“Good hotel, great location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

My wife and I stayed at the Tryp Apolo for three nights over the Easter holidays. Here's my plus points to the hotel.
Firstly, the location is brilliant! Parallel Metro station is just outside the hotel, with direct connections to many of the main tourist attractions. Very handy when you have blistered feet from walking all day, plus getting back from the Nou Camp on a busy match day! Also, the hotel is a 5 -10 minute stroll to Las Ramblas and the port area, so it's a good spot to easily reach those areas.
Secondly, the breakfasts are great! Cooked breakfasts, breads, meats, cereals, pastries, buns, fresh fruit - something for everyone! Just perfect for setting you up for the long day ahead.
Finally, the room we had was a decent size, the bed was fairly comfy, it was cleaned daily, and as requested, was to the rear of the hotel, so we didn't hear a peep all night, which was a big bonus to say the hotel is on one of the busiest roads in the centre.
The only (small) negative was the room (and probably the hotel overall) could have done with a bit of a spruce up, but not a major concern, as we weren't in Barcelona to see a hotel room!
Overall, a good base in a great location, with free Wi Fi added in, and a small charge to use printing facilities in the Business Centre - very handy for printing out those late booked excursions!

I'm fed readIng the negative reviews. Just back from 4 night trip/ stay in the hotel. Very good location - ok so there is the odd strip bar and maybe a homeless person, although we didn't see any,nearby but it's not in your face. This is a major European City and tell me one that doesn't have similar drawbacks. Never felt unsafe in this part of town at all. Yes it is a busy street and undoubtedly you need to be in a room facing the courtyard but rooms were clean, towels changed every day and breakfast was absolutely fine in a very bright dining room. Those who leave negative reviews need to realise you get what you pay for. As for check in/ check out - absolutely no problems and we found the staff to be very helpful. People need to stop being so negative just for the sake of it.

We had a very disappointing stay at this hotel, which was a special birthday break. We were initially put into Room 176, which is located directly above a noisy nightclub entrance. We complained to the night porter at 3am and again to the front desk at 8am, when we were told we'd be moved to the 6th floor that afternoon as soon as the room was ready. Upon returning to the hotel that evening we were in fact given another room on the first floor in a quieter location (internally facing towards the courtyard). Reception staff were rude, unprofessional dealing with our complaint & at no point offered any apology, which is unacceptable.

Unfortunately the hotel is also directly above the underground line, so you're woken by trains rumbling/vibrating at 5am, so any light sleepers would suffer. If you're staying at this hotel, insist on a room on floor 4,5 or 6 overlooking the internal courtyard (not the street).

Otherwise the hotel decor is tired, the breakfast buffet is average for a tourist hotel, the cleaning & porter staff are polite & helpful. The location of the hotel is good for sightseeing, but situated in a pretty run down area.

Room Tip: Floor 4,5 or 6 facing towards the internal courtyard

Family of four as a surprise 18th birthday trip for my son. 10 minute walk from Christopher Columbus, so everything in easy distance. Nice clean hotel, friendly staff, excellent buffet breakfasts. Will definitely stay there next time I go to Barcelona.

The family room was really two rooms split into one so we all had lots of privacy as well

Spent 4 nights at TRYP, which was at the cheaper end of our budget.We booked 2 x twin rooms, both of which looked recently painted and in general nice order.(There were cracked tiles in both bathrooms, but we didn't let this spoil our overall impression.)
TIP. Ask for a room at the rear of the hotel to avoid noise from what seemed a busy main road.
The area itself is not the most desirable, but is 10 mins from La Rambla, but without La Rambla prices.Metro next to the hotel was useful, direct to Nou Camp stadium.
Staff were helpful and maids always cheerful.We had a quirky welcome message inked on our mirror, which was different!
Left us with a good overall impression of a reasonably priced hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room to the rear to avoid noise

Hotel's in a good location - walkign distance from Las Ramblas. The hotel staff is very helpful and gives you good recommendations on dos and donts in Barcelona. Breakfast spread is very nice. Rooms are very nicely maintained. Recommend this place for a family vacation.

This is supposed to be a 4 Star Hotel. They have a video casino on one side, which has loud crowds all night, literally. I could hear them in my room all night and I was 6 stories up. My wide left early one morning, so I went down with her for a cab. Found two homeless persons laying on steps of their cafe. Carpets were worn in the hallways and the whole place smells like a cigarette. If you call for services, be prepared to wait a long time for them to pick up the phone. Breakfast is cheap, but it can be a like a zoo in there. One morning I went down at 7AM before work, and the doors were closed. There was a big group waiting to get in. I guess they forgot when to open. Frequently food does not get refilled. The gym is not part of the hotel, it is around the corner, and it is ok, just dirty. They will make you pay your bill when it exceeds 500 Euro, even if you have it on a credit card. Some weird policy that treats you like a deadbeat. There is a strip club across the street as well as a internet porn room. Lots of problems with this one.
