I have choosen this hotel as a auprise for my friend but in the end was not ao good experience. Wr had sink in our bedroom! And spa package was a waste of money as spa didnt work not even one day of our stay. Even more i didn't get refund for extra payment for spa:(
The location is the only good thing about this hotel..but i would choose some cheaper option fot my next stay as this i dont consider as 4star hotel at all.

This hotel is set in a quiet residential area, just off the Ramblas. And the nearest Metro is at the bottom of the street. You are also a short walk from the Marina

The hotel itself is very stylish and modern. Immaculately clean. The beds in our room were so comfortable we had a great nights sleep. Good power shower, although found it a bit weird having the sink inside the bedroom (but not too much of an issue) you also have a small refridgerator for cold drinks.

We ate in the restaurant one night and my mum and I both enjoyed the food and drinks. It was reasonably priced too. We did not eat breakfast in the hotel. There is a lovely bakery next door, which is very cheap.

If I was to stay in Barcelona again I would definately chose this hotel and wouldn't hesitate recommending it to others

Pros: small and quite hotel * nice, clean room with very comfortable huge double bed * good location: in a safe quite residential area, a supermarket around the corner, children playground on the same street, great bakery and fruit and veg shop on the main street toward the metro * metro 5 minutes walk * easy walking distance to the touristic areas like the Ramblas * good value dinner in the hotel * good breakfast * spacious courtyard with some sun chairs and sofas,enclosed and safe for the toddler to explore

Minuses: could do with better coffee and better eggs at breakfast * the 10-15 min walk to the Ramblas is not a very picturesque one (though we enjoyed being a little away from the crowds of the touristic centre)

Overall: we were very happy with our hotel and it contributed to the great holidays we had in Barcelona. I thought it was perfect for staying with a small child but would be equally good for a couple.

Room Tip: we asked for a double bed and it was a truly great family bed, much appreciated

The hotel is in a ok location close to the Ramblas and to Columbus square (5 min walking distance) but the near surrounding was not a nice one.
Food quality at breakfast was below the standard for 4 stars hotel, there was always something missing (dishes, bread, ...).

Someone used the room as smoking one despite it was not this did not make the staying so comfortable, a pity because as a family room for 4 the size was ok and the beds were excellent.

Location is great, a stone's throw to Port Vell and WTC Barcelona and walking distance to Las Rambles (About 15 mins).

Plenty of restaurants around and taxi is available right outside the hotel (Hotel can call for a taxi if you ask them too).

Breakfast spread is limited but not too bad.

Wifi works great.

Rooms are modern and clean, however, there is no coffee-maker in the room which is a bit of a bummer. Free coffee is available on Level A between Noon to 6 pm though.

Going back here soon again for another stay on a business trip.

Note: The hotel is in middle of residential apartments so its not so nice free (especially with all the pet dogs left behind in the balcony/verandah of some of the occupants of the apartment building next to the hotel)

We were very satisfied our stay in Hotel Grums. Location was perfect, peaceful street and room. Hotel was near to center of the town and harbour, we didn't use metro at all and we needed taxi only for the airport transportation. Reception area were modern and stylish. Also our room was clean, modern and very comfortable. Good wide bed and comfy blankett and pillows. It was very nice to have a little fridge in the room, our snacks and water stayed cold. There was also complimentary water bottles in the fridge. We also like to recomend order the breakfast to the room. In spa we ordered the Happy Feet treatment, and I can recomend it too. Hotel staff was helpfull and kind. Please, visit the park and hill nearby, there was gorgious cactus garden.

Room Tip: Location near to anywhere in Barcelona, peaceful hotel

Prices are acceptable.

the stuff are not very friendly and have fun despite the holidays season.

The elevator is small and the building is old. Not our best hotel booking compared two other european hotels i visited during summer vacations.

I normally prefer a hotel directly located at the main active street or square in the city but hotel grams was slightly far from the la rambla and the route in between is dark and intimidating at night.

Not very recommended and i suggest hotel based at the la rambla itself
