Travellers' Choice
Welcome to Vasanta, your ticket to an iconic Barcelona experience. This cheerful yellow exterior sits on an octagonal block within the visionary Eixample neighborhood grid. Each space inside features high ceilings and plenty of natural light from the tall windows. Outside, the city is ripe for exploration. Tree-lined shopping through Rambla de Catalunya. Vibrant glass and mosaic murals at Casa Batlló. Fresh seafood from Passeig de Gràcia. All these spots and more are just a short walk away. Say “bon dia” to another sunny Mediterranean stay at Vasanta. This property belongs to a collection of boutique hotels powered by Sonder. No two properties are alike, but all offer our mobile-first guest experience.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This hotel is perfect for couples wanting a clean and comfy room to explore Barcelona from - the location is perfect and only a 20 minute walk from the Sagrada and is pretty central. The consierge service on WhatsApp could not be more helpful and The lovely Gio greeted us when we arrived. Would 100% recommend and come back next time we are in Barcelona again.

Property's Favourite Review
Room was pleasant and excellent value for the cost. Easy reach of the Merto and a short 5 min walk to La Rambla for an excellent selection of restaurants and back street exploring. A nice touch were the luggage lockers in the lobby which meant on checkout day I was able to leave my bags to enjoy the last day to the full and collect again (before 7pm mind) later in the day. I would stay here again without hessitation.

As soon as I entered I noticed the lack of a reception to refer to, to communicate it is necessary to speak via the internet. "Staff" unavailable, we requested toilet paper several times but it was not given to us, the sheets are changed once a week, the blanket is joined with a duvet, even in the middle of August, mini fridge with high temperatures, of the 2 booked beds one was a sofa bed, with the bar bent and the mattress falling, suction system broken in the bathroom, window without mosquito net, air conditioning which, if turned on, hit the sleeper's face, in short, A DISASTER

Stayed here for 10 days in July 2023. We had a room with a king bed and a pull out couch for three people. We had 0 issues with entering Sonder. The app was very easy to use. However, the app was not accurate about the locker luggage storage. In the app it says it is not available at this location yet is is. The lobby that you enter in has the luggage storage and a water station for free to fill up reusable waters which is nice. We did pay for early check in and the room was not ready when we got there. This was a bummer after traveling all day. They said they would refund us the $40 early check in fee. Note there is no people working at this hotel physically. All communication is done remotely through the app. Upon first entering the room it is your standard hotel room. Nothing special but seems to be okay. Inside the room there is not a lot of storage. There is one standing shelf unit for you to hang your clothes in with a safe in it. There is also mini fridge if you request it which we did. The king size bed was comfortable enough however note that they do not change the sheets during your stay. In the app there is a button to request a cleaning but then once you click on it, it says it is unavailable for this location. The pull out sofa is very hard to pull out. Once out the metal bar that supports it can be felt every-time you sleep on it. Not comfortable at all. Now, to get to the worst part. Throughout our stay one of us kept getting bug bites and we weren't sure from what. Well on the later half of our stay we found a massive spider in the middle of the night in the pull out bed. We also found four cockroaches in the bathroom during our stay. We were on the first floor so they have easier access but it was still unacceptable. We did complain to the company via the app and they did refund us our last night. Overall I would not recommend staying here in the future. Book a hotel nearby instead.

Sonder apparently acquired Vasanta hotel, fired all the staff, and attempt to manage the hotel with part time (at best) help. They are totally unresponsive to requests. The rooms are small so it’s nice to use the common area, however there was a lighting problem they REFUSED to fix, so we were stuck in the tiny room. The shower floor is slick and thus dangerous, and they would not supply a mat. No clean glasses all week. Front door lock (code operated) was sticky. No hand towels, no fridge. Stay away!

We sincerely apologize for the poor customer service experience you encountered during your stay. We understand the frustration caused by unresponsiveness and the lack of attention to your requests. This is not reflective of the level of service we strive to provide. We apologize for the lighting issue outside of your room and the lack of a shower mat, as well as the absence of clean glasses. We do have hand towels and also a fridge under request. We take your feedback seriously and will address these concerns with our team to ensure improvements are made. Please know that guest satisfaction is our top priority, and we regret that we fell short in this instance. We appreciate your feedback and will work diligently to rectify the issues you mentioned.

excellent location , easy to go anywhere by walking. big room, nice shower, comfortable bed, easy check in with the app and the one small minor problem I had someone on the app answered and helped immediatly. As a solo traveler i would probably book another sonder in barcelona just because this one doesn't have common areas to see other people and the others have but its the only thing.

Loved every second of it, it was the first time for us to be here in this hotel. The room was very clean and the check in was online and simple to make. Every thing we needed, we just send whats app and we get response by a second. And with kind. The hotel is near the centre, every thing we do in walking 🫶🏻 there is a super market nearby. 7 minutes from the Catalunya square. Easy to manage the time. Thank you so much ❤️
