The Hotel Glories is a modest hotel, quite close to La Sagrada Familia. It's about 25 mins steady walk to the beach/marina and similar to the main shopping areas, including Las Ramblas. So, as a base it's in a decent position and a quiet area at night. The first night was poor in that we were given a bedroom at the back which had a window that looked at a blank wall and the room was extremely small, however without any problem whatsoever, we were moved to a different room the day after, which overlooked the front and this was entirely adequate. We didn't eat at the hotel as breakfast was 11 euros each (Continental) and the same could be bought at several places in the area for half this. All the staff were extremely nice and couldn't do enough for you. Only once used Reception to order a taxi but the price doubled, not sure whether commission was involved. Overall, a very clean and pleasant hotel.

Room Tip: Ensure you insist on a room facing the front and at least 2nd floor upwards

Hola EssexMiket

Thank you for sharing your point of view about Hotel Glories with other Tripadvisor readers.

You are very friendly for the positive comments about the hotel and staff.

We would like to clarify that our breakfast is buffet so you can eat everything you found on the buffet, and the continental breakfast only is white coffee + croissant+ an orange juice glass.
We don´t serve continental breakfast.

About the taxi, we want to explain that there is a difference starting price. If you take the taxi on the street (2,30 €) or if you ask by phone (4,30 €). Approximate price
No matter if it's from a hotel, restaurant, etc.. the price will always be somewhat higher, that's the price for not having to wait in the street for a taxi. It has nothing to do whether or not commission.

We look forward to welcome you back soon.

Your faithfully

We stayed here on a short (2 night) City Break, Our room was somewhat small and dark however the trip was done on a budget. Having said that the room was clean and comfortable. The staff make up for any shortcomings, the two men on reception couldnt have been more helpful. Full of knowledge and answered any questions we had regarding the area, directions and travel.

The Hotel is situated near to Sagrada Familia which is a must see and plenty of nice restaurants nearby to choose from. All in all a lovely weekend break. A big 'well done' to the staff at the Hotel Glories.

Room Tip: Preferably not room 405, rather small and the only view was directly into a neighbouring room!

Took my son for a trip to the Nou Camp as a birthday surprise
Glories was excellent value for what we I paid, our room was very clean and service was first class.
Breakfast was good and set us up for our days activities.
Only a few minutes walk to the Metro then a just a few stops to city centre.
The icing on the cake was the friendliness of the staff, Lara (hope thats correct spelling) was on the late shifts during our stay nothing was any bother for her, thanks Lara.
Glories hotel was excellent value for money, I would not hesitate to use again.

We stayed at the Hotel Glories for three nights. The breakfast was not included but for about 11 euros you can have a buffet breakfast. The room was quiet small and the area was pretty quiet. However, the staff were polite. I would not stay there again purely for the size of the room and the lack of a restaurant.

+ Very cheap (43€/night for 2 people,early booking)
+ very close to bus stops
+ close to sagra da familia
+ good shower/WC
+ rooms are quite
+ free wifi works fine
+ reception helpful, understands english. fast checkin and checkout
+ location is about 10 minutes with bus/metro to Catalunya (Centre of Barca)

0 medium sound isolation
0 beds not big
0 most rooms don't have view,
0 room kinda dark even you turn on all the lights.

- not close to metro stations, it is between two stations, in Barca this means it is farthest from Metro.
- blanket was not covered with sheets, very unhygienic.
- heating system does not work when you are take your key from power plug, it takes time to get heated when you arrive to your room.
- heating system noisy (central air condition with control panel in the wall)


Notes: It is not written on website or anywhere else. If travelling from airport take No46 then H12 buses, you arrive at hotel easily and cheap.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a front view.
