“Great family hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

We started our search for a Barcelona hotel for June 2014 during the summer of 2013. Our requirements were a non-smoking room, a room for two adults and two teenagers, a central location, and a reservation that could be cancelled with no penalty. It did not take us long to learn there are not many non-smoking hotels and not many rooms for 4. We used Booking.com since its search criteria included non-smoking. We also wanted a 3 star or above and a rating of 8 or above. This left us with a possible 37 properties. Then we plugged in our possible dates and started reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and found a handful of properties available. The Hotel Dante had a rating of 50 out of 516 hotels in Barcelona.

Now with regard to our stay.

We arrived at noon, but our room wasn’t ready so we dropped off our luggage and started exploring Barcelona. When we returned we found that our room was actually 2 rooms with a connecting door. That gave us 4 twin beds, two bathrooms, and two closets. The rooms were outside the elevator, but it was very quiet. The only noise we heard from outside were fireworks since we were there on a festival weekend. The closet space came in handy as we were doing laundry during our stay in Barcelona. The Splash Laundromat is about a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel.

The staff was friendly and helped with directions and activities and spoke English.

The location was good. It is in a quiet residential neighborhood. The metro is about 10 minute walk and Placa de Catalunya is about 20 minute walk. There was a grocery store just up the street and it had everything we needed. Just be aware it is closed on Sundays. However, there was a smaller store a few blocks away that was open on Sunday. There were lots of good neighborhood establishments. The McDonalds was about a 15 minute walk away.

We took the Aerobus to and from the airport. It was about a 10-15 minute walk to the stop, with luggage. We used the Universtat dropoff location and the Ugall pickup location.

Excellent location, close to Bus #58 stop. Walking distance to Gaudi's Casa Mila and Casa Batllo.
The rooms are lovely, spacious and sparklingly modern and clean. The buffet breakfast outstanding, and incredible variety and of very high quality. The front desk staff in particular were
extremely helpful in arranging tours, bus routes, sightseeing etc. They helped and answered every question in great detail and with great patience. The little market three doors down has everything you could possible need, great prices and lovely fresh bread and fruits. It took only 10 minute bus ride to get to the Pl. Catalunya. I will definitely stay at this hotel when I return to Barcelona..

Room Tip: The rooms that I have seen were all very nice and seemed quiet.

Staff was great. Room was very small (and expensive) for 3 people. For third bed in a double room I was charged an extra 30 Euros/day. I mentioned that I'm a BW Diamond member but I've been told that free upgrade was not available.

I regret you found our triple rooms small, but it is the only type of room we have available for 3 people, because of that we could not offer you an upgrade.
I hope this was not an inconvenience and see you again in a future.

We can highly recommend this hotel to anyone but especially for those needing a gluten-free diet. We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and as celiacs we were worried about buffet breakfast (would there be anything suitable for us) but it turned out to be excellent. Staff at the breakfast room was well aware of our gluten-free and lactose-free diet (we had notified the hotel beforehand) and every morning we got our own packages of gluten-free bread, muffins, cookies and corn flakes as well as lactose-free milk and yogurts! From buffet we could choose from a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, cold cuts, boiled eggs etc. (for those without food allergies there were delicious looking cheeses, buns and pastries as well). Staff at the reception was also extremely friendly and helpful, overall excellent service!

A traditional Best Western. The staff is very friendly. The location is the best of all. Close to Las Ramblas, Plaza Catalunya and Gran Via.
The rooms are very small, but I can't expect more in a city that all apts and rooms are small. For the rate it was better than my expectations.

A very nice hotel right in the center of Barcelona. The rooms were good size and sound-proof. The staff were all very helpful. The hotel has a cute café for snacks. We would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Barcelona.

just came back from Barcelona where we stayed 2 nights at this hotel following a cruise and was very happy with my choice…
i want to thank Mr Nadal for helping us with a major issue while the taxi were on strike….the day before the strike, as we were still on the cruise ship anchored at port for one night, he gave us the opportunity to bring at the hotel all our luggage so the next day we did not have to walk with them from the port….greatfully appreciated…he even gave us our room early int the morning

the hotel is well situated 4 blocks from the hop ON and hop off bus, also 15 minutes from the Plaza Catalonia

the rooms are very clean and the bathroom totally renovated with lots of water pressure….
and breakfast is included…an assorted breakfas hot and cold….

i definitely recommend this hotel and will be back

thanks again for making our stay a memorable one…..
