"Good location great price"
I read a ton of reviews for this hotel and most people complained of the noise. My friends and I had no such issue but that might have been because we were not put on a side facing the main street so if noise is an issue request a room away from the street. The location of the hotel is excellent. Located right off the main tourist street la rambla and […] located in the center of all the neighborhoods this was the perfect place to be. There were four of us in total we were given a room with 4 twin beds. The room was a good size more than enough room for all of us. Every morning from 7:30-10:30 the hotel served a free breakfast. Better than most continental breakfasts they served an array of pastries, from the best mini donuts to croissants and sliced breads, there were chorizo sausages, iberic ham, scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, tortilla de patatas, two awesome espresso machines that served cafe con leche, macchiattos, espresso etc, a juice machine, cereal, and fruit. The hotel staff was amaaazing. They were so friendly and full of information. Overall we had a wonderful stay here. When I go back to barcelona I will definitely stay here again.

"Perfect location, great staff!!"
On a little street just a few doors off La Rambla, you can walk to La Boqueria market, Barri Gotic, La Catedral, Picasso Museum and many more major sights of Barcelona. Easy to catch city bus or Metro at Catalunya Plaza a 10-minute walk away. Staff were helpful with great senses of humor! We had a fabulous mother-daughter vacation, visited a castle […] vineyard on a day trip to Montserrat (a highlight), saw Gaudi's architecture all around the city, took the lift to the roof of La Catedral, saw a flamenco show, had lots of tasty tapas and wine, rode the cable car and funicular at Montjuic after a long day of walking... and so much more! We loved Barcelona... and staying at Hotel Moderno made getting around so easy!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The picures are deciving. The heater did not work it was freezing cold and no room to change us to. They had a safe but no key to lock it. The hair dryer did not work. So all the reasons for you to rate this hotel to me was a miserable stay after a long international flight. I have lost my confidence to book with you.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in barcelona"
When I read there was a room with a balcony, I was sold. The room was great. Comfortable bed, nice and hot shower. And great staff. I will recommend this hotel to everyone I know going to Barcelona. Thanks for a great stop in Barcelona.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The only good thing about the Hotel Moderno"
Location was the only good thing about the Hotel Moderno. Its facilities were terrible. Mold, lack of air conditioning and lousy breakfast. Does not worth the effort. They should consider changing the name of this hotel to something more appropriate to the facilities they have.Genuine Expedia guest review
"So disappointing! Expensive for really nothing."
The front doors were the only nice thing. Lobby was two by four and so was our room. No facilities available, location was good though. Right off Las Ramblas. Room tiny wih no frills, blank walls, window opens to shaft. Information on web totally misleading. Tiny 21 inch tv which was broken to boot. Only happy it was for one night. Front desk unaccommodating. […] Could not get early breakfast which was included in price to go as we had a early flight. Had been told would not be a problem. Definitely would not recommend this property. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was convenient to Metro station and Las Ramblas area. Within walking distance to most sights. Room was like a glorified dorm room. Although the view out of our window was of another building which appeared to be a storage shed it was very quiet. It was nice to be able to step outside and be at most sights within 5 minutes walk. Since this city […] never sleeps we were able to people watch on Las Ramblas late at night and still be back within minutes. Would stay again. Don't need too many amenities because only there for sleeping. Wished the AC was colder. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location but hotel needs updating"
Nice staff...very helpful and courteous staff. Nice location but the hotel needs updating. It looks old and worn out. Except for the location, I will not consider coming back to this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location & Service, Weird Room"
If I go back to Barcelona, I will stay at Hotel Moderna. It is in the heart of La Rambla, the staff was helpful, breakfast was very good, the rooms were clean. We booked a standard room with 2 twin beds. We were "upgraded" to a quieter room in the back with 4 twin beds. It looked like a dormitory. OK but weird. Our room was on the 4th floor then down […] 3 steps - surprise! If you are in a wheel chair, tell them you need a room on the same level as the elevator - no steps between. There are a few.

