“Excellent value. Clean. Well equipped. Friendly”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

My visit was for three days, partly business and then a buddy flew in to join for a couple of nights. Alternative at that price would be Ibis, which is always very functional but this was WAY more spacious.

It is an older building, rather 70's in feel but has been well kept up. E.g. the furniture is simple and not necessarily what you would put in your home, but it is absolutely fine for temporary accommodation.

Parking is indoors and secured by garage door- which I loved.

Aircon in room was absolutely perfect and was quiet. (It was 38 degrees outside!).

Neighbourhood quiet with good cafes and deli type businesses nearby, so very easy to pick up provisions.

Rooftop pool looks normal sized in the photos but actually it is really quite small, but perfect for a cool off and if you have kids they would be fine with it- just not really big enough for swimming lengths for exercise.

All in all this was, and especially considering price, superb value for money and for the money I saved on accommodation enjoyed splashing out on nights out. It is about 10 Euros taxi into the centre but you could take a tram for much less.

Must-go restaurant (pricey but fabulous and you should book) is Boca Chica! Will leave separate review for there - absolutely brilliant- they even have a DJ in the communal toilets and a girl selling Gin and Tonics!!

So glad we found Aparthotel Bertran! Parking spot (19 €/night) and price is what sold us on this place, but everything was great. However, if you need a parking spot, call in advance to reserve it. I didn't see anywhere to do it on the website, so I'm glad I called to check.
We had the "penthouse room" (not an apartment, just a hotel room). There was no fridge or anything, but a large (especially by European standards), comfortable room with a big bed and a big bathroom with bathtub (and even a bidet, if you're interested...). We also had prime access to the rooftop pool and very spacious terrace - right outside our door :) Clean room, friendly staff, working AC and TV, calm neighborhood that felt safe (residential area far from pickpockets and crowds, cheap-ish local cafés). Short walk to the Vallcarca metro and we were on the Rambla in minutes! Would stay here again, no questions asked. Only warning I would give is to anyone that has trouble walking - this area of Barcelona is very very hilly!

The Aparthotel Bertran has all the advantages of good hotel service plus the convenience of an apartment rental with 24-hour reception service, roof-top terrace with pool and rooms with plenty of space for relaxing in front of the TV or eating around the table. The hotel is in a quiet area near to the Metro station with a mini-mart almost next door with plenty of fresh fruit and local vegetables , a friendly pharmacy a couple of doors down and many patisseries in the next block as well as a pizzaria nearby. The apartment was well-equipped for self-catering and it was no trouble to request a coffee-making machine. The hotel staff were very helpful and the cleaners friendly. This is a quiet area, so it makes for a relaxing holiday. The room where we stayed didn't have a balcony, but it had everything we wanted in terms of space, wifi and air-con. Probably not the place to be if you want to be in the centre of town, but since this is only a few minutes away by metro, you can experience the buzz of the nightlife and then travel home for a restful sleep and then a swim after breakfast. We will definitely be back.

Well located apartment in a quiet area on the edge of the city, had no problems getting in and out of the City on the Metro from the nearby station Tibidabo. Pleasant, helpful night reception man gave us lots of useful info when we checked in around midnight, only had time for two nights but will return sometime in future

Room Tip: 'Penthouse' is stretching the term a bit for the room we stayed in, more of a room on the ro...

I cant comment highly enough on how good a job the hotels cleaner does on a daily basis!! I wasnt expecting the standard of the place to be too high if I am honest, but was pleasantly surprised during our stay.
We stayed in one of the top floor 'penthouses' as was described through our booking agent, and possibly the only bad comment I could make is that there wasnt a lift to any of the floors in the hotel.
The room had a nice varanda which was enclosed to keep it private, a small kitchen in the corner of the living room and a nice bathroom with a decent shower. The bedroom was spacious, although you actually walked into the bedroom through your apartments door, which wasnt the best for early morning arrivals or late night departures as the walls werent the thickest!!
Location wise, with the metro station I didnt think the hotel was situated too badly. If you came out of the station the wrong side, as has been said in earlier reviews, it can be a pain to find. However getting a T10 card and using the metro, you can be in many of this fantastic places top tourist attractions within 45 mins of leaving your hotel! We took a cab back from the port and town centre on a couple of nights and the fare was never over 15 Euros...
Perhaps another negative is the hotel staff that we encountered didnt speak the best English, however my Catalan is none existent, but I did find the couple of interactions i had beyond awkward!!
There were a number of facilities,such as a pool, which we were offered the use of but didnt take up as we just wanted to be out and about, but Im sure others would enjoy such facilities in their stay.
There is a little supermarket next door to the hotel which is reasonably priced compared to many of the shops in the city, but the hotel does offer a room service option (one which we didnt take up) and its not a bad walk to Park Guell although in places that walk can be rather hilly!!
All in all, despite the odd little negative, for the price and cleanliness alone I think its well worth considering staying here on a visit to Barcelona.

We stayed for three nights in Feb 2013. The hotel was very pleasant, nicely located in a
rather quiet street. Metro Tibidabo is a short 5mnn walk. The room was fine and comfortable.
There is no easy parking solution around, so we had to use the hotel parking. It adds 17 euro
per night to the final check, but still the overall price is very reasonable for the quality of the
accomodation.

I loved our stay at Bertran. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. The room was ok and the internet access and air-conditioning were just great. I also liked the rooftop terrace very much, amazing view over the city! It was very peaceful during nights, both the hotel guests and the neighbourhood. I liked the area very much, a local feeling with small bars and bistros and beautiful parks. Only kitchen and bathroom could've been better: the kitchen was equipped quite modesty and the temperature of the water in the shower was changing rapidly. But overall a cosy, clean and chilled place to stay. I'm absolutely going to come to Bertran the next year while I visit Barcelona again. :)
