This hotel was exactly what We ask for, from hotel in Barcelona.
A good location, has small pool for just a relaxation.
The room was clean and the stuff was nice and help in any request and information we were needed.

We stayed for almost three weeks. The rooms were quite nice, and the staff was more than accommodating, they helped with any trips and plans we had made. Most of the staff spoke very good english as well. The cleaning staff was superb. This is a none smoking establishment, but gave us a room with a large patio to accommodate our smoking, very nice touch on their part. Would stay here again if we come back to Barcelona for sure.

Boutique style hotel in a good location. The public spaces are dark and feel quite intimate. The atrium with the stark white art deco style balconies are quite stunning. Our room had a large smart tv, good furnishings ( view a bit pants from the back of the hotel!!) The bathroom was large and had a huge walk in shower. Quirky round walls in the bathroom and bedroom definitely added to the intimate feel of the hotel.

The roof top bar was closed when we visited in May 2013 but the terrace was open and staff were happy to bring drinks up from the down stairs bar. The pool is small but at night the ambiance on the terrace is lovely.

We didn't take breakfast in the hotel as it was quite expensive and there are several good cafes serving excellent breakfasts close by. We got a good rate on the room thorugh bookings.com would recommend this for young people and couples.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear have an unispiring view of flats.

We have stayed at Cram three years in a row and always 10-11 nights each stay. I was very critical last year, when the place was going downhill and was beginning to get quite worn. But now they have done a lot of improvements when it comes to the lobby and the interior in the hallways. Much more stylish and modern feeling now. But the rooms are still the same and I think they need to have a look at them soon too and do some sort of improvement. But rooms are comfortable and beds awesome. But furniture is starting to get worn and not always up to standard with a 4-star hotel.
Staff is mostly very good, except for this one guy that really should look for another job.
Come back again? Yes!

I stayed for two nights at Cram and really loved it. The hotel is very well located, right at the center of the gay district. Very close to plaza Universitat and to plaza Catalunya. My room was very clean, with air conditioner. Recommend.

First - our booking with Cram was a result of hotel Axel (just a short block away and where we stayed twice before) not meeting their advertised pricing which lead to us canceling with Axel when we discovered that Hotel Cram could offer us a superior room with a private deck for less than the falsely advertised pricing of Hotel Axel. So - we got a good sized room with private deck for really a very good price compared to other hotels in BCN and the rest of Europe. Large Bed and a great bathroom!! No issues with street noise and contrary to other postings we would daily bring back food and drink to our room without ever being called on it or having it confiscated. Room Service was also good and proactive insofar as the concierge asking about our need for an iron and ironing board because we previously asked for it. Room Service pricing was the same as on the street and not at a premium level as with most hotels - and the food was very good!! All the staff were professional and service oriented (don't expect any effusive friendliness... But you will get smiles). We had a small issue with two erroneous charges on our bill, however the front desk removed this without any argument. As we stayed for a week during the circuit festival, the hotel was full of gay men and couples...which quite frankly should give Axel a run for their money as Hotel Cram should be considered a very gay friendly hotel. Criticisms: we were given toiletries refills only once (and that was on our second day? Could have used another bar of soap). Also, the roof top has a lot of tables to eat at, but only six beds by the pool - perhaps management could review this and add a few more beds in the middle if the day to improve this offering). Overall, this was definitely one of the better hotels we stayed at and will book here again as well as actively promote a hotel pick up the pieces of an almost disappointing trip created by Hotel Axel. You have our loyalty now Cram - well done and thank you for making our stay so comfortable.

Hotel Cram is situated in the middle of the Example district of Barcelona very close to the Paseo de Gracia, Rambla de Cataluna, Plaza de Cataluna and the Ramblas.Surrounded by the cities most emblematic architecture, the hotel fits perfectly into this rich legacy. The modernist style facade dates back to 1892, and has a definite majestic elegance.The 67 rooms are planned to offer maximum comfort, they stand out warm, elegant, avant-garde aesthetic, their highly functional design and their high-tech equipment.The restaurant Angle Barcelona, 1* Michelin, is moving to Hotel Cram and will be opening its doors on June 2013, with the same philosophy and willingness to bring customers a dining experience which is sure to tantalise each one of their senses.If ABaC is the ultimate expression of Jordi Cruz' cuisine, l'Angle seeks to liven up tradition with innovative touches, high quality products and dishes altogether different from those created in the kitchens of ABaC.Attentive, warm and friendly service with common goals: to clearly convey the messages hidden in the actual recipes and define our understanding of gastronomy every day, based on memory, creativity and the best ingredients.The redesign of event and meeting rooms, whose capacities ranges from 2-70 people, placed special emphasis on enhancing light through integrated stained glass windows.The Anemos Terrace Bar, located on the 7th floor with panoramic views of Barcelona, offers a breakfast buffet from 07:00 to 11:00. It later reopens from 12.00 Am until 12.00 Pm, serving drinks, appetizers, tapas and 'informal cuisine' uninterruptedly throughout the day. The new menu offers little snapshots of the creative style of Chef Jordi Cruz. ... more   less
