“Good place to stay for city visit”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

The Priente is located very convenient on Les Ramblas, "the" centre road in Barcelona directly in the old city. All places of interest in the Gotic Quarter an the adjacent areas as Ribera and the old port, Barceloneta etc. can be reached by foot. The hotel itself impressed me most with its especially friendly and helpful personal. The room ( we had the standard room ) is ok for a few days city visit, was clean and properly maintained, but some may consider it a bit small ( for 2 persons). Negative we felt the fact that the front of the building to the Las Ramblas is currently subject to restauration, although during aour 5 nights stay we could not see anybody working. But there is a rack installed and consequently the window could not be opened. So my recommendation for the next time: ask for a room not showing to the Las Ramblas. Overall we appreciated our stay very much. I would rate it as Good.

Room Tip: See above - avoid rooms to the Las Ramblas.

Traveled from Wisconsin to Spain, and was disappointed
Got family room 303, am still staying in it for two more days
No air conditioning, construction noise began early in the morning.
Waiting for management to fix things.
At night, when the rooms were so warm, Marc the front desk person said nothing can be done

We recently spent 4 nights here on a city break. The location of the hotel is great for getting around and seeing Barcelona (it's a very walkable city) or for jumping on one of the organised open top bus tours which we always find useful for getting bearings.

The reception area can be a little chaotic at times but the welcome was friendly.

We were staying in an internal room, i.e. one overlooking the glass atrium of the breakfast area. It was functional and not spacious. The bathroom was similarly compact and was not always cleaned to the best standard it should have been although I would not so far as to say it was dirty. The shower had a fixed glass screen that did not prevent water going onto the bathroom floor so care must be taken after showering not to slip.

Word of warning: the mattress on the bed is extremely firm and somewhat unforgiving. And the 'pillow' is almost useless. Fold it over or ask for another from reception to bolster the support.

There was scaffolding all over the front of the hotel when we stayed there (late March 2014) and I don't know if any of those rooms over looking La Rambla were being used but we were not disturbed whilst we were there. In fact, I'm not sure that anything was actually being done.

We took breakfast at the hotel on one morning for convenience. Very limited buffet-style affair. Adequate but you can get better and cheaper at one of the many cafes or patisseries elsewhere. Tip: if you haven't paid for breakfast and decide to take it, tell them at reception the night before as it is cheaper (for some reason) than just turning up on the morning.

As this was a birthday present, I don't know how much it cost and so cannot comment on value for money but generally it was an adequate hotel.

Room Tip: I can imagine those rooms fronting La Rambla might be subject to street noise unless the windows are...

Decent hotel & location, room was suitable for the price. Hotel is being renovated, but doesn't interfere with the guests. Your choice of things to do right out front on the Ramblas. Would consider staying here again.

This hotel is located on La Rambla and is convenient. However, the bathroom is not clean at all. There's a lot of water scum to the point that it will gross you out. The paint on the tub is coming off. It does not seem that they clean the tiles in the bathroom. There is barely any space around the sink to put your necessities. The air conditioner was not working. The wifi is extremely slow to the point that it's not worth bothering with. It's nice to have but can not barely utilize it. They did not have any face towels either. I would not recommend this hotel if you are looking for a clean bathroom.

We spent 4 nights there recently, including Valentine's day. The staff are very friendly and full of fun; for Valentine's hearts and flowers appeared everywhere. The rooms are large, clean, comfortable and blessed with all one might need. Situated on the Ramblas it is ideally situated for seeing this beautiful city. We ate breakfast in the hotel, and excellent it was too. The hotel is excellent value for money; could not recommend it more.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front, onto the Ramblas give a more colourful experience but a tad noisier at times.

The location of the hotel is amazing, the rooms enough nice and very clean.
The personal is very helpful and nice.
I recomend this hotel if you want to visit Barcleona!
Close to the sea and also close to Plaza Cataluña.
The enviroment outside in Las Ramblas full of happy people.
And also close to La Boqueria.
