“Room with a View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

Our room was on the 5th floor next to the main street. The room was clean, large, wifi, comfy large bed and large bathroom. The staff was couteous and helpful. It is in walking distant to Las Rama, Columbus statue, and the mall. Also the metro train is right out the front door. We had a nice view of the city and at night could see the Church on the mountain lit up.
The only thing was the street noise was loud and woke me up several times. It didn't look very safe if one wanted to go out around 1-4 AM. Looked like a lot of drug users, etc.

Room Tip: May want to get a room that is not on the street side.

Hotel location is ideal, being only 5 minute’s walk from La Rambla and the waterfront area. In addition, the hotel is right on the “Paral-lel” station of the Barcelona metro, making it very easy to reach from the airport. The hotel staff were friendly and very helpful with my room being of a good size and cleanliness being to a good standard. As for the breakfast buffet, this was 11 out of 10 and one of the very best I have encountered in many years of round the world travelling. I would strongly advise those booking this hotel to make sure breakfast is included; you will not be disappointed. In summary, the hotel was good value for what I paid and I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed at the Tryp Barcelona Apolo in October 2013 prior to cruising out of Barcelona. The hotel is in a great location for getting around Barcelona. Many of the places we visited were within walking distance. Restaurants and shopping was close by.

The room was clean and comfortable, but we did have a room that faced the main street and the street noise was pretty loud in the late night/early morning hours. We were pretty tired from our daily tours so we were able to sleep through most of the noise. You may want to get a room away from the main street.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. They handled their jobs professionally.

I would recommend this hotel for staying for a short stay (1 to 4) days, but if you are looking to stay longer you may want to find a more upscale hotel. Personally, I would gladly stay here again.

My rating is based on the service efforts put in by the Quality Manager Loida.
The bed in my room was very hard and made resting uncomfortable.
I spoke to Loida who took the time to find me a room with a bed that greatly improved my stay.
I will never return to this hotel as the beds are simply not good enough to represent a 4 star property.
Despite being taken care of by the sweet staff a good bed is a basic requirement for any hotel regardless og its number of stars.

This hotel is ideally located with acces to both the Metro and buses nearby whereby enabling us to visit the city easily.
The staff were both efficient and friendly.
Breakfasts were varied, good quality and plentiful.

Room Tip: We upgraded to an internal room.

This was our second stay here and once again it didn't disappoint.
We asked for an inside room, remembering that they are quieter and once again found it spotless, comfortable and with everything we needed. Cleaning each day was to a very high standard.
We bought breakfast, a substantial buffet - several varieties of everything - cereal, fruit, meat, cheese, juice, bread, pastries, hot drinks, some typical Spanish fare, all fresh and delicious. There were also a number of hot dishes, sometimes not really quite hot enough, but a blast in the microwave soon sorted that out.
The location of the hotel is excellent - right by Parallel metro station (take the exit beside the sign marked Funicular Montjuic and you arrive at the hotel entrance once you get to street level) and only 10 minutes walk from Las Ramblas. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby, too.
The most important thing to mention? The hotel staff, whether in the dining room, cleaning the rooms or at the reception desk - they just can't do enough for you. Prompt service always with a smile. What more can you ask for?
No need for us to browse for hotels - it's the Tryp Apolo every time, can't wait to go back.
