Lovely hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 23, 2010

We book a room at the Tryp Apollo for a day and a half prior to a Mediterranean cruise. We selected it because it was within walking distance to La Ramblas, but not right on the street itself, so not as noisy. We arrived prior to check-in time to find that our booking reservation through Priceline didn't go through. However, it was not a problem. We are from the States and one of the front-desk employees, Jorge, not only spoke perfect English but he completely took care of us making sure we had a room to accomodate both my husband and I and our two kids. My parents were also traveling with us and Jorge secured a room for them right next to ours. Our rooms were fantastic! Very much what we are accustomed to in American hotels (and we only had "standard" rooms @ the Tryp---not upgraded.) I've stayed in European hotels in the past and didn't expect such comfortable amenities as existed in the Tryp Apolo. The hotel is located right across from a Metro station, so using that for transportation was convenient. We were very comfortable walking to sightsee in the area (the port area, which is stunning, as well as La Ramblas.)

At the tail end of our trip, after our cruise disembarked, we stayed at a different hotel closer to the sea (which was positively reviewed online, mind you) and we were sorely disappointed! Not only did we miss the amazing service Jorge and the other employees at the Tryp Apolo provided us THROUGHOUT our brief stay there, but we realized how spoiled we were by the room accomodations at the Tryp.

I would HIGHLY recommend the Tryp Apolo hotel. Admittedly, the neighboring buildings could use a clean-up, but it is in a central location to public transportation (which is quite good in Barcelona) as well as to the nightlife of La Ramblas. My family and I felt very safe there (I even walked down to La Ramblas on my own one morning, and felt completely comfortable doing so.) But, more importantly, the accomodations are stellar as is the service provided by the staff.

ok...so the tryp apolo aint going to win any major prizes in anything but.........
this hotel is in a good location for las ramblas and the beautiful port area.
the tryp is spacious and clean, the room was clean with the usual facilities such as cable, mini bar hair dryer etc. it didn't have wifi or tea/coffee facilities in the rooms, which is poor for a 4* hotel in this day and age

Unique Quality: Right outside the Metro station

The long weekend stay in the hotel was excellent - there is a mix of facilities on the block which is the Tryp Apolo. There is a wonderful restaurant and bar - was a theatre and cafe next door and of course the near by gym facility.

Unique Quality: The beds were comfortable and the food was excellent. I can recommend the wonderful veal fillets sold in the Cafe Apolo.

Directions: located immediately outside Line 3's Paral.lel Metro station.

TRYP APOLO (the one in the city)

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

I stayed here for three nights. Rooms are very nice decorated, they are spacious and have all the necessary stuff you may need, hairdryer, private bathroom, tv, phone, envelopes, paper, pen, etc.
They have a nice selection at the buffet breakfast. If you see a "TRYP" van at the airport, it won't take you to this hotel, that van takes passengers o the TRYP AEROPUERTO hotel. To get to the hotel take a taxi, a bus or the RENFR (train) to the city.

Unique Quality: It;s good located at walking distance from La Rambla, Barcelona's main hang out avenue. If you are lucky you may get a room with a view. This hotel does not offer inside the poperty fitness center but has an agreement with a nearby gym (with indoor pool). The hotel has a business center and a bar at the lobby.
