Hotel El Avenida Palace
Ranked #143 of 518 Hotels in Barcelona
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 January 2014

I stayed here for a couple of nights on a recent trip to Barcelona, and have nothing buy praise for the hotel. If you are looking for a modern, minimalist hotel - this is not it. If you are looking for ultra-luxurious - this is not it. However, if you are looking for an ideally situated hotel, with friendly staff, quite lavish public spaces, and more than adequate rooms and bathrooms, all at a very fair price, I would recommend the Hotel Avenida Palace for your consideration. I am sure I will return.

Decent old-fashioned 4 –star hotel right in center of Barcelona only a few minutes’ walk from the Aerobus (airport bus) station and also near La Ramblas. Good lobby that shows hotel had its days and while rooms are somewhat dated they are clean and comfortable, and of good size at its price. I stayed here one night pre-cruise and consider it a good choice for my purposes (and will return in similar transits).

Prime location at Barcelona city centre, shop, monuments, food, night life, underground.
4* hotel and rooms (carpet can need an update as soon as possible); excellent sleep mattress and pillows; excellent breakfast for a 4* hotel; amazing employees at the breakfast dining room - when asked by gluten free food, resolved the situation very effectively. Best value for money although the hotel has some years.

Room Tip: "Higher floors have less external A/C unit noise"

The location of the hotel was great, very close to La Rambla which takes you all the way down to sea. It's also very close to the bus stops for tourist buses, and aerobus which is a very cheap/convenient bus from Barcelona airport. It's also close to many shops and starbucks.
They offer ice water/juice in lobby which is great on hot summer days. The rooms were nice and spacious although my bed had no duvet. Small problem was that the wifi was not very good in the rooms and only lasted a period of time before you needed a new code, why bother with it expiring if i can just get a new code? Also man at desk wasn't very fluent in english when we had a problem with passport, maybe we just spoke to the wrong person. All in all good stay and would recommend :)

The room, bed and bath were all wonderful. And as many other reviewers have noted the location can't be beat. Although on a major thoroughfare, the windows kept out the street noise. But there was construction noise inside the hotel. Each day there was some major drilling (like jack hammers) inside somewhere. No explanation was offered by the management. Breakfast was fine and coffee was excellent. The coffee was served by waiters who could have made their rounds more frequently.

We spent 5 days at the Avenida Palace and had a great time. The location is central to most tourist sites and only a 5 minute walk to the Plaza Catalunya, where you can pick up the on/off buses as well as the wonderful trains system. La Rambla, the Gothic Quarter, Gaudi architecture are all within easy reach. The hotel itself could use an update but the rooms are very, very clean and the lobby is quite beautiful and made for a nice place to sit and read or people watch. WiFi is free and pretty good, breakfast was fine but there were so many little cafes in the area you can choose to eat elsewhere. The front desk staff was very helpful and gave us good leads on restaurants and directions. They can get very busy as many cruise lines use the Palace for pre and post cruise extensions. Recommended with no hesitation.