"Great location and wonderful staff!"
The staff at the hotel was wonderful....very helpful with suggestions of places to eat, things to see and do. The hotel is just about 4 doors off from Las Ramblas, so very conveniently located. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"If a great location is what you're looking for..."
Although the rooms were furnished (on the level of a dorm room), the helpfulness of the staff and the location (1 block off La Rambla, midway between the sea and Placa Catalunya) made up for the sparseness of the furnishings. Our rooms were kept very clean and the breakfast for our 5-night stay was excellent and included in the price. Our rooms faced […] the street, but with the windows closed, most of the lively night noises were eliminated. I can't say enough about the staff. On the first day, the desk clerk stopped a thief who was about to grab one of the smaller bags we had left near the hotel door. When the hotel was unable to provide the in-room wifi promised, I was compensated by a lower room rate. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to all"
Excellent service, the staff was were helpful and friendly. Breakfast buffet was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything but very expensive"
The staff were lovely and very helpful and the hotel was in a great location but my single room was so small I could even get in the door with my suitacae an I was paying a large sun per night. The room was the same size as the the bathroom. Breakfast was included but if you got there in peak time there was no where to sit because the area was quite […] small and the cleaners could clean the tables quickly enough. Just seemed very overpriced for what it was. A show box Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The images of the hotel online do not match the reality when you cross the threshold. The carpets are stained and dirty in the lobby and breakfast room area and the hallways are not very clean either. There is a bar across the street where the crowd is outside untill the wee hours of the morning and then the street girls are on the corner carring on. […] The lounge room does not have any access to lights so using the internet in the evening is impossible. The room itself had poor air conditioning and tired decor. The front desk staff works hard to make up for lack of amenities and there is a breakfast which is not bad but I don't think it makes up for the rest. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel staff. We were suppose to have one room with three beds. We ended up with 3 single rooms. Very awkward when you are traveling as a family. Tiny rooms. Hotel staff was very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Where's the modern in Moderno?"
Best thing about this hotel is its location. However, as my son said as we were leaving, where is the modern in the Moderno? The air conditioning was poor as our rooms (we had 3) never got cool. The mattresses were broken down like they were original from the 70s. This pillows were left from my dorm in the 80s. Front office staff was very helpful with […] directions and reccomndations but very slow and confused with our reservations Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Moderno Barcelona--Great hotel!"
Hotel Moderno was a great place to stay. The staff was very helpful & welcoming. The room itself was very nice & breakfast was included. I was traveling alone and it was in a very safe & convenient location & I could get to all of the sights very quickly & easily. I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Barca!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotels location, service and safety are so good. The receptionists all are very helpful and professional.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good deal off Las Rambla."
Great location, but since it was SO close to Las Rambla and our room was right off the street the noise was a bit much at night. Sound proof windows would have been great. Otherwise, the breakfast selection was nice, the staff was very nice and we really enjoyed the neighborhood. A good deal overall.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel staff was extremely accomodating, the best we saw in all of Spain. The location was fantastic, right in the heart of everything in Barcelona. Do request not to be on the 3rd floor of the hotel as there is a very loud air system that is constant and kept us awake.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Moderno - Barcelona, Spain"
Wife & I spent 1-night here in late Oct 2011 prior to a cruise. The location is terrific! Less than a half block from La Rambla. Staff was extremely helpful with luggage and everything else we needed. Three computers available for free Internet use.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Reasonable price, nice boss, clean rooms, very good breakfast buffet! The rooms are small, but as a traveler, what we need is just a bed to sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Moderno in Barcelona"
My daughters and I traveled to Barcelona and stayed at the Hotel Moderno for 5 days and couldn't have chosen a better location to stay. It is close to the Metro and taxi cabs are everywhere! It is also close to the Ramblas which is interesting and exciting. The hotel is a bit run down and not very clean at all, nevertheless the staff are very friendly. […] The breakfast is good too.

Great location. Central to all activities, buses and underground. 1/2 block off of La Rambla. Lots of architecture around. Good breakfast to start the day. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Basic hotel amenitiesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good stay in the middle of la Rambla"
The hotel was very conveniently located in the middle of the la Ramblas stretch, which made it very accessible. Upkeep was good and breakfast served was a decent spread for the price paid. Room amenities were sufficient to get you a good night´s stay. Hotel is very affordable, and being located along la Ramblas, I would consider it a steal. The staff […] were all very helpful and would give you good advice on where to go and what to do. Only gripe that I have is that you would be able to hear some noises from the street in the middle of the night, which could get irritating after a while. All in all, I would recommended the hotel.

"Great location but tiny airless room"
Room was like a box the windows opened out onto some dingy concrete wall you had nought to look out onto air con was rubbish and bath was like a small shower tray my son would not of been able to stretch out in it.room was tidied every day and it was clean but if you suffer from being in small spaces this hotel is not for you.but great for locationGenuine Expedia guest review
We read the previous reviews on this hotel and we were a little apprehensive but there was no need at all. This hotel is smack bang in the middle of La Ramblas what a fab location. Yes it was a little noisy for us as we had a room at the front of the hotel but lets face it if you want to be in the middle of everything in a busy city then that is to […] be expected! I am talking about outside noise we did not hear any noise in the hotel at all. My friends had a room to the back of the hotel and they never heard a thing but then they didn't have a view either. Rooms are a little dated but very clean and both our rooms were fairly spacious so I cant complain about that. The bathroom was a good size and the water HOT. Breakfast was ideal what you would expect for a continental and plenty to choose from. The staff were very helpful and really nice. We had no complaints at all. This place is perfect for what a city break I would come again and I would recommend, what great value for money! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is a bit basic, but adequate for our 3 nights. beds not comfy, beakfast quiet decent but coffee machine a little eccentric. we had to sleep with the air con on over night as it was warm and the noise is considerable right the way through the night. But this means you can walk to masses of places , get to the tour buses etc really easily, and enjoy […] sauntering down La Rambla.No real meeting place and no bar, though by the laptops there were a couple of sofas.

