“central friendly and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Perfectly acceptable price/quality ratio - £50 a night via lastminute, in central Barca, in June is not to be despised. Wouldn't wat to pay more - it's a very marginal 4*, but the fridge was handy for cold water/cava and it was also quiet.

Room Tip: ask not to be on the front, I'd assume rooms on the Via Laetana would be noisy.

This is not a 4* hotel. I am currently staying in a tiny, dirty and dated room. After speaking to reception we were told it's 4* due to the location.........there is a hostel two minutes up the road. Does that mean it to is 4*? I don't think so.
On the website it claims to have LCD flat screen's, some how we've magically ended up with a 14inch portable tv that is more like a throwback from the 90's.
When we enquired about an ironing board we were told the hotel only has laundry facilities which includes ironing but can take two days.
The bed is not a full size double. When you shower not only does the bathroom flood but the bedroom resembles a steam room as there is no extractor fan. The walls are paper thin which is handy if you want to listen in on what your neighbors are up to. The toilet flush button is broken and when we tried to speak to a manager he doesn't work bank holidays we were promised a call between 8:30 and 9:00 this morning..........shockingly the phone never rang.
Luckily the location is excellent therefore minimizing the time endured in this hotel. The one good thing about the room is the small balcony although the doors onto it leave a lot to be desired. All in All Barcelona is amazing and I would thoroughly recommend as for this hotel........not a chance!

Room Tip: I would not recommend this hotel at all

I was heading back into Barcelona and had to find a place to stay for 2 nights before I flew out. I saw Confortel Almirante on a hotel website but couldn't book through it, so I decided to walkin off the street and see what they had to offer. Location was perfect for where I wanted to be, the place was clean and the staff were friendly, informative and spoke good english ;)
Initially, I thought my room was small, but since I was only there for 2 nights, it had everything I needed, it was clean and I felt secure so it was perfect for my needs and the price. My only qualm was the housekeepers were a little loud in the mornings but I think it was mainly because the hotel is tiled.
I'm planning on going back to Barcelona next year so I have no hesitation in staying at the Confortel Almirante again. As long as you expect a smaller then usual room, everything else will make up for it.

We booked into this hotel as part of a deal of lastminute.com. It completely suited our needs for a nice weekend away. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on in the area and good places to eat. It is situated right next to the gothic quarter of Barcelona City Centre and therefore a good vantage point for travelling outwards.

The floor in the room was quite cold which wasn't ideal as in November, Barcelona can be a little chilly. Also we did not have a window so no view to look at. All other facilities were fine enough and as mentioned above, due it the hotels central location, a decent place to eat was not far away. There is also a metro stop not far from the hotels front door. Well worth it for a cheapish option.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have windows so if this is important to you then make sure you ask.

three stars for cleanliness and location fairly central to buses. the bare essentials are in your room, nice bathrooms, tv had several english channels consider it a bonus! Staff members were good when we indicated safe would not work they moved us to another actually nicer room. For price location and cleanliness 3 stars. There is a burger king at the corner so we did not opt for breakfast option as I like a beer with breakfast! lol

Room Tip: rooms appear bigger at front of hotel on main street not much of a view in back rooms

I am sorry to say that the only good thing about this hotel is it is situated in the centre of the Gothic quarter, within walking distance of the sea side , the Rambla and many nice places. But there is no room services ,it has small dark back rooms. A thief stole a bag full with valuable things from the reception on our arrival while we were busy with the checking in.
No value for money . Bad service, like do it yourself.

Thank you to the staff members for their very cooperative. Air condition was not working very well but the weather was good. Thank you for every thing. One elevator was not working very well but the hotel repaired immediately.
