“Centrally located and Clean!”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

We were in a renovated room across from the breakfast area. Beautiful room with spacious bathroom. Our friends were in rooms upstairs that were not renovated but still spacious and clean. When the hotel updates all the rooms then the hotel will be outstanding. Hotel also needs to incorporate one or two more american tv channels especially american news.

Room Tip: Request renovated room.

Stayed here as a package booking via travel agent as 4 star choices all full.
Excellent location for airport buses & public transport to all sights, though most walkable.
Staff including reception welcoming and friendly at all times. Clean and up to date decor, but in character with building. Good choice of English or continental style breakfast available up to noon in decent sized light airy room. There was also a cafe service during the day with own seating area next to breakfast room. Only thing I didn't like was the hinged shower screen on the bath, some water always got on the floor, why not a curtain? Rooms kept clean, floor was wood laminate instead of carpet. Large comfortable lounge to rear of reception area. I didn't use the rooftop pool which was small and great view over the rooftops to rear.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms to back, occasional traffic noise from front street but not a major issue.

We stayed 6 nights, had a deluxe room on the 6th floor with a balcony to sit outside. Would book this room again as spacious and modern. A lovely hotel, handy to main tourist areas, but off the main street, so quieter. Pool area was good and kept very clean, nice to sit around after being out all day. Very good breakfast, plenty of selection. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms 6th floor worth paying the extra money.

The Lleo is in an excellent location, 5 minutes walk from the main Catalunya square at the very top of Las Ramblas (where the airport bus comes into and the City Tour buses leave from).
The hotel seems to have refurbished a number of the floors - but not all. We were in one of the older rooms, it was spotless, with a very comfy bed - but the room looked very dated and a bit tired (next time I would request a newer room on one the refurbished floors).
A good tip is to get the bus from the Airport straight to the main square Catalunya, only took around 30/40 minutes and was very reasonable at 5.90 Euro each way. (There is a bus every 15 minutes); and as I said the hotel is only 5 minutes walk away.
Breakfast was alright - nothing special, but adequate choice.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
I would stay again - but request a newer room.

Room Tip: Definitely request one of the newer (refurbished) rooms, we had one of the older rooms on the 5th fl...

Used the Lleo as a base for 3 days in Barcelona and it couldn't have been better. The room was big, airy and clean. Only 5 minutes walk from Pl Catalunya and all the stuff around there. We'll definitely go back again

I'm not sure how the "star" rating system works but...

The hotel is in a good location, but a little pricy. Its close to the major sights and metro stops and just far enough from the bustle of La Ramblas. We came in from Madrid via the AVE train and were able to get to the hotel easily via the Metro.

Rooms were the only disappointment. I really don't understand the "hospital bed" concept. All the (twin) beds articulate which leaves the flimsy mattresses bent in the middle. If you're looking for a comfortable nights sleep I'd skip this option. From what we understood, "double" beds were standard (non-articulating)...we asked to switch after our first night when one of the beds broke (one end partially stuck in the up position), but double beds were not available. Only other issue was that there was only one usable outlet for charging devices. In room 407 the desk unit is built over one of the two outlets available. From what I now understand, rooms below the 4th floor are renovated.

We did not take the breakfast option... Did not seem like a good value considering all the great cafe options available in the area.

Staff was friendly...except for one older gentlemen at the front desk. He was not at all happy that we wanted to change rooms (due to the bed malfunction)...other staff members stepped in to help and did their best to work out a solution. On the way out of town we settled up our incidentals with cash...this older gentlemen gave me back the wrong change (10 euro) which resulted in a bit of an argument. Clearly this man was in the wrong and again another staff member (who witnessed the mistake) had to step in and rectify. Ok, mistakes happen but what a crappy way to say thanks for your business...

This hotel is situated perfectly for all wanting to be close to the Las Ramblas, in central Barcelona. It is modern, clean with a large lounge to relax in. The pool on the roof is small, but plenty of seats are available for those wanting to enjoy the sun, It even has a disabled access. The breakfast is very good, with the late finish time of 12 md, so no rushing to get in your breakfast. The room we eventually got had adjustable beds, which were very comfortable. We were shown a tiny room with a window overlooking a service shaft, but we did manage to get the room changed. The only blot on the landscape were the reception staff, who for the most part curt, even rude.

Room Tip: Just check the window, you may not get the best view on the upper floors
