We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel this weekend - we had a quadruple room and it was very spacious, very clean and modern. The only down side was the bathroom smelt because of the drains but thats all i can say as a negative. The bedding and towels etc were all replenished each day and the staff were so helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome.

Its in a great location in the centre of Barcelona so easy walking distance to Las Rambles and lovely restaurants and bars.

Would definately stay here again :-)

I found Hotel Granvia on line from Boston. Until I arrived, I was unsure what I would find, even though the reviews were great. In truth, reviews couldn't begin to tell you how amazing this hotel is. First, it is very elegant and sparkling clean, yet equally affordable; small and family-like; easy walking distance to Las Rambles and all the highlights of Barcelona; the complimentary breakfast buffet would put expensive restaurants to shame; the choice of meats, eggs, beverages and pastries is phenomenal, there is free in-room wi-fi; and best of all, the staff is so supportive. Daniela, the night desk clerk did so much to help my frazzled self when my suitcase got lost, and the staff speaks fluent English, a rarity I have found, in Barcelona.

Room Tip: My room was facing an outside wall, but in this case, I was thankful for the quiet on this major str...

My wife and I stay at this hotel for 3 nights. Room is hot, when we asked the front office for the Aircondition's remote control. His answer is, quote : It is cold season so Aircondition not working"
Our room is on the 4th floor, and still have noise from the street. I was awake at 6:15am by the sound of the next room hair dryer. The housekeeping did not do a good job, never replenish simple and standard amenities,they let you use it until finished.
One plus point is the breakfast is good, and with no smile from the 2 Staff. They only come
And asked you what is your room number.

Room Tip: Choose upper floor (fourth floor)

I booked this hotel because of good reviews. The first room we were allocated was on the street side. It was very warm but the ac was not on. There was no remote control for it just a switch on the wall, which appeared to have two settings. Either way no air came out. Opening the window was not feasible as the traffic on this big busy thoroughfare was very loud. When asked for a different room the receptionist said that the hotel was full. However we were also told that the ac was controlled centrally and that it would be turned on for us. Half an hour later, still no air so we rang down to tell the receptionist. This time, strangely enough we were offered another room. This was away from the street and the ac was working, but again only with two settings. The bed was way too hard, so I put a pillow under my knees. During the night I was freezing cold so I found a blanket and changed the setting on the ac. The temp went up but the ac continued to make a noise like a noisy washing machine stuck on the wash cycle. Luckily I had earplugs with me! Finally I got some sleep. I therefore did not find my stay comfortable and did not like the receptionist's attitude. When he offered us the second room, he actually complained to me that he would not be able to sell the first one for the remainder of the weekend (this being a Friday night)!

Room Tip: If you are bothered by noise, ask for a room away from the street and with an air conditioner that i...

An excellent hotel, clean, friendly and a great location close to the popular Plaza de Catalunya and the Ramblas. The decor is very contemporary with large black and white period photos on a general white wall background which is a contrast with the glorious style of the hotel. The food at breakfast is of buffet style and I doubt that anyone would not find something to eat, food is replenished on a regular basis. The roof top area just outside the dining room is quiet and relaxing although the view is just of surrounding buildings, however it is still a great area to relax. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. I can honestly say that the next time I visit Barcelona I will be staying at the Granvia !!

Have just spent a long weekend at this hotel and will recommend to anyone. We arrived at 11am but the room wasn't ready but no problem. We left the bags and off we went. Returned just after 3pm and the room was all ready. Huge room with double bed and a settee in. The hotel is on a busy street but we asked for a quiet room and were placed at the back of the hotel which was very quiet.

Breakfast was included in our price and had everything that you normally find for continental breakfast even bacon and scrambled eggs one morning!! The staff are possibly the most friendly I have come across. Everyone had a smile on their face and made you feel instantly welcome.

The hotel is about 15 min walk from the harbour. The only niggle the hotel had was that in our room you could hear all the bathroom activities of surrounding rooms!! Not good when you are trying to lie in and someone in the other room is showering at 7am!!

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room away from the road
