    Barcelona's best spot

    by

    We had a short but very pleasant stay last week.
    The hotel is very clean and tidy, the staff is willing and very helpful. The rooms are enough convenient. The breakfast is hearty and well prepared (especially the scrabled eggs!!!).
    The location is absolutely perfect, perfect, perfect. A few steps from Placa Catalunya, and a short walk from La Rambla. In the heart of quality shopping and main underground and bus stations.
    Is combining very good quality and perfect location.

  • Excellent location; some front desk confusion

    by

    In July 2010, there was scaffolding out front: renovations, I guess.
    Rooms pleasant enough, if a bit warm; no bed bugs during our stay. Breakfasts were delicious, with the hard rolls & sausages & great coffee.
    @The bottom of the winding staircase, our great-niece was curious about what was behind door no. 1: a tunnel leading to what may've been old streets or more tunnels; maybe a former restaurant, judging by the sign over a doorway. On a far wall was a table piled with old commodes. An unexpected archeological gem beneath a charming hotel, but I don't think it was on the standard excursion route.
    But new arrivals: don't start piling your luggage in the lobby & check the room no. they give you: they tossed us outta one room, because it'd been reserved for someone else. Tourist season, I guess.
    Recommend, but for stays not longer than 3 days.

    Directions: On Gran Via, just west of the DeGracias circle.

    very central

    by

    I had a great room facing the placa, the rooms are quite big and the bathroom also.
    Breakfast had everything and I cant forget the hot chocolate.The best thing is the central location of the hotel, very close to Gaudi buildings and close to Las Ramblas, there is also a metro station just outside of the hotel.

    Directions: near the placa Catalunya

Perfectly located!

by TripAdvisor Member lmlang

The staff at the Avenida Palace makes you feel at home right when you arrive. They immediately provide you with a map of the city and highlight the many Barcelona attractions that are within easy walking distance of the hotel. These include the Pla├ža Catalunya, La Rambla, Casa Mila, and the Gothic Quarter.
We asked for a room facing the street and were pleased to receive one on the top floor, which gave us a great view over the city. The windows are triple-paned, so no street noise comes through, and we were able to adjust the air-conditioning to suit our preferences.
As a family of 3, we received a small suite, which consisted of a large foyer, a small bedroom, a modern and well-equipped bathroom, and a small study with a desk and a sofabed for our 8-year-old.
We definitely plan to stay at the Avenida Palace on our next trip to Barcelona.

If a certain brewery did hotels...

by TripAdvisor Member AT_PAFC

They would do the Avenida Palace.

Blessed with a near perfect location (walking distance to Las Ramblas, Placa de Catalunya, Passeig de Gracia, etc.) the opulent interiors and friendly staff are the perfect haven from the cosmopolitan bustle on the streets outside.

We were offered an upgrade on arrival to a room on the 8th floor (room 811 at the end of the corridor). Not so much a room as a small apartment, complete with balcony where we would sit drinking champagne as the sun set and we prepared for our nights out in the Catalan capital.

The baby sister to the Ritz just up the road, this is one of my favourite hotels in the world.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

by TripAdvisor Member Avid_traveller

Have just returned from a trip which included a two night stay at the Avenida Palace, which we had booked based on reports from this site. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Although we had requested a high, front facing room, we got a room on floor 8, but rear facing. However, it proved to be extremely quiet and we did not spend that much time in the room to be concerned about the view. We had a huge king sized bed, which was very comfortable, a reasonable sized marble bathroom and an entrance vestibule, with space for our cases and coats.

On arrival, we discovered that there was a match within a few hours at the Camp Nou. The gentleman on reception phoned the stadium and arranged for us to obtain tickets at normal prices, despite the time. He assisted us with Metro travel, writing down the lines and stations we would need to use, and also the best value ticket to buy, which was a T10.

The hotel is in a very convenient position,situated about one block north of the Placa Catalunya, which has a Metro,tourist bus links and a Tourist Information Office, together with the largerst department store in the city.Las Ramblas is a five minute walk but we found the area around the hotel to be quiet and safe at night, with several good value tapas bars nearby.

Whilst, together with other reviewers, we found the morning desk staff at check out to be a bit abrupt, although efficient,unlike the original gentleman, we will return when we next visit Barcelona. We booked our trip directly on the hotel's web site and were charged the reduced rates as agreed.

marvelous hotel

by TripAdvisor Member DotAtlanta

we had three rooms at this hotel for only one night because we were leaving the next day on a cruise. The hotel is absolutely beautiful. the rooms were nice with great views of the city. The staff was very very helpful with information on restaurants, transportation, etc. They were friendly and very pleasant all the time. They made arrangements for a van to get all our luggage(for 7 people) to the ship. I would compare this lovely hotel with a Four Seasons hotel, only less costly. we all recommend this hotel to Barcelona visitors.

A Lovely Vacation

by A TripAdvisor Member

My husband and I arrived on a Saturday for a 5 night stay. And from the moment we arrived we were treated kindly and with a friendly smile. We enjoying the beach activities, including the fitness workouts. We were at the poolbar everyday and really enjoyed the staff. They were so nice. There were many different cultures at the resort and so we got to know people from all over the world. It was an awesome experience! We are in our mid-twenties and had a fabulous time at this resort.
The food was good at the lunch buffet, each day we had seconds! You have to make reservations for dinner and there are dresscodes at some. Just dress lightly. It gets hot.
We paid to have a massage in the gazebo on the beach. It was absolutely lovely.
I read all the reviews on this site before I went and was slightly worried. This is what I have to say to future visitors: I think that if you have a good attitude and treat others the way you wish to be treated you'll have a fabulous time. Just because you're on vacation, doesn't mean your manners are on vacation, too! I love Jamaica, mon!

Good location, perhaps not quite 4*

by TripAdvisor Member treezaSheffield

Excellent location. Very clean. Friendly staff. Perhaps not up to 4* expectations. Our room was at the back of the hotel. It was very dark and gloomy and looked out onto a large concrete inner area - very uninspiring(I did think about attaching a photo of this - but perhaps this would be unfair - from reading other reviews, it seems you should just ask for a room at the front). We asked for a double bed but got singles. There were no tea/coffee making facilities in the room but there was a minibar and safe. There was only one, relatively small, lift in operation. Breakfast was adequate but certainly not outstanding. Would visit Barcelona again but would try a different hotel.
Don't be tempted to stop for a drink on La Rambla - 15 euros for 2 beers - and La Rambla is a bit of a disappointment anyway. However, the food market at the side of La Rambla is well worth a visit . The side streets by the hotel (particularly Rambla de Catalunya) are much more pleasant and offer better value for money - 2 large beers and 2 sangrias for around 9 euros.
Re. sightseeing - a trip round the Palau de Orfeo Catalunya is a must.
(P.S. I suspect the review prior to this may be for a different hotel as there was no pool and the hotel is a long way from the beach and Jamaica!)

Any good restaurants to cater for 50 pax?

by juliewong

Hi,

I am organising a dinner function for about 40 to 50 pax at a reasonable rate (Euro 25 per person). Any suggestions? Preferably walking distance from Avenida Palace or Plaza Catalunya.

Regards

Here goes a suggestion:

www.lafitora.com

Though not a top-of-the-range option, location is nice, and they are used to handling big groups.

by juliewong

Hi, Thanks for the suggestion. Will check out with them. Is it walking distance from Plaza Catalunya or Ramblas area?
