“Okay hotel in a good location.”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

The best thing about the Wilson was the location. An easy, attractive walk to all the attractions. We arrived at the same time as cruise ship passengers and the small lobby was crowded , confusing and overstuffed with luggage. Our room was on the third floor in the front. The windows were quite well soundproofed so noise was not a problem. The view of the Diagonal was lovely. On the down side, the shower had no towel bars and no soap dish. Also when you left the room and took your key, the power stopped. So no recharging cell phones or batteries when you're out of the room. We didn't have breakfast there. Places in the neighborhood were cheaper. There's even a Starbucks a block away. After the confusing first impression, the desk staff was courteous and helpful. While there was nothing wrong with the hotel, would probably shop around further next time in Barcelona.

Very central, i.e. on the Diagonal - a 10-minute walk from the Rambla de Catalunya: it is very easy to walk to the Passeig the Gracia, the Plaça de Catalunya, the Ramblas etc. Rooms are comfortable and have well-soundproofed windows: bathroom had an etched-glass door which meant the bathroom light illuminated the whole room when used during the night. Excellent breakfast (12€) but with so-so coffee from a machine. The staff is friendly and helpful. Computer and printer available all the time.

After a week in a corporate hotel, my partner joined me for an extra night in Barcelona and we chose this intimate little hotel in a great location. The room was just what we needed, with an extra room for us to stretch out, and a balcony where we enjoyed a drink with a view of Tibidabo.

The hotel is a little way from the metro but is easily walkable to great restaurants and bars. We chose to have breakfast in the hotel and pleased we did as the food was great.

The highlight of the stay was the staff, who couldn't do enough for you and were a credit to the place.

Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again when I'm next back in Barcelona.

Room Tip: Ask for room 508 for a nice view and balcony

I stayed at the Wilson Boutique Hotel upon recommendations from colleagues. I stayed there several times for work, and once for pleasure during the weekend. It is a really great hotel, very central and easily reachable by taxi from the airport, and easy to get from there to the city center. The staff is very friendly, and the rooms are great. Breakfast is too expensive for what it is though, so I have always taken it out and would advise you to do the same.

This hotel was beautiful, and deserves more than 3 stars! The rooms were incredibly clean, stylish, and tidied every day. The shower is massive and luxurious. There are a few clubs and restaurants nearby but not that many. We did ask for a double bed specifically but got two singles pushed together which wasn't a disaster. Air conditioning didn't work but when we asked they fixed it. The shower also went hot and cold but that was fixed too. Those sound bad but they were minute inconveniences compared to the hotel!
The staff are friendly and ready to help, they recommended a restaurant called patron nearby which was fantastic. However the recommendation for restaurants nearby the marina I would not take as it was a tourist trap (le Salamanca) and we were very disappointed.
The hotel is a slight walk from the closet metros Provençal or diagonal after a long day walking around barcelona but is pretty much a 5-10 euro taxi from most places. It didn't ruin our holiday and we would definitely stay here again. The room was romantic and perfect for our stay.

Thank you for a lovely time!

I visit Barcelona regularly and I usually stay at the Wilson Boutique Hotel.The rooms are modern and comfy with bathrooms equipped with a GOOD hairdryer and everything is spotless.The only flaw for me is the subdued lighting in the room although there's plenty of light coming through the windows during the day.Service is very good,staff is efficient and friendly.Location is fantastic since Paseo de Gracia is a 15 mts walk from the hotel and all around there are nice bars and restaurants.

Very good compromise quality-price and really great position. Not really close to the underground stations, but in a quite and secure area of the city. But, there are many bus-stations and good bar!!!

Room Tip: ask to the reception, they will find the suitable room for your needs.
