Location is perfect. If you catch the airport bus to the Placa de Catalyuna, a fifteen minute walk down La Rambla gets you there.
The rooms are small but very clean with excellent bathroom and possibly the best shower ever (sorry if that sounds like a certain beer advert!)
If you like "Irish" pubs, there are three within 200 meters of the hotel. We were very keen to see the Rugby match Leicester vs Ulster. It was no problem, they switched one of several TVs from football to our match.

Room Tip: The Superior room with a balcony overlooking La Rambla, is worth the extra. With goddess double glaz...

Dear customer,

We would like to thank you for all the positive feedback of our hotel, the rooms, the bathrooms and the cleanliness. We really valuate all the opinions.

We are sorry if the size of the room wasn’t totally appropriate for you during your stay.
In spite of being cozy, some of our standard rooms might seem smaller if they are compared to the superior or the superior rooms with balcony that our Hotel has, and, as well, it can seem smaller if you are coming for a long stay, that’s why we always recommend selecting a higher category of room in these cases.

All in all we are glad you had a nice experience in Barcelona and we would like to have you back whenever you visit the city again.

With all the best,

Daniel Recio
Marketing Manager

My wife and I went here fir my 32nd birthday and was very happy with this hotel.
Clean, friendly staff and at the heart of las ramblas.
Only downside to hotel would be the walls are quite thin so you can here most noise from other guests.
Breakfast is fine but don't expect a full Ulster or English fry..
All in all though I would reccomend this hotel.

It's in the heart of the Gothic district of Barcelona and on the main concourse of all the night life. It can only be expected to be 'lively' but the location is superb for all you want to visit (or jaunt back from).
It is a lively market - day and night - with friendly people and good service.
A very practical and clean hotel with staff that do their job well in this thriving city and on an often heaving boulevard.

We liked it and would definitely go again - especially around April when the market (50m away) and the harbor festivals are on. Let alone the incredible architecture with 'Gaudi blobs' all over the city. See the Cathedral, municipal Park (Sagrada Familia) and the incredible Casa Milo.

Great place to visit and thoroughly enjoy the extravagance of a culturally avant gard district.

Dear MellieLeggatt,

We would like to give you a big thank you from Barcelona for sharing your review about Arc La Rambla Hotel.
As you realize, La Rambla, as the rest of the Old Town, is a lively area; where you can find locals and tourists go all over the places: Interesting and historical buildings, colourful markets, breathtaking cathedrals… Luckily, a huge part of these sights are reachable from our hotel.

Culture is something that you will never miss in Barcelona!

We won’t say goodbye until we thank you, once again, for the nice words about our hotel and our staff. It helps us to keep on working and improving day after day.

Hopping to see you soon, do not hesitate to visit us again!

We stayed at the Arc La Rambla for 3 nights last week. Overall, hotel was OK - What you would ex[expect from a 3 * at this price level. Location is very nice Right on the La Rambla, - across the gothic quarter and 2 minutes away from La Boqueria wonderful market. Personally, i would prefer staying at the other end of the street - Closer to Placa Catalunya, which is approximate to far more attractions. Room was clean, and with a decent decoration. Although, haveing a nice Porch with view of La Rambla, on the 1st floor, had it's tole - and it tended to get quite noisy.
the biggest con was breakfast - Although we had it in our rate, after the 1st day, we skipped it and went to eat outside - Poor selection of cheese and ham, very little bread selection, almost no vegetables or fruits, etc'...
Also, we disliked the fact that after checking out, you can leave your suitcases in PAID hotel lockers - 2 EU each... seems a bit petty....

All in all, nice value for money, but don't get your hopes up!

Room Tip: Try to avoid 1st floor with La Rambla view - Tends to be noisy. See if upgrade is available - 15EU...

Dear customer,

Thank you for sharing your opinion in TA. We always valuate all the feedback, as it helps us to improve little by little.

It is true that Catalonia Square is closer to some interesting sights, depending on what you want to visit our hotel can seem closer or more distant.

Concerning the breakfast, we are sorry if it didn’t satisfy you. Nowadays we count with three different varieties of cheese, more than four different kinds of typical cold meat, ham, turkey, fruits, four different types of cereals, eggs, bacon, breads (whole wheat bread and regular), pastries, cookies, marmalades, chocolate, coffees, milk (whole and skimmed), and even we have as well coeliac breakfasts (in case any customers need it upon request) among others.

It is true that we can improve it, and so we will do thanks to your feedback and to the opinion of some other customers.

Thank you once again for taking the time to review us!

We hope to see you back if you ever come to Barcelona!



Best wishes,

Daniel Recio
Marketing Manager

We booked this for one night pre-cruise and it proved an excellent choice. Right at the end of La Rambla and therefore very convenient for strolling the area. Also, very close to the cruise terminals so a less than 10 minute taxi ride get you there.
The hotel itself is nice and our room was smart and modernised though a little small and basic. But perfect for a short stay. Free internet is a welcome service.
Rooms near the front of the hotel could be a bit noisy, but hey, it's the centre of Barcelona life!
So all in all, good value and good for a short stay.

Location was amazing but the receptionist Sonya was just super rude ... We reached there at 10.30 am she said we couldn't get a room till 2.. And thn I explained our situation that we just came from Indonesia and exhausted .... she said she will try and we left for breakfast and came back in an hour and suddenly we saw someone checking in and got a room right away and when we asked she just snubbed me off by saying I can give you a room now but it's d junior suite and Ull have to pay 30 euros extra ...and there were many more issues with her ... It was like she was giving us a hard time just cause she felt like it .... we got a room with balcony and it was really noisy ... All in all had a bad experience there and my main reason not to go back is cause of Sonya

Dear Natasha K,

In first place, we would like to thank you for sharing your opinion with us. We always appreciate all the reviews from our customers and we use them to improve our service.
We would like to remind you that the scheduled time for check-in in our hotel is at 14.00h, even though we always try our best to deliver the keys of the room as soon as possible if we have the chance.

We have as well different categories of rooms, and that’s exactly what happened in that moment: We had available another kind of room that the customers you saw checking in booked. The reason why our staff told you that we have availability in the moment for a Junior Suite was because we didn’t have, at that time in the morning, the category of the room that you booked available.

We apologize if you felt like she was giving you a hard time, but let me say that a lot of customers are happy with our Front Desk staff and, as you can read in other opinions, they are very helpful, problem-solving and more than polite.

We hope you accept our apologies if we weren’t up to your expectative.

Yours sincerely,

Daniel Recio
Marketing Manager
