and facilities/ quality. We weren't disappointed- […] overall, this is a comfortable and stylish hotel, more than adequate for our needs, and the breakfast buffet (a fairly reasonable additional 10 euros) was particularly enjoyable. Staff were efficient and friendly. The hotel was well located for getting around, being a couple of block (2-3 minutes walk) from Sant Antoni metro station. From here, getting to other parrts of the city was no problem at all. Also we found the N0 Nightbus from the bars/ nightclubs at the Olympic Port reasonably convenient for an affordable trip home after the metro had stopped running, although if you're coming back REALLY late, the front doors do get closed at some point perhaps after 3am, this did cause a problem on one evening. But this was the only negative point of our otherwise very enjoyable stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel in quiet area not far from Ramblas"
Got a good deal online. Room was perhaps a little small, but nice furniture and well decorated. Everything was very clean. The walk in fully tiled shower was especially great. Breakfast buffet was decent (10 euro), fixed menu lunch also (15euro). We didn't have dinner there but I'm sure it'd be good. We really liked the location: there was a metro round […] the corner and you could walk to the ramblas in 20min, but the actual area wasn't too loud at night. Only problem was on the first night there was a leak in our bathroom ceiling. The hotel was fully booked so we couldn't change room, but they gave us a free breakfast to make up. It was fixed the next day so not a huge deal. Staff all nice and friendly throughout. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A very friendly place to stay"
We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were comfortable, but the décor wasn't totally to my taste, but that is just a personal observation. We ate in the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner. The food was excellent and was also very […] reasonably priced. We stayed 3 nights at the start of our vacation and after visiting other countries in Europe we returned to Market for our final night before flying back to Canada.

"A STUNNING LITTLE BOUTIQUE STYLE HOTEL - V. CLASSY"
The hotel, wow................ just beautiful. The location, perfect, not too far from all the metro stations, fabulous selection of bars and restaurants etc in the vicinity. The staff were fantastic. Incredibly friendly, helpful, warm, and couldnt do enough for us. The restaurant and bar, wow, just wow. Gorgeous. Whoever designed the decor in this […] hotel needs a an award. Its just beautiful. Really traditional with a modern twist, a bit moroccan feeling, but just oh so so so vintage, yet modern. A complete contradiction but it absolutely works. We dined twice in the restaurant over our stay and the food was some of the best I have ever had in a hotel restaurant. Service impeccable, staff wonderful, courteous, kind, and it just has such a vibrant buzz about the place. We also had breakfast there and for 10 euros the breakfast is fantastic. Everything from full english,, bacon, eggs, sausages, etc, to cereals and milk and fruit and the more continental fruits and yoghurts and breads. Very large choice, all cooked wonderfully and a really ambient dining room to eat in. Rooms were stylish, large, and very very clean indeed. Free bottled water in the room every day. I will definitely be staying there again. It was amazing, and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending it to anyone and everyone. It was just marvellous. Wonderful memories made here. Cant wait to go back. I just love love love it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great hotel. So good in fact that we have just booked it againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our stay was OK. The bed was very comfy and the bathroom clean, which are always the most important things for me. The room was pretty small, however, and didn't really match what we had thought we were getting when we booked. The aircon was also really noisy. However, it was a good location - ten min walk from La Rambla and so lots of good restaurants. […] Overall it was a nice stay, but nothing exceptional. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We had a very comfortable stay at the Market Hotel. Our room was large, clean and well equipped.