"Hotel should be called "Hotel Rustico""
The hotel is in a poor state of repair and looks and feels as though it hasn't had any maintenance since 1980. The beds which were three singles were in such poor condition I dared not roll over for fear of falling out of the bed all together and hurting myself. Breakfast was below average so much so in fact that after the first morning we didn't bother […] with the breakfast stampede after that. The bathroom is in poor condition and the shower was so bad you can't help but get water everywhere while using it. The staff are good though and do their best in what must be very trying circumstances. The few days we were there was during a local festival so the place was really 'humming' with activity inside and out the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Friendly, helpful staff. Very convenient location, right near Liceu metro station, just off La Rambla. The area can be a bit noisy at night, so try for a room at the back. Good buffet breakfast. Luggage storage room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A solid 3 star hotel"
Although quite an expensive hotel it is in a fantastic location. Rooms are a reasonable size and the breakfast was of average quality. A big problem was the wifi signal not reaching the hotel room so to access wifi we had to go to the computers downstairs or stand in the corridor of the 4th floorGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to many sites, buses, subway and cruise port"
My wife and I flew into Barcelona a few days ahead of our cruise. We were within walking distance to numerous sites including the walk-on, walk-off bus tours which we did over 2-days. Room was very clean, service was good and free breakfast, very satisfying. Include, as well, this room was air-conditioned..it was hot while we were there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Below average rooms with great service"
Concierges were excellent, breakfast very good, but rooms not so great. Matresses are thin and springy. Our air condition didn't work, but hotel went beyond the call to rectify it and did. oriente next door is much nicer for location and cost, though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Value for your bucks !"
Staff is very helpful. Breakfast buffet is really good. The restaurant attached is excellent. Must try their Cava drink and paella dinner.Genuine Expedia guest review
Friendly staff in the centre of la rumbla. Our room was front facing and very noisy from the street, but good value for moneyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic hotel with excellent staff"
The staff were always friendly, helpful and polite. The hotel was quite basic but very handy for la Rambla area tourist street. Breakfast was quite good but got very crowded with no spaces at times. The main problem we found was that the hotel could be very noisy at times and we were woken up by shouting and noisy doors every night.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great value hotel right on Las Ramblas. Hotel fairly simple, but clean and comfortable.The hotel staff were exceptional in terms of service and friendliness, plus limitless local knowledge. Nothing was too much trouble.I would stay here again for a short break.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Room and breakfast was excellent, location was great, minutes from the Gothic quarter. 50 metres to La Ramblers and easy walking to many places. Metro system is great and the station in 50 metres away from the hotel. Love BarcelonaGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very friendly and good service. Plentiful breakfast. Quiet rooms - surprising for such a central location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent stay (3 nights). Very central to the Ramblas and shopping area. Hotel staff very helpfull and the buffet breakfast, included in the price, an incredible feast! Highly recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good hotel ruined by noise"
NOISY really NOISY! I had a room facing the street and may just have well have wheeled my bed onto Las Ramblas on Friday night. I'd booked a single room which was small but very clean, tho' rather hot. A shame because the hotel location is brilliant, the staff really friendly and helpful and the breakfast reasonable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent location just off La Rambla. We walked everywhere and could get to all places including Parc Guell in an hour or less. Because of the location there was a little street noise at night which could annoy some but the convenience of the location made up for that. Got the bus from the airport to Placa Catalunya and the hotel is only a ten minute […] walk from where you are dropped off. Good breakfast in the hotel and had the menu of the day meals in the cafes between 1.30 and 3.00. Good value. Didn't need much in the evenings when the meals are more expensive. Just look for a drink and some tapas in the evening but probably avoid La Rambla and just off it in Barri Gotic if looking for value. Glacier bar in the Placa Reial was not a bad place for a drink in the late afternoon. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean but TV a bit of an OAP especially if experiencing a very wet day like we did. Being so close to Las Ramblas has it's disadvantages at 5 in the morning but other than that the location was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great central location"
friendly very helpful reception staff. Very central for metro connections and nightlife. Breakfast buffet satisfactory although could be better.Food not kept warm,ran out of cutlery and had to make do with a spoon to spread butter,Juice became diluted to almost water!
