Great location!!!! big room

The hotel is stinks with smoking
The facilities are old and sometimes broken.
Breakfast is poor and there is so little of what is offered. The restaurant is very noisy.

Super location right next to metro stop. Room had a beautiful view! Nice employees!

We had a triple room and the king size bed was very comfortable (it was really nice) but the extra bed was the dreaded hard as a rock bed that you hear about in Europe. I wish that TA would add a category just for the beds, as a comfortable bed can make a huge difference. And it is so much time effort and money to go on vacation you want to be able to sleep comfortably. I think if there was a category to rate the mattress quality, hotels would have a reason to invest in nice beds and at the very least travelers would have more information.

The breakfast buffet was excellent, many high quality choices and just made breakfast easy. Best breakfast buffet of our trip.

I was in this hotel during Barcelona's game at the same time
The hotel's location is amazing! Below the hotel has a metro station, the hotel close to everything, Espanya Square, singing fountains, restaurants, a shopping mall and a 10 minutes taxi ride from the harbor and nightlife

I had a great time, fantastic holiday in this hotel is guaranteed!

This hotel is located in Plaza Espania which is a good location and has a metro station just below which makes commuting easy.
The hotel itself is good, but there is place for improvement . First I think management should send all front desk clerks to an English course, their English is very basic which makes communication difficult. Rooms are good very basically equipped. A/C thermostat doesn't work so either you freeze or you need to shut it down. The doors need to be noise proofed, we could hear everyone in the corridors.
I would suggest to replace towels as they are rather worn down, and also to replace sheets at least once during a guests stay....
Breakfast was ok.
One thing that really got me p***** off was that they charge 5€ a day for using the safe. This is really a rip off taking advantage of guests concerns from Barcelona's pickpockets

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel and our room was great with a view straight out over Plaza Espanya. The room itself was clean, well maintained and quite large. In-room wifi whilst free, was very weak and should be upgraded. The in-room safe was fine although guests have to go down to reception to obtain a lockset - a more up dated safe with a key pad in the door would be a good move. Because of the location there was some traffic noise, but this was alleviated by the excellent windows and did not cause a sleep problem.

Location was great - just outside the front door was the entrance to the Metro and the stop for the Aerobus to the airport was a few steps away. The area has several shops and restaurants, including the Las Arenas mall just over the road.

Front desk staff, while busy most of the time, were very helpful if not overly friendly.

The pool was a lovely touch, after a day of sightseeing it was perfect for a rest. Great cocktails, gorgeous view. Room was great, location perfect. Aerobus stop outside, Metro next to the hotel, shops close by, perfect.

Room service was pretty average, burger arrived cold and noodles were tasteless but apart from that everything was great.

Room Tip: As for a view of the plaza

I was at Barcelona Plaza Hotel with my boyfriend during August. Even though it is a huge hotel, I was sourprised by the close and kind aproach of its staff anytime. The pool on the 6th floor was awesome and the outstanding view from the suite allowed us to see the hot spots of Barcelona. It is very conveniently located (metro station in front of the hotel and a taxi lane, too). High standards for a reasonable fare.
