Reviewed 13 August 2014

We had two rooms at this Best Western Property. One room was a Queen and the other was two singles. Best Western provides a fairly consistent offering. Nothing overly fancy. The hotel was very nice, clean and the front desk staff very accommodating, They provided has some small discounts for the Hop Hon Hop Off Bus. The rooms were Spartan but very clean and included A/C and flat screen TV. The hotel was well situated and we could walk just about everywhere and if we did not want to walk a lot we used our 2 day bus pass. The breakfast looked very good but we thought for 15E per person was a little high and opted for Coffee and Croissants at local cafes. The only critique I had was the mattresses were a little hard. Other than that it was a good stay, good value and we would stay there again,

I stayed here on a business trip that also included a stay at another hotel in the area. I found the staff at the Best Western more likely to be fluent in English, which made things easier for me. The Best Western also just felt much more like an American hotel, in case that would influence your choice. The hotel also gave me a very amusing flyer listing advice for staying safe in Barcelona (things like 'don't leave valuables in the car, etc.). The warning of pickpockets and scams on the street included things like "They will rob you!" I appreciated the sentiment but it still cracked me up....

I ordered room service a few times and the food was fine. Breakfast was included in my reservation, but otherwise I think it was very expensive for what there was. There *were* some excellent pastries and they had a good coffeemaker, but I wasn't impressed by the rest; I blame this partially on my expectations of an American breakfast so I don't really fault the hotel there. Wifi worked well and the tv was fine. The bed was great and the air-conditioning was superior to other European hotels I've stayed at. The windows also open, and the hotel is in a quiet neighborhood.

The bathroom was a little weird with the half shower door -- having an immobile shower door made it awkward to start the shower without actually getting in and having only half a door made it easy to splash on the floor. I didn't quite understand the setup. As with other European places, no box of Kleenex in the room, just three excessively wrapped and boxed tissues with the shampoo and soap...what's the deal with that?

All in all, I'd have given this place a higher mark if it weren't for the paperthin walls. I could clearly hear all the conversations going on in the rooms next to me.

The hotel has many advantages : it's situated 3 blocs away from rambla street full of restaurants and shops. The nearest metro station is hospital clinic it takes around 7 minutes of walking to reach it. There is a bus stop just outside the hotel. The staff was very helpful : they told us everything we wanted know. Upon our arrival, they gave us a paper with general security recommandations since barcelona has MANY pickpockets so pay attention especially in metros and in la rambla because it's very crowded.
The breakfast is excellent : the buffet has a wide variety of food to please every taste.
Rooms are large and very comfortable.
I would recommend this 4 star hotel to eveyone who stays in barcelona.

Great little hotel in a great location.
Staff were friendly, service was good.
Food in the restaurant was limited but ok and cooked well.

Good location and a little supermarket a few metres from the hotel to buy essentials you may need.

Overall a nice stay

Booked 3 nights in this hotel via BW points system. Closely located to the Casa Mila & Casa Battlo and very close to the subway. Great area, felt save all the time and quite at night... Because our room wasn't timely ready, we got a great upgrade to a suite. Staff was supernice & attentative to us.

This hotel is in a really good location - just four blocks from Passeig De Garcia - the main central street leading to Las Ramblas. check-in staff were the most helpful I have ever come across - giving is all the detail there was to have for getting around and out and about. We travelled with our teenage son who had a sofa bed but that was ok. Small balcony to sit out but the view was of residential buildings but to be fair having a balcony was good for me so I didn't mind.

Room was modern and clean with a separate loo to bathroom which was good for us. Modern TV but only for news channels which again wasn't a problem. My only irritation was that, whilst tea and coffee were provided in the room they were not replenished and only two small pots of milk for three people wasn't enough - not a great concern but just one of the little touches I generally enjoy!!

Would recommend if you don't mind. Five minute walk in to the centre of the City

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.
