“Excellent location and good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

Stayed here last weekend (Fri thru Mon) for our 25th Wedding Anniversary trip with our friends and had an awesome weekend, we all totally loved Barcelona. The hotel location is excellent, just off La Rambla (which was the only small disappointment given how everyone hyped it up - some street entertainment and human statues were impressive but overall it's a long pavement with a road on either side and stalls selling the usual tourist stuff). Hotel is in one of the many paved areas, and the facilities are all that you need for a city break. Rooms were clean and of a reasonable size, beds comfortable, and décor pretty standard. The reception staff were extremely helpful. I would however recommend requesting a room at the back of the hotel as the front rooms overlook the paved street (no road) and whilst it's not busy, street cleaners and skateboarders are out at night. We stayed on 309 (3rd floor) at back but our friends stayed on 105 (first floor) at front and said, whilst it wasn't a problem, it was noisy and did wake them up a couple of times.

Another great thing about Barcelona is that the airport is close by without being noisy, so the trip to and from it took less than 30 minutes if that. It probably took us longer to taxi on the plane from terminal 2 to the run way than to get from the hotel to the airport! :-) The taxi dropped us on La Rambla when we arrived and pointed us down the paved path, which is a bit of a maze until you get used to it (or have a map! - available free from hotel - ask for detailed one as well as general one) and a word of warning, the hotel is easy to miss! The photo you see of the front is very deceptive, it looks massive but actually it's a set of normal double glass doors on a long bending paved street of mostly shops - there are two pot trees either side which double as markers to find it and cover for the entrance if you're not paying attention.

We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel, preferring local cafes for the experience, especially Nayans (which the hotel recommended and was ideal for breakfast and tapas lunch (and probably evening meal)), so can't comment on the food.

We walked from the hotel to Sagrada Familia (Guadi's unfinished Cathedral) which I'd recommend (about 40 mins or so) and you NEED to book in advance on-line before going if you want to go inside otherwise it's hours queuing around the block. The hotel has free PC internet access which we used to book it for the following day - you get a time slot to go in so there's almost no wait. You can also book to go up the towers which have excellent views but there are lots and lots (400+) of narrow steps to come down. They tell you there's no lift down but there is part of the way down. Spaces for going up the towers are limited so you need to book this in advance if you want to go up - you pay extra and they check your ticket at the lift.

From Sagrada Familia I'd recommend jumping in a cab to the Guadi Parc.

We managed to get into PLA restaurant for one of our meals (our anniversary meal, our friends were also celebrating their 35th) and this has an excellent ambiance and the food was excellent, however the two ladies both ordered the cod which we were told was slow cooked at 60 degrees, unfortunately it was not at all to their liking as it was almost transparent and had a texture of slime!, as well as being cold. Being typically English they refused to say anything or order another meal, I'm sure if we'd have commented something could have been arranged for us so would recommend the restaurant but be careful about this dish if it's on the menu. The two males chose well :-) and had excellent meals. This is a highly rated restaurant on Tripadvisor so I recommend booking, possibly even before you go - they were turning people away at the door whilst we were there (a table upstairs would be nice if you can get one). The other point to note is the wine is very expensive in our opinion, the beer however was acceptably priced. In summary, lovely place, careful with the cod fish dish, and be prepared to splash out if you like wine.

We also ate at the Hard Rock Café which was a nice experience but again busy, especially to eat outside - you can't pre-book this as normal at Hard Rock Café.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are a must if you can get them

We stayed for 4 nights and found the staff to be attentive and professional. The hotel was reasonably appointed for a 3 Star Rating and we found it clean and comfortable. After we booked we were a little apprehensive as we considered several of the more expensive hotels nearby but we found it ideal for our needs and a lot smarter than many 3 Star Hotels we've stayed in. Positioned in the heart of the Gothic Quarter we were spoilt for choice when it came to restaurants and tapas bars. A very enjoyable stay.

This hotel is located in the heart of old Barcelona, very near La Rambla. Shopping is all around as well as the Cathedral and other places of interest. The room was clean and spacious (for an in-city location) and the bathroom was large and very nice. The air conditioning was inefficient and the room was a little warm most of the time. The value was very good for the location.

I stayed at two hotels while in Barcelona ( 3 nights each) and although the other hotel had more amenities and a much higher price tag, the location of Raco del Pi made it a clear winner. The hotel is somewhat basic, but well maintained. Our room was average size, clean, bright and had a large bathroom. The staff is pleasant and helpful. They have a very nice quiet outdoor patio which is great for enjoying a bottle of wine before heading out for the night. They offer free coffee, tea, water and snacks throughout the day. Nice touch. We did not have the breakfast. We heard it wasn’t very good and there are several places nearby. If you are interested in their breakfast, don’t order it with your reservation, it appears they offer it to everyone at check in at a “special” of half price.

The best part about the hotel is the location. It is in one of the best locations in the old city. On a somewhat quiet pedestrian street near a couple of very nice squares with many good places to eat and drink. Also very near the cathedral. The best part is it is just far enough from the craziness of Las Ramblas. The price is reasonable (we prepaid). I would definitely return.

We were very happy with our stay at this hotel. It is very well located, just off the Ramblas, but on a much quieter street. Even though we were facing the street, we heard little city noise. The room was clean and comfortable and we slept well. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had not pre-booked our breakfast but they gave us a "discounted breakfast rate when we checked in which we were happy we took advantage of. We would be happy to return.

I had a small double room for one night. The location is fantastic but it is really off a predestrian street (not good if you have a car with an older GPS!) Otherwise there is nothing outstanding about it than its high ceilings. As expected with such hotels, the linen, bed, towels etc are a bit tired. Front desk was efficient and helpful though.

Room Tip: There was no view to speak of in Rm 105 but nobody stays in the room much in Barcelona anyways.
