“Perfectly nice hotel.”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

My friend and I came for a short break to barcelona and stayed in the TRYP Barcelona Apolo.
We had a room with two single beds, nice and clean. We asked for a room not over looking the road as we had read the reviews on trip advisor it was not noisy.
Overall we thought it was great. Close to les rambles but not too close. There is a metro stop right outside it is very easy to get around from this hotel.
The staff were fine.
We got a free breakfast as part of our booking and it was great.
We were able to store our bags in a cupboard on the last day so we weren't dragging them about.
It is the perfect hotel to stay in if you are coming on a sight seeing trip.
The only thing that would have been nice would be a pool but we went to another hotel bought a drink and used theres when we wanted a swim.
Its not a luxury hotel but for the prices you can get rooms for here you would be a bit mad to expect it too be amazing.

Room Tip: Ask for a room thats overlooking the courtyard.

I have just returned from a 3 day break to Barcelona with my husband and 2 children. First impressions upon arriving at the hotel from the airport was that the reception area was very nice and bright and we were checked in quite quickly. I had booked the hotel a few months in advance and had contacted the hotel to request rooms next door to each other as we had booked two double rooms. I was a bit disappointed to learn that our rooms were 4 doors apart as I had put my request in a few months in advance, however at least they were on the same floor and were not too far away! The rooms were very spacious and pleasantly decorated.

The hotels location is excellent for seeing the sights of Barcelona. Cross the road outside the hotel and walk straight along and you come straight out onto Las Ramblas. We had a baby in a buggy and a 6 year old with us and it only took about 10 minutes to walk to Las Ramblas from the hotel.

Breakfast at the hotel was excellent. There was plenty of hot and cold choices available and the breakfast area was very spacious and well set out.

If I were to return to Barcelona I would definitely choose to stay here again and would recommend it to others travelling there. The staff were very friendly and helpful and our stay was very comfortable and enjoyable.

Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice

The good location is the only redeeming quality of this hotel. We were met by rude check in staff, who argued that we had not paid for breakfast, when our letter clearly stated that we had. We had two rooms, both on the 4th floor, one at the front and one at the back. Both rooms initially appeared fine, quite large and with clean bedding. On closer inspection however they were both very tired, with taps falling off the walls, loose tiles, and grubby carpets. The power sockets were temperamental, which meant charging items difficult. The room at the front was very noisy all night with street noise, and whilst the room at the back was quiet for two nights, on the Friday and Saturday, there was a concert down the street, which meant sleep was impossible until 3am. The Windows were all very poorly fitting and single glazed. The breakfast buffet was plentiful, but it was a case of quantity over quality. On checkout the same member of staff argued about breakfast payment all over again, until I reproduced my documentation. This hotel does not deserve its four star rating. We will not be returning.

Room Tip: Definitely a room on high floor, to make sleep even possible

My family and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on our way home from the south of Spain. The hotel is in a great location and close to la rambla. However had a bit of trouble sleeping due to the noise from the street and from the neighbouring rooms even though the rooms were clean and very nice. We especially liked the personal touch with the personal welcome message. Breakfast was excellent however the dinner restaurant was not fantastic. But there are plenty of nearby restaurants to eat at. All in all good value.

This hotel is very clean and provides many amenities that are crucial for a pleasant stay.

Shuttle service from the airport, nice open lobby, quiet rooms, big windows to look out (although my rooms view wasn't fantastic, but had some view of Barcelona).


My only other grievance, is that the water tasted horrible. I tried filling up my day time water bottle, and the water tasted like a very chlorinated pool...

THANK YOU SO MUCH! For your kind words, for sharing your experience with the world…and for choosing us as you hotel to stay in Barcelona…we couldn’t be happier!
We understand that sometimes water taste changes a lot from one city to another…but in order to avoid any stomach intolerance, we recommend to drink bottled water wherever you travel!
Please count on us for your next visit to the City!
