"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"

"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

Central location, helpful staff, nice patio for drinks outside and fantastic rain showers!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
"Nice hotel. Good loaction"
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
Excellent hotel, particularly considering how much it cost, only issue was a bit noisy outside but the hotel cannot help this.....so could do with some double glazing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dobra restauracja ale...."
Z hotelu można dojechać pobliskim metrem do każdego punktu w Barcelonie , warunki w pokoju średnie . Dużym mankamentem są pokoje umieszczone nad restauracją i dochodzącymi z niej rozmowami aż do 2 w nocy . Bardzo smaczne śniadania .Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good but some down sides"
07/21/14 Krystlego London, United Kingdom
Me and my friend booked this hotel and stayed for 5 days in a twin room. It does look impressive and buses / metro are moments away to tour around Barcelona. Rooms are small but comfortable with air con with an awesome sunflower shower/bath. Down side- the walls are thin so you can hear people talking or the TV on from neighbouring rooms especially if people are back late. Also one of the days the water was turned off because of engerineering works but wasn't too much of a problem as we got up early and by the time we were back in the evening the water was turned on again. The room was a little dusty, the air con did make a noise sometimes and the TV only had 5 channels which the only English speaking channel was the news. Maids came to clean the room everyday and change towels around 3pm. The staff were helpful if we needed help with anything. I would say eating out in Barcelona can end up quite pricey - I suppose 'same as London' so we decide to have breakfast at the hotel on a couple of days of our stay which was lovely. You can help yourself to all meats, eggs, cereal, bread etc as much as you like for 10 euros pp. We also decide to have a meal at evening which needed pre booking at set times but unfortunately it was disappointing. We went for the set menu and it was average. We expected so much more considering the look of the restaurant and reviews we have read. We had to politely complain about the main course as it was just awful and it was replaced with an excuse and no apology. The wine was cheap though! The bar looked amazing and the bar staff was nice. It was relaxing to sit out on the side terrace apart from a homeless man sounding like he was throwing up beyond the fencing. I think it might be the guys regular spot so be aware . We checked out easily but I was a little disappointed no one asked whether we had a nice stay or anything. Bit odd I thought. All in all in was a pleasant stay but needs attention to certain areas.
"Market Hotel - Barcelona"
07/21/14 Michael P Guildford, United Kingdom
Whilst on holiday in the South of France we booked the Market Hotel for a 2 day visit to Barcelona. The hotel is located close to the Place De Cataluna, which made it an ideal base for exploring the city. The bedrooms were tastefully furnished, and the restaurant/bar served excellent food. We found the staff extremely helpful and courteous, given our small knowledge of the Spanish language. Overall, this was a delightful hotel to stay in, and very good value for a city hotel. We would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.
"Lovely boutique hotel in good location"
07/14/14 Charlie_Evans87 Birmingham
Great hotel if you still want luxury but fancy something a bit different to a standard European style hotel. Beautiful rooms, if a bit dark, very spacious and great facilities. Good location for the underground. Food in the hotel restaurant is amazing value for money, very impressed, also loved the bar and selection of drinks available. Overall had a lovely stay and would recommend. We'd definitely stay again.
"Lovely boutique hotel in Barcelona"

Myself and a friend had a two night stay at the Market hotel in Barcelona and I would recommend it to anyone. On arrival we were checked in swiftly by a really helpful, friendly lady. Our room was clean, airy and comfortable. Comfortable bed and lovely bathroom. We had breakfast a the hotel which was 10€ for a lovely buffet breakfast. We also had dinner in the restaurant and both enjoyed the food, service was good too. Very close to sant antoni metro station and one block from the airport bus which took us to the airport in 20 mins for 5€. Great stay, would stay there again.
"the most bizarre front desk service ever"
07/05/14 nvg corvallis, or
after waiting 15 mins at the front desk seeing no one I thought the hotel had gone out of business. eventually a clerk appeared, and said I had interrupted her dinner. I almost had to laugh, this was so amazingly rude. When I gave my name, she said "yes, whatever, blah blah blah." I thought I had come into her private home and bothered her! Other than that, a very interesting quirky set up, quite load street noise, small rooms, but I liked the modern decor. Also when my work associate showed up to find me a few mins later, he had the same response, and said they had a great deal of difficulty with the name of the company who paid for it, as well as my name. It is almost as if they are making a point of being unprofessional at this, as part of some kind of Barcelona urban character.
06/30/14 Pauline K Sarasota, Florida
We stayed at this hotel for three nights in May. Elena and her staff were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The breakfast was good value at 10 euros. Location is away from main attractions but we walked everywhere and metro is nearby. We were given a top floor room with a terrace which was delightful, excellent shower. Dinner and service was very good and we ate in the restaurant every evening, very relaxing after a day's sightseeing. Would love to stay at the Market Hotel next time in Barcelona. Thank you Elena for a lovely time. Pauline and Ian UK
"Trendy and great value"
06/30/14 alexandra F Sydney
We stayed here for 3 nights and were very pleased with the hotel and their staff. It is just outside the hustle and bustle of centre of Barcelona, however we caught the metro which was extremely easy and the area is residential so we felt very safe. The hotel has been very cleverly done, the restaurant and bar area are fabulous, the side terrace for a drink or quick lunch is great. Our room at the back of the hotel was quite and a good size. The bathroom was large. We really enjoyed out time and would recommend it to anyone who wants to pay a little less and get a good hotel.

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.
rooms are clean and beautiful service staff is helpful and friendly breakfast is very basic. maybe too basic. The only thing that really was totally annoying is that the walls seem to be made out of paper. you hear every breath from your neighbour but ......generally it's very beautiful and we did enjoy it
