    Nothing good to remark.

    Frankly, I got so disappointed from the very second I entered to the room. I think I made a mistake on choosing this hotel. First floor rooms are noisy due to this hotel is located right beside to a street frequented of prostitutes, and getting to the hotel by night makes it unsafe.

  • 6.2
    Good

    The location is excellent - five minutes from the Ramblas. The staff were very helpful. The room and bathroom were basic but clean. It was very good value for money.

    The area in which the hotel is situated is not particularly pleasant - there were a number of prostutites in the adjacent road (although no-one troubled us, i did not feel I could have come back late with my female travelling companion and have been safe). It was very very noisy at night, with large groups of people in the area outside the hotel.

    Fabulous

    Me and my family were very satisfied with hotel staff. They were very friendly & helpful. Rooms were clean, comfortable and great value for money. The location of the Barbara hotel is fantastic, close to La Rambla and other city center sites.

    Hotel neighborhood is a little bit noisy, but you are in the midlle of old city center.

    There were two very nice young ladies who made the front desk look good. They were professional and very helpful. The rest of the staff was hit or miss. Location was near Las Ramblas Cleaned rooms and towels each day. Safe in the room

    the window did not close in the room so when someone was smoking, it came into the bedroom (i am a person with allergies). The bathroom looked clean but smelled like urine (i always carry disinfect wipes and cleaned) I don't think they clean out the mop thus the smell The AC worked first night but did not the second. I asked the front desk staff and their remark was that is the way it is, not very responsive. I asked the next day with different staff and they were on the problem, fixing it. So staff was a hit or miss. There were two very nice young ladies who made the front desk look good. The location was near Las Ramblas (two blocks on a side street) but it was full of prostitues at all hours of the day (more at night). I have an elderly parent and young child who did not need to see this type of activity. We tried not to go out at night it seemed very seedy. They did not bother us but the atmosphere did not lend itself to being safe. For families I would not recommend this hotel. this was not a hotel. I have been traveling for business and leisure and this not a hotel. Had tv but you had to leave a 20 euro deposit to get the remote. It had wi-fi but it was not free. These hotels need to stop nickle and diming people to death. Wi-Fi is a service that is free at every hotel that I have travel except in hotels here in Europe.

    Fabulous

    My stay at hotel Barbara was excellent. As opposed to many negative reviews I fond the hotel comfortable and enjoyable. It is in the city center with 3 metro stations at walking distance. The staff was cooperative and greatest of all , they could speak English.

    Might not be very feasible for families due to the environment of streets around.

    Superb

    Hotel fine and in a nice location. Prostitues on every corner - these did not bother us and the rest of the area was nice. Rooms small but very nice. Comfy warm beds and very good shower.

    No tea and coffee in room.

    Superb

    The recepcionists speak English and French apart from Spanish and Catalan. And they are very helpful. Price we paid was a discount price and it was great. The location of the hotel is in the center and it is close to police station also there are a few polices patroling around the hotel so you do not need to worry about anything.

    The only thing i did not like is that you need to pay to watch tv in your room. But as we were there to travel and were out of the hotel most of the day, it was not a big problem.

    Very good

    the staff is so kind and helpfull, i think that some of the ladies at the reservation spoke 6 languages !

    the room was bit poor to the price. it was murky, the t.v was smaller than a laptop screen and the bad was creaking. i am writing all this because this room wasn't worth its price. just in compare, we stayd 2 nights before in another hotel, 4 metro station uptown near lesseps square, in a better room in half price...

    I don't know if I liked something at that hotel.

    I booked it for the central location and for the price, as long as we intended only to sleep there.But the location is definitely not a plus.It is situated in the worst district of Barcelona, even if it's just a few steps from their famous boulevard, La Rambla.The street in front of the hotel is full of prostitutes, pimps, etc which are staying there day and night.Beside them, during the night a lot of loud drunk tourists are passing by, cars, scouters and all this mixed together drove us crazy! Even if you change the room, you will have to deal with the noise made by other guests in the hotel.We barely could sleep while we stayed there.I would not recommend this hotel in any case!!!The worst experience we ever had!

  • 6.2
    Good

    The best is location, i.e. proximity to La Rambla, the main touristic place, and to metro

    I did not like facilities in the bathroom, they were not user-friendly. E.g., the shower, fixed at the ceiling, the bidet without taps... Though, perhaps it depends on a room

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    The localization, that was in the center of the city, really close to the monuments and the comercial center; the employed, that were fun and helpfull; the cleaning of the rooms, that were made every single day.

    Some other guest above the room were talking laud during the night and the hotel havent done a thing, because I wasnt sure about which apartment those guest were...

    Very good

    Location: Close to the Rambla Air-conditioned Great bathroom

    We took one room for 3 persons it had 3 single beds so the room is really small. But good enough to sleep in.

    Service is extremely friendly and I do not mind to stay in the redlight district and scruffy part of the old centre.

    To pay 69 Euro for a room that has got the space and charms of a prison cell is simply annoying. At 5 minute distance there is the hostal operaramblas - calle Sant Pau 20 - much cheapier, rooms much bigger with windows and daylight.

    Very good

    Location.

    The hotel is located in criminal area with a lot of prostitutes and drug dealers who irritated me a lot. Our room was on the last floor, each night albatrosses and gulls were landing on the roof with cries. Very noisy.
