“Terrible hotel, VERY MISLEADING RATING; DO NOT STAY THERE”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We stayed at the Hotel MIllenni from May 10 to May 14, 2014. It was a TERRIBLE, NIGHTMARISH experience. The TV in our room appeared smaller than my 14" laptop screen. It did not work for the first night, and when repaired after the second night ONLY PLAYED ONE CHANNEL. Yes, this is supposed to be a 4* hotel. On two consecutive days, there was no hotwater for my shower at 6:30am in the morning. The Night desk clerk said that he would put the water on shortly and the hot water came on at around 7:10am. There were NO HAND TISSUES AT ALL, and I asked the front desk manager, Xavi, who said they would provide a box of tissues. NONE WAS PROVIDED. The hotel's rating is highly misleading at 4*, it should be only a 1* in my opinion. The wi-fi was VERY VERY SLOW, and the business centre downstairs had a VERY OLD PC that was equally slow, a lot of time wasted to receive an e-mail. We were VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED with that hotel that was booked with Expedia and fully paid for. The hotel staff DID NOT SEEM to care as the room had already been paid for. I will never STAY THERE AGAIN and will NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO ANY OF MY FRIENDS. The mattress was soft and the room was small. We had to ask for soap and clean towels otherwise the same dirty towels were left in the morning.

Room Tip: Just DO NOT CHOOSE THIS HOTEL. There are other 2 and 3* hotels that provide better service in Barcel...

Booked the hotel online as part of a flight & hotel deal and got a really fantastic price for our four night/five day visit. The room was not large but adequate for two. The bed was big enough and comfortable. Didn't use the wall mounted TV. Bathroom was lovely and gave the place a four star feel. The shower was hot and powerful although the bath was not adult sized! The room was clean and serviced daily. Found the staff to be helpful and friendly at all times. Didn't have breakfast as part of the package and thought that at 15 Euros each it was rather expensive so much cheaper to eat out at a side-street cafe. The room had a small fridge so items from the local supermarket could be stored therein. At the time of year we went the air conditioning wasn't needed but nor was the heating system!
The location was good for local transport, shops and access to the port area and main streets. There is a warning about pickpockets in action when leaving the hotel but this seems endemic to Barcelona generally, not just this hotel. Common sense needs applying to flashing phones and cameras etc about in the streets of most large cities. We had no problems during our stay.
For the price paid it was real value for money and I would certainly go back there again when visiting Barcelona. We loved our stay and the hotel.

Room Tip: The room was on the fifth floor and facing the main road but we did not find noise a problem at all.

The hotel is listed as 4 star but a standard room is about as basic as you can get! Could barely fit our suitcases in the room and had to walk sideways to get in bed. Rough wooden desk, closet and bed. Not sure if the bed was actually comfortable or we were just really, really tired! The bathroom was standard, clean, and modern but you have to sit sideways on the toilet! The rooftop solarium was small but adequate with a hot tub, sitting area and lounges. The breakfast buffet was in a nice room and offered a good selection of items and beverages. The location is convenient for walking to La Rambla and is near the port. We were glad to be spending only one night! Lots of warnings about pickpockets but didn't have any issues. Hotel has good selection of recommended restaurants and we had one of our best meals ever.

Stayed at this hotel and found the rooms to be clean and pleasant. Staff helpful and polite. Breakfast was good, plenty of it. The surrounding area is also fine, not too far away from metro station or local sights. It is true there are some unsavoury elements around but then Barcelona is a major city! We had no issues or problems. Very good hotel, I recommend it highly.

We paid a very low price for what we received. It is a really nice hotel with a premium feel to it. Especially the bathrooms are absolutely magnificent. The rooms are a bit small, but when you go on a holiday to a city like Barcelona you don't really intend to stay in your room a lot so it doesn't matter much.

Breakfast is really elaborate and even when breakfast hours reach their end, they still refill everything from chocolate bread rolls to eggs and sausages.

Staff is friendly, they are very open and social if you start off a conversation. For me, this is a big plus.

Myself and 7 friends booked this hotel via wowcher and got a great deal (£161 for return flights from Liverpool and 3 nights accommodation with breakfast) for a cheeky February getaway (sun-wed). The hotel is an excellent location, situated at the top of Las Ramblas and alongside Parallel. On arrival to the hotel the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and remained so throughout our stay. Xavi the hotel manager was extremely helpful, recommending places to eat/drink, however most of the best places are closed Mon/Tues in winter.

Our hotel room was adequately sized, very clean and cleaned every morning. Room 506, my bed was so uncomfortable felt all the springs. Only other downside to the room is the fact there is just one plug socket. There is a TV but all the English channels have poor signal (not that we watched any TV, just an observation). Our friends had street facing rooms and these were quite noisy.

The hotel wifi is excellent, ask at reception for the password

The hotel boasts the jacuzzi and sauna facilities, however these are embarrassing, the jacuzzi is ancient and was dirty. It was very shallow and cold and most of the jets didn't work. The sauna was not on during our visit and no staff available on floor -1 to assist us with this. You have to book at reception for your free visit and pay thereafter which I wouldn't recommend. There is a jacuzzi and solarium on the 5th floor, we didn't get to experience this as it was closed during the winter.

Breakfast is sufficient, although the hot food is not great. Bacon was mostly fat. Breakfast is served between 7:30 and 10:30, I would recommend getting there before 10 as most of the pastries have gone and they don't provide anymore.

On check out there is also a tourist tax to pay per person per night so be sure to save some euros. €7.26 for two people for 3 nights.

The staff and their customer service was exceptional, cannot fault them at all. They assisted us with all tourist questions and helped us to book taxi transfers and restaurant reservations.

They didnot informed about our booking.com reservation when we had arrived there. They have small room and merged two single beds always moving during night and distinguish. But it has located near the hop on hop off bus stations. And also it has staff who knows english well anyway. Will i choose the same hotel at my next visit barcelona? Certainly not!
