Lovely old style hotel, charming and comfortable and relaxing. Central location. Food was good and room perfect. Service was very good. Near public transport and bus tours and sightseeing. We travelled by train to get there as it is down a narrow street . Ideal for city break. Parking non existent. We got to see what we wanted to see eg. Sagrada Familia and the cathedral and we also went on the cable care to Mont Juic and saw a very good view of the city.

This hotel is in a little side street just off la Rambles. I thought initially it would be noisy being in such a central area, but the only noise was from selfish guests coming in late at night, and once they had settled, it was fine. Lovely entrance to the hotel, quaint, charming. Great staff. We were only here on room only basis, but we could have had breakfast, but chose not to, preferring to go out and sample the various nearby cafes etc. We had two single rooms on separate floors, my room 2...

This hotel has a lot of pros and cons though overall I would stay here again. It has been newly remodeled and it is charming. The location is excellent. Most of the rooms are VERY small so ask for a bigger room! After we changed the day after we arrived we were much more satisfied and it was the same price for a much bigger room. I believe it was room 375. The staff is very nice. However, the rooms are stuffy, the AC is sluggish and the windows open into a shaft which was very noisy and the beds... Read more

Stayed for six nights, but only slept for three due to night noise of bin collection. Room overlooked a side alley which the bins were trundled down - very noisy. On the plus side the small room was exceptionally clean, the shower good, water hot and reception area quite beautiful. On the down side the bathroom was accessed by squeaky sliding glass doors, making using the bathroom at night a problem as the bathroom light illuminated the whole bedroom.

The hotel does not look anything like it does in the pictures. Its lobby is crammed and the grandeur soon disappears as you leave the lobby and head to the rooms and corridors. The service was terrible, and I hesitate to say this but I believe I was a victim of racism right at the front desk. As I arrived, I witnessed a Caucasian (American) couple being served, and naturally I waited for them to finish. However, the difference in the attitude of the receptionist was starkly different in both sce... Read more

This hotel is just off La Rambla and a stones throw from Placa Catalunya where the bus arrives from the airport. We went with friends and ended up with identical rooms. It was small, but adequate. The only negative was we looked out into the internal wall of the hotel and the window was opaque so there was very little light in the room. The bathroom was fine and overall we were very happy.

This hotel is well-placed. We were able to walk from here to almost everywhere - even to the Sagrada Familia and Barsaloneta. That said, its not a great hotel. The rooms are just okay. They have been updated lately but in an uneven way. The saving grace of our room was our large balcony, which overlooked the balconies of the apartments inhabited by local residents. We didn't buy the breakfast- there is a patisserie just across the street that we used instead. It is a drag not to be able to have ... Read more

The Hotel was in a side street off the main street to the port. A lovely old style Hotel with very helpful staff, good food and comfortable rooms. Architecture of Barcelona is extremely Gothic and very attractive. The Cathedral was started in the 19th Century and is still not finished and the intricacies of stonework is breath taking. Hop on Hop off buses are available and you really see the City in all its glory. Great time and will definitely go back.

The hotel is a terrific location. Cecilia was just lovely at the front desk. Helpful and patient with our many questions and always ready to assist. Beautiful older building. It was a bit noisy at times as you might expect with an older building near the action, but that was part of the charm. We just kept the bathroom fan and light on all night and it was just the right amount of "white noise". Didn't bother with breakfast which is extra because little patisseries so near.

No breakfast before 8 ( so difficult to get to a early business meeting before 9). and if it is a busy exhibition then will be a horrible 30 minutes with one change on the metro. Noisy and questionable plumbing system. Convenient to gothic area and pl. Catalonia Some helpful staff, but most not so helpful and unfriendly.

Very nice hotel at a perfect location. the room was pretty basic as well as the toilet and shower, but everything is nice and clean. the location is the real perk of this hotel, right next to the main streets.

Just spent 4 nights here as I started my Rick Steves tour. Listen up, this location is stellar. It is between two main pedestrian streets with access to major retailers, small shops, cafes and restaurants. La Boqueria and Carrefour are steps away - we ate breakfast at La Boqueria and bought our water and great take-out food including sangria to go at Carrefour - pretty decent I might say! Our room 496 was interior, very quiet, pristine clean and spacious by European standards. The bathroom was... Read more

I spent 3 nights in this hotel in early Oct and I have to say, like others have, it has a god location. Close to everything I needed during my stay. My room was on the top floor and very quiet so no trouble there.

Clean rooms, great location. A little noisy at night on the weekends outside the hotel, but overall a great experience. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We absolutely loved our experience in Barcelona.

