Really friendly welcome to the Cram by the English speaking staff. Very helpful Loved the location of the hotel, within walking distance of many central attractions. There is a lovely little roof top bar with a small plunge pool. Perfect for a quick drink before heading out. We would definitely go back to the Cram.

My daughter and I stayed at the CRAM at the end of May. It is in an excellent location to many of the places we wanted to visit. The rooms were very clean, tidy and well kept. The hotel is very modern with a lovely atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and helpful. When we arrived we requested a two bed room, which we had to wait a bit longer for but were given free drinks on the roof terrace, while we waited. The breakfast was excellent, with lovely views from the roof terrace. I would stay here again and recommend this hotel.

We stayed at Hotel Cram for 4 nights in late May. The location is great - really central. The rooms are comfortable and bright, though the all-white decor can look a little shabby. There is plenty of storage. The service was friendly and efficient. The best thing about the hotel is the rooftop pool and bar - fabulous views, and great to be able to dip feet into some cool water after a hot day out, while sipping a cocktail or two.

After much searching on line came across this hotel! My primary focus was location for the purpose of my business in barcelona but it ticked other boxes too! Friendly staff, great room, excellent supply of toiletries, a Michelin restaurant on site and a short walk from the aerobus stop which costs only €5.90 from the airport. As a solo female traveller I felt safe walking in this area. From this location I walked the entire city even though I bought a metro pass - never used it! The rooftop bar is bijou! The pool is really only for dipping in if you dare! My only gripe about the rooftop bar is it lacks atmosphere - some up tempo music would add to the ambience. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit!

Hotel was fresh and modern on first impression. Staff were so helpful, could not fault them one bit. Arrived in the room and it was quiet small, fine for two of us. Bed was fabulous, so comfortable. The shower pressure was great but the floor and tiles needed a deep clean as they were mouldy in places. The pool had stuff floating in it daily, should be cleaned every morning. The pool area was really relaxing day and night. The bars were expensive, charged 8, 9 and 10 euro for the same drink at different times. Would rate as a 3 star due to the hygiene. Reception also smelt of the after shock drink.

Just refurbished, fresh design. Friendly, helpful staf made us feel very welcome. Top location. Standard rooms in the rear (x11 and x12) have no street-side balcony, but are bigger, with a king bed and private terrace.

The staff here are the best and will help with anything. Without asking we were directed to restaurants, points of interest, had the metro explained to us, etc. The rooms are very nice and laid out well - nice modern accents. Tons of English channels on the TV. Best shower in Spain - dare I say Europe! - for the price! Just make sure you don't pay for breakfast. The rooftop is okay, but you can definitely get better food for less in either direction down the street.

Room Tip: Be sure to make a reservation for the Michelin star restaurant, Angle, located in the hotel!

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.

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