This hotel's main selling point is the central location. It's so easy to get around on foot or by metro from here. We were on the first floor just off the stairwell and we could hear every little noise loud and clear. We could hear noise at all hours, people talking, going up and down the stairs, moving furniture around...This is probably due to the age and style of the building but bear it in mind if you're a light sleeper. The room was quite dark. Our window faced into a narrow street so natur... Read more

Great location for independent travelers --- allowing us to explore the city (Gothic Quarter and The Eixample) and experience the local atmosphere. A very nice and quite boutique hotel in a very lively district.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights at the end of October 16. Room was comfortable, on the 3rd floor overlooking Santa Ana, we had 2 balconies. There was air conditioning which cooled as well as heated and a very efficient radiator. The location is just off Las Ramblas in the Gothic quarter. Little cafes and bars close by. Walking to a lot of the attractions was possible, but also access to the metro and buses a short walk away.

Hotel Nouvel is very well located for visiting Barcelona. Close to Plaza Cataluña and within easy walking distance of the Palau de Música which is an essential visit. The hotel is traditional - comfortable - and with a adequate breakfast buffet. In a quiet street with plenty of snacky restaurants within metres of the hotel. Good staff - our room was Number 481 and excellent.

The Hotel Nouvel is conveniently situated just off the Plaza de Catalunya at the top of the Ramblas. The staff are friendly and speak English. We did not have breakfast in the hotel as there are plenty of cafes nearby. The rooms are fine and the best ones overlook the street to the front. Everything is within easy walking distance.

This hotel ticks the three boxes for a city break hotel: great location; comfortable beds; good shower. It was also nice and quiet at night. I would recommend this hotel if you are planning to be out and about most of the time. We had a standard twin room which was small but perfectly comfortable. It had one small window looking at a wall, so it was a bit gloomy but not a problem if you are only going to be sleeping there. The whole hotel actually was a bit windowless. The room had a fairly eff... Read more

Nice old building in the centre of the Gothic Quarter Very good for transport to and from airport as well as local metro and buses. Room wise- good shower, decent beds. No tea or coffee making facilities in the room, and the air condition was patchy but two windows did the trick. Stored luggage and great english speakers. We deemed breakfast to be too expensive at ?15.40 per person, per day and with lots of loal cafes could get a good breakfast for half that price.

This hotel is located near Plaça de Catalunya, the acess from airport by aerobus is easy and fast, just drop at at last station in Plaça de Catalunya and some meters you can walk into it. Very good location not to hire a car. From this hotel you can reach by foot and in a easy way the pitoresc landmarks of the city. The hotel is already a bit old but good value quality / money. Sometimes at night a little noisy, but you are in Barcelona and people want to have fun !

I have to say the location is great and the down stairs of the hotel looks good and clean but staff and management are just not interested in any problems. We paid a extra 132 euros just to upgrade our room from twin to double which came with bigger bathroom and a jacuzzi bath which I love my baths so great. The bath didn't work.. couldn't have a shower as no curtain so got all things in room Soaked. I was told nothing could be done that previous people broke it . No moving rooms either. So when...

We are currently on day 3 of our four days in this hotel. I have an extremely mixed review thus far... The Good:- check in was simple, reception staff were friendly and efficient. One of our two rooms were ready even though it was only 11am and our other room was ready a couple of hours. Our two rooms were located on the first floor in a separate two room wing which we thought was fabulous. There was a balcony in between our two rooms and there didn't appear to be any adjacent rooms.

We stayed here last week for 3 nights. Ideal base for exploring Barcelona, situated right on las ramblas. The hotel has an authentic style in keeping with the gothic quarter. Our room was small yet comfortable and clean. No tea/coffee in rooms and walls are thin. Staff were all helpful and friendly. Definitely recommend this hotel.

Nine of us from work stayed here from Friday until Sunday. We had 3x3 person rooms. The rooms all had balconies. Nice clean bathrooms. First rate shower. Comfortable beds. Breakfast was excellent. The staff were very friendly. The hotel is just off Las Ramblas so a very busy place. But the hotel is down a side street and really quite. Best of both worlds. As our company paid I am unable to score for value as I have no idea of the cost

This is a 3 star hotel. The room was big and clean, with comfortable beds. Personnel was very nice and helpful. But with only one electrical outlet in a poorly illuminated room, needs a lamp on the desk across from the beds. Only one waste basket and in the bathroom. Toilet loose from the floor and often we felt a sewer like smell. Construction or remodeling, heavy noise during the day. Heater not working, no carpets, cold floors. Hotel breakfast was expensive, compared with nearby (only a few s... Read more
